Fitting short bouts of intense exercise into a busy lifestyle
Packed my sauna suit and skipping rope into my pannier bag this morning. Soon as I finished work, I got changed into my sauna suit and set up the interval timer on my android phone and had a 20min session in the work car park.
5 secound sprints followed by 30sec slow and steady. Rinse and repeat.
I was drenched in sweat by time I was half way through. Cycled home as my cool down. Next time I intend to add ankle weights to the mix.

Taking the back from half guard
In today's no-gi class I covered how to get to half guard from being in the opponents side control, then rapidly taking the back. Key points were the deep under hook, ear placed on the shoulder just were it meets the pec muscle and posting with the other arm then launching the opponent forward as the head slips under the armpit.
Then loads of sparring from here with submissions.
