10:45 pm - my life as a wrestler, week 3
good practice this week. Getting a lot more comfortable with some of the bumps. Learned that I've been holding my legs wrong on them. I think I should be able to correct that now. My neck and shoulder are very sore, but I think that has more to do with the fact that I slept on them wrong last night (granted, being tossed around the ring for 2 hours certainly didn't help that).

Learned the hammerlock and the hammerlock reversal today. Hammerlock is fine, I need to work on the reversal. More of my tendency to be too stiff especially bad when someone is doing the hammerlock on me. Getting better at other stuff though, so its all a learning process... wheee....

New moves learned today: Leglock reversal into wrist lock (I think I'm pretty good at this), hammerlock, hammerlock reversal. 10 down, 991 to go.

Also took pictures for the website. Should get my training diary in a week or so. Decided to just go with Chris Maverick for the name for now... debated marking my hometown as Pittsburgh, but then decided to go with Cleveland... woohoo, I'll be a hated bad guy on that alone...

Hmmm... only an hour and 15 before the old palm starts blinking... I think I'll have a martini...

Current Mood: [mood icon] sore

wrestling info

Could you let me know more about this wrestling stuff you do? I have a friend who would be interested in participating as well so I would like to pass on the information to him.

Re: wrestling info

there's not much to tell really... I'd been interested in it for a long time and finally decided to do something about it. Basically what you have to do is seek out the local Indy scene and some of the groups probably have a training facillity and will allow you to take lessons for a fee (assuming you can keep up). In my case, I train with the IWC in Pittsburgh. Its actually pretty hard, and I'm always pretty sore the next day. That's about all there is.
