Controlling the hip, top position in z-guard?

I’m having trouble controlling the other guys hip when I’m in his z-guard (low knee). I recently watched Kit Dale do a pass from there, where one of the important things were to control the hip with a “low underhook”, as well as pressing your hip into the opponents shin into him. This is the step I’m having trouble with. Anyone know what I’m talking about? I’m a pretty athletic guy, but I don’t wanna use too much force, rather it seems there’s something I’m missing.

Training frequency

Due to a number of lifestyle factors my training availability will be severely diminished.

I’m looking at my schedule and it looks like I can get 2x sessions comfortably, maybe 3 at a stretch and maybe a 4 day week once a month.

Anyone have experience training 2/3 sessions a week? Any success?

I’ve always had a problem with a “more” mindset. When I was bodybuilding it was 2x a day 5-6x a week for volume. When I moved onto powerlifting instead of running a 4 day program I’d end up hitting 6 sessions a week. It gives me anxiety thinking I’m falling behind the curve & the thought of going from 5-6 sessions a week to half of that is leaving me feeling like I’ll be dead in the water against my peers.

Mid-back & Rib pain

For roughly a week or so I’ve had this aching back pain in my muscles all the way around my ribs whenever I trained. According to other threads a foam roller may help, but I’ve got the feeling it won’t help with the pain on my sides. Any advice on this? Wanna get back to training asap.

Book suggestions

So I’m looking for fresh reading material. I’m not looking for books that have technique descriptions, more like philosophy and/or stories around Jiu-Jitsu. Generally doesn’t need to be purely Jiu-Jitsu based but stuff that might help me understand the mentality further…

How good can someone get if they start at age 55

Is it reasonable to think i will be able to ein against atheletic 25 year old white belts if i continue training? Or is age always going to be too big a detriment? I can best some complete newbies, if they arent too big. I know people cant say specific about me so just general thought. I have been training 1 year now.

Eta; i occasionally beat some people with my amount experience, but that is rare. That being said, i have tapped more people the last month then all the months before combined, so i am improving
