I've done this in Conditioning class, combined with strikes. 5 strikes, new position, 5 strikes, etc. Hammerfists, baby!

Vorpal, I agree, heavy isn't the best adjective to use. For me, I think about it as staying "connected" at the chest, but being able to switch out that pressure for knee on belly given the opportunity or need. Up, down, up down. The advantage of the mobility for me at least is being ready to take advantage of what my opponent gives me, back, arm, etc.
Yah, this is kind of the question I was trying to ask. Heavy pressure on at least one core element (head, chest, hips, etc.) while making transitions. No gaps and such.

i roll with a few very fit black belts that have 20-30 pounds on me. Surprise, surprise when i do occasionally get to a dominant position i can't physically keep them on their back (especially No Gi). So i move to try to stay on top. While moving i'm applying as much pressure as i can at all times.
I'm trying to keep them from moving, but that isn't an option. So my choices are move with them or get put in a submissive position.
