Mistiming wake up options

I’m having a problem with rushing down, especially after a knockdown. I seem to get thrown out of every wake up option I do. Or sometimes, they jump out of the situation as I’m trying to land a meaty attack. So my question is, Am I timing the meaty too late or too early?

too late

Pay attention to your character. You’ve got enough time to see if your character does something then gets thrown(too early) or you get thrown without doing something(late). Look at your replays in slow mo if you have to.

My bet is that your timing is probably all over the place, just keeps practicing.

The best advice that I can give for this is to record yourself doing meaty setups (record a sweep followed with whatever on wakeup), and try to escape them on playback.
