New to forum..sorta new to training..

Hi! I am 39 5"10" 290lbs 56"waist (Roy Nelson is my hero lol) and very out of shape..I am still very flexible and can still move pretty quick for a guy my size.I used to train in BJJ/MMA about 8 years ago when I was alot thinner..I want to get back into question is should I loose weight/get in better shape before I join a mma school or join the mma school and get in shape by training? I have been doing a "body for life" type diet and have lost 20 lbs (I was 310).Also the fact that I am you think thats too old to start again? Any info would be awesome!

LOL!! Dive on in!! I STARTED training at 41 in the worst shape of my life. Wrestled in high school all those years ago but thats it as far as anything similar goes. Going strong 2 yrs later.

Since you've done this before plan on it sucking for about 3 weeks. Start slow and remember that you don't have to keep up with the 20 year olds. Also, plan on injuries taking alot longer to hear than they used to. I bought Aaflac accident insurance and it turns out that was one of the best decisions I've made. I get paid every time I pull, twist, or torque something. It might be worth looking into as a just in case...

Good luck and welcome back to the game.
