Truuuax's Training Log!

I found this thing kind of cool, so here goes my first "training log" on this forum lol... I'm not gonna be all cocky because I'm a fighter and say I'm too good to come on to forums and talk to fans and whatnot and I certainly don't mind sharing whatever strategies or techniques I used while training to maybe help you guys out.

Name: Justin Truax
Age: 21
Height: 5'10''
Weight: 210 (cutting down to 185)
Body Fat Percentage: 14.5%

First off I just want to say I SUCK AT STRIKING lol so this is all my training log is going to be (as of now) because I grew up wrestling my whole life then expanded in to jui jitsu after that. I am training at Justin Bruckmanns martial arts in Oshawa, Ontario while also training at Team Tomkins gym in London, Ontario.

When I wake up, I do my jog. This pretty much helps me wake up and get some nice clean canadian air in to my body. After the 2 km short jog (all uphill mainly) I come back to my place and start working on jabs, combo's and my maneuvers in my private gym I have downstairs.

Then I am off to Tompkins to do some muay thai (because this is a Sunday) I go Muay Thai Sun, Tues, Thurs and I do BJJ Mon, Wed, Fri! Saturday is party night.

The cardio I am put through by Shawn is relevent to the stuff Greg Jackson does to his kids, it hurts! I run for close to an hour, with maybe 5-6 minutes of walk time. And I am doing lunges, push ups, cross ins, two-a-days because I am cutting weight for my fight in November (I am fighting a middleweight).

After the cardio, I do my basic Muay Thai training which basically includes a lot of different combinations of kicks, jabs, right/left hooks, clinches, things like that.

yay. fun. im driving home now, i hate striking, i like/love being on the ground more and feeling someone tapout but this is all about being well rounded right? so i gotta learn this stuff.

On the way home, I stop off at my works gym. Where I commence my workout, which I love weightlifting.

Benchpress: 195 lbs - 3 sets, 8 reps.
(MAX is 285 flat)
Forearm curls: 12 lbs - 3 sets, 12 reps.
Quad Press: 450 lbs - 2 sets, 14 reps.
Lat Lunges: 25 lbs each arm - 3 sets, 12 reps.
Bi-Cep/Tri-Cep curls: 40 lbs each arm - 3 sets, 12 reps.
Other basic stuff: 150 sit ups, 125 pushups.
List goes on, but im getting bored.

Now I go in to the cardio room (where all the ladies go during the day) this is where I practise some grapping with my friend Dana (also trains) and we listen to music, and I lose even more weight doing this. God damn I'm gonna need lots of chicken and rice tonight.

Now as far as protein mixes and everything goes, I take whey gourmet and nitro tech. Whey gourmet for my daily workouts and nitro tech for when I go to sleep later and night and I dont want the fat to just jump on my body while I sleep.

In addition to the protein mixes (strictly for muscle and no extra fat because I want to be the biggest middleweight ever) I also eat a lot of rice and chicken as well in between. Every other day I take Xyience fat burner, a really good product to use! Then before you know it I'm at home and I go for a swim and go in to my sauna for maybe 30 minutes and then have a shower and in to bed. 15 hours down in that one day, non stop work.

Nice log, looking forward to reading it. How many amateur/pro MMA fights have you had?




What a stud

I have had 24 professional wrestling bouts and have competed in 2 provincial championships. Then once I turned 20 I got in to MMA and loved it, and have had 2 fights ever since. The bad thing about it is that I have to drive to Ohio, Montreal, Jersey or any of those places that promote it. In Ontario they are strictly against it, which sucks.

First fight I won by submission in the 2nd round, with 4 seconds left via triangle choke (the idiot didnt tap and went out) lol and then the 2nd fight the judges called a draw because the first round I was pushing the fight, 2nd round I got my ass kicked, then the third I scored a lot of takedowns and grabbed the cage (didnt think).

And to answer your other question Sic, I do forearm curls and bi-tri cep curls because forearms are devastating in the clinch for one, and if you have a rear naked choke on a guy, then you start to flex your muscle just leaves absolutely no space to breathe and either puts him out or he taps (obv)... Guys with no muscle, when they do submissions its really easy to slide in between cuz they have no muscle stopping it.

Okay. Coolio. Have you had any growth in your forearms?

When I was 14 I was so small, so thats when I first started wrestling and weightlifting. At the age of 14 I was at about 12 inches. Now, I am at 22 inches. So there has been quite the significant change in the last 7 years, lol.

Hey Justin,

I checked Sherdog.com and fcfighter.com's databases, and there's nothing there about you, why?

Are you a real fighter?

Im a HUGE fan of Justin Truax and a devoted fan of the Truax army (its what his fans like to be called because we're large in numbers and tough like military people(s)). I was lucky enough to catch both of his fights live, and let me tell you, he's as hot as he is tough...and man, that's a lot of hot/tough. After his latest fight, I was able to get my picture with him. I still have the t-shirt I was wearing at the time. It's got Truax sweat on it, which has not only help my performance in the gym, but also with the ladies on online dating networks. Anyhow, I can't wait to see your next fight, Justin. You're all about the fans for sure. Also - procreate because you have good genes.

Good luck and godbless
