Fantastic Log man . I just spent the better part of my evening reading it. I to am about to embark on my journey of MMA. I about you size as well. You mind telling me what your reach is? Im 6'4 as well but slightly slimmer; I walk around at 190ish) and I hope to fight at 170 if I can. Hopefully I can utilize my reach advantage as I dont see too many 170lbers with a 83.5" reach. Keep up all the hard work man and keep all those little fellas away from you.

Crappy workout was crappy. Felt shitty today so I cut it off. Need to break up my routine now, can't depend on marathon full body's if I go more than 1x a week.

Thanks!

I have no idea what my reach is.

6'4 seems extremely tall for 170. I'd worry a bit about Corey Hilling a leg or getting handled by wrestlers at that extreme of a height. Also, cutting from 190ish to 170 at 6'4 is spreading yourself very thin (pun intended). The taller you are, the less water weight you can cut due to a larger portion of your weight being composed of bones, organs, etc. 20lbs is also a HUGE cut for a first fight. You want to gradually build up to such things.

More importantly, if you're just starting on training, don't worry about what weight class you're going to fight at. I know it's exciting and everything to think about, but in reality its such a minor detail of a huge process, and not something you should worry about until you're actually deemed ready to fight and are looking for opponents/organizations. So much can happen to your body between now and then, and your coaches can help you decide at that point.

Hope that makes sense. Good luck!

I agree. 170 is my ultimate goal. I know i spend time at 185. my metabolism hasnt changed much since highschool but my wieght is up due to being a corporate b!tch for the last 3 yrs. I dont even plan on fighting for 18 mos. I played a couple yrs of college football at a bulky 185. I ran track closer to 175. Im just natural thin. But I can also bench 205 and squat 275.

Reasons I want to get into MMA is I want to get back into the shape i was in college and surpass it. Ialso played so many team sports in my youth I never got to take Martial arts as much as I wanted. I did some wrestling in highschool. Who knows where it'll take me, maybe ill b**** out 2 wks in, but I want to at least try. Once again great work I hope I could carve a successful path such as yours.

Squats 5,4@275lbs
Overhead Squats 10,10@bar
Stiff Legged Deadlifts 10,10@135lbs
Seated Calf Raise 10,10@90lbs

Broke up my shit into 3x a week, Legs/Push/Pull. Got a sweet back pump going today, overhead squats are neat.

Tried out a new gym today. It's a very nice facility but a little too fitness clubish for my tastes... had to do a sitdown and tour, etc. Might sign up regardless, it's close, has more than what I need, and has the 24 hour aspect too. We'll run this trial and then make a choice. I still have to quit my MMA gym. Dreading that.

Babying the shoulder, still feels sketchy. Did reverse crunches on a decline bench and it was much harder.

Pull
Deadlift 5,5,5,5,5 @ 225lbs
Power Cleans 5,5 @ 135lbs
Barbell Rows 2x10 @ 65lbs
Chin Ups 10,6 @ b/w
Barbell Shrugs 10,10 @ 225lbs

215.6lbs @ 12.3% b/f

Good workout. That concludes trial run of week 1. Going to drop my squats down to 225 and start building momentum again along with other core lifts...goal is 1 set of 5 squats @ 315lbs, bench @ 225, deadlift @ 405lbs.

Secondary exercises I'll start low at 10 reps and start building, drop the rep scheme once I find the wall.

Squats 5,5,5,5,5@225lbs
Overhead Squats 10,10@50lbs
Stiff Legged Deadlifts 10,10@140lbs
Seated Calf Raise 10,10@100lbs


Weights up. I didn't want to take 3 days off but I hurt my back on the last day. Funny story, I was bragging to this yoga instructor about how flexible I am from M.M.A... I was trying to bend over and touch the floor with my palms (bad idea, my hamstrings were already sore and tight) and I tried a little too hard and I think that's what did it...It felt fine at the time, but then I went to the gym a few hours later and did 5 sets of deadlifts and 2 sets of powercleans to seal the deal. Feeling fine now but it was shit for 48 hours.
