Lifting
DB Bench 6,6,5 @ 85lbs
Weighted Chin Ups 6,5,5 @ b/w+20lbs
Military Press 6,6,5 @ 135lbs

AB Complex
Weighted Twist Crunch 20,20 @45lbs
Reverse Crunch 15,15 @20lbs
Cable Crunch 20,20 @75kgs
AB Plank 1:20, 1:20

Same workout as a few days ago, upped the military press, some early failure but had a great workout. Just trying to stay active without irritating the knee. It's still feeling sketchy, I'll try BJJ on monday and see what happens, hopefully I can jump back in at full strength. About 9 weeks to fight, so I have to really get in shape now and get my striking endurance up. I want to be heavy sparring with the pros in 2 more weeks.

What's your goal from training? You want to fight? Unless you're able to cut back hours, I'd focus on one particular aspect for the time being, ie conditioning, muay thai, or bjj.

Other than that all I can say is nap between work and training. I have a very hard time getting proper sleep because training often ends around 9pm and my body and mind don't wind down until 1 or 2 am, and then I'm up at 6:30 to go to work. I've used caffeine to work around this but my body seems to be really bad at handling it because it can leave me unable to sleep and it becomes a vicious cycle. I've pretty much developed mild insomnia. It's not an easy road.
I wanna fight.. Thats my goal.. I´m up at 5am Only advantage is that Im home usually at 4pm. So I can take a nap before training. I do that every time we have a basketball match. Sometimes for a training.

Funny part is that doctors told me recently that I have "disc herniation". It doesnt need operation right know but they told me to do basketball, weight lifting, not mention Martial arts )) I do not care - my back hurts, but I need to overcome it.. I will strengthen my core so much, that I will be able to train and do sport even with that problem..

We will see, my goal is at least one mma fight until the end of this year 2010.

Yep, we all have our obstacles. Good to see you're not afraid to face it. Best of luck in your journey and your fight

BJJ

First day back. Felt pretty burned out but got a second wind by the time we rolled in advanced. I was dominant in all my rolls but only one of them was with a blue of my size. At least he's a guy who usually beats me. Knee feels real sketchy but it's managable, I just hope I can continue to work around it and still have it get better.

There's alot of bullshit surrounding my fight in april, I'm going to ask Kajan about it tomorrow and then explain what I can tomorrow.

Muay Thai/MMA

Skipping, went straight to combos. My favourite and one I'm going to try to incorporate is superman jab + straight left, also superman jab + straight left + left head kick. Mean. Sparred boxing. Did average, crappy endurance.

MMA was all wrestling. Shadowing takedowns, practicing take downs, a move where they sprawl on you and you pivot around them to be on the back, then a variation to take them into side control. Also getting out of being caught under a sprawl. Because I'm watching my knee I didn't spar takedowns today, however I roll. Was doing alright, until in a scramble the guy kind of fell on my leg weird and my knee just shot with pain. I don't know how this is going to work as far as getting it better.

So as far as the fight thing goes, talked to Kajan about it and he's pulling me out of it. This is why

If you're too lazy to click the link I'll explain here. It's tournament form meaning multiple fights in a night. It's only one 3 minute round a fight. You get stood up if you're on the ground for longer than 30 seconds. The same event earlier this month had people dropping out, ruining the tournament laid out because it often meant a guy who has fought twice in a night had to fight a guy that only fought once. Completely unfair. To be quite honest this is stone age mma, there's a reason the ufc stopped doing it like this like 10 years ago. On top of this they mentioned one of my teammates entering my weight class for the tournament so we'd possibly fighting, which is okay I suppose but it makes it really hard to train around him.

Kajan said he can try to get me on a card April 17th in vernon, same event I fought at for my first. Sounds good, just sucks it's far away again. However he said I could also fight May 29th at an event being hosted by our gym. Much better because it's close by and it'll be my training partners premiere fight after his return from thailand.

Muay Thai with Kultar, brutal warm up. Hitting pads practicing counters, as well as kicks. Good class. Knee held up but hurts now. MMA tomorrow.

Friday - MMA

All wrestling. Good class but hit the bag at the end instead of live sparring. Knee was mega hurting by the end of friday. I bought a proper wrap for the ice pack as well as a knee support to keep on and some Icy Hot. Now we hope for the best.

Saturday/Sunday - Saturday off to nurse the knee. Rest.

Monday - BJJ

Warmup drills, guard passes. Advanced class was all escapes. Was pretty good in rolling, tapped a few white belts a few times...americanas, arm bar, omoplata (suprising), kimura, triangle. Had a good roll with a brown belt with lots of positional battles. Good class, knee feels okay.

So there's been a few things brewing in my mind for awhile now. I'm thinking it's time to do the proverbial 'all in' to the fighting thing. I've outgrown Chilliwack and need to commute to Langley to be in a bigger pond. However, a 2 hour commute every evening on top of a job is kind of crippling. On top of that, I'm starting to get the itch to get out of this town and see some more of the world.

So what I'm thinking:
Feb - Keep up usual routine, get burpees going again, start finding time to work on striking endurance on my own time, improve diet (more food, leaner food)

March/April/May - Continue with Feb's routine with 2-3 trips a week to the pro gym in Langley for sparring or better classes. Win fight in Vernon...April 17th I think? (assuming I get opponent) 1 week rest immediately after. Resume training, another fight may 29th (once again assuming opponent works out).

June/July/August - Leave Canada for some better training. At first I was set on Brazil but I'm also considering L.A. Plenty of time to decide but I'll weigh my options out over the coming months.

September and on... - Return to Canada, move to Langley and find a job. Begin training at their pro gym full time. Start pro career, possibly with a drop to middleweight.



Already gave my roommate and boss notice that I'm out in June. I'll keep you guys updated as I weigh the pros and cons of Brazil vs. US. Who knows, I'm not against extending the trip if I were to find work cooking in L.A. or teaching English in Brazil. Shit, maybe both are on the horizon.

My brother went to Brazil twice and loved it. However it's a dangerous country, and Portuguese is hard to learn, as you already know.

Plus if you had to rush back to this continent for any reason, it would be a major undertaking.

Middleweight? Arent you 6´4" ? I have hard time myself imagine at 205 with 6´3" - only with 1 day pre fight weigh-ins..

I wish you best luck with starting pro career.
