Today's a fight day, so I'll give a walk through of my routine.

Jog: 1 mile
Weigh-in: I don't cut weight because I'm a natural 155.
Do bench, overhead and leg press with the weight of my opponent.
Do warm-up striking and takedowns and watch some fight tape. (I watch Chuck Liddell if I'm looking for a KO and the old Gracie's if I'm looking for a submission, tonight I'm looking for a sub.)
Fight time.

I'll post how the fight goes.

June 30 : Combat Training

2 mile jog (treadmill)
1 hour kickboxing (striking pad)
2 hours grappling, mostly guard passes
Simulated fight: 3 rounds, 5:30 minutes each (first day practicing with extended rounds)
1 more hour kickboxing and clinch striking

I made the decision to start overtraining by using weights when I jog and using 16 ounce gloves for striking instead of 12 ounce gloves, which means I'm basically adding an entire MMA glove to my hand. I also started using ankle weights for kickboxing and clinch striking. It's definitely alot more work, but once you take the weights off and hit the punching bag for a little while then you feel so much faster and stronger.

I just wish I had the time to train like that. My conditioning is great, but my stand-up needs some work. So far I havent had to use too much stand-up. These texas boys cant stop the
