Desire, Dedication and Determination. Killer Instinct's Training Log

Desire - Dedication - Determination
How much do you want it?-Desire
How much pain are you willing to endure?-Dedication
How much adversity are you willing fight?-Determination

Before I begin, allow me to introduce myself to everyone. My name is Randy Kimery Jr.: I am 17 years old, 5'9 between 181-184 pounds and not your average teenager. I am extremely dedicated to everything I do, especially anything that involves competition. My entire high school career I have never participated in the use of drugs or alcohol simply because I want to keep my body in perfect shape.

I began training in sixth grade doing pushups and crunches every night and gradually that routine became more advanced and more taxing. Upon entering high school, I started playing football and took up weight lifting. Instantly, I was in love with two things at the same time. I dedicated all my time to perfecting my craft, on and off the field but alas it was to no avail. Freshman year I didn't play simply due to inexperience. Sophomore year my coaches didn't give me a chance to show them what I could do. Junior year, I was removed from the team due to off the field issues. This is when I started lifting five days a week. I was determined to come back my senior year and dominate and finally show the world what I could do. Each day was spent pushing the iron for at least 2 hours a days and then studying film for another hour or so. Football was the only thing on my mind and by the time try outs came around I was in the best condition of my life.

Then, my world fell out beneath me. On the second day of tryouts my little cold had completely bloomed into a terrible case of mno. I couldn't eat, breath, sleep, all I could do was try to survive. Despite the pain, I practiced for three days before finally saying that I couldn't hold up any longer. I was constricted to my bed for 2 weeks, recollecting all of my training and how it all meant nothing now.

After the two week tortue, I went to the doctors only to find that my spleen had become enlarged due to the mono and of course if I was to get hit in the side hard enough, it would rupture and I would bleed internally. Brushing aside the warnings, I tried to play but had to completely change my running style (I played running back). It was completely ineffective. As the weeks progressed, my spleen finally came down to normal size and again I was ready to play. Then, during the first drill of my new return I seperate my shoulder.

Talk about bad luck. Even though my shoulder was out of place, I suited up for our game that week and paid the price. Everytime I was tackled, an immense amount of pain surged through my body. Needless to say, despite my efforts I had to take myself out of the game. So there I sat, on the sidline for the rest of the season watching all my dreams fly put the window. The amount of mental stress that I endured was off the rictor scale. To this day I still do not know how I did it.

Fast forward to a week after the season ends and there I am again, lifting 3 days a week and running 2, my normal, intense, routine. I continue this for a few months. I was a weekly viewer of UFC on Spike and got another crazy idea...'I'm going to be the best MMA fighter of all time'. My goal was set, so I joined a class that is run at my local gym and I have been taking those classes for about a month and a week now. I am in love with the sport and I can see now that God didn't intend for me to play football, he want's me to fight. And I am glad he does.

A long read, I know but I intend to post my daily workouts for everyone hear to read and hopefully become inspired through my hard work and effort to become a better fighter and person in the process. My weight training teach once said, "Shoot for the moon because even if you miss and come short, you will still be among the stars"

Your weight training coach didn't know shit about Astronomy, but I'll be interested to see what kind of stuff you are doing and good luck.

Killer_Instinct has a little shameless behaviour in the past
This week has already been a great week. Monday was my normal upper body and ab day, yesterday was my running and ab day. I operate on a basic schedule, Mon-Upperbody and lowerbody and abs. Tues-Running, abs and an Iron Gym workout. Wed- My out of the ordinary day, as you will soon read about. Thurs-Running and abs and boxing. Fri- Upper and lowerbody and abs.

Anywho, I have always wanted to push my F150 for a workout so today I did. My friend and I (His name is Josh), drove up to the local sports complex and I got to work. I pushed The truck (which weighs around 6250 lbs.) for half a mile. The sensations I got hile pushing the truck were the most intense bruning and hurting sensations I have ever experienced. But as I like to say, 'Pain is weakness leaving the body' I pushed through and completed the workout.

Josh sat in the driver's seat as I pushed the titanic vehicle in the 40 degree weather and of course me (I swear I'm crazy) thrw the shirt off and got done to buisness. The situation was ironic because the complex is also a popular hangout for the local druggies so of course they were amazed by my performance.

Out of the ordinary? Yes. Great work out? You know it. I am going to attempt this workout again next wednesday because I really feel that it did a great job working my legs. And of course to be a good fighter, I need strong legs. So for any of you who have ever wanted to push a truck around? I say go for it.

If you want strong legs you should squat. Pushing a truck/car around is a great workout though, especially for teh calves, cheers to that.

Defintiely agree with wukka, I've pushed vehicles, but only when they get stuck haha. Post your workouts and maybe some of us (wukka) can make it better.

I also suppose it would be a good idea to post my maxes to show how much I increase with my lifting. My four basic core maxes (Bench Press, Parallel Squat, Power Clean and Deadlift)
Bench-265
Power Clean-225
Parallel Squat- Around 500 something
Deadlift- Around 600

And I am currently a white belt in my MMA class which is a basic rundown of kickboxing, stand-up game, submissions, ground-game and combat hapkido which they use a belt system for. I have only been taking the class for a little over a month but I am already very dominant against the other students that are around my age, but when it comes time to spar the older guys (Namely Mr. Jay, the main instructor) he puts me back in place but he has said I am getting much better as each class passes. He says that I am strong enough, but I just need to get my technique down and of course as we all know, that comes with time.

Yeah, I just wanted a change of pace from the normal. My normal leg routine consists of one day of-

Front Squats 135 lbs. 4 Sets, 25 Reps
Straight Leg Deadlift (between 135-155 lbs) 2 sets, 12 reps
Calf Raises 135 lbs. 4 sets, 50 reps

And then another routine I do at least twice a week is

Leg Extensions on the leg machine, 90 lbs. 3 sets and between 30-50 reps

Leg curls on the leg machine, 90 lbs. 3 sets of 30-50 reps

And then of course on my running days they get a great workout. I will go more in depth with that when I complete that workout tommorrow

Thats basically an elite PL total, and those rep numbers don't add up lol. Nobody with a 600lb deadlift would only be using 155lbs for 12 reps
