slipped on the start date of my new circuit weight of 120 pounds.

I wanted to start monday but I was sleeping all day from pure exhaustion from the weekend.

We went on a 4 hour drive to a fight venue friday through sunday.

Weigh-ins were friday night, fights started at 7:30 saturday night, the post fight party went till about 2am.

I bulked up a little by eating normal once again and I weighed 174 on the official scales. That's 14 pounds in 2 weeks of gain. I met a lot of great guys.

Time to grind on my cardio and power.

One way or another on monday I start my new circuit weight of 130 pounds.

I wish there was an easier way to increase my potential power without causing muscle fatigue....after two or three days of the new "heavier-circuits" I can barely move around without my legs throbbing which slows me down at work.

I am considering breaking one of my vows on supplements and sitting down with a nutritionist and seeing if I should consider some form of creatine regimen to help recover.

If you could give plasma more often I would do that instead of the creatine.

I had a busy day, 9:30am picked up my pay stub cashed it at work went and paid on my car loan, paid money to the trainer, went to a hospital to update my insurance info, stopped by a local pool at my old high school.

The highlight was finding out how cheap it would be to use the pool, it is a public one that operates year round and they only ask for $2/day.

I have been talking to my instructor about starting a "water-regimen" where I do my shadow drills in water. My goal is to start this after my next check.

I made a large mistake,

For the longest time I thought I was working with a 100 pound wieght on my cirucit drills.

Today I calculated the bar weight at 136 pounds of free weight, I believe the bar is roughly 5 pounds it is no olympic bar.

Considering my goal to reach 170 pounds of circuit weight I've made considerable progress!

I started my circuits at 80 pounds and now I'm at 56+ of what I started this year...I consider that a large feat. Hopefully I'll make the 34 pound gain on the lifts before december.

I love the way I've been working on my cardio and power, it puzzels my instructor once and awhile. The other day he was telling me I have very deceptive power.

I am struggling with my comeback to the gym, I was doing a ligt kicking drill with a pal and he checked 4 of my kicks and a week later I can barely touch the shin where all of the bruising is.

Last night set me back a bit as well, somehow I jammed all of my figers playing softball.

I finally tested the waters by attacking my bag today!

The first few right roundhouse kicks were horrific in the pain.

I threw at least 4 medium powered kicks and had to stop with any kind of power to the kicks.

After that I worked on my reverse punches, from what my instructor taught me. I was pleasantly surprised...I cracked the bag with each strike and it wasn't flying around like my free-style boxing strikes force it.

I got into the kata stance and blasted away at a single spot on the bag until I hit 100 strikes per hand.

After that I went back to the roundhouse, this time I was throwing body kicks with as much technique as possible and extremely light on the power. This I could handle. I hope my shin heals soon so I can resume the full power striking.

I put in another light session on the bag tonight:

I got in a load of beautiful right roundhouses that were for technique only.

I feel if I can't throw power strikes with my right leg I may as well work on my technique for that leg so when I am ready to start banging away I won't have too much lag-time.

After working on the right roundhouse I used a principle from the "reverse punch" from the karate if you see a lead kick coming with my lead being my left you pick it up slightly and drive off of it after it touches the floor I used this in conjunction with a right elbow.

My bag has a yellow rectangle stitched on that I use as a reference point for the face, from what I felt..heard...and saw there was a noticeable increase in overall power.

There was loud audible cracks like that of the cracks you hear on a thai pad, the interesting thing I noticed was with the added height the elbow comes crashing down with more force. I saw the bag bobbing up and down a few times.

I worked on the reverse punch more again a hundred strikes per hand, when I do this I do it for technique and let the technique prove the power base. I am wanting to engrain this powerful technique into my brain. Once I am able to speed it up I'll do so, but I feel it may be best utilized as powerful counter strike slash powerful tool to open up a person's defense.

I worked on my hand speed with general speed bag style flurries, a new drill I am loving I throw a (jab, right, jab, right) as quick as I possibly can, and a flurry of 10-16 jab, right's.

I did work on my right push kick, and a roundhouse knee along with very minimal work on a left roundhouse.

The roundhouse knee is nice, because you can trick your opponent because it employs the same technique as throwing the kick, your target with the knee can be the leg or body but the body is probably easier to strike. I had to stop due to the fact that shock travels down the shin when you throw a knee strike and it made it throb.

I have to say there is one advantage being moved back to the front at the grocery store, I have time to work on stuff during the morning prior to work now.

I put in another workout on the bag like yesterday.

I am highly invigorated with the ability to return to the bag drills.

If the schedule stays the same I can do this style of workout each day of the week.

new circuit

I worked on a vicious little circuit today.

I set my phone to countdown 5 minutes while I threw as many reverse punches as I could with good speed and form.

After this 50 light curls, 10 pushups, and 25 10-15 pound weighted standing crunches.

I went through the twice. Overall it lasted less than 12 minutes.

I plan on starting this cycle in addition to my power/cardio cycle I do already.

Next week I will be starting a new program as well. I will attempt to do this sort of cycle since it is a nice one in water for 5 reps of two minute rounds.

I am working towards a new style of mentality, if I tire during practice at the gym when I return I am weak. I already have the staying power to endure our practices but I want to make my master's mantra about me true he always tells me I have deceptive power. I will appear small but will hone my mind, body and soul into a weapon.

Last night I found a new yoga program I want to try, it is some sort of russian yoga (hatha) or something. I have two dvds of yoga that I can start as well.

IF things go as I want soon I will be working on 10 minute cycles with 6 reps to the workouts. I will become my namesake I have named for myself...the psychedelic headhunter.

Today was a semi productive day I think.

I spent about an hour assembling a charcoal smoker so I could smoke some pork loin for meals for the coming week.

As the smoker was curing I was doing katas for the karate,

When I started the drills it was 95 degrees out and I went shirtless.

I Have a large backyard, so I started off with getting into the stance left hand high right hand chambered and walked through the lead left to lead right leg 10 times down and back.

After that I worked on a 1-2 reverse punch kata drill where I did 5 sets of 100.

I worked on knees in the thai clinch, no power only technique 5 sets of 50 per leg.

After this I did a 1-2 left & right hook drill 5 sets of 100 combos of this.

The one thing I didn't work on was the power elbows.

After finishing the combo drills I worked for a very short while on the bag throwing right roundhouses. I was able to throw with heavy power for about 15 strikes then the shin started to throb...so I'm making painfully slow progress on returning to full contact kicking.

I started the new yoga program tonight.

I did 3 or 4 items out of who knows how many poses.

One of them I like and will work on is placing as it is called the center of your hand on the floor and walking your legs up into your triceps. From here you carefully roll forwards until you are supporting yourself with your hands.

for a little aid to start My forehead kept me from rolling completely forwards haha.

The other one was a shoulder roll, the way to start this was to have both elbows on the mat with your hands skywards. From here you can do both shoulders at once once you work enough.

The idea is to rotate the hand inwards from right to left so it is the opposite of the starting point from here you can drop onto the shoulder and rest.

There was some sort of squat I want to work on but can barely describe it. There are 5 different types of sessions to work through with the series I've just found.

One of the poses I call a j-stretch that is in here so I have a start on that.

I was able to test out some new grappling gloves today.

I ordered a pair of Combat Sports Supersleek training gloves from midwestfightshop.com saturday night for $26 after a few discounts and was impressed with the lining on the interior.

It has a nice lining a soft-one, I didn't expect that so I'm happy with that. There is a nice double strap wrap that has opposite directions.

I tested them out on my bag today and felt the sensation of my strikes in my arms not so much my hands. I think this is due to the padding the gloves have and the fact my knuckles are so de-sensatized to pain.
