Hey man.

Did it end up being a staph infection? Was it in your bloodstream?

Have you tried out any competitions yet?

Why'd you get fired?

You caught me off guard illimatic, but thank you for reading!

I was hyper paranoid, and i wasn't hit by staph. I have had at least 3 sites on my body that i've had cystic acne though.

I am competition ready at least in my mind, but i have to wait for an opponent.

Have you considered bjj tournaments or amateur muay thai/boxing tournaments?

Day 32

I struggled through the circuit today but got in 130 pullups/dips, and 150 knees. I think i'll go with 5x30 knees now instead of 25.

I was at a high heart rate, i felt nauseous.

Sunday I had done my old circuit drill for power and speed minus the dual-arm curl. I am thinking if I'm doing the pull ups i will be working my biceps.

after the circuit I worked on the bob bag working combos.

For the PT, we are doing different styles of push-ups and core work.

Regular, diamond, side dip pushups ( where the weight is centered over one hand more), spiderman, and wide grip.

For the core:
crunches, side crunches left & right each individual, v-ups.

After this we went for 4-minute rounds on the bags for the remainder of the session.
---------------------------------------------------------

session 2, it was the same as the 1st in regards to PT.

After the PT was done I got some mitts and worked with a group of about 6 boxers. Simple combos for repetition.

Day 33
It was a free gym tonight, i got in around 4pm and did my lower body-circuit lifts.

I couldn't find any 25lb plate so I ended up putting 3 tens on each side for 105 Lb lifts.

I did 10 deadlift, 5 overhead, 5 lunges, and 5 squats a total of 6 times in 2 portions I did it over 6 rounds with 1-2 minutes of rest in between and did some light shadow boxing to keep moving.

I pretty much did bag-work the whole hour or so and then got in the ring and did some mock ground work with a 12-pound medicine ball.

I don't know where I got the eye but, I squeezed it in between the legs inside the knee-cap no further than it.

and then crossed the ankles to lock it in, and did a whole bunch of ground motions, and body strikes all while keeping my hips in the air.

I stayed through for the 6-8 session, and did some more bag-work.

with an hour to go i and jeff the coach did a light spar, we had 4x4 minute rounds...

round 1
pawed at him for awhile and used my feet. I doubled and tripled the jab a few times, but never really landed.

was tagged a little.

round 2
I started weaving to the right to gain a angle to the right with a step and was throwing a right hook on the step.

It landed a few times up top and a few to the body but not anything spectacular. I clipped him with a couple jabs.

I purposely went to the ropes to work on defense while on the ropes. I have had a lot of trouble finding a good way to recover from this spot.

round 3

I was a little more aggressive this round and fired off 2-4 right hooks up high in flurries, i wasn't hitting the mark and ended up tagging him in his shoulder.

I tagged him with a jab dead to the chin, that he complained about due to the fact he'd relaxed his jaw and wasn't biting down.

By pure luck with a straight right I tagged one of his jabs and the impact snapped his glove into the face. He commented on the idea, it wasn't one but i'll take credit.

He lit me up with jabs and rights when I tried to land right hooks up top.

round 4

it was more or less a mix of the previous 3, and was horribly gassed. I wasn't so much spent in punching power nor legs. I haven't had the opportunity to go so long before and was over-exerted I think.

When the bell sounded, i was feeling nauesus and stripped off everything asp and ran to the bathroom...thought i was going to puke but it never came.

I did shadowboxing for the remaining time, until coach said to go 2-four minute rounds of power shots.

I worked on the uppercut bag, round 1 I jabbed only I would go in and fire off 4 jabs step out and go back in. On round 2 I only used my right straight.

I went in wednesday but cannot remember so there is nothing for day 34.

I popped in around noon, and got convinced to do 12 three minute rounds in the ring with a new coach named angel.

This guy is crazy, but a good guy. We did light sparring, every once and awhile he'd stop me and show me a thing or two that he wanted me to do.

Last night i had bought some wrestling shoes and 180 inch wraps and busted them in today.

he got a lot of shots in, but I landed some. The toughest part was my defense fell apart as the rounds wore on.

Day 35
I led the group through our warmups.

During one of the exercises "circling the ring" we switched direction every 10 seconds. I threw lunges and squats in for 15 second bursts 4x out of a 4-minute round.

If i do this again we may try 5 second direction changes.

I worked with a kid on defense/offense drills for 4 rounds, then we did bag work for 6.

I decided i was going to work on my jab for the day.

------------------------------------------------------------
Session 2

I tried to do the same setup as the 1st until a hot-head decided to start his own calling which is fine...but got me angry.

after the warmups, i worked 15 rounds on the bag working primarily on my jab. At the end i was throwing right uppercuts.

I notice if I am throwing an uppercut it gasses me quicker than any other punch.

day 36 last night, forgot to log on it.

i went in on a rest day to assist with a younger-class.

I stuck around and worked with a few guys.

I had a random idea for core work a few weeks ago, you place a medicine ball inside the kneecaps and lock your ankles and squeeze inwards. Bring your knees up to an angle like that of the guard and rotate the hips left/right so your hips touch the floor. If you desire punch the ball as it's in the center or going left/right.

So i took this and had a kid who's prepping for a fight go for 1-minute, then 15 butt lift with the ball held by his knees, followed by 10 weighted pushups @ 40lb.

I've tested it on a few boxers in the gym, they say they hate it but it's a good hate.
-------------------------------------------------------

Day 37

Session 1
Led the pt so did minimal pushups/abs

4 rounds of 4-minute one min. rest of work in the ring for pt.

after our pt was over we worked on our own for an hour.
----------------------------------------------------------
session 2
led most of the PT again.
we did 2 four min round this time and then it was open gym.

I worked mainly on my footwork.

I got a chance to spar with jeff for about 4 minutes.

I wasn't throwing near as much as I normally do, I think i was working on countering him tonight.

I know i landed a few clean jabs...i got a low jab, rising right hook combo, and a nasty left hook to the body that threw him off balance that ended in him dropping to a knee.

He says it was an error in footwork but I call it a knockdown.

I ate some shots and was light on my feet, i am enjoying the purchase of wrestling shoes for sparring.

Day 37
Friday night.

I was knocked out by a illness, i think it was a simple but nasty cold.

It came on hard the 16th, i woke up around noon saturday morning and was up for maybe 10-minutes before i was out again, the next thing I knew was it was 8pm. So basically from 10pm-noon then 1215-1230 to 8pm. this lasted through wednesday.

i went in at 4pm and went through one session. I didn't have any issues doing the PT, I was tired from the exertion I went through but wasn't struggling.

I do not like a idea that jeff is trying to teach us...

He was teaching us a guard for boxing where the left hand is under the elbow of the right hand across the chest.

One of the combos he was showing s from this guard was a lead uppercut right cross left hook. Since i'm orthadox i was throwing a left uppgercut from my body....it did not generate any power at all. the only good was my right hand and left hook.

He was wanting us to learn this due to fatigue during a fight. There is no way I can ever see me utilizing this junk.

day 38.

Got a double session in tonight, it felt awesome to get through a long night again.

I worked on that newer guard not by choice, when I hit the mitts from this guard my lead uppercut was only good to set up a nasty right cross and left hook.

We primarily worked on situational sparring with defending with this guard, and attacking the guard.

At the end of the session we did 20 hammer slams into a tire and 3 flips down and back inside.

After that I convinced a guy to do a 3 minute standing tire press battle.
-----------------------------------------------------------
i got a sparring session in at the end of the night, 2 rounds with a kid named Jose.

His grandfather is one of our coaches, and is being prepped for a potential bout in about 12-weeks time.

Vince had his boy who is 138lbs spar me. I went real light on the kid.

I thought that Jose would dance around me being nearly 60lbs lighter.

I had the agility edge over him and picked his guard apart. I pressured him into the ropes where i scored many head shots.

I would say held the reach advantage but couldn't use it.

I wouldn't say i charged in on him, I would think I cut him off more than he did to me.

During the 2nd round Jeff stepped in and showed Jose a shoulder shove to get me off him on the ropes. It worked to get me away, but he didn't utilized the time to get away from the ropes.

I side-stepped and cut him on his angles. I remember going around in circles just on the ropes with him backed up.
