-Age: 19
-Weight: 64kg (Normally I'm 60kg, stepped up as a late replacement for a fight had a good 3 weeks notice but didn't do it properly and just ended up with a bigger gut)
-Goals: Get stronger, lose body fat and become a better fighter.
-Basic Week:

Monday
MMA

Tuesday
Strength Training

Wednesday
MMA

Thursday
Strength Training

Friday
Rest

Saturday
Rest

Sunday
MMA

Each of those sessions is usually an hour to an hour and a half, I want to shake things up and do more. Right now I do my MMA training at a different gym from where I do weights and they are on the other side of town from each other and I don't have a car so that makes things difficult for me right now but hopefully that will change soon.

I've obviously been out enjoying to much of the warm climate here in Scotland and have picked up quite a bad cold, so I've been breathing out my ass all day. Had to take a pass on going to training, I wouldn't have done much if I had went and no one wants to roll with a guy that's sick. So I've just been lazing about taking in plenty of fluids as well as some anti bis. Anyway hopefully I feel better tomorrow and can get down to the gym and do some weights.

Squeezed in some time to get to the gym today to do a CV session to balance out the fact I couldn't get to MMA this week. Other than coughing up some green stuff in the morning I seem to have shook this cold which is great and I'll hopefully get to MMA on Sunday.

Bike, 6, 5 minutes.
Cross Trainer, 7, 5 minutes.

I really hate cramming in sessions like this, the sooner I get some new wheels the better.

Yesterday I went down to MMA and I had forgotten my usual trainer and his 2 assistants (they are not really his assistants but they are the 2 most experienced guys and they are forever showing everyone new stuff and just helping out) had went to Thailand for 2 weeks to train, pick up lots of cheap Thai gear and party hard. So we have a temp covering for 2 weeks, the guy is legit, he's friends with our usual trainer and he used to teach and fight, he has a similar style to what we do now but with a different look on things so it was pretty interesting. The only problem for me was it was a very technique heavy class with a solid heavy stretch at the beginning, so I didn't really get a good sweat on compared to our usual solid 40min of sparring/rolling. So on Wednesday I'll probably go the the gym to do some strength and conditioning before it but knowing my luck it will end up being a intense MMA session.

Are you an amateur fighter, where are you fighting and what do you fight/ walk around at?
Yeah I fight in Scotland where I live and train but I've only fought twice so far. I'm looking to do my third fight in January, and I walk around about 63kg and I fight at 61kg. Right now I've started eating more just to put on a little weight but that's really just for training I'll still fight at 61kg. I know I'm a tiny guy right? Anyway sorry for taking so long to reply I felt really burned out last week and just couldn't be bothered to blog anything.

My last week recap was this, 2 days MMA and 2 Days in the gym. I really did feel a little burned out in the gym so I was just resting up, I blame the fact that I ate a lot of crap during the week and drinking coke which I never do so I think my body just didn't like it. So I'm going to be pretty strict about that.

For this week I was in the gym on Sunday and did my usual and on Monday I was at MMA and we did a stand up session which was good fun I enjoy punching people. Anyway today I'll hit the gym and I'm back keeping the log so I'll update after that.
