Back ground on meh:
My dream one day is to be a professional fighter. Growing up I was always beat up and bullied by my older brother who was 2 years older then me. I was a very small kid growing up, and my older brother play left tackle for a D1 college, so you can understand that there was some size difference growing up. At the age of around 15 I went to my uncles and he was a huge fight fan. I noticed that BJJ was huge tool. I started teaching myself submissions from random Youtube videos or rewinding fights. I started hitting guillotines on people when they tackled me, then I was hooked. At the age of 17 I started running to get ready for boot camp and that was my first real athletic training. I learned some martial arts in the Marines but not any sport techniques. When I got accepted into an officer-ship program I enrolled into a college, and that is when my real training began. I started going to the martial arts studio down town. I started Judo and then MMA. Judo was gay as fuck in my mind because if you take the pajamas off it is useless.
My jitz coach noticed some potential in me and took me under his wing. He took me to start training with him at his BJJ gym. I started to really get hooked, and after training for a few months I did my first tourney. I placed first in the open weight beginners division. Even though technique is a huge part of MMA and BJJ, so is strength and endurance. I do strong man training to increase my explosiveness. If there is any little thing that pro fighters do I am down for it. Olympic lifts, proper nutrition, circuits and I even own an elevation mask.
Basketball - 45min - medium intensity
10 Walking lunges with 30's each side
Side note: I am a terrible basketball player, but it is awesome cardio. I play with my buddies who are also terrible at basketball, so it is a fun way for me too warm up and work up a good sweat when I am not at the studio.
I hated every minute of training, but I said, "Don't quit.
Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion." _________________________________Muhammad Ali
