    Goals 2017:

    Get more fit (RHR, endurance, attain 6 pack again this year, stronger)
    Get knee issues figured out
    Not sure if I'll continue fighting, life is good, job is good, motivation is hard. We will see.

    Same as 2015's basically plus
    Graduate and pass my licensure exam - check
    Get a job - check
    Would like to score a clean KO - almost
    Travel more - check
    Fight out of state - fail
    Stay closer to weight so I don't have to dehydrate as much - fair
    Become proficient fighting in a southpaw stance - better
    Win another pro title - fail
    Stay undefeated - fail

    Goals 2015:

    Steadily get stronger - Failed, strength training took a dive
    Stay undefeated - Check
    Make my pro debut this year - Check
    Stay in shape to take short notice fights - Check, but couldn't acquire any
    Work on my boxing - Check, but obviously keep at this

    Jogged 1200 meters, then skipped some rope and then boxing practice.

    Drilled slipping jabs mostly, but worked on slipping some 1,2's and countering to the body and then coming high with it.

    Focus was mostly on footwork.

    4 or 5 rounds light sparring with different partners only working on the above.

    Finished off with 4, 3 minute rounds on the bag.

    Found out I may be on a card in about 2 months after practice.

    Weighed 208 after practice, also started my diet back yesterday morning so just water fluctuation and being a little dehyrdrated after practice.

    Jogged a mile.
    Then a crossfit class.
    Consisted of various kettlebell exercises, box jumps, crunches, burpees and rowing.

    Followed by a short boxing practice. Practicing slipping jabs and countering with hooks.

    Jogged a mile.

    Today was a strength and conditioning day, followed by hard grappling.

    Consisted of:

    Mobility exercises for a warm up

    Fat bar dead lifts
    Cleans
    Push presses
    Pullups

    Then about a 10 minute break into live rolling for 5 min rounds and switching opponents for 4 or 5 rounds. I felt really good today.

    Weighed 210 this morning.

    1 mile jog

    Boxing technique, basically improving upon what we have been working on

    Slipping jabs, then counters off them
    Slipping crosses or jab crosses into counters
    slipping 1,2,3 and then a counter shot

    Working more on foot work and being in the correct position more than anything else

    1 mile jog

    For s&c today we did some fun stuff I think that the s&c coach saw on a ufc countdown with hendricks or something.

    It was like footwork drills with an agility ladder and hitting pads when we came out or during.

    Then 75 medicine ball squats
    75 crunches

    Then a crossfit ish workout consisting of

    single arm kettlebell swings
    single arm military presses
    single arm kettlebell release swings
    burpees
    box jumps
    pull ups

    Then my striking coach went over some kicking fundamentals. Mostly kicks from the southpaw stance that I'm not incredibly used to yet.

    Finished with 50 kicks to the bag each leg

    1 mile jog

    Grappling today, about a 2 hour practice

    Worked a guard pass to side control
    from side control to mount
    from mount to arm triangle

    Then live grappling for a while

    Decided to break my keto today
    My pro debut is going to be at a catch weight of 195 instead of the 185 I thought it was going to be. Right now weighing about 207 so gaining a couple of lbs and getting fat wont hurt. Probably will go back on keto in the future.

    1 mile jog

    A crossfit WOD consisting of:
    800 meter run
    50 pullups
    100 hand release push ups
    150 sit ups
    200 medicine ball squats (sucked)
    800 meter run
    I ran an extra 800 meters with a person that was dead last because I finished first

    Then 12, 3 minute rounds on different bags working different techniques with our coach coming around and correcting us. Like each bag was a different station.

    We got into the muay thai clinching at the end and I totally suck at it. :redface:
    Coach wants us to add about 10 minutes of thai clinch at the end of practice here and there, now I just need to remember to do that.

    I am starting keto again in the morning, I shouldn't have even stopped.

    Maxed this morning:

    Power Clean - 235
    Squat - 295
    Deadlift - 350
    Bench - 295

    Weight is 210

    Evening:

    1 mile run
    Skipped rope 10 mins
    Slipping punches drills with various partners focus on weight distribution and footwork
    Bunch of bag work as a group, each bag is a different station I want to say 5, 3 min rounds
    Also worked on my spinning back kick with the coach at the end, which was a lot of fun.

    Hamstrings already sore from maxing this morning, would have been a pretty light day if I hadn't done that.

    Sore from maxing yesterday.

    Today we did striking, focus was drilling the movements and techniques we have been working on. Pretty chill day, had some new guys come in and the coach was mostly focused on them.

    Also we worked on a lead leg, leg kick to someone in the opposite stance (orthodox v southpaw).

    Grappling day

    Basically it was all free rolling. No one coached we just got in some solid hard grappling switching different opponents every 5 minutes. Taught a guy how to stop or defend some things I was catching him. Fun practice, I was landing omaplatas on everyone.

    I wrestled until I was 18, didn't want to wrestle in college.

    Started training off and on 3 years ago to help a couple buddies out with their wrestling. Basically for fun and to have something to do.

    I didn't start training seriously until Fall of 2013 and had my first match in November of 2013.

    Squatted

    Lunged

    Kettle bell step ups on box

    Standing long jumps with and without resistance band

    High jumps on boxes, two 20 inch boxes on top of each other
