Alright then. I've recently decided to post my training log and SHAARREEE INNNN THE STR-UGGLE....brothers. *nods self-approvingly*

Sooooooo0o0ohhhrgg...eehh...EHHERMM.. *clears throat* Ahem,....I'll document the final month of preparation leading to my fight, April 25th at the Icardo center here in GOOD OL' BAKERSSSSFIELD *spits in the grass then climbs back onto his mule*.

Let me first start off by saying before this year started, it had been a long time since I had the fire to compete *cough6fukinyearscough* Normally as I touch base with my friends I would genuinely be excited to hear about their upcoming training/fights and then brush off the idea of getting back in there myself. But this Jan. when the subject came up and I got offered a spot on a charity fight card, I decided to give it a go. Why I'm realistic about reaching my ideal fighting shape by that time, I've never shied away from hard work to overcome stagnation. It's been a eye opening 3 months to say the least.

So as I've recently been accepted back into the local scene , I've come to garner the name
" Old School Madness" due to my obsession with sledge hammers, medicine balls, jump ropes, and all other forms of anaerobic medieval torture. Funnily enough, my growth in intensity has brought a few of these guys around. My after workout run is starting to get crowded.

So without further adieu , yesterdays (3-27-08) workout. I'm not sure my lingo is very accurate, so if there's any questions regarding clarification let me know.

Warm up. (2 minute breaks in-between warm ups)

Just looking at the Sledgehammer makes me sick, so I skip it. (boo - into rest)
-- to finish my conditioning segment, I burpee until Iz can't burpee no mo (about 40 with the tuck here) Once thoroughly devastated, 30 second rest into 50 meter suicides! YAAAA HEARRRRD ME!?

Road work

3 minutes rope skipping to stay warm
Jogged my usual 1 mile to start off, afterward felt like crap going into the first 600 sprint, was out of it and walking by the second. That damn Vanilla whey flavor is calling me, and I've run out of milk. *shrugs* /day.
I should have blended longer, I've got the muscle milk powder chunks stuck all up in my grill. Anyhow, gotta hit the road.

If you do these traditional style then yeah you're pretty old school.

Boxers representin' though. Glad to see you back in it, you're still a young man. And Cassius Greene, who is absolutely NOT a young man, don't take no breaks between rounds when he works out at Top Rank. lol

Position/stance jacks .....*busts Ali shuffle* LOL. :p

Ok, so Montana De Oro is a great place for kill yourself hikes and gorgeous seclusion. I would greatly recommend the run from Los Osos city area to the park. (the local cuties make the view and run that much better) bout 2 miles from the park. Morro Bay St. Park (another great uphill run section) is just around the corner as well.
Today the weather turned sour early, so I cut the day short and hit it when i got back into town.

sparred 4 rounds,
I'll add the KK and Diego style breakdown.

Things i did well. My jab is getting much more consistent in doubling up and staying crisp as the rounds progress. Must not noodle jab! I'm feeling more and more confident in my footing and working the triangle thoery.

Things i didn't. Overestimated my energy levels in the first, and had to slow for the first hald of the 2nd. Got to work on keeping my lead left hook crisp.I really need to throw it more during sparring, as it's probably the most awkward punch in my arsenal right now.
Ha! Now I get to hassle someone else for once.



Hahah too true. I'll see what i can come up with.

distracted workout today, now im feeling like a wuss because of it LOL.
