    Starting my cut for my next fight which will be September 18th. Weigh ins are the night before and I have the typical 1 pound allowance so I am actually shooting for about 146. I have about three weeks and my goal is to be 10 pounds off exactly 1 week from my fight and cut the rest via dehydration.

    Here is the current situation after a 13 week camp thus far (had two opponets drop and have just stayed in the gym)

    Height: 5"10
    Weight: 170 lbs
    WRHR: 58 bpm
    BF: 14%

    My training has consisted of 2 hour training sessions MWS, TR lifting sessions and a long slow jog every Sunday. Fridays are always off completely. My lifting routine was a variation of a 5X5 program based around increasing functional strength. My goal was to get better at three lifts; the squat deadlift and bench. I am including my PR's for these bc I am going to experiment and see how much strength, if any I lose after A. Cutting 25 lbs B. switching to a low weight circuit to boost muscular endurance and cardio leading up to the fight.

    Squat: 330lbs
    Deadlift: 265 lbs
    Bench: 195 lbs

    In next post will detail my food intake for today, Sunday August 29 along with my workput for the day. Will be using two applications on my droid (love technology man) to estimate caloric content and calories expended.

    Well Sherdog's file upload system sucks. You can't do Spreadsheets, pasting it into a document always exceeds KB width. Boo.

    During these weeks I have been MMA training 2 hrs a night mon wed and sat. On Tuesday and Thursday have been doing circuit lifting or high rep low rest sets of the big three (squat, dl and bench) as well as various grip exercises core work etc. However building my wind and doing longer aerobic runs 4 miles or so typically, in an attempt to burn more fat vs. Muscle or carbs. During this time on 9/07 I shocked myself by completing the ultimate fighter treadmill run. My cardio feels there even despite the reduced calories.

    Here is my Food Log for Sunday:

    Food Diary 9/12

    As for exercise I got up and did ABOUT 60 minutes of cardio. 25 running, 20 on elliptical (my shins are not used to all this running) and did three sets of 1 minute sprints on the versa climber followed by 5 minutes active recovery. I did that 3 times.

    Seperate Note: It is really hard to teach kindergarten when your on less than 2000 calories a day.

    Yesterday I went and had another extended cardio session. This time with a sauna top on, a hoodie and sweatpants. Burned around 700 calories. Still sweating buckets, even more than usual so I think my final 24 hours wont be too hard for getting that last 6 or so pounds off.

    Right now my WRHR is up to about 59 bpm, which is to be expected. My weight is at 156.0. Will post my food log later today from yesterday 9/14. Expect to be around 153 or so by tonight after mma practice.

    Edit: here is my food log for Tuesday

    Well I ended up making the weight (146.5) than proceeded to beat him on the feet, get slammed, than choked unconcious at the very end of the first round. Once again...back to the drawing board. But my cardio felt great, I put back on 12 pounds and didnt feel tired in the least, so feel good about how hard I trained, my cut, and my mental condiditon going into the fight (I was very calm and ready to fight) yet I still managed to shit all over myself with stupid mental mistakes which caused me to lose a fight to a guy I really had no business losing to (really I just don't think fast enough at "game speed")
