Look into Rodney King for Boxing. Denmark Seminar is most complete from rumors. I have Streetboxing 1 and 2, with the SBG 3 parter on deck.

Sarno. Period. My dollars to your pennies that my job is brutal at times and the Pavelian/GreenGhost/Silat training with Sarno is keeping me almost bullet proof. Remember, I am a 6-1, 175lb, 48year old, glasses wearing geek. I was going to ask how the 80lb Clubbell was going, but you are just breaki...

Schedule backoff weeks and unplanned days off. This is a serious heavy schedule. NO way I could do this with my labor oriented job.

------"but he pulled my in upside down into a tombstone piledriver position, cranking my neck------"

Sounds like Bob Sapp and Minotauro. Chalk up Steve Austin as one who received permanent neck damage from the Tombstone Piledriver.

If you get Real Contact Stick Fighting from the Dog Bros you will see Top Dog's "Bunny Hop". This is good for the legs and you could add a light clubbell if you want to as a parry or reverse parry cast. This would be fun. Watch for huge volumes of power shots---forehand verticals and horizontals. Th...

Evolutionary is better. I think the harness or Gable grip is very well handled. The twister is just flash, but then again, so is flying triangles and armbars. Not fearing halfguard but embracing it is nice as well. The rubber guard is Nino Schembri's if I am not mistaken, but Bravo exploits it well....

Jiujitsu Unleashed by Eddie Bravo

Buy the book. Eddie's innovations take his JJ to a level that can no longer be described as BJJ. It is 10th Planet JJ. He uses the Harness or Gable grip extensively with underhooks, half guard, rubber guard, twister, etc. His setups and sweeps are very applicable and innovative. This kid is a bit of...

Note on mini band uprite rows. Hugh Cassidy did shoulder width uprite rows to the pec line followed by neckwork. I remember because it was an article on the weighted helmet and I was wrestling in Junior High at the time. He was a minimalist and maybe this style of uprite rowing had lost of bang per ...

Laurent told me that Relson's son is a stud. I guess Relson trusts you to play hard and be good to his son. Don't piss off the Brazilian Street Fighter!

Sounds like a good mutual workout.

Good point. I am aware of your physical talent. You have a supreme work ethic and at some point, the travel and volume, along with family, business and sleep has to be balanced.

How tall are you?? Only stop losing fat when you have Greek God abdominals like Bill Fox. Visit Green Ghost. He weighs under 200 so your strength must match his exactly. Swing two 100 Kettlebells with Fat Handles for Reps, then you will know you have ideal lean body mass. Just kidding Dylan. Why don...

I like the swipes as I have said before. Doing them interval style with rest periods saves the grip. It mimics the heavyhands double ski pole which is supremely aerobic. Your heart rate creeps up on you. Limiting the training to a density format keep the shoulders and wrists safe. I also noticed the...

The kettlebell sitting on your forearm during windmills may stimulate a pressure point on the back of your forearm. One of the effects of this point is to release the shoulder. This may be particular to you and your forearm length, bone exposure, etc. etc.. Try this experiment, after a hit or takedo...

Doing Swipes, using ten reps and high sets kicks ass. Measure your rest with a stopwatch. You can alternate with hindu squats, then take your rest period.
I really like this drill.

Could you give a run down on how you whittled your meals down to one or two at nite?? Did you just go hungry one day, or did you just minimize the two earlier meals until you were down to coffee and H2O?
