  1. I'm coming up upon my 6 month anniversary of getting this zombie ligament installed in my leg. I am finally cleared to not wear a brace and return to light drilling in Jiu-Jitsu. So, here are my goals for this upcoming challenge: 1. Go to Jiu-JItsu and drill at least twice a week. (Fitness) I'm kind of giving myself an out. 2 would give me a C. 3 would give me a B. and anything more would give me an A. There are 5 classes in the morning I can attend and 5 classes in the evening. There are also opportunities for open mats that I can attend. The evening classes are kind of
  2. So just as the title suggests, I was last here prior to my surgery last August. 6 months later and I'm cleared to do some Jiu-Jitsu drills and jog. So now, I'm back! Hope to stay active with everyone.
  3. Thanks for the advice. I should know the responsible answer. I guess from my standpoint I'm blind with wanting to be able to get back to it. I'll probably just get online courses out of the way and play a ton of D&D on roll20.
  4. I'm going to be having PCL reconstruction surgery in a couple weeks (August 13th). I want to stay relatively active and not gain weight because I was trying to lose weight prior to my surgery. I don't want to get any fatter, so I'd like some suggestions on maintaining or even losing weight while recovering/rehabbing from the surgery.
  5. I've only trained at MMA gyms which there are a bunch in my area (South Orange County, CA). I'd have to drive maybe 20 miles north to find a pure boxing gym. I agree that it's harder to find a true boxing gym rather than a boxing for fitness type.
  6. Find a studio and sign up for classes?
  7. With my injury, I wasn't sure of what to do for this challenge. The official diagnosis after what my primary predicted, my MRI confirmed, and my orthopedist also confirmed is that I have a torn posterior crucial ligament or PCL. I'm waiting on a my referral to an orthopedic surgeon to confirm that I won't need surgery. I may opt for surgery if my insurance covers it because I've been dealing with this for a few years and just re-injured it. Anyway, I thought of some challenges that I could do: 1. Take notes in class. I've read about the benefits of taking notes d
  8. This is awesome. I've been playing the shit out of Far Cry 5. Far Cry 3 is still my favorite of the series.
  9. Okay, so I trained everyday last week. I felt my jiu-jitsu getting a lot better with speed and athleticism. I attribute it to the consistency of my training. I don't think I ever went less than 5 days a week during the duration of the challenge. I cleaned up my diet a little bit but did have days where I just went nuts. One of those days being when my doctor said I tore my ACL. I ended up having pizza and all this other junk food. I still managed to drop 10 pounds. I was able to get back into doing the dishes daily and while my house still needs some cleaning, it's building habits. The on
  10. I did Muay Thai for about five years. I mainly just do Jiu Jitsu now though.
  11. Monday - Wednesday = 100 Swings and 10 Turkish Getups/Day 900 x 50% Bonus = 1350 HP so far!
  12. Yeah, I was kinda avoiding the squats because I was feeling tightness in my knee. My latest challenge post goes into further detail, but it turns out I've had a torn ACL all month.
  13. So, I've been having knee pain in my right knee for the past few weeks. It started bothering me consistently after the tournament. Last night I felt my knee pull along with three pops. I was just walking turning a corner. The pain was pretty was so bad that I had to go see my doctor. I told him that back in 2009 I had torn my meniscus from training jumping guard. I described the movements, he felt my knee and gave me the bad news. My ACL was torn. He believes that I had torn it back in 2009 and it didn't really heal fully and somehow my body compensated. I'm scheduled for an MRI next Fr
  14. Weekly total is now 1140 (370 Kettlebell Swings and 40 Turkish Get Ups).
  15. Oh man. I'm seriously getting the WTH moments that @Machete posted about. I'm noticing not just an increase in my strength (Not actually measured) but I also feel faster, more agile, and have a lot more stamina. I feel myself needing fewer actual water breaks yet I'm still properly hydrating myself. I've been pretty good with those portions of my challenge this month. 1. For Whom the Bell Tolls I think I'm doing great with this part of the challenge. I've done the Simple and Sinister program 4 days last week and 3 days so far this week. I am noticing a callous forming in m
  16. A total of 400 points of Damage from last week from the TGUs then. **Leglocker grapples the dragon in an Ashi-Garami and heel hooks the big red bastard** /roll 1d20+5 /roll 1d4+3 /roll 1d6 Today, I tacked on the usual 200 from the Swings and 100 from the TGUs Weekly total so far... 900 (300 Kettlebell Swings and 30 Turkish Get Ups).
  17. I concur. Glad to see that your family stuff is calming down and crossing my fingers that it gets stabilized someday. Only critique on the calories thing. Things could also be more nutrient dense than others and thus have more, I guess quality calories. Just a heads up.
  18. And another 200 and whatever 10 Turkish Get Ups gets me.
  19. Kettlebells are still swingin'! I think I'm getting to the point where I might start looking into increasing weight. Maybe I'll do it on Monday to start a whole new week and make sure I'm not just feeling it. I'm getting compliments on my strength and dedication. Jiu-Jitsu-wise we're working on X-Guard and De La Riva and Ashi-Garami which all can be linked to my game of leg locking fools. A purple belt that has been tapping me over and over with intense pressure, I managed to get him this morning which it shouldn't feel good, but I'm not gonna lie, it felt really effing good. I'
  20. On Saturday I hit up WonderCon. I got some good deals on some stuff. I bought this Red Hood Statue for 60 bucks. Unfortunately when I got home, it was broken. I was so pissed. I ended up walking like 6 miles that day so, got some points in the Harry Potter PVP challenge and the walk to Mordor. I went to an open mat on Sunday with a friend that was visiting from Denver. One of the dudes that I competed against at the tournament was there. So we got to roll around a bit too a bit of a rematch that I was able to get the better of him that time around. It was a lot of fun and I felt good. I fel
  21. Tack on another 200 points of damage from me today. Are Turkish Get Ups worth anything? Cause I may be forgetting my sneak attack dice.
  22. Aw man, I slept on this. Anyway I can still get into this? I'd have 350 Ketttlebell Swings x 2 = 700 HP?
  23. So yesterday, I took the opportunity of getting off work early for my doctors appointment to get a haircut. It took a little longer than expected and my laziness settled in. No excuses, I took the day off. Something must have happened to my knee, maybe it's the rain. Today, I got to the gym same time as Tuesday. I figured I had time to get the kettlebells in. Unfortunately the class last night didn't bother to clean the mats. Pretty gross with old sweat and what I hope are leg hairs. So, I swept the mats and cleaned them with bleach as fast as I could and it was kind of like a qu
