  1. The weird thing I find with Judo (I train with a former Olympian and a couple of national team members) is that the guys (and girls) who trained it from childhood are some of the scariest, nastiest people to grapple with. BUT I've not yet met anyone (including black belts) who took the art up as an adult and possess anything like the motor patterns or core/grip strength. Not saying that's the rule just my personal experience. NOTE: I do know and train with tons of poepl who have very nasty Judo but it was taken up a supplementary art to their main grappling discipline where they built their
  2. Only just saw the challenge started this week so I may well do. Co-incidence as I literally just clicked the link in my bookmarks as I was cleaning out some old ones. lol Didn't fall off the wagon or anything since the last time you guys saw me so I could just pick right back up where I left off!
  3. Hmmm I see a new challenge has literally just started...maybe I should fire one back up ;-) ...wonder if I can still do my over-elaborate daily updates. lol
  4. Nice goals mate! The strange strength one is a quality idea.
  5. Busy just about covers it my friend! ;-) Everything is going very well though thanks. Got some crazy stuff coming up....like I'm filming a show in Chechnya. I have no idea why but that's what's happening. How I have to get there is an even funnier (and slightly scarier) prospect. lol. Work is solid but hectic...there's no way the building industry isn't picking back up! MMA shows are going well, started doing a grappling podcast for fun also which is doing ok after 5 episodes. Pretty much knocking around a similar weight and just reset my 5/3/1 to build up to bigger numbers again. Competin
  6. Nice goals mate. Glad everything is going well!
  7. Nice to see you lot still ticking along ;-)
  8. I don't want to put a downer on this but if we are discussing a larger man actually attacking a smaller woman with intent to harm you are going to have little option but to actually try and get the hell away as quickly as possible. There is a reality to actual fighting that just doesn't seem to get addressed in a lot of these scenarios. People have suggested some useful things: like spear defense and deflection whilst circling. All fine in theory... ...but: You're small, they're big which also means they've more weight, grip, tendon strength etc. Have you ever actually had a 6ft+ fully g
  9. For me: general 'running' is an extremely inefficient use of my time and not in line with my training goals so I don't do it and probably never will.
  10. Meat and fat. Simple, dense nutrition and massively satiating. If you're limiting carbs your replace the saved calories with the other two.
  11. 14lbs is the biggest I've swung in 24 hours. (Nov 2010) Weighed in for competition in the morning (little bit of dehydration and no carbs for several weeks) then had my fights and over the next 5 hours ate a large Pizza Hut and 20 KrispyKreme donuts. lol
  12. Cheers guys I normally screw up so badly over Christmas (typically 20lbs or so!) but this year was pretty good and already back down to where I was at start of December. Publicly stated on FB the main goal for this year was to get visible abs...game on. I've recently got addicted to logging everything using an app called 'Day One'. It's a journal app and though a tad pricy, if you have all apple devices I'd highly recommend it. Just reading the thing back on my MacBook is beautiful. Kitten is settling in very well, less shy already. As soon as I post a picture of him walking across my k
  13. The little guy is sooooo shy right now. 9 weeks old this coming Thursday. I named him 'Gato'. Just curious: for those of you who've had kittens, how long did their initial acclimatisation to new surroundings take? I'm expecting at least a week if not more and I think he's making really good progress after only 36 hours but just thought I'd ask.
  14. Hey guys, I'm sitting this one out as I have a lot of stuff going on right now so the good news is you don't have to seem my daily babble! I'm still keeping my own daily logs (it's habit by now!), 3xwk lifting & 4x week BJJ/MMA just won't be specifically logging it against goals in a challenge thread on here. ...and just for good measure: got this little guy at the weekend ;-) Also: Checkout a couple of highlights from the last show I did in Dublin on New years Eve - it was immense and the first vid is just plain beautiful! BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE WITH THEIR CHALLENGES
  15. My Mother took my advice - now lost 130 or so lbs at an average of 2lb/week for well over a year now with absolutely ZERO exercise. Proud of her.
