Random Friday Musings 17/0409

April 17, 2009

1. Trainings been great recently things are starting to really ramp up in intensity. Its great when we have so many guys training for big fights (see absolute-combat.co.uk). Everyone is really sharp and willing to help out with whatever needs to be done. Consequently not a day goes past where i haven’t taken a hellacious beating of someone oh the joys of a professional career in mma.

2. Activation of inactive or inhibited muscle groups is something everyone should be checking out. I know that if I stretch my hip flexors aggressively then do some glute bridges before I squat, deadlift, box jump etc, i will shift more metal. Only recently have I started doing this before Muay Thai and jits. RESULT? Better at hitting stuff and a spassy bridge.

Could this all be a result of my imagination? Maybe, but for the 3 minutes it takes im going to stick with it. Activation article coming soon.

3. I hate to give props to anyone who isnt me but DNFT fighter Allan Love has done something quite remarkable. Not content with winning his 2nd Pro MMA bout. No Love went on to take Gold in the Bristol BJJ open in his weight class and the absolute, a week later he won Gold at the Grappling Challenge sub wrestling Event and to top it off last week he won his first Muay Thai bout. The guy likes to keep busy check out his blog here Allan No Love Blog.

I  actually banned him from training for a week to let a couple of niggly injuries clear up and by tues he was already doing my tits in asking to train. Any more of this shit and ill be unleashing the monkey hitman on him, but he’d probably kick its pie in too.

4. Yeah ok I just wanted to use the Hitman Monkey meme.

5. So the Cris Cyborg chick missed weight by 7lbs then promptly battered an undersized Japanese pixy girl. As someone who has spent 3hrs in a fecking sauna (and 7hrs in sauna car woo) making weight i feel that missing weight is up there with slapping children, robbing grannys and raping farm yard animals in a list of things that just arent cool.

Despite having done a shit load of physiology in Uni Ive never got a handle on the whole menstral cycle thing. Oh sure i knew it for exams but some part of my brain has decided im not supposed to know about it and im cool with that. But what sort of hormonal reaction can occur to make you miss weight by 3 kilos im not even sure mainlining cake would do that.

6. heres the blog bird for today have a good one.

    See, I appreciate the shout out and the props, especially since it got my blog loads more hits but at the same time you did pull out of going to see Crank 2 to write this which is pretty fagtacular.

    These may not be cool but are pretty hilarious.

    Missing weight by 7lbs is epic, did she even try?

    So how much weight did you lose during 3 hours in the sauna?
    Did you drink any water in that time?
