Vary Your Training Stimulus

Even the most intense workouts might allow your body to reach a plateau if you don’t have a watchful eye.

This week I’m in the LA area between two weekend long Kettlebell Athletics Kettlebell Certifications I do with Jason C. Brown. While I’m here I’m going to get to train with a few friends who I don’t see often, it’ll be cool to switch things up a little bit. I’m expecting a few differences when compared with my own workouts.

In fact, I’ve already hit a double workout my first day in Torrance. I was pretty excited about it, had a great hour long session training Muay Thai with my friend Megan and her instructor, took a two hour break then took an awesome BJJ class at Rigan Machado’s.

It’s not that I haven’t done these things before, it’s just I don’t typically do them in back to back sessions, let a lone in the same day. Yet, I feel great today! I’ve been working all morning so I’m off to the beach to do a kettlebell and TRX workout soon, no worries we’re gonna film it, and I’ll post it here for you.

Stay tuned…

BJJ Conditioning Begins

It’s about that time again.

I’ve decided to compete again. I spent some time with my friend Buiu in Miami this weekend, and the space he has created for people to train in is absolutely amazing (I’ll post photos soon) but after contemplating the tournament prior to my visit, my visit solidified that I wanted to get back at it.

It’s funny, you know. You train so hard for something…then you let it wither away.


If you remember, this all started with training hard for something.

Life isn’t easy, and we aren’t all blessed with an abundance of extra time, but when we are, we should use it to make ourselves better.

We should train, so we last a day longer.

We should not only strengthen our bodies…but our minds…the visualization of achieving what you desire.

Here’s a brief clip from my first session back, of straight conditioning, under someone’s coaching (Thanks JCB!)

I’ve got roughly 5-6 weeks depending on how you play it…

I’m excited.

I’m devoted.

I’m just gonna do it!
