Fight prep/Cut cycle
- 04-20-2005, 11:10 PM
Got back home tonight after being on the road for basically the last 5 days.
Didnt eat great while on the road, tried to keep it clean, only ate crap for 2 meals (one was beer and pizza, the other was burger and fries) ah well it was a vacation so i wasnet too anal about my diet (as much as i wanted to be)
Last night went out with a buddy for drinks, and Edited by Matthew D.. Had the best sleep of my life and woke up looking lean as i have ever looked haha.
Weighed in at 220, after a day of eating.. so im not sure what ill weigh tommorow morning, it could be that the few days of plus calories boosted my metabolism.
wrestled tonight after 5 days off, felt as good as ever, minus a bit of cardio.. nothing major though, the shoulder is feeling temporarily better. Well see what its like after i lift.

Kristopher as much as I would like to hear about your cycle I would like it if you left out the drugs that will bring more attention to the board...
- 04-21-2005, 10:47 PM
Yeah sorry about that, i was pretty tired when i wrote that, not thinking *clearly*
On a more positive note, my order from 1fast came in today, stocked up on L-tyrosine again, as well as the K-rala, and about 150g of citruilline malate.. Im gonna save that for the last 2 weeks leading up to the fight.
Used K-rala for the first time today, with my meals about 500mg.. The first time i took it i waited a little while before i ate just to gauge its effects.. started feeling lightheaded a bit, but i was hungy so i didnt wait any longer
Forgot to weigh in the morning, didnt work out today, next monday i start a new HST cycle, i decided to take a 2 week deconditioning rest instead of the 5 rep portion due to my traveling. Will be doing 12, 10, 8, 6 reps then a rest.. I really like HST and although its not specifically for gaining strength i have gained lots of it while lifting HST style, of course im sure i would regardless of lifting style.
over and out for now
04-23-2005, 03:07 PM
Day 23: Morning weight 218
Been using the K-Rala, noticed that i feel my blood sugar is more stable throughout the day, i like it!
Did some kickboxing today for about 45 minutes.. My arms/shoulders were/are really sore afterwards, so i decided not to roll afterwards.
things going well, nothing much to report other than i am going to need to find something to get rid of this loose skin on my stomach (ew)
04-25-2005, 04:28 PM
Day 25: morning weight 220
Slight fluctuation, probably because i took a couple days off and havent been lifting lately. Will be starting to lift again starting tommorow.
Joe Doerksen (won his UFC fight last weekend) just started training us here at evolution MMA, he is awesome, im going to get so much better..
Anyways i will be doing cardio before lifting on tuesday/thursday, then lifting alone on saturday i think.
still waiting on the 7-OH, but i havent ordered pins yet so it dosent really matter. Looked at pics of myself before i moved here and of me now, damn huge difference.
04-27-2005, 03:44 PM
Shoulder is starting to hurt again, started taking cissus RX 3 days ago, seems to be helping in the pain killing department a little bit, well see what happens.
7-OH showed up, just waiting on pins now, diet remaining good, still using EC stack 2-3x a day.
things going well. will update later.
04-29-2005, 05:51 PM
The cissus is really improving life for me, im back training hard, and will start lifting again next week with my coach, will be switching to a strength program from the mass building HST i was using, i was really likeing HST but my coach dosent really wanna gain weight.
Have stopped watching my weight as much, which is nice because i get anal when i watch it too much, will weigh in and take measurments again tommorow morning.
Im stoked to start taking 7-OH, i have been liking the K-RALA it helps me keep stable blood sugar levels.. makes me feel better all around.
diet has been good except last night i had a few nachos at work with cheese, bad me! could have been worse, im sure i still didnt go over my calorie level for the day.
04-29-2005, 09:00 PM
Good job keeping the log updated. Glad to hear the cissus is working, I'll have to keep that in mind. What kind of strength based training are you going to do? I guess you really can't afford to gain even muscle until your fight in June? That's great that you've got Joe Doerksen there now, have you rolled with him yet?
04-30-2005, 02:28 AM
Yeah joe is amazing, i outweigh him by about 15lbs but it dosent matter, he toys with me unless i go balls out, and even then all i can do is prolong the inevitable.Originally Posted by intv
In his gaurd i feel like im floating, and when hes on top he makes it seem like you can get away, then all the sudden your being armbarred or choked out!
im excited to see how much better i get by training with him.
I have become a believer in cissus, im glad i got 4 bottles, this stuff is as good as gold.
I can afford to gain muscle as long as my fat loss stay constant, on my lowered calorie diet im sure gaining muscle will be difficult though.
04-30-2005, 01:43 PM
Day 30: Morning weight 216
I was really suprised to see the scale so low, i took measurments today.
I suck at using the fat track, i need practice.
So.. yeah, inches off waist = good, inches off shoulders and arm and neck = bad
Cant wait to get the pins so i can get some 7OH into me and stop losing muscle
04-30-2005, 06:20 PM
Did some submission wrestling today, just a impromtu session with all the fighters here, i felt pretty ****ty, really weak, got tapped out a bunch of times, felt like quitting afterwards.. ****ing with my ego.
Not feeling in a very good mood right now.. im sure it will pass

Sucks, but I'm sure everyone has days like this. Just spend a few minutes reflecting on what gave you problems, so you can overcome it next time, then relax, kick back and get your mind off of it for the weekend.
05-01-2005, 01:52 AM
Yeah that is so true man, although i spent more than a few minutes reflecting on it, i had to get over the wanting to feel sorry for myself before i could be proactive about it.Originally Posted by intv
Thats funny, i have great standup and thought my ground game had come along more than how bad i got whupped today.
The worst was when my buddy kevin tapped me 3 times in a row with the same crucifix crank in less than 2 minutes.. that was harsh.. when i finally got my head straight i took his advice to heart and realized that it will make me better if i just chilled.
Anyways, hope you didnt get messed up too bad i hate having to goto work with a black eye.
Time for bed, im dead tired.
05-01-2005, 11:06 AM
LOL, the bruises don't bother me, but people at work (ad agency( ask me why the hell I do it when they see them. I tell them I just can't stop, it's too much fun, and nothing makes me feel so alive. I know I'll never compete - I'm too old and too busy with kids and work - I'm just there for the game.
When's your fight? What org is it under?
05-01-2005, 03:43 PM
Fight is supposed to be early june, the organization is continental fighting championships, but they have been incomunicaddo for a number of weeks now so im not sure what the heck is going on.
May 28th is a submission wrestling tourney that i will be going to, so bar everything else falls through there is still that to train for.
Nothing makes you feel more alive than getting choked out or punched in the face eh?
05-02-2005, 05:54 PM
Ok so last night i went to a freinds BBQ, i drank a 6 pack of light beer and ate a couple steaks, then ate a bunch of junk food and some non light beer, and then i ate some more junk food, and drank some more beer.... badness
Woke up this morning feeling like ass and weighing 5lbs more, trained at 12.. was not much fun cause joe was working basic side mount positions and it feels like he weighs 300lbs... just about passed out when he had his knee on my throat.
back on the diet. still waiting for pins to get here.
05-03-2005, 06:40 PM
Ok weighed in at 215 again today, did my first day of a 12 rep HST cycle.. it went very well although i felt weak and depleted.
Ok so the fight promoter finally got back to me, hopefully things work out for the fight on june 11, training is going pretty well, diet going well, just started seeing a sexy woman..
life is good.
shoulder is feeling good, nothing bad happening really.
05-06-2005, 04:06 PM
So last night i had to work a new job (sous chef at a golf resort) which was a 45 min drive each way, anyways i went like 5 hours without eating anything but snacking on **** food. Then stopped for a couple burgers at my other job (no mayo or cheese) and a couple beers, then went over to my womans place and had soem wine and cardio then had a protein shake before bed.. all in all not very good day.
Woke up this morning to the cardio class, popped an EC, then had a protein/carb shake and did the wrestling class, then had another protein/carb shake.
Man training with 2 UFC fighters is making me way better... im so stoked for my wrestling tourney coming up, i think im gonna choke a bitch out
anyways im gonna eat then go run some errands, then i have to work tonight then go out with some freinds, then hopefully some more night cardio
ya know its funny, every time i start a log on here (my third) i end up meeting a chick halfway through.. weird
05-06-2005, 10:37 PM
Brace yourselves for the influx of new logs ...Originally Posted by Kristopher
05-07-2005, 10:24 AM
Ok so i drank too much last night and barely got any sleep, going to try and catch up now with at least 4-5 hours.
i feel like ****, night cardio last night was cut short due to woman having to work early..
05-10-2005, 03:05 AM
weighing around 215 still, but probably closer to 213 or so
Training is going well, im gonna kick ass at the end of the month for sure, diet going well, i took a bit of last week off(not picture perfect, but still ok) due to female craziness.
still waiting on pins for the 7OH, they should have been here already, this is kinda pissing me off.
Im stoked this cissus stuff works so well, i have had no recurring pain in my shoulder anymore, im feeling stronger and faster overall, being injury free means i can train harder, got armbarred hard tonight and my arm was sore immediatly after but no pain after a few minutes.
life is good, just wish i could work less and train more
05-11-2005, 09:32 PM
Day 41: Morning weight 213
Got my pins today and took my first shot of 7OH, i only did 1ml.. It was my first time injecting anything into my body.. took a couple tries to get the syringe to draw properly. Was painless.. injected into the left quad with the 1" 23g, went really smoothly, feels a tiny bit sore right now but nothing serious
Anyways im going to run it at 450mg per week to start, injecting EOD
Did the morning cardio class, god it sucks. then submission wrestling. Diet is on, training feels good, i feel strong even on lower cals and all that.
I have had a bunch of different people notice that i have lost weight wihtout me even saying anything, im liking it, and im stoked to see how i like the 7OH
So anyways, that is 10lbs in a month.. not damn bad assuming is mostly fat.
Im going to take measurments tommorow so i can better gauge how the LX affects me.
05-12-2005, 10:06 AM
Damn, that's pretty good considering you're keeping your strength up. I'd think that as hard as you're training, you're pumping out cortisol, especially during those long sub wrestling sessions, so the 7-OH should help. The cissus sounds great as far as joint pain, are you noticing any pump from it?Originally Posted by Kristopher
05-12-2005, 04:32 PM
Totally, i get a great pump from the cissus I also feel that is it helping me keep my strength and endurance up.
Woke up today and did a takedown/ground'n'pound class, told myself i was going to take the day off but it looked like fun!
took measurments, abdomen is down a full inch, and chest is up a little bit.. dont know why, but im liking it!
Inject again tommorow.. oh yeah my quad got a little bit sore last night, but felt better after i massaged it for a bit.
05-13-2005, 01:38 PM
Ok my fight is on!!! im fighting some guy with a 1-1 record but i hear his gym is a joke so i should be able to sub him out no prob. im pretty stoked, that means the training goes into high gear now, im not gonna **** around and just going to go with 600mg per week of 7OH.
05-16-2005, 06:46 PM
Ok so i kinda took the weekend off, i got trashed saturday night, then ate a bunch of crap sunday night at a friends Bday party.
Starting today there is no more days off (diet wise) i have lowered my carb count a bit as well.
I can really feel the 7OH calming me down, i feel so much less stressed than when i started. Also my appetite has been reduced a great deal as well.
05-17-2005, 09:43 PM
Ok, took a quick measurement and the abdomen tape measure is down 1/2"
waist is the same, and honestly i dont know how much i have to lose on my waist, i have a very thick truck. lots of core muscle there, not much fat.
took time off work to train for fight, new schedule is as follows
M: 11:00 - conditioning - 45mins
12:00 sub wrestling - 1.5 hours
7:00 sub wrestling - 1.5 hours
T: 11:00 15mins bag work - 30 mins running
12:00 - MMA class
5:30 - takedown class
7:00 - boxing class
W (repeat monday)
T(repeat tuesday xcept thai boxing and sparring for last 2 classes)
S 12:00ish sparring
its pretty intense, i hope i live through it. If i wasent on stuff like 7OH and cissus id probaly end looking like a starving ethiopian.
05-18-2005, 10:27 AM
Holy ****, man, isn't that around 20 hours of training a week or so?!? Fcking hardcore - on one hand I envy you for being able to take that much time for training, but on the other hand...damn that sounds hard! Wrestling/takedown really taxes my CNS, kicks my ass. So how close are you to making your weight? Make sure you get exta cals for that new schedule, you're gonna need it!
05-18-2005, 06:13 PM
Yeah i felt like hell today after yesterdays takedown class, holy crap i felt like falling asleep during wreslting today, that being said i feel like a tank even when im tired, it is forcing my technique to be really good, and it is GETTING really good.
Yeah im taking tonights class off because my shoulder was killing me after todays class, it feels like the cissus cant keep up with the abuse im doing to my body haha
doing another shot of 7OH today, left glute this time.
I made a bad mistake last night and promised to be DD for some freinds last night and got to bed late and didnt eat well enough last night, thats probably why i felt so crappy this morning, i need to eat more!
so glad i dont have to work for the next little bit
05-20-2005, 03:49 PM
Ok i have been overtraining myself.. have had to take some classes off, and will be taking this weekend off,
not much to report, i have felt really bad lately.. tired all the time.. so i put the diet on hold and started to eat more food, i will continue to take this weekend off and hopefully go hard starting monday,
As of monday i will have 2 more weeks of hard training, then 1 week of light training leading up to the fight, then i go and kick ass.
im out, have a good weekend all
05-24-2005, 08:34 PM
Ah what a good weekend, i feel much better today after chilling and partying all weekend. Didint gain any weight even though i wasent really watching what i ate.
05-25-2005, 02:36 AM
I may be fighting for the ICAF lightheavyweight championship title.. sweet!
05-25-2005, 10:33 AM
Kick ass, hope that pans out for you. You'll have to weigh in under 205 for that, right? Are you liking the 7-OH?Originally Posted by Kristopher
05-26-2005, 02:33 AM
Yeah i will have to be at 205.
7OH is working nicely, i am noticing that i am way more sore than normal, one of the side effects. I also am way less stressed, and less catabolic.. appetite reduced. this **** is the ****.
2 weeks until i fight.. The real training starts next week
06-04-2005, 01:22 AM
I fight in 9 days, next week i will only be doing light pad work and running
no more sparring or any intense cardio.. i feel like i have peaked.. my timing is good
my instincts are on, im ready to fight!
Weighing in around 209-210 every morning depending on what i ate the night before..
i moved out of the gym so my diet has been a little touch and go the last few days.
i look good, except for all the loose skin around my stomach.. but i cant do much about that
still keeping on the 7OH and cissus
06-04-2005, 09:26 PM
Good deal, your weight's on target, should be cake to drop 5 lbs. of water for weigh-in. Sounds like you've got a good PMA too, time to relax and recup for the next week. Will there be video of the fight? Pics? It would be cool to have those to post up, as it seems we're getting quite a little MMA thing going on here at AM.
06-05-2005, 05:59 PM
Yeah i will see if my teammates can get pics during the fight, there will be an official dvd coming out after the fights i think
Some news, turns out i have to weigh in the same day i fight, that sucks ass.
regardless, i will just carb deplete and cut water if i have too, i really hope that this does not affect my ability to fight.
1 last session of sparring today with some former fighters, going to go 6 5 minute rounds just for fun. Then on monday and wednesday i run, and tuesday i do padwork and bagwork.
Cant wait for this to be over with so i can take a break and start lifting again.
06-07-2005, 02:04 AM
Ok i forgot to aspirate and when i pulled the needle out blood started pouring out of the hole, and then i rememberd that i forgot to aspirate, and thought i was about to die.. holy **** i was scared.
Went for a run today and did some yoga, probably same thing tommorow
using a different scale now so not sure what my weight is, but i will measure myself tommorow
06-08-2005, 10:06 PM
I leave tommorow, i fight saturday night.. wish me luck
06-09-2005, 10:32 AM
Man, sucks that you have to weigh in the same day. Hopefully you'll have enough time to get rehydrated/carb up after you weigh in. Good luck, kick some ass!
