I'm new here. I have been reading the posts in MMA and felt there were some honest guys here. Mainly three guys tanner, alexander and I forget the others name, black guy punching in avator. I trained in Jiu-Jitsu and some boxing from 97'-01' then went off to school out of town and stopped. I went back to jiu-jitsu in 05'. We have been affiliated with Saulo Riberio since 00'. I recently received my purple from him. I'm older now and my style is naturally more to use more strength when we train rather than being overly technical. I wish I was more technically because the technique used right is more impressive. And I have been pulling half guard a lot to become technical at this position and I do see improvements and feeling enlightenment from time to time.
I dont trust the guys in the supplment forum they all seem like vendors promoting a product. Recently I have been thinking about getting into supplements. Not to get huge even though I want to do a test booster. But more for stamina. My diest is pretty much in check. Although I dont seem to be able to get the amount of protein they say I need for a pound of body weight. I weight 215 not huge but find it hard to eat 215 grams of protein a day.
Have any recomendations for brands of protein drinks? Ever tried any test boosters?
Silva is the man was pulling for hendo though, though i missed it I read the results here. Read an interview in gracie mag of silva and he has stand-up character. Hendo is pretty good himself.
Have any recomendations on and BJJ instructional DVD I have Saulo's revolution 1 set but that is what I learn where I train I would like to bring some new stuff to my game and pull a fast one on my brothers. Oh well not sure if you are into BJJ as much as MMA just thought I'd ask.
