  1. Rodja's Hyperdrol x-2/Pre-fight log


    I didn't want to announce this until it was official, but I am fighting at the Lonestar Beatdown in College Station, TX on April 27th. I am also going to be logging my experience with Hyperdrol X2 c/o Macedaddy and the AX team. My training is going to be increased over the next month to 6x/wk with two-a-days sprinkled throughout the week. Here is by new breakdown-
    Mon- Stand-Up/cardio
    Tue- Chest/Back, BJJ
    Wed- Cardio, wrestling
    Thur- Legs, BJJ
    Fri- Stand-Up, arms/delts
    Sat - BJJ
    Sun -OFF

    I am fighting at a WW level and my weight as of today is 179 so I have 9 lbs to cut, which is not too much.

    Measurements -
    Arms - 15 1/4"
    Chest - 44"
    Waist - 31"
    Thighs - 26"

    Tomorrow starts the beginning of my adventure...

    I am not really a longhorn, per se, but I do pull for them in football and basketball. I am taking an adventure into Aggieland for only professional reasons. Fortunately, I do have some friends that live in CS, so I don't have to rent a hotel or worry about any of that BS.

    My plan for this fight is to rely on my submissions, but I am still going to throw some bombs in there.

  11. Subscribed, an Kick some ass Rodja!

  12. How many fights have you had, and do you have 24 hours between weigh in and the fight (BIG Difference on the weight cutting)

  13. Following this homie.

  14. Interested in HX2 and Fighting. This should be good.

    Weigh-in is the night before and this is my first pro fight. I am going to try to get to ~175 and then cut the water.

    That's cool bro! Nothing like a good submission fighter that can go for an arm bar and then transition into a kimura or something else!

    And you kinda look like Wanderlei Silva so you must be a fan of some nasty knees! He's a bad bad man!

    My favorite submission combo is either the omoplata into a triangle or the omoplata into a toe hold.

  18. Good If you got a day, cut all you want, have fun and keep that cardio up!

  19. What do you think of Fedor and Cro cop? I think its funny that Cro Cop left Pride so to go to UFC. Its so great watching Fedor take down guys 3 to 5 times his size!

    Crocop left for the UFC for one simple reason: $$. He was offered more money to fight for the UFC and he took it. Word is that he wants to finish his contract in 2 years to maybe fight Fedor at Shockwave 2008.

    I heard it was b/c he wanted to be a heavyweight Champion but hell why not get more money at the same time! If he does fight Fedor again, who knows what will happen in the ring.

    Is your fight going to be broadcast or will you be able to upload it on here sometime?

    I plan to upload it to youtube or a similar sight. If I can get a video, then I will post a link.

  23. Naturally, my package was delivered while I was at BJJ, so I will start my dosing tomorrow. I have decided to switch my Arms/delts to Tuesday and Chest/Back to Friday.

    My workout today was

    Hammer Strength Shoulder Press (rep range was from bottom of jaw to slightly above head) superset with Side Laterals - 2 plates x10/25x12, 2 plates x 9/25x12

    Giant Set (2 sets)
    Campered Bar Curl - 95x8
    Lying Extensions - 95x8
    Close Grip Cable Curls -110x8
    Pushdowns - 120x12

    Hammer Curls superset w/ Facepulls - 40x8/50x12, 40x8/60x12
    Rear Delt Machine - 120x10, 120x10

    I had 8 matches in an hour at BJJ with me submitting 6 and tapping 2 times. I was focusing on my conditioning and I felt good. Looking forward to dosing my HX2 tomorrow (it's only a day away).

    Subscribed! Looks like the making of a great log. I'm very interested in you fight as well.

    Workin

  25. Lookin good in here. You posting before pics? JW.

    That is the plan for tomorrow.

  27. Today was my first day to use the HX2, so it is too early to say what effect it is having, but my training is going very smoothly. Today was Legs and BJJ; I focused mainly on technique in BJJ for certain situations during my fight. My leg routine was;

    Superset (3 sets)
    Unilateral LP - 2 plates x 10
    Unilateral Lying Leg Curl - 50x12

    Barbell Lunges - 105x10 per leg; 3 sets
    Ballistic Step-Ups - 95x6 per leg; 3 sets
    Core - Hyperextentions, Trunk rotations, weighted crunches

    I do lower volume on legs and focus on explosive strength for several reasons: 1. my legs grow if I do heavy weights, 2. hip flexor strength is a HUGE priority for me, and 3. I don't want to overtrain my lower back w/ heavy squats and/or SLDL's

    Looks like a great start!

    Workin

  29. Today was my stand-up and chest/back day. My endurance was pretty good this morning despite the humidity and I and really focusing on my footwork leading into the fight. My lifts today were -

    Superset (3 sets)
    Incline BP - 185x6
    Bent-Over Rows - 205x12

    Hammer Strength Press - 2 plates x8, 7
    V-Handle Cable Rows - 150x10, 10

    Superset (2 sets)
    Pulldowns - 150x10
    Dip Machine - 270x12

    Hyperextensions - 3 sets of 15

    I am hoping that the HX2 helps me with a recomp. I would like to stay around the same weight, but increase my strength as well. I had a good pump today and I am excited about what happens once the HX2 really builds up in my system.

  30. good start!
