    Rodja's PAL Sponsored Transformation


    First I would like to thank the PAL team for selecting me to have a sponsored log of Incarnate and Leviathan. Now, as many of you know, I train MMA, so physique is not on my highest list of priorities, performance is, but I am always trying ot improve my LBM:BF ratio.

    I started yesterday with the training and had weights and conditioning drills, but first the pictures.

    I am definitely a skinny-fat guy, but I am doing my best to get rid of my little tire. It is frustrating as hell, to because my waist is slightly less than 31" and I wear size 29 in pants/shorts (assuming there is enough thigh/ass room).

    Danke, AB. Your new pics are looking great as well.

    Todays lifts
    Rack Deads - 405x5 (just felt like doing them)
    Walking DB Lunges - 50x8x4
    Glute/Ham Raises - BWx8x3
    DB Holds - 90x30 sec, 100x28 sec

    Strength was pretty solid and I could have gone higher on the DL, but I did not have a belt and didn't want to risk injury. I weighed 181 on Monday, but today I weighed 178 today.

    Conditioning:
    5, 3 minutes rounds
    30 sec of Burpees/Jump Rope
    30 sec Jumping Jacks
    30 sec Mountain Climbers
    90 seconds of shadow Thai Boxing

    I felt great during these. I had a little exhaustion and ab fatigue, but my recovery between rounds was awesome. It is still too early to say if it is the BA helping or if my cardio is just getting better, but I can feel something good happening.

    Bad News:

    I may have sprained my knee yesterday at BJJ. I was rolling and I took the back position and got my hooks in and flattened him out to go for a choke, but when I did, I had my right foot in a position where I basically heel-hooked myself. So, now I am waiting to see if I just need to take a few days off from cardio or if it is something much worse. I can walk on the knee w/o pain, but squatting and lateral movements are VERY painful.

    I added a brace to my knee to help with the joint stability so I could lift.

    Dips - BWx15, 12, 12
    Campered Curls - 105x6+3+2
    Incline DB Extensions - 30x10, 8, 8
    BB Rows - 225x12x3
    Side Laterals - 30x15, 40x12x2 (PR)
    Hammer Curls - 50x6+4+3 (PR)

    Great pump and recovery today, especially in my biceps and delts. My focus and intensity were a little off today because I woke up 3 hours earlier than normal. Overall, this was a good WO, but I am going to put more focus on back work starting next week. I am going to skip conditioning today and BJJ tomorrow to give my knee some time, but, hopefully, I will be ready to go on Monday.

    I had an awesome day of training. I set 3 PR's and my conditioning was fantastic.

    Dips-BW+45x6, BW+55x6(PR)
    BB Rows-275x8+7(PR)
    Incline DB-75x4, 80x3
    Pull-Ups-BW+10x5+1(PR)
    Bent Over Rear Delt Flys-30x15, 35x12x2

    DC Stretches for Chest and Back. I have begun to incorporate some DC principles into my weight training, mainly rest-pause, to try to increase strength.

    Condititioning

    3, 5 minutes rounds
    30 sec Jump Rope
    30 sec Burpess
    30 sec Jumping Jacks
    30 sec Split Jumps
    30 sec of double-leg takedowns
    30 sec of sprawls
    60 sec of shadow Thai Boxing

    My HR got into the 160's, but I did not feel winded and I felt as though I got stronger as I progressed. My knee is feeling fine and I am going back to practice tomorrow along with some Guerrilla sprints in the afternoon.

    Good God, my chest is ridiculously sore today. I really hope I don't end in side-mount today during BJJ because I don't think that I am going to be able to escape.


    Also, I have my next fight confirmed, finally, on November 10 in San Antonio at the AT&T center, which is where the Spurs play. So I am slightly over 10 weeks out from this event and then I start prepping for the tournament in Conroe.

    Rodja,

    Are you in Houston? (EDIT: I see San Marcos) I was down in Houston 2 yrs ago to watch my wifes cousin fight at the Verizon Wireless Center. It was a TX MMA event. That night Tito Ortiz was there.

    I think I could have taken him...

    I already feel as though the BA is starting to help out, especially in the later rounds during my conditioning and sprints. I am really excited to see my result as the BA continues to build-up in my system.

    I had BJJ yesterday and I did not get winded at all during my matches, got my ass kicked by a brown belt, but I didn't get tired. I did sprints yesterday and I changed up my format. Instead of 90 seconds rest I had only 30 and I wanted to see how many I could. Well at 11 MPH on a 5% grade, I was able to do 8 and I probably could have done more, but I was starting to get some discomfort in my knee. I will say that it was a very long 8 minutes...

    30 seconds. I am trying to increase my lactic acid threshold to help me push past those moments so when I need a little more power, I can bring it.

    Major Development!!!


    Today was just like any other day except I got a call from my BJJ instructor (who has all of the connections in the Southwest) at about 1 PM. We were just BSing around and then he started to ask about weight, my injuries, and my conditioning. I was a little confused as to what was up and then he asked me if I wanted to fight in 2 weeks. The competitor in me accepted the offer (plus I could REALLY use some extra cash) to fight on September 15 in Louisiana. So I have a little over 2 weeks to realy focus on cardio and strength. I am going to lift this week and next, but I am not going to the week leading up to the fight. I am still negotiating numbers as far as purse is concerned, but I will amke more this fight than I did last time.

    Todays lifts

    Cleans-185x6
    DB Holds-90x30 sec, 100x20 sec

    Sprints (8 intervals)
    30 sec @ 11 MPH on 5% grade
    30 sec @ 4 MPH on 5% grade

    These were much tougher today, but I think it was because I wasn't as rested and I didn't quite eat enough.
