Man I gotta make sure I never bet on UFC fights. I still say that some ring rust played a part in that fight, but JDS just looks like a beast right now. His hands are really fast and his take down defense is very good. I don't think he's going to be able to start like that with Overeem however.

Jamie Lewis and I are doing a roundtable discussion today. I can't find any good audio to text software so if anyone has an ideas, let me know. If I can't hit on any, then you'll just have to be patient until we get the whole thing transcribed. Either way, it should be a great discussion. Jamie and I have completely different training methods but similar mental approaches about training.
|Should be interesting!|
I have eaten way too much shit over the last 3 days. I gotta clean everything up starting today. No excuses.
Been pushing sled on Sundays and I can tell ya, it's god damn brutal.
After this yoke phase, I am going to go into a strength and mass phase for a while, then start some meet prep. I will be competing in the 242's. No more 275's for me. I am not giving up my conditioning anymore. I'd rather be in condition and total 1600-something than be out of shape and total 1800+. It just isn't worth it to me. Besides, I think I can still go 1750 or more totally raw at 242 anyway. I just need to get leaner. "Leaner Paul? That doesn't make any sense." Sure it does. All part of the plan.
Modern Warfare 3 is awesome so far. If there are any 360 gamers on here, I'm PLCJ58. Send me a friend request. I'm pretty beast (if my connection isn't 3 bar!) so don't worry. I usually have two other dudes I game with most of the time.
Can't wait for some Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving food. I can eat a mound of dressing and that cranberry sauce. I'm drinking a pumpkin flavored coffee right now, and it's fucking yummo.
Lot of good reports are starting to pour in about the strong-15 program for guys. Lots of guys kicking ass with it, for meets and just to get stronger. I think I am going to tinker with it so that it has an option for a block deadlift phase with speed pulls. But before I do I will actually run it myself. I am positive with all of the block pulls I have done in the past I can work in a programmed block deadlift phase with great results. I will probably do this for my next meet.
I also think I may work in an offseason version of the strong-15 so that you can focus on hypertrophy blocks with it as well. So after a meet, you would run the LRB template, the strong-15 hypertrophy template, then go into meet prep. Before I recommended the big-15 but the strong-15 is getting such strong reviews that I may just focus on perfecting that for a while.
