Although we been on lockdown in quarantine, i still maintain the goal to be successful with MMA fighting. Or gym is closed– no MMA pr BJJ training… No seeing other people! I have been cheating and seeing one other person.
It wasn’t a big deal at first because we didn’t realize the magnitude of this virus thing. So we always train together and we were aware of precautions in the virus but we still would get together. This person is my strength and conditioning coach. We work out in his backyard, he has all the equipment.
He usually trains the UFC fighters at the gym, but since the gym is closed down he cannot train and neither can anyone else. But I’ve been fortunate enough that before this turned into as big of a deal as it is.. Or at least before we realize how big of a deal it is, we’ve always been training together so we felt like it was safe for us to just keep our line there and keep training. I will have you know that we are both very concerned about the virus because he has a 90 year old father who lives with him.
Although he never fought, as an MMA enthusiast, he knows a lot. But he knows even more about neuromuscular, strength and conditioning, Kinesiology and biology etc etc.
So I think that that’s the only reason why I’ve been sane, through all this.
Being able to take my pups into the desert and Hike, having more free time to meditate, and getting my ass kicked by his workouts, has really been what has kept me feeling good and hopeful through all of this strange time.
I’m going to share with you some pics and videos of training. And I’m hoping that when things get back to normal, I don’t have to fight as an amateur anymore, hopefully I will get it my first pro MMA fight.
