I’m smiling today. Why? Because finally I’m once again able to do what I love. Last November I fell extremely ill. I contracted a deadly, antibiotic resistant version of Clostridium difficile which involves a life threatening inflammation of the colon. Within a month I lost over 40 pounds. At one point I could barely even walk up the stairs. I lost the ability to do many of the things I loved. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was one of those things. I tried to attend training but it was a struggle and my body wasn’t allowing it. Many of my teammates even remarked on the toll the sickness had taken on me and how much it affected me but they encouraged me to get better and were extremely understanding and supportive. Now I am in a place where I can train again. I am not 100% better yet but I am in a place where I’m capable of doing what needs to be done. It’s been frustrating as hell but it’s time to forget all that and focus on the task at hand: The World Championships. I don’t have as long as I would like to train and I’m not at full capacity as I stated earlier, but you know me, I always find a way to get shit done and this time will be no different. Training camp officially starts today. It’s time to get some.

Note about the training: Day to day entries will change. Some entires will be workouts I have done that day, some entries will be workouts that people I train did that day. Some entries will be my favorite all time workouts or something I saw on the internet that I thought would be good for you to experience. Remember that because of the changing nature of the entries these workouts are not meant to be prescriptive. For example they aren’t necessarily written down with the intention of you following them precisely. Rather, they are meant to collectively build a resource that you can learn from. Hopefully you can implement some of these ideas and workouts into your own training in order to better your fitness.

Also note that I won’t be posting at the same time every day. If I workout early then it might get posted early. If I workout late then it might get posted late. If I am in  different time zone then hell, I don’t know what time it will show up. Just a head’s up. That said, I will do my best to get them to you in a timely fashion. You have my word on that but remember I don’t have an army of internet monkeys at my beck and call. I am doing this on my own…
