Fitness; Exercise 

@timmymac How is the program working for you? Sounds like it may be a good combo for bjj, I'm curious now.

Morning fasted

2023 Chicago BJJ Championships are happening this Saturday. I have one GI opponent and another no-gi in my rank/age/weight bracket.

Now, note to self: don't get injured in practice like last time!


Clocked in at 189lbs this morning so just need to maintain for 2 wks.

Intermittent fasting and morning cardio daily for the next 2 weeks - I need to loose 3 lbs before my competition March 4th to make the 190lbs weight class.

Felt good today after a short break because of a cold and a slight shoulder injury (I need to get better at tapping early in when rolling).

Early afternoon fasted run on a treadmill. And now it's time to break the fast and eat some goodies.

Some treadmilling and mobility work this morning. I still have a little cold so keeping it light.

And I'm on a sick break. I figured it was coming - both of my kids are just getting over it and that's when it usually hits me. It's interesting though that my wife seems to doge it every time - I guess she has a stronger immune system.

Tom boosted

I've been feeling really good about my fitness lately. 💪 Lost all my pandemic chub, and I've been getting stronger.


@DaveW It was hard for me to try to do both: lift weights to gain muscle and strength and at the same time loose fat. The problem is you need to eat quite a lot when lifting heavy to have energy, recover, and build mass. I decided to focus just on fat loss and stopped lifting. I don't believe that's recommended in general, but allowed me to be in a calorie deficit for several months and not worry about muscle mass. I dropped to 12% body fat, now eat more and restarted lifting to rebuild strength
