    Worked on one armed push ups using the ladder (1,2,3,1,2,3 etc) and greasing the groove methods.

    working on pull ups using various grips (chins, hammer grip, thumbless grip) while using a deck of cards to determine my number of reps and work towards finishing before the end of the day.

    “Courageous, untroubled, mocking and violent-that is what Wisdom wants us to be. Wisdom is a woman, and loves only a warrior.”



    Woke up pissed ,motivated, whatever. I feel it again. It came back like a long lost love and grips me like a drug addiction. I know I know, you wont let me go gently into that dark night.



    The time has come. You know it in your soul, for I am your soul... You cannot escape me. You are puny, you are small, you are nothing--a hollow shell, a rusty trap that cannot hold me. Smoldering, I burn you--burning you, I flare, hot and bright and fierce and beautiful. You cannot stop me, not with wine or vows or the weight of age--you cannot stop me, but still you try. Still you run. You try to drown me out... But your voice is weak.



    Alright, I kick the dust of self pity, doubt and age off my soul. I ask myself how deep my passion for war goes. The tingling in my fingertips gives me the answer I seek. Deeper than bone.


    -Tornado training on treadmill (**** poor performance after punching bag.Only 1.27 miles at a moderate pace,yuck. Just wasn't the day for it I suppose)

    -One arm dumbbell cleans at 70-75lbs 3x3 ( did 5 reps of 70 lbs on the first set and finished the last 2 sets with 3 reps at 75lbs)

    -Punching the bag ( The power is impressive but the fluidity and overall body movement needs much more improvement)

    -Burpees using a 20lb vest and a deck of cards ( crapped out despite lots of sleep and mucho caffeine. I must have left it all in the lifts and the punching. Will have to change things up and keep it short and sweet since fights are not marathons. Good lesson to take from today)

    -Jump rope using the H.I.I.T method (canceled)




    I'm not alone and if your reading this and it clutches you like it does me, then you know, we are not alone and we walk the path warriors of years and eras gone by treaded. This caught my attention and makes me that much more brave and reckless yet, closer to the peace I seek within thyself.

    Reading The Dark Knight Returns had woken up something or someone inside me. It had woken up my own Dark Knight, I suppose, the part of me that yearned to take on the universe, walk on the wild side, live dangerously, leap knowing full well the net would never appear, that its not appearing was precisely the point. Suddenly I craved to become a specialist in the Leap of Faith, to plummet headlong into my unknown destiny at twice the speed of death, to be a regular predator feasting for the duration of my short mammalian existence on fate’s tissues

    So I awake achy, unmotivated and with a lack of energy. It's a rather dreary day and quite frankly staying in bed is not something that many would find fault in. That's the problem, thinking like the other 97% of people and you remain in the very same spot you swore to rise from.


    So I'll rise, work on my technique after jump roping, and give thanks for being in such a weakened state. It is only in times like this that the true passion,the true person emerges. After all, a diamond without intense pressure and heat is merely coal.

    Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me. —The Sith Code

    Indeed. That is what i copied and pasted off their website bit that is actually the bare minimum requirement. It has been stated that to be competitive, you must push for a much lower time.:good
