The Eh Team: Up Close and Personal

Don't I look scary? Grr!

John came into town today to speak at an event, and Geoff met us at Bang Fitness so we could train together. I saw John bust out some pretty impressive lifts, and Geoff spent his time helping another of John’s athletes learn to love his serratus anterior.

That’s Geoff on your left (yes, in a Mario Bros t-shirt), John in the middle and me on the right. Oh, and Geoff’s expert profile went up on the Precision Nutrition site today. Go read it and you will see why I adore the man.

Tonight I spent a bunch of time rolling, plus got a tune up from Mark on my passing. I’m feeling really good about my game – I’m so much stronger and more athletic than I was at the Worlds, and a far more evolved technical grappler. It’ll be nice to fight this weekend – I just hope I get a match. If there is nobody in my division then I’ll fight up a weight class or two… or up an experience class if they’ll let me. I’ll have to be at my most charming with Mark and Felicia….

I start my fast right now and go until 10pm tomorrow night with just water, BCAAs, fish oil and Greens+. In this last cycle, the morning after the fast was where I saw the most precipitous drop in weight. I’m 153 right now, down from a high of 156 due to water retention that could only come from three straight days of eating salt right out of the container. Not that I’d know anything about that. Anyway, I expect to be 149 or so on Thursday morning, which is about where I need to be to weigh in at 152 this weekend.
