Firstly apologies for the delay in coming back, I meant to update sooner but forgot all about it.
Anyways I am at the halfway mark. Noticing an increase in fitness but not as much as I would like and I have not lost too much weight. The reason being that on week three I got a chest contusion, we were doing some light shoulder tap style sparring and one of the guys got a bit ahead of himself, landed a punch on my upper chest and that was me out of action for 5 weeks. I was just about able to do the cardio and some of the S&C stuff but I could not do any grappling, BJJ, shrimping or stands, some pad work was ok. Was damn sore but I made sure I was going in regardless except for a few occasions when I was away with work or back home.
Anyways today was first day doing grappling/sparring and as luck would have it I crashed my chest down on one guys knee, thankfully not as bad as the first time but I couldn't continue this morn. Il be back tomorrow and I have no other commitments between now and the fight in Sep so no excuses not to go in every day.
Need to sort out the diet too!
Lastly, can anyone recommend a good pair of MMA shorts but with one caveat, there can't be a drawstring, I can very sensitive scar tissue on my tale bone and a drawstring aggravates it when I am on my back as it digs in. Can one get velcro shorts without a string?
Hope to be a bit more frequent with the updates too...not long lef!!
