Re: Fight gone bad (on own)

I guess what I meant to say is this is what is holding me back time/performance wise, what I write and say in my head I guess made sense to me, given the description in the previous paragraphs... my bad!

And you could have just let that thought slide and move on instead.

Re: Fight gone bad (on own)

I'm a little confused is it really that hard to remember 5 numbers and then jot them down on your break?

Actually YES, if you are working as hard as you can it is very hard.
search for the video of Glassman giving the explanation of how FGB was created for UFC fighter BJ Penn, he describes how Penn was so winded/cyanotic that Glassman could call his name and wave his hand in front of him and he would not even respond... You ever try the workout?

Yeah a few times a while back, well the burpee version. I don't remember it being particularly hard to remember reps. I will not do it again however.
