Re: Black Belt Jiu Jitsu Practitioners

John Frankl is a black belt under Roberto Maia and uses CrossFit. He is a bona fide monster on the mat too.

Re: UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi

It's perfectly fine, and I mistyped anyway. It's Carlos>Rolls>Rolles.

Re: UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi

Rolles is the son of Rolls, who is under the Carlson lineage. The direct Robson lineage is most known as MMA fighters (Ryan, Renzo, and Ralph).

Re: MMA in NYC

If you're looking to fight, or generally get into MMA, I'd suggest building a base aptitude (Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai) and then rounding out your game from there. Training in all tends to produce...

Re: Worries about Starting Strength

My observations from having done (and am still doing) SS:

1. Forget about body composition. Keep an eye on the numbers. Lifting heavier stuff = stronger. Worry about stronger.

2. If you're doing...

Re: Newbie Diet Question

To be honest, you should probably start with Cordain's book (http://www.amazon.com/Paleo-Diet-Weight-Healthy-Designed/dp/0471267554/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1248927682&sr=8-1) (WFS). I haven't read it...

Re: supplements

I don't work in the industry anymore. I realize that I didn't state that I was offering my opinion on supplements (and NOX) from personal experience and not toting evidence-based advice. I should...

Re: supplements

I think you misunderstood me. I've worked at a vitamin shop and had access to a WIDE variety of supplements. I've tried many, including a number I "shouldn't have" (DHEA anyone?).

In response to my...

Re: Old grinder

Wow, you're a strong guy. A 500 lb DL is nothing to sneer at. However, you should probably post your work outs in the Workout Log section. Here's a link (WFS, obviously): Work out logs...

Re: supplements

OK, I'll take the bait (all links wfs), and for the record, I used to work as a clerk in a vitamin shop.

Protein supplements: Waste of money. If you must drink a post workout supplement, drink milk...

Re: Starting Strength

Bingo. Aside from the gymnastics, I noticed that I'm pretty comfortable doing WODs as RX'ed after my 6 month SS phase. I'm going to extend for another month or so to add another 10 or 15 kilos to my...

Re: How much is to much training (BJJ + CF)?

Drink a bunch before you go to work, a bunch after and then carry a thermos? Sorry man, I've got nothing for you on that one. "A" for effort?

Re: SS vs. WOD

Yeah, I heard the same and believed it for entirely too long of a time. I believe that it's nearly impossible to hurt yourself doing deadlifts while following strict form. The weight will just lay...

Re: How much is to much training (BJJ + CF)?

Or drink a full GOMAD. That's another 1000 calories or so. In regard to sleeping, I empathize. Oh god, do I empathize. My solution is to eat at my desk and use my lunch break to nap in my car. It's...

Re: How much is to much training (BJJ + CF)?

I am by not means and expert, but I've read enough of Rippetoe to relay some"common suggestions", which are:

1. Sleep: Sleep more. You may need as many as 10 hours a night.
2. Food: Are you drinking...

Re: How much is to much training (BJJ + CF)?

I've done/do both. Make sure to get your sleep and eat enough and you should be fine. The ultimate advice, and this is a catch-all for nearly everything, is to listen to your body. If you feel run...

Re: MMA and street fights??

Bingo. I know a few BJJ guys that are also bouncers and have used chokes standing. My friend pulled off a standing Darce last week (admittedly, the guy was wearing a leather jacket). I think...

Re: BJJ Content: Conbrinha and Crossfit

Yeah, he is definitely a monster. I loved how he shut people down at the Pan Ams by spider guarding gi jackets. That was freaking brilliant.

Re: UFC fighters getting plastic surgery....

Nick Diaz got something similar. At least, he got scar tissue removed to alleviate his tendency to bleed during fights. The cadaver tissue isn't so weird. It's been done for gingival grafts, and I'm...

Re: Female Fighters Making Weight

This doesn't answer your question per se, but it's worth considering. Most of my female friends that compete don't do so within their weight bracket. They usually have to move up to fill out a...

Re: Have you ever heard a comment so stupid..

I think what Bruce is trying to say, and correct me if I'm wrong, is that everyone has to draw a line in the sand. He draws his with bacon. I can respect that.
