What a difference a couple of weeks can make! In my last blog post, less than two weeks ago, I was very frustrated because I had been sidelined by back pain. This week, on-the-other-hand, has been the best training week that I have had in a wh... Read more

It has been nearly three years since I have posted to this blog. My last blog documented my neck injury. That set my weight and fitness goals back a long ways. I kept training and working in my sports (MMA and Jiu Jitsu) however. If you ... Read more
