FY 300

So, I wasn’t on the internet much in Cali but really a lot went on that I could talk about… Maybe later. I finished up the class with a 95%. I did just enough drinking and spent lots of money. I met some cool people, saw old friends and got some good training. I got about 6 certificates for public speaking, Professional selling skills etc… My Combat Fitness Test score out there was a 281. 270-300 is first class. I grappled a MCMAP black belt and got tapped twice and a broken blood vessel in my eye from not tapping on a choke that I got out of. I gave him a good fight for quite a while though and he was hurting the next day. I have noticed a lot of changes in myself from the school . Mainly in that I am more comfortable approaching strangers and holding a conversation or finding out a specific thing and just my body language and approachability.

I’m glad to be home though. In my inbox before I left I had an email from a Marine Captain moving here. A black belt instructor that did Crossfit but didn’t like the elitist mentality. It would have been awesome to work out with him if I wasn’t moving so I let him know the best deal on base and what I was doing.

The last thing I wanted to talk about on here is the “300 workout”. I checked out the website when I got back to see what was going on and saw the post Sara made. It inspired me to try 300 again. This workout is like that mountain that intimidates me. There isn’t much that I won’t do but I’ve been putting that off and keep telling myself I’m not ready. You may have seen my older video which is now Members only from my garbage attempt two years ago. I just tried it again and was a little better until I crashed. I was about 20 into Floor Wipers when my face started going numb… I literally couldn’t move my lip or cheek and my eye was twitching. I decided to stop there and not kill myself. I named the video FY 300. Mark Twight made an actual workout called FY 300 that consists of 5:00 for calories burned or death on an Airdyne bike. His reason for the FY was different for mine though because he was sick of people taking advantage of his work and making a joke of it. Rectuiters school did a “Spartan 300” workout also that was a 3 mile run with pushups, squats, and leg lifts or something like that. I remember thinking the same thing during that. It was a joke compared to the real thing. Here is my newest attempt. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_krH7txwqo

I decided that the numbness was either due to too drinking last night during UFC, not being acclimatized to Virginia, or maybe both. I guess I’ll try this one again later. It’s still hanging over my head.

Beach Vacation

Back from OBX. Videos and Pictures will be posted later. To sum it up… Jet skiing, drinking, Sailing, working out, drinking, boogie boarding to death (almost literally), drinking, hot tubing, playing pool, eating fresh seafood and having a good time in the sun. There was some rain but nothing some drinking and a hot tub can’t fix. Now time to put the drinks away and get back into a good rhythm. Here are some workouts we did manage to fit into all of the play. Some bike riding and swimming most everyday and these… (I may have forgotten some but it was something like this)

Here is a video we got. Turn the volume up and make it full screen if you’re ready to party. Vacation Video

New Video/ Some Leave

Jess and I just returned from visiting Sara and Seth and the rest of the family on our new mountain property. We did plenty of shooting, working on the new land, hiked a some trails, some boxing and turkey hunting. It was a great time. For the next week we will be in a rented beach house in OBX hanging out. Below is a new video that I made from a bigger workout session.

It was something like 2 rounds of heavy Sled pull, hill sprints with 25#, broad jumps, Swiss ball bench press, russian twists with 44#KB, feet to hands (on bar. 1st clip in video), Floor Wipers, Planks to fast hands (you’ll see it in the video), and probably some more that I forgot about.
