Default Max1973 "Rite of Passage" Training Log

Hello all. This will be where I will be writing my new adventure. I will be in prep for a upcoming full contact Mma & Fma fight. This log will show my Journey to prepare for this up coming event. I am in no rush, and I have plenty of time to prepare. As you will see from this Log I don't train like a normal body builder or standard MMA. I choose to blend the two, because I find my body respondes well to both Stimulus. So first I should probably go into a little bio of myself before I go any futher.

I am 36 years old and have been weight training and fighting for awhile now. I served 2 tours overseas kicking open doors in Iraq and Asscrackistan in a Army Mp unit. Ive Taught,Trained and participated in Mma for the cage and street application, Knife combatitives, Extreme Close Quaters Knife ,/FMA to Military, Law enforcement and Private. Close quaters team and single tactics. Full Contact FMA stick fighting no pads no bullshit and I am going to stop right there for this and continue with something else.

Currently in school for my History degree and move towards that PHD and I am currently dating one of the most wonderful women, I think, On the planet.

That sure is A LOT of volume. It can be done but it is also very easy to overtrain if your diet is not in place.

Hit it hard, eat your food, and don't forget the pictures of your 23 year old hot girlfriend! (JK...)

Have you officially had a fight yet?

interested in this.

i had thought about getting into BJJ, MT, or MMA, but then i realized im a huge pussy. so now i just watch UFC and lift, lol.

good luck with the fight.


quick question- why not go more with a strength approach? as many guys here will say, while going for strength, muscle will come along. also it seems more beneficial to MMA.

just wondering. not trying to be a little dick.

@ Grip N Rip – I include a warm up set before I use work weight. I just add in the set numbers altogether

@ Bend The Bar – Always Brother! You must hit it hard to see anything. Be lazy gets you nowhere and nowhere fast! I have had 3 official fights and 2 non official, for Official I have 2 wins and 1 horrible loss and for the non’s I have 1 win and 1 draw. My game lies in my ground and pound skills and the ability to keep my opponent I fight down on their back or on their side, while hammering them. The loss I took that was horrible was due to a terrible uppercut I took that landed nice and square, I spoke Russian for a week after that hit was so hard lol! And I wont forget the pics! Lmfao

@ Jwood – My current stats for Body fat I’m not sure But I am 5’8 to almost 5’9, I weight in a about 190lbs and do you also mean Bench Weight, Squat weight and Deadlift stats as well? If so highest Bench I have reached is 280lbs, Squats in the 300’s and Dead lift solid 300’s but tried for a 400 and stop cause I was scared…Fear of shooting my back out scares the piss out off me. I rep in the 200+ For Deads, I actually find that get me stronger in that area then just Deading for 1-3 rep max and my back does not hate me for it.

@Kman025 – Never think you are a pussy. Ive seen kids that thought that HOLD IT DOWN hard fucken core in Iraq. While guys who talked big shit buckled under pressure and the kids who thought they were pussies were pulling some major balls out of their Asses! Never think you’re a pussy. You want to learn MMA do it man, sooner or later you will get used to being punched in the face and it will be no big deal but as for your question.

My Strength approach comes from the 1 week after the 2 weeks on. If you notice in that everything is heavy. Heavy Deads, Heavy Cleans, Heavy Squats, Heavy Press, It’s just mixed into a circuit work out. Jumping a 6 foot wall six times in a Weight vest will make you stronger then you can even think doing the car push for 2 blocks in a weight vest will make your legs like oaks. So when I head back to my Hypertrophy type stuff I can build on the new numbers and also it gives me a clean break. I don’t like to get bored. I mentioned above in the bio my body stimulates off both types of work out, Standard BB and also Circuit type Strongman shit. After I hit a week of Tire flipping and pushing a Car my squats shoot though the roof and my Presses skyrocket. For MMA type training certain things work for certain people and for my game what I do helps me keep the other guy down while hammering him. Again, I do enjoy body building type work outs as well.

@BB12 – Thank you man, I have a good amount of time to enjoy it and about the High volume and crazy workouts. I have been keeping it rather easy as of late so it’s time to go balls out and stack on some muscle and power.


I would also like to mention these Sets and number are subject to change. Perhaps I will feel I wont need a warm up set and I will drop the sets to 2-3.

I hope I was able to answer everyone’s Questions, I was thinking about cutting out Bicep training and triceps training and just letting the Press, Rows and Pull up do all the talking. Has anyone every tried this and had success? A few fellows I know gave up on Curls for girls and Tricep hammering. Said it got them nowhere. They just allowed Compound movements to train those areas and they have seen great results.
