Why I Got Started
I got myself motivated by watching MMA on television. I've always had great strength, so I figured it was time to test myself to see what my body could handle. Within the first few weeks of training I saw results.
How I Did It
I got the phonebook and searched for any local MMA place to sign up. Sure enough, I found one and I was there the following week. Then I hit the weights. I was unsure how to start but Bodybuilding.com and the information on their site and forums guided my training.
After I warm up, I'll do
bench press. Normaly I'll start off doing 240 pounds as many times as I can. Then I'll lower the weight by 20 pounds. It kills my chest! Then I'll do some
decline bench presses doing the same thing. I'll start with a lot of weight and decrease it for all the other sets. With my triceps I'll do 3 sets of
rope pulldowns normally at 110. Then I'll gradually decrease.
My only workout is grappling all my freinds at thier house and having tornaments. I'ts a great workout if you make it far. Also, I'll end up doing at least 200
pushups before bed.
All I do on Sunday is get ready for school and plan out my workouts for that week.
Suggestions For Others
If I had to give anyone advice all I'd say was to find motivation somewhere. Everyone can motivate theselves with something but you have to take action.
Set realistic monthly goals for yourself and, as the months go by and you're reaching your goals, you'll strive for harder ones until you've realized how far you've gotten and how great you feel. It's a life-changing experience seeing your body change.
