What are your current goals? What are you doing to achieve them?

Gains, weight loss, explosiveness, be able to run a marathon?


with the new year rolling around people tend to start fresh or start completely...



My goals for the rest of the year and new year. Drop weight, get cardio back up, and improve my MMA techniques.

Since i started fresh 2 weeks ago. Weight is down 5lbs, cardio is coming along, technique is tough to gauge right now. I'm starting to get back into a cycle with lifting and i'm back to putting in no less than 3 days at the MMA school.

Fix some imbalances
Get a lot more flexible
Get my cardio up and respectable
Improve my fight game as much as I can with my training capabilities
Maybe pay a little more attention to arm size for a while

I'm not really concerned with overall strength right now until I get more balanced and limber. I'm only a little weaker than I would usually be, but that's not a big deal. I'm supposed to start rolling with my friend a few times a week soon so hopefully that works out. He can't spar though so I'm stuck on bags and shadowboxing. Still, I can see improvements coming along there.

I'd really like to get back into swimming. Also, been noticing less flexibility lately and want to work on that. Not sure which avenue to take just yet.

It depends on what your goals are, and also on the quality of the particular dojo. A serious dojo will be much better than a McDojo regardless of what the art is.

Judo is basically throws with no striking. There is also ground work and some submissions. Karate is pretty much what you expect depending on the particular style. Kyokushin is the most combat oriented, but they all have similarities. For self defense purposes I personally think judo will give you a leg up on most people you encounter. A full power throw on the street will take most people out real quick.

Personally i'd recommend Judo.

Karate isn't something necessarily bad to learn but the problem, like mentioned above me, is there are entirely too many McDojos when it comes to Karate. Most "Karate" dojos are run by a guy that earned his blackbelt from another McDojo and just because you are a blackbelt doesn't mean you can instruct. You have to find legit instructors.

Judo schools are hard to find so most instructors are the real deal. I also personally think its the better art. Most times some douchebag will grab you and knowing Judo will allow you to lauch the idiot across the room.

My goal for 2009 was just to get back in shape and get to the gym a minimum 3 times a week. I accomplished this and then some.

For now, in 2010 I'd like to try and achieve the following:
Get to 185 lbs. (currently at 175 in a failing "bulk" phase)
8 % body fat by July 1st.
work legs, lower back, and butt more
max bench at 260
get back into hitting the heavy bag, possible boxing lessons?
