Any other addiction apart from GYM?


#1

I’m here not quite long time and I would like to know brothers do you have other hobbies besides the gym? Of course, not everyone loves just gym, I like gym, but I love Judo and BJJ. I started my adventure with Judo when I was 6 and already practice 37 years on the tatami also I’ve started BJJ 12 years ago as well and I’m still love grappling :slight_smile: I came back from training now so what about you guys? do you have any other addictions besides the gym?

My father was a black belt in judo and was the first martial art I ever learnt…I fell in love with kenpo and competed world class for many years. I fought back in my country:

  • Bill super foot Wallace
  • Benny the jet Urquidez
    I learnt kenpo from Ed Parker him self. Here where I live I teach 2 classes a week in a non profit place for the kids in the area. I maintain flexibility and train it most of days
    Awesome post

if i had the time i would like to train mma. the explosiveness from training fast twitch muscles would have a good carry over to powerlifting. been doing a meadows program the last few weeks and i feel like when i get back to a strength block i will be feeling better than ever. a lot of exercises he tells you to focus on pushing as hard as you can and exploding. or having a 3 sec eccentric then exploding up. switching up training styles can be a hobby in itself since you have to learn to adapt

I have some hardware saying how great I was on a particular day ,when the really good competitors didnt decide to show up that day! I guess today I could call myself a martial artist,LOL, I begged my Momma(RIP) to put me into wrestling thinking it was WWF, So from 8 through college they wouldnt let me leave! Thank God for those mentors/coaches. Since I liked WWF , They steared me toward Greco, but eventually it all clicked. Every year I quit…for a day…practices sucked. I came up with this idea that I only need to have 1 or 2 set ups to a unstoppable takedown and a good defense, so why practice all that other stuff! I wish I would of continued and coached or something but I couldnt lose a pound because of bodybuilding.
