    Reee heee heelllly.... </ace ventura> I'll check on that.

    I'm of course interested in seminars and workshops, however a shift in work schedule would allow a BJJ class with more frequency. That seems like the real long term win for me.

    I am late to the party too, started BJJ at 39. That plus mileage from the job and my body has been taking a beating. Plenty of minor injuries, nothing major yet. Big key is good training partners and tapping early. There are no medals in the gym. Good luck and enjoy the pain!

    Beyond a shadow of a doubt. Grappling is so deep and broad a subject with so many variables that it just simple takes time to get decently proficient at it, so regular training is the key. I will indulge myself in a bit of ego stroking though to say that I can probably jump start someone and get them far more forward in their training than they will get in a weekly setting. I may be fooling myself, but I have had a pretty good amount of feedback the past 15 years to let me think that.

    Waaaay out west.
    Day two in the books. Did a beginners kickboxing class. Super fun and quite a workout! I could really feel soreness in my glutes and hamstrings, doms was kicking in pretty good today. Iíve been doing lots of stretching and drinking a ton of water and the soreness is fine and manageable. The soreness went away during the workout but is back again pretty good now.

    I bought a small canister of antibacterial wipes to wipe down my gear after the workouts and the mesh bag should allow the gear to dry much faster. Will take the rest of the week to heal up and hit it hard again next week.

    The wildest thing is how the soreness falls away when you start moving around.

    I could walk into the academy smoked from doing deadlifts in the morning but if I get a chance to shoot for a double leg you'd best believe I'm gonna go for it.

    The stretching is good and the antibacterial wipes is an AWESOME idea.

    If you don't wrap your hands while wearing the big 16oz gloves I recommend it as well. Not just for protecting your joints (although they do that too) but you can throw hand wraps in the wash and it means less sweat in your gloves so hopefully you don't need to throw them in the garbage or burn them two years down the road (ask me how I know lol)

    If you're a heavy sweater, you might want to consider taking some thermotabs before you start training. About 500mg of sodium (three tablets) can make a huge difference in endurance for heavy sweaters.

    Thatís a good idea. I wrapped my hands as Iím very concerned about damaging my hands/wrists and negatively affecting my shooting. The wraps were very damp when I took them off. The Everlast gloves I bought have a mesh material over the palm of the glove which is supposed to help them dry faster. Iím also using a mesh bag to aid in drying. I donít want to be the guy with the stinky gear.
