What can I say. I feel amazing. My faith is unyielding for sure…. No joke on that module. Every situation seems like a “test”. And I have defaulted to believing only the things I want, over and over and over and over without fail. I can see how faith plays a huge role in fighting sports:
In moments of deep fatigue or pain, the mind asks you “do I give up?” And you truly have to believe you’re fine and you’re going to win. Any flinch in faith can and will manifest in the fight and what comes after. This is why the best and undefeated fighters all have a close faith to god. Almost like he’s attentively watching our movie , giving us infinite attention to detail and masterfully guiding us through. But the highest of highs has said your wish is his command so just enjoy it.
I love fighting, my shadowboxing rounds in the gym really allow me to feel the deep tiredness from my conditioning.
It’s always unpleasant
I am fighting off, even at a very chill and flow like pace consisting of punches, and kicks, at the very least, boredom. Boredom due to fatigue and having to focus so hard on the shadowboxing
During these 45 minute to one hour sessions, I really dive deep into how I’d do things in a fight, under the same stressful simulations, fatigue and mental strain.
Yet, I know this and that’s why I go so hard for these rounds, really taking my feet around the floors and creating angles, pivoting, using great boxing and great kicks, what I have as a secret weapon is my spinning back kicks, they’re deadly, and I can throw them when super tired, meaning that if I catch small openings mid body (that Muay thai fighters do all the time, and mma fighters too) I can definitely surprise people.
What’s really special about me is that I have both stances, I do them both masterfully, having a clear balance for my target infront of me between my legs as to always kick easily, I can throw in a quick spinning back kick to the body later rounds as their guard starts to have holes.
My hands are godlike, I could honesty become a pro boxer too. My flow is absolutely out of this world, my knees and kicks come outta nowhere and with insane speed.
With my 8 hour a week conditioning session. I do mobility work, and I’ve opened up my hips and strengthened my hip flexors insanely, while also fixing my shoulder health with shoulder mobility routines and long periods of time in the gym rolling my back on a foam roller (30 minutes before I do anything)
And finally, my bag rounds come at the end, they’re great because coming after the fatigue of so much shadow boxing, my body is really tired, and this is when I want to be throwing hard shots as to stay dangerous.
I’m able to really generate tons of power, through masterful technique, great speed, and killer intent.
I really really get those power hits out… I almost feel like I WANT to break myself
Since I talk such big game, can I keep hitting hard when I’m tired? If I believe so, then I have to consistently do it. I am a winner because I’ve seen most pros, just chilling and being fighters, I combat the downward pull of getting famous quickly by actually loving training, loving the true training, it’s ability to let me see god, it’s ability to strengthen me, it’s ability to give me the thing I do desire, to love what I am, a fighter. Today the idea of “training so hard that the fight is the easiest thing” made sense.
I love being paid to knock people out.
