Haven't updated this thing in a long time.
I got injured and haven't trained hard for over 7 months which I went from a somewhat lean 221 pounds to looking fat and gross and a lot weaker =(
(I had been at my strongest right before I was injured - which tend to coincide haha I can list any weights I used for anyone who cares)
This is def the fattest I have ever been
Had an injured shoulder and some forearm/elbow problems so coulda done cardio and legs but opted to eat like shit and do nothing but play poker. Worked out well in the fact I did well and ended up buying a new house, but now its time to get back in shape. I thought of doing some before/after photos (as some of u know I once did a couple fitness model gigs lol and just looked at those pictures and compared them to now).
So today starts new diet and a workout program, not really excited to start, which is funny since I played sports and worked out all my life. Hard to get back into it now that I'm older and everything hurts haha. Doing more circuit style training combined with boxing shit for now until I can increase my strength and cardio. Diet is still pretty non-strict to ease into it and I still have a very fast metabolism (I was eating 4kish calories a day for a long time).
If anyone wants to talk diet or working out I am always down for that. Or wants to know some of the workouts in detail. I saw a few blog posts re: 300 workouts and that shit. Those workouts definitely will work if ur goal is to get into really good shape and be visually appealing. They don't work so well for an already muscular guy to get bigger.
AS for poker, I have been playing a ton (outside of moving) for the last 7 months as mentioned and done well, which is always good. I play on euro sites so hopefully nothing happens to them in the future. I haven't been coaching much in the 7 months. I had a few students but now with the PS/FTP thing with US players I have lots of room if anyone is interested in lessons. I changed my prices awhile back as I started doing lower stake lessons as well. so 100nl+ is $113 and under 50nl is $75 for anyone interested. I had to cash off most of my online BR to help pay for the house so went back to 1/2 but did real well right away which was nice and was up to 5/10 and 10/20 again. Dropped about 12k to start this month but back in the green now (after dropping 10/20 hehe). 10/20 is like my arch nemesis, yet I have a pretty good lifetime 5knl wr.
I'm not going to UFC this weekend, which is a surprise but having just bought a house it was tough to drop $1100 on a seat (I had a coupel lined up that were obv sick seats and a decent deal at that price sadly) so just gonna have people over to watch it. I think GSP will win and hope he really lets go standing so we can all be reminded of his sick kicks combined with his new boxing talents. I've seen SHields fight a few times and he didn't really look as good as his skills would indicate imo but he obv has super talent and its scary to think he could keep getting better if he puts it all together. Pierson is fighting and I went to uni with him. He was a Canadian champ wrestler and super tough so look for him and Ellenberger to have a beauty fight and I would think he has value at +180.
and yes....I still love Lesnar =)
GL to all!!! and hope u Americans have things sorted out for u soon so u can get back to playing
Coaching, UFC and future storytime

First off I have some more free time coming up so I will be able to do more lessons for those who desire to do so.
My rates for individual sweating lessons are:
video analysis (leakfinder style where u make a video with no audio and give it to me and I add audio, etc) is
$105 for 100nl
$158 for anything over 100nl
- the weird numbers are because of government tax. What started off as giving a couple lessons has spiraled rather quickly and I claim the lessons as my business and pay tax on them. So if you pay tax then u can claim the lessons. For those that don't no worries I just call it a consulting business so has nothing to do with poker.
I will also do more coaching packages involving 10 lessons and daily HH review for hands outside session times which is a bit more money. I would only advise it for students who can stick to a more strict schedule and really eager and dedicated to learn and improve.It requires more commitment and time.
- I am a big UFC fan and should post more in those threads. I have seen or followed online everyone since UFC 1. The first few we sat around a buddy illegal cable box watching them then would make his couch cushions into an octagon and all fight each other. I was the smallest but never tired back then haha. Nazgul has recently turned me onto K1 which I always ignored since I heard the American rumours that everything Japanese was shady and fixed. If u never seen Manhoef fight u need to youtube this guy! Back to UFC, I bet on them all the time so anyone that wants to talk UFC let me know. I also bet sports everyday haha.
ALso I am now starting the winter bulk up and want to get to 220-230 pounds with ultimate goal a lean 205 by early next year (first 3 months).Thus, wish me luck =)
I have 3in mind for the next one and anyone who wants to vote can do so if they enjoy my stories. Here are the potential story titles
1)Assblow ( a long story that takes many amusing twists)
2) A few short stories (a few of the shorter ones)
3) Beastiality? (name says it all)
I will write it next time I come home from bar piss drunk
