I'm Awake at 4am. What the F%$#!


#1

Seriously, what the hell.

Some random thoughts by me.

I'm watching the History Channel right now. Just started. I really hope it's not all infomercials. That would make me really sad.

I started training martial arts full time two weeks ago. I do BJJ 16 hours a week, 5 hours of Muay Thai, 5 hours of weight lifting, 2 hours of foam rolling and stretching, and 2 sessions of speed/mobility drills a week.

I started training like this the last week of the Velocity Diet, which was incredibly successful for me. I've never been in shape, never played high school or college sports, or really anything. I was incredibly overweight in high school (6'3, 225 lbs. Two months ago I was at 195 and 19% body fat.) I want to be a professional MMA fighter within the next two years.

I just quit my job to pursue this training regimen. I worked for a company that sells kitchen knives directly to customers in their homes. I've been doing it for three years, and I know I can comfortably make 30k a year doing this job without a college degree.

But I love martial arts. And I love lifting heavy stuff. So here I am.

Since I started training I've developed a problem sleeping. Two reasons. One, I'm so sore half the time that I can't settle down in any sort of comfortable position. Two, I'm just so excited to get up the next day and lift and work on my martial arts skills, that I can't sleep. I love seeing my body change. I love seeing the change in what I do on the mat, and I love slowly beating people in jiu jitsu and muay thai.

Seriously, I wish Z-12 wasn't backordered. I need some. Bad.

So now that I'm done with the Velocity Diet, I'm starting Westside for Skinny Bastards. Talk about some intense workouts. I plan on following it for 8 weeks, and then I think I"m going to try either Wendler's 5/3/1 or Waterbury's Huge in a Hurry.

By the way, it is just infomercials on the History Channel. Cry.

I met a girl two weeks ago. She's 29. I'm 21. Now, I'm not exactly the most talented womanizer, so I've only had two girlfriends ever, and they were both in high school. I didn't lose my virginity until my freshman year of college. Up until two weeks ago, I had had sex three times, with three different girls, and I was drunk all three times. They were all very unimpressive events.

Now this girl I met, the last two Saturdays we've been at it like rabbits. The first night we went at it for probably close to six hours. This last Saturday we did it for about 4 hours. I didn't ejaculate either time.

Basically what I'm trying to get at is that as of right now, I've found sex to be on the whole..... unbelievably bland and unimpressive. I mean, I can genuinely say that most times I jack off I get more satisfaction than the sex I've had.

Is there something horribly wrong with me? Or is it just that I've never boned a girl I actually had strong feelings for?

Something is wrong with your dick

Your writing style makes me smile. Weird…
Just get better at sex. You masturbated way more than you had actual sex. You might just be extremly overexcited.


#4

haha “overexcited” usually has the other problem.

you said you are sore all the time, are you taking to many pain killers? I was on Tylenol 3 once and it was hopeless, i could pound like a jackhammer and never finish. The girls love it though :wink:


#5

Sense.

This thread makes none.

Begone with thee!


#6

Doing just about anything for six hours will get boring.

So awake again at 3 am.

Just watched the movie Defiance. Fuck yes for true heroism. I’m going to have to read the book that movie is based on.

Did my first official lower body day of WS4SB. Fuck it was tiring.

Then BJJ. Fuck man, 2 hours of working on guillotine chokes, arm locks, and rear naked chokes. I hurt, a lot. Thank god for spike tablets. I don’t really know how I’d make it through the day without at least one.

I leave tomorrow to go work the South Dakota State Fair. It’s in fucking Huron, SD. That’s basically the shitpile in the center of Butt Fuck Egypt. It’s 8 hours from Minneapolis, in the middle of nowhere. 11,000 people surrounded by rocks and farms. Kill me now. I’m a member at lifetime, gold’s, and 24 hour fitness, and not one of those three chains has a gym within 100 miles of Huron. Seriously, wtf.

Gay.

dude, get a different job.

I can guatrantee when you have to do 8-10 hrs a day starting at 7-8am, and go to gym, cook, etc… YOU WILL BE TIRED AND ABLE TO SLEEP.

seriously. your whining about lack of History Channel entertainment, and you dick’s insensitivity to vaginal walls… these complaints are all GAYER THAN A FANNYPACK OF RAINBOWS.

A fannypack of rainbows… interesting.

OP, why so many gym memberships? Seems excessive.

Sleep has always been a problem for me. I’m an insomniac. You’re not. You are just getting too excited. You have to learn to shut your brain off at night. Quit obsessing over the next day. Don’t watch TV before bed. I’ve read and been told that reading a boring book helps. Meditation could help as well. I would say medication works, too, but I don’t recommend it in your case. You are just doing a bit too much physically and mentally. And if anything else, leave the stimulants alone. Those will help keep you awake as well, depending upon when you are taking them.
Try splitting your training up, now that you have so much time on your hands.

As for your sex issues, you’re probably, like I said before, overtraining. Ease off that pedal a bit, learn to relax, quit getting so damn excited, and maybe you’ll begin to enjoy sex a bit more.

Not if you are doing it right
