Baroni huh? hmmm… maybe my friends fight your friends HAHAHA…I don’t want to mention names on here hehehe…
Okay, your questions about cycles and doses… The first thing is obviously weight training and steroids do not make you a great athlete or fighter. I almost approach this like I just want to take enough to help recovery and maintain strength while making weight. I’m not a fan of juicing up to get into a higher weight class. Why? Well a natural big guy has big hands and a big head and this can matter when it comes time to trade punches. You make look like a ferrari but when that big lumbering dough boy connects with his fat paws he just may catch you off gaurd. Something to think about.
Okay, I train fighting too so when I give a plan I usually tailor it to the guy. What are his strengths/weaknesses in the ring. What opportunities does he have to defeat his opponent. What opportunities does he have to be defeated? If there is no up coming fight then try to get explosive with your training. CT and Westside and some fight specific exercises will be good for this. At this point I don’t mind gaining weight and you can do whatever cycle you are comfortable with. I like 300mg test/300mg EQ maybe with var.
As the fight approaches it’s time to realize your strengths and weaknesses and establish a plan. Many of these fights are KO’s right away or they go the distance. So you better be able to go the distance. That’s why I like lower doses. I have so much to say and I’m just babbline but one thing you have to do is test yourself. Set up a fight simulation where you tax the energy system involved in the specific fight. Pride is 1 10min round followed by 1 or 2 5min rounds. UFC is 3 5 mins or 5, 5 min rounds for a title… There are a host of conditioning exercises you can use to go 5 min and take 1 min rest to simulate this. It can be bag work, sled dragging, sandbags, tire flips… mix it up. Strong man stuff is good and so is sprinting.
Plyos are good but use them wisely and sparingly… read CT and west side, charlie francis too…apply their ideas to fighting. As far as becoming arnold then kicking peoples asses I just don’t think you should do this. Tito Ortiz is a great fighter…one of the reasons he was so good is he dieted down and came in the ring WAY heavier than many of his opponents. When your bigger, it doesn’t mean you’ll win, but it does help. I call this stuffing the weight class. Say you’re 215, you wanna fight at 199… trust me… it lets you make more mistakes and when you get tagged by some guy who walks around at 240 but weighed in at 220 you’ll know the difference from the guy who bulked up to make the 199 in the light heavy… Does this make sense?
Creed… I haven’t got my hands on methyl cause i’m happy with what I’ve been using.
quick example of prefight.
50mg each of masteron/test/eq shot 3 times/week. 20mg var/day
last 1-2 weeks 15mg halo/day
I’ve found halo does make people aggressive. Suspension is good maybe the day of the fight but test this first. Some like it. some don’t. NEVER do something new the day of an event. I don’t care if it’s 200mg caffiene, or a new submission hold you want to have tested it out.
You MUST simulate the fight day, even the car ride to the place and time everything right. If you mess up, you don’t look bad to judges, you get punched in the face, which sucks.
But remember there is not cookie cutter program… what makes the athlete FIGHT BEST. Ask yourself this before you train, eat, use drugs, whatever. Will this make me a better fighter?
Make sure you get some bread and butter fight techniques and strategies. Randy Couture is very basic to watch. But he wins. Watch as many fights as possible.
what did the winner and loser do? Disconnect emotion. turn the sound off so you can’t hear the announcers and just watch the fighters.
Vitor can be a great fighter but I see inconsistencies with his performances which makes me think he has training inconsitencies or maybe even some emotional inconsistencies. Randy is very consistent. If both guys come in at their potential best I really like vitor’s hands. However, I see Randy knowing his enemy and being able to beat him. Tough call though… I have to find out from some friends how each has been doing in training and then I can say… I’m psyched for hughs/penn too…
