I am living in Rio De Janeiro, Zona Norte for the next 5+ months. Today my body fat was tested at 18.7% I weigh 162 pounds and I am 5´7´´. I hope to train atleast 20 hours/week M-F. I will will use a 5x5 program with concentration on compound lifts: squat/dead/bench/military. My goals, well, to make the most out of this opportunity. I am practicing jits with the best in the world, and that will be my priority, followed by striking and weight lifting. If I feel comfortable enough with my skills, when I return home I would like to translate my gi skills into nogi, and then take an amateur fight. My jits professors are Fabiano Freitas, Andre Pedemeiras, Rony, and Marcelino. My muay thai professors are Rodrigo Ruas and my boxing coach is Geovani. 03/06 is my first day. 1.5 hours with Marcelino, than 2 hours with Pedmeiras later in the day. I will try and include many pictures while keeping this log updated as much as I can. Thanks for looking, feel free to ask any questions however I may or may not answer them.
