Obviously you are a perfectionist. Is your goal to get your weight down to a buck even to compete in the strawweight division? :lol:

Hindu Squats help stretch the tendons/ligaments or whatever there called, I used to do them. The style of martial art your club teaches sounds practical for street combat. One of my criticisms of BJJ is that some schools/instructors don't teach enough takedowns. I took BJJ classes for 2 months and we rarely practiced any takedowns including the more advanced students. How is someone supposed to apply BJJ techniques in a street situation if they can't take someone to the ground? :?

This dojo teaches JJJ and BJJ in British Columbia. I don't know of that many schools that teach both styles of JJ. A friend of mine teaches yoga there. http://www.wacademy.net/index.html

I think I said "decrease my overall body fat". To me that means replace fat with muscle and get ripped. I'm not bothered by what the scale says or what weight division that puts me in :smt102

After class I had a massive second wind. The vega must have kicked in or something, so I did 3x2 minute rounds on the heavy bag and 6 overhand pull ups.

It was an awesome workout -- a great way to finish off 2006. :D

Post workout Lunch consisted of: 1 tomato, 1/2 an avocado, 3 giant leaves of kale, 1/4 cup of olives, 1/2 cup of carrots, 1 banana, soy latte.

I'm planning on going for a trail run tomorrow. I'm writing it down here so that If I get lazy and don't go you guys will kick my butt. Okay, now I have to go!

:P I just realized how this sounds!

Get those dirty thought out of your mind, offense 74, it's strictly training! I'm training my stomach and legs to be able to withstand punches and kicks for fighting. I'm all bruised up but I'll heal back tougher. :D
