Newbie (1/14)



  1. I buy mine at my local health food store. Vega is cheaper there than it is anywhere else I've found. My local store has a good selection of other vegan protein supplements as well. Do you have a Whole Foods in Winnepeg? If so, it's expensive, but maybe still not as bad as paying for shipping. You should be able to get Manitoba Harvest Hemp protein pretty easily!
  2. This fight's at my home town UFC--can't wait to see it live and in person! >
  3. Yeah, Muay Thai. It'll be way easier to stay motivated to train, especially if your alternative is to run twice a week. Won't make you big, but it will make you tough. Start rolling those shins! You need to do MT at least twice a week to progress properly. If you're too sore to do 2 days MT and 2 days weights at first, don't worry. Your body will adjust. When you start any martial art from scratch, your body will need to get used to doing stuff it's never done. When I'm not injured (which is not right now ) I try to train 4 days a week at the kickboxing gym and 2 days doing other stuff, like running, bodyweight exercises and some free weights. I'm not trying to get big though. I'm trying to keep my weight where it is.
  4. Cool--we may be heading over for a fight on July 17th.
  5. Thank you Diego Sanchez! Finally, someone beats the crap out of Clay Guida, even when he's laying on top of him doing nothing... would've liked to see him finished, but Guida's a tough dude. I'll give him that--he didn't even look that bad once they wiped all the blood off him. I'm sure his face was black and blue today. Yay Ross! meh, not so yay for Wilks-I prefered DeMarques but he got soundly destroyed. Decent finale though. Looking forward to the coaches' fight!
  6. Cute but also venomous (they produce a toxin from a gland under their elbows which they lick before biting predators; they also cover their babies in the toxin when they leave them to find food) and endangered. They are a CITES-listed animal. They are actually poached for their eyes, which are used in traditional medicines. All the You Tube videos are probably more harmful than good as they only increase demand for pet slow lorises. Sorry to rain on the cute-parade, but I found the video to be rather sad. From one website on slow lorises: "Sadly Lorises are often poached from the wild to be kept as pets. In the wild they are solitary animals and this provides challenges for their care in captivity, especially in refuge centres caring for abandoned pet lorises or orphaned babies. Wandering through any of the big markets in Indonesia, it is not uncommon to find them up for sale with their canine teeth removed. This reduces the effectiveness of the slow loris's bite. It also removes the loris's ability to feed on a balanced diet that includes those fascinating geckos. However, the pet trade is not the major threat to their survival in the wild. As is depressingly typical, the real threat comes from habitat destruction and killing for use in Asian medicines." More Info
  7. Yeah, win or lose, Wanderlei will fight Anderson soon. There's some bad blood there. One thing's for sure, Wand will take the fight to Anderson. Silva vs Silva! I still say Anderson will win tho!
  8. That was a pretty good show. Enjoyed watching Diaz pick apart Scott Smith. I actually felt kind of bad for Smith. Brett Rogers was impressive too. I guess everyone knows about Arlovski's chin now. He looked gutted after that KO. Felt bad for him too. Joe Riggs actually looked awesome against Baroni, had the better stand up and out-wrestled him. Strikeforce announcing is pretty lame though. Looking forward to Carano-Santos! So much hype for that fight, they better go 5 minute rounds!
  9. Some potentially good fights at UFC 99 for sure. I say Franklin over Silva Cain over Kongo Hardy over Davis (although I like them both, it's going to be mixed feelings) Swick over Saunders, quick Can't wait... I'm curious to see what the German fans are like. It'll probably sound like a Bayern Munich game in that place!
  10. Machida's hard to get a hold of and he's got solid BJJ. Greg Jackson probably told him not to go to the ground with Machida. They were hoping to catch Machida with his chin out. Oops.
  11. Machida rocked, but my favourite fight of the night was Frankie Edgar - Sean Sherk. That was impressive. Edgar had the perfect strategy and stuck to it. Sherk forgot he was a wrestler and lost the fight hunting for that one-punch KO. It was pretty awesome watching Machida tear apart Evans too.
  12. It's an unfortunate situation for Faulkner to be so seized up by a mouthpiece. Surely he can have one custom made that won't gag him. I use a cut mouthpiece myself for the same reason. I don't fight competitively anyway and my mouthpiece is still long enough to protect my jaw. I can totally sympathize with Faulkner though. He needs to figure it out! It was kind of an ironic match-up tho, don't you think? One guy can't keep his mouthpiece in, and the other can barely get his mouthpiece in because his teeth are knocked out.
  13. ...slicing a seal open, gutting it, cutting out the heart and eating it. CBC story Another story Yet again, I am ashamed of my country.
  14. Yeah, Monson's a pretty cool fighter. Awesome photo--
