Florida tomorrow… err… today!

I’m going to Florida tomorrow for a weekend of BG East video tapings, and some of my own as well. I still need to pack my suitcase, I can’t ever seem to get the damn thing packed any sooner than the night before. I have no problem getting the equipment together, but unless the flight is 10 hours away or less, the suitcase is an impossibility.

I’ll have some free time over the weekend to film one or two more custom match requests. I’m not 100% sure about the available roster, but these are the confirmed wrestlers that I have available:

Rolf Fulton


Kayden Keller

Kelly King


Drake Marcos


Lane Hartley will also be around.

There will be some others, but I’m not sure of their interest filming custom matches.

Because I’m going to be away frequently in June, I’m going to release the bulk of all the Club Firestorm content right away on the first. Usually it would be spread over some time, but I don’t want to get caught up during the tapings, and not have time to update.

I spent some of Memorial Day with Cameron. I consider him to be one of my closest friends, and whenever we’re together it’s a good time. Here we are trying to decide who gets to roll first in Monopoly.

Well, that about does it for now. I’ve got a suitcase to pack!

My diet & workout program, free clip added

I’m only writing this lengthy intro, so people can’t read the post through the email preview. Well, that should just about do it. Now it’s time for the good stuff.

Before I get into my diet & workout program, I wanted to let you know that a free video clip of me vs. Skip Vance & Christian Taylor has been added. This is a preview clip showing one of next month’s exclusive match options. To this day, it might be one of my favorite matches I’ve ever done. There was something so fun about torturing those two.

I’m frequently asked what type of diet and workout program I do. Well, I’m going to give you a rough outline now. It would be kind of neat if any of you tried it out for a month or two and let me know how it works out for you.

The diet is fairly simple. I watch my calorie and carb intake. As long as I stay on, or under my numbers for the day, it doesn’t matter what I eat. Although, I personally like to eat high protein, low fat, and carb type of foods. The numbers I’m going by right now are 1640 calories, and 100 carbohydrates per day. I can’t recommend a starting point for any of you because those numbers were tailor made for me, and based on my height/weight/age/body fat. When I really want to cut up, I subtract 50 calories and 10 carbs per week for 6 weeks and then gradually cycle back up to my starting numbers. If I don’t like the way my progression is going, I’ll hold at the current numbers, or go back to the prior weeks numbers until I can maintain the look I want. The biggest pain in the neck is the meal prep, and reading the food labels for everything. I’ve found I can stay well fed, hunger isn’t really an issue ever. Will power is a whole different story. lol. I try to consume 1-2 grams of protein per pound of my body weight.

My typical diet each day is some variation of this

Breakfast: 4 egg whites, coffee with 1 scoop of protein and almond milk mixed in, toast with peanut butter

Lunch: 8 oz of grilled chicken with carrots and broccoli, greek yogurt

Dinner: Tilapia, steak, or a burger, broccoli, salad.

Snacks between meals: Almonds, nuts, greek yogurt, rice cakes, sugar free jello cups, protein shakes, apples, bananas.

On workout days I toss some chopped up banana pieces on my toast & pb. I have a shake post workout.

Right now I’m in the middle of changing my work out routine, so I’m posting the one I just finished up doing because I know that worked for me. I’m seeing results now from my new one, but would rather wait until I know the end result before recommending it to people.

Each day starts off with a heavy lift. Go as heavy as you can to get the desired number of repetitions for each set. After that each lift is 3 sets of 10 repetitions. I’m not counting any warmup sets, or stretching you should do prior to lifting. I rest 2 minutes between sets of the first heavy lift, and 1 minute between sets of the sets of 10. It might seem like a lot, if you’re in a hurry, or feel like it’s too much, bump it down to a minute for all. It’s only a 3 day a week workout program, each gym session should only take 45 minutes. So it’s not very time consuming.

Monday: Barbell squat: 6 sets of 3 reps. Glute hamstring raise or Romanian deadlift (depending on available gym equipment): 3 sets of 10. Bent-over barbell row: 3 sets of 10. Weighted dips: 3 sets of 10.

Wednesday: Bench press: 6 sets of 3 reps. Front squat: 3 sets of 10. Pull ups: 3 sets of 10 (add weight if need be). Barbell curl: 3 sets of 10.

Friday: Deadlift: 6 sets of 3 reps. Overhead barbell press: 3 sets of 10. Close-grip bench press: 3 sets of 10. Hanging leg (or knee) raise: 3 sets of 10.

Speaking of Club Firestorm, I’ve been updating it with photo galleries for the past week. I’m about to throw another one up today that features stills from the FREE streaming video for this month, Jonny vs. Brad Barnes! I’m also getting ready to upload more Free Video Clips. I have more stuff in the work for Club Firestorm members, so if you’re not a member yet, check it out. If you are, stay tuned! I’m glad to get such positive feedback about the site, and especially about the Exclusive Custom Combat DVD. It’s very satisfying for me to know people enjoy the work I’m doing.

I haven’t really been feeling it in the gym lately. I haven’t really felt normal. I don’t feel sick, I just don’t feel right for some reason. So I bumped my training down to 3 days last week and didn’t do anything super strenuous. My diet also took a hit (surprise, surprise). Eating differently really didn’t seem to make me feel much better, other than having much more energy because of my increased carb intake. I’ve felt alright the past two days though, so I’ll see if I can hit the ground running on Monday.

I saw Age of Ultron two times. The first time, I left feeling kind of disappointed. I saw it again a couple days later, and thought it was much better. I think I had my expectations set so high that I was going to be let down no matter what. My one ongoing complaint about most of the Marvel movies is the villains. None of them seem really bad ass. They do have their moments against the good guys, but they always get beat with ease in the end (a dance off beats Ronan). The battle of NY in the First Avengers, Captain America vs. the Winter Soldier, and the final fight in the first Iron Man movie are the only real exceptions I can think of. In Age of Ultron, it seemed like every Avenger had their turn beating Ultron individually. Sure, they would fight a little first, but he didn’t seem like a threat until he had his entire army of robots behind him. I also don’t like how they have every movie announced for the next 5 years (and all the super heroes that will be in them) or whatever it is. When you  know the movie titles and the actors that have been announced, you know for a fact nothing bad can happen to any of the main characters during the movie. So I found myself not being as invested in any of the fights during the movie as I should’ve been. Also, does every movie need a big fight in the sky with the fate of the world hanging in the balance? Why couldn’t it be under the sea, against sharks with frickin laser beams attached to their heads? Anyways…

My favorite bar had a charity auction the other night. I was happy to walk away with a couple things I bid on, the coolest items being an Autographed Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman photo. I also got to meet Malcolm Butler, he didn’t seem like he was in the best mood, so I didn’t want to hound him for a picture. But I’m slowly but surely meeting some key members of this past years Super Bowl team by accident. Gronk on a flight back from NY, big Vince Wilfork coming back from FL and now Butler. If I can cross off Edelman, McCourty, and of course Tom Brady, I’ll be happy. Speaking of Tom Brady, I hope somebody can piledrive Roger Goodell for him.
