I’m a 38 years old and now train a lot at home and improvise in a range of ways to stay fit and healthy. I am a dad & a husband and see these as my primary & secondary roles in life, with training a distant third priority. I’ve discovered a range of ways to keep on top of training however, using bands, DIY punchbags, and bodyweight exercises among other things.

Health & fitness are more of a priority for me now, rather than performance in the cage. However I do still train in MMA & BJJ and use the sports as motivation to improve my fitness. For example, I’ll do circuits full of MMA related movements and motivate myself to do cardio so that I can see the increases in my endurance during sparring and rolling.

I still train with competitor fighters and need the same strict approach to diet, strength & conditioning and psychology. I regularly update the blog as well as the technique directory.
