Post Training Rundown: Conditioning Decrease


Today's training session was sponsored by: Self Discipline

I've noticed my cardio is slipping.

This past week I was some what stressed out from work, but I did a lot of walking during my lunch breaks and stretching. Also since I was super heavy into weight training that I began to skip post training stretching and started to stiffen up. That is not good for judo, jujitsu and striking in general. I need to balance out my flexibility with my strength training.

I've been skipping stretching after weight training, because I was tired and hungry. I was very concerned about eating food, getting more protein and experimenting with BCAAs.

Is it a lame excuse to skip flexibility? Yes!

So this week, I'm going to increase my cardio and take my stretching/flexibility more seriously.

Post Training Rundown: Running In The Heat Again!

Today's training session was sponsored by: Self Discipline

This was a great inspiration to keep moving forward.

This week has been dragging on and on and I just couldn't make it work.
So... With that being said, I'm proud of myself and I see this as a personal victory. It may not seem like much, but considering the context of me eating TERRIBLE and feeling TERRIBLE... Yes Sir, I made it!

Some times you shouldn't be too hard on yourself . Unnecessary strictness can result in demoralization and regression. Remember to live life and enjoy yourself!

Post Training Rundown: Running In The Heat


Running in the heat 88F is not the best way to break a 2 week hiatus!

Though I argue it was necessary to finally make something happen, I do admit that I went a bit extreme.

So why pull a Martin Lawrence?

In the past two weeks I've been starting up a few ambitious projects (SoldierComplex.com and AdrianDavis.net) that are super time consuming and tedious. I've been staying up until 1 - 2 am in the morning and waking up at 6:30am.

So my workouts have been suffering in both quality and intensity. This has been very frustrating, especially since the first aspect of my work out regime that started to fail was the motivation to wake up early to run. Sleeping 4 - 5 hours a day is not a good recipe for success in any endeavor, it is a recipe for FAILURE!

How did you fix this?

I've finally got some SLEEP! The night before I made sure to eat well, wash dishes, brush my teeth and go to bed early! 9:45pm!

The result?

I woke up at the butt crack of dawn and contemplated my existence.
I felt well rested and energetic. I call that a SUCCESS!

Master Alma Qualli's Last Kata Class at The Philadelphia Judo Club

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017 Master Alma Qualli stepped down as Head Kata instructor at the Philadelphia Judo Club.

Alma's presences will be missed and her technical instruction can never be replaced. She has traveled the world learning from famous and legendary such as Keiko Fukuda and many Olympic Judo champions. Her passion for Judo has lead to 27 years at the Philadelphia Judo Club.

I am deeply regretful that I could not have spent enough time under her instruction. Each and every interaction with her has elevated my depth and understanding of Judo. Almas technical knowledge and since of humor is legendary.

I make it a point to always bring my best technique when I am under the watchful eye of Alma. She expects the best from us and it is well understood.

Congratulations on your new life, career and relationship!

Thank you Master Alma!

The Future of Soldier Complex

It's been a long time since I've posted something to this blog. For all intents and purposes this blog has been dead for 5 years!

I will not apologize for that, I've made great progress in my career, as a man and as a martial artist! It has been the best time of my life and today I am reaching a new mile stone in my life.

My skills and abilities have come full circle and I now have the power to complete my goal of starting my own ecommerce website!

Initially at the end of 2011 I wanted to start own company, but I lacked the know how to complete the website. Though I've failed in developing a working website at the time, I've gained the skills to garner the attention of high paying employers. (This helped dig my fiance and I out of poverty while she started prerequisite classes to get into Pharmacy School!)

What does this mean?

It means that I'm turning my favorite blog into my life! Soldier Complex will be taken to the next level with photos and videos!
