Great performances from @sinfreesophia and @ramandeepdehal at the British Junior Women’s Championships.
U72 lifter Sophia Ellis went 8/9 hitting a very respectable 372.5kg total with one competition PB and two all time PBs. Very impressive performance at her first ever national level competition.
84+ lifter Ramandeep Dehal went 9/9 and totalled a very comfortable 397.5kg with all time PBs on every lift. She placed second and took home a shiny silver trophy to remember her last competition as a junior.
Special thanks to @funwithchemicals for coming along to support, cheering on our lifters, handing out water, lending a helping hand and bringing coffee for coach.
The festive season of meeting and greeting is just around the corner.While most people are still deciding on #whattowear ,I am totally crushing on this comfortable kurti from @craftsvilla_dotcom . What's further awesome is I could wear it like a maxi dress as well and twirl around on a Dandiya night.

#NationalsDiv1 DAY ONE! 🏅⛹🏻♂️ UNSW win their first game by 6 points to @sydneyunibasketball (ft. that ball movement though)! 🔥🏀🔥 That’s one of two games down for today. More to come! 👀 Repost from @arcsportunsw!
Will fight. @kembativz w/Kelly McCann and Michelle Washington.
Fleeting moments of opportunity. One of the benefits to combat sports.
3-round Muay Thai fight. I’m in the black.
Footwork is something I recognized as a weakness in the ring, especially against a significantly taller opponent who’s physical fitness was equal to my own.
In the ring, You cannot wait for your opponent to get tired from fucking hitting you, which is something I commonly hear when teaching Combatives, “I was waiting for him to get tired”. You simply do not want, and in some case can not withstand that many punches from someone trying to knock you out. They hit you, you hit them fucking back, harder.
You also learn it isn’t personal. It’s just a fight. Acknowledge this and you are free of ego. Enabling you to be present. Finally, credibility. Combat sports offer instructors the opportunity to demonstrate their skills; experience duress dysfunction and resultant effect on skill; and opportunities for growth. Too often, instructors claim their techniques would kill someone, therefore they cannot use them. Well, not every technique results in a kill. Get in the ring. Knock the motherfucker out.
About an hour after the fight I was seeing double, this lasted the next 2 1/2 days of training which I completed with one eye closed so as to eliminate the double vision. After several weeks the double vision subsided and my vision was restored to normal. Aside from the early morning, where I still see double. Gotta love the docs at the VA who disagree that I pinched a nerve.
This fight was an opportunity to explore the use of alignment in a fight, I teach how to assess movement ability and structural integrity in part on posture. To my knowledge, no one else does this and in this instance it was a resounding success. But, only if you possess the skill to exploit the advantage.
Will fight. Will you?

This will go down as one of the greatest days of my life...
I became the 2018 @acafa_caasa overall amateur strongman national champion, earned my third @arnoldsports worlds invite and am officially a Pro Strongman with @circuithommesforts. Not only did I accomplish all of that, but I did it beside my amazing girlfriend who also won the middleweight national title for the second year in a row. Couple goals.
Can we talk about Jeff McNeil for a second? @mlb says otherwise. For once over these past two morbid seasons, whenever I see McNeil come to the plate, I'm not scared. Why? Because he's a MACHINE. And he doesn't get anything close to the credit he deserves.
I swear, every time I see him play, he either gets three hits or four hits (and a triple somewhere). The kid (*cough* 26-year-old) can do it all: he can hit for an extreme average, he can make the flashy defensive play, and he can swipe some bags. This is what we need!!! This is what this abysmal team has been missing for years now! A (kinda) young stud who can create some havoc on the base path!!! Although I must say, kudos to Rosario and Conforto for stepping up their game over the past few months: that shouldn't go unnoticed either. But Jeff, as he wields his knobless thunderstick, will be a terror in the batter's box for years to come.
I know I haven't posted in a while, but I see some real good positives with this team. Expect more from this page. -
