Brock Lesnar vs Alistair Overeem

After the long overdue signing of one of the world’s top heavyweights, Alistair Overeem, the UFC provides him with his first test, and a stiff one at that—Brock Lesnar. This is the reason why MMA continues to outshine my favorite sport, boxing, because almost every fight is the next one we want to see.

”You know the escape, you just got tired. What’s the lesson?” ”Don’t get tired.” ”Let the other guy get tired.”
-Chiwetel Ejiofor in Redbelt

By Jonathan Stamey (January 26, 2011)
Posted in School of Boxing

Those who think power punchers are born, not made, are idiots. I am my own example of that. I think my sister used to have more power than me…now I got a right hand that’ll move a tank.

There are plenty of technical pieces to the punching power equation such as: footwork, rotation, weight distribution, the delivery, and even a strength & conditioning component.

But the title says concept, not techniqu… (Read more)

Whey Protein Powder

I’m asked on a continual basis one of the following generic questions: What’s the best thing I can do to lose weight? How can I burn fat? I want to put on a little bit of muscle, how do I do that?
