RE: Anyone ever feel like giving up?
A long time ago i made the decision to stop serious bodybuilding,although i never competed i had everything calculated like food,training times,rest everything - as you say it takes over your life.
Same thing with my fight training, i have 3 nights ckm and then another 2-3 mma training - i have no desire to enter any mma comps so i am just happy to learn as much of it as i can because i like doing it - i also enjoy just wee things like in house comps and rolls,keeps me ticking over.
Was speaking to another guy last night who is a very talented mma fighter and i asked why he wasnt doing any of the recent comps and he said he wouldnt do one unless he dedicated at least 6 days a week to the training!! Thats alot of time and effort- in the end up he still trains mma 2-3 times a week but enjoys all the other joys of life like spending time with family and friends and of course getting pissed! lol :)
