Life lessons from high school wrestlingby Myles “Fury” Jury
Presented by LactiGo gel – Getting the competitive edge!

In 2003 during my freshman year of high school, I wanted to try out for the wrestling team. At this time, I was doing some traditional martial arts, like Tae-Kwon-Do and Jiu Jitsu, at a club called “Holly Martial Arts,” but didn’t really have any wrestling training. The whole idea of joining the wrestling team was to get some competition experience, learn some skills and get in crazy good shape. If anyone knows collegiate wrestling, then they know the work ethic and adversity that one goes through is top notch compared to other sports. Continue reading

High Altitude Training — by Dr. Brad Archer
Presented by LactiGo Gel – The competitive edge

High altitude training has long been used to improve endurance. More recently, training masks purported to reproduce this effect at lower altitudes have gained popularity in MMA and other sports as aides to enhance performance. Now, marketing efforts have expanded to include general fitness training promising increased lung capacity and decreased workout time. Sure, you’ll look comic-book scary, but should you strap one of these fashion statements to your head in public? Continue reading

The Evolution of MMA - by Myles “Fury” Jury
Presented by LactiGo gel – Getting the competitive edge!

One of the most fascinating aspects of MMA is the wide range of skills a person must learn in order to be a mixed martial artist. Years ago, the UFC started out as a proving ground to see what martial art reigned supreme. In the early stages, you would have a boxer vs. taekwondo black belt or a hapkido expert vs. a ninjitsu (ninja) master. These were the first steps of the evolution of what we now call “MMA.”

Lets take a look at how we go here… Continue reading

The Power of Patience - by Myles “Fury” Jury
Presented by LactiGo gel – Getting the competitive edge!

In society today, one of the most challenging aspects of a persons daily routine is having patience. In a world filled with daily “instant gratification” and being able to post-pone the pleasure of getting what you want right now, isn’t on the top of the list for most people.

Imagine if you couldn’t use your credit card to buy those shoes you want at the mall earlier or if you had to wait months to save up the money for a down payment on that new car at the dealership. For a lot of people, this feeling of “delayed-gratification” isn’t pleasant and I see why. There is not a more rewarding feeling then getting what you want instantly, being able to get what you want immediately leaves you with a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment which most people enjoy dearly. The trouble with “instant gratification,” it doesn’t leave room for the long term plan of your life. Having patience means having the ability to wait for something without getting angry or upset. Let’s take a look at why having patience can be powerful. Continue reading

Inside the mind of Johnny “Hollywood” Case on FIGHT DAY
Presented by LactiGo Gelby Johnny “Hollywood” Case

There is nothing in the world like the fight business. Fight day is a day that you embrace with open arms, or can be a long day filled with anxiety and fear. It’s a day that separates the mentally weak and the mentally strong, the boys from the men.

I have seen numerous fighters that you can feel their fear, as they stress stepping in the cage with a moment of truth. They fear failure, what people think, getting embarrassed, losing half their money and going back to the bottom of the barrel with a loss. These are fighters I don’t understand and am nothing like.
