So tomorrow’s the day. I’m not particularly anxious, which I guess is a good sign.
As I’m writing those lines, I’m having my last meal before the fight. Today’s choice is Dr. John’s (delicious) chili, as it’s pretty low-carb and the hot spices will most likely help me shed another pound or so. In case you never had Dr. John’s Chili, check out http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/berardi85.htm#10, go to the kitchen and start cooking. As a matter of fact, this is a staple in my nutrition. Since I’m cooking it quite often, I’m not sticking too strictly to the receipe. For example, a great modification is to use scarlet runner beans (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phaseolus_coccineus) instead of or in addition to the kidney beans proposed by Dr. Berardi.
Anyhow, let’s not turn this into a nutrition article. I’m having serious doubts as to wheter I’ll make -71kg. Guess not. Not a big thing, though, I’ll just fight in the -75kg category, that’s what I’m used to anyway.
Today’s session was pretty much what I’ve described in my post „Thoughts on Coaching Tools: Shadow Sparring, #2„, with the exception that I went for 3-minute rounds. After that, I spent some time in the sauna for active regeneration (and water loss, obviously).
I’ved attached a video of the shadow-sparring. Enjoy!
Of course I’ll post the results tomorrow when I come home.
