Jumping rope is an awesome exercise for MMA training. Fantastic for conditioning, co-ordination and footwork it’s definitely a very important part of a fighter’s training routine.

I like to challenge myself when I’m jumping rope by busting out a bunch of different tricks and movements throughout my routines. It also keeps things fun for me.

Here’s one technique I think you should try out in your training…

The One Hand Rope Spin 360

I’m definitely looking forward to UFC 117 although I think these two headliner fights could play out in one of two different ways: Action packed from start to finish or uneventful and boring depending on how the fighters approach it.

I’m hoping that Chael Sonnen wins the belt that night by finishing Anderson Silva. What I definitely don’t want to see is Silva dancing around the cage for twenty minutes waving his arms in the air and doing his shake and bake stuff pretending to want to attack. Hopefully for the fans, he’ll be out in good form and fight hard for the entire fight.

With the Fitch/Alves, ideally we’ll see some good ground work by Fitch and some slick striking by Alves throughout in a match that ends by either KO or submission. Both guys are tough competitors and will without a doubt be ready to fight hard all three rounds.

I’m picking Sonnen and Fitch to win. Who you going with?

Here’s the promo vid for the card…

Got a Joslin’s T-shirt?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

This pic was sent to me by a friend on twitter

Do you have one?

It doesn’t matter how old it is; in fact the older it is the cooler it is. Someone recently came into Joslin’s with a shirt from the 70’s that had my dad’s picture on the front throwing a kick. It was skin tight and so old school!

If you do have one, send me a pic with you wearing it and I’ll throw it up in our new facebook photo album called “The Joslin T-shirt – Sightings Around the World!”.  Also, be sure to include a short description of where the pic was taken.

EA Sports MMA

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Will the upcoming EA Sports MMA video game be better than the UFC’s Undisputed 2010?

Obviously we’ll have to wait and see but I admit that I already like the fact that you don’t have to go nuts on the controller to escape and apply submissions. EA is saying it’s more of a timing thing which could end up being a pretty cool feature.

Watch the video below for some more info on the next mixed martial arts video game to hit the market.
