Maybe you should do old school work outs (; like: squats push ups pull ups bridges leg raises These should definitely give you a great base to work with and maybe for cardio you could do light jump rope drills or better yet biking!! I wish you the...

    I think the best thing to do in your situation is to stick to one place. Even if you are better than the rest. If you are surpassing people thats no reason to leave. Thats the best time to get close to everyone and learn what they know and help them learn what you know. If you stay you learn how...

It works just as good to replenish your body. I know farmers use it after working in the fields all day and im sure you can imagine how hard of...

    What i do now is lay in guard and go through it in my head but it only does so much. That or just before i go to bed i think of possible moves i would use to get out of an arm bar or some kind of hold. I love the stuffed animal idea but i have none or else i probably would do that! XD Thanks for...
