Hows Your Reflexes?

Hey Guys,

As I was taking the shrink wrap off a can of WD-40, I accidentally pressed down on the trigger. I heard the sound of the spray then I saw the cloud coming at my face. To avoid danger, in a split second, I tilted my head to the left and the edge of the spray just caught the outside of my glasses. It was aimed straight for my eyes and I was grateful that my reflexes saved me.

As I wiped the tiny spot of solvent from the edge of my frame, it made me think about my reflexes at 48 years old. Then I started thinking about the up-and-coming world champions and how sharp their reflexes must be.

One such world champion is Marcus Burchett “Buchecha” Almeida. At age 24, Buchecha is ranked number one in the world in his division in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I had the honor of having him lead a seminar at my training center and we developed a work out together that you will love.

There are many components to sharpening your reflexes. While you are doing this workout, every time your feet hit the ground explode up as quick as you can back to a handstand. This will help to improve your fast muscle response.

As I Promised

Hey Guys,

There were nervous contestants everywhere at Radford High School gym in Honolulu, where they held the National American Grappling Association (NAGA) tournament this weekend.

NAGA’s is the biggest and best grappling tournament in Hawaii. This year makes the 12th year that my school, Grappling Unlimited has participated.

As I’m walking around the tournament I run into two of my old school grapplers from 15 years ago. Anthony Torres, who was in the Ultimate Fighter show and Abe Rodriguez, a Brown belt in Brazilian jujitsu.

It’s so great to see old-time training partners and buddies still competing in tournaments and training together after so many years.

When training for tournaments and competition you build bonds that last a lifetime. A compatable training partner is crucial when getting “competition ready.”  It’s a good idea to practice and coach each other.

Some of my best racquetball, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts training partners were my own students.

Here’s a brief clip of a guy who has trained with me and made it big time in the UFC. He’s not only a UFC World Champion but also a UFC Hall of Famer.

Last week Monday, I promised you a video of Chuck Liddell.  Here’s his response when asked, “What was it like training with Egan?”

UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell

Hey Guys,

UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell was doing a question and answer session after his seminar at my training center in Honolulu, Hawaii. One of my students raised his hand and asked “What was it like training with Egan?”

It’s been 15 years since Chuck and I trained together at the first UFC training camp in Big Bear. This camp was the beginnings of Mixed Martial Arts camps of its kind that you see all over the world today.

I got a little nervous waiting to hear how Chuck would answer, but I have it on video and will share it with you next week

Today, I have a Chuck Liddell inspired workout. You ready?  Let’s Go!

Can You Believe This?

Hey Guys,

Watch this transformation from a five o’clock shadow to a full beard.

This took 30 minutes to put on, and 10 minutes to take off.

While this beard transformation was happening in front of my eyes, I started thinking about weight gain transformations.

Here’s what I was thinking…

When you graduate from high school when you are 18 years old. Every year after high school, you gain 2 pounds. This means that 20 years later you are 38 years old and have gained a total 40 pounds!

WOW!

That seems pretty crazy, but what’s even crazier is that people come to me and tell me that they want to lose 40 pounds in 3 months.

REALLY?

You took 20 years to gain the weight and you want me to tell you how to get rid of it in 3 months?

Hmmmm…

Everybody wants to be great at something without putting in the blood, sweat and tears.

Well, I’m not a miracle worker, but what I can do for you is break it down so we know what we are dealing with.

Here is my break down for you, step by step…

I would tell you that you need to lose 13 pounds a month.

Which means 3.3 pounds a week.

Which breaks down to ½ a pound per day.

This doesn’t sound so bad and it can be done.

The question is can you keep it off?

This is how I like it to work!

Not just get there but also maintain what you worked so hard to achieve.

It might take 3 months of hard work to get there, but what I’m trying to say is that when you lose weight on a crash diet, make sure that a workout is part of your plan.  Also, remember that the workout doesn’t need to be one hour long.

With the right workout and intensity, 30 minutes is all you need.

BE COMMITTED!

BE PATIENT!

REMEMBER…

A 30-minute workout is only 2% of your day.

Schedule it in and make it happen!

NO EXCUSES!

Aloha,

Egan
