Today we sparred Kickboxing and MMA. It was lots of fun, my favorite. The UFC Countdown show was there to film Shane Carwin for his upcoming fight with Brock Lesnar on November 21. Now tonight we will be up in Greeley at UNC working our Wrestling.
The new NateMarquardt.com is finally finished. It will still be updated daily with pictures and periodic videos and will in turn update my Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace. Please leave a comment if you have trouble viewing any of the content.
This morning we trained at Grudge Training Center and sparred three rounds of Boxing and three rounds of Kickboxing. It's 4 o'clock and I just got done looking at cars. I looked at two 71 Chevelles. Both were SS and one had a 502ci crate motor. That would be nice but this one was out of my price range. Now I am headed to a BBQ at Eliot Marshall's house to celebrate his recent victory.
Today was a slow day at practice. There were only 6 guys training. Tonight I will do my strength and conditioning and maybe watch a movie with my wife. I just got my Screen Actors Guild card so movies should be free from now on. Sweet!!
I just had lunch with my wife at a Vietnamese restaraunt in Denver. Pho (pronounced f-uh) is a broth soup dish with rice noodles, spices, herbs and meat. I get "tai" or rare beef. It's excellent with the housin sauce, lime juice, and shiracha hot sauce. If you don't like soup, get the bun (pronounced b-own). I love food!
One of the worst things about being a fighter is when you have to sit out practice. Yesterday, I pulled my back a little and it tightened up. Luckily I have no fight scheduled. I sat out last night and today, but I should be good to go by tomorrow (with the help of my best friend, ibuprofen).
Today I trained with my coach, Trevor Wittman and teammates Brendan Schaub and Shane Carwin. Later today I will call Jonathan Chaimberg and get my off season workout for tonight. I may go look at muscle cars too. I want one!
One of my instructors at High Altitude Martial Arts, Anthony, got me hooked on hot sauce. I always liked it, but now I have to buy anything I see that looks good. This is a picture of the sauce I kept after throwing away several while cleaning out the refrigerator.
I just had my meals delivered this week. All the meals are healthy,
fresh and have the correct amount of carbs, protein, and veggies. It
makes it much easier to rest after training when I don't have to
prepare the meal.
