I found this online. I was studying some of Mikes boxing moves to work on some of my own for MMA and I stumbled across this

Any thoughts on it?

Tyson in the 80's when he was under Kevin Rooney was under a strict exercise regime that he followed working out like an animal!
This was his training regime!
Iron Mike Tyson's Training Regime (in the 1980's)


Up until he fired Kevin Rooney in 1988, his ONLY diet was steak, pasta and fruit juice. How's that for discipline?

Daily Regime (7 days a week):
5am: get up and go for a 3 mile jog
6am: come back home shower and go back to bed (great workout for those huge legs of his)
10am wake up: eat oatmeal
12pm: do ring work (10 rounds of sparring)
2pm: have another meal (steak and pasta with fruit juice drink)
3pm: more ring work and 60 mins on the exercise bike (again working those huge legs for endurance)
5pm: 2000 sit-ups; 500-800 dips; 500 press-ups; 500 shrugs with a 30kg barbell and 10 mins of neck exercises and 100 Pull Ups
7pm: steak and pasta meal again with fruit juice (orange i think it was)
8pm: another 30 minutes on the exercise bike
then watch TV and then go to bed.

(Before jogging in the morning he did a lot of stretching followed by 10 jumps onto boxes and 10 bursts of sprints, then he went jogging. At 12pm he sparred. At 3pm he did focus mitt work or heavy bag work inside the ring. He warmed up for all ring work with light exercises such as skipping or shadow boxing or speed ball. At 5pm Tyson did 10 quick circuits, each circuit consisting of: 200 sit-ups, then 25-40 dips, then 50 press-ups, then 25-40 dips, then 50 shrugs, followed by 10 mins of neck work on the floor. What an animal! Tyson said that the shrugs "built his shoulders up" to help unleash punches with his short arms whilst at the same time building endurance in the neck. It should be noted though that Tyson couldn't do any more than 50 sit-ups a day and 50 press-ups a day when he was 13, but gradually increasing the reps each week got him to a higher level over many years, so that he was doing 2000 sit-ups inside 2 hours every day by the time he was 20.)

Mike told Ian Durke (Sky commentator) his above workout regime when he visited England to watch a Frank Bruno fight in March 1987. Durke told Mike that Bruno trained like a bodybuilder and asked Mike about this, but Mike said that floor exercises and natural exercises work better. Mike explained that his punch-power comes from nothing more than heavy bag work "works your strength through the hips" he said, despite doing shrugs with a barbell he said that lifting weights has about as much resemblance to punching as "cheesecake" (contradicting himself though due to doing shrugs). But his mentor Cus D'Amato realised that, due to Tyson's style, he needed punch-power (not that he didn't have it naturally anyway). So Cus got Mike very heavy bags to hit for a 13 yr old, and Cus gradually increased the weight of the bags Tyson used over time so that by the age of 18-19 Tyson was banging bags that no other man could budge! Also, Cus used to order Tyson to go jog 3 miles with 50lbs on his back because he didn't want Mike growing any taller (because it didn't suit his style)!
He did mostly bodyweight exercises but did use some barbells to do his 500 odd shrugs with lol

I have been sorely tempted by steroids over the years, but ultimately decided to pass.

I saw too many people who followed that path:

a) not spend the substantial $$$ that go with proper medical testing and supervision, and
b) find it hard to be motivated by the lesser results that are the reality of mere mortals-- i.e. they found it hard to train when they weren't juicing, and

For me these two points added up to steroids being contrary to my path of being a warrior for all my days.

Crafty Dog

Wow Crafty. I never thought you would have thought about using them. Can I ask why you thought about using them?

I just checked with my Command and they know about Tren. They said it was good to go but BARLEY. My Sgt. Told me that Tren was so close to the real thing that it might as well be the real thing but he also said that so many soldiers are using it that as long as I provide Doc's with the info and the bottle before a UA they have probably heard about it.

If anyone is thinking of using Tren there is a right way and a wrong way to use it. And I suggest only  buying either the original and the Break away company that made Tren Extreme not the Toyko tren or the knock off trens

@ Ronin.

I understand your Schedule. I myself have just ran into a pretty hectic schedule and I am not finding all the time in the world to do everything I want and because of this my Martial Arts training has suffered. Really all I do now is lift serious and have been cracking out some serious heavy weights, Power Lifting, Strong Man stuff and Hardcore conditioning and all I really have time for anymore in the Martial Arts aspects is Practicing  on a Heavy bag Grabbing it like it was someone and throwing hard Crosses and upper cuts, Practicing on a dummy bag picking it up and slamming it on the ground, Mounting it and throwing hard punches and ground elbows and I get together with a friend and we do something more along the lines of Street grappling to keep the Grappling in check. Picking someone up on the street and slamming them into the pavement  is pretty effective. LOL!

If you are looking for a boost , I have tried the Tribex ( Tribules ) Combo with the Novadex Combo and like I mentioned before. It put me on the map in alot of terms. I am 35 and it helped increase in terms of weight lifting, I would say about 5lbs to everything and in terms of energy, I felt good after 6 hours sleep.

Now because I am lifting more weights an growing, I need more sleep. Anywhere from 8 to 10 hours

I wan also lacking in the Chi department. If you have any questions on anything Supplement related and or how Tribex works give me a private Message. Besides the Current supplement  I am on, I have alot of knowledge in that department.

But like anything.You should always speak to a doctor before you try anything.

From what that says and from what I have been seeing is that it seems I by mistake am taking a Legal over the counter steroid.  This was not my intention when I first got the product. I got the product like anyone who works out/ LIfts weights would get a product. It was from over hearing people/Friends talk about it just like they would creatine, New Protein Shakes and or No explode.

I have tried the Tribex Tribulis (Natural Testosterone Booster) and Novadex (Estrogen Blocker) Combo and it worked for building super lean muscle, Increase Sex Drive and Massive energy but it was pretty normal combo.

Can I get kicked out of the Military for this?

I don't know Crafty. It's legal. It's found in Max Muscle and everyone I work out with has taken it and gets beyond Crazy lasting gains. So I went down to Max Muscle and I bought a bottle of Tren Extreme. They told me how to use it with all my current supplements. I went from 170lbs to 180lbs Solid in 3 Weeks. My old just normal bicep curl was 30lbs each arm and is now 50lbs each arm. I benched pressed 200lbs and now I am at 280lbs plus the bar. Everything I squat, Deadlift, Press and push is almost close to double and my Body looks like a greek god.

I went back down there to ask more info on it and there were cops in there buying the stuff. I asked them their take on the item outside and they said they loved the product.

Now mind you I now eat about 7 to 8 times a day and also eat close to 3500 calories a day, So maybe that also has something to do with it.

I was grappling with someone the other day and the strength gains were unbelievable. It's t the point now where I pick up a weight and in a way get scared, Because it just seems wrong.

Thats why I am here asking if anyone knows anything about this.

No to burst anyones stick grappling love but I would love to see something alittle more realistic then stick grappling. Most people to almost all people I see on todays street are not carrying a stick around and most of the time I look around to test a theroy on there is a stick you can find anywhere, I mostly see nothing.

So far in the Military ( that I have seen) I happen to be the only one that carries a telescopic baton.

How about something that goes down more offen then not. Knife work? Being attacked by a knifer and trying to evade and protect yourself while trying to react by going for you own knife?

Maybe some non dueling aspects of knife attacks, Knife vs gun ( Reacting with a wave folder to a gun)  and or it happens but ends bad "Knife Grappling" during CQC school I noticed that well planned out knife duels or stick duels pretty much never happen. It's more like someone attacks you beating you in the face with a stick or knife are pulled during a fight and both parties have seen the blades and this grappling dance takes place while trying to knife.

Explanations of grips and what they are good for was a interesting topic that I was educated on as of recent.

It's very hard to explain over a computer I would like to get together with Guide dog during the holidays and show him what I am talking about

For some reason I doubt that's what it was over. The could have been a way to spark the fight to the killing but I doubt that some guy looked over in a Urinal and commented on his penis.

I have been with friends at clubs who (Later To My Knowledge) Had made up stories in order for us to engage another group of guys.

This was my favorite.

A Old Friend of mine told us almost the same story except left cocks out. I guess some guy had been eye balln him for awhile. He said he walked into the bathroom and he was confronted by 2 guys and one of them being the guy that was eye balln him.

He came out and told this tale to us and in turn rallyed up to of my rather big friends. That sparked the whole drunkn engagement and Do you know how hard it is to try and talk in a club, While 2 big dudes are in your face asking you WTF are you and your homeboy F'n with their friend? Needless to say that even when you try and say "That didnt happen" everything comes out like F U and fist and feet start flying.

I later found out that this was all drunk talk and that guy never even stepped foot into the bathroom.

Some people do wild things when they are drunk and have no excuse. If this is Dublin and there was booze and a game, It could have been any reason for this stupid act.

Nice finds Maxx.
One thing we can say, thank goodness none of those people actually knew how to use a knife.
Too bad for that Mom that was killed trying to stop the car jacking to save her baby.
Breaks my heart when I hear things like that.


I don't care if they know how to use it or not. Someone swinging a knife at me has a black belt!!

Nice scores. How hot was it out there?  I was at Irwin last month (I teach explosive breaching and CQB for the Marines Special Operations Command) and it was HOT.  There was a storm that knocked out power.  Over 100 with no electricity. Good times.

Benning this time of year is nice too.  You get to add humidity and bugs to the heat.

I was Fu@%en Hot. Really Facken Hot. as a Matter of fact it was I liked it because it helped me push my limits in High Heat. Like I said before. Most of the Young guys who were going back in or attending their rsp training there were dropping of the radar like flys. a Couple guys (One who was returning who was Sp. Forces) were carrying the torch.

Not to gloat but I am because I want to make fun of the X-box/ Playstation generation but I work out and condition train about 5 to 6 times a week and maybe 2 to 3 times a day with fight training live mixed in there so I have the body of it. The Special Forces guy that was there and the other 4 older guys were in top TOP shape.

It felt great to walk out of the shower and watch the young pups quite down and kinnda get low spoken.

I looked around and nothing but flabby arm and shaggy gut. Now..Don't get me wrong not all of them were like that. The 17 to 23/24 year olds looked like that but then the deeper 20's to 30's looked better.

Here is a funny story. Three of the out of shape Wii Generation kids are talking to me and the Old Guys. They ask in turn what we are going back in as. It's gets to my turn and I say. Well, I was a Combat Driver and now I am going back in as a 29F Psy Ops..The Kid looks at me and says...That sounds weak. I am going to be a ranger.
Ex Special Operations guy looks at Child and goes " asshole, Do you even know what a Spec Ops guy is? Kid Goes " Um no but it doesnt sound hardcore like Ranger does" My buddy says " two things, One, YOU are never going to make it as a Ranger, TRUST me and two 29F go though hell to get attached to a unit that is going to go though hell just how a coremen gets attached to a Marines unit and he gets to go though hell

Needless to say...This kid was pretty mouth closed. Then we got to the PT and he did 14 half ass push ups in one min and 20 sit ups and dropped out of his 1 mile run

And you want to be a ranger??????  Ranger's Run to hell and back to heaven.

Question on this Method. How well does this method work against something like this

I spar with alot of friends in the Military/Personal life and this style of Prison Rush and stab seems to break though alot of Kali style of knife hold/ stances. Even a couple Rangers I know and Marines have been studying prison style knife attack.

Any views?  Cause all these method seem to work well against a person who has no weapon or is fencing with you..Or is slow motion flowing but what about the chaos.

Hey All,
 Long time no post. So I thought I would take a moment to throw up alittle post and say greetings. It's been a wild month so far. :wink:
I had just finish re-enlisting up back into the Military and have been up at Ft. Irwin getting thing's ready to head out to Ft. Benning to go to Close Quaters Combat School. I leave for Benning September 25th. Then from there I get attached to Ranger Batt that is over in Iraq right now already on a 4 month deployment and I will be joining them to finish off their 12 month deployment.

I also just finished finding out and heard that the program I will be attending was helped created by Marc Denny???? :?

I was told that we go though full contact stick fighting, Stick Grappling and other stick work corses. I looked at the Sgt. Face and said..I know who that person is. He said who? I said Mark Denny. I told him that I already trained in Kali and Kali under a Dog Brother named Guide Dog. Not to mention he started telling me what else goes on in CCQS and I was like. LOL..I already do this! This is gonna be great!

I was also shocked to find out that the CCQS knife work, Works around the Pkal Method of Blade down blade pointing in method 

Crafty, Did you happen to have anything to do with this also or was this the work of someone else?

So my Sgt. Said to me " Then I guess your going to be bored, HUH?" I said No Sgt. If this is the Same Marc Denny that I think it is then I feel better already.

So anyways to make a long story short. It's good to be back in the Military and it's good to say hello to the friends, I have made on this forum.


To Guide Dog and the rest. I am sorry I missed the Gathering. It broke my heart to not be able to attend. I was at Ft. Irwin doing alot of "Getting Back into The Military" Drills. I had to go over breaching rooms, Marching, Command levels, Everything.

But to make a funny. To those of you here that know or read my worthless post. I work out way to much. WAY TO MUCH and I had to do PT test against Other Military and Sgt's and I ended up smoking them all. As a matter of fact one of the Sgt. started yelling at most of the Returns about it and most of those returns were 10 years younger then me.

First PT test for my age group

Push Ups 17 in 1 min    I pulled off  Drum roll   --------> 80

Sit Ups for my Age Group - 30 in one min    I pulled off ------> 80

1 mile Run ( 4 laps around the track) 1 mile in under 8 mins  I pulled it off in -------> 6 mins

Second PT Test.
Everything is double to 2 mins in push ups and Sit Ups and the Sgt stoped me and said..Ok enough we get the point.
My 2 mile run ( 4 laps around the track) I pulled it off in 15 mins.

Most of the people younger then me were dropping off the map.. BAD XBOX GENERATION!!!

So by what he is saying here in this post is that Slashing would be more effective or I am reading it wrong? Because he seems to say that stab wounds might or could make the important stuff bend and fold around the blade.

I found that a little hard to swallow. Granted, a blunt penetrating object might push the aorta instead of lacerating it, but you'd rather be slashed than stabbed. You can control external hemorrhage.


What if you get Slashed across the stomach and get disemboweled? Or if the Slashing disemboweling weapon was long enough to hit organs as it slashed you open?
Or getting a deep slash across the throat? No to mention Arteries that get slashed. Isnt there a greater chance that a slashed Arterie can retracted deeper inside the body making it harder to get your hands on and pinch it off?

I am not a med. Just asking the question.
