Thanks for the encouragement Matt. It kind of funny because since I started I lost a few pounds already and find myself generally tighter in most areas. I figured my MA training (mostly cardio from sprints and kicking expersizes and rolling) would do that... but it kind of plateaued when I reached 195. For me to drop another 10 pounds would be great. I'll have to see if it helps with me getting gassed after a few minutes of standup. That would be sweet. I'm not the biggest fan of lifting, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it much more if I can see results in my MA training in terms of speed, power and endurance. Endurance has always been the kicker for me.
