Ian Dawe – High Life; The Art of Living for Free – Chapter 21

By:

Making the transition from featherweight (145lbs) to bantamweight (135lbs) was a necessary move on my part. Although I was winning fights and competitive at featherweight, the size and strength differential made becoming a top contender very difficult.

Over the past few weeks I have put an emphasis on improving my strength and conditioning. I was a little lost at first but with theĀ  help of my friend Simon Marini (MFC 155lbs contender) and James Sutherland (Better Bodies Nutrition) I was able to put together a great workout and supplement plan.

I am going to start working drills and technique combined with strength and conditioningĀ  this week. I have been out of the ring for a few months and am looking forward to being a lot more active in the new year.

Stay tuned.

Clarkey was working as the head co-ordinator for the Canadian College Human Resources Convention held at the Delta Chelsea in downtown Toronto this week. Having spent a lot of time sneaking in and out of hotels and taking advantage of their amenities, those who dare to call 82 Beverley home have become quite skilled in the art of living for free while in the city.

Here are a few pictures of our stay at the Delta Chelsea.
