The Fighter In The Picture

Now that I’m back into the swing of things, I thought I would give you an update on how I’m doing, both with the physical transformation and with moving the movie TUFF ahead.

After the flu I had dropped ten pounds. That was largely weight that consisted of water and fat. However, in three days I have been able to add back about six pounds, using the growth phase strategies from Naturally Massive. Also, as I mentioned in an earlier post, my metabolism got cranked during my bout with a fever, so I got a side benefit of added fat loss from running hot for a few days.

On the diet side of things I have been eating a lot more  again and washing it all down with lots of water. These first few weeks are fantastic for getting a muscle growth benefit from the added calories, since my body is still adapting to my new training regime. Very little, if anything, is getting stored as fat.

So building the look of the character Tuff is on track again, but what about the abilities of the character. I mean he has to move like a man of action. In answer to that problem I got talking to my good friend and stunt coordinator, Max White.

Max has done some really cool stuff. He did a lot of the stunts in Hellboy II, Bullet Proof Monk and the movie 300. He and some of the guys he works with did some really awesom samples for me, based on the TUFF script. Max looked at the character in the script and talked to his stunt team guys. The next thing I know Max sends me the below video clip, that two guys he works with put together. The idea they had was to show me some of the fighting styles they see us possibly using for the character of Tuff in scenes tat require fights.

The combinations look pretty  fantastic and both Max and his stunt pals were good enough to let me share the sequences with you. Max and his team have done a ton of big project stuff and so I am really excited about anything they are talking about in terms of the action for Tuff. In my case, it looks like I am going to need a little practice to move like these guys do. Here it is:

    Cool, glad you have recovered from flu and back in action.

    Man, those stunt moves are incredible!

    Yet another genuine reason for getting TUFF is for the functional strength benefits of self defense.

    Hi Sebastian,

    Looks like you’ll be learning Aikido Ninjisu for the character of Tuff. There is some cool clips of on utube if you type in “real aikido street fights” Steven Segeal style. Take a look if you can find a minute!

    Tuff looks like it will have some great action if you’ll have fight skills like in your demo video.

    Keep up the great progress.

  3. I’ll be letting the stunt guys walk me through the moves. However, I do plan on getting some of the training on video.

    Good to hear from you guys.

    Best,
    Sebastian
