This video is the best 4 out of 7 falls between Andi and Sannah. Andi is 5’2, 123 lbs, while Sannah is 5’8, 150. Andi does not fear taking on bigger girls, as she has fought Scarlett, Beth, Jessica, and Tia, all who had strength and weight on her. Sannah has fought Tia (lost) and Jessa (won). We are not sure what happened to create the animosity between these two fighters, but you could feel it from the start. Andi is always sweet and cute in her pre-fight interviews, and you wouldn’t expect the tigress that comes out when she steps onto the mat. We do know that every fight Andi has turns very rough. Andi likes to inflict pain. Sannah had something to prove. Sannah goes right after Andi’s hair, and we know a war has started. Both girls hurt each other with submissions. At one point they hit and kick each other while on the mat during an angry exchange. There is true animosity to the very end of this rough fight.
Strength and Training
As a participant with Freshfite, and a certified personal trainer I understand the importance of training and nutrition. This blog will give the world an idea of a fighter’s lifestyle and how I maintain conditioning.
For proper training strength is vital. In wrestling your strength is a major factor on a win or a loss. Even despite your size your strength can determine if you can take on someone taller or who weighs more. Yet I’m not referring to ‘dumb’ strength. I am talking about the power that comes from high quality muscle. It happens too often where people either neglect or overdo training and nutrition.
You hear your buddy say “Ah man I spent a good two hours pumping the iron in the gym today! I have been for the past two weeks, I haven’t seen too much progress though… well, better make it three hours and I will make some progress for sure!” – This mindset is an example of a ridiculous cycle that the majority of people go through. It is a great amount of time spent working out that is actually being wasted. What many do not realize is that they could be spending much less time working out by adding one major thing- INTENSITY. Intensity will increase your work effort, but decrease the work time. Which in turn will allow one to get more accomplished in a smaller amount of time. Mike Mentzer was the granddaddy bodybuilder of high intensity training and was living proof of its effectiveness in the gym.
3×8 (heavy weight) vs 4×15 (light weight)
With the first 3×8, which correlates to eight reps for three sets, you’d lift heavier so you fail near the end of the set. Each rep is concentrated, a nice even contraction, making each rep about five seconds long. (rather than some ‘speed reppers’ that you may see) This way you get the most out of each rep. There is no room for error in form or chance to use momentum to ‘cheat’ a rep. Remember if you can easily make it to the eight reps you may need to INCREASE the weight. Some (often females) are afraid of this idea of increasing weight. I will tell you ladies, as one myself, DO NOT be afraid to lift heavy. You will not turn all manly. By challenging your body this way you will adequately burn fat and retain muscle in a feminine way. (Unless you are a female whom takes steroids… which I don’t see the need)
Compared to 4×15:
This is a set/rep range favored by many ‘aerobic’ fanatics or some fitness magazines. This is no way to see results. As many would say you would be ‘spinning your wheels’ Four sets are really too many… three is just enough to get to failure with your heavy lift. And if you can lift anything for 15 repetitions, please put more weight on… the only way to create fat loss and muscle growth is to properly fatigue the muscle by performing high intensity lifts using glucose stores in the body. In turn burning that fat so that task can be done.
So in order to continue progressing in your muscle growth you must-
1. Continually increasing weight for lifts when possible
2. Intake more calories than you normally burn (Nutrition will be covered in a later blog)
3. Take each set to total failure!
Don’t forget that by increasing the intensity it will leave you with much more time to relax and recover from your hard workout! Rest and recovery is a vital part of muscle building. Now, as a Freshfite(r), I pride myself in winning. Gaining the advantage and seeing the opportunity for a take down on my opponent. To gain that advantage it takes more than determination. It takes smart training, being aware what I put into my body and knowing how it affects my fighting performance.

We’re the new kid on the block. We’ve seen some great promotions like TUFF, DWW, and others, and our goal is to be what they were…all real, unscripted, competitive fighting, grappling, catfighting and more. We will do some boxing, armwrestling, test of strength competitions, but we’re not going to cross over into posed, faked, roll around stuff. Plenty of those sites around. Our fighters like to fight for real, like that they are learning and expanding their martial arts skills, and want to keep getting better. Look for us to do some live events and more.
