Intimidation sponsored BMX athlete Chris Peterie finds additional success competing in Nebraska

August 24, 2014 by  
Filed under Athlete Sponsorships, News, Sponsorships

Intimidation Clothing sponsored BMX athlete Chris Peterie put on one of his best performances of the year in a recent trip to Nebraska from his home state of Oklahoma. Chris Peterie BMXThe 16-year-old has been on the rise since signing on with Intimidation last year.

A recent update from Chris:

This weekend I participated in the Cornhusker Nationals event race in Lincoln, Nebraska. In the first round on Saturday I qualified in my cruiser class (24″ tall wheel) to the main with a second place out of five riders. In two round they take two of the top riders from each round in that moto behind Taylor Riedemann.

In my class race (20″ tall wheel) I qualified first out of five riders to a semi main. In my semi main for class I got the far outside gate which was gate 8. After I came out of the I took a quick glance to my left to see my position into the first turn and in the first turn I got pushed up by a rider on the inside of me and I was forced to take the pro section jumps (more advanced jumps). When I took the pro section advanced my position from 7th to 5th and was right behind the 4th place rider and the last qualifying spot. Heading into the rhythm section I tried to stay as smooth as possible and was about to make a move into 4th when a rider with more momentum came under me on the inside and passed me and took 5th from me. I tried hard but didn’t have the speed nor the momentum to pass him back. 

In my cruiser main I blasted out of the gate trailing Taylor Riedemann into the first turn. I trailed Taylor around the whole track breaking away from third and fourth. 

On Sunday in cruiser one kid didn’t race so there was only four racers, so in the first round I came behind Taylor. In class I didn’t qualify the first round because I spun out in the gate and could only salvage a third. In the second round I had redemption on my mind and dominated both class and cruiser with a first place finish. In my semi the same exact thing happened just like on Saturday. I was very disappointed in class. In cruiser I got in the gate next to Taylor and were close the whole way around and I finished behind him by less than two bike lengths. Overall it was one of my better weekends I’ve had for a while especially in cruiser.

Rogers was featured on this list at #4 for his vicious flying knee knockout over Adrian Miles at Bellator 119 in May. He’s made a career out of spectacular flying knee knockouts, as his knockout over Vitor Vianna at Bellator 61 has been named as the top KO in Bellator history multiple times. “The Predator” will be back in action looking for another KO when he faces James Irvin in the co-main event at Bellator 125 next month.

Parsons earned the top spot on the list for his absolute pasting of Tim Bazer at Bellator 117 earlier this year. The Minnesotan needed just 4 seconds in the second round to send Bazer “crashing violently to the canvas with a potent two-punch combination.”

Roxanne Modafferi Monthly: Should I go to practice today?

Let’s say you wake up Monday morning feeling great because you rested all day Sunday watching movies or playing Super Mario Brothers on your Nintendo.  You internally shout, “I’m gonna kill it today!”  You go to practice or hit the gym, have a spectacularly good performance, and surpass your goals.  However, you pull your back, badly bruise your shin, tweak your knee, and sleep only three hours because somebody’s dog was barking all night outside your window.  You wake on Tuesday feeling like poop.

Roanne Modafferi MMA“Should I go to practice today?”  You wonder.

Our coaches or trainers sagely cross their arms, nod, and say in a deep, wise voice, “Listen to your body.”

But coach, I can’t hear my body.  It’s too noisy in my head.

“It’s only Tuesday, too soon to take a rest day!”  “Don’t be such a wimp.”  “Am I a weakling?”  “No pain no gain!” “What will the team think of me? They’re tired, too.” “I have to push myself or I’ll never become stronger.” “I  have to go!” “Bobby has a competition coming up, and I have to help him train.” “Today’s class is taught by my favorite teacher and I don’t want to miss it.”  “I have to work out as part of my diet to lose weight.” “I swore I would work off those ten cans of beer I had after training last night.”

Depending on your situation, you can go in to training and ‘go light.’  Only do technique and not sparring in a martial arts class, or do cardio like running or light weight-lifting.  For others, it’s not so easy – if you join the class, you’re expected to go hard.

For me, half the time I decide to go in a push myself, I struggle but make it through okay.  The other half of the time, I injure myself.  It’s literally 50/50 for me. That percentage makes it difficult to know when to stay home or when to go in.However, if you fall into the habit of always staying home if you’re tired, you’ll never push yourself and never get stronger.

roxanne-modafferi_450The key phrase for me is, “We train to get stronger.”  If you have an injury and by training on it it’ll get worse, you should let it heal a little longer and work another body part. Or if you’ve been sleeping two hours every day for the past two weeks, for goodness sakes, stay in bed and get some recovery time.

Mentality plays a roll.  Start to be conscious of your own state of mine.  If you’re positive and looking forward to training, I think it’s less likely you’ll hurt yourself, compared to if you drag your gloomy self to the gym, loathing practice.For some people, though, it’s only the guilt of eating those two sausage pizzas last night that will motivate them to get their butts to the gym.  So if you’re in a bad mood because your whole body hurts, how do you ‘be positive?’

“Listen to your body.”  Easier said than done.Our bodies are always talking to us, but we can’t always hear them, and we can’t tell our mind to shut up.  Our brain has valid points.  Here are some tricks I use to determine how my day will go.

I tell myself, “Okay, let’s get ready to go!” and I start packing up my bag.  As I’m packing or preparing my food or supplements, I fill my mind with every positive thing about my gym, both in imagery and mental words. “I’ll see my coach, tell him a new corny joke and hear him groan, enjoy chatting with my training partner friends, learn new techniques, grab my yummy morning cup of Starbucks on the way to the gym….”

Sometimes, my brain will grudgingly fall into the normal morning pattern, and my body cooperates.  With my body still complaining a bit, I find myself walking out the door mentally prepared.  I’ve just convinced myself that it will be a positive experience and my body WANTS to try to cooperate.  Other times, after I’ve finished packing, my mind finishes it’s positive list, there’s one mentally still moment …and I hear a quiet internal voice say, “….I really need to lay down now.”

I ask it, “Okay, so how about we just go jogging or lift weights? How about it? Yeah yeahyeah? Then you won’t feel so guilty! ”  I imagine myself jogging.  I get up and take a walk around my apartment complex, maybe jog for a block.  If my body says, “Fine, but I hate you,” then I do that.  If I feel resistance in the pit of my stomach, I stay home.  We only do what we can do until we can do more.

One more tactic I try is to put on music that will pump me up.  You’d be surprised how our bodies react to music.  Every time I listen to the Power Rangers theme song, I get rush after rush of adrenaline, and I feel twice as awake, and excited.  That’s because it was my walk out music to when I fought in the UFC.  My body remembers and is conditioned.  Humans try to naturally avoid pain, so it’s up to our minds to will-power us through when our body is resisting us.

Many of us struggle with this choice of “Should I train today or not?” and it’s up to you as an individual to develop a way to hear your body through all your mind’s noise, and the conflicting emotion swirling around.  Identify the thoughts and emotions, address them, and listen hard for that soft voice which is really your body trying to make itself heard.  Sometimes, however, we don’t know if we’ll be okay until we actually start practice.  That’s just the way it is.

When it comes to competition sports, I’d like to quote Ronda Rousey on TUF 18 in saying, “You’re not just training to be the best in the world, you’re training to be the best in the world on your worst day.”

Good luck! Happy training!
