Life at the Tapout House with female MMA fighter Tami Carswell – Are we having fun yet?

Photo by Tracy Lee - Tami and the Tapout House crew out celebrating the night before WEC 45 weigh-ins.

I am back to training harder; working on all the parts of Tami that can be worked on. Greg gave me a training protocol to work my hips on the ground which I am very happy about since I can’t roll around on my shoulder right now.

There was a pumped up feeling around the house this week in which our boy Cowboy has been getting ready for WEC 45 in Vegas this weekend. Cowboy would just break out into random bouncing around saying he couldn’t wait for this fight. It’s been fun to witness his playfulness around fighting. You can see how much fun this is for him.

Unfortunately, for his opponents Cowboy has “Play Time” tattooed on his shins. True Dat!!! At the weigh-ins Cowboy bounced out with all that energy to face Ed Ratcliff who immediately put a smile on Cowboy’s face by saying that he was going to knock him out.

Tami Carswell’s Tapout house blog – Victory favors those that take pain

We started out strong going into the gym. Everyone energized from a chill weekend. First we had some great stand up drills lead by Greg and then we switched to take downs.

When it was my turn I entered with the intention of defending anything that came my way. Staying low, I was ready when my opposition shot in on me, sprawling out I defended the shoot.

What happened next I did not anticipate. My sparring partner grabbed my torso on the ground, picked me up, and slammed me down right on my shoulder. When I got up I knew something was different.

Life at the Tapout House with female MMA fighter Tami Love Carswell – Introduction

My name is Tami Love Carswell and I am a female MMA fighter constantly working on making my dreams come to fruition. I have been training and learning as much about this sport as fast as possible. I started out only with “The Sweet Science” of boxing and soon began working on many other fight skills with the goals of perfecting them.

I have been very fortunate to partner up with Boom Superfoods in my mission to rise to the top. For me it was important to find a product that I believed in and one that would assist my body during training. In my initial conversation with Jeff McIntosh owner and alchemist of Boom Superfoods, I agreed to try FOODFIGHT and let him know how it resonated with me.
