The 5th Street Gym in Miami Beach Robbed

The 5th Street Gym in Miami Beach Robbed

I am out of the country for the summer, but I just got the call; The 5th Street Gym in Miami Beach was robbed. Cleaned out. Heisted.

Devastating news, as I am a member of The Gym and love that place more than anything. The stole all the equipment, photos, belts, hell, they even took the ring. It looks like the only thing left is the pull up bar and arm straps for hanging crunches. And the recently moved jump rope rack.

I can’t even imagine who would want all that stuff (except the photos) with all the blood, sweat and Dino’s dogs hair all over the place. Hell, there is some of my blood in that place. And for sure a bunch of my snot and saliva.

I am also amazed how they pulled this off. I mean hell, it is on the corner of 5th and Washington in South Beach. Not exactly a minor intersection in a 24 hour a day town.

Unreal. I wish Matt and Dino luck and I hope they get the gym up and running as soon as possible. Hell, I will be back in Miami Beach soon.

Real sh*tty news. And I thought I was having a great summer.

Side note:

It looks like there is a lot of misinformation about the location about the current The 5th Street Gym in regards to the old one. To set the record straight, the original 5th Street Gym was on the second floor of a building that was torn down. The current 5th Street Gym is in the new building, in the same location as the original on the first floor that it shares with a Wells Fargo location of all things.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) — A historic South Florida gym where some of boxing’s all-time greats have trained became the scene of a “crime ring” of sorts, Monday.
The 5th St. Gym, a Miami Beach landmark, was hit by burglars over the weekend. The inside was left gutted, stripped off its boxing ring. That’s right, the entire ring was somehow picked up and hauled away, along with lots of equipment and personal files. “Well, we were vandalized, as you can see, and the ring was stolen,” said Nina Spencer, whose son owns the gym, “the whole ring. That whole area there was a boxing gym.”
And this was not just any ring in any gym. This is a gym steeped in the history of boxing. Autographed photos of Muhammad Ali, George Foreman and Sugar Ray Leonard once hanged on the gym’s walls. Now, they too are gone. “This is so sad,” said Spencer. “It’s devastating. We’re devastated.”
The 5th St. Gym opened on Miami Beach in the 1950s. Famed boxing trainer Angelo Dundee who trained, among others, Muhammad Ali, was part owner of the gym. In a YouTube video, Dundee speaks of the greatness and history associated with the gym: “It’s a great place to train because fighters like to sweat, and man, you could sweat in Miami Beach.”

Ten Step Nightlife Preparation Routine

» 18 February 2013 » In Boxing, G Manifesto, Game, Guide, Nightlife, Style » 16 Comments

Nightlife Preparation Routine

People always ask me how I prepare for a night out. Well, it is a complicated step-by-step process now that I have to do every night before I go out.

It takes a while, but you will feel 120% everytime when your roll (and I don’t mean Beans, either).

First things first, I have a good day. I go to the boxing gym or get a good workout on. Then, after getting some work done, I go for a good open ocean swim. This helps clear the head no matter what you did the night before. Then I usually swim some underwater laps in the pool. I typically get a little sunset walk on as well to clear the mind. Or I get a second work out at my boxing gym.

When nighttime rolls around, this is what I do:

1. Take a little Vampire Nap. This can be from anywhere to 10 minutes to and hour long depending on my schedule and what I did the night before.

2. I glup a cup of Green Tea. This wakes me up from my nap and clears the gulliver.

3. I go through my stretch routine. I may post this sometime. This is kind of a new thing for me in the last 4 years, but is essential. You have to be loose and flexible on a night out. Also bust out some ab exercises and maybe push ups depending on my workouts that week.

4. I put an Ice Pack on my eyes. This relieves the puffiness from the night before and feels really good. While I have on my Ice Pack, I

5. Shadow Box. I will typically make my crib warmer for a little sweat flow. This gets you real loose. I will Shadow Box to some dope tracks.

James Brown – Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag (Olympia 1967)

6. Foam Roll. Foam Rolling takes all the kinks and knots out of your body. It is pretty amazing. I actually looked at getting into the Foam Roll Biz for a little while, but declined. I decided I didn’t want to be “The Foam Roll Guy”.

7. Apple Cider Vinegar. I bust out a shot of ACV with some water. Rinse out the mouth after.

8. Shower. A good dose of Aqua-therapy never hurt anyone.

9. When I step out of the shower, a Custom Suit literally appears on my body. It is kind of strange. I usually Shadow Box for a little more just to feel the vibe.

10. Pour myself a Cocktail (Vodka Soda with a lime; cleanest cocktail you can drink) and spark up a smoke.

Now I am ready.

You get tough like me and you don’t get hurt. You look out for yourself and nothing can touch you.

My Game Just Rewinds

My Game Just Rewinds

I haven’t been updating The G Manifesto too much lately as I arrived in a new city and have been in “Pipe-Building Mode”. Real successful.

And now, I am just enjoying the fruits of my labor. Girls are exiting out the back door of my building and right after, girls are entering the front door. Pretty sick. Girls flights leaving at 11am and lunch swoops with a different girl at 2pm type sh*t.

I have even had fly Sioux and Pawnee girls creep me in their teepee.

And pushing out all the weesh guys in my way with their “Econo-Spray” game.

My biz prayers were answered today too.

Even white girls from the suburbs are are starting to call me “Mugabi” because I have been such a straight up beast.

Hopefully, I should be dropping some more heavy duty Montreal Sheets soon.

Montreal: The High-End and Low-End Theory

» 20 November 2012 » In Boxing, Dope, Food, Guide, Luxury, Nightlife, Style, Travel » 7 Comments

Montreal: The High-End and Low-End Theory

“When you’re too hood to be in them Hollywood circles.
And you’re too rich to be in that hood that birthed you.”
– Nas

A lot of young up and coming G’s on the rise stop me on the streets and ask me the secret to my success.

Truthfully, I am not exactly sure what it is. But I realized something in Montreal:

I rock The High-End and Low-End Theory. I think this separates me from most of the Trust Fund International Playboys that you see out there cutting it up.

What I mean by The High-End and Low-End Theory, is I pretty much always roll in really high end scenes or really low end scenes. You won’t catch me in the suburbs at Applebee’s ordering the filet well done. (I only eat steaks rare. Hell, I would eat them raw if they would serve them to me.)

In Montreal, I would work out, do pushups and shadow box in the parks with heroin addicts. And then at night, you would see me in the dopest clubs partying with fly girls and model girls.

I noticed, that the people you would see in the parks wouldn’t be at the club.

And the people at the club, wouldn’t be in the parks with the heroin addicts.

It was only your humble author that you would find in both.

I thought about this, and it has been pretty standard in my life. You might find me in the ghetto during the day, and at the Polo matches in the afternoon. You might find me in the East Village of San Diego giving out food to the homeless in the morning, and at The Turf Club of The Del Mar Racetrack in the afternoon. You might find me chilling on Vine and at The Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California during the day and at Bouchon in Beverly Hills at night.

Bottom line, I keeps it real.

Because, how do you know where you are going if you don’t look back?

(By the way, you want to learn Game? Then quit reading all those pick up artist jokers, and watch Roberto Duran. Now transpose that into your life. Now you have Game.)

Adrien Broner: I Would Rather Be a Playboy

» 18 November 2012 » In Boxing, People » 5 Comments

Adrien Broner: I Would Rather Be a Playboy

After dismantling Antonio DeMarco of Tijuana for The WBC lightweight World Championship, Larry Merchant asked Adrien Broner if he would rather be known as a “Boxer or a Fighter”.

His response:

“If I had a choice, I would be a Playboy, Larry.”

Quote of the year.

Adrien Broner: I Would Rather Be a Playboy

It is also kind of strange, since when I was a young cub, I always wanted to be a professional boxer. And now I am an International Playboy. It is funny how the world works.

Anyways, Adrien Broner is the real deal. Is he the next Pernell Whitaker? Not sure. Is he the next Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Not sure either.

However, I think he may punch harder than both those guys.

Adrien Broner Knockouts – Boxing Highlights

On another note, I have been so disconnected from boxing lately, that I didn’t even know that Emanuel Steward passed away.

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Emanuel Steward on more than a few occasions. The first time when I was really young. I am not completely sure he ever remembered me, but he was the coolest cat you will ever meet.

G Manifesto Hall of Fame Member of the highest order.

Rest in Peace, boxing will never be the same.

On that same note of being disconnected, I finally watched Sergio Martinez VS Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Amazing fight.

Sergio Martinez is The Man. He fights at a level that is so damn elevated. Tons of heart too. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. also proved himself to the haters. I have always said that people were way too hard on the kid. He can fight.

Hollywood Restaurant and Nightclub Data Sheet

» 01 November 2012 » In Boxing, Dope, Food, G Manifesto, Guide, Travel, Wine » 5 Comments

Hollywood Restaurant and Nightclub Data Sheet

“I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They’re beautiful. Everybody’s plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.” – Andy Warhol

“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.” – Marilyn Monroe

Let’s breakdown one of my favorite West Coast hoods:

3 Clubs – I have been going to this place since I was a little kid. In fact, it used to be my Base of Operations back in the day. I have swooped mass girls out of this piece. I still dig it.

El Floridita – Great spot to get your Cuban grind on if you haven’t been to Miami in a while. Salsa dancing on Mondays. Which is legit because the place holds fly girls like:

Wild Card Boxing Club – One of my favorite on Earth. Not just Boxing Gym’s, one of my favorite places on Earth. This place is it. Nowhere do I feel more comfortable and in my element than Wild Card Boxing Club. Straight up love this place. Data Sheet Here: Wild Card Boxing Club, Hollywood, CA: It Ain’t Easy

Los Balcones – Good spot for a little Peruvian grind. Can be some girls here. Hit or miss on that front though.

Bodega Wine Bar – I actually just checked, and it closed in Hollywood. That is ok though, this place was hyped on the Internet, but I think that it really sucked.

Wood and Vine – Not a bad spot to take a girl for a little vino. Food doesn’t blow minds, but this place is A-OK when my AK sprays when I say my ABC’s in my book.

W Hotel, Hollywood – Place is pretty weesh. But then again, I hate all phony boutique hotel chains like The W.

Katsuya – Every moron props this place. It sucks. Chefs are retarted. Overpriced hack job. Maybe if you are from Ohio you would think it’s dope. Typical weesh SBE Entertainment crap.

Cleo – That being said, Cleo is by SBE also and is kind of decent. The bar can be good for swooping. I have swooped a few Armenian girls out this piece.

Hollywood Roosevelt – Didn’t go here on this trip. But believe it or not, my MOM stayed here recently. She even had a hook up on a discounted room!

Musso and Frank – Old school. I got this place on lock.

Supper club – I don’t feel this place.

Pizzeria Mozza – I am down with this spot. Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali and Joseph Bastianich running the show.

Go Burger – Good spot to get your burger on.

Bliss Café – Real Wimpster spot. I don’t really step to this spot, although I would under the right circumstances.

Magnolia – Not bad for a casual grind.

Sabinas – Good cheap spot for a lunch grind.

Off Vine – Good spot to take a fly girl. Food is decent, not mindblowing.

L’Scorpion – Tequila bar. I don’t step here.

El Pueblo Viejo – Decent Mex.

La Numero Uno – Good Salvadoran grinds. Closes too early though.

The Redbury Hotel – Houses Cleo mentioned above.

Lexington Social House – This was my spot back when I stayed in Hollywood last time. Defeated a bunch of weesh Actor guys and swooped heavy. Door guy can be a pain, unless you have him on lock. Thankfully, I do.

Beso – I don’t step here.

Xiomara – Not a bad grind for dinner to mix things up.

Doomies – Vegetarian grind. Pretty good too.

Sushi Hiroba – Ok. Not really feeling it. Not a top notch sushi joint.

Cactus Taqueria – This place gets high marks all around, but is not that great Mex. Doesn’t compare to San Diego Taco Shops.

Philly Steak out – Always wanted to hit this place up.

Flaming Patty’s – Never hit up.

El Dorado Peruvian – Another spot I have my eye on.

2012 Presidential Debate Scorecard: Obama VS Romney

» 23 October 2012 » In Boxing, Guide, People » 9 Comments

2012 Presidential Debate Scorecard: Obama VS Romney

Just finished watching the last debate, last night. Let’s break them down:

Debate #1: Romney moves and throws the occasional hard shot. Obama just covers up and responds with the occasional weak pawing jab.

It kind of reminds me of Pacquiao vs. Clottey, where Clottey just didn’t show up. (Comparing Romney to Pac is a more than generous comparison for Romney, but you get the point).

Romney by Unanimous Decision.

Debate #2: Biden VS Ryan

Biden bullies and bloodies his younger opponent. Reminds me of Bernard Hopkins punishing the younger Kelly Pavlik. Biden has way too much ring generalship for his weaker opponent.

Side Note: The Democratic Party should do some deeper digging into Ryan’s past. Guaranteed their is probably a ton of gay p0rn there. Even more certainly, there is gay p0rn in Ryan’s future.

Biden wins almost every round to a clear cut Unanimous Decision.

Debate #3: Obama comes out head hunting looking to avenge the last loss. He does. Romney throws back, but is outclassed.

Similar to Ali VS Frazier II.

Obama by Unanimous Decision.

Debate #4:

Obama comes out hard, smacks Romney around throughly, and gets a late round stoppage. If Romney was on the streets, he would be real nervous with the heater.

Reminds me of Roberto Duran vs Esteban DeJesus III.

Obama by TKO in the 12th. (You can start watching at 7:56).

And there you have it.

Obama wins 2-1.

Democrats win 3-1.

Side Note:

I know it is beyond ridiculous to compare Romney and Ryan to any of these boxers. Romney and Ryan couldn’t mop up the gyms that these guys work out in.

A State of Grace With Alcohol And Fitness

» 23 July 2012 » In Boxing, Dope, G Manifesto, Game, Girls, Guide, Nightlife » 5 Comments

A State of Grace With Alcohol And Fitness

“I’ll be Jackie Flannery and you’ll be Terry Noonan.”

I might be having the best summer of my life.

One of the reasons is I have been living in a A State of Grace With Alcohol And Fitness for almost two months straight.

I have been going out each week 3-5 nights. Well, I am kind of lying, I don’t think I have gone out as little as 3 nights in a week yet.

And I booze heavy. And I feel phenomenal.

Here is how to achieve A State of Grace With Alcohol And Fitness:

1. Drink Vodka and Soda with a lime. Top Shelf only. This is the cleanest cocktail you can drink. It’s what the pros drink.

2. With dinner, I always have in front of me, a Vodka and Soda with a lime, a glass of Vino, and a water. If you round robin those three, you will get into the zone.

3. Avoid heavy shot taking. You can do a few if the situation calls for it, but avoid doing 10 shots in a night.

4. Wack down double espressos after your meals. It prevents cirrhosis of the liver.

5. Get your workouts in. 2 1/2 hours a day minimum. I have been off Boxing for a while. My shoulder started “clicking” a little at The Wildcard Gym, because I was throwing my jab with so much authority. Lately, I have been getting in my roadwork, shadow boxing a little, working on footwork, Doing Pushups, and swimming for an hour a day. Mad underwater laps. And swooping mad fly girls.

If you do this, you will find yourself in A State of Grace where you can party all night and maintain great shape.

In fact, partying non-stop is more of a mental challenge for me than a physical challenge.

Last Friday night, my mind actually “scrambled” for a minute. I straight up lost it. My mind that is, not my Game. I had to jump into a Gentleman’s Club to clear my head.

I guess it’s just a thought, though my mind is kinda hazy, my name is Michael, baby.

Later this week, I will tell you about the Greatest Hangover Cure in The World.

The sh*t works. Trust me, it is not one of those BS hangover cures that everyone is always yapping about.

It’s legit.

I’m living in A State of Grace and it’s a f*cked up place. I’ll put my Game in your face.

Custom Suit Body Punches

» 15 July 2012 » In Boxing, Game, Girls, Nightlife, Style » 5 Comments

Custom Suit Body Punches

I bust styles, new styles, standing Strong, while, others run a hundred miles. – Ice Cube

This is an old school G Manifesto move from the Chambers of around the time I started writing The G Manifesto:

Back when I was really making my mark in The Game, I used to stay at a lot of dope hotels, like Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton’s, Peninsula’s and Mandarin Orientals. Not to mention ill independents.

I would usually conduct meetings with a few heavies in the lobby bars over drinks during a few day period.

Of course, I was Suited Down in a different hard hitting combination each night.

As you know, many times these hotels have some pretty dope cocktail waitresses.

I would usually ignore them for the most part, as I was focused on biz and I don’t mean Markie, either.

However, after a few days of the cocktail waitress seeing how I operated, Custom Suited Down, they would usually step to me.

After swooping a few fly cocktail waitresses and finally swooping one super fly cocktail waitress at Lowes in Miami Beach, I realized what was happening:

The Custom Suits were landing on these girls like heavy body punches.

The dope Custom Suit combinations were simply wearing these girls down.

I definitely recommend looking into it.

My Game should be locked in a cell. It ain’t hard to tell.

One Hundred Push Ups In A Row

» 08 July 2012 » In Boxing, Dope, G Manifesto, Guide » 11 Comments

One Hundred Push Ups In A Row

A while back, I wrote one of the most innovative pieces of all time on fitness called Entering The Dragon.

I am mildly surprised that it didn’t revolutionize the entire fitness industry. But that is neither here nor there.

Anyways, I recently came across a site called One Hundred Push Ups.

Basically, it is a 6 week program where you progressively do more push ups until you can reach one hundred in a row. Make sense?

Well, I just completed it fool.

I did it with a little “G Manifesto Twist” of course.

First off, I took 8 weeks to complete it. This was mostly because I was Boxing and swimming a lot. And I was hung over tons of days.

Most days are broken up into 5 sets of push ups per day. I would do it like this:

1st set: Narrow Push Up (for lack of a better term).

2nd set: Wide Push Up

3rd set: Incline Push Up

4th set: Decline Push Up

5th set: Standard Push Up

This is a good way to do it. (On the days with more sets, just double up.)

Also, I would do it while I was getting my road work in. I just so happen to be in a city with mad beautiful parks, so I would just stop and knock them out on the concrete.

A couple side notes:

I have been doing push ups since I was a kid. My Dad used to make me do them before going to school each day.

Push ups, Sit ups and Pull ups, have been a staple of my work out routine my whole life. I set my high school sit up record, which still stands to this day.

Always remember to breathe.

The final day was actually pretty core.

I banged out the first 50 pretty easily. The next 20 were tough. The next ten were harder. The next ten were deadly. The next five were mental. The next four were core. The last one, I almost thought I couldn’t do.

But I am not the type to get to the one yard line and not finish.

Great headrush. Like Drugs.

Keep in mind, many people have pulled this off.

But what I would like to know is how many of those cats completed the program while smoking three packs of cigarettes per day, and partying and swooping girls till 7am many nights?

Hell, I was up till 7am swooping a fly French Moroccan Girl the night before I busted the hundred.

May guess would be very few.
