That was only me yesterday. Training at home with “Flying Micke” ( see explanation at the end of the post :-))
After two weeks break because of illness, the start was not without pain..
Excellent training device , very simple and valuable exercise, one of Bruce ´s favourites. I like it too, a lot of time speed training is required to get faster. This is one of my goals this year, get faster, much faster..
Speed drills, trying to punch the mitt while Micke takes it away just before impact, I have big trouble with this one!
Same drill with hook kick …
Side kicks and work on the control of the kick when the partner backs up.
Weights added on the legs and arms:
Hook kicks on mitt , 20 on each side . Heavy drill ! If I thought I felt like an elefant before this was nothing compared to that.
To keep the on guard position with weight on the arms feels good , because I feel the position of the arms even better .
Heavy bag ( weights still on ):
3 minutes round
1 minute all techniques adding knees kicks and elbow punches
1 minute full power with all techniques adding high kicks
Yes this one with weights is very heavy, takes lots of energy and the good thing about is is when the weights are off, I felt so light and fast !! Good to feel the difference…
Press the arms up trying to lift the partner
Press against the wall with the arms using the whole body
Press the stomach up in sit-up position while the partner press down
Press the legs up lying on the back , trying to lift the whole 103 kgs body weight of Micke … !
That was it for the day ….
I added some stretching in the evening.
Add on : “This is How we do it !”
While showing me how to keep full control of the side kick , position and balance when the partner backs up , Micke went flying right down on the floor, I thought the floor had cracked ! Bad idea to wear socks for training! Too bad the camera was not on 🙂
