I had to write about today´s training. I train different things everyday, I try to harmonise during the week to cover it all.
Today was mostly on the heavy bag.
I started jumping the rope for a couple of minutes.
Then on the heavy bag I started slow:
Jab then cross then hook
jab and cross
jab cross and hook all together
then I work a round of 3 minutes with all hand techniques jab cross hook uppercut elbow…
I actually worked a while on the side kick first
Then low hook , normal and high, on both sides.
Right at the beginning (and because I use to hear it on sundays) I feel my guard is low when I kick, I decided to get a rope around my shoulders and put my arm in it, in the correct position which provided me from loosing my guard while kicking.
Amazing feeling here as I feel I got a whole new and better stability during kicking !
I have some work to do on the side kick still, the start position of the knee is too far on the inside, I know what I have to do, lift and kick, easy ! I just need to have my body to get it ! but as I train it again and again, I will get there.
Hook kicks feel good , front kick OK, I did not use any other kicks tonight , I thought I limit myself to a few.
Then I took it all on the heavy bag ( 180cm and 75 kgs ) it did not use to move a lot when I punched it , but as I got myself a bit stronger I see a difference now.
I did a couple of rounds on the heavy bag .
I decided to work on my straight lead again, and I took the gloves off to feel better, this is exactly what happens you feel the punch in a whole other way and when you hit wrong you know it because it hurts like hell 🙂
Anyway I am always happy about the feeling, if I get blisters so what , I train Martial Arts not golf 🙂
Some hard stretching after that ( I WILL get that split for heaven sake ! )
Push ups (and no girly ones in case you wonder, I ´d rather not do it at all! )
20 push ups- 20 secondes rest – 20 push ups … 5 times totally.
Then I could sit down and start thinking , my God training JKD is the best feeling in the world…
