Tonight I thought I would add some drills that I should do more often
I started warming up with jumping rope
Footwork : going forward on a straight line covering the whole room then backwards a couple of times, right and left lead . I also worked on side steps , using right and left lead as well.
Shadow boxing: focus on the correct footwork and speed coming back in on guard , doing series and combinations.
Series of jabs
jab and cross
jab cross and hook
I actually only worked on hook kicks tonight, I tried some series of fast ones
Paper drill: I put the paper into place and worked on the famous paper drill:
I worked on jabs for a while and added all punches following the rotation and movement of the paper, trying to keep appropriate footwork , correct technique, power and speed
Keeping the position up, trying to stay in balance , Hook and sidekicks. I noticed my leg was too low so was my upperbody, especially in the sidekick position.
I decided to do some stretching, first on the floor and then I attached a rope on the top of the bag , I attached my foot on one side of the rope and pulled the other side.
I was not really happy with this one, it did not hurt enough. I have to find an adjustment to that exercise so I can feel it working.
I did some more statical leg training and went on the floor to stretch again until it hurt too much to go on.
Then I was done with the sesssion…
Micke Told me I´d better be in Top Shape before the summer… I guess I will have to work even harder… 🙂
