Last sunday was a really hard training on pads and mitts just as I like them.
It was only Will and so the intensity was increased, there was no time to rest !
I warmed up first and jumped rope for 3 minutes
Then we worked on mitts and also on thai pads.
. Straight lead
Then with combinations:
. Straight lead, cross, hook
. Straight lead , cross, hook , hook last one with movement of the body to the right with blast to the ribs (light touch)
Then we worked on static hook ( to get the feeling of the punch and the hip rotation , no footwork) on both sides, facing the pads with a wider stance.
Then we added kicks :
. Front kick , straight lead, cross, hook
. 3 quick hook kicks, then 4 – working on both sides
Then we did some series of hook kicks first right, then left.
Kicking while the pad holder is backing up, right and left , back and forth:
. Hook kick
. Spinning wheel kick
. Axe kick
We finished with stretching .
As we all noticed, these sessions are really good and we asked Micke for more. We will incorporate those more often in our routines.
