Yesterday was mostly about interception and speed , we also worked on blocking, with mitts and on the Redman.
I worked with Remy first and we did that footwork fun stuff, we have done this many times before, I really like this exercise and it is tougher than it sounds ! We face each other trying to step on each other´s feet, the key is to keep a good form and footwork and not to look like a couple of retards dancing around, we laughed but managed pretty good in my opinion.
Another thing I would like to talk about is holding pads or mitts. This is important to know how and not only for the other person. We worked on speed when one person is trying to punch or kick and the pad holder moves the pad away at the last second. Holding the pad correctly and moving it away correctly will avoid certain accidents !
Wrestling time ! Mikael had a lot of energy yesterday, Remy André and I went flying around a couple of times. Even André who is around 100 kgs, was picked up and thrown on the floor. I came last and wondered what´s the point ??? but I don´t think this is pointless, I would say it is the other way around, getting used to difficulty will make me better, even if trying to move Mikael is very hard, he gives us some opportunities to try some stuff and this is our job to recognize the openings and act.
Pushups situps and stretching after that, it was very quiet in the room during stretching time 🙂
