Day - Two:
We've got a few coaches in the gym. Jeff & Brad are the main coaches.
Jeff had us run 10-12 laps as a prelude to the conditioning.
I managed 10 in the time we had.
After this the 100 crunches & pushups again. I believe I hit 70-75 pushups out of 100 due to failure. On the last set of crunches I cranked out 2 for every one they did so I got in 150 of them tonight. I may end up trying to do 2 or 3 for every crunch the team does.
After the crunch & pushup circuit we had a large circuit drill:
30-second bursts @
Forward jumps over a line & side to side 10 jumps then switch.
Medicine ball twists to pass to partner behind you.
one-pound one-two combos
ducking (for lack of better terms)
one hand medicine ball pushups
we did 3x5 minute rounds of this
after this we did 3 rounds of 5 minute work on pads or bag, tonight I worked with a new kid (I'm new as well) on pads.
I strung some nice combos together. I noticed the partner was dropping his right hand so I told him "if you continue dropping the hand I'll hit ya" so when he did I threw a left hook with the mitt. It was a good thing for me and him.
After the mitt work we went outside for tire work.
We did 30 sledgehammer strikes per arm into a large tire. I heard Brad my personal coach commenting "he's got one of the heaviest strikes here tonight!" I was dragging that damn tire backwards with my blows!
After this I was told to do 20 double jumps, we would jump into the tire's center then jump out then run back to the start point. I was able to do 10 of these before I bent over wheezing like a coward.
After this was done we ran 5 blocks down and back to the gym.
Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die
