GMW's Training Log
Gonna give this a try. I keep a log of what I do anyways so I might as well record it here.
12.8% body fat (as of 2 weeks ago)
2:15-2:45 am: I always warm up with some basketball. I play my friend 1 on 1 for about 20 minutes then we do free throws (as a means to record progress). 15/20 shots made.
2:50-3:05: Did a hard run, medium distance tried to keep up a semi-fast pace, 2.3 miles.
3:10 Ė 4: Weight lifting. We just do 2 sets of 15 followed by 1 set of 12 for each muscle.
4:05 Ė 4:20: Core at this point, 225 crunches Ė in sets of 75. Then we do this thing that I donít know what itís called lol. Itís like a crunch but you turn on the way up.
8 am: I just got a new muy thai bag so I did like an hour on it. I donít have a set drill, I just throw combos, knees, kicks, whatever I feel like. . I do a bit of posting while doing this lol.
10 am: I hung a punch of baseballs by string and I use them for accuracy and avoidance. Works pretty well, there are better alternative if you have money but itís alright
I do sit ups between posts if I feel like it. Pretty much anything I do at home I do other things at the same time.
Started with a run today at about
12:30 - 12:55: Basketball as usual, I lost 1 vs 1 but I got 15/20 free throws so I stayed at my best.
1 am - 1:04 am: 12 mph for 1/2 mile. I can call it a sprint but I was just slacking off on the running.
1:05 - 2 approx: Weight lifting, identical to yesterday.
2:05 - 2:25: Core again, 200 crunches in sets of 100. I was sore so I stretched after this as a short cool down.
I was in the sauna to long so I felt a bit sick but i got over it once I drank water.
At home I did some more sit ups (100), pulls (40 over 4 times) and push ups only 20.
I also got about an hour of bag work and acurracy training so overall an ok day.
Nice log GMW. How old are you? And what are your goals?
I'll update this as the day goes along.
Weight: 177 lbs, gain of 2.
Approx 12:30 - 2:15 am I went to the gym.
12:30 - 12:50: Started with a routine game of basketball. I won 21 - 17. Then I made 18/20 free throws. Sweet.
12:55- 1:40: Weight lifting, identical to previous days except this time we maxed bench press. I didn't really want to but everyone seems to use it as a measure of overall strength (at school, not amongst the educated) so my friend wanted too. I got 200. WAY more then I expected considering 2 months ago I was only doing like 160.
1:45 - 1:50: Crunches, about 200 in 1 set. I noticed some people boxing in the free room, there technique was so bad I wanted to help them =( but I felt out of place.
Ten minutes of sauna then I went home.
If im able to today Im gonna order some Optimum 100% Whey Protein and buy Fish Oil. I'm to sure why I'd use Fish oil but I know it decreases violence in prisons so might as well.
I'm done for the day, I got about 2 hours of bag work in, in about 15 miute intervals. I did some push ups, sit ups and pull ups. Not a whole lot of push ups and sit ups but I did do about 70 pull ups (again, not at once)
I'm 16. I don't have definite goals. I want to get in shape, I do enjoy working out, self defense was always a bonus but not really neccessary. In the future I would like to compete at the professional level but not make a career out of it. Low level shows only.
10:30-11:00 approx: I ate breakfast, fried eggs, toast and mashed potatoes, then I did 20 minutes of heavy bag work. I don't feel that tired which means my cardio is getting better.
I worked my hardest ever in the gym.
1:00 - 1:06: I ran a mile in 6 minutes.
1:10 - 2:00 50 minutes of hard weight lifting. Skipped shoulders and quads because I hurt my shin.
2:00-2:20: Did a pretty good amount of crunches. It wasn't the most I'd ever done but I think it was the most tired I have been from them. 200/ 2 sets.
2:20-2:40 sauna. I did my stretching in the sauna today. I'm gonna be able to do 180 degree splits within a month I think.
I did about 3 hours of bag work through out the day. Something about a UFC event coming up made me want to do more haha. I'm really noticing a significant increase in my power, especially with my low right kick.
Overall, it was a pretty good day. I did great in the gym, did a lot of bag work, not so much push ups, pull ups and sit ups.
I woke up at 11 today.
I ate breakfast – eggs, toast and mashed potatoes – then I did stretching. This was unusual for me to stretch as I wake up and I found I was considerably less flexible so it was a good idea I think. I felt great after about 3 minutes.
10:30 – 11:30 approx.: Did a lot of heavy bag work. I worked on combinations such as inside low kick, jab right followed by jab, hook, uppercut, and several others. After I did my combination work I just threw straight hits and kicks to work on power.
11:35- 11:50: 5 pull ups -> 15 push ups -> 50 sit ups, I did it 4 times.
At about 2 my brother came over. He doesn’t really grapple any more but I did a little bit with him today. He used to train at City boxing in San Diego with Dean Lister so he is a very good grappler. Although Brandon Vera was there he was not lucky enough to really train with him too extensively. I don’t grapple enough so I get rusty and he helped me tune up my technique. We only grappled for about 30 minutes so as expected I couldn’t get a whole lot done.
My parents are out and I have a friend coming over so I'm skipping the gym. I'll do some bag work tonight along with push ups, pull ups and a run.
Off day today. 10 minute run outside, push ups, pull ups, sit ups, and an hour of bag work. I still eat the same though
