Mon 6-28: kickboxing, typical jump rope/pushups/situps warmup, then partner light sparring drills, fun awesome and worked me hard and then I thought I was going to puke and had to stop 5 min early. What a b!tch.
Tue: Got suckered into TV shopping and didn't go to Shotokan. Fail.
Wed: karate (typical stretching/kick drill warmup, then kata) then MMA. MMA was jump rope, standup and ground bag work, then kneebars which was full of win. My partner was a little dude who referred to his "toothpick legs" and made me ROFL.
Thur: Judo. Could have been super awesome, as we worked on various holds including scarf hold and four-corner hold, but waaaayyyy too much talking and listening. I realize that there is an awful lot of theory in judo, but I have to work cardio conditioning if I'm to be expected to be worth anything in randori.
Fri: Shotokan, kicking drills, striking drills and kata. The class was stepped up just a little bit. I am cautiously optimistic that this may be the shape of things to come.
Sat: MMA combination class. The standup was pad work and jump rope/pushup/situp intervals, and the ground was armbars from S mount and then the top person stacks and the bottom person triangles. Then 32 min stepmill.

If you ever make it out to WA we so need to train! My trainers have yet to break me yet but they are trying and you could join in for a few sessions.

I don't know if I break in the conventional sense. I just say bad words under my breath. I'm still mad at myself for bitching out last night. There was one 5-minute break halfway through class, but no more than 15-30 seconds between sparring drills.

Because my partner had a lot of reach on me, I was trying to keep my distance and jump into the pocket to punch, like I think you're supposed to, and it ended up being very demanding. I like to move around a lot in drills like that anyway.

I don't lift a lot, but I need to do more upper body so I can do more pushups, especially since my teachers love knuckle, tricep and fingertip pushups, and I could always use stronger shoulders for grappling.

I suspect your trainers would be highly amused by my efforts.

In terms of conditioning and strength I have learned more than ever that core strength and leg strength play a huge roll in grappling.

Sunday: rested
Monday: rested. Extremely hot and humid both days.
Tue: 45 min elliptical; thank God for the air-conditioned gym. (Dojo not air-conditioned, sadly).
Wed: 1 hour kick shield and pad work with a bunch of jump rope intervals. F*cking hot in the dojo but a fun workout anyway.
Thur: rested
Fri: rested
Sat: Judo was a total fail for cardio since it was nage no kata. Then I got on the stepmill for 50 minutes. The heat made this past week pathetic for workouts.

Monday 7-12: Kick shield and various standup partner combination drills. One of my favorite kickboxing formats. I had a partner with heavy hands and feet, fortunately he has excellent control and was able to hit hard without blacking my eye. Maybe I'm just a super awesome padholder.
Tue: Shotokan, kick drills, kata (still the first 2) and dynamic partner sparring drills.
Wed: Goshinjitsu (an unusual amount of stretching, kick drills, then basic block/strike/punch drills which was great, and we hardly ever do these basics classes, and IDK why) then MMA standup. I had one of my favorite partners. At one point I got taken down and then run over by two dudes in the process of a takedown LMAOOOO!!
Thur: rested
Fri: 40 min elliptical, 10 min total bag drills
Sat & Sun: rested like a piggeh

Looks like some awesome kickboxing drills! I am still sore from stand up sparring this last Friday! Took a good kick and some body hits to the ribs from a heavy handed and footed opponent! Wanted to add Rep but wont let me give you anymore right now :P

Mon 7-19: jump rope/pushups/situps, then kick shield drills, then partner pad work. I had a heavy handed, heavy footed partner wherein I just wanted to do my best to be a worthy padholder. He was very patient and helpful, and I hope didn't go light on me, although he did pull his punches a little bit.
Tue: Shotokan, then kata class. (goshinjitsu)
Wed: MMA. It was all ground. We drilled about 5 guard breaks and 4 mount escapes. I don't know the names for any of them, b/c our teacher never tells us. Suffice it to say that they were all simple and effective, and I wish we drilled them more often.
Thur: Judo. The usual warmup and uchikomi, then we drilled morote seioi nage and tae o toshi. LOVED. After class I drilled the throw I'm bad at, ippon seioi nage, and the techniques I love (osoto gari, de ashi barai) with another white belt who's probably going to test at the same time as me, next month. I've hardly been at my running gym, however (the one with A/C). I might have to miss some classes at my dojo so I can run more regularly.
Fri:rested
Sat: This was the MMA standup cardio that I was looking for on Wednesday. For the first time in memory, the class was all women and we were talking away through the jump rope (probably 5 or 6 3-4 min intervals) situps, planks, pushups, mad bag drills, and kick shield drills. My legs hurt like a mofo now, but it was so much fun. Judo is in a different part of the same large room, and I could see they were doing exactly the same thing we did on Thursday. I always need to work on everything I'm doing in judo, but I needed the standup cardio badly.

I hate it when I have to reduce power on my kicks which should only be about 50-70% to a kick shield anyways. Should only go full strength to a heavy bag just like punches! Focus mitts and kick shields are speed and form more so than power always :P But anyways its never a bad thing having to brace yourself more to hold the shield for hard kicks. It sometimes turns into decent body conditioning for taking blows :P

Then I'm getting mad conditioning, because most of my partners kick me across the floor!
