Calm down there's no reason for this sort of reply Halloway.

I only use machines to supplement my lifting regiment.

If you want to help don't start by cussing.

Oh Joy

Saturday night I was practicing the roundhouse on some wood floors and lost my balance.

I fell straight forward after rotating 360 degrees and landed with my right knee and right palm first.

I have a fair bit of pain in the wrist, but it is bearable...at least this injury isn't as bad as the one I occurred with the dual armed curl so many months ago.

I can say for certain it doesn't hurt to do shadow drills with kicks or punches, so this is a blessing.

a push-up doesn't strain the wrist if I do the fist push-ups.

I have been working on my cardio again, I am doing body weight exercises:

100 squats, 100 calf raises, 25 or 50 lunges and 25-50 push-ups in a cycle.

Depending upon what's wrong with the wrist, it might help to ease into some light grip exercises. Especially ones that recruit some mobility in the wrist like wrist curls or reverse wrist curls. That'll help get some blood flowing to it and maybe stretch it out. Might ease the pain and/or help with recovery. (Not a doctor or anything, so carry on at your own risk.)

What's the purpose of the calf raises you do? Anything in particular or just an extra movement you threw in?

Call me crazy but I am under the impression that when you go to throw the Thai Roundhouse you are doing a rotating calf-raise.

I figure if I am stretching the calf with the high-count set and increasing the power in the calf it could lead to a slightly more powerful kick.

I am happy that you made a reply here North, I see so many views but very little conjecture. Thank you for the advice on the wrist.

Cardio Session

Went for a cardio-session tonight.
--------------------------------------------------------------
To make the cardio work we did even worse I went on a 6-mile run about 6 hours prior to the gym.

We met up at the gym and ran 4-6 blocks to the track, where we warmed up by running 4 miles, light jog, increased pace, light jog, increased pace.

We wore our wrap and boxing gloves during the run.
--------------------------------------------------------------
After warming up we worked on 3 cycles of 5 3-minute rounds:
jumps left/right & back/forth, punch-mit, vertical knee rise jumps, medicine ball work (side to side throws), and quad hits to the chest.
------------------------------------------------------------
After we went through those cycles 3 times we ran for another 2 miles, then it was back to the gym for focus pad drills.
------------------------------------------------------------
We worked on 3 minute rounds for 12 rounds. I was destroyed by the time we got to round 9.

I heard the instructor saying that they've got a cd for punch-drills that I"ll look into picking up so, I can do several punch-drills daily.

Rough Week Ahead

I like how Illmatic has made his goals for the week.

Right now I'd say I want to get through something like this for the week:
*Cardio session on monday and tuesday.
*Run with the dog for 6-8 miles both monday and tuesday.
*do a full bodyweight circuit after the runs.
*recover from the cardio sessions by working wednesday through friday
*Saturday cardio session on my own (the gym offers a boxing drill cd) "I plan on asking for one for my own use" same as Monday and Tuesday.

For the time being there is no technique drilling at the gym, the head instructor is out due to some illness. We have a cardio-coach there, so I figure why not go for that.

The boxing padwork and thai boxing should help me with my stand-up technique I think.

On a side note, I met up with my friend from work who gave me that nice punching bag last night to look at a bench/ lateral pull-down/ leg extension bench. He's got roughly 80 pounds of free weights and the bench which he's willing to sell for $100.

I'll have close to 160 pounds of free weight now!

New Equipment

I have been lucky this week,

I have two guys wanting to get rid of some stuff who I work with:

One wants to give me a bench-press with a adjustable elevation and 125 pounds of free weights.

He's asking for $85 for the deal.

The other is a widner double seat machine that has a short stack of 250-pounds and a tall stack of 350-400 pounds.

All I have to do is take this off the guy's hands at no cost.

Cardio Session

Hey Guys I hit the gym hard tonight!

Went in at 6 and found out there was no technique, so I went to the track nearby and ran from 6:15 to 7:30. I didn't go overboard, just a slow jog.

I was running a 10 or 12 minute mile I think, this is slow for me.
-----------------------------------------------------------
After the run we did punch drills with a focus on thai boxing:

I love how my coache's wife who instructs this portion will not hesitate to strike me. She's just as vicious as my main instructor.

For some reason I was out of posture with my feet, so she was chopping away at my lead foot with short choppy kicks.

We ended up doing twelve 3-minute rounds.
-----------------------------------------------------------
After the striking drills we worked on a punch ladder.

I was impressed I hit a new record tonight I did a ladder from 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1! I ended up miss-counting and did 10-10-10. this was from 8.
-----------------------------------------------------------
It was great tonight the guys were showing me the reasoning behind a few things. I'll be heading back tomorrow for more enlightenment!

Forgot to write

Hey Guys, since Tuesday I have been dead-silent.

Tuesday I had a lovely day...first my engine wouldn't roll over there was no sound, so I borrowed mom's car to get to the gym for a cardio session.
--------------------------------------------------------------

I had a friend from work come with me about 40-45 minutes early to warm up with me for the class we jogged at a 12-minute mile pace for 2 miles on a track. After the I walked him through a stretching routine.

Tim my partner for the night had no idea how to stretch or anything so I'm teaching him all I know to make me better.

After our stretching I ran him through a light conditioning program to see how he could hold up:

we did 3 sets of 10's (standing situps,crunches and side bends and burpees).

After the light conditioning I showed him how to do an armbar from the butterfly guard. I had some difficulty demonstrating the technique on him due to his ungodly long legs.
-----------------------------------------------------------
This brings a good topic up for quizzing my coach when I see him next for a technique night: "how do you pass the opponent's butterfly guard when their legs are vastly longer than yours, and how to do it just as rapidly as doing it on an opponent who doesn't have 4-7 inches of height on you"
------------------------------------------------------------
After this we went to the gym and found out the session was going to take place at the instructor's home, knowing me I didn't have my gps unit...I didn't think to snag it before I hopped in mom's car so there was no way to the instructor's home.
------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday - day of rest

------------------------------------------------------------
Today : I have been anticipating the arrival of my utility weight bench for a few weeks now. I finally had time off when my co-worker who was selling the bench today. It took me nearly 4 hours to clear out the room I am going to use as my weight-lifting room.

I got a Weider bench w/ leg attachement, preacher rest (padded), and a lat pull down. I believe about 100-pounds of free weights came with the package I bought along with 3 single handed curl bars and what I think is a french curl bar...(there's a rectangle of circular steel and two hand posts on the inside of it). The friend also tossed in some gold's gym weight lifting gloves that have a nice amount of wrist wrap, all told it was $50.
------------------------------------------------------------
The friend who helped me with the bench has agreed to help me load a Weider 9400 double-seated all-in-one lifting machine sometime next week. I am getting this toy free of charge from my asst. manager in the department I work in.

The machine has two stations of course... a short stack of 200-pounds and a tall of 400.
------------------------------------------------------------
My instructor told me about a deal he wants to give me on a Smith Machine along with 300 pounds of free weights. He'll give it for $100, all I have to do is find a way to get my dad's truck for a night and load it up.

I may be able to take care of installing that machine a week after next.

I love how things are falling into place, I have never enjoyed lifting in a gym-setting because I am a person who does things very erratically and on "My Time". So having the ability to install a home-gym is very beneficial for me seeing as how it has been a $150 investment!
------------------------------------------------------------
I went to the gym and no-one was present so I had some dinner from a grocery store, a small fresh baked loaf of bread and some summer sausage.

I played around with a small exercise after getting home:
3x 10 one-hundred pound lat pull downs.
3x 6 0ne-hundred pound bench press.
------------------------------------------------------------
I may have the opportunity for a cardio session on saturday, but I'm not sure yet.
