I was able to test out some new grappling gloves today.

I ordered a pair of Combat Sports Supersleek training gloves from midwestfightshop.com saturday night for $26 after a few discounts and was impressed with the lining on the interior.

It has a nice lining a soft-one, I didn't expect that so I'm happy with that. There is a nice double strap wrap that has opposite directions.

I tested them out on my bag today and felt the sensation of my strikes in my arms not so much my hands. I think this is due to the padding the gloves have and the fact my knuckles are so de-sensatized to pain.

I got a decent body-weight circuit and some light yoga in today.

I worked on lunges, dips and the divebomber pushup.

10 each leg x 2, 10 dips, 10 divebombs per cycle and moved to 15 x 2, 10, 10, then to 20 x 2,10,10.

After this I worked on a light session of yoga: butterfly, side splits, a modified stretch to work on gaining an entry into the chinese split, leg vertical raises into momentum raises to roll on my shoulders, shoulder drop rolls.

I don't know if it is possible but I plan to try and incorporate the shoulder drop rolls into my bjj game.

Today has been profitable, tommorow and the next day will leave me in pain though.

I have done my circuit drills at 140 pounds with 6 cycles of 6 lifts each: overhead press, lunge,squat, dual arm curl.

I timed my cycles today at 2 minutes each. I am not sure if this is fast nor slow. I started at a resting pulse and have a fairly drenched long sleeve shirt.

I found that the pasta has helped with my overall calorie intake and has helped slightly with the cramping. Once I get a little more income I'll start buying a flat of the cans at a time. I figure I could eat at least 3 daily and I'd have about a quarter of what I need for my calories and carbs. With the potassium levels at 4-6 grams I would be able to maintain a good level to prevent any cramps and it would help with promoting a cleaner body.

I found a nice cardio drill by experimenting this morning.

I'm sure you can do this on a better setup than I used but here it is:

Catchers squat is the pose you start in and you grasp a bar (my bench-bar with 140 pounds) and shoot your feet all the way to the rear as your feet hit the ground you thrust back to the catchers squat.

The other workout was starting from the catchers squat and you throw one hip under you so in example your right leg will be perpendicular to the bar with your left leg staggered slightly in a 90-degree angle to the bar.

From there all you do is keep throwing the opposite hip under.

I am not really certain what these two random excersizes work on but it gets my heart pumping quick.

Deadlift finally conquered

I had reservations about the dead lift for the longest time until I got some assistance from a friend at work who lifts heavily.

I got home and worked on the lift and found it was extremely easy to pound out 10 lifts of 140 pounds. I did notice a little raise in my heart rate so I plan on tossing this into my power circuit now.

Rest

I am battling a nasty barrage from illness right now.
Migranes, near complete nasal blockage, and dizyness when I workout.

I'm heading to the doctors today to get some relief and I plan to rest until wednesday, If things go well I hope to resume full power drills on my bag then.

sorry

Hey guys sorry for the lapse in updating my training.

I've been working on my conditioning since I won't be heading back to the gym for some time.

I have been working on a new body-weight circuit.

I didn't realize it when I did it but I altered two exercises I didn't know much about.

I start in the catchers squat and hold onto my bench bar which has blocks in front and the rear so it won't move.

From there I've thrown my feet back like you would for a burpee then thrust back into the squat position.

The other is like a sitout but you hold onto the bar one hip hits the floor then you bounce up and throw the other hip under.

I've been doing 20/10/5 5 being dips at bodyweight 176 pounds.

I've been doing 2 sets of 20 thrusts and 10 dips before work for the last 10 or so days.

Today I did 6 sets of 20/5 of the thrust dip exercise and just finished up a set of 10 two minute rounds led by bas rutten's cardio boxing.

I want to know how to throw with power after exhausting my arms...I feel like crap throwing only for technique after round 6 or so..

Pain!

I woke up this morning and had a hell of a time getting out of bed, next to every muscle in my upper torso is sore to move.

I am happy to see the results of a 45 minute punch drill and the new body-weight circuit.

When I recover hopefully by wednesday I'll add the thrust and dip circuit into the boxing drills as a cool down maybe.

I am happy to be relatively pain-free today.

I worked on lunge drills during my upper body recovery-period.

I am making slow progress on my bag-work, but it is progress!
I worked on some new things tonight:
1. A quick change of stance from the orthodox to UN-orthadox stance to fire off a rear left foot body kick with a roundhouse.
2. A combo starting with a stepping reverse punch left elbow as you drive into the opponent then a heavy right elbow.

The quick change of stance felt better than trying to fire off a lead roundhouse with my left in respect to technique and how I was balanced. The added bonus was I heard the difference as well in the power it packed.

The 2nd new toy was more of a working idea than a full fledged attempt to tear the bag open. I opened with a quick 3 strike combo jab, right, jab, transition the right hand into the chamber position for the reverse punch then step forwards off the left foot my lead and strike the chest. As my momentum carried me I tended to drift left a little to the left side so I added in a left elbow followed by a right.

I figure if I were coming from the opposite stance I could fire a quick right, jab, right, left reverse punch, right and left elbow. Didn't test that one out.

I am taking it slower this time around with re-conditioning my shins after injuring the right. I can get 30 or 40 vicious kicks in from either leg before I call it a night right now.

Fire

I can't be certain where the fire that drove me this morning came from but I loved the results.

I did a heavy deadlift and dual-arm curl cycle session.
30,25,20,15,10, & 5 for the deadlift at 140 pounds and 10 sets of 9 dual arm curls at 140.
