I went in today and helped run a kid's class from 5-6.
I hung around and worked with a kid tanner who's 10 years old who'll be fighting this saturday.

We sparred 4 three-minute rounds. I peppered him with jabs and stayed on the outside. I let him to a certain extent have all the fun inside.

I never would have any chance of going to his body due the height difference all of my low shots would've gone right into his head.

It was a good exercise moving around and just helping a team-mate.

After the 730 session was done 3 or 4 of us stayed and tore our ring down.

Friday we will be hauling it to a show about 2 hours away.

Hopefully we'll have the metalwork assembled Friday evening.

Jeff's wishes would be to have the final touches on the ring done by noon saturday, so we can relax until 6pm when the fun begins.

We've got tanner and ricky fighting for the team.

The fights went decent ricky got his fight and won via decision.

Tanner didn't get his fight.

I can't remember what the 2 sessions were like that I missed on here.

Day 43

So I got in at 4pm.

the 1st portion was mainly free due to no set structure. So I mainly worked on technique on the bags the entire time.
-------------------------------------------------------------
During the break between sessions I had. I tested my 1 set pushup max.

I had gone to 75 a little while ago, wasn't tired but my mind said it was good.

Well tonight I hit 120. I knew that was a goal of mine longstanding so when I hit 120 mentally it was good enough.

I got a little water, and then did as much as I could and got to 55. I don't know if i could do 175 straight? but I am probably going to shoot for 200 as my new goal to shatter.

So PT comes around, i've been doing 75 to their 20 pushups.

I upped it to 80 tonight. The only form I did 20 of was the spiderman. so in the end today I did 515 pushups!

I owe a lot of this to the fact I've been working on my back muscles.

I pretty much followed the same routine for session 2 as with the 1st half.

Day 44 last night.

I got in for a double sesion.

We were working 4-minute rounds after our PT for drilling.

I worked a lot on form for my jab, straight right, and hooks.

During the 2nd portion of the night I worked the same but halfway through I joined in with our mma side.

We've got a gym that is mma nearbye that wants to train in boxing since they don't have a coach that primarily focuses on that there.

So i got some kicking in. I am not sure what you'd call it...but I have been getting comfortable throwing a roundhouse from my lead foot without changing my base.

I threw some into a shield and noticed the guy wince a few times.

Swapped it up for a rear-leg thai roundhouse, and it was far more effective in power overall.

After that we worked on the thai push-kick.

To finish off I learned a static lead heel hook kick. As it is now if I'm in the orthodox stance this kick is worthless.

I was catching on my inner leg and it was preventing me from throwing the strike fluidly.

Now on my right side I was throwing it just fine.

Day 45
I went in at 5pm to assist the kids class.

I stuck around and did a few rounds of vigorus bag rounds then did a lot of deep stretching via yoga.

Man am I ever sore from it!

Day 46
Got in at 4pm.

got in 90 pushups a set today and the 100 abs.

after PT was done, we were lead through 30-second periods of single strikes on the bags for 3 rounds and 3 rounds of Circuit.
-------------------------------------------------------------
During the PT for session 2 I broke off and did a nasty circuit.

I had started with 3x75 hanging knees. I forgot about them when I'd started a 2 part cycle decline situps and dips.

I did 5 rounds of 25 situps, and 50 dips.

After getting through the situps and dips I relaxed with some stretching and called it a night. I was completely spent.

Day 47
I got in at 10 for an open gym.
I got 3 rounds of the circuit I was doing last night in today as a warmup.

30 decline situps, 25 pullups close-grip, 50 dips, and 50 hanging knees per set.

I worked with tanner for 3 rounds I think.

then worked on rapid jabs to gas out. I started with 50 and was doing them in 20 seconds...moved up to 60. And finished with 75 in 30 seconds.

I did 5 sets of each.

after that I stretched for a few rounds since I was nice and limber.

One of the stretches that's new is with the bob target, I'll set it to my head height. And then rest my ankle laterally on the shoulders in a standing split stretch. I'll hold the stretch for 2 minutes.

I figure this is good for the head kick.

I noticed I was able to strike two different points with my right high kick. I was throwing into the neck, and then tweaked it a little and was hitting the chin with my foot wrapping just behind the head.

Day 48
Money has started to come through unemployment.

Well I got in at 4, and we had a small group. I ran class through all of our rituals and then 1 round on a bag 4-minute round.

The drill was 30 seconds rapid jabs, no power just speed.. rest 30 then right hands rapid back and forth until the round was over.
------------------------------------------------------------

I am not sure when I asked our mma coach, but I have had some annoying impact pain when I throw heavy right uppercuts or straight rights into a bag.

He was thinking my fist is just not conditioned well enough currently to absorb the power I have in some of my strikes.

During my downtime between sessions I got a 45lb plate rested on my shoulders and did 40 pushups with it.

So for 2nd session I ran it again.

When we were done with the warmups, I worked on power striking. I didn't necessarily feel any pain so it may be a small percentage of the strikes I land that are just way too hard for me right now.

I am progressing in regards to overall conditioning.
I notice I am pushing myself to the point my core aches like crazy the next day.
I'm hardly content with doing what I had done the previous session, so right now there is no real boundary.
And I am finding that I've dropped some significant weight.

I believe I read 176.6 pounds tonight at the end of the night. Most nights I'm around 186.

Day 49
Got in a little late tonight, 4:15.

The setup is vastly different now. I wasn't able to do the circuit I've described that i've been running on.

I did 3 sets of 75 decline situps, and shadow work as warmups today.

got through PT. Then we did 30 seconds striking a medicine ball that a partner held at their chest.

We did this for 3 rounds, I was with 2 others. One would hold the entire round and we would have a rotation. Rapid strikes any form you wanted.

after that i worked bags for the remainder.

Got in 35 body+45lb pushups at the end.
-----------------------------------------------------------

Went into the small weight room and did quick sets of 50 declines x 8.

I am not positive, but I am pretty sure I am able to do 50 in a minute.

this was during the PT session above.

Worked on bags for the night. Vinny one of our coaches was critiquing my right uppercut.

A few months back brad had taught us a way to throw it: if you know what a slip then you've got a step up. So if you slip to the right come up with an uppercut and same with the left.

Well I guess Vinny sees my face wide open if I throw the uppercuts this way and was wanting me to throw from normal guard.

I talked with Jeff our head coach. Since i lost my job he's let me train in the gym and when I got income I'd just settle up.

Well the mma gym that is partners with us has moved into our facility. I had asked the MMA coach if he would have any issues with me training with them. Was told to chat with Jeff. So once I get Jeff $75 more dollars I'll start training MMA a few days a week.

I am not entirely sure how it will work out. I could go MMA tuesdays and thursdays possibly saturday.
