Healing

The healing process is coming along nicely I feel like I can work on just about anything I want to now, I Plan on giving myself till late-november though just to make sure things are good.

I've got two sparring partners I'm itching to work with now, I've maintained my core strength during the injury with situps along with some overhead pull-ups.

I definitely need to break-down and buy a pull-up bar rig for a doorway, it is definitely a pain going up stairs to work on the pull-ups.

I have given some thought to buying that perfect push-up contraption as well. I was working on some leather-work a while back and my friend who was helping me had one of them, it seemed nice when I did 5-push ups.

I will need to work on getting my cardio higher again, this means I'll be tossing on the 100-pound pack and going for early morning walks....even though they tear the shit out of your legs. I guess I am weak in my legs but given time I'll get some powerful legs once more!

To finish my desired list I would like to buy a military-grade pack that could hold up to 180 pounds of dead-weight.

I have a friend at work who is a retired army colonel, he was telling me when he served in the 10th mountain division they had a requirement of a 12-mile march that was to be done in under 3-hours with 60-pounds of total gear.

If I can pull off hauling 180-pounds on my body and doing the same I'll be well off I think haha!

Make sure your shoes/boots are good for a foot march. You'll be hating life pretty quickly if not.

Hey guys, I took a few more days of re-coup and started light-training last week until luck shined my way sunday morning.

I was helping a lady on a prep-day for this weekend's coming re-enactment and fell from about 6-foot. I was extremely lucky that I landed on my feet. I knew something was out of whack when the large left-toe was hurting.

Later on in the day I found out it was bleeding a little and was swelling up a little.

I tried going out to the bag yesterday and had some success it definitely hurt to spin on the left foot, but I got some work on the free-style boxing and some leg-strikes on the right-side.

I swear if I am not in pain something is wrong.....

Yesterday was good.... I worked on overhand pull-ups, an hour of bag-work, got in 5 sets of 50 situps and called it good for the day.

I've got some swelling on my right-shin from striking the bag...fairly painful but it goes down quick.

I bumped up my weight training yesterday, I ended up buying two 10-pound plates for my adjustable dumbbell.

Right now it holds 50-pounds.

I worked on some bag-routine yesterday earlier in the day and lifts and body work later in the day with several circuit drills.

I don't know what it is called when you do a reverse press to your chest from the ground with the dumbbell but it definitely felt good with the extra 20-pounds. Right now I can barely get a single rep in at a 50-pound single-handed curl which is a fact that will be disappearing fast.

Things are going well with my 20 pound increase to my 3-core lifts the curl, overhead press and bent over row. The 50 pound dumbbell is providing me with a fun challenge now haha!

I am depressed though....somehow I messed up my left leg again. I may have slipped into a mode where I have been stretching my right leg more than the left and it is catching up.

We will have to see if that is the case.

Last week I started to implement a new stretch into my regimen, that could be the culprit as well. You stand on one foot and balance yourself out and try and raise your free leg as high as you can while maintaining your balance and keep it there for at least 60 seconds or as long as desired.

I have felt the potency of the stretch in 15-seconds of holding it on my left-side compared to 5-seconds on the right.

I am loving the gains I am seeing with the increased weight.

I have been working on the three heavier lifts daily now, and I am pulling off 4 sets of 10 curls and overhead press and 4 sets of 20 bent-over rows as a workout circuit for the upper body.

It isn't getting any easier as I increase in strength, it just means that things will become more enjoyable as I Push through and shatter my minds grip on what is possible.

Hopefully things will look better for finances after I deal with all of my medical expenses and my tax returns come. I can definitely say I will be glad to retake a nursing course early in the spring so I can bring in some much needed income.

Today was a good day of training. I spent the day on tightening up my striking techniques with my hands and kicks.

I can say I definitely need to work on my shadow-striking game more often than I do currently. I have been getting some decent instruction from a friend of mine who is a retired amateur boxer. This guy was crazy in his day one of his best losses ended in his being knocked out, but he ended up throwing a monstrous hook to his opponent's jaw that cracked in in two different places.

He has been helping tighten up my right-hook which is feeling pretty damned nice. The biggest thing that was plaguing the right-hook was the fact that my elbow was dropping before impact. I have been told that if you keep your elbow around shoulder height you can produce vastly greater power in the strike.

Over the course of today, I spent an hour this morning and an hour this evening working on the shadow-strikes. I know people have told me it is one hell of a workout and I definitely know that to be damned true now. I want to focus on this for a few weeks now while I gain power in my upper-body at the same time working on those 50-pound lifts.

I have one issue when I throw the thai roundhouse when I'm shadow-striking....It sounds odd but I feel so comfortable when I can throw the strike into a bag but when I throw it into thin-air it feels completely un-natural. How do you combat that feeling? Is it a mental issue?

lol This is funny. I almost posted this the other day actually. I have a hard time with this too. I'm really not even that good at shadow boxing... just feels awkward... but the kicks are REALLY bad. I feel retarded even trying and it seems like no matter how hard I try, my form is all jacked up. But on a bag, its not bad. Idk.

Today, was excruciatingly painful after this morning's workout.

I decided to push myself past my normal build-up workouts with the 50-pound dumbell and ended up doing 10 sets of 10 curls and 5 sets of 20 bent over row as a warm-up routine.

from there I proceded on working on my shadow-striking and punch-endurance. I ended up doing sets of 50 left jabs and 50 straight rights for a total of 20-sets or a thousand punches. Apparently when I was finished with that I wasn't satisfied and went on and worked a simple three punch-combo set of left jab- left jab- straight right and mixed it up to right jab- right jab- straight left for 300 combos of each.

After throwing close to 2-thousand hand-strikes I was utterly exhausted. I could barely keep my hands held high.

One note to bear in mind was the fact that I was not wearing any gloves during the workout. If my biceps weren't hurting whenever I moved them I would be working on another night like that.
