To start off today had a few setbacks. The person coming to fix my extra toilet did not come today and I was stuck waiting around for nothing. Also had a quite rough disagreement with someone I love dearly. I was very stressed out and unable to train for awhile until I was able to catch my breath and calm down. Once I did I realized how lucky I was. There may be fights that go on, but the loyalty and support than is shown is worth the occasional fight. When one day I accept my light weight pro card, my beautiful amazing girlfriend will be standing next to me. Once I calmed down I had one of the best workouts in a very long time.
Starting off with my Hung Gar stuff:
Did the warm up drills and was sure to keep myself relaxed and fluid for once in my life. Seemed to go move easy and good. The movement pattern is finally getting greased after all this time. Next I moved on to the dynamic tension exercises for this style. Those definitely wear a person out good. Next was blocks and stance drills. Finally work on the form I am doing.
Once that was done it was time to move onto the weighted workout. Today was what Bud Jeffries refers to as the yardstick conditioning day. This is the day where I test out how my conditioning is improving. This would be interesting to see because my food has been lowered since the last time I did this 2 weeks ago. I was operating on lower calories, lack of sleep from researching something on leucine last night, and finally do to the argument. I had the odds stacked against me. My last best was 200 swings with my 20lb KB alternating every 25 followed by a few minutes rest and 20 double 20lb KB clean and press.
300 swings alternating every 50 nonstop with a 1 minute rest and then 20 double 20lb KB clean and presses nonstop
Followed by my active cool down of stretching and thought relaxation.
Today was very good. Next shot is 500 swings thats the goal. If I can nail 500 swings I'll up the weight and get a 40lb KB and knock that out to. Super conditioning power right there. No contest will tire me out then. The goal on the C&P is 50 though I'll probably expect more of myself and go for 100. I need that insane conditioning boys and girls. You are only as strong as the weakest link and I will have no weak links.
