  2. Inversion table is better than band hanging IMO.

  3. Another vote for hanging from a band. First thing Super D did when he came out on to the gym floor today. Hell, I gained stance width after being coached through it today.

  4. Thinking about getting back into boxing (although, probably not too hard core.) I always enjoyed it, and who here couldn't benefit from being better conditioned.


    Also, non workout related. Debating the pros and cons of switching the bed on the C10 to a stepside (I like the look better, but it ain't cheap). Trying to decide how much I want to do to it, as far as modifications go. I'm thinking about lifting it some, although probably not much (or OG suspension with the big rear wheels and smaller fronts, I always liked how that looked) Trying to decide if I want to have power steering/brakes put on it, doubt I'll do A/C but its possible.

    Any opinions from you ****nuggets? (Referring to both topics here)

  5. Can't help on the second part, but I vote yes on the boxing. It's good cardio and my shoulders always felt great when I was sparring regularly.

    I miss doing it, its been a long time though. Since my dad was still alive (he was a golden glove boxer back when he was in the military).

    It was always fun (more so than the MMA was, I don't care for kicking or grappling really).

    Trying to decide if I want to go to a boxing gym or just train on my own again....

    I'd start on your own with basic footwork and combo drills. It'll help to reestablish your base and get your cardio started. Shadow boxing is very underrated for cardio.

  8. I agree with starting on your own at first. Getting your hands and feet to move together again takes time. But, eventually you have to get the sparring work in. Get used to breathing with a mouthpiece in again.

    Offense/defense drills were the capstone of our gym. You throw a lot more punches that way than sparring and it's great practice to build yourself up again. I was the only white kid in an inner city gym, they were fast. I had to learn to block quick.

    It's unreal the caliber of fighters I've seen come out of that gym.

    Breathing with a mouthpiece isn't an issue since I usually train and compete with one.

    The rest of what you said though.....lol.

    You're lucky man. I struggled breathing properly at first. I saw a pro get his jaw broke by an amateur for breathing with an open mouth and I changed that real fast.

    You'll be good man, you have a base. Keep practicing and when you're ready find a gym with a good coach. It is amazing cardio, best shape of my life.

    Was gonna try to squat and **** today but couldn't even get 1/4 of the way down with an empty barbell without being in a significant amount of pain.

  22. Benched yesterday, squatted and dead lifted today.

    Real low volume, beltless.

    Had some pain at 135 for the squats, just did singles on everything up to that. Close to depth, but a little high on most reps. Went as far down as possible without too much pain.

    Deadlifted 135 beltless for some singles with only some slight pressure, no real pain. Didn't go heavier.

  23. Nice man, build it back up slow. Must have at least felt good to get your hands on a barbell and get lower body movements in.
