Hot outside...

It has been a long time since I have posted an update. I had been training for a 3:00 x3 round boxing match I originally thought would happen in March 2011. It kept getting pushed back and I ended up getting hurt in training. When I was finally healthy my opponent hurt himself. I slacked off for a bit on diet after that and have recently been getting back into it.

My schedule these days looks like:

Monday
3x3:00 jump rope
1h boxing skills with Bruno

Tues
0:35 boxing skills and/or a Bruno jog with 2x hill repeats
1h conditioning training w/Charles

Wed
1h30 pro-training class (0:30 cardio, 1h kickboxing)

Thurs
0:35 boxing skills and/or a Bruno jog with 2x hill repeats
1h conditioning training w/Charles

Friday
0:30 focus mitts with Hank
3mi jog or boot camp class w/Charles

Saturday
3x3:00 rounds jump rope
1h boxing skills w/Bruno

Sunday
open day, varies between weights (dead, squat, bench), 10mi jog, rest, etc...

Conditioning w/Charles consists of movements to simulate fighting stress. When we do weights everything is to failure (with spotting). Body weight exercises are either w/weighted vest or whatever it takes to get to failure quicker. Normally these run in a circuit, from last Tuesday (6/21/2011):

6:00 round (repeat for 3 rounds)

4 left leg round kicks to focus mitt
4 right leg round kicks to focus mitt
8 burpees
repeat for 2:00 without stopping

8 chest stomps (like a front kick but hitting with whole foot) to chest pad
8 squat jumps
repeat for 2:00 without stopping

8 alternating leg round kicks to focus mitt
8 jumping lunges
repeat for 2:00 without stopping

additional conditioning

squat press with 2x35 dumbbells 2:00

place 1x35 dumbbell at each end of a city block, squat press with right hand on one end, left hand on the other 12 reps, sprint to other weight, 2:00 round x3
