Welcome to my training page. Im doing this mainly to keep a record of what iv done through the year and hopefully years to come. So i know where im up to and what works and what doesnt! Also going to post any relevant info i come across. Im a novice and Im far from an expert but i hope one day to become qualified and be an expert in the mean time hope it helps people.
I welcome all Questions, this isnt about being right or wrong so i also welcome any debate or disagreements!
Yesterday i got in the gym and did pure conditioning. I wasnt feeling the energy after being off due to a cold last week. But i went through the motions and feel better for it today!
Every second minute for 20 minutes (10 rounds) no break between exercises start the routine every 2 minutes
Kettle Bell 12.5 kg
one minute on each
Just repeated 3 times today
3 x 3 minute rounds (KILLER)
And that was it i did some more skipping . last couple days iv taken it easy but i must remember good quality core work and flexibility at the end of sessions and not neglect it!
Just a quick type up today , went to the gym like i said in previous post backing off the strength work for a week and going for aerobic/ anaerobic conditioning and muscular endurance work. It was tough but felt good , it was based on a workout i used to do too often but is still a great workout.
think that was everything pretty much 100 of everything except chin ups. Not exactly complicated but iv found it effective for increasing my muscular endurance. Iv got boxing tomorrow and possible thursday so will do a circuit wednesday and another conditioning day on friday but that will probably be more anaerobic work and intervals
Thanks for reading
Bye for now
Today after work i hit the weights for a bit of max strength. I increased my weights on a couple of things so am happy!
*farmers walk set distance unknown but will use same distance each time. Completed 4 lengths, 3 lengths,2 and 1 with roughly 1 minute rest in-between.
60 reps each of
Tonight was awesome. I went hell for leather straight away and started fading before the half way mark! It took alot of mental focus to come back and i eventually got my second wind after thinking i was going to throw up! Really good and still buzzing from it!
Unfortunately its the last bootcamp for the forseeable :-( i can do the same stuff and i train as hard as i can but theres nothing like having someone else pushing you to your limit, with the best intentions in the world you cant push yourself to breaking point! For me having someone pushing me and showing them they can’t break me gets me that extra % 1 and thats all the difference!
Im going to roughly write up what bootcamp involved tonight as i dont normally but its the last one so id like people to know what it involves. Its nothing magical its just like i said the environment that pushes you that bit harder!
All OF IT IS NON-STOP NO BREAKS!!!
It changes week to week and its a great class i cant wait until its back and will endeavour to keep the same intensity in my workouts!
Im determined to get back to boxing tomorrow so its another time of the week ill be being pushed to my limits! I really want to use my training for a purpose and that means a fight! Its just work getting in the way. Im a strong believer in you can play football , rugby ect…. YOU CAN’T play at boxing. So if i cant train multiple times a week and give it my all then i wont step into the ring for the hell of it!
Anyway sorry for the lengthy post
off today! means gym time later :-) explosive lifting and might do some sort of conditioning, maybe bag work or pads if iv got someone to hold them for me.
want to try some new stuff for explosive training
anyone got any advice or links to olympic lifting?
I was really happy with todays work considering i was and still am a little bit hungover! But i managed to get through it and even excel today in some bits! Definitely can feel my conditioning coming back and my fitness getting back to where it was hopefully with no distractions now i will be able to build on it!
Anyway ill keep it short this is what happened!
Iv started recording times and reps on everything as i want to start improving everything rather than just going through the motions!
head hurts too much alcohol last night! Owel its nice to have a life outside of training and it was fantastic to see an old mate again. Will be training much later i think spending the day re hydrating and getting some calories in!
Yesterdays strength session felt really good. It was based heavily on ross trainings stuff. Couple of stuff modified for me due to either lack of equipment or lacking in strength.
Did a light warm up with some body weight exercises some chin ups and push ups then did the following work out
Iv come across this on a boxing forum i go on. Its from Joe Defrancos Page. I havnt tried this yet as you do need a foam roller really but im going to pick one up. It sounds awesome for improving flexibility / mobility and injury prevention. I like it rather than being one long stretching class its short mini workouts you can do each day to improve your mobility and flexibility. Anything would be an improvement for me at the moment and hopefully i will be able to take this and expand on it in the coming months!…..Unfortunatly i couldnt get the videos to be shown on the screen but the links are there and working hope it helps!
Tonight was another good session for bootcamp. Once again that time of the week where i get pushed to the limit! Like iv said before this is invaluable because as hard as i like to train theres nothing like being pushed by an experienced trainer. I recommend everyone does at least once a week with a trainer of some description and i guarantee you will work harder then than at any other time. There’s nothing quite like it!
It wasnt easy tonight (obviously thats the point). But i found myself sagging energy wise and im not sure why! Physically i should be fine. I think i might have over ate at about 4.45 and it hadnt digested properly. I definitely drank enough water through the day. Maybe it was more intense than i realised at the time. It was a pretty tough session. It might have also been mental although admittedly i felt fine warming up and ready to work.
Dont want to over train but i might throw in an extra GPP (General Physical Preparedness) workout on one of the strength days.
But ill see might have just been an off night.
Anyway going to get a cuppa and an early night, like to get 9-10 hours when im training.
Customizing my skipping rope like its my weapon of choice… id like to say its due to a secret training technique… but its due to not being able to afford a new one ! Oh yeh how cool am i?
