Training : I couldn’t make my AM weight session. My lower back/SI was brutal. So i rested it. I had a 1 hr massage with Lesley Young today which really helped.
4-5 More circuits. Upped it to 5 – 5 min rounds today. Lots of variety of exercises. Kettlebells, bar work, kicking, plyo jumping, medicine ball throws. I wish I had my camera today to get some video of the circuits are they were awesome.
815-945 Kickboxing class. We worked a lot on inside fighting, closing the distance, working on defense & turtle defense. I did about 8-10 rounds. Cardio felt great and is really coming around.
My back was hurting a bit but after warming up I didn’t notice it much. My left bicep starting hurting towards the end, I had surgery on my bicep 3 years ago. More on that later.
Nutrition & Supplements : I had another good day of eating clean and moderatly low carb. Steak, chicken, salads, fish oil.
Supplements were BCAA, Myoplex, NO Xplode (I love this pre workout, doesnt drive the heart rate up but gives me fantastic workouts).
I added some cool training equipment to Bushido today for our training for MMA & also for use with my clients, I had some Plyometric Boxes built today for Bushido and they are fantastic for adding into workouts for speed and power.
Overall : I had a great day training. Had 2 solid workouts, worked through an injury but I got my workouts in and that is all tha matters right now. My cardio is improving and I feel much better overall.
What I learned today? : That even if your tired, sore, you can always get some sort of workout in. Once you get moving the pain usually goes away. Reasons not to train most times are just excuses not to train.
