A little background info: I've always been kind of a wannabe mma fighter in the sense that I watch every UFC event and am a huge fan of combative sports, I always wanted to train but my high school didn't have a wrestling team and there are no mma gyms in my town. I like contact sports, I started playing rugby in HS and have been looking for new challenges ever since. In the last year I walked on to my University wrestling team and joined the only thai gym in my area, and it's been amazing. I finished the University season with a 2-5 record and won some medals at local tournaments in my town. I'm a hard worker and I love muay thai and wrestling, so I thought i'd document my training and try to stick to this log.
Today I went to open training at my thai gym. I'm currently writing exams so this is the first time I had been to thai in a few days, I felt really fresh and energetic. I did:
-one 20-minute bag round, throwing different combos and getting the body warmed up
Then I did some pad work, 3 minute rounds of:
-cross, hook, kick
-jab, hook, kick
-jab, hook, skip left kick
-jab, cross, lead elbow, skip knee
-lead push, superman punch, rear push, kick
Then I finished up with 50 kicks and 50 skip kicks on the bag, my left kicks are **** so I make a point to throw as many as possible whenever I get a chance to hit the bag. They feel stronger now than before.
It was so warm on the drive home that I decided to go for a jog, i've been meaning to work some low intensity cardio into my training so I just went on a 15 minute jog. Was really easy but my heels hurt like a bitch from the impact, i'm gonna do the same thing on tuesday and thursday and then ramp up the intensity next week.
