    We do what we call 7 Ups. You do them with a partner (or more) Person #1 runs the length of the gym and back. (we run the width of the basketball court) Then person #2 runs down and back. Then #1 does 3, then #2 does #3. Then 5 then 7 then 5 then 3 then 1. So you are recovering while they are running.

    I like running the stairs we usually do 3 minute rounds on the stairs mixed in with the other conditioning. They really work the legs and it gets your heart rate up, you should try them.

    Yea i've seen people run them at the hockey rink, stairs. I'm guessing it would help build the legs. Leg strengthening is something I want to work into my next routine.

    If it's any consolation I slacked last week and am officially calling it a week off (with 2 workout days). Didn't have a good excuse like you either.

    Easier to bust someone else's chops tho.

    I went to another gym this evening because my coach is out of town for a couple of weeks.

    We worked on some new tools on the mitts and sparred 7 rounds.
    Even though I train a lot, the sparring I get really sucks and it shows. It's hard to practice the skills you have with people who aren't close to you level. In a lot of ways I think it's worse than not sparring at all.
    I'm hoping to get back up there a few more times in the next two weeks. The sparring is a good as I could ask for, really challenging and I get a lot of feedback on stuff I need to work on.

    Ok, heading to the gym now. I'm going to work on my footwork, which is in need of some major work right now. I have a bad habit of standing there and slugging.
    Since I'm on my own I think I'll just work on some shadowboxing and plyometric stuff for my footwork.

    Well I tend to get really flat footed and not move laterally very much. So I'm doing a lot of moving around quickly and changing directions, pivots. As fast as I can. I'm not necessarily throwing any punches just in my stance and visualizing my opponent and trying to get angles, or cut off the ring.

    I'm the exact opposite. I tend to bounce around too much. As a result sometimes my feet end up close together, and that isa recipe for disaster.

    Crap! I just discovered the arcade section of this forum. This could impede my progress.
