I know I don't box but I love the site and use it for all the training tips, hope no one minds too much! Thought this would be particularly useful to help keep track of how much exercise I'm doing and maybe get some feedback, also will probably use it as a kinna food diary to help me work out where I'm going wrong. I do not train every day so I will post every now and then. Have a history of muscular back pain.
Friday: taekwondo class 5.30-8pm
Warm up: jogged around hall ten mins, stick work - knees up sprint over ten sticks, bunny hops over ten medium hurdles,stretching.
Done a really tough circut including:
2o reps x Large medicine ball, throwing up in air, catching and setting on floor and doing a sprawl on it, then lifting and throwing again
20reps x Small medicine ball, using waist and hips to throw against wall and catching, change sides and repeat
20reps x holding 2 10kg dumbells in hands whilst stepping up and down on a chair
20reps x heavy bag lying on floor, jump over and hold it in a side mount, change sides repeatedly
20reps x bunny hopping over 10 medium hurdles and jogging back to start
20reps x press ups on chairs to get right down
20reps x 8chairs in a row, kicking leg up and down over each chair
Very creative circuit I know
Sparring with pads, lots of leg work working on technique and making good head height. Positivly sweating by end of class.
Came home and made a thai curry (approx600cals)
taekwondo seminar with over seas coaches - technical class rather than fitness but hard work none the less.
Food: Breakfast: crunchy nut cereal bar (170cals)
no lunch due to training class
Dinner:strawberries, chicken supreme and rice (small portion)
1 slice takeaway pizza and diet coke (i know it was bad)
Woke up in so much back pain it was almost unbearable. Cant understand why, unless it was delayed from fridays workout or from yesterdays technical class which would be surprising. If it was delayed, it is most likely from press ups on the chairs, done 20 solid ones which i was pleased with, when i first started I had to do them on my knees!
Food Breakfast: Special K and milk
no lunch due to late breakfast
Dinner: rump steak casserole, 2 potatoes, diet coke
So far lost 1 kilo from last wed, am considering special k challange but am afraid it wont fill me up enough. HATE being hungry.
