    Default Fresh Meat In The Grinder

    Name: Matthew
    Sex: Male
    Age: 27
    Weight: 203llbs
    Height: 5'9

    Background: Early years I ran for my high school athletics club for the last two years at competition level. In my own time I played a lot of football (soccer), Thai boxing, skateboarding, surfing and trampolining. I became a fitness instructor/class instructor but after a motorbike accident I tore my ACL and lost a lot of my gains.

    Returned to fitness as a gym manager after selling cars for a while and have been on and off boxing for 18 months (mainly for fitness), got a rear molar tooth knocked loose and got a abscess which hospitalised me about 9 months ago but carried on then stopped 3 months ago. I have returned this week. Got from 216llb to 203llb the last 6 months and still dropping.

    Monday 30th

    In the gym. Felt groggy, not been eating correct since christmas.

    Warm up on treadmill > 6 x 30/30sec hill sprints at 12km/h BPM was average 150/180 per sprint, little bit higher numbers by 5th and 6th sprint

    followed by squats 3 x 20. first set @ 20kg > second set @ 10 kg > third set bodyweight

    Swim - 15 lenghts front crawl

    I felt tired, short of breath and was hitting anaerobic fast and struggling to control my breathing. Just felt like a wimp and unfit.

    Monday 6th

    Bit different today. A friend took me to his kung-fu class. hes been doing it years and says there are aspects that will help with boxing. I told the teacher that i respect all discplines but want to get into boxing as a sport and win matchs. He has advised me on a technique called splashing hands aswell as others. I have to admit i enjoyed the class and alot of the technique and fundamentels i can see coming accross. he even brought up jack dempsey and said how parts of kung-fu are actually involved in boxing.

    90 mins of various kung-fu techniques, strikes and blocks

    Thursday 16th - 11.00am - 1 hour - boxing coach

    Mistake doing my shoulders yesterday.

    circuit with resistance bands on my shoulders, then footwork with a resistance band tied round my feet, moving and punching keeping the tension on the band to keep my feet apart because i bring them too close together.

    felt the best i have yet and my trainer said i defo had moved up a peg. getting much more physical, bloking attacks, learning combos with a slip.

    and i wasnt sick this time!!
