had 2 wanks and a nap.
probably walked about 4km up and down hills. too hot to be outside right now though. lots of moving boxes and packing things.
Gods, I was just about to list my cock pulling, but Hawkman beat me to it.
2 wanks? I don't believe you could get it up that many times per day.
Come on guys, don't lie about your workouts!
youd be surprised how well it works mate.
ive been doing some shoulder work to try and correct my kyphotic posture and loosen up my rotator cuff and pectorals. also foam roller.
Ran 3km, took 20 minutes. The beach was in high tide and the sand was so soft my feet felt like they were running over quick sand. My calves = Farkkkk!
Quick lunchtime workout:
5x Dumbell Snatch
15 russian twist per side w/ 25lb plate
repeated sequence 3 times
then did more core stuff and neck bridges.
Damn pullups! could only do 8 then 5 or 6 on the last two sets.
I watched the above handspeed workout video and my initial thought was this exercise is kinda useless. Well, I'm sure it's not useless but wouldn't a more power/speed type workout improve speed and explosiveness?
I'm talking about heavier weights and more explosive movements. Am I off base here? Anyone else have opinion on this?
Sorry not trying to shit on your workout Sam_slim_hound just wanted opinions on that video :)
the truth is that I was bored of my usual workout ( bodyweight only), that video looked funny and quick. I was just looking for something different in a random evening.
Interested in opinions on that video too anyway
Djdaze is right, the best way to increase speed is heavy lifting with low reps ( away from failure).
i once read that the fastest 30m sprinter are olympic weight lifters because they have the highest explosive strenght.
but for boxing strenght endurance is of mutual importance
when I lifted heavy I felt I could hit somebodies head off but had zero endurance, after less then a minute I could punch anymore.
when I only trained MT I could puch for a full training session but felt as if I lost power
never found a way to get both benefits at the same time
sam. read some works by yuri verkhoshansky
he seems to have a fair bit on resistance training for performance
Get used inner tire tubes from a bicycle, cut them up, tie them together to make a long band, wrap it around a post and shadow box while holding each end.... People think that holding dumbbells and shadow boxing will improve speed, that's baloney, what it will do is condition your arms so you can keep your hands up longer and not drop your guard, that's it. ...
I would also say clap push ups are good.
Anything that excites the neuromuscular system.
It's like if you go to the fridge and take out a bottle of milk which you think is full, but turns out it's only half full, so your muscle memory is going to use the amount of force that you're so used to when picking up a full bottle of milk out of the refrigerator door, and you'll probably bang the top shelf with the top of the bottle.
It's like that. Train your punches with elastic resistance and you'll get faster than you ever could when doing it without.
I watched a Youtube vid on it alright, I know what I'm talking about!! lol
Anyone here got experience with soft sand running? It is intense, so much so that when you come across a patch of some harder ground, it feels like a breath of fresh air because it is so much easier.
I did 3km Soft Sand today in 20mins, it is high tide in the mornings so haven't got the option to run on the harder sand near the water. Also heaps of miniature sand dunes to run up and down.
They say running on sand is 1.6 times the intensity of running on the road, and they are talking about the harder sand next to the water, not soft sand. I reckon soft sand running is ultimate - stamina, pain tolerance, will power, heart.... Though it canes your lower legs extremely, like that muscle which attaches to your heel (heel striking), so I wrapped up my legs with my shitty elastic Mike Tyson hand wraps.
Blake: verkhoshansky books costs 60 bucks for the ebook (and judging form the author website I can't even imagine how shitty the editing would be) and 100$ for the printed version. Is it the holy grail of training?
Can you please point me to a particular title? Supertraining maybe?
There is no holy grail of training.
Try to Google scholar search some ofhis aarticles
where I live a basketball coach lets his player run in the soft sand.
He believes it increase their jump.
i ran nai harn beach one day , end and back. couldn't move my calves for a few days
Yeh, your calves die, I went for my 4th run today, only did 2km cos I was lazy to do a slower longer run. I clocked 7 minutes for 2km, it's hardly a "4 minute mile" but I feel pretty good about myself, it's sand running too mind you..... I think i'm gunna do 2km runs for a while, till I can get it down to like 6.5 minutes, then go try a 3km and get faster and faster.
I do max reps body weight squats immediately after running, and then a plank (in push up position, not the pussy on your forearms), trying to increase my pain tolerance.
I think 2km fast runs could be good for Muay Thai conditioning, maybe 3km. Long runs have their benefit, sprints have their benefits, but I think a fast 2km - 3km could be good.
Took a shit
2 days recovery needed
Damn, 2 days? Your boyfriend must have packed in that fudge pretty good.

"Does anyone on here actually do any muaythai?"
i was asking myself the same question when I was reading through the posts
23:35 - 5th Sep 2014
Does anyone on here actually do any muaythai? Lol
No but they LOVE to tell you how to do it
S (Damon) The title of the post is "Share the workout you did today" Not "Share the workout you think you might do today but won't actually do"
I walked around a nightclub for 8 hours watching strippers give lap dances and people getting drunk acting foolish.
Oh I did it and I do it every day, thanks for the advice though muscles
Fuck me I hope this thread doesn't turn into a shitfest. I was actually enjoying seeing what other people's workout look like.

I can train a fair bit as I am a uni student again
also I don't find time, I make it.
no workout today sore as fuck. will return tomorrow. and mainly gonna do everyone's mum.
I find getting a bit older I can train as hard as the young guys, but just not as recover as fast from those sessions
exactly. also when you are heavier and older and trying to shed the pounds u have so much shit to lug around I think that means you have to exert yourself more to get the same results
what dog do you have Blake,

I don't find time, I make it.
That's a good take on it, I like it and I'm gonna use it.
rambutan: my dog is a bullmastiff
6*3 pad rounds with a newbie
2*10 min on bag
Had an advanced physiology lecture today talking about over training. Apparently when they did a hard day / easy day protocol with race horses they found it impossible to over train them. Might be something to consider as we age
i could only relate to that kind of study if they used old seaside donkeys lol
Older people should eat lots of Vegetables and Fruits, like a lot a lot, like almost become herbivores and consume Hemp Protein supplements, heaps of Spirulina (eat it with a spoon).... Think, in a perfect world where you had 100% self control, you could make yourself amazing... I wish I had self control...... When you come to the realisation that you in fact do not have free will, it's quite a thing it is...
I'm still drunk from last night, thats why I'm typing/speaking funny. I got so drunk that I proposed to my "interim" girlfriend via Skype and then fell asleep before the Skype session was over... I also crashed into the back of a parked taxi last night, he tried to go all tribal on me but I was like "$100 dollar! Pfffff, you will just put that back on with some super glue, here is $40, you take or maybe I call Police, you see the no parking sign?" he was just like "Youuuuuuuuu!" I was just like "Yaaaaaaa".... I know, I am such a charmer.... "Wish I had a perfect body, wish I had a perfect soul.... but I'm a..."
Oh I did BJJ the other day, it was so bad that I was fearing that a blood vessel in my head was at immanent risk of popping (that's how my uncle died). I did manage to Collar Choke one rolling buddy, but that's Gi, would only work in real life if the guy was wearing a shirt of extremely durable quality.... I also did some chest pressing, of 3RM's, then I suated, and dead lifted the day before yesterday, fuck that stupid long program I wrote here a little while back, I'm just sticking to the big 3, BSD (Bench, Squat, Dead) and 7 Sets of each then outta of that homosexual weights room.
Anyway guys, I'm off to the beach to lay down on a bean bag and recharge. Bye bye.

general conditioning circuit (pull ups, push ups, burpees, squats)
leg conditioning 6 mins of squats
abs conditioning ( plz don't ask) insane amount of every abs exercise , I was too tired to remember)
6 rounds of bag
2 rounds of pads
I had a friend work as a conditioning specialist with one of my fighters before his last fight. didn't really feel he did much. I see my fighter daily, I know inside his head and can sense when his mood is off etc.
I try and keep all the conditioning "in-house" now in that I steer the direction of what they should be doing.
I have the Muay Thai background, plus a near completed physical education degree majoring in exercise prescription. so I find what I put across as more real world than "conditioning specialists.
anyway I slept in this morning
evening ran 8km, technique work in an intermediates class dealing primarily with how to set up low kicks
then some light sparring, clinching, pads, and finished with body weighted exercises
pistols 3x10, swissball hammy curls, chin ups, super slow push ups, shrugs with 30kg dumbbells.
i got a damn virus
