    Not very often the last half an year. It is just that I work at different spots, often resorts and there are no martial art gym. I try to shadow box, bag work, or spar with friends to keep things going.

    Morning private boxing class

    Private session at 7 am today. I was so angry with my bad habits from the video I posted. I called yesterday a 79 years old coach who has an olympic medal in boxing and explained him the situation. Showed the video to him. He laughed at it and we worked on my posture, my feet and snapping my shots. 1 hour of jabbing, footwork, 1-2, 1-1-2.

    Basically my stance has been way too wide. He showed me the boxing stance first and then we worked something similar which is not that bladed. He explained it is just another boxing stance. Explained me to transfer weight. Explained to me jump often at a spot to check my stance and how good my feet are staying.
    Then footwork, he wanted way smaller steps, way way smaller steps. Again jumping up relaxed to check my feet if they are wide.
    Snapping the shots - less hip rotation, more snap that comes from the back foot and weight transfer. When you snap like he asks your hands come very fast into a defending position. Again feet are narrow, steps are small, just weight transfer and a snap. Like if you are hitting with a skewer or a small sword. Very relaxed hands, rotating the hands and putting strenght only at the end.
    Getting the posture up all the time, he was shouting at me to relax and get up, chin down. Arms relaxed, back relaxed, chin down, feet relaxed.

    Very, very good experience that costed me only 5 Euro. I am in love with this coach, hopefully he can help me lose some bad habits.

    Afternoon
    1 hour of boxing drills and spar with a friend

    Been working on distance drills for 1-1, 1-2, 1-1-2 and some simple counters. I tried to box simple and apply what I learned from today. It was way better but still lots of work to be done.

    Boxing private session.

    Working on the 1-2, the jab, the cross on pads and a bag. Some footwork and trowing the jab, the 1-2 and the cross on the move. Lots of relaxation while footworking and trowing, working on the posture and body posture when trowing. Some work on the guard.

    There were 2 more people, to whom the pull counter was explained and how to draw it and how to flow in between their jabs and drawing a counter so they can pull and trow the cross. I was watching with amazement. Then they did some side steps with a cross counter. While I was struggling to trow a proper cross :D. The coach wanted me to relax on it, and not trow it with the body at all, but just transfer weight from leg to hand, without moving the body. He also wanted that on the jab, just to do a little semi jump initiated with the rear foot to make the weight transfer. Then he gave us a story about a national boxer who he has coached who has been terrible on the pads, but so relaxed on the body and the feet that in a boxing match you can not really hit him.

    Morning Boxing Private Session

    Today I sucked too much. I was not doing anything properly. We worked on footwork and trowing a quick punch on the move but God I sucked. The coach tried to encourage me, but it was not a good work out. Then we did some cross and 1-1-2, a bit working on the guard, to try different ones and see what would suit me more.

    Noon Lower Body Strenght Training Squat

    Squat 3x8x80kg
    Leg Curls for the back side 3x12x50kg
    Hyperextensions - 3x15 body weight
    Walking Lunges with Dumbbells - 3x12 steps each leg x 20kg
    Calfs - 4x15x55kg
    Simple core work

    I am too tired, so I need a day off this week, but not sure when.

    So I took 2-3 days off. I was even a bit sick, I guess I over trained a bit too much the last week.

    21.05.2017 - Just 1 hour and 15 minutes of soccer. I gave it all on my gas tank today I was well rested so I put a lot of effort running. Proper cardio training.
