    Thanks, Thunder. Good to be back.

    16/02/2016:

    Muay Thai

    Warmed up with 10 minutes of skipping with a heavy Thai rope, and moved on to some bag work for about half an hour or so. After that, class started with another 5 minutes of skipping. After skipping, we did a round of our technique of the day based off catching a kick. From there, into what started off as 3-minute rounds as sparring, but I suspect became 4-minute rounds about half way through. At the end of an hour, finished the class of with partnered drills, one person doing 100 knees on the bag, and the other person shadow boxing and swap after knees were finished, repeat for 3 sets each. After that, 2 x 1-minute rounds of just taking body shots from our partner. After that, trainer said "Okay, thank you, everybody go home! ...except for you, you and you" to the fighters with matches confirmed. Special finisher for us was 2 minutes of left-right alternating kicks on the pads, 2 minutes of knees on the bag, and 2 minutes of push kicks on the bag. Quick rest, then repeat again for another round of 60 seconds each. Finished with 50 sit-ups and 30 push-ups.

    I guess you don't log all the training you do in the hyperbolic time chamber in case one of your opponents reads it, right?

    Exactly. Also, had a busy few days- see below post.

    Volume is what volume is. I have a lot of hard work to do for my next fight coming up.


    22/02/2016:

    A wee bit about the past few days. Wednesday night, after training, was just laying in bed when a dude who I fought last year at 66 messaged me asking if I was going to a fight night on Friday night. I said yeah, and he said since the card was a bit empty would I be keen on jumping in for a demo/exhibition bout? Fuck yeah, why not, more ring time is good ring time. Thursday night he messages to say he was going to have to pull out, his leg was too bruised from training. Gutted. Trained hard on Thursday night anyway. Friday morning I get confirmation of a replacement- Richie Hardcore, one of the OG's of the NZ Muay Thai scene. Dude was one of the best fighters NZ produced back in the day, has fought in Thailand, a seasoned pro three years into retirement. He previously held the same belt as me, but 10 years on is sitting at a little over 80. Still, fantastic opportunity for some hard sparring with a legend of the NZ scene. So, we jumped in on Friday night and had a jam- thin shin guards, 10oz gloves, modified rules. Fun little match. Photo from the event:

    [​IMG]

    Saturday morning was 5/3/1 deadlifts and press. Finished with some walking lunges, and then 14 sets of 20W/40R on the Airdyne. Fucking killer of a workout.

    Anyway, on to today's stuff:


    Muay Thai:

    6am session. Warmed up with a 5.2km run. Probably about 23 minutes, but not 100% sure as Daria's timer started recording a little prematurely. Last 3km were all run at around a 4:30/k pace. Moved on to an hour or so of sparring, finishing with about 10 minutes of clinch work. Daria's very good, quite skilled in the clinch. Being a fat-as fat-ass though, I had the size and strength advantage.


    Strength:

    Didn't get around to doing this tonight. Made up for it next day.

    Lol. Yup, Tori's a hard judge. Lovely person though.


    23/02/2016:

    Strength:

    Squat 5/3/1:
    Bar x whatever
    60kg x 8
    77.5kg x 5
    85kg x 3
    97.5kg x 3
    110kg x 3+ (6 reps)
    60kg x 10 x 5

    Bench 5/3/1:
    Bar x 10
    40kg x 8
    50kg x 5
    60kg x 3
    70kg x 3
    77.5kg x 3+ (5 reps)
    42.5kg x 10 x 5

    Chin-ups:
    BW x 10 x 5

    Tyre drag sprints:
    5 sets, weight unknown, 25 meters out, 25 meters back.


    Conditioning:


    Just under a 6k run done in 25:34. Starting to feel better about my running times, but still a fair bit that I can shave off. I'd like to get that time down to 24 minutes if I can.


    Muay Thai:

    Sparring night. Warmed up with some shadow boxing, then a round of boxing sparring with our lead legs tied together. Freestyle from there. Pretty good evening of sparring, asides from when one dude broke his wrist when he got swept and landed badly (I didn't do it). Finished with a 15-minute round of clinch, then a 3-minute round on the bag of knees and elbows, then 2 sets of 20 reps of 2 kicks right leg, 2 kicks left leg (40 kicks per set) and 50 side crunches per side.

    Rest day

    This was a rest day because one of the guys from the gym was fighting. Woke up late in the morning, no time for the AM grind before work, then from work straight to the gym to pick him and a couple other guys up, then straight off to the fights. Junior is a very skilled dude- really great, positive attitude as well. Spent the fight mostly just fucking around, the few instances where he actually fought he was demonstrably the more skilled fighter. He didn't fight to win though, just went out to have fun, and that's all good. Reason for this was due to a last-minute rule change. We had only been told we were fighting mod Thai rules- get in the ring and the ref tells us it's K1. Wtf. Whatever, we rolled with it, but K1 isn't a style of fighting that Junior cares for. Either way, it was a really good night. Looking forward to his next bout.

    Deadlift 5/3/1:
    60kg x 5 x 2
    80kg x 5
    100kg x 5
    120kg x 3
    135kg x 3
    150kg x 3 + 4 reps
    120kg x 10

    Press 5/3/1:
    Bar x 10
    30kg x 8
    37.5kg x 3
    42.5kg x 3
    47.5kg x 3 + 5 reps
    30kg x 10 x 3


    Conditioning:

    5 rounds for time:

    10 inverted rows (feet elevated, rope)
    15 push-ups
    10 lunge jumps

    Quick little finisher this morning. Took about 5:30, first round taking about 45-50 seconds. Doing rows holding a pair of manilla climbing ropes is a lot harder than with rings or a straight bar.

    Conditioning:

    Only had time for a short one this morning, traffic being so heinous. On the Airdyne:
    2 minutes warm-up then 15 rounds of:
    20 seconds max effort
    40 seconds easy/recovery
    60 seconds cooldown and a quick stretch to finish.


    Muay Thai:

    Got some freestyle work done tonight with another Jai fighter instead of doing a class. Started off with a couple minutes of shadow boxing, a couple minutes of bag work, and then my training partner held pads for me for 20 minutes, then I held pads for him for 20 minutes. Rounds were long and untimed, but minimal breaks in between. Finished the session off with 20 minutes of clinch sparring.
