2/23 Amateur Kickboxing Debut
Win by TKO, 37 seconds into first round. Decided to blitz, seemed to work. Little anticlimactic after all the training and worrying, but can’t complain.
Getting back to more of my regular training
Axle Strict press
20 pulls parts, 10 neutral pushups while wearing 50 lb vest between each set
Removed vest, continued pushups with bodyweight
Timed rounds of plate raise and plate curl, switching exercise when hitting fatigue. Tried to minimize/eliminate any rest. 3 3 minute rounds with a 25 lb plates, mostly sets of 5 before switching
Banded DB Tate press
New favorite tricep assistance. Three days later long head of tricep still quite sore, usually I struggle to get my triceps to actually contract. Hopefully building up my arms a bit will help with my lame-o strict press.
25’s and mini band x 15 x 5
Bunch of overhead squats and other movement-y things.
Snatch grip high pull from hang
Feel strong, traps very sore. May actually program and progress on these to see what type of carryover they have to other movements and such.
Average band around neck x 100 RP
225x8x4 surprisingly difficult after above work
A few windshield wipers, body raises (locked arms on a pullup bar raising myself to a front lever type position, but obviously not gymnast quality) and other hanging abdominal movements.
