Alright, it's about time I actaully put fingertips to keyboard and got some of my training goals down.

Right now I train four days a week: Saturday/Sunday/ Tuesday/Thursday. I also usually do a small routine on my own before bed if I'm not hurting too much from training.

Training is mainly body weight stuff and consists of: pushups, squats, crunches, dips, pullups, shadow boxing, bagwork, target practice, sparring, technique drills (kicks, punches, sprawling, etc), focus exercises such as holding squat or pushup position for several minutes. I also do cardio, usually varying between skipping, jumping jacks, running, sprinting, suicides, etc. Each workout begins and ends with intensive stretching.

Apart from the kickboxing, I also trail run, although it's been a while since I've gone for a run (due to foul weather). So hopefully this will get me back into gear.

Main goals:

-Increase number of pushups by 5 every three months (Starting at 30)
-Increase number of pullups by 5 every three months (starting at 15)
-Increase running distance/cardio.
-Increase flexibility. Splits - currently I'm about 4 inches off the ground. Want to be completely flat in one years time (don't know if that's too lenient or not?) Round kick height - want to be able to consistently round kick head height on someone 6' tall.
-Killer abs to match my husband
-Decrease my overall body fat

Current specs: 5' 2", 105 lbs

It's hard to get out of bed that early in the morning, so I only do the 6:30am workout once a week. It's a great way to start the day. I wish I had the discipline to be able to do it more.

Hey Suz,
:boxer:
do you workout alone? Do you go to school for some training session?

How does the bag work look like?

Hey K-oz,

I work out in classes of between 2 and 16 students. There is usually 1 instructor, but for big classes we can have as many as 5 instructors teaching at once. Most students train only twice a week but I train four times a week because I'm insane and I love the rush I get from it.=P~

The club I go to is big, so there's plenty of room for everyone to work individually on their own bag. When we train on the bag it's much like traditional boxing except we also use our feet, legs and sometimes our knees and elbows for strikes (Muay Thai style). When we do rounds on the bag it's all out for the full two minute round (or three) using any technique we have learned according to our belt level. It's a crazy good workout. The class structure is great because it's quite competitive and forces you to go to your absolute limits.

Whenever I mention a "pre-warmup" in my training log, it means I'm working out before class on my own.

thx for reading my stuff, K-oz! 8)

Oh, you are very welcome!
I think it is so cool, that you are so passionate about that sport!
And it is so usefull as well, I bet you can kick anybody's ass.

I've tried martial arts as well and I find kickboxing so so interesting. I would like to be able to do it. But I have failed several times :roll: :oops:

My real strength is that I can run REALLY fast from the bad guys.

Oh, I know what you mean. They close the students gym when there are no lectures. So they are closed for two weeks now :zwangsjacke:

But the "reunion" ;) will be even greater. Looking forward to read what you'll have done tomorrow :)

What body fat at 105lbs? You mentioned MT elbow and knee strikes. What style of kickboxing do you train in and for how long? Do you ever do any knuckle push-ups, burpees, hindu squats, or box jumps?
Here are some websites for conditioning if you get bored with your current routine.

I guess I don't have much body fat...but I'm a bit of a perfectionist :| :)

I've been trainining for eight months now. This is the style of kickboxing taken directly from my club's website:

"We teach Mixed Martial Arts which consists of effective stand-up striking martial art, Muay Thai, utilizing punches, kicks, knees, and elbows, best techniques of the wrestling (Freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling) to keep the fight standing up, to take someone down, employ submissions and holds from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu."

We often do knuckle pushups, burpees (had to google that one), as well as box jumps. We don't do hindu squats although I might start doing them on my own, they look cool.

Thanks for the links veganmomma, i've bookmarked 'em they look awesome. 8)
