9am – 11am
Waking up feeling pretty good, my muscles are still a little sore from my workout in maine, but I feel good to go.
BMT in the morning working with Amy and Professor Cris. We start with the old school single punch series and hit the also old school hands and footwork drill as well as the hook slip drill from orthodox and southpaw. We hit a few combos with rolls and counters and get geared up for kickboxing. In kickboxing we focus on reems and hit the awesome cross hook reem line drill as well as 3 variations of the Dutch Drill. A few more combinations between the 3 of us and we bring it in for some strength and conditioning.
After the regular class, Amy and I link up for the MMA kickboxing class. We start with a cool drill where we attack moving backwards and then angle off to the side. We follow that up with a leg kick or head kick. Next we start working off countering single punches. We finish up with some rounds of sparring combinations back and forth including feints and leg kicks. After class, we hit 2 rounds of intense S&C with non stop 100% leg kicks and a 3 body, cross combination. I’m proud to always be pushing myself, always improving, and the consistent hard work and effort I put in. I’m also glad as hell to be back to training, my life is empty without it!
