Bas Rutten and Muay Thai Practice

I feel myself struggling again with my home workouts. I had recently cut out the R.O.P.A. workouts, replacing them with more Muay Thai and Krav Maga practice. Tonight, I cut out my Convict Conditioning work, and replaced it with some Bas Rutten and Muay Thai practice. There were two reasons for this. One, it’s legs week at ABD Norwich, and my legs are still sore from last nights training. My shoulders are also sore from last night. Second, I felt I needed to practice my Muay Thai more than I need to do some Convict Conditioning. Another reason is I have limited time, and trying to fit everything in is not working well.

I’m also starting to feel like I never really get a chance to recover from my ABD training and my at home training. Often I’m doing squats or ab work at home, when I’m still sore from ABD. I think I’m moving away from the at home calisthenics and relying on ABD for that work. At home I’ll stick with Muay Thai and Krav Maga practice, and my kettlebells. I’m not quite ready to give up the kettlebells yet. I’ll try it for a few weeks and see how I like it. Really wish I could settle into a home routine that feels right.



Usual routine

Bas Rutten Thai Kick Boxing

Couple of 3m rounds of Thai Boxing

Muay Thai practice

Technique practice, 50 jabs, 50 crosses, 25 jab/cross combo

20 right round kick /
20 left round kick

On the kicks I’m having a hard time getting my hip to roll all the way over. I think I’m trying to keep looking at what I’m kicking. I think I need to look through the target to where I imagine I’m aiming for with the kick. I also don’t think I’m pivoting enough on my left foot, something to keep an eye on next time.

20 knees each side, slow for technique. Working on projecting the hip and knee forward at the end, instead of just kneeing up.
