Last Week Before Stripe and Belt Testing

Hips feel like they had a workout this morning. Lower back also feeling a little sore, not painful but like it got worked like it never did before. So, it would appear that my stretching routine last night is engaging some new muscles, exactly what I was looking for.


Legs week continues. Same workout as Wednsday. Lots of legs intervals and a plank interval. Also was our last chance to practice our Muay Thai and Krav Maga.

Improved my Krav Maga point of reference a bit. My training partner and I both tried to pull our arm loose when when we were the attackers. Mr. Angel pointed out some ways to improve how we were locking in the attacker’s arm(s), which made it much more difficult for them to pull free.

Muay Thai Pad Holding

My partner today had a slightly different way of holding pads for elbows, which gave me a different feel when throwing them. I’m becoming more convinced that I should schedule a private session to work on my pad holding so that my training partners are getting the most out of their training.
