Legs Week and TRX FORCE KIT

TRX Practice

I received my TRX FORCE Kit earlier this week and spent a bit of time doing the first of the FORCE workout program. Look for a full review of the TRX and training program in the next couple of weeks. Today in the morning I did the TRX FORCE Week 1 – Day 1 workout. I’ve not started tracking anything yet, just wanted to start getting used to the exercises and transitions. I plan to start the Force program for real next week.

ABD Legs Week!!!

Wall Squat

Wall Squat


I hit ABD Norwich for a double single class. Had planned on the double but my shoulder was just starting to act up at the end of the first class so I decided not to push it. This week is the best my shoulder’s been in the past couple of months. I’m at 13 classes and I’m almost caught back up with all my classes. I’m good for stripe testing next week, and if I keep up 2x / week, I should be in good shape for stripe testing and then belt testing at the end of June. This is legs week, so that means squats, squats, squats. One legged, wall, jumping, it was all in there.

Muay Thai

Our focused practice was the cut kick. We used the jump forward and focus on swinging the leg down method. This was similar to the kicks we worked on during the Jake Steinman Muay Thai Seminar. Since this is a Muay Thai quarter, Wed/Thur classes mean sparring for BBT students. This was nice easy sparring, Master McShane said it should be easy enough that no one hates sparring after this. We rotated through three partners. I think I’m getting better at not chasing to block a punch; it’s a bad habit I have that I’ve been trying to fix. My other bad habit is trying to block kicks with my arm instead of bringing my knee up.

Here’s a video showing how we were working on the cut kick

Krav Maga

Worked on all the month 2 material. Defense against front knife threat to the throat, both same side and cross body. The defenses are starting to flow a bit smoother and becoming a bit more automatic.
