It’s been a while since my last post. Quite frankly, my motivation to post was pretty low as I wasn’t really doing martial arts training. Up until now.
Yesterday I did my first training – albeit a very light one – in ages. To be precise, it was the first time in 6 months I worked the pads.
The video – analysis was quite frustrating as there’s a lot of rookie mistakes. Also, my endurance ain’t anywhere near the point it should be. Well, I guess I shouldn’t be overly surprised by that.
Anyhow, it was a great feeling to be punching and kicking again.
Now as much as I’d love to get at it again, I’ll have to carefully limit my specific training as not to injure my ankle again. It’s time for me to build up a solid foundation of strength, endurance and joint stability before I can put an emphasis on improving my striking game.
My program will basically consist of lifting weights for strength, swimming for endurance and doing light technique training to re-learn proper biomechanics.
More on my training program will follow shortly. I’m back.
