Fight Prep: 2012-05-12

Today was rough. We did a last dedicated sparring session before the national championships next wednesday. The schedule was simple, but far from easy:

  • Five rounds of shadow sparring (strict technical instruction)
  • Three rounds of sparring (boxing only)
  • Five rounds of shadow sparring (3 rounds pursuing loosely defined technical goals, 2 rounds freestyle)
  • Three rounds of sparring (kickboxing)
  • Five rounds of shadow sparring (3 rounds pursuing loosely defined technical goals, 2 rounds freestyle)
  • Three rounds of sparring (kickboxing)

That’s a total of 24 rounds á 2 minutes. Hence, the net total time was  48 minutes, 18 of which were pretty high intensity. Speaking of intensity, there was some blood, which isn’t necessarily a good thing just a week from the fight (wasn’t my blood, though). Although I strongly advocate light sparring, I just couldn’t help it today. Stuff happens. Anyhow, tomorrow’s mothers day, so no training.

Next week, I’ll just stick to the basics: shadow sparring, pads, rope skipping and stretching.

So long,

take care
