Anyway... this workout was done 2 days after the hill race and I experienced dead legs in a way I never have before. It was so incredibly frustrating not being able to punch with any force!
I did one round of pad work 3 minutes non-stop combinations, I love how tired this gets me! My punching remained strong in this round...
Then 10 rounds of 1 minute on, 1 minute off on the bag.. this is when I really started to feel my legs go and got so frustrated that even though I was putting my all into it my punches just weren't being executed with any power! This must be so bad when it happens in a fight or in sparring, I've heard people talk about the effect on your punching when your leg strength has gone but my legs have always held up for me!
After this I did 2 rounds of this circuit 20s on each station with a 1min rest in between rounds..
- Shrugs (2 x 10kg)
- Star Jumps
- Rows (2 x 10kg)
- High knee DB press (2 x 2.5kg)
- Punches (2 x 2.5k g)
- Mountain Climbers
- Push-press (2 x 10kg)
- Leg raises
Well I've just managed some breakfast and ate fairly well yesterday in comparison to previous days so I'm hoping to head out for a better run soon... as I said in my last post I've signed up for a few races so it's time to get things in order!
