Well, some background.. around march or so this year (2015) I started JKD lessons, which I really liked. Had a weekly routine going that worked for me. JKD lessons fell through around end of summer though, for rant-worthy reasons that are too lengthy and irrelevant to post here Well, I joined a Kickboxing / MMA gym that I really liked. The conditioning aspect is a whole different kettle of fish. Unfortunatly, my (anaerobic) endurance was already worse then I thought. And had a run of bad luck with catching a nasty flu, bruising my rib and just having a lot of R.L. stress and chaos intervering. Well, It's time to get back into that flow, hence I thought it might be interesting to keep a log here. My main goal right now is: Being able to at least finishing a K.B. group lesson without getting gassed and dropping out. For this, I'm working a HiiT program on the elliptical to get that aerobic endurance going. *Also, my core muscles are a weak area, and since the group lessons use a lot of bodyweight exercises (which I'm disgustingly bad at), developing this is also a priority if I'm planning to keep up in the lessons. Secondary goals will be: *Lowering / maintaining bodyfat; I'm slowly gaining weight. I'm not too bothered right now, but it is a good thing if I can keep it in check now rather then later. Might not be a big issue once I get going. *Keep on developing strenght using machines or freeweights *Maintain my endurance running if possible; back in august, I could run 10km, I'm struggling right now to finish 5. I hope I can at least stop the decay Well, first day will be tomorrow if my day permits. I'll post how it goes.
