Do jang and gym days – September 14 and 20, 2006

MM,

Wow, I managed to get into the do jang last Thursday (September 14). It was good to get back to the do jang. I’ve missed taekwondo so much. It was one of our crazy kicking classes.

After I got home from the do jang, I went for a run. I ended up with some cramps because I drank some water on the way home. 🙁 I will just have to go for a run some other time.

My weekend was busy as usual.

I went to the do jang tonight (Wednesday, September 20). I skipped out on the poomse class and went to the regular martial arts class. We did some neat kicking combinations. Hehe… it’s been a while since I’ve done tornado kicks – I almost forgot how fun they are.

After the do jang, I went to the gym and did a little bit of weights. I hadn’t eaten much today so I decided that I shouldn’t push too hard (though I did increase the weight on the leg press :D).

Leg lifts
Pull-ups (aka chin-ups, military and parallel)
Dips
Leg press
Hamstring flexor (called seated leg curls)
Hip adductors
Lateral pull downs
Seated row
Seated chest press
Pectoral fly
Shoulder fly
Shoulder lift (this is called the shoulder press)

Free weights:
Situps (on a incline bench; worked out the obliques as well by doing double punches during the situp)

Tomorrow or maybe Friday I can get a run in. I need to run. I can feel the lack of good cardio and nothing beats the running. It’s just so hard to cross train taekwondo, running, and weight training. Now, I’m thinking of adding in tai chi. At my do jang, we don’t work on hand techniques quite as much as I would like and I want to learn tai chi sword style one day, so I thought I should check out a tai chi school. I’ll post a bit about that later.
