Training update – do jang and gym days (October 17 and 18)

Monday, October 17

I went to the do jang and though I wasn’t planning on taking class, I ended up in it anyway (needed a spare person). Afterwards, I practiced some stuff on my own. Some kicks, some hand stuff and my patterns.

After, I went to the gym. I really notice when I haven’t been in the gym recently. I missed a week a few weeks ago and muscles tend to get quite lax in just a few days. So, I did a quick run through of the following exercises:

Leg press
Hamstring flexor
Hip adductors
Hip abductors
Pull-ups (again military and parallel)
Chest press
Bar pulls (works the muscles next to the scapulae on the back)
Pectoral press
Shoulder fly
Shoulder lift
Bicep curl
Tricep extensor
Leg lifts
Back extensor

I was feeling a little tired so I just went home to relax.

I went to the do jang for gumdo class. What do you know? I managed to get there on time. 😀 I ended up taking about half of the taekwondo class. I wasn’t sure about taking it today because I needed to do stuff after the class. I decided to run through the what we’re doing for the demo since I was the one who came up with it (it’s a women’s self-defence demo). I think it will be good, but need lots of practice. By December, we should be able to run-through the demo and get the techniques down near perfect. I didn’t have time for a run, so hoping I can get one in today.
