Thread: Hajime no Seven - the second blog

    Hajime no Seven - the second blog

    I was gonna ttt my old blog from the main forum, which I think had over 30 pages, but since we had the forum move, it's been archived and I can't get to it. I figure since everyone else is blogging now, I will too.

    I'll start with last night:

    4/11

    I had some meetings during lunch, so I skipped out on the gym. In thai boxing, we covered traditional stuff, as opposed to the sport aspect, which we normally cover. Afterward, I put on the gloves with a training buddy there and did the following:

    2 rounds straight shadowboxing

    2 rounds pad drills

    2 rouns of kicks on the heavybag

    1 round of interval punching - 15 seconds slowly, followed by 15 seconds of punching as fast as I could

    1 round of power shots - no jabs - each strike was donw as powerfully as I could

    1 round of jabs only

    1 round of jab/cross combos

    I have alot of bag and shadowboxing routines that I do, each to work different aspects of my game. I'll post them and go into more detail as the days go by. All in all, last night was a pretty light night.

    4/12

    today is roadwork day. I did interval runs based on round lengths. So, for example, run for 3 mins and either walk or jog for 1 min. I did this for 8 rounds.

    tonight I have a judo class and will do some shadow boxing. I'll post what we did after we do it.

    "beginning's sevenstar"?

    errr

    "sevenstar no hajime" or "sevenstar no hajimeru" might be a lil more correct....

    otherwise, welcome aboard the blog bandwagon.
    What would happen if a year-old baby fell from a fourth-floor window onto the head of a burly truck driver, standing on the sidewalk?
    It's practically certain that the truckman would be knocked unconscious. He might die of brain concussion or a broken neck.
    Even an innocent little baby can become a dangerous missile WHEN ITS BODY-WEIGHT IS SET INTO FAST MOTION.

    ^ Yeah. "No" = like " 's "

    It might be a phrase that doesn't translate, tho. I could see "Hajime no X" as being "the beginning of X," even tho it doesn't literally translate that way.

    When you say "slow punches for 15 seconds", how slow is "slow?"

    depends on my speed. yesterday I covered about 2.5 miles. The goal of the three minutes on, one minute off is to simulate rounds in the ring. yesterday was not all out sprinting, but my goal is to be able to get to a full sprint for each round.

    The normal pace that I throw punches when I shadowbox. the fast is nonstop, repeated punching as fast as I can.

    ok, cool, i don't feel so bad about my pace then. I'll hit between 2.4 and 2.7 depending on how I'm feeling that day. just curious, thanks.

    4/12

    judo - we warmed up and did some moving uchi komis, followed by about thrity minutes of "throw for throw" drills - we move around as we would in typical randori, but we take turns throwing eachother. This was followed by thirty mins of actual randori. I tried to focus on movement and sweeping more than anything - keeping my opponent busy so I could set up the big throw, which for me (right now, anyway) is either harai goshi, uchi mata or tai otoshi. I also tried to focus on grip fighting and establishing my position quickly while nullifying theirs.

    4/13 - gym

    lifted weights today. my hero was in there - the man is 69 and can bench 275. There was also a loud mouthed buddy of mine in there... whenever I see him, he talks about his "glory days" when he was one of the baddest bouncers in miami. He also gave me his take on k-1, mma, etc. This ain't his blog though, so that's not important. Here's what I didi today.

    bench press:
    145 X 10 - 2 sets
    245 X 4 - 7 - 8 sets
    225 X 5 - 2 sets

    dips:
    4 sets of 10

    tricep press downs (The bench, seat for my presses and dip station were all taken, so I did them while I was waiting)
    1 pyramid set, from 30 - 70, then back down


    dummy military press
    40 X 8 - 4 sets

    All in all, not a heavy day, but it felt good nontheless. Tonight I have muay thai and will post about it later.

    Haha, SevenStar is in so much better shape than me it's not even funny

    Better endurance
    Better strength (probably... except in pullups)
    Better fighting ability

    w00t. Way to go, bro.
