Entry #682

I destroyed the bag today. The entire contraption nearly fell over end. I've been running through everything that happened last spar and coming with solutions to them. Lateral movement; no backpedaling. Cross back foot over to step forward (I know, I know, but this is for that lame TKD drill). Lean into kicks. Don't play defensive; attack.

Later on, I did DE work. I tried dead squats for the first time. I started out with 135 and it was awkward as Hell. I managed to squeeze under the bar, but not to a stable enough position that I could actually stand up with it. By set 3 I got the hang of it, and was able to do fast reps of 225. I like these, but they're not easy on the knees. Good thing mine are in prime condition.

Also, I have to say that I'm usually an extremely studious buyer, but I made a pretty bad choice buying those bands. EliteFTS has some for only $35. I've been spending a great deal of time on that site, lately. There are a ton of good articles to read.

  1. Elitefts is awesome, really educated me on the Westside method. They have great products too.  You'd like the t-shirts, haha.
    Just don't buy the boards or chains.  You can make your own for much cheaper.
