Entry #434

With the advent of the California weather rising up into triple digits, I've made sure to add on an extra shirt to my usual double layer of a t-shirt and sweatshirt, hood pulled up and all. Anything less would be letting the heat win.

Training brings an uncomfortable element, which is apt for my purposes. What isn't is how much softer the bag becomes. Mewing weakling. I started off by waiting until the hottest part of the day to work the heavy bag, but the patio prevents ample sunlight from filtering in, unfortunately.


> Strive for longer rounds. I'm getting better and better at working through fatigue. My strikes never lose snap. Form must be payed attention to the more it sets in, however.

> Utilize more head movement.

> Roll the shoulders more. They should be thrusted out in conjunction with the hips. Don't think of the body as having separate compartments. Everything must work together.

The latter is the focus of critique. All in all, there needs to be less arm punching.

Later, at night, I walked to the track and did a DE session almost exclusively with bodyweight exercises. The exception were front raises. These were done with track hurdles. I would have used an actual human track runner, but they were nowhere to be found.
