Conditioning Day 12… Pad Work In the Park

2.5 hour Conditioning training today. There was a BJJ seminar in our gym today so all of the classes were canceled, and we decided to do our training out in the park. It was a beautiful day. Sunny, breezy and not terribly hot. We stayed in the shade of a big tree. The kiddos got to play in a play ground right next to us. There was a graduation party going on next to us as well. The people setting up wound up watching us. I guess it is not normal to see people drilling boxing, elbows, and knees at the park.

H had me working on 4 minute rounds. No burn outs today, just constant work. We worked on my boxing stance, since I tend to square up when I shift weight on my cross and jab.

We worked on my slip, knees and elbows. We also worked on knees to elbows, punches to elbows, punches to knees.

He can tell the difference in my downward diagonal elbow now that I have been to a Arjan Chai seminar. It is more powerful, and I throw it much better. He has started using that technique as well.

I worked up a sweat, we got about 20 x 4 minute rounds in. It was a great Saturday workout, and a great conditioning day 12 workout. I have 10 days left to train up for camp.

I recorded some video of two of the drills we did.

Here is the Cross, Jab, Slip, Jab, Cross, Slip drill we did.

And this is the Jab, Cross, Upper Cut, Upper Cut, Body Hook drill we did.

I hope you have a great day! Thanks for reading.
