Workout/Martial Arts 06/08/2020: Zoom Muay Thai Seminars and New Normal Training

To say this year is not what I remotely thought it would be, would be the understatement of the year. It just seems like one thing after another.

Anyway, everything I was looking forward to for Thai Training has been canceled. We just started going back to training in the gym, with our New Normal training. You know…. training with masks, social distancing, sanitizing everything, and no partner work except for with my H.

We found out, and believe me I understand it is for the safety of me and others, but Thai Camp is canceled this year. I was so looking forward to it.

With everything that is happening this year… its for the best, and I can focus my efforts to fight for those that need help. Fight for those that need a voice.

Well this week I was able to attend for the first time ever in my training a Zoom seminar with Ajarn Chai. He was able to teach us for 3 hours Muay Thai training techniques while he was in Thailand and we were here in America. I loved it. I miss my people, but I loved seeing him and supporting him.


Monday 06/08/2020: 1 hour and 20 minutes 1 mile run, 20 minute weight lifting workout, and 45 minutes calisthenics

It was to hot to cover up my imperfections and things I hate about my body. So I am letting it all hang out.

The words I chose were K.O. GIRL for the Calisthenics workout.

1 mile run in 13:30

Weight Lifting:
1 minute Fast Feet x3
Olympic Back Squats x3 sets of 8
Bulgarian Split Squats x3 sets of 15 each leg

Calisthenics: K.O. GIRL done in a Superset x3 with a minute rest in between

K) 20 Russian Twists wit 25lb kettle bell
O) 30 Sit-Ups

G) 15 Burpees
I) 25 Standing Knee Crunches
R) 30 Crunches
L) 15 Mule Kicks each leg

It was a hot but great workout. I did not want to do it, but put away my wants knowing I needed to do this workout because it’s good for me. In the end I am happy I did. I got to use my new pants and they are freaking awesome. I support these women owned companies that build us up. I felt like a Bad A** in these pants.

Tuesday 06/09/2020: 1 hour and 15 minutes Muay Thai Training

Thank you Khun Kru Krysta for another great Muay Thai class.

It was great to get into class and forget the world for a freaking hour. I was able to punch and kick the sh*t out of bags, pads, and dummies.

That BOB dummy we have now we refer to as Chuck is is very satisfying to hit in the chin over and over again. Kru complimented me on my combos on him. Target acquisition (read face) is much easier for me on a dummy with a face. I am glad Khun Kru brought him in.

Training: (Responsible Training maintaining social distancing, masks, and of course cleaning each station before rotation.)

1) Punch Ball (Target acquisition and reflex training)
{jumping Jacks clean up balls}
2) I served Punch Ball to H
{jumping Jacks clean up balls}

3) Jab, Cross, Lead Kick (if working fundamentals and you already know them work on perfecting the form)
{Jumping Jacks}
4) opposite stance (south paw for me) Jab, Cross, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}

5) Jab, Hook, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}
6) opposite stance (south paw for me) Jab, Hook, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}

7) Jab, Cross, Hook, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}
8 ) opposite stance (south paw for me) Jab, Cross, Hook, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}

9) Jab, Cross, Hook, Cross, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}
10) opposite stance (south paw for me) Jab, Cross, Hook, Cross, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}

11) Jab, Lead Elbow, Lead Knee, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}
12) opposite stance (south paw for me) Jab, Lead Elbow, Lead Knee, Lead Kick
{Jumping Jacks}

It was a great to get my body moving even though I am so sore from yesterday’s training. After we warmed up my body gave in to the training and gave me what I needed. I need to appreciate my body and how amazing it is more often.

Wednesday 06/10/2020: 1 hour and 10 minutes Muay Thai Training

Workout: 45 minute run and calisthenics workout

I am sore and really did not want to do this workout. But I did. I have many thoughts today.

1) Now is not the time to be sedentary in either you political life or physically, get up get moving a and fight for what you believe in. It is far easier to chase down the racist when you already run.
2) It is so creepy when a big utility van slows down turns around and drives slowly behind you. This happened in the middle of the day. I was in a residential neighborhood. Women should not have to live in this kind of fear.

First picture is blown out cause the Day Star was actively attacking me. But I was sweating buckets outside. Second pic better focus.

The word/workout of the day was WONDER thank you Angel.

I ran a mile in this terrible heat.

Weight lifting:
Windmills with a shoulder press- 25lb Kettle Bell x 3 sets of 10 each side

Calisthenics: 20 minutes WONDER done in a superset. 30 seconds rest between sets.

W) 15 Superman
O) 30 Sit-Ups
N) 15 Jump Lunges
D) 30 second Plank with Shoulder Touches
E) 15 Push Ups
R) 30 Crunches

I feel like there is someone behind me.

Saturday 06/13/2020: 4 hours of Muay Thai training

Workout: 4 hours of Thai Training today.

1 hour at Muay Thai training with Khun Kru Krysta.

3 hours of Muay Thai training at a Zoom seminar with Ajarn Chai! Thank you Living Muay Thai for putting this on. I love my Thai Tribe. It was so informative. I took many notes I will transcribe later. I am tired now. We just finished.

I miss my people and will miss Thai camp this year. But next year!!! It was wonderful seeing Ajarn Chai again. Kap Kun Ka!


So I am late putting this blog post up. Its Monday now, and I usually have it up by Sunday. I had a great week of training. I got a good 4 hours of training in Saturday and I was exhausted at the end of the day.

I am keeping up with my training, so I can keep fighting for what I believe in.

I am learning new ways to train with the people, teachers and trainers I love.

Things have been canceled, things have changed, but we are rolling with the changes, and we are learning and adapting as we go along.

I hope that you all are doing well. Keep fighting for what you believe in. If you like this, subscribe. Comment if you want, and have a great day!
