As usual, thanks to both flip and Sento for recent responses. The encouragement from Sento is priceless.

I wonder if maybe I should do the shuffling/shuffling 1-2-3-4 on let's say Tuesday/Thursday, and do the bag work as prescribed on M/W/F. You see flipya4it noticed my sluggish hands not snapping at the bag, by the time I get to it my deltoid is a bit sore. therefore maybe breaking up the schedule a bit more would have me fresh days I hit the bag?

EDit: and I forgot, double end ball work doesn't create a recover issue, so even if not above, a few sessions per week?


You can split the workouts up if you feel that would allow you to perform more quality skill work. Of course you can always go back to doing both on the same days as your conditioning improves and you learn to relax more and use less muscle/effort in your punches.

Hello, Sentoguy, I tried to message you a while back but you were busy with your newborn (congrats if I didn't say it already). My send box had nothing, I don't know why.

Since you are the Doctor Frankenstein who put a bolt of knowledge on my head (joke) in early July I just want to know if you think I should switch format to regular heavy bag drill in which I would randomly move around the bag and throw randomly made up combinations, something like if I was facing an opponent.

Otherwise keep up with clock drill, clock with combinations, double end ball work and such.

Even if not, a word of encouragement would spark me, several people seem to view my log in over 35 lifter.

I think PM's are either not coming back online any time soon or back burnered for higher priority site improvements. Either is very understandable.

I am not speaking for Sentoguy, but video would likely help answer the "what to work on next" question.

Regards,

Robert A

As I was stating that I would post a ream of this week's videos on about Saturday, and said the same thing about last week, I will post today's last bag drill round now. I am double posting this over in my 'Kong Falls Dead from Empire State Building' thread over in combat, to attract some feedback as to where I sit at this time. doing it piecemeal keeps people aware that I am not just going to say nothing at the end of the week, but more importantly to help adjust form mid week and see how I look later on.

I last had actual lessons in early April, the coach was soured on me after I gave him some idea of what was said by board members back then, and I am working on financing another batch of lessons, but have not really researched a replacement coach. So I am in limbo.

I have had a lot of outside stress over the last week, and did nothing yesterday. today was centred around the bag, as will be thursday, Wednesday Friday will be more rope work and double end ball. the ball I will treat as if it was a bag, working the same technique just with no muscular recovery issues.

Today:

10 rounds clock drill

10 rounds clock drill with 1-2-3-4 combinations.

4 rounds shadowboxing, various combinations incorporating bobbing different ways.

3 rounds on the bag, culminating in a free form more as if I was trying to face an opponent.

last round:


I wasn't at my sharpest, as I am saying I have been dealing with life, but have my own observations. Too jumpy with my footwork. Telegraphing hooks by moving fist before body twist. Uppercuts still shitty. Inconsistent with bobbing and head movement.

Other comments I invite, advice I will enact on the double end ball tomorrow.

Oh, I thought it worked fine, maybe you got to it at an early stage. It works now, according to my download capability.

thanks to Irish answering, largely on my journal thread in over 35 lifter. I made a double end ball video today, but see no point in near term posting until I absorb better his observations and advice. Maybe improve tomorrow, or when I can get to it.

I just decided I want to get a medicine ball. they cost a few dollars and I wonder if anyone has insight into how heavy of one I need, I want to bounce it off a close by wall 2 minutes on, 30 seconds off, 3 rounds. My past coach said it will build arm strength, and he mentioned way back then that my arms are weak.

I am about 200lbs and 5' 11" tall. Please and thanks in advance.
