Update: I've had some symptoms of a cold lingering on at around the time of my last post. I have another workout from last saturday or sunday, which I'll post later. This whole week I've had a bad cold and was so drained and didn't really feel well at all. From my past experiences, for me, when I work out when sick it just makes it worse. I'm going to work out tomorrow since all I have is a runny nose

Hey General,
What is your fighting 'style/system'.
I'm just wondering because I am trying to get an idea of whether you need to work on proximal muscles for throwing/grappling, or if you need to work on more strength in arms and legs for kicking/punching.
Just curious.

I'm not involved in any form of martial arts. I joined this forum because I was attracted to the knowledge of the people here and how everyone helps eachother out. Maybe I'll get into MA one day; if I was going to I would probably do boxing or kickboxing...

That's good to know, I feel the same way about the members of this forum. I guess that's why I'm still here.

V. V-sits - 10sec each position, 2 sets

Comments: Form on lunges was bad until last set - this is why I kept it light...Last set I made bigger lunges and my right side felt more comfortable/balanced. Going to start stretching every day

BTW, not really sick anymore and I felt great doing this workout tonight, even while doing lunges/speed rope outside And HAPPY EASTER!@!, I didn't hold back from pigging out because I was so worried about it, but because I just don't like to anymore. While I had a cold/didn't feel well I naturally got thinner and I liked the way I looked. I know its because I didn't eat as much because my appetite from being all stuffed up and feeling sick. Even thinner people have to watch out for over-eating...

Cardio & Stretching

I. Speed Rope
--A. 10-15min total; about 10 burn-out sets of ranging from 45-60seconds, most times starting at a mod. pace and working up to full speed.

II. Stretching - 3 sets
--A. V-sits - 10sec each
--B. R,L,M - 10sec each
--C. Kick heights - 4th height

Comments: Liked new leg pull stretch. It's where you lay on your back and pull one leg toward your stomach using your arms to pull/stretch it as much as possible.

I've been thinking about joining a gym lately. My upper body workout is 10x more intense than my leg workout, which will never give me great results. Maybe I'll join a gym so I can do squats and never have to worry about setting up equipment such as adjusting dumbbells, weighting chairs to do dips, balancing a heavy barbell on my bench to do shrugs, going outside in the cold weather to do certain exercises, etc.
