Tien's Traning Log

Posted 06-23-2014 at 09:44 AM by Tien

Since I haven't been active lately, I will post a few updates of what I have done since I last posted here.

At the point when I made my previous post , which was about working on my endurance, there were also some things I was doing to work on speed and power.

One thing I did was an exercise that involved a dumbbell with weights only loaded on one side. I hold it to one side with both hands, then swing the weight horizontally, twisting my hips as I do this. This is good for building power in the muscles of the hips and waist that are used when punching, because the movement of those parts of the body are essentially the same.

Another exercise I do with that same dumbbell is one similar to kettlebell swings. I bend down and swing the weight up. I also alternate hands between each rep.

In a workout I would do 10 of the first ones on each side, then 10 of the second. At first I did this with rests in between until I did a total of 100 of each, which took 40 minutes to an hour.

After a while I built up to doing this non stop without any rest. I did a around 40 sets of 10 for each exercise, which was 400 reps in total. This took me around 40 to 50 minutes. I found that I also needed quite a lot of finger endurance for this.

I have continued to do this since then and am still employing this exercise now, so I'll post about my progress in a later post.

    Hi Tien, great to see you blogging again. That sounds like a very interesting set of excercises. And a tough regime. But I am very impressed by your skills and your endurance levels. 400 reps in 40-50 minutes is awesome. I would be interested to hear more about your training.
