November 1st already! …12 more days…I hope everyone had a great weekend full of Halloween festivities and Sunday football. I stayed away from the Halloween madness this year because candy and alcohol are not a friend of the physique competitor! Instead, I started my day off with my regularly scheduled Saturday training. Rather than “Vanity Day” however (See previous post), we have shifted gears to a conditioning based training. Saturday’s are often spent at Ground Control and no better place to train for what you will see in the video below.
(Note: The instructors and athletes who train at Ground Control are AWESOME and very skilled. I do not however train MMA and my technique does not reflect their fine coaching skills. Do not critique my technique 🙂 This is merely for conditioning, fat loss, killer core/upper body and hip work. The name of the game when it comes to my “technique” for this is “Do Not Get Injured.”
Nick and I will spend about an hour training on Saturdays. During this hour, he calls out various combinations for a minute each. We usually combine 3 minutes of work with 1 minute of rest. We integrate jump rope and various calisthenics throughout as well.
