@Flora & Zimmer:Whew, excuse me while I take a cold shower.....

I'd show my abs, but there's not enough room for that much manliness on one thread. What can I say? I liked my six-pack so much I layered a few more on top of it-But I put the last one in backwards. Razz

Hey... I've survived so far. :/

Started taking a Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc supplement, btw...

And yes, giggety, indeed.

I decided to add the Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc because I can feel some persistent fatigue in my shins (and a few other places) and I hope it will help a little bit.

The other stuff I listed before -- Aniracetam and Choline, etc. are mostly things that have a reputation in the transhuman community for increasing intelligence. Even if their impact is negligible, none of them seem toxic.

#1 for intellegence is getting more than 8 hours of sleep
ALL nights.

#2 is eating carbs every four hours out side of sleep


fatigue in shins is from shoes and will take AT LEAST three years to over come
by wearing vibram five-fingers and EATING

More than 8 hours of sleep isn't in the cards for me for the time being. If I did that literally the only thing I'd do in life is my job.

There's a light at the end of that tunnel, at least.

I'm basically doing the carbs thing, though.

So... couple of things about this workout so far.

1. It makes me more sore than I expected.

2. I had to substitute things for the punching/striking drills some days. Most commonly I've used a speedbag because it was most conveniently available. A few times I threw punches holding hand weights in front of a mirror.

3. Since gyms annoyingly close in the evenings, a few days I didn't do striking at all, but I don't feel so bad since I basically have been doing those daily, rather than every other day as listed. They're just kind of fun.

4. 5-6 meals a day has gone by the wayside more than once, although I've generally got the amount of daily calories right.

5. The army still makes me do their silly stuff two days of the week (Fridays we just show up to a gym and do what we want -- at least for now) and what they're going to come up with on any given day is unpredictable, so kind of irritating. The guy who started a Monday morning with "do a 100 squats" is my new arch enemy.

Seriously. I hate that guy. Not because it was hard -- it was hard, though -- but because it wasn't constructive except showing off that he can do a 100 squats.

Oh yeah... I haven't fully quit smoking, which blows. Still working on that.

I heard somewhere that training punches when you're holding weights make them slower, and as a result of that, weaker. Smarter to work on the heavy bag.

Dogman, is correct.
DO NOT hold weights and throw punches.

Other than "slower" it can REALLY hurt the shoulder.

For faster punching:
get blinking xmas lights and mount them on a cork board
or any flat board and put them on the wall.

Set them a blinking and try to touch the blinks.


More later...100 squats is drivel.
100 jumps from the squat position is WAY better ( see my youtube -
" old lady does the Spartacus workut with no warm up " )

When you shadow box, do it in two parts.
Shadow box fast, like in a real fight for speed and cardio.
Then shadow box ricockuosly slooooooooow, like tai-chi speed, to work the joints and sinew, and to work on good form.
You could always train in the ways of the Iron Fist:
Stand in a horse stance(legs spread wide, center of gravity low) and punch foreward without putting your shoulder or body into it. Punch empty air with empty hands at first, then move on to holding dumbells, then move on to hitting a punching bag (hanging from a beam), then finally a large bag filled with iron ore/powder. When you can make the bag swing back and OOVER the beam in a complete circle, you have mastered the technique of the IRON FIST.

(According to Shaolin legend. The author of this post has never tried this 'cause, hey, he may be stupid, crazy, and not great looking, but.....What was my point again?)

@Flora: I was quoting an old Shaolin Kiung-Fu training routine. Everyone has different opinions on what is safe and not. I prefer my "fast-slow" approach.

"Fast-slow" is fine but,
the ancient people also employed the technique of,

"You got hurt? ...too bad."


This technique is why there were so few at the top of the list
and
is not necessary.

Yoga, contortion and Ballet, also, employ this technique.

In the last 30 years, human knowledge has surpassed the sum total of all
previous human knowledge.

We, now, know which things only work for the very very very few.

I used to wear 30 lb arm weights and do an exercise similar the Christmas lights, 5 lights in front of me with a 1-2 second delay between a blink. Then go do an hour of bag work.

I used to throw 300-350 jabs a minute.(Less the weights of course.) Regular works outs with weights is only slower if you decide to start somewhere ridiculous, I started with 10 lbs and worked my way up, once you follow a program for a month and take the weights off, the results are amazing.

I agree not to hold the weight, but you usually get the best result if you're weighted while training.

An individual's response to a particular type of
training is not a policy-maker.

It's like saying,
"Hey, this ballerina is fine on point.
Why aren't you?"

Sleepless, I like this training, though!

Putting weights on the arm works the deltoid.
The deltoid is a small muscle - not really good for responding to weights.

What extends the arm for punching is the tricep.
The tricep does not respond to the wrist-weights + gravity.

I have more to share but am doing it in bits
while I watch the winds blow the rain.

Push ups are better for punches.

Did Bruce Lee puts wrist weights on?
No.

Did Bruce Lee do hella pushups?
Yes.

couple of things about this workout so far.

1. It makes me more sore than I expected.


ANY NEW WORKOUT ON ANYONE'S BODY HURTS.
IT GOES AWAY IN SIX WEEKS IF YOU KEEP GOING.
DO NOT WAIT FOR THE PAIN TO STOP
AND
YOU MUST EAT TO MAKE THE HEALING HAPPEN

2. I had to substitute things for the punching/striking drills some days. Most commonly I've used a speedbag because it was most conveniently available. A few times I threw punches holding hand weights in front of a mirror.

DO THE PRECIOUS PUSHUPS

3. Since gyms annoyingly close in the evenings, a few days I didn't do striking at all, but I don't feel so bad since I basically have been doing those daily, rather than every other day as listed. They're just kind of fun.

EVERY OTHER DAY CAUSES MORE HEALING

4. 5-6 meals a day has gone by the wayside more than once, although I've generally got the amount of daily calories right.

TRY FOUR, STEADY ON FOUR IS EXCELLENT

BODY BUILDERS WILL SUCK DOWN A SHAKE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT TO KEEP THE HEALING AHEAD OF THE WORKING.

JUST GET THE FOUR IN IF YOU CAN'T DO MORE

5. The army still makes me do their silly stuff two days of the week (Fridays we just show up to a gym and do what we want -- at least for now) and what they're going to come up with on any given day is unpredictable, so kind of irritating. The guy who started a Monday morning with "do a 100 squats" is my new arch enemy.


SNARK


Seriously. I hate that guy. Not because it was hard -- it was hard, though -- but because it wasn't constructive except showing off that he can do a 100 squats.


AGREED


Oh yeah... I haven't fully quit smoking, which blows. Still working on that.
