Yea, I worked on v-day at this restaurant I used to work at and didn't get home till 12, then I hadto be up at 5:30becuase I strted a new job and its a bit far from ehre i live and I didn't wanna be late so I skipped my workout yeterday and today in exchange for sleep. I packed myu bag though to go straight to the gym after work tomorrow. No more excuses. I feel like crap though... This weekend really got to me...

My job is fun so far, the training atleast. I wonder what its gonna be like when we get on the line. I'ma build Tundras for Toyota!! Everyone's tellin me that they're goin down but I dont think so....

Matt,

It took me a minute to understand the Saturday Carb loading. I seem to be mildly allergic to something in our American hops, it makes me ill for days. Havn't been to your side of the world yet, but English and German seem better for me.

I had Tuesday good with a third bench rest set at 185 and a second working set of deadlifts at 225. THen work had me late Thursday and there was no time betwen getting home and taking my son to BMX. We'll see how this week goes. I've gotten no real technical practice in either. Bleagh!

This week's goals are twice at the gym and twice on fundamentals. I've been thinking through the spine orientation this past week and starting to more appreciate it. Just need to practice that appreciation a bit more.

So much for goals, reality intruded. Tuesday I was ill but hit the gym at a reduced capacity. Thursday was to be a gym day. However, my back gave out and I have trouble walking and sitting up. *sigh*

It does point out the utility of the straighter back I've been taught in taijutsu.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8DXiCr3-jE&NR=1 This is a link you may wish to look at gents. It is for anyone who advocates actual blows to the head in training.

DOn't classes use head gear during sparring training? I think there's a difference between a boxer who is looking for a knockout and a sparring partner showing they did make contact.

Of course, not having a partner means I'm just beating myself up. ;)

Head gear only lessens the trauma, it doesn't prevent it. This can happen so quickly it does mean we should know what the possible result would be BEFORE starting down that road.

A few years ago I was doing western sword training. Fun stuff. Went to one class having had a crick in my neck for a while. One of the guys caught me on the side of the hockey helmet. His blade withdrawal, duct dape over a padded stick, had enough friction to grab my helmet and pop my neck for me. Felt much better afterwards!

While I don't advocate pounding anyone, I'm not sure moving totally away from head contact in sparring is the right thing. The video mentioned issues with boxers and even they only had a 50% affected ratio. Maybe the 50% least able to block a shot to the head? Still, given that I've been in classes for a while and haven't taken more than half a dozen good hits to the head, who are we talking about? Who is training with full contact to the head on a routine basis?

Hi Leam,

Yes, the hops was an attempt at humour... :o)

I used to hit the weights pretty hard, but found that after a while I put on too much weight.

I've subsequently had several vertebrae fused and am now a strict convert to gentle stretching and using my body weight for strength training.

That said, I confess that I'm far from scientific in my approach... though it seems to work for me (touch wood).

I'd love to talk to some of the senior members who have access to the medical practitioners in Japan!

Regards,
Matt

PS - I found brewing my own with distilled water and fresh hops keeps the pipes clean!
