    So, weight training yesterday revealed that I REALLY need to up the stakes on my upper body strength. I lack it, and I'm diminishing in my abilities and it's hurting my Krav Maga sessions. So weight training will have a hardcore focus on training my arms after cardio, with ab work at the end.. Aerobics does a good job of training my legs and abs, so this will help balance it all out.

    Anyways, I demolished the circuit training in aerobics. It was pretty fun, the stations we did. Then Krav Maga class kicked my ass on the conditioning portion of the class, but technique wise I'm definitely getting better. Nothing is muscle memory yet, but I think I'll start writing down techniques I learn in my blog to keep me on track.

    You shouldn't just do arms, do your whole upper body. It's all connected. If you strengthen one part at the expense of something else, you set yourself up to get hurt.

    Just got back from CSW. Feel great.

    Kinda torqued my buddies shoulder a little bit during a kimura today.

    We were doing a lot of clinch pummeling.

    I just realized that there are a bunch of videos from my gym on youtube.

    This is the gym's owner and head coach, Kenny Barry doing a little promo.

    Didn't realize you were an Eric Paulson guy.

    Yeah kimura can be dangerous if you just wait for the pain to tap.

    This is a great point. Currently I do bicep curls, tricep extensions, and bench press and lateral pulls. Is there any other ones that help with all over muscle strength??

    You'll need good shoulder strength. Overhead press, dumbbell lateral raise, bent over rows, might want to throw in some wrist curls for forearms...

    And work your rotator cuff muscles...otherwise you'll end up like Halla and have a bunch of tears...And put some doctor's 12 children through college.

    Yeah, those are great. Incline presses will help too. Pulldowns and chins, Shoulders, lats and serratus anterior work will really help your punching power. And torso work too.

    I always make them submit me. You train hard, you fight hard. You train soft, you fight soft.

    Guess I've rehabbed too many knees and shoulders doing that.
