obstacles | wednesday workout

A couple of week’s ago I lost my Polar heartrate strap. It literally blew out the kitchen window never to be seen again (I live on the 10th story of a large apartment block, so it is literally lost forever). I’ve been feeling weird working out without my Polar tracking my heartrate and calories. It’s like I have no evidence!

Yesterday’s workout was sparring in the park with Jay. 

  • 1km jog warm-up
  • 3 x 150-count fast punches; straights, hooks, uppers
  • 5 minutes random number call-out combos
  • 7 sets x step-ups with high knees & ascending/descending punches (20/40/60/80/60/40/20 reps)
  • 5 mins reactive sparring (blocking and punching 
  • 7 sets x push shoulder block combined with ascending/descending punches (20/40/60/80/60/40/20 reps)
  • Abs
  • Bear crawls
