I want it all!

Thursday, June 17, 2010

I want to do heavy weights. I want to learn more fighting. I want to lose weight. I want to be a strong, badass chick. Also, I want to eat pizza.

Right now, I can't figure out how to work heavy weights back into my workout rotation. I like the fighting focus my trainer is giving me for our sessions, but this means the real heavy lifting I have to do on my own.

I don't want to replace Krav Maga with it. I would probably be wrecked for my sessions if I did it the day before, and I would probably not be able to push myself to my limits if I do it the day after.

Though there are strength training exercises worked in to all my workouts, and the various drills I do in Krav and MMA are somewhere between cardio and strength, it's not quite the same as the heavy weights.

The soreness I feel now happens quickly and is less intense than the soreness I had from weights. I don't know what this means as far as my strength and muscle development. Will I still be maintaining my strength? Will I get weaker? The workouts now seem to be building a bit more endurance, improving my cardio function, agility, speed, and a little flexibility.

I am a brute force chick at heart. My strengths in fighting are hitting hard (when I do connect), and being sturdy. My weaknesses are everything else, which all my fight-related training is working towards improving.

I haven't done heavy weights since I stopped with my previous trainer, so I have no way to gauge where I am, unless I go try by myself. Can I still do the leg press weight I did? What about the lat pulldowns? I still haven't done an unassisted pull up or dip.

Oh well. Maybe that's something to try Friday night, if I don't do Krav Maga.

    Heh, I try not to waste knowledge. As far as weight training goes, I don't need a trainer, I just like the added safety and control of one. My current trainer is teaching me fighting, which I can't do alone.

    You have heart, but do you use your knowledge of things you have learned? It's good to have a trainer but don't depend on them. You are responsible for yourself and you are the one that will be reward or not rewarded by what you do. You have been blessed with power to think and decide. May God Bless you and guide you, Vic, Team Leader of SP "God's Family".
