I'm at MA class 1.5-2.5 hours a day, 3-4 days a week. I decided that in class is the best time to focus on learning technique and applications and such, and have dedicated my at home training time mostly to physical training. So I train the three fitness benchmarks, strength, stamina, and flexibility.
Since I had to get rid of my weights due to space constraints, I do bodyweight workouts now. Pushups, handstand pushups, reverse pushups, v-ups and squats.
In the morning I run about a mile, in intervals as I learned them from a Bruce Lee book... 1 minute jogging, sprint for as long and hard as you can, 1 minute walking, repeat.
I'm also considering adding a routine of about 900 punches and 600 kicks against a heavy bag, partly for stamina, and partly because for technique.
Well duh, stretching about every muscle group, etc.
Basically my question is, do you guys agree that my at home training should primarily focus on physical training, or should I focus on other things as well? And also, if anyone has good workouts, I'd love to hear your advice. Thanks.
The "bottle rocket" principle is a highly dangerous one; if he scoots out too aggressively his body may go shooting out like a champaign cork and go flying into the audience, sans right arm, leaving a gingerbread man-shaped hole in the wall. -- Boyd
