    Roadwork Idea

    I will be going on vacation next week. My boxing coach wants me to include time for roadwork to get my heat rate up. I will be visiting a friend who is in a wheelchair and also want to spend time with her. I started brainstorming. My friend has a nonpowered chair and I was thinking if she was okay with the idea, pushing her on a smooth surface while doing my roadwork. It would be a good workout for me as well as strength conditioning while we did something together. Would that be a good idea?

    Sounds kinda fun actually ... if you are pushing her you are gonna half to pass on the Rocky-esq head movements and shadow boxing . I am assuming she will know if it is safe to get her wheelchair up to high speeds .
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I'm going to shadowbox with weights separate. I think my friend will trust me and it will help build me up.

    Sounds good - and talking while running will help you control your breathing.

    Just defer to her judgment about the speed and the route you two are taking ( assuming she knows her way around wheelchair and town ) and it should be fine .

    Yeah I can see that. I bet coach would be interested to hear about my idea when I get back.

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Not literally on my toes. The weights are in my hands. I meant I have to do boxing footwork on the balls of my feet & ties while holding the weights in a defensive position. I then go down and punch with the weights and then duck like evading a headshot.
