Punching Bag
« on: September 03, 2009, 10:51:35 pm »
Today was the first punching bag workout I've had since before I injured my shoulder. Been 9 long months of rest & rehab, and it held up GREAT to the bag workout. Tomorrow morning wil be the real test (do I wake up with a sore shoulder or worse), but for now it seems to be doing fine.

Five 3 minute rounds was all I did, and on a small heavy bag (35 pounds) rather than my 70 pound bag (which I gave to a friend). One minute rest between rounds. Took about 20 minutes, the I did a few sets of abs & extra cardio.

Not surprisingly, I was pretty flat-footed after round one, despite all the cardio over the past few months (including running stairs - yesterdays stairs were 1100 [550 up & 550 down]).

I also did my first sparring session in a year last weekend. One short round of boxing. Light contact all padded up. Timing and distancing is WAY off, but that'll come back soon enough.

Feeling good. After workout snack was 6 large raw oysters!

Gotta love the bag work ;-)

Man I have eaten raw oyesters twice this last week and both times I woke up so horny it was rediculous. I used to think the aphrodisiac thing was wishful thinking but not anymore, I honestly wasn't expecting this effect but it is real.

Congrats man.Shadow box everytime you get the chance. It'll probably help with your shoulder DOMS(delay onset muscle sorness) & help keep your form & footwork up to par.

Aaaarrgghh!!

Now i have to buy a new bag. My Everlast (product endorsement alert!) has made it for 20 years...but it finally gave up the ghost. The rings have finally started to pull away from the bag.

I wanted another light bag (35-40 pounds) but the lightest I can find is 70 pounds. I guess I'm off to the store later this week....

For now, shadow-boxing.

BTW: Dead Ramones? Best name since Dead Kennedys! You should use it for a punk rock band!

...but it finally gave up the ghost.

Only time I've heard that saying apart from in the song 'The Suffering' by 'Coheed and Cambria'.

I'll have to listen to the song.

Yeah, it's an old expression. I used to hear it as a kid. Not sure where it came from.

So how is the shoulder??

I had extensive ligament damage after a very hard motorcycle crash Sept 25th 2009. Shoulder is just starting to feel better now after 8 months. Im hoping its near as good as new within the next month or two so I can start bench pressing and hitting the heavy bag again.

    Are live oysters common food for boxers, in general?

The shoulder is doing much better - thanx!

I can't speak for boxers, but....no, I haven't seen oysters as a staple with my friends who embrace combat sports.
