Post Workout Review

Well, this is a very post workout review... its like two hours later but I still wanted to do this. Today I worked out later and it was a very short workout only 1 hour long. I cut out a lot of stuff today because mentally I wasn't ready for a full blown workout. But you have to do something every day even if its go for 30-60 minutes. As long as you go everyday you will make it a routine.

Stretch:
I really skipped out on stretching today because these two people were acting weird in the stretching area.

Toe Touches
Leg on the Bar
Lunges
3 Sets of Pushups 20, 40, 30
Shoulder stretches

Arms:
Today was my arm focus. I felt good after doing all of this as my legs are the "dominant" muscle on my body at this point. But I won't forget my legs and core.

Dumb bell Curls 2x10 Struggled Today
Chest Press 3x10 Huge New Max
Dips 3x10
Uneven Bar Curls 3x10 New Addition
Bench Press 3x 10,7,5 New Max

Core:
Always do core. Even a little bit. Today was a little bit.

Sit Ups (Straight Back, Crunches) 2x20

Then I went to Muay Thai Class after one hour of rest. The class went great and we followed our normal schedule of that. More teeps, kicks, punches, and knees. So many knees...

Came home, showered, drank protein shake and ate food. It was really a nice workout. About 2 hours of working out today. So... that's it bros.

February 28th - My Fourth Week in a Kung Fu School

A Tired Me eating my Friday Chocolate Drinking Hot (Powdered) Milk Afternoon Thoughts Man, Fridays are always a great way to wind down as it is just the perfect ending to a hard week's training. We have the Morning Tai Chi class (that I don't go to), breakfast, power stretching and then forms. After a usually delicious lunch we move on to cleaning the whole school making it, and ourselves, ready for a new week. But before I get to today, let me talk about yesterday. Thursday was interesting as I realized my knee was getting better but I wasn't pushing it too hard. I wanted it to heal fully. I could jog for a little bit but I just walked the morning 2km. Then came Qi Gong (气功) class taught by Master Yan. We learned/reviewed Yi Jin Jing (易筋经) which I realized I had forgotten almost everything but luckily "The Ten Tiger" Shilat and Master Yan were willing to explain some of the moves to me. So thanks! We helped build 3 out of the 4 stone tables there

January 22nd - Travelling in Shanghai

My Thoughts 🤔 我的想法 I've finally arrived in Shanghai. After a long journey from Minnesota to Dallas and finally to Shanghai, I made it. No flight delays, no bad weather, just a simple day of flying. The hotel that I stayed at was pretty good. I tested my Chinese by trying to check-in and out using only Chinese with a little success but I didn't do that well. I did test myself one other time and that was to order breakfast today! This I did really well and I even understood the hotel staff on the phone, which was surprising. I have felt weird coming back to China. A few things happened that made me think, "Yup, I'm really back in China". People staring at me, check! The crowded metro stations and sidewalks, check! People talking about me in Chinese because they think I don't understand, check! People arguing on the metro over dumb things, check! Just so many things that make me realize, no, re-realize how different life is here and in America. I'

May 19th - News

Me, Flying Lots of News Quite a lot is changing at Maling Kung Fu School in the next few weeks. Master Ning, our Tai Chi/Baji Quan teacher, is leaving the school to go home and "study more" but, from his own mouth, he said there isn't enough students at the school and he doesn't know if he'll come back. Then, next week Master Yan is going to be helping the kid summer school owned by headmaster Bao. He said once the classes start up he will be gone for 2-3 months. This means we lose a valuable Sanda coach and Xing Yi Quan master... which leaves us with Master Peng and Headmaster Bao. That's not all! Next week will be the last week for two classmates, Shilat and Terina, so our number is shrinking to seven students in total. From what I've heard, Master Bao will be taking over Sanda and Tai Chi classes while Master Peng will teach us Basics and Forms. Power Stretching and Power Tr
