Breaking Wood

The last time I went to Canada, the very nice people at Atlantic Canada Kyokushin-Kan Karate (ACKK) gave me three boards to break. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Wednesday KickASSery!!!!

My trainer Rich has me on a weight program and I see him twice a week for that. It is assistant work that is very heavy weight, well heavy for me. In the middle of the week, he has me doing a javorek complex that he designed for me. The weight for the Javorek should be a medium weight for you.

Javorek is a olympic trainer who devised a cardio/weight program that has proven itself again and again. The method to the madness is that all exersices are done in a superset, one right after the other without a break. When the circuit is done, you rest for 30 seconds to a minute and attack it again 3 to 4 times.
