CRUNCH! Crash! Bang! cabal fang Training Involution #92
- Crunch through a hike. Cover two miles with a weighted pack (#20, #40 or #60 by size/ability). Finish up with 100 Squats before you drop the pack.
- Crash into some combos. 7 x 2:00/1:00. Start each combo with a hard lead palm, a hard falling jab, or a forearm cram. Finish each one with some kind of crash — a shoulder-slam, body lock, bear hug, bulldog, single or double-leg take-down, etc. If you have a partner, take turns exchanging combos. No partner? Use a heavy bag. No heavy bag? Shadowbox. If working solo, spend your 1:00 breaks doing as many Sit-out Push-ups as you can, taking as few 12-count breaks as you need to survive.
- Bang out a conditioning run. CR10F Prisoner-style (hands behind your head).
- Slice through your week. While cooling down, think of a fumble you made in the last week, something you were involved in that went down awkwardly, inelegantly or uncomfortably. How could you have been more elegant? Then assume meditation posture, close eyes and regulate breathing and visualize the coming week. See yourself acting with grace and fluidity, slicing through your week like a hawk through the air. Don’t fantasize! Imagine real situations on the actual horizon and really consider how you will need to behave in order to cut through your week. When you’re done, record your thoughts and inspirations in your training journal and make notes on your To-Do list so you don’t forget.
