This month’s Cabal Fang focuses are Self-Defense vs. Weapons — with a touch of offense as well — and “The Quill” (journaling). Try to make some kind of journal entry every single day this month, even if it’s only one sentence.
Journals and Logs: Training Involution #139
- Complete this month’s log constitutional. No partner? No log? No problem! Use a dumbbell instead of a log (I chose a #30). Do not put the dumbbell down unless you’re doing an exercise that requires you to do so. Rack the dumbbell two-handed and perform Log Press (25 full), Log Squats (25), Log Hops (25 full ), Log Sit-Ups (25), Log Lunges (50), Log A-Lifts (25) and Log Curb Touches (100). See video below.
- Choose your weapon and start attacking. Choose the blunt weapon of your choice — wooden knife, walking stick, tactical pen, whatever you prefer — and set a timer for 10 mins. See how many attacks you can launch before the timer beeps. Switch hands every hundred strikes or so. I chose walking stick and completed 920 strikes.
- Star of Ishtar form 25 times. If you don’t know the form get the Cabal Fang Study Course and read up.
Many thanks for the tutorial. I don’t have a log so I was wondering how I might modify the constitutional. Good thing it can be done indoors too, since we’re digging out from under about a foot of snow here in St. Louis! Feel better … ’tis the season for colds, etc. unfortunately.
You are welcome! I realized last month that I haven’t always done a good job of presenting solo alternatives, so I resolved to do better. You can’t build fraternity unless everyone can play the game, right? As to getting well, that needs to happen fast. I get sick about once every 5 years. And when I do, I’m such a big, miserable, grumpy, little baby!
