    Day 2 - Headhunter

    - Level I

    Jump Rope 5 rounds of 1 minute each

    Yep, Headhunter was also one of the reasons I had been putting Dragon Week for as long as I did...and I have to say, it pretty much lived up to what I had expected it to be. One way ticket to the grave. I was pretty close to calling for a stretcher after finishing it on level I.

      Day 3 - Close Contact

      - Level II

      Jump Rope: 3 rounds of 2 minutes each
      Handstands - 90 seconds
      Pull-ups in one go: 25

      This was quite alright, although, I have to admit, my hamstrings were teasing that they were starting to feel the after effects of Headhunter.

            Thanks noname ,
            hehe, yeah I was quite surprised with my result there too. Think I was in the zoneBut after that, my arms were pretty much useless.
            burpees remain the bane of my existence though

            As for globe jumps:
            - standing up straight,
            - touch your toes
            - jump to the right
            - touch your toes
            - jump backwards
            - touch your toes
            - jump to the left
            - touch your toes
            - jump forward
            = 1 rep

            so you're pretty much jumping in a square( or in this case, around the world!)

              Day 5 - Sidekicks Practice

              - Level II

              Jump Rope: 3 rounds of 2 minutes each
              Handstands - 90 seconds
              Meditation - 10 minutes
              Pull-ups in one go(close grip): 22

              This was pretty good session, those sidekicks really worked my lower back and engaged the glutes though.

              Free Bootcamp:
              30 seconds each:
              - Lunge pulse - 3 sets per side
              - Plie Squat Pulse - 3 sets
              - Split Lunge rotations - 2 sets per side
              - Plyo Push-ups
              - Wide grip Push-ups

              4 sets of 4 push-ups followed by 4 count side plank
              4 sets of 4 count push-ups

              30 seconds each:
              - Cross punch leg scissors
              - Leg scissors
              - Star out sit-ups
              Bootcamp core workout

              So it was the last day of this type of session(strength/recovery) for the free bootcamp, since from next week onwards, its only going to be Mondays and Wednesdays, no more Thursdays. Kind of a bummer, but she mentioned that the intensity and length of the 2 days will be increased, so we shall see what’s in store, come next week!

                Day 6 - Raid

                - Level II
                Jump Rope: 5 rounds 1 minute each
                Handstands - 90 seconds
                Meditation - 10 minutes
                Chin-ups in one go: 25

                Another good session, it had me rather sweaty at the fourth set though. But the flow was pretty good.
                Have been fortunate enough to have seen this movie fairly recently though; good stuff, especially that final fight scene! Suppose one could mention Ong Bak in the same breath.
                Still have to make plans to see the sequel though.

                Pull-ups in one go: 23
                5K Walk
                Meditation - 10 minutes

                Was a little cramped for time today, so instead of having to rush through the last day of Dragon Week, I figured I’d take a slight detour, and opted to do my own little Fighter’s HIIT. It’s quick and dirty and get the job done! Jump rope is really such a nice thing to use, in that regard.

                Day 7 - Fist Of Fury

                - Level II
                Jump Rope - 3 round of 2 minutes each
                Handstands - 90 seconds
                Chin-ups in one go(parallel grip): 26
                Meditation - 10 minutes




                I rather enjoyed this one, it’s quite taxing on the shoulder though, since fatigue was already setting in on the second set, but it also had a real nice flow, especially the elbow to knifehand one!
                And with that, my stint in Dragon Week comes to an end. Have to say overall it was actually pretty good, with the obvious exception of Headhunter that’s just pure murder!!

                      Free Bootcamp:
                      So we've started with a new advanced class with the free bootcamp this year, having lost the Thursday sessions.

                      Advanced class:
                      5 sets:

                      Ladder circuit:
                      start with:
                      - 10 plank walk-outs
                      - 1 burpee
                      repeat until :
                      - 1 plank walk-out
                      - 10 burpees

                          Gray Jedi - Day One - The First Ascent

                          - Clapping Push-ups until failure(Force Push): 23,13,10
                          - Hollow Hold 3 sets, 30 seconds each
                          - Cossack squats, holding staff in front - 3 sets 20 reps
                          - Slow Climbers - 100
                          - Beam Dead Hang 4 sets, move 3 reps left, move 3 reps right
                          - One Arm Beam Dead Hang(Force Grip) - 10 seconds per arm

                          Staff Training:
                          - Bender - Level I

                          Jump Rope : 5 rounds 1 minute each

                          Meditation - 10 minutes

                          Welp, since Carbon & Dust got moved back further again, and I just finished up with Dragon Week, I thought it would be good to have a little change of pace again, and even dive into something of my own ridiculous devices, to help tie over until Carbon & Dust launches.
                          Thus a stint training as a gray Jedi!

                          There must be both dark and light. I will do what I must to keep the balance

                          As hoped and expected, it ended up putting me through the ringer.
                          Especially the ascent specific movements (i.e: slow climbers + Beam dead hangs)

                            All that jumping...this was a sweat session!
                            The beam work is really putting the palms of my hands through the ringer. If this keeps up, it’s gonna be quite calloused pretty soon. Not quite sure if I want them to feel like sandpaper.

                            Free Bootcamp:
                            Advanced class:

                            - 5 burpees

                            Normal class:
                            Form rows of 20 people, everyone gets down to a plank, and you pass a water bottle to each other, while remaining in the plank position. When the bottle gets to the end of the row, everyone does 2 burpees, back to plank position, and the bottle gets passed back to the other end of the row, then everyone does 4 burpees. Repeat until you get to 8 burpees.

                            In groups of 2 for 3 minutes:
                            - 5 hi-five push-ups

                            - 5 low-five squats
                            - 50m run

                            - 6 burpees jumping over partner who is in elbow plank position
                            - 50m run
                            - switch who does what

                            On your own:
                            3 minutes:

                                Jump Rope: 5 rounds, 1 minute each
                                Handstands - 90 seconds

                                Have a feeling I’m gonna have to increase the reps with the dead hang moves. My palms appear to be getting used to gripping the beam. Still kind of painful having to grip a wooden beam( as opposed to a bar), to carry your entire body weight, but I have a feeling in the long run, there’s definitely benefits to be reaped. Had to focus to ignore my legs and arms screaming with those horse stances though
