Exhausted

Listen to your body, people say. I'm listening, and it says it's exhausted.

Wednesday night: Martial arts (sparring)
Thursday AM: Private training, new routine
Thursday night: Martial arts (core, cardio, strength)
Friday PM: Bag workout (Jersey City Fight Club)
Saturday noon: Core class again

I went to my trainer at the gym near work a week ago and said I wanted to change up the routine. I need my cardio training, and since the time I can put into training is limited, I have to get some in his routine too.

So Thursday I did 20 minutes on an elliptical machine, interval training, with him really pushing me on the high-resistance segments. Then I did a sequence of push-ups, pull-ups, crunches, dips and squats. The push-ups and dips are on a machine in the gym I've never used, which gives you an assist. The upper body stuff was exhausting, I did work to the point of failure.

Usually I don't do martial arts Thursday night, but I had to cancel the Tuesday night session, so I did two workouts in one day.

I think I'm really feeling the lack of a day off anywhere in this stretch. There's so much work I need to do before my Christmas vacation that it's hard to get gym time in at work, which throws my schedule off.

Hi Bob, I was wondering if you could suggest any exercises that would help improve standing up from a kneeling position. We have so many katas that transition from kneeling on one knee to standing in seisan. I have been doing lunges, working with a step and theraband but still find this motion difficult. Thanks for your help!

Hi, Michele,

Have you tried using the theraband attached to both your ankles or feet while you're doing lunges? Also, Everlast, the boxing equipment company, sells an elastic band with velcro called "Fast Feet" (http://store.everlastboxing.com) so you don't have to tie the bands to your feet.

Otherwise, I'd check with a physical therapist of gym trainer, but it sounds to me like you're doing what you need to do. It may just take time.

Good luck, Michele!
