Today was an overall good day! Training wise and work wise 🙂
Started the day out by a boxing session with Johnny De Lima. It’s always a good way to start the day, and it’s never too hard, so there was energy left for more training after lunch. Boxing basically consisted of bagwork, shadow and 2 on 2 drills – finished off by 200 abs, 100 back and 50 push ups.

* Wall Squats (hold 1 minute) (4 sets)+

Plyometric push up with clap
Due to my injured wrist, I chose not to do the to first DB drills. Instead I did 1 x 5 Clean & Press with 7.5 kg DB and 6 x5 10 kg DB. (One arm at the time)
Also for the depth plyometric push ups, I had to revise the drill, and instead doing 16 fast push-ups. My 1 arm DB bench press was done with 10 kg DB. As long as my wrist are fragile, I rather stay training with little or no weight, than go crazy in kilo-… but have to admit, it’s a bit boring thou.
Wall squats and squat jumps are easy peasy (sort of). I do it with my class in Fitness.dk: All girls and all good and strong!! No problems in that. For my later afternoon training, I had to teach the girls class in Siam. I’ve started the class out on a low-level, but will slowly drive them up. Today we did about 100 push ups throughout the class. I bet, none of them would think, they could ever do this.

Evening ended at Eurosport, commentating this years second Fight Club! Fantastic evening, with pure awesomeness: Andy Souwer vs Masato from Dynamite event, and four fights from the awesome SLAMM 6, Holland vs Thailand.
Excellent fights – and what a pleasure to be showing pure muay thai fights on Eurosport.
And so explosive cocktail: The dutch style vs thai style. A viewing pleasure for all fight fans. Yodsenklai – Bourdif was main fight – and so cool. Yodsenklai came in with these small uppercut elbows, that just cut up between Bourdifs guards. Ring Generalship!!
