Was REALLY concerned about the shoulder yesterday, it was WAY BAD… However, today I got treatment of one of the best out there, Carl Fredrik at SPINEX. He is also working with the Swedish downhill team, and Anja Pärsson.
It’s much better, still a bit unstable. But my dear NIke pal Rod will help me out and tape me good for Saturdays classes.
Just back from SATS and training with my GET FIT team mates. WOW, the Nike get fit class will be CRAZY HARD. Hope you are ready for it, cuz our team is ON! Per, Maria, Emma, Anna and Me will make your legs shake for a few days….
My shoulder/scapula that is… And not during sparring, not even during a hardcore gym session. I was doing; yoga….
Hmm…. Memmo to self; don’t be competitive when you know U suck! I was pulling, bending, twisting and turning in 40′c heat. OFCOURSE I tried to do shit I can’t, and my shoulder said; ”I HATE YOU, AND I DON’T WANT TO PLAY ANYMORE!!”
Well, the scapula is not where it should be, but a good physiotherapist and some TAPE should fix it untill saturday…
Well, I guess U can’t be a warrior and have no battle wounds??? heheheheheheh…….
Been pushing quite hard the last months (my body that is). And now it’s just a week to go before the Nike BLAST, and it’s time to finalize the puzzle…
GOAL: Be in better shape (flexibility, strenght, explosive) than ever before. So I can rock BODYCOMBAT, pureTRAINING and Nike GET FIT at the BLAST.
Did I do it? Yes… Strength and explosive is way up! However, doing a lot of prepping for Nike Training for Runners and doing that ED. I noticed a trade off between being explosive and being flexible. It’s REALLY hard to be both at the same time. The more Bikram Yoga and martial arts I do, the more flexible I get, but also lose some plyometric power (explosiveness).
Right now, im more explosive than flexible… But a week of rest and yoga might change that!
So what now? this last 5 days will look like this:
Monday (BODYPUMP and stretch)
Tuesday (Massage, and Bikram)
Wednesday (2xBC and stretch, will try to sub my BP class away)
Saturday (THE NIKE BLAST)
Sunday (THE NIKE BLAST)
What do you think about this week? Do I need to TRAIN more??
Hmm…. Sunday afternoon, and I was supposed to a trial of my pureTRAINING class tonite with a few hardcore people, including Åsa and Soffan. However, I kinda ruptured something in an old injury earlier this week, so I could not do serius kick training and plyo (a BIG part of pureTRAINING).. So, I ended up subbing a BODYCOMBATⓇ class, and did a testdrive of the new release..
How it was? Hahahahaha…. The club had just started with BODYCOMBATⓇ, so about 50% had never ever tried it before. And my style of teaching can sometimes be a bit, how should I put it; INTENSE
BUT they enjoyed it, and alot of people came up after the class, loving the training!
BC47 is AWESOME!! Big kudos to Dan C for this one, but maybe I should not SCREAM the lyrics in the Muai Thai track out so loud? ”with my fist in you face, and your face on the floor…” but HEY, thats my style! So crew, prepare for a war at the Nike BLAST!
Can’t wait any longer! Next weekend will be SICK (not sick as in fever and sore throat) just SICK!!
Ofcourse Im talking about the Nike BLAST! Just emailed with my friend Josef Matthews and talked about what tracks to teach in BODYCOMBAT47… And I gotta say, 47 is probably the BEST release in a few years, absolutly LOVE it.. it’s mean, hard and fast just as ME!
Then pureTRAINING, my own class. Man, been waiting for this one. It all started in NYC this past summer, where I did a MMA-bootcamp class, HIIT-training class and Plyo-class…
Then I just mixed them into ONE CRAZY WORKOUT! Hope to C U guys there!
And, in the BIG ROOM me and the (FIT) Nike crew will do Nike GET FIT! I will do the part ” make yourself STRONG” and, I WILL!
Got a good question yesterday at a photoshoot, and it kind of got me thinking…
Question was; HOW MUCH DO YOU TRAIN REALLY??
And then I started thinking about it… it’s ALOT!! Between 14 and 20 hours/week I guess. Depending on what I focus at, goals etc… And that is WAY to much! (for some people) but NOT for me.
I have done sports since I could walk, lifting since I was 15 and doing Group Fitness since 16. And alvays been training HOURS and HOURS every week. Sometimes to much, and if you get over trained you FEEL IT! If you are a person with decent awarenes of your body, you can tell if you are doing to much training, and need to take a few days off. I feel it straight away if Im not getting enough sleep, or is cheating with food. Then I can’t train as much or as intense.
A good example of this way in NYC the past summer, I trained probably 25+ hours week in and week out. BUT, I did not work. I could just eat, speep and train, and do other FUN stuff!!
When Im stressed at work, traveling to much, sleeping bad, I can get over trained on just 3-5 h/week… Strange how the body works…
In the last week of prepping for the Nike BLAST now. And will this time rest the days before, take time off and sleep. WHY? cuz I want to be able to be at my MAX for all my classes!
