Let the Musings Begin

I have been pondering my own conditioning routine, which is basically nill, lately. I have a deep dislike for running, and spent the last year working one full and two part time jobs, and still tried to spend time with my wife and kids(3). So, I am very out of shape right now, the future is looking better though, working less, starting back at school in the fall, after ten years of being on the other side of the podium, and posting my life(at least this part) for everyone to see.

I will begin posting "Workout of the Week"s on Sunday. I feel that focusing on one set of skills/strength/stretching/whatever for a week helps you hone your abilities and get comfortable with the routine just in time to change it and keep you body guessing. Some of them will be conditioning(both static and dynamic) others may be stretching, or patterns of movement, but all will be useful at developing good physical skills for fighting or just about anything else. I will also try to use the simplest terms possible to describe things. Please don't get upset if I rephrase an eccentric martial arts or yoga term, I'm just trying to make it easier for people to understand.


  1. Yeah! Your first post is great. Love you and I hope that you get tons of followers!

  2. Oooh - and I'm your first follower too!

  3. All four of my children are in Taekowndo and my oldest two just received their 1st Degree Black belts. I need to catch up and I think this sounds like a lot of fun. I get bored easy, so the idea of muscle confusion and "keeping my body guessing", sounds great.

  4. Thanks Stephen, and I will forward your blog to some ppl I know into the martial arts as well... ;-))
