Sometimes you just don’t have enough time (or the desire) to do a full workout. Yet, you know you need to do something.
This is the perfect time to do the 1 Technique + 1 Conditioning Drill Workout.
Here’s how it works:
On the day of your workout, you decide which technique you need to work on most.
For this first example, let’s say you are going to work on a “leaping-in jab.”
For the technique itself, you can use the focus mitt or a heavy bag as the target.
For the conditioning, you can do a plyometric type of drill where you leap forward and throw a small medicine ball at the wall.
Since the jab requires a glove for training, you likely won’t want to superset (go back-and-forth) between the two exercises. It would take too long to switch. Instead, you can do the technique first, then the conditioning drill. We suggest doing southpaw and orthodox for a balanced workout.
You can do 3-5 rounds of each movement.
In example 2, you can work on the “head kick.”
The technique can be drilled on Thai pads of a heavy bag.
For the conditioning drill, you can do box jumps.
These two movements can be done back and forth for 3-5 rounds.
You can think of many different combinations for whichever technique or art you want to refine.
Of course, you can do several of these combos back-to-back for a complete 1-hour workout. We just wanted to give you some ideas of what you can do when you have a short amount of time, or just want a quick workout.
That’s it for now.
