I was asked to write a blog on the questions that I get asked most. One of these questions would be, "Why are your biceps so big?" If I were to answer this for the blog, however, it would look something like this:
"Why are your biceps so big?"
I eat and train. Frequently and a lot.
As easy as this question would be to do for my blog, I shall instead answer another question that I get asked.
Question: "What do you do in a typical training session?"
My training sessions always start off with warms ups whether it's at home, at a personal session or at a class, though these different times do involve different pieces of content and type of training.
My own personal training at home consists of the base revision and training required to practice. (This keeps what I learned in class fresh in my memory and helps to sharpen my skills. These base training pieces are single person exercises, such as kicks, break falls - which consists of me pretty much flinging myself to the ground and breaking my fall - and my form practice. I generally practice at least one empty hand form and one weapon form.
A personal session with my trainer and training partner, which happens anywhere up to three times a week, consists of revising two-person pieces such as coordination sets and free fight. These two-person exercises also consist of throwing each other, hitting pads and learning new parts of our weapon forms or doing two person exercises with the weapons.
Public classes are much the same layout as the personal sessions but the chosen exercises are tailored to each of the students' training and progress. I personally don't spend much time on my own training in these classes and tend to focus on helping teach others. While I do find I do most of my progression in my personal sessions or my at home training, going back over the earlier content is beneficial for me since I have to keep remembering the earlier content that I am teaching.
So that's what I do in a typical training session. If anyone has any other questions regarding anything I have mentioned in this blog or any other questions about martial arts or self-defence in general, feel free to ask in the comments below and myself or another trainer will reply.
