Conditioning exercises after every workout. If you have a little bit of energy then go for the kill. You must feel like you need to crawl out of the gym; go as hard as you can in every workout. That's the only way you can break into the next level. Finished an intense workout that included a lot of fighting with 350 skipping knees. The first two clips are straight knees where I went for 100 (50 each side) - they tested my #endurance and were slower and weaker, the last clip is side knees which used a twist in my body with each knee, they had more #power and shorter before I needed a break and felt cramps all over my body. Too many muscles working at the same time. It's a great #cardio exercise, great way to torch fat, great way to condition your calves, abs, knees and most importantly your mind. Push push push. No excuses. Think about the goal. Think about your arms raised. Think about the title. Think about the glory. Think about the achievement and the feeling of accomplishing one of the greatest feats ever. No food. No water. No sleep. No problem. #Driven by #Ambition. A #Palestinian Bull. #teampalestine#palestine

Third day of Ramadan and no signs of slowing down. If anything, I've been ramping up the pressure to get more out of every workout. Unfortunately, my body can't keep up with my mind's objectives. Pad work has proven to be difficult for me and I just don't have enough power. So we changed things up today, did 2 rounds of pad work to warm up and then went for a 20min sparring session (4 rounds, 5 mins each). I still didn't have power but I was able to focus on technique, evading shots, blocking and countering. Noticed an improvement in my overall confidence level, managed to tag Mr @longubon several times. This would be the first time I land hits to his face. A big moment for me and a sign that all the hard work is paying off. The rounds were so heated that the camera dropped in all of them unfortunately and so I have little footage to share. That being said, he was on fire and unleashing hooks and kicks with a lot of force. The first few got the alarm bells ringing in my head and I may have seen some ๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ•Š flying by, but that really forced my body to snap out of it's fatigued state and get moving. He kept the pressure on me for 20 mins straight and really landed some powerful kicks and hooks to my body and face. I am happy as I feel I handled myself well in this heated exchange and I even got his acknowledgement on a job well done for standing tall and defending my ground, as well as landing some shots (was about time I made him respect me - been his punching bag for too long ๐Ÿ˜…). That last punch is a jab that landed straight on his chin and he was surprised, of course took the chance to gloat / celebrate this achievement before I found myself in a corner taking a beating...#levelup#smallwins#progress

Can't wait for the weekend to come already - make my way down to Dubai for my weekly session w/ @boxiq to work on my striking skills with my arms. Still adjusting to the whole working out while fasting but loving the routine & loving having my evening to relax after food (as opposed to working out on a full stomach). In desperate need of electrolytes though as my body was cramping HARD today!

A nice exercise to help get your timing right with knees. The bag moving mimics an opponent coming forward / backward and requires you to charge forward and knee. Timing is everything.

Heavy Bag Workout - freestyle using arms & legs. Use combinations and try to hit with as much power as possible. Had a hard time with my kicks as both shins are bruised and it was painful but this is a great way to condition them.

Bag Workout 2: Focus on the ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป. Hit hard, hit frequent & keep moving. Try to think of how your body is meant to be moving with each hit and do not just hit for the sake of hitting. This is the process of hard wiring the brain for the right technique. This builds up your stamina and endurance as well. Keep your hands up at all time. This is something I still struggle with and failure to fix that will result in me being knocked out one day. It's a learning curve so film yourself, identify the gaps in your game and then take necessary steps to fix it. Hard to believe that my body had all this energy when I thought I was tired from fasting. This goes to show exactly how the far the right mindset will take you.

The Holy Month of Ramadan has started; another year where we get the opportunity to reflect inwards and dedicate more time to our spirituality and perhaps work on some of our religious aspirations. Working hours are reduced, and we all get lazy, sleeping many hours a day, hungry, thirsty and if your like me, then you spend a lot of time surfing the net looking at your favourite dishes and dreaming about what it would be like to eat them. I had my first workout in this holy month while fasting today and I'd like to share a few points: a) it was a mission to convince myself to go b) I had a headache most of the time c) I was tired during the warm up and second guessed myself and my objectives for the day d) I pushed through all the negative thoughts and forced my body to tap into the fat for energy e) I had a great workout f)I was dripping sweat the entire time f) I didn't want to leave - I was so into my workout that all of a sudden I kept delaying when I should leave (I arrived home after it was time to eat!). While everyone should listen to their body and act accordingly, I would strongly recommend that you place good habits / routines for this month from now, as they will be the ones that will drive you for the next 4 weeks. Do not fall into the temptation of excuses, laziness and over eating; this is a blessed month and can be a month of gains as well.

"I'm going to pick the world up and drop it on your f-ing head" - @lilwayneofficial_ . Exactly the kind of music I needed to hear on my first pre iftar workout on the first day of Ramadan. It was a short and sweet workout today that revolved around the bags. I'll be sharing the different exercises I did, this one was about timing, coordination and focused on legs and elbows. The ability to reach your opponents neck / face and unload on him with power as he moves is a valuable asset to masterโ˜ ๏ธ.

Laying in bed with one thing in mind.

Free flow padwork w/ my man @boxiq. Beautiful setting by the sea, the heat an excellent addition to make the sessions harder as well. Fine tuning my boxing skills and already seeing a major difference in my Muay Thai game.

38 Degrees - working on my foot movement in the outdoors. I love Dubai. Last day before Ramadan and the morning workouts. Thank you @boxiq for a fantastic session; happy to have you on my team. Watch me as I make my way to the top ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป

The Low Kick: take a forward diagonal step into the lead leg and twist your body (to generate momentum) and follow with the right kick into the thigh (aiming for the part above the knee that has the least muscle for protection). The more you bend your lead leg the more you can twist the more the power - as you can see from the picture, that's easier said the done - 84KGs of pure intensity pivoting on one leg (imagine how many stabilizing muscles are working to support this move!). As you shift forward into your lead leg, you leave the center line and save yourself from a counter attack (jab / punch). I've seen fights won based on the low kick alone. It is REALLY painful. A few of those will get you limping almost instantly. Few days back, I was "blessed" with receiving two of those, without @longubon having shin guards on and at about 40% power. It hurt. A LOT. The sound of shin on quad alone gets you queasy, followed by a sensation of fire as your neurons transmit a wave of pain from your quad to your brain and right back into your quad within split seconds. Just as you recuperate and continue, another one lands and the process repeats itself. Psychological & Physical warfare at its finest.The funny thing was I saw them coming but was too scared to check his kicks haha, I thought better feel it on the quad than the shin ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜….
