    No, not bad at all by any means.

    TRAINING:
    Boxing(3min rounds)
    3 rounds jump rope
    3 rounds shadow boxing
    2 rounds heavy bag

    (2min rounds)
    1 round heavy bag
    2 rounds precision bag-it kind of looks like a heavy bag, but it's real thin
    1 round heavy bag
    7 rounds sparring

    Blah, Blah, Blah...Felt good. Some mostly light sparring against 3 different feller's. The one is a big, strong kid who is starting to get the hang of things. So during our second round I gave him a couple of short bursts of more intense sparring. Gotta' test/push these guys every once in a while.

    Think I'm going to get me a real jump rope and start messing around some. Never really tried doing anthing too tricky. Think it would be fun, and it looks really cool too. lol

    That's the idea. Do at least a little something each day. Even if I don't feel like it, or have much time.

    TRAINING:
    Boxing(3min rounds)
    3 rounds jump rope
    3 rounds shadow boxing
    2 rounds speed bag
    2 rounds precision bag
    8 rounds sparring

    Blah, Blah, Blah...Again, sparring was just me helping kids figure out the sweet science. I'm sort of like a cross between focus mitts and out-n-out sparring. We're sparring, but I'm coaching them along the way. We start out just sparring. Then coach, or I, will notice something and tell them what to do, or look for in that situation. I'll let them practice it a few times slower, then at speed. It helps people when they can actually see the situation, rather than trying to visualize it like when hitting the mitts, or heavy bag, or shadow boxing.
