Today I had a good stretching session and a really good practice session. On top of it all I remembered to do free weight training.
One thing I do before I start stretching is I spin in circles. I am doing this to improve by equilibrium. I found that I would get dizzy too quickly. I started out with about five spins and now up to twenty plus. I call this my "spin training", lol. Once I am dizzy I go into the splits. From there I do stretches that involve being on the floor. I finish up with stretches best done standing. About two days ago I noticed my flexibility has improved.
Practice involved footwork followed by unarmed blocks against blows-dagger or otherwise. I practiced fendente, mandritto and reverso dagger strikes right and left handed. My left hand is weak on these. I don't know why I haven't been doing these left handed before this. Sword training started with one handed techniques, left and right handed. Then onto two handed guards and strikes.
I remembered to train with my free weights tonight!
