Summer is the perfect time of year for outdoor training. Many people
are even more motivated to train during the summer months, and are
looking for something different. Here are some ideas for outdoor summer
training for martial artists of all styles.Remember
* Stay hydrated! With warmer temperatures, the danger of becoming
dehydrated is always present. Always take plenty of water with you and
drink it often. * Wear sunscreen. This is something that many of us
would probably overlook, but you will sorry you did if you spend any
real time training outside. Protect your skin. Wear a good sunscreen
before you do any outdoor training. * Wear cool clothing. Don't
ever wear a sauna or sweat suit for outdoor training, especially when
the temperature starts to rise. Not only do you risk dehydrating, but
you risk raising your body temperature to dangerous levels. Wearing hot
or thick clothing does you no good in training. Any weight lost in this
way will just be water weight, and will quickly return. Get Your Feet Wet -
Training in water can give you a completely new training experience.
Try throwing a set of kicks or punches as fast as you can underwater.
As an example, pick four different kicks and four different punches,
and throw each 20 times per side, as fast as you can, while neck deep
in water. You will love the burn, get a great workout and over time
your techniques will become faster and stronger.If you live
near a large body of water such as a large lake or the ocean, you can
also try stance training. Stand about knee deep in the water, and
practice holding your stances for 30 seconds to a minute at a time,
maintaining your balance and stability against the pressure of the
waves. Spend Some Time At The ParkCardiovascular
endurance, otherwise known as your "wind" is extremely important to
being good martial artist. Spend some time at your neighborhood park.
Try jogging on the grass. Avoid jogging or running on cement, as it is
bad for the joints. If you are just starting out, set yourself a mark,
such as a particular tree. pole or trash can, jog out to it at a
moderate pace, and jog back. As your endurance improves, either
increase the distance of your marker or the number of times you go back
and forth.For martial artists with better endurance, try
running wind sprints. Pick a marker that is a moderate distance away,
and run to the mark as fast as you can. For an added challenge, as soon
as you get to your mark, drop down and do 25 pushups. Get up and sprint
back to your starting point. Drop to the grass and do 25 crunches. Rest
at this point for between 1 and 5 minutes, then repeat. You can also
mix these up some. Instead of doing pushups or crunches, you can do a
certain technique for 25 reps instead. Head To The BeachTraining
on the sand is great for improving stability and overall power. Try
sparring or shadow boxing on the beach. Stay away from crowds and try
to wear a martial arts school or gym shirt, or even your uniform if you
have to, so people don't become alarmed and think you are in a real
fight.Grapplers will get great benefit from training on sand as
well, provided you don't mind the mess and give yourself a good shampoo
afterwards. Practice bridging and turning on the sand. You can also
grapple with partners, but I would recommend wearing goggles, as silly
as that might sound, to avoid getting sand in each other's eyes.These
tips are a good start in getting the most out of your summer training.
Enjoy the good weather while you can, and get a great tan while
improving your skills. With a little creativity you can come up with
many other outdoor training ideas as well.
