So a bit about myself, first. I've been on this forum for quite some time, probably over 10 years now, and have been a fan of sasuke for longer. I sort of fell in and out of training during my college years but now I feel like I'm back. Currently living on Guam and there aren't so many opportunities to pursue Ninja Warrior so I figured I'd make this thread to try and connect a little more, and get some feedback, even though I know these training boards aren't so active.
I recently made an instagram and have begun to post some clips on it. www.instagram.com/royk671/ (I don't have many followers lol please feel free to follow)
For my training, I have been focusing on building strength using mostly weights and explosive movements. If anyone wants I can go way more in depth on how I structure the workouts, training, as well as frequency, or any question about training really, and I can provide clips on how I do a specific exercise. Finger strength is a huge part of my routine and I believe incorporating bouldering strength exercises has been a big part of my improvement.
As for obstacles, in my back yard, I have been able to recreate different variations of obstacles like the steps, in order to work on my footwork. I have a shin cliffhanger replica I train on, and I should have a vertical limit soon.
I will try to keep this updated with my training progress every two weeks or month. The main goal is sasuke, and then ninja warrior.
Last few weeks I've had a bit of an oblique strain so I haven't done any intense training at all. I uploaded some front lever/ one arm pullup work from before the injury to my instagram. I should be able to resume next week.
My main weekly training routine has looked like this:
Monday: obstacles Tuesday: explosive leg work, conditioning Wednesday: strength (weights) Thursday: complete rest, or either sprinting or conditioning Friday: obstacles Saturday: strength (weights), explosive leg work Sunday: rest
Using this schedule I have managed to avoid fatigue because the major muscle groups have been mostly split up with a day in between to do something else. Despite that, there is still a lot of upper body hanging and pulling throughout the week. For example, even though Friday and Saturday are back to back, I'd be working on the cliffhanger Friday (which involves hanging, pulling, and finger strength), and on Saturday I get to do something like handstand pushups or shoulder press.
Just thought I should update this since I said about two weeks to a month. Maybe I should get a blog or something for this stuff.
