    What exactly do you do on a speed bag for Hyung training? Or is it kinda' just the same work as you would see in a normal boxing gym?

    Same as you would see in a boxing gym, hyung training was separate, although proper form is important in speed bag training.

    Back issues have kept me from training and it looks as though I'll Be out for some time. Still dieting, and will do what I can to stay in shape. Bag work and light MA training. Need to get back in to see the doctor, I had x-ray's done a few weeks ago but no report as of yet.

    Emailed my Doc, he said minimal arthritis in my lower back, said rest and strengthening the muscles around the spine should help, MA training is probably making it worse. I will start a core training program next week. I have a MA event this weekend but I'm only doing a small demo and the rest will be administrative.

    I would recommend finding a sports physio or osteopath, or other knowledgeable professional who can advise you as regards to your exercise choice and whether or not you can train your martial arts. Seeing someone who understands the pressures that MAs put on injuries has made a huge difference to my recovery.

    Ok did the MA event, was a huge success, my back was killing me by the end, however since then I have been doing some minimal back stretches and it seems to be working. I can sleep through the night without pain. I will keep the stretching program going until I feel I can get back to some training, I have another MA event at the end of Feb. so I must get well so I can train.

    Well I managed to not train for two day's woo hoo! So I tested my back last night on some hyung practice, did all my weapons forms, and a few higher level forms. Felt ok I didn't push myself concentrated on technique and proper body position. About 40 minutes, slept fine a little sore at stretching this morning. I'm icing my back every night that seems to help the pain. Slow and steady. I'm down to 182lbs so with the lack of hard training I feel that's a good weight loss 11lbs so far.

    Back injuries are a horrible thing, give it time. Any strengthening work you can do on it?

    I've been dealing with back issues since I was in my teens, the type of heavy work I did when younger and not lifting properly has IMO put me in the predicament I'm in now. My doctor suggested core strengthening exercises, however at the present anything that I do affects my back. The stretching and ice has helped tremendously so that's good news, my fear was that something major was wrong, luckily it seems that's not the case. I'm confident that I can fix the muscle problem with stretching and core exercises, however for now I'm going to stick with the stretching until the pain subsides then I'm going to focus on my core to strengthen the muscles to support my spine.

    I appreciate your concerns and am open to any suggestions as to what you've experienced, as I know Mitch and Frodo have had similar issues.

    Thanks Again

    My advice would be to get a professional to have a look at your back. If it's muscular and you have trigger point issues going on then someone who knows about these things (not a GP) can make a real difference to your recovery. Yes, it may end up costing you money, but if the end result it that you get back to doing stuff you love, it's money well spent (IMO). The problem with just stretching and doing core exercises is that if you're not sure what the actually problem or, more likely, problems are then you could end up making the imbalances worse.

    Various strength bands IDK what strength actually, first time with them, I was invited to a morning workout with a local fitness coach, we're thinking about teaming up for a community fitness project. Colors were yellow, blue, and black they went up consecutively in strength.

    Yes we did the pull aparts, just forgot to log them.

    Thanks for the article

    Edit: the ones we used were cords not bands, don't know if there's a difference, any thoughts on that?

    If you find out the maker of the band you can probably check their website for the strength rating.
