I've been wanting to get back into working out more, and back into martial arts in particular. I picked up a pair of eskrima and a pair of practice and a pair of real nunchucks and a practice sword and knife and some pads over the weekend.
The last night I was in Academy and decided to pick up a BOB (Body Opponent Bag), it's basically a free-standing kicking and punching bag except that it's a man, from the torso up with all the normal human features so that you can practive different strikes and stuff. You put water or sand in the base to keep him in one place whilst you beat on him...
I gave it a good workout last night and discovered that I have absolutely no upper body strength. My lower body is still fine, but the upper body strength is gone, so I'll need to figure out a way to fix that.
Anyone else own one of these or somthing like it? Have any tips or good workout recommendations? I'm wondering how durable it is, if I can use the sticks and stuff on 'him'.
