You may have heard the term athletes sometimes call “the zone.” When athletes find their “zone” it can seem like somehow they were able to channel some sort of random mental state in which time slows and every distraction falls away like melted butter. In reality, the zone often derives from consistent hours, weeks and even years of practice and training. Whether you are a fitness aficionado, preparing to get into the ring with intense Mixed Martial Art training, or just looking to improve your self-defense techniques, focus pad training is a great way to get a killer workout, find your zone and help you find that winning flow.
One of the most efficient techniques for improving concentration, technique and conditioning is to incorporate focus pad training into an exercise regimen. Kicking and striking pads at different levels using a variety of combinations can sharpen both mental and physical reflexes. However, do not be fooled. Focus pad training is challenging and just like the definition of focus, you will develop close and narrow attention to your present moment. Whether you use a friend or home fitness equipment, to strike and kick pads; with practice, you will find the zone.
