Conventions

Due to the number and size of articles in this site, I use certain conventions to make the pages easier to read and navigate, as well as to maintain consistent look and feel of the site.

Ladies, please forgive me, but it is very time consuming to write "he/she", "he or she", or alternate the two pronous, especially when  describing complex exercises. Therefore, I mostly use "he" referring to a training partner or opponent, meaning either "she" or "he" as the case may be.

In the diary, I refer to partner #1and #2 (number one and two). #1 usually is the attacker or the person who advances or makes the first move in the exercise. #2 is the defender, or the person responding to #1. This may occassionally get confusing in a free work situation or when partners take turns. Therefore, "both work as #1 and #2" is another way of saying that both partners work as the attacker and defender at the same time. When we get to work in triples or more, it is normal to see two of the partners acting as #1 and the third as #2 or the other way around. In those cases, partners agree upfront on who acts as #1 in each set and then alternate.

Most exercises are described one way - with one person acting as #1 and the other #2 only. In reality, partners may switch roles upon instructor's command or do a few rounds in their current roles and then switch on their own. In some exercises, after having switched roles, both can start acting as #1 and #2 simultaneously.

I may occassionally forget a minor detail of an exercise, such as the count to which we did slow push-ups, for example. However, this should not affect the purpose of the exercise or the relevant tips.

I will keep addting comments and explanations as the site is developed, so please check this page for updates / additional comments.
