Whoop Strap 3.0

Having a hard time finding a fitness tracker that can do the job right?

Trust me, I've been there… until I found the new WHOOP Strap 3.0 & App!

The biggest struggle of having a fitness tracker is the weird positioning on your wrist, at least for me. When it comes to training ground techniques or working the bag, it is hard and annoying to have a strap on your wrist.

If you're looking for something that gives you more information than anything else out there, WHOOP is the way to go. You'll get data and information that helps you recover fast by letting you know when you should rest, when you should sleep, and when you are at optimal conditions to train - all powered within the WHOOP App! You will have your own coach that guides you through the whole process, who will learn from you and adapt with you. Want to get even more personalized? Start a journal within the app and track your personal progress!


The core analytics collect all the data and give you recommendations for that optimal training session and strain on your body.

RECOVER FASTER

Daily recovery status, including Heart Rate Variability (HRV), informs how lifestyle and training behaviors affect your body's recovery, so you can make smarter choices moving forward.

TRAIN SMARTER

Track activities, monitor calories burned, and evaluate each day as it comes with instant performance feedback. Know when to rest and when to push.

SLEEP BETTER

Track sleep performance, efficiency, and consistency, including best-in-class phasing of light, REM, and deep sleep.

MONITOR TRENDS

Review changes in resting heart rate, heart rate variability, sleep cycles, and more over time to analyze trends and evaluate improvements.

Another feature that makes WHOOP so great is the community within the app itself. You can find and join local teams, create your own teams, find martial arts-specific groups, and build new friendships along the way. If you're competitive, you can also rank within their leaderboard and race to the top if you're wanting to go extra hard!

The one accessory that we recommend with the WHOOP strap is the Impact Sleeve. This makes for smooth and non-aggravating training sessions without having to continuously adjust your strap all the time.

Bruce Lee Enter the Dragon

Bruce Lee really did have the Midas touch when it came to training. Most people think Bruce was advanced and complicated, but he was the master of simplicity. He was not worried about doing the jump-up flip spin-around back kick. Not sure if there is one. But by the time you land, Bruce would just throw a simple kick or punch to knock you down as you landed to the ground. However, that is the point. Simplicity is often overlooked because of the coolness and the latest and greatest workout when simplicity produces the most significant effect. Super complicated does not mean superior. This is actually reverse in fact. We see super complex exercises that don’t need to be. Truthfully, if an exercise or method is not straightforward in its approach, then it probably is not good.

Tommy Fury, half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has withdrawn from his upcoming bout with undefeated YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul due to injury, per ESPN. The match was supposed to be contested at 192 pounds for eight, three-minute rounds on December 18. Thanks to former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, the show must go on.

Woodley, who was defeated by Paul via controversial split decision in August, will seek redemption on short notice. The announcement of the rematch comes less than two weeks before the event takes place. According to Paul, Woodley will receive a $500,000 bonus if he is able to land a knockout. However, Paul doesn't expect this to happen, claiming that he is going to "punish" the 39-year-old mixed martial artist.

The Woodley-Paul grudge match is not the only exciting fight on the Showtime pay-per-view card, as ESPN's #3 ranked female boxer Amanda Serrano will take on Miriam Gutierrez in the co-main event. There will also be another celebrity matchup between 3x NBA All-Star point guard Deron Williams and 5x NFL Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore, who will duke it out in a heavyweight bout.

A social media sensation versus a former MMA world champion. Two world class lady warriors. A former professional basketball player versus a member of the NFL 2010's All-Decade Team. Who will have their hand raised that night? Stay tuned for more news and updates about the event from Black Belt Magazine, both here on our website and on social media.

I have a confession to make: I’m a romantic for cheesy martial art movies.

One of my favorite things to watch in kung fu cinema is a teacher tortu–er, training a novice student. Of course, it is easy to see how we fit in the script. Regardless of our level, it is important to have a mentor who can help guide us properly in our training.

A big part of our growth as people and martial artists is finding the correct ways to be challenged and to promote our depth of understanding. While that duty often is seen as only befalling on the person you study under, there are various things we can consciously do to mix up our training to glean better benefits.

Check out these methods and you’ll soon be able to add new levels of realism to your training and find any hidden holes in your techniques!
