Hey guys, I started sabre a few weeks back and I'm really enjoying it, but I was hoping for some advice on how to improve. I know that the absolute best thing I can do is bout, but for right now I'm only able to bout two days a week (amounts to roughly 2-3 hours). What else can I be doing to improve at home / with my free time?
Historically I don't like gyms, so I've been running outdoors about 4.5 miles three times a week and trying get my time for that lower and lower. I'm hesitant to start going to the gym because I'd be a little unsure which muscles to focus on (obviously legs, but what else?). So my real question is how should I divide my workout time between distance running, sprinting, and lifting, and are there any workouts / exercises you guys might recommend?
In terms of technique and skill, what drills / practice can I do on my own? I found this thread, which seems awesome. Hopefully I'll get some friends to practice those with soon, but at the moment this is a solo adventure.
Thanks a bunch for any advice you guys can give me. Fencing seems like a great sport; I'm just unsure how best to get started.
