Even though I’m still feeling a bit ropey with this cold/virus I really wanted to go to my Boxercise class in the evening! After a slight anxiety break this morning – a spilt bowl of cereal was the straw that broke the camel’s back – I also really NEEDED my Boxercise!!!
Tonight’s session was hard going – after warming up we had ropes going across the hall – we had to weave under and jab, then high knee run back – repeated three times!
Then we had to weave and hook – moving back using lunges – repeated again three times!
After these we did a leg session – there was leg lifts, leg kicks and then side leg lifts, slow then really fast – I found this section very hard going, after a few days of no exercise and my cold!
Next up was an arm session – two jabs with each hand, two hooks with each hand, two uppers with each hand and two lower uppers with each hand, followed by a one with each had and this was repeated five times! Then a boxers bounce and do it again – so four lots of five!!! Swap – repeat! Woo!!!
Then paired up again for ten fast jabs – sprint to the end of the hall, kneel down, and then punch the punch pad on the floor or, and I quote “punch the shit out of it!” – repeat three times and then do again with ten hooks!
Finally some upper work, roll down into a push up position and lower for a count of eight (I managed to four), they repeated for five times, but I managed two as when getting back up it hurt my knees!
Roll down to a push up position and then twist to the side and up to the count of ten, roll back up, and then repeated three times!
Time for a cool down! It’s was a good session – much needed and did improve my mood – just hope this virus buggers off!!! Hate feeling so achy!
Yay for Boxercise!!! 🙂 xxx
