Boxing Workouts – Day 12 – Technique 2 (Off the Jab)
Well folks, I’ve made it to the end of week 2! – and I’m really happy to have stuck it out. I’ve now completed 10 full boxing workouts on the punch bag.
Here’s my end of the week review. Firstly, there’s been a lot more variety than I previously imagined. The schedule has switched between 4 different routines focusing on ‘Power & Speed’ & ‘Techniques’. I’ve not once felt bored, in fact the opposite – whilst the blood is pumping – you need to concentrate hard on the combinations. Your mind can’t wander.
Two weeks in, I can now also appreciate the logic of 2-minute rounds. 2 minutes maximum effort, 1 minute rest. However tough it gets – you know it’s only for 2 minutes. I don’t think about a 30-minute workout, I think about 2 minutes at a time. 2-minutes to aim for your best!
Having been slightly nervous starting again on Monday, after the weekend break – I think I’ve ended the week well on top. Without doubt I’ve made significant progress. I’m not feeling so overwhelming exhausted and even managing to push it harder. My muscles (particularly back and shoulders) are feeling a lot more solid. When I skip, there’s less weight to lift off the ground! It’s true what they say about developing a ‘spring in your step’.
There’s a long way to go, and with the shape I’m in – I’ll definitely going to need the whole 60-days. But that’s fine with me. My fitness and boxing learning path is mapped out for the next 6.5 weeks.
I’ll finish now. I’m not sure if I’ve got writers block or its just my arms are aching too much to type. Rest and recovery here I come – or may be I’ll have bash at this below over the weekend ….. I’ll let you know on Monday.
