Boxing Workout – Technique 4 (Close Up)
That’s Week 3 done! Another milestone and another big step towards the 60-Day mark. I’m feeling a significant difference in terms of weight loss, muscle gain and even more confident my boxing skills.
Highlight today? – the ‘step around’. That will take some more training to get right. Jab, Cross, Jab Cross, Step Around, Body Hook, Head Hook, Cross. It’s a long combo!
I have 2 goals for next week. Firstly, to make a concerted effort to focus on my technique. I’ve experienced all 4 of the technique workouts now. And although I’m more familiar with the routines and combinations, I think it’s wise to ‘go back to basics’ and double check my form is correct. I’m conscious I could fall into bad habits, and the longer I progress through the program the more difficult it might be to correct it any errors. I’ll be going through the ‘Technical Help Video’ again this weekend – and practicing without the pressure of a full-on workout.
My second goal is to watch my diet. I don’t think I’m doing too badly, but it needs some more thought and may be a few adjustments. I’m determined not to undo all my hard physical work. And there’s possibly some improvements to make in food choices – all this effort needs to count!
Is it Friday? Please say it is! Rest and recovery…..
P.S. I’m amazed at the amount of washing that’s accumulated. As a testament to this workout I can safely say there’s zero chance of my gear passing the ‘sniff test’ and making it through to the next day. My clothes are taking more of a battering than my muscles. I’m happy the days are now getting warmer – but that means I sweat more!
