Boxing Workout Schedule
I can’t quite believe I’m beginning a 4th week. This must be the longest commitment to exercise I’ve ever made.
Normally I suffer from the internal self-talk – making excuses, trying to find reasons I shouldn’t do it, sometimes, I even feel sorry for myself! – but most often – it’s just plain delaying! Having a schedule and sticking to it – is proving invaluable to me. It’s forcing action!
Even on those days I feel a little achy or tired, I trick myself into thinking I’m just doing just the warm up, skipping and shadow boxing. I don’t think about the entire 30-minute workout. Once I’ve pressed play, and hear Corney saying “Right let’s start with some dynamic stretches” – I’m lovin it! There’s no way I’m pressing ‘stop’. And I always bounce back into house feeling great, proud I’ve finished it, and really happy to have chalked up one more workout. I guess it’s all those endorphins bouncing around my body.
Technique 3 (Long Range)
New skills today? The highlights were adding in the ‘Low Cross’ in Round 3 and then Jab to the Body + Jab to the Head (Round 4). It will be interesting to see just how many techniques I’ve learnt and become competent at by the end of the 60-Days. It’s a steep learning curve but gradual and not rushed.
Good news! I’m getting there with my skipping. The extra practice is paying off. I’m not quite sure how it happened but I’ve suddenly stopped jumping so high and spin the rope faster – and co-ordinate both at the same time. It’s a minor miracle. Next up is to incorporate the run on the spot – ‘high knees’.
Mission on Wednesday – to do 7 ‘proper’ Burpee Jumps.
