boxing power & speed
Just look at the concentration!
I half dread the walk to the garage, besides anything else – it’s freezing out there! So, no time for dragging my feet that’s for sure – wraps on and warm up.
boxing power & speed – I never thought it would be possible to feel completely wrecked – and yet great at the same time. I’m aching all over and every muscle in my body feels like its been in overdrive. But afterwards I feel energised and raring to go. This is a new experience…..
Day 4 – Power & Speed 1
So, this is the second time round for Power & Speed 1. Should be a bit easier!? Umm. Even though I’m really feeling the effects from the past 4 days – I went for it a bit harder, although I soon faded when the 2nd set of ‘sixer crunches’ kicked in – and by the end the ‘straight punches’ (with dumbbells) I could barely lift my arms! I feel I have a long way to go before I reach full speed. But that’s a good thing. I’m a beginner. My goals are on a day-by-day basis but the program is for 60-days and beyond.
Skipping / Jump Rope – I’ve decided to take my skipping outside. The top of the rope tends to hit the garage ceiling, I’m sure somehow I’ll end up hanging myself with it. Easily solved – I just hit pause on the iPad and step outside to skip for 2 minutes. I then come back in, press play and continue to follow along with routine – but skipping without the rope. That must surely count as extra points!
4 down, 1 to go – then Week 1 complete.
