Day 185: Monday Morning Madness
Well Matt I suppose…as it was his idea…
Yep that’s right I thought personal training on a Monday morning was a good way to start the week…and actually it was a pretty good way to start the week, apart from the skipping, which was a shock to the system! (yes I know it is good for me shhh)
After the shocking skipping…it was TRX fun 🙂 I am getting a lot of use out of this TRX set up 😀
Pull-ups from the squat position (2 x 5)
One legged rows step through to one legged chest flys (2 x 5)
Narrow armed press ups (2 x 5)
Plank – Pikes (2 x 5)
Weird cross legged lunge things where you step one leg behind the other while lunging down and twist towards you back leg once you get down :-S
Then Handstands and bridges where you come right up on to your head in preparation for going up into a full gymnastic bridge one day 😉
Then it was Thai Boxing / random other martial arts time 😀
We started with the 360º defence that we did last week 🙂 it is pretty awesome and we added in inside defence where the attacks were more central and I had to defend across my body instead of away to the out side.
Once we had done that we spent some time doing normal punch / defence combinations followed by a drill to work on my footwork where I had to move in to punch then back out and sideways before the next combo…THis is so hard…I tend to come forward while fighting always forwards…apparently I am aggressive…who knew!
Day 185 complete 🙂
