Day 185: Monday Morning Madness

13191-Orange-Man-Jumping-Rope-During-A-Cardio-Workout-Clipart-IllustrationWho would have thought that I would be starting Monday morning with skipping…

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 πŸ™‚ I am getting a lot of use out of this TRX set up πŸ˜€
I did:
side lungePull-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)
Squats
Jump Squats
Side lunges
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 Β preparation for going up into a full gymnastic bridge one day πŸ˜‰

Then it was Thai Boxing / random other martial arts time πŸ˜€

We started with the 360ΒΊ defence that we did last week πŸ™‚ 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!

Anyway…

Day 185 complete πŸ™‚

      1. That’s a shame! It is an excellent bit if kit!
        It is like that in our gym with kettle bells, they are not out a PT has to go and retrieve them from the store/office!
