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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I am getting a lot of use out of this TRX set up ๐Ÿ˜€
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)
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 ย preparation for going up into a full gymnastic bridge one day ๐Ÿ˜‰

Then it was Thai Boxing / random other martial arts time ๐Ÿ˜€

We started with the 360ยบ defence that we did last week ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

      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!

        Ps..,so glad you have power restored ๐Ÿ˜€
