Juneathon day 23 – I don’t kick that hard…honest!

I had PT this morning…it was a bit like this:

buffy kicking

or possibly a bit like this:


or maybe this:


ok…sorry I’ll stop that now ๐Ÿ™‚ but it seemed like such a good excuse!!

So I guess you gathered that there was kicking…it was planned kicking, I mean Matt suggested that I kick him as part of our kickboxing training…it is after all almost half of the word kickboxing!!

As it turns out, however, I have a reasonably solid kick, which was compounded by a sudden (this week) apparent increase in flexibility which made me suddenly able to kick almost to Matts shoulder height (I didn’t do that all the time by the way…).

I have a theory about this increase in flexibility and kicking ability…I think it was a side effect of actually getting enough sleep for once! I have to get up super early for PT and I usually forget that this should mean I go to bed earlier. Last night however I tried a new thing and get enough sleep! Which meant that (for once) I had the energy to kick well and the energy to actually lift my leg up!!

As well as this, we did deadlifting, and hard kettlebell circuits!!

yes, hard kettlebell circuits is the technical term for it!

that was all before work ๐Ÿ™‚

which made me hungry and I had to con myself that my protein shake wasย food in order to resist the infestationย of cake that was in out office today!no cake

I managed it though! ๐Ÿ™‚


ok sorry I said no more Buffy…but you would know how superhero-y resisting all the cake was if you had seen how much there was!!

then lunchtime came…

and I went for a walk in the sunshine which was nice ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I have found a couple of online kettlebell workouts that make me feel like a weak little boy approx 8 minutes in. GAH! I *may* need to go get 2 kettlebells of a slightly lower weight so I can do some single arm stuff. At this weight there’s very few single arm things I can do with good form (other than rows).

      1. yeah, I feel limited to the variety of exercises because of the fact that I generally need two-handed grips at the weight I’ve got.


      2. Hmm – haven’t tried to be honest, because the two workouts I found online didn’t do single arm swings. It was more windmills, half get-ups, etc. I found that this much weight on the back of my wrist (in windmill, for instance) hurts.


      3. I can only do windmills with really light weights, I can do 8kg in my left arm but probably only 4 or so in my right because of my shoulder injury.
        I am sure you could use the ones you have for single arm swinging exercises like snatches, clean and presses and high pulls ๐Ÿ™‚
