What better way to shake the cobwebs of the weekend loose than a gruelling
boxing session at MWellness? I’m thinking a few hours on the beach might
have been a much more attractive proposition but it wouldn’t have made us
feel better, would it? Our training has gone up a gear, either that or we
are getting less fit as time goes on. Friday’s circuits were painful, much
more painful than the last circuits we did and as we start our warm up
skip Brian informs us that it’s time to step it up a bit.
Jaime, after failing miserably on Friday, hasn’t trapped so it’s just
Victor and myself left for Brian to concentrate his efforts on! We go
through a variety of sparring techniques, constantly dropping into press
ups just in case we tried to catch our breath at any point. Victor and i
are let loose on each other, throwing combinations, trying to knock each
others guard down before the bag becomes the object of our aggression.
Just as we reach that point where we can hardly hold our arms up any more,
we are treated to some ab work. You’ve got to hand it to these boxers,
they have to be in incredible shape before they get in the ring, luckily
for us that is a long way off yet.
