Flail, Flail, Flail, Flail, Flop...

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

On Tuesday nights my personal trainer has me doing Kickboxing with a few other weight-minded ladies that also attend sessions with my trainer. My trainer is an MMA fighter, so at times she can get pretty 'intense' into what she is doing. In a way, it annoys me because she gets so focused on what she is doing, that she doesn't pay attention to the fact that we're trying to keep up with her, and her cadance. We end up looking like we're stretching for the bag, form sucks and we're out of breath by the count of 2 while she's already counting to 4.

Last night, i was grateful that one of the other ladies said something to her about going to fast. My trainer asked, "D.J., how are you doing?" My answer was 'Flail, Flail, Flail, Flop!'. This brought great laughter from her and the other girls, as a demonstrated my poor form and flailing to hit the bag. She slowed down her cadance after that, and actually i started having fun with it. I still feel that i'm going on the flail, flail, flop motion, but at least now i'm doing it a bit slower and working on the form part. Kickboxing isn't all that bad, but honestly, it's not something i enjoy. As my trainer pointed out though, i need to change up the cardio that i'm doing (since mostly what i do is walking) and work on something else to tease my body into thinking differently. Anyone can put one foot in front of the other, but not many of them can do that and jab, cross, hook, upper cut, forward kick after they do it!

    Good thing one of the ladies spoke up, without time to work on your form you lose out on a lot of the benefits. I'm glad you are beginning to have fun.

    Kickboxing sounds like so much fun! I will have to check out some DVDs at the library! Thanks for posting!
