I love a good fight

Sunday, May 05, 2013

I must admit my new fitness addiction, is fighting my husband. Now before everyone panics let me explain. My husband loves brazilian jiu jitsu and mma style fighting in his spare time. I never really gave it much thought before, but after getting tired of being on the spin bike or on the treadmill I decided to let him put me through the paces and I was hooked. You burn a ton of calories, you get out of ton of frustration and so far we've only had a few mishaps that ended up with one of us hurt. Generally, I must admit it is him because he goes super easy on me obviously and I'm not always great with connecting with the correct part of his body or the pads. Unfortunately with his being on the other side of the world our fight training has really become my fighting the punching bag, but I still love it. I know lots of girls have hesitation about this style of work out just like many avoid the weight room, but I'm telling you grab a pair of gloves and take out every ounce of frustration from the day on that bag or if your gym offers bodycombat or a class like it. Try it! I can feel myself getting stronger every day I'm training, not to mention I love that feeling I can take on the world. I will say that it can come with a few bumps and bruises a long the way, but I see them as badges of courage. Here are a few from today. I wear them with pride.

    It's great - I train MMA, too, and it's not only a fantastic workout but it's a wonderful stress reliever!
