You thought BC was hard? Try boxing at my gym! I'm not knackered, I'm battered
This class is SO hardcore, I always go in with a mixed feeling of total excitement and utter dread/despair. Just to give you an idea: we started off with a warm up that included push ups, sit ups and squat thrusts, then did some warming up boxing (i.e that is one person holding the pads and the other one punching, apparently in this country you're not allowed to 'proper' spar without head gear, strange
). A couple more rounds techniques, obviously alternating between your partner and yourself (holding the pads is a workout in itself!), then a what I'd call a 'superset of 100x jab/X, 100xupper cut and 100xhooks, X 2
!!!!! So 600
punches in total then swap and hold pads for your training partner.
After that, a mini version of circuits, you'd have loved this LGB! Between your partner and yourself you have a step (bench) and a mat. On the bench you'd do respectively step ups, bench jumps and, next to it, star jumps each, while the other person does sit ups continuously on the mat, until it's time to swap. So you basically do (about) 2 minutes step ups, 2 minutes sit ups, 2 minutes bench jumps etc.
I was floored!!!
Managed to drag myself to the sauna and steam room to slowly kind of recover, then had to cycle home (I've got a bike again!
), walk dogs and cook dinner. Now I'm rooted here in front of pute and will only move to go to bed!
