Another Thursday, another kickboxing class

*phew!*

Went a lil better than last week tho, I think.

I went thru my drawers (chest of drawers, not undies) and dug up my rib-moulding sports bra - DEFINATELY DON'T REGRET THAT! However, my shoulder is sore - methinks I need to adjust the straps a little....?!

Anyways, there is point to this -

Kranki has pointed us to this site, and because I lack imagination, I've been looking EVERYWHERE for things I can sketch and send in! Note: I have discovered that your sketch doesn't need to be any good for you to be able to see one (they're all approved before they can join the 'swappage') but I'still d really like to send a good one through!

BUT.

I haven't thought of one.

BUT.

I though I'd show you a drawing illustration of something I realised at the gym tonight anyway.

In kickboxing tonight we were doing a circuit thing that involved something we do fairly often - one person kneels while the other person does situps and punches the mitts thusly:

Being the person on the left there, you're left with a lot of time to catch your breath, look around and become a bit more self aware.

Here's what I learnt tonight:

THERE IS NO WAY FOR ME HOLD THE MITTS WITHOUT TEH WIBBLEWOBBLE!

Each time the mitts get punched, you feel the wobble in your arms:

So you tense your arms, and feel it in your boobs:

Tense your arms and your boobs, then feel it in your belly:

Tense your arms and your boobs and your belly, then your partner will think they're not hitting it hard enough and will try to hurt you:

Relax too much and, well, y'know...

*tee hee*

Time for bed!

LOL! I love your drawings! The blonde girl looks mean :)

I have never had to be the punchee, I was only ever the puncher to my personal trainer. I'd be too sissy to hold something and let someone else punch it.

Whoa! This is the best one of these I ever did see. Visual aids really do make a difference.

d'jen - glad you liked them =o) She was actually quite nice, but VERY fit, so scary. It's not usually too hard - there's a mix between hardcore punchers and softcore noobs, so it balances out!

adam - hooray!

Enny-chan! ohh good luck chicken...I love the drawings though. Made me laugh! Will you send them in?

Enny said...

lulu - heh heh - I'm thinking about submitting them, but they're nowhere near the standard of some of the others I've seen!
