It’s a good time to just be

December 15, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Final exams are over for me. Now I have to wait to find out what my grade is, hopefully in the next few days. On the upside, this is the start of a month long vacation from school until the Spring semester starts. I still have to work, but I’ll have a week and a day off for the holidays from that too. It’ll be time to tackle some home projects like cleaning out my workout room, putting up some stuff on the wall that we’ve been too lazy to get to, and work out lots. Our school will be out for two weeks, but I’m prepared with Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire, and hopefully Pump. Gotta keep the workouts going 🙂

Last night was a pretty impactful session of Krav Maga. For some reason keeping a knee raised so my partner can’t strike my thigh really seemed to work the oblique muscles. They certainly feel sore this morning. In Turbo Fire Chalene speaks of strengthening the core to get the most of your kicks and punches. She really speaks the truth on that, and last night was evidence of such. I’m glad my Core muscles are getting strong enough to take it, that’s for sure. I’m looking forward to tonight’s session most definitely.

Krav Maga is an interesting workout in that we spent quite a bit of time on strength and conditioning, but when you get down to the self defense moves, it proves educational as well. I fully advocate it as a cardio and strength workout, but also as a way for folks to learn how to defend themselves. You never know when you’ll need those skills to prevent something bad from happening.
