Determined to get rid of the bingo wings that I have grown as a result of three weeks drinking and eating with my UK brethren, today’s new experience was to try a ‘Boxfit’ training session at my local gym.
For those not in the know, Boxfit is basically boxing training to music. It’s non body contact, and in this session we worked with a partner, alternating between punching and holding pads.
The session had me punching pads every which way (including upwards), running, crunching and squatting. As a result, a few hours later, and I find that I am unable to lift a pencil, and cannot get up from a sitting position without support. However, I happen to know that this is simply DOMS, and the sign of a good workout.
For a painful, yet productive experience – 4 out of 5 stars
