The Knock-Out Punch

I have been enjoying my Combat work-outs so much that I decided to do some boxing for my 43 today.  I used Hunter’s punching bag.Punching Bag

And, happiness – I wore my pink boxing gloves!!!

Pink boxing gloves make me smile!!

For the 43 I started with a right stance and, using my right arm did a jab, hook, uppercut series plus a left cross.  (I feel like my punching technique has improved thanks to the hints I’ve gotten from the Les Mills crew.)  Of course, I had to switch my stance after I got to 43 and do another set with a left jab, hook, uppercut, right cross.  As a bonus, I did 43 alternating jabs to finish!

Boxing makes me feel powerful!!!  I didn’t think I would like it as much as I do!

I also did a Les Mills Combat work-out – Combat 45.  Great work-out  – especially the jumping side kicks and the jumping knees!!!

While I was punching and kicking today, I was thinking about things I would use a knock-out punch on.

My first thought was this: Screen shot 2013-01-31 at 7.11.28 AMBut then I would have missed out on my work-out opportunity of the day and that would not have been cool!

Then I thought I would knock-out all of the daily aches and pains I experience thanks to getting older!!!Screen shot 2013-01-31 at 6.59.25 AM

But even that is a totally selfish thought use of my knock-out punch!

What I would really, really like to use it on is Cancer.  Cancer sucks!!! The last 1.5 – 2 years it seems like many people in my circle of friends, aquaintances, etc. have been hit hard.  So, I would say –  Screen shot 2013-01-31 at 7.19.35 AM


And on that note, time to take on Thursday!!  4th graders today!!!  (I won’t be doing any knock-out punches at school!!!)

Happy Thursday!
