This one is awesome. Like normal lunges but you do them backwards. I highly recommend it. Hold weights in hands to make it heavier!
Just trying to do it before getting in the water! (the body-position is just an approximation of how it should look like…) It’s possible to practice pretty much everywhere, so no excuses!
I went up at 6 am yesterday (wednesday), to go to the local indoor pool and get myself a membership-card so I can use their facility. It was chockas in the pool and two men started a little fight for not getting along in the water, haha… However I truly enjoyed starting the day by taking strokes in the water while the sun made its way through the early morning mist on the other side of the windows.
I did breaststrokes for 30 min, which I will do this for three more weeks and then increase it with about ten/15 min.
Today (thursday) I first did some F/T training at home before school, (which my sister helped me to take some photos of in our basement for you to see some of the exercises…) and I will later on do the 2nd set of 200 situps for this week. Then tomorrow I will have one Balance-session with hopefully longboarding if it’s not raining, followed by saturday’s Boxing at the gym (Strength), balance-board (Balance) and sunday’s F/T and 200 sit-ups. Then I’ve got this week’s training done!
The F/T workout today was killing me! So good! Intervallflex at the gym with a guy who unfortunately only does it once every two weeks, but he’s really good, he makes us push ourselves to the maximum a lot of times. We did a quick warm-up and then heaps of intervall-training for the first half an hour and then 25 minutes of flexibility training, which fits perfect to my F/T! The intervalls are pretty much divided into sections of 70 sec workout/20 sec rest X3, followed by 60 sec workout/20 sec rest X3…. etc. Always having a longer section of exercising and a shorter for resting (which means slow jog). Then on the flex-part we stretch a lot and do strengthening dynamic movements.
On my balance session of the day I had planned to do some longboarding again but the rain didn’t stop so I did some minutes on my balance board, while studying! Must have looked a bit awkward… hopefully the neighbors were too busy to watch me! However I did some crunching, standing on one foot at a time etc.
I need to get out on my longboard soon again, since it happened a little accident yesterday when I was going to the city…I was chillin on my board thinking I had a good balance and control over the situation. I stopped, perfectly fine, right at the traffic-lights, however my board didn’t stop as I’d planned which resulted in a little bump into a nice Audi that went by. Nothing dangerous happened but still real embarrassing… Just have to get on it again to forget that little incident…
This picture is what I gotta think of to keep me motivated at the gym or on my longboard when crashing into cars…
