Boxing cardio. Again! (Besides, I had new gloves to try out.)
|The clearest pic I took today|
Let's just start my saying that punching the heavy bag with the "new" gloves was like punching something with a pillow compared to the UFC grappling gloves I've used up to this point. I'm glad I got the ones with the thick broad velcro strap - made putting them on and taking them off much easier between rounds.
And ... I've said this before and I'll say it again ... there is a huge difference between using a 30 lb kettlebell and a 50 pound kettlebell. Today, I used the fifty pounder ... and I found this a hard workout:
10 rounds of 2:20 seconds of punching
then 1:20 seconds of KB two handed swings.
Each round I got to about 40 swings each round before going back to the punching. I'm serious when I had to dig deep to keep going with this workout. It was hard.
I'll take tonight off and take a look at my Santa suit for tomorrow.
