Okay, so for the last month I felt like I have had some virus that has been clinging to my vocal chords and in my head and chest, and it has been sapping my energy. So today I decided to go box, because it has been ages and I figured I could try and shake this lurgy and I'm glad I did because I felt like I've cleared my chest and I just feel a more positive sense of well being. So anyway to my workout, I did 10 to 15 minutes of skipping, about 15 minutes on the floor to ceiling ball and about 45/60 minutes on the heavy bag. The heavy bag is probably the part of the training that got rid of the crud on my chest as it gets your lungs working. Also feeling a little more spring in my step, as recently my wrists and ankles have been aching, despite no bag work, but today they feel great after the workout. Even though I have not been working out as usual on the bags etc, I have been doing stance training, namely the Shaolin horse stance. Balance feels better after doing this, my legs feel stronger, more stable and my upper body feels more fluid and empty of tension. I've decided to include a video or two of a guy demonstrating the exercise, its a bit long, but he touches on some important points I feel. It looks a little pointless, but the benefits to this simple (but hard!) exercise are numerous. About 7 minutes in he gets to the horse stance and important hand positions. Here is another shorter one..
