P90X Classic Plus: Day 13 (Kenpo Cardio Plus)

We all know martial arts day is my favorite day! This was no exception. I did a bit of sil lum tao and chum kiu to replace some of the warm-up routine, then tore through it as usual.

Speaking of wing chun, I got some awesome tips from Sifu on Tuesday night about improving my chum kiu. That will prove invalueable, as I really believe getting that form better will take me to the next level. In the first form (sil lum tao), all you do is stand still and go through wing chun’s major hand motions. However, in chum kiu you learn to pivot, kick, step and use the mechanics of your body in motion to generate real power.

About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
