For reasons I don’t care to go into, last night was my first night home in a week. All I wanted to do was cuddle up to my wife and go to sleep, but I had an inner voice nagging me to do my workouts. So I did.
First up was 10 Minute Trainer Abs. This was tough, as always. I cannot stand Hip Lift Kicks. In fact, I dislike ANY side plank ab exercise. That’s probably because I find myself struggling to keep my balance more than I am able to actually do the movement.
So we all know what that means: if there is a particular move I suck at, then that is the one I should focus on doing!
The second workout for the day was 10 Minute Trainer Core Cardio, which was its usual fun, sweat-inducing self.
As for wing chun, I think things are coming along. Ever since my lesson with Sifu, I’ve been working my stance. Trying to get your whole body connected is really no joke. Now I practice the second form (chum kiu) at a slow, almost meditative pace…while still releasing my energy properly, of course.
Aside from this, I practice my pivot whenever I can. Even if I can’t do the whole form, I pivot from side to side so I can practice “sitting into” my stance. So far things seem to be coming along great!
