It’s now Tuesday morning and I am sore!
Sunday I went to Yoga with Deanna. Admittedly, I kind of thought of yoga as a bit of a joke, at least compared to the work outs that I normally do through the week. While it is generally much more relaxing, it’s not a joke. I was sore yesterday morning. The long stretches and holds in certain positions can certainly help build some strength. For physical exercise, it may be a good starting solution. It won’t replace cardio any time soon though.
Monday I went to MMA101 and BJJ. MMA101 was all about ground control from the bottom and kimuras and arm triangles. LOTS of fun. Wednesday apparently wraps up the 101 class and it starts over again next Monday. It goes through Boxing, to Muay Thai, to clinch control, wrestling, and BJJ. I apparently came in about the middle when I started a month ago. BJJ last night was about passing guard and getting the rear naked choke. I’m bruised and sore, but had a hell of a time.
Tonight is conditioning. When I got up, I seriously debated whether I needed a day off. I think I can hang.
If you are reading this and in the Birmingham area, seriously think about giving Spartan Fitness a try. You’ll have to work hard, but I promise the results are worth it. Beside feeling a hundred times better, in just a month, I’m thinking more clearly and have more energy throughout the day.
