Day 6: Kenpo X


I did Kenpo X today.  The aerobics wasn’t so much the challenge.  The lack of coordination was.  That Jab/Cross/Hook/Uppercut thing had me twisted in a pretzel. I was having flashbacks to past wedding receptions where I am always out of step and crashing into someone while attempting the macarena.  I basically lack the ability to learn a move, while watching it at the same time as attempting it. My brain can’t invert the image to my body movement.  When I “got” a move I was fine, keeping with the rhythm and keeping my eyes off  the screen. As soon as I look at the screen, I stumble!

So, once again, I have re-learned what works for me:

Tip of the Day: Watch what they’re doing. Pause the DVD. Practice the movement. Then hit play.

This Kenpo X stuff is obviously good aerobics.  But it will also help me tremendously with tennis:  the footwork, the forward movement, the turning of the hips and punch.  This should improve my ability to play the ball, rather than playing on my heels.

+1 for Kenpo X!

Tomorrow: Rest Day, which  frees me up to go hiking to Jacks River Falls in the Cohutta.

    Nice work. It will get easier and then more fun. You’ll want to add weighted gloves in the not too distant future. Keep it up and enjoy your hike!
