Boxing – Working Wednesday 5/10/17

Aquaworks (where I rehab) uses boxing to help Parkinson’s patients, and they have experienced much success. They thought they would use me as a guinea pig. It’s slightly different with one arm, but good grief I experienced an exhausting workout! After we got the Rocky jokes out of the way, (Adrian!) I punched and pummeled those bags with all I had! He also used handheld mini bags that I punched as he moved them around. I even did combos like left, right, left, uppercut. I never saw myself as a boxer, but I can see how it can become addictive. Then I used the tennis balls on a bungee to bob and weave, as much as I could without falling out of my chair. (Please, not that!) No wonder boxers are in good shape, its a major workout. (Sing with me “Doot – doot, doot, doot… It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight…”)
