Anonymous asked: Your workouts are all over the pllace. Pick one damn sport/workout!
I’m a martial artist, I can’t stop that training unless I learned NOTHING from the five years it took me to gain my black belt. I love the feeling of a perfectly executed roundhouse kick or crescent kick (to the head).
I love rock climbing. I use it to complement my strength training, and I absolutely adore climbs with high knees. I just started this school year, but I quickly came to looove it. When I got climbing shoes for christmas I actually threw my arms around my mother in total happiness.
I use yoga and running to calm down. Yoga is great for relaxing the mind, improving your stretch, and various other things like immune systems etc. Running is the most accessable form of cardio for ANYONE and on a particularly bad day it really helps you just get everything out.
And to be good at what I’ve listed a lot of the others work into it! For example: Taekwondo workouts typically involve me jogging anywhere from 10 minutes to HIIT Runs for 20 minutes then stretching for a bit (10 minutes) THEN intense bag workouts or line drills (where the kicking comes into play) and then ten minutes of bodyweight exercises. If I’m not busy when I do this, I usually end up at the rockwall to fit in 2-4 climbs and chat.
Back home, TKD workouts would also include a few days of sparring, a few days of ONLY stretching, etc. etc.
And crew….well…..I’ve yet to actually try crew and all that jazz, but I need a team feeling here and coaches to help me stablize workouts and well…I LOVE TRYING NEW THINGS AND SPONTANAITY IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED. And I’ve got a few friends on the team and get a weight room only they use so YAY no more intimidating people….I’m trying it out and hopefully I enjoy it. I stayed for a practice and liked what I saw and wanted to join in.Oh and THEY VARY THEIR WORKOUTS TOO OMG THEY STARTED WITH URGS THEN WENT FOR A RUN THEN URGED AGAIN AND THEN THE COACH WAS ALL HMM TIME FOR A LITTLE FIVE MINUTE YOGA STRETCH THEN HE TOLD ME THEY DO STRENGTH TRAINING TWICE A WEEK.
Save for (future) crew, I implement all of those sports/exercises into my workouts 2-4 times a week. I don’t even consider climbing a BIG workout routine because I do it for fun, and same for yoga - I typically go for a climb or do yoga on my rest days too just to have fun with it. Mixing up your workouts actually helps keep your metabolism running smoothly, and finding sports that you enjoy are a great way to stick with your workouts!
So after this long rant….I can bid you a “fuck off.”
