Here is a great video that explains and demonstrates the correct execution of the push-up. We pretty much focus on these points in our class, but this visual explanation is a great tool and reminder.
We ended 2016 TRX with some fun. After our primary TRX workouts we tried a bit of Sword Fit, 1v1, 2v2, 1vAll, and Free for All battles. It was really cool to see my adult class take very easily and naturally to sword fighting. Clean techniques and adaptable strategies, from my usual chaotic kids sword play class. During our free bonus class we learned some knife fighting skills, 10 strikes/cuts and normal/reverse grips. We worked on some striking flows for 2 targets. And last but not least you survived our 20/20 challenge (5 sets of 20 pushups and 20 situps, (actually blasted out 70 leg lifts as a very end bonus). Welcome 2017, time to start moving, sweating, and TRXing.
It’s been an awesome last few weeks of Sword Play. Great battles, new battle drills, and new battle games. Bosu to Deflection to Fatal Blow. New Battle game: Hack and Slash (Receive a served hacky sack with clean hit allows you to attack, if you miss the hacky sack, your opponent attacks). Everyone adapted to our Battlecises well, (Sword Ups w/ strikes, Sword Pivots pushup to 1 arm plank, various bosu agility strike drills). Last week was an awesome continuous battle with 1 on 1 duels with me to work on various strategies and techniques.
This Thursday will be the end of this session. Our next session will be something new. We will be covering Gladiatorial Combat, hence it shall be titled, Sword Play: Gladiators. More details to come.
And last but not least. “May the Force be with you Princess.”
