Boxercise

Being on the less than average fitness side I have recently been getting up early and walking, even a little jogging....I happened to notice the local Police citizens Youth club had refurbished their Gym.

Now I cannot really ever see myself in a gym, but I did notice they had a Boxercise class....go on, step out of your comfort zone Fleigs, put down that cheeky little Beaujolais and go along....

Right now my forearms are propped up on the table, having had them lifted there individually by Mrs Fliegs.....I am unable to lift them myself, they appear to have seized.....I am not sure how I'll feel tomorrow, suspect I'll be somewhat delicate, but not in the more familiar hungover delicate, more like may I have a wheelchair and an IV drip please....

Seriously it does feel good, in a sore kinda way....and there was another new girl there too, Azlyn, so we paired up....which is nice, cos it sure is daunting to stand there amongst the beautiful people looking like I do (not obese mind, but not 'fit' either!) I told Mrs Fliegs about Azlyn as soon as I got home to make sure there would be no awkward surprises later on, cos I will go back....

You need to be fit to take up keeping fit.

The secret for comfortable muscle building is less weight, more repetitions. And a good stretch before and after. Every day.

As far as Boxercising is concerned, go and see Mr Porsche. They make a nice one.

Sorry I misread it "Boxersize" - thought you needed help as to
what size jocks you were after.

I'll hold on to yer cheeky little Beaujolais Fliegs and watch you
work out.

If you collapse from a heart attack can I keep the bottle?

Personally I prefer Sexercise with the Mrs. No sore muscles afterward. (Maybe a sore shmeckel after a marathon but, hey, that's the price to pay!)

Not so, RGB, I can gain weight painlessly. It's losing it again that hurts.

that may be, MagnusP, but if you gain some extra weight then you need to take part in daily Sexercise. As long as you haven't gained so much weight where you can't see your schmeckel anymore, a daily romp in the sack will keep the poundage at bay!!!!

Besides which, in those circumstances, it's twice as big and there are two of us looking for it.

Too bluddy right !

The trouble with jogging is, by the time you realise you're not up to it, it's too far to walk back.

Playing in the bath, MagnusP?

I have no room for the Mrs. whilst taking a bath.

I only have room for:

Late 20's and fed by airlines as they used to be. Smoked fine Cuban cigars. Tried to run to the farmland just 100 yards from my door. Terrible. I'd do better now.


Went back to Judo after a break of 8 years. Nearly killed me. Remember sitting on one of the benches looking kind of . . . dead, and people would keep coming up to me and asking if I wanted to play. I was wearing a green belt, so they assumed I could stand up. I remember my mentor explaining to them why I couldn't speak.

Anyway, after about two months, it was coming back. Twenty pounds of ugly fat had gone (I'd had me head chopped off. ) and was feeling good. Kept the training up, if not the contest, until I was nearly 60, then me bits started to fail. Sad that. Really miss running, but back's too hurty.

Still, even now, if I see a challenging set of steps, I run up them. For some reason that doesn't hurt me back. At Walton, the 50' climb to the flat was via 113 steps. Here, there is nothing but flatness apart from speedbumps. Hate it. Hate getting old.

However, a mate of mine that used to lie down at the first sign of wanting to exercise, is now the fittest of me and all my contemporaries. Bloody annoying.

Fliegenmong, you can expect your arms to hurt like hell tomorrow, then by the next day you will feel like your muscles have seized up completely (pain will be worse too). Do NOT do exercises involving your arms during this time, because it will damage them more than make them stronger.

When the pain has completely gone, it means your muscles have repaired slightly bigger and slightly stronger than they were before. After a few weeks, the time it takes for them to repair will gradually reduce. This is the long, slow and painful path to muscle building!

It's perfectly normal, and when that pain has disappeared after a few days (could be over a week if you haven't exercised them properly for a while), it's safe to continue

Boxercise? Great fun. Bro does it all the time (variants there of). He's lost a heap of weight and got fit in the mean time.

I do pad work with the personal trainer. For strength work we use the TRX straps. Amongst other things.

Good effort, keep it up.

Natural born leader Ha ha, thanks but I doubt I could lead a pack of starving wolves to fresh meat!
Slash, yes I hope to drop a Boxer size
Thanks for your kind words all, I'm actually feeling really pretty good this morning, though I failed to get up for the dawn Anzac service, which is something I ordinarily never miss if I'm here...I slept well...
People tell me the second day is worse...we'll see...they do a spin class on a Thursday morning....see how I feel....
