Just Warming Up

Whether warming up or cooling down, working the trees is always enjoyable. Over the past four or five days, I’ve been hitting them for the first twenty minutes or so of my dawn workout, before stretching and moving on to more serious stuff, just to get the muscles loose and the blood flowing. When starting off this way, I like to dance a bit more than usual, and throw a couple rounds of push-ups and sit-ups etc. in there. So here’s what that all looked like this morning

Our days are getting shorter all the time, and night temperatures dropping. Won’t be more than a month or two here in Alberta before we start seeing snow and ice, and soon after that, the rivers and ponds will be completely frozen over. I’m actually looking forward to the challenges of working out in our winter weather again. I want to play with hitting panels of ice for power generation and further strengthening of the hands, arms, possibly shins (ouch). Ice is something I can easily access or produce here all winter, and it’s not a waste to smash it. I’ve also got a few different kinds of training dummies I’d like to build before the cold comes, for practicing drills when the nights are long

  1. Thanks for sharing. It will be interesting to see on video how your training goes in the winter time.
