Update on My Fitness
Hey guys, I just got back from the gym. After witnessing how much
I slack off, something had to be done about it. It is unacceptable to be at this stage
as someone who is striving to become a martial artist. I was supposed to own the whole
gym! Haha. Every exercise was supposed to be child play for me but it was not the case at that time.
But anyway, today I did witness some remarkable improvements. I can actually do 5 one arm
pushups again with each hand. I can perform three handstand pushups. I believe I can hold the
horse stance for about a minute. I work on my abs but I did not get the chance to test myself
on the L-hold nor the situps. Also, I perform some kicks on the cable machine. I am still discovering
ways to work on the kicks but at least I am certain about the side kicks and the hook kicks. I can
perform from 5 to 6 reps on each leg. However, I am still struggling with the front kicks. I don't know how
to perform them exactly on the machines but it's alright. It's not going to take me long enough to figure it out.
I am still amazed how training in the martial arts can spark this sort of creativity in me. When I go to the gym,
I am not following a routine; I just go to the gym and work on what I need to work on. Yes, I workout every
muscle of the body! As we members of FMK know, a martial artist does not leave any muscle group of the body untrained. That's what makes the training total. As far as the bench press is concerned, I can bench press 60 pounds. I know I need to work on it but there is no rush. I will be able to bench press my own weight sooner or later. That's my update for today. I will give you all some updates until next time.
