Last week at Catalyst Fitness I exercised with my workout partner, Denise.  At the end of our session we did some punching and kicking since we both like martial arts.  I held the martial arts mitts (targets)in various positions for a combination she wanted to work. 

Left low round kick

From what I can remember it was a front punch, duck down while I swung, left hook, right uppercut, left low round kick and a cross punch.  She got a good cardio workout and we both got to work on our concentration and coordination.  Here are some pictures from the session.

If you want something fun and functional, add some martial arts to your gym activities.  You’ll perspire and get more confidence in your other parts of your life.
