Accelerated heartbeats, active lungs, you can't quite describe that feeling of adrenaline that you get after performing a highly challenging sport. It was a Monday afternoon, and I was at my twenty-something kick box class when I stopped and reflected on my overall performance. Kick box is a very demanding sport; if you aim to build up muscle strength and upgrade technique, you must execute it habitually.
I practice this sport every week, Monday's-Thursday's and then Sunday's, and it takes quite dedication to achieve this routine. There will be some weeks where I am swamped with school work, but overcoming these challenges and finding time is what will make you successful at kick box and life. I plan on continuing this weekly habit as long as I can, I am aware that eventually I will move on to college, and it is my hope that I can find time to achieve a healthy lifestyle too (be it with kick box or another sport).
As for the challenging part, it is not all about the time, but also the sport itself. It is really hard to apply the correct kicking and punching techniques, but with effort and practice, I am sure that I will eventually get there. When I had my first lesson, my methods were a joke, it is incredible how one can improve in a matter of weeks simply by training.
