If you’re anything like a normal human being, you’ll be wondering why I have a picture of a sex toy on my charity blog. Fear not, friends – it is actually a ‘technique bag’.
I provide a picture of this ‘technique bag’ because, upon arriving a the gym today, I discovered that they still haven’t replaced their punch bag.
Rather than beating upon a mortal, as is my usual alternative, I resigned myself to using their ‘technique bag’ instead.
The idea is that the ‘technique bag’ sways when you hit it; rocking around, but never collapsing. That’s the theory anyway and, when tapping away at it (as if massaging my opponent) it did indeed sway about.
Unfortunately, when I hit the ‘technique bag’ properly (like a man), it just fell over. All power, no technique…this is why I suck at boxing.
When – WHEN – will David Lloyd pull their finger out and get a proper punch bag again! It was one of the three reasons I joined; near to work, decent free weights and punch bag. Now the free weights are always busy and there is no punch bag… BAH!
This is the routine I performed:
Bench presses at 80kg
Incline presses at 60kg
Cable flyes at 2 x 12.5kg
Cruches, situps and leg raises
