I have started a new approach to my workouts recently. I have cut out most of the free weights and weight machines from my routines. I still do dumbbell curls ('cause it's good to have big guns) and benchpress sometimes, but now I mostly do plyometrics. My strength workouts now consist of push-ups, pull-ups and other similar exercises. The most recent activity I have added (courtesy of Becky's birthday present to me) is the punching bag. I purchaced a pair of MMA gloves and gave the heavy bag a good beating today. It felt great! Beating the crap out of that bag, working up a sweat and getting any frustration out was amazing. I'm hoping it also helps with some eye/hand coordination and speads up my hand reaction times also. I'll let everyone know how this all goes soon. I will be updating my "Getting Fit" file soon, if I can swallow my pride and admit I haven't done too well this past month.
