So I forgot to register in time to get my DVD’s at the workshop, but I still remembered to go! 😉
I taught my pump class in the morning then headed straight to the workshop. I intended to line up for Attack and/or Combat, not really sure if I could do both of them now that I’m 14 weeks pregnant. I am feeling the need to slow up a little.
So I did attack, honestly I guess I was a bit tired and I don’t remember much. I remember being surprised at all the new combo’s discussed in the education session. But it wasn’t too hard although I’m slightly more uncoordinated at the moment, so I floundered in a couple of places, but I’m sure I wouldn’t have normally. The first thing I remember is a pump track, followed by a pump track, followed later by a balance track. In the warmup I kept wanting to stop in the same places where we would in pump…..haha.
My shoulder injury has been playing up quite badly lately due to all the hormones. So near the end of the attack I stopped doing some of the armlines. I didn’t feel I worked all that hard, so when we hit the plyo lunges in track 9 I felt quite good. My shoulder was hurting, but luckily plyo lunges don’t use my shoulder 😉
The structure of this release reminds me a lot of BA51 actually, which is the one I’ve been teaching at the moment!
One thing that made me cringe is in the new hop turn (which during the education I thought they were saying “hot turn” 😳 ), some of the guys at the back were throwing their hands in the air having fun and turning it into a dance aeroplane thing. I guess the thing that bothers me is that who knows if these instructors are going to teach it like this “for fun”. That’s scary, cuz attack is all about posture, strong, agility. There was nothing attack like about what they were doing at all, and while fun is good, I also think it’s important to stay in the essence of the program. Let’s hope they don’t actually teach it like this!
For combat, I was expecting to have the education prior to doing the class, but then they surprised me by going straight into it. I really began to feel fatigue and by track 3 I knew I was really hungry and needed food (don’t deny a pregnant girl her food!!!!). So I actually left the class for the first time ever and got something to eat…..sitting and watching for the rest of it (well, talking I guess 😉 ).
I didn’t stay to watch pump, and balance was early in the morning so no chance to go to that one. Once I get my DVD’s I’ll be able to see what they’re all like then. I’ve got heaps of spare time for learning now that I catch the train into the city to work. So no more learning chorrey while driving perhaps?
