🐾 #2 Pawing away the 2021 lockdown blues with “Bruce THE Boxer” – “Getting Air”

Welcome back to your daily lockdown drill brought to you by Bruce…your fave Boxercise instructor! 

Attention!! Today’s Drill…“Getting Air” 

You may be thinking of Michael Jordan or a BMX dude getting air on a half-pipe…But let’s put the spring in YOUR step and see how much air you can get! Don’t stop until you’ve reached your own height in getting that air! Once you do…It’s a great way of getting lots of healthy treats as your human will be impressed! 😀

Jumping, aka (plyometric training), consists of fast, explosive movements which activate the fast-twitch muscle fibres associated with building muscle, strength and power. These jumps will  help to activate fast-twitch muscle fibres. These fast-twitch fibres have a big part to play when the muscle contracts against resistance; they are longer and stronger than the short endurance based slow-twitch fibres. We recruit more fast-twitch fibres during plyometric training resulting in muscle growth, strength and power. 💪🏼 

Now it’s time to get your human moving and see who can get the most air?! 🤣 

If you need inspiration…The photo above is me getting air on Old Hunstanton beach in Norfolk. Once you get enough air the entire beach disappears! 💪🏼
