Yesterday was surely the toughest shadow boxing session I have even done, Mikael made sure I worked until my arms dropped!
It was very intense for the body and for the mind as well, I was not allowed to give up even when my arms gave up!
I really liked the mind game of the session. First I worked in front of the mirror with intensity and speed, then in front of Mikael with movement and no touch, then light touch.
I worked on technique on the heavy bag after that.
This session was hard but it felt good, I felt relaxed. I thought about it afterwards and it is so amazing how the footwork comes naturally with the technique, even if I still have some work to do on the flow.
At some point Mikael said not to use it, I felt so strange and unnatural which is a good sign. When I train alone I do it right and then wrong to feel the difference.
Mikael decided to add shadow boxing to the end of each sessions from now on, that will for sure finish me off!
