Back in ATTACK
I hit the jumping jack
I’ve been too long I’m glad to be back
Yes, I’m let loose
From the faineance-noose
That’s kept me hanging around
I’ve been looking at the sky
Longing for my Attack-high
Forget the rest ‘cause I’ll never let go
I got nine tracks
Burpees and co.
Abusin’ every one of them and running wild
‘Cause I’m backBased on AC/DC: Back In Black
Yes, I’m back
Well, I’m back
Yes, I’m back
Well, I’m back, back
Well, I’m back in ATTACK
Yes, I’m back in ATTACK
Last Friday I had my first Attack class after three months of involuntary abstinence. And not Finger– or Options-Attack in my kitchen, no it was a REAL Attack class with REAL participants in a REAL studio.
A very cool, brand new gym (opened for six weeks and then came the Corona closure…) with great equipment, a nice team and a nice group fitness room, where among other things BODYATTACK courses are given. 😀 Of course I had to make sure that I knocked on the door right away! And so last week I gave a demo Attack class – the first time ever that an Attack class was held in this studio, by the way.
For the occasion I had put together a choreo mix with old and new tracks – of course adapted to the Corona requirements – and I tell you, it was just wonderful, great, brilliant… I was really worried if I still could do it… if I still could hold out or if I would just drop dead in the middle of the show… But yes, I still could do it and I obviously held out, as I’m still here. 🙂 Also the participants were great – most of them did Attack for the very first time! – they ran the whole hour and we all had a great time.
A little less fun was the brute muscle strain that started slowly in my butt on Saturday morning and then spread further and further throughout my body – no kidding, it crawled even into my hands and feet! The only part of my body that didn’t hurt terribly was my abdomen – it’s probably already in such good shape thanks to my very effective abdominal muscle training “that little bit of Attack” didn’t bother it… 😀 But of course this one hour of Attack was worth every second of suffering!
And there you see once again how ingenious Bodyattack is: The whole body is involved, down to the smallest muscles. Even the hands, through the frequent alternate clenching of a fist and stretching the hand. Or the feet, because we always change from the toes to the heel – through these changes, through all the jumps and bounces, even a forefoot runner like me can still get sore muscles in the feet.
