Back in ATTACK

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 back
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

Based on AC/DC: Back In Black

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.

… But is anyone here surprised? I don’t think so.
After all, Attack is incredibly FIIIIIBBBBBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!
