Conditioning

Apart from these techniques, there have obviously been many exercises with the intention of conditioning us (read leave us hunched over on our elbows in a puddle of our own sweat, panting madly and strangely entranced by the lint and random hairs that have found their way to the mat).  These have had a large focus on our quads and our core so there have been duck walks, lunges, crunches, planks, etc.  We have also had our share of pushups, sprints, and workouts with 12 lb. medicine balls.

Never a dull moment.  Here’s to another month of intensity!
