This week I've enrolled at a boxing gym and am quite excited - while a bit nervous as I contemplate my first bout in the coming months. My ab strength will have to improve dramatically but this can only be good as it will improve my running and swimming in having a stronger core and also to absorb the body blows.
It's not like it's a world title fight or anything like that, but still it's little things that help to push me out of my comfort zone and assist in the hardening process with the flow on effect of hopefully some six pack development and stronger running and swimming.
All of this can only be good in the long run and get me experiencing things I haven't done in the past. I'd be interested in hearing what others are doing to extend their comfort zones.
