Flexibility Training and Enjoying Life
|A nice fishing spot. 很好钓鱼的地方。
TrainingAnother weekend of very little training where I focused on reviewing Taiji Quan and stretching. I recently have been doing "research" into what I need to do to improve my flexibility. Watching videos, like those by Fight Tips, on different stretches that can help. All that I've read has concluded up to:
- Warm up before stretching
- Stretch everyday
- Stretch your lower body, back, and legs
StudyAs for studying I have been trying to study my Chinese some more by using FluentU and DuChinese. Though I am still seeing if I like FluentU I still enjoy using DuChinese and reading their stories in order to improve my vocab. Obviously, since I haven't been studying, I've forgotten a lot of things.

LifeReally, all that has been going on in my life is me making small changes so that I enjoy myself more in what I do. I'm still focusing on preparing myself for the big 1-2 years of Kung Fu training but I am also watching and reading other things that interest me to keep myself happy. One thing I am doing that helps me stay motivated with training is watching a show called Avatar: The Last Airbender.
How have you guys been?
