A little disclaimer: While my boxing trainer’s a little sexist, I don’t think there’s any malicious intent in what he says; He just doesn’t know any better. I try to do what I can, as un-preachingly as possible.
That being said, I felt incredibly proud of him earlier.
A year ago, he might’ve said, “No, you should do twenty reps because 10 reps are for girls.”
Instead he said, “No, you should do twenty reps because you’ve gotten stronger and if I made you do just ten, that’d mean you’re weak.”
He also hasn’t asked me to, “…stop hitting like a girl.” when he needs me to punch with more power in a really long time. And he’s stopped referring to more advanced drills as ‘boy’ drills and beginner/easier drills as ‘girl’ ones.
(Also, my unfit ass is getting stronger. Yaaaaas. (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و✧)
