This is the second time I’ve noticed this happen. I do a boxing workout too many times in a row, having a great time, and then all exercise must stop for a day or two because of the intense upper back and neck tension causing paralyzing headaches.

Erg. I’m having such a great time with the boxing workouts … but I guess I get so focused on making that punch I tense up my upper back. So I can’t do them day after day. I have to space them out.

Oh well, I really should be alternating between upper and lower body workouts anyway.
