The work outs from the Beachbody Programs are affecting my Karate!

Beachbody training has observably affected my Karate!!!!!
Last night as I was doing a pattern that I haven't done for a little while, I moved into a low position with a back fist.. and realized "Wow! I haven't been able to do this move in such a strong, and low stance before! I LOVE this feeling. Look how low I am.. at least 3 or 4 inches lower than I used to do it. I feel more flexible, and strong!"
As my brain delighted in that moment, I totally forgot the next move in the pattern. I knew that it was to the left, and that I had to move my left foot to get there.. but could not for the life of me remember what to do.
That doesn't happen often, and I'm sure that my face had that "deer in the headlights" look as I struggled to remember what I was SUPPOSED to do. I just awkwardly forced myself to move left, and well.. flailed my hands in front of my face in some sort of manner.
Things clicked in, and I was able to continue.. but this moment wasn't missed by my instructor to what appeared to be his entertainment.
