D, have you thought about using one of these?Well yesterday's workout went really well! Since I go three times a week, every workout is a full-body workout because I get a full day of rest (at least between sessions). But each workout we focus on a single area, shoulders and back, lower body or chest arms and core.
Last night was shoulders and back and I think it's my favorite, though his goal is to work the areas to exhaustion. He is really good at it. We were talking about how personal trainer is sort of a new career and I disagreed saying that through history there were similar careers, though most involved wearing a black hood.
His place has no air conditioning but he has fans all over the place, which really does help. But I always leave there as wet as if I poured a bucket of water over my head.
But I am making progress. My shoulder is not so painful and I can do 10 inverted rows. Kinda like an upside down push-up hanging from a bar waist-high. When I started I could barely do three. Cliff remarked that I was indeed making progress.
I am really enjoying this! I can tell that my whole mood is improving as a result. Keeping to an eating plan is easier because I know it is in support of my overall fitness. I enjoy getting dressed because I know I look okay. I'm even more tolerant of the heat and humidity. Boy wanted to go out and play with a parachute-guy toy he got at a birthday party and we did, in the 90+ heat! I never would've done that before.
I am looking forward to slightly cooler weather though. SWMBO is gone next week, so I am Mom and Dad, so no early AM walks for me, but I do look foreword to getting out more soon!
