Strength training revisited

Friday, November 20, 2009

Let me begin by saying that I do not like strength training. I find the exercises boring or difficult and the payoff is barely perceptible. By contrast, I very much enjoy a brisk walk, a lengthy bike ride, or a session of heavy housework. I feel great immediately afterward, and I can quickly and easily perceive my endurance improving.

That being said, I know that strength training is "good for me," so I tried it for a while back in August/September, then pretty much gave up.

Last night, for the first time in weeks, I tried strength training again. This time, I altered my routine by eliminating the exercises that I don't like, such as push ups, and concentrated on abdominals and other core routines. And I must say, it wasn't so bad. Can't say that I "enjoyed" it, but I felt good about starting it up again and am hopeful that I will be able to keep this going.

Wish me luck.
