strength training

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

I've never been one for strength training. Ok, let's be honest, I'm not big into exercise in general. But I haven't been too adverse to hopping on a treadmill for a bit here and there, or doing belly dancing along with a dvd. But when I hear about strength training, my eyes kind of roll back in my head and I want to snore.

So, imagine my delight when, after a couple days of doing the strength training exercises that sparkpeople recommended, I found that it wasn't too bad! It's about 20 minutes 3 times a week. Ok, I can do that. I could even do that while watching Judge Judy. If I'm careful.

But the best thing? After I work through the 6 exercises and spend between 5-10 minutes doing a bit of yoga/stretching (cat/cow, downward dog, cobra, warrior), I feel completely refreshed and rejuvenated - a feeling I've rarely gotten from exercise.

I'm not going to go so far as to say that this could be addicting. But, if it does, I wouldn't be too upset.
