Changing Up My Weight Program
Wednesday, November 03, 2010
My back has forced me to move from free weights to the weight machine. And, over the past several months, I've noticed no change.
So, yesterday morning, I spoke to one of the trainers. I was doing what I had been told, but was holding steady, something that hadn't happened when I used free weights. (And yes, Angela, I really was trying to get more upper body strength for kayaking.)
The trainer and I decided I needed to bump up the weights and do more sets with fewer reps twice a week and then on the third day, cut back to what I had been doing.
Not sure if it will help, but I must admit, the first two days of the enhanced weights and more sets has kept my muscles mildly aching into the next day.
