Heavy Lifting

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

I still haven't made a plan for what I want to do fitness wise when school starts but I have made a few decisions -

1. I don't want to do the Boot Camp Challenge. I watched some promo videos on YouTube and it looks like the very kind of exercise I hate - rushed, pressured, jumping, no weights. Shudder. Reminded me of all the parts of fitkick that I hated (and none of what I loved - the heavy bag work).

2. I want to lift. Heavy. So I need more than the large groupex 'power' class.

I wrote to the manager of my gym to tell him what I was after. Maybe he can make it happen. In the mean time I restarted the base phase of The Female Body Breakthrough simply because I know the moves. In an hour I got in 10' on the bike, all 3 sets of all 8 moves, and 10' of stretching. Perfect :-)

Maybe it's the easy way out but it feels good for now. And it doesn't add to my fitness costs.

    No, you have to do what feels right!
Hopefully the manager can help you out.
I have an appointment with a personal trainer on Friday morning...
A first for me!
We will see how that goes!

    Well, sounds like you are making progress figuring out what WON'T work for you.
My bootcamp class does some weights and body weight ST, we do cardio in between to keep the heart rate up, but it isn't heavy lifting.

Good luck with the current routine, sounds like a good one.

    You aren't talking tattoos here. Try it out, you might like it, you might not. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
