I'm down!

Friday, May 25, 2007

And by down, I'm talking weight and body fat!

I tried the other scale in the gym, which is out in the main weight area. I had compared it to the locker room one when I was at 155, and it seemed to agree. The locker room one still won't give me a reading. But the one in the gym says I'm 148. Woohoo! And Tony did a calliper reading on me today, and I'm BF 28.5%, down from 32.9 five weeks ago. So I've lost about 9 pounds of fat and gains a pound of muscel since I started working with him 5 weeks ago. I am so stoked!

We did pushups today, using the bench rather than the massage table (which I'd been using on my own, and I did far better than I did last time I tried 'em. I'm pretty happy about that.

Then I did overhead squats - squats where you hold the bar straight up over your head. It's really hard, esp since Tony kept at me to keep my rhomboids tights whic his just . . .

Then he flipped the BOSU over and had me do suqats on that. It was mind-bogglingly difficult, but I saw a definite improvement over the course of the workout. He also had me do some moving my balance around things on the BOSU. I do feel quite out of balance. Finally he worked on having me squat on the ball, which was really hard - I couldn't feel when I was in balance. But yeah, it would be great to be able to do exercises balanced on the ball. Great way to work the core!
