Testing my limits

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Today's workout was about testing my limits. Since I hurt myself 10 days ago I have had constant pain, but it has been less intense for the past couple of days. On Monday I did a short leg workout after my half-hour walk.

Today after the walk I decided to try an upper body workout. I picked up the 5 lb weights for bicep curls, but quickly realized that bicep curls are not a problem! emoticon So I grabbed for the 10 pounders and did a set of 10. Then some tri kick backs. Not bad!! Now down for some chest presses...

Uh... NO WAY!! So I tried with 5 lb weights... uh uh. Even trying to do a chest press with NO WEIGHT was hurting!! Nix that one.

I thought I'd flip over and try a plank...

I can't even get into plank position!! Oh boy!!

Anyway, I did 3 sets each of biceps and triceps. By the time triceps set 3 came around I knew my right arm was done because I was REALLY starting to hurt. Good time to stop!

Tomorrow I'm going to attempt some ab moves and some yoga moves.

    Be careful! Injuries can last too long! Make sure to increase weight slowly.

    I'm sorry about your constant pain. I really hope you heal quickly!
