Just Call Me Ahnold...

Okay, so the last little while I feel like I haven't been working out at all. This is likely because I haven't been working out at all. haha. Well, I have had a few swim and bike workouts, but I haven't been super consistent. One reason I LOVE weight training though is that after a few painful sessions I'm back in the game.

Yes, I have paid my dues by pulling muscles and not being able to lift my arms from my sides and now...I am Ahhhhnold. Well, a shorter more girly version of Ahnold. Fine a shorter, more girly, less muscley version. Tee hee.

I had a great workout today. Focused on the upper body but squeezed a couple squats and step up sets in as well. I finally got in three sets of pushups where I didn't feel like I was going to collapse. I'm getting much better at balancing on the wobble board while doing lat raises too! I love those wobble boards. My core is going to rock!

I worked in sets of pullups with another fellow who was using the machine for dips. Thing is, his sets were damn fast, which meant barely any break (aka rest) for me. And of course because there is someone standing there watching as they wait for their turn at the machine I couldn't slack off in my set even though my arms and back were pooped from not enough rest, haha. Needless to say when I tried to reach up to my locker handle I kinda had to fling my arm in that direction....cause I had no strength to actually lift my arm. By flinging I mean sort of using momentum to slowly swing your arm higher and higher until you can grasp the locker handle. Is quite a sight!

Ah well, that which does not kill us muscles.
