Oh KATE and your gorgeous hair and clothes!!!!
I am ever so PUMPED.
Let the media frenzy commence!
Moving on! Random fact: I'm sore in places I didn't even realize had muscles.
I'm talkin' BOOT CAMP, yo.
It's crazy. This is my third time doing this program (over the course of three years #newbie) and I'm STILL learning new exercises. Today we had to sit on the floor of the weight room, do an overhand grip of the benchpress bar thingy (I'm SO technical ;) ) and PULL OURSELVES UP OFF OF THE FLOOR while keeping our feet on the ground and our bodies in a straight line.
It's a simple move, basically, but an INCREDIBLY hard one for sure!
|((How I feel 4 days a week!!!! :D )|
Oh, and can we briefly talk about how I have roughly about ZERO percent upper body strength? It's actually QUITE hilarious. Yesterday we were bench-pressing like BOSSES (<- read: normal folks) and when it's my turn...well...it just didn't work.
I tried. I really did. With all of my might, I tell you!
Sure, I could go about halfway up on each rep, but any higher than that and my left arm decided it pretty much was done and REFUSED to move any higher! My right arm, though, it was a beast. So I can tell you I looked PRETTY SPIFFY doing a nice crooked, diagonal, shaky bench press rep.
At least it worked SOME sort of muscle though, right? Now, it could have been my imagination (<- even though it NEVER EVER is) (EVER) (<- HA!) - but I may or may not have seen the coach give me one of those "Seriously?" looks when he walked by.
Can't exactly say that I blame him, though. I was pretty much thinking the same exact thing while I was on the bench. I laughed a few hours later when I could finally breathe again! :)
No, I am not strong. But that's why I'm doing this! To get better!
And hey - it's all about improvement, right?!
What is something you'd like to improve on?
