Trainer Gwyn loves to kick my butt. And I love it too.
We warm up every session with 15 minutes of cardio. Then lately we've been doing a lot of heavier weights. Tons of different moves to tweak every possible location in my body. It's a great way to bulk up my muscle, which helps me burn more calories and slowly change my shape. I'm not going out for Ms. Olympia, but I know that the more muscle I pack on the better my bones are protected and the better I feel.
At least one day a week she and I are also in the pool. If you think this is for wimps - wrong. She often has me start with laps, which is hilarious because I am a total crap swimmer. LOL. In fact, I probably burn more calories trying to do it than a professional swimmer because I am flailing around. Doesn't matter though, I try and that's all that counts.
She also has me do weights in the water, running and the ab work she had me do the other day I felt more than I have been on land, nice. Water is also where I am on my days without Gwyn. I switch between the lap pool and the exercise pool. Even on the days I think, "I can't workout today, I'm not feeling great", I know the pool will make it better.
Today was a lot of biceps and triceps. I suspect picking up a tissue will be a toughie tomorrow, but it's totally worth it. :)
Yours in Health,
