I have been terrified of today's workout since Wendy sent it. It started with 3 sets of 15 decline push-ups.
I NAILED THEM!!!
Unfortunately they fried me for the rest of the workout & I had to use 20 lb dbs for chest press & only 10 lbs for cable flyes. I like those! They are fun & HARD.
I worked out with my friend, Kim. She weighs 308 lbs. She's lost 30 lbs since May. She wants to start lifting weights but has LOTS of orthopedic issues; carpel tunnel, knee issues, hip issues, yikes. I'm trying to teach her some things that will keep her safe, make her strong, & help her lose weight a little quicker. I did have her do db chest presses. I started her with 5 lbs. She wanted to go up. Her form is really good! She really impressed me.
She's doing 9 minutes on the elliptical & feeling discouraged but I remind her that she's moving a lot of weight & that takes energy. She's not going to be able to keep up with me & she shouldn't even try. I did not (just for the record) have her do my Wendy workout. She did db chest press, flyes, & Nautilus chest press. She wants more. I'm not going to let her push me into giving her more than she needs to be doing.
Maybe I will consider getting certified after all.
My friend, Leanne, was there. She almost passed out when she saw me in the locker room before the workout. She wants to join us.
I think I might like working out in the morning AT THE GYM. Who knew.
Tomorrow is total body. Then I get an active rest day--I'm planning on taking a nice long walk if the weather is good.
As a final note, I got my Stretch Book & am going to do a warm up & stretch later.
