Strength isn't just for the guys

Have I mentioned I love strength training? More than running, definitely more than biking or that damned elliptical machine... It's so much fun to see your muscles transform, to get stronger, leaner... well, I hope I'm getting leaner. I haven't gotten out the body fat tester in a while and I'm kind of afraid to at the moment, maybe after a month of working with a trainer I'll be brave enough.

I did some killer stuff today, lots of pull ups (ok, they were assisted, but still!), lots of push ups (no, not on my knees, thank you very much!), some nifty leg and arm work and then abs. I'm so tired I can barely type cause my arms are sore, but it's a good sore. It was a much harder work out than my trainer had scheduled for today so don't tell, okay? Tomorrow is an easy day so it shouldn't be a big deal.

Anyway, nothing exciting going on today. Gotta bet back to work. Lunch time is almost over. Ciao

What a great workout!

I love strength training, too. It is SO satisfying because you can feel yourself getting stronger, you can lift more, do more push-ups - it's a great feeling.

Way to go with the pull-ups. I should create some goals around pull-ups. I associate pull-ups with awesome strength, and how cool would it be to feel that about yourself, ya know?
