With the two inches of rain that poured down here yesterday, I was glad I had scheduled Wednesday as a ‘gym day’. I am determined to use my membership this year.
When I got to the gym, I saw the two Precor EFX 645 were occupied! Hey, how dare people be on my machine!
So it was time to actually start a strength training regimen. I went through some pretty basics, and didn’t lift a lot of weight. I didn’t want to end up with really sore muscles due to not being in shape to strength train.
Then the machines opened up, and I decided to try one of the pre-programmed workouts, something called ‘gluteal workout 1’ for 30 minutes.
Ugh, I was tired at six minutes.
Around 15 minutes, the machine told me to pedal backwards! Well, that was different.
I found out I am not as great ‘in shape’ as I originally thought with climbing steps. I was glad this was only a 30 minute workout! But it’s a good start to improve on my climbing ability.
