At Every Machine I Feel Like A Wimp
Another strength training session this evening, while Daughter was having her swimming lesson.
It’s odd, but every time I get on a machine, I have to do the usual resets on the seat positions, but I also do a dramatic change to the weights, taking loads off. The programme that the trainer at the gym put together for me is a series of 12 reps on pretty much everything, but with pretty much minimal weights too.
On some of the exercises (anything leg-based), it’s as if there’s no weight there at all, though I do feel it by the end of the set. And on the upper body stuff, I’m quite embarrassed at how hard it is.
But I guess there’s nothing for it - just grin and bear it, while I take my medicine.
