Pick things up.
Put them down.
I love, love, love strength training.
I love being able to throw my kids over my shoulder and carry in a heavy bag of groceries.
I know that strength training helps to burn fat and make me a faster athlete.
On Tuesday I had some free time (HURRAY FOR SPRING BREAK!!!!) so I decided to return to the weight room after a good month+ absence.
My plan was simple....
overhead press, leg extension, leg curl, bicep curl, tricep extension, the funny ab contraption
I used light for me weights. 3 sets each exercise...
That was Tuesday. It's Thursday and I'm still sore. Not a bad sore, but rather the "ohhhh it hurts so good" kind of sore.
I missed being sore.
A few thoughts....
~ It makes me a little sad that such a simple weight workout made me sore. That means that I've lost a lot of muscle.
~ Good news is that I can regain that lost muscle.
~ In my current training plan there is a day for strength training, but I've been doing body weight exercise. I miss the weight room.
~ I love being able to workout at home in the early morning hours. Maybe I need to invest in some heavier weights that I can use at home instead of driving to the gym.
What about you? Do you lift at home or go to a gym?
