I was late
This is not good
I also forgot my towel which resulted in a very awkward towel and a very damp journey to work.
I also didn’t turn on my Apple workout so I have no stats for today which pissed me off.
Today was a challenge but I was ready for it!
I had to do kettle bell squats. I can’t do squats as we all know but I just can’t bend low enough. I had already warmed up with some dumbbell squats so I think Jon was just punishing me for yesterday’s lame attempt.
He made me do a weird thing where I had to tuck my elbows in and push a big barbell from my forehead up and then behind my head whilst lying down.
It was weird and I was slightly afraid of dropping it on my face and breaking my glasses. I didn’t really like it but it worked on my bingo wings so I was happy to try.
He made me bounce a 5 kilo medicine ball over my head then on each side of me. The coordination guru in my was obviously amazing at this. Or not. But I could barely lift the 10 k ball. So I tried and have massive room for improvement.
I am still confused how I can pick up certain weights in some shapes but not in others!
Is it just me?
Jon forced me to try the ropes which I couldn’t do in the light ones but was fine with the heavier ones. Again why is that!
Finally we finished
Although it makes me a bit sad when we leave because I am getting into the rhythm of going to the gym.
I also had to do pull ups.
I told you guys I can’t do this, and it’s an aim of mine to be able to do it with me. I do find the women in the gym inspiring. There bodies are amazing and you know it’s hard work rather than just good genes, starving yourself or help from the knife.
So the pull ups! It was okay yes I was assisted. Yes I struggled but I did 3 reps of 10.
One day I will do ten by myself for now I am in training.
I am really enjoying learning.
I do need to push myself a bit harder but to me that is all about the learning curve.
Happy gym day
