It’s suffice to say that I am suffering from Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. I also suffer from movie star good looks, a high opinion of myself and uncontrolled modesty. However, that’s for another post. My triceps are sore and my chest is quite literally burning.
Again another fast and furious session — I was done in 30 minutes. Five sets on the big moves like leg press and four sets on the smaller moves. I also do a lot of supersets which make the session go faster. I have no plans for squats with the bar. I remember those days and my back suffered. I can do all I need to on the hip sled or fancy leg press machine.
- Saw a few muscle heads that are way stronger that I am. I am almost certain I could kick and probably punch harder than most of them. (assuming they have no martial training) This initially was the case with Tornado from the taekwondo days. He trained for triathlons on the side and was an animal. At first I could hand him his ass, but as he neared the mid-belt range I could barely hold him. Even our 1st and 2nd dans were having trouble with him.
- Did not make it to the college gym mainly because I had enough of day one on the new job. So I again went to the Soviet style YMCA. I plan to check out the college gym early tomorrow morning. If it has the needed equipment I’ll be working out there.
- I’m supplementing the post weight sessions with Ensure muscle health shakes. It has “REVIGOR” which supposedly helps us 40-something old farts recover.
Let the age jokes begin.
