Not through lust or flu, this ache comes but can I tell you how badly my muscles are crying out today?
Really, I ache. So badly.
I can barely type at the keyboard, and I am fretting over how I am ever going to be able to raise my arms to drive the kids to school.
When you have worked out on resistance strength training for an hour in the gym: you know if you have done a good job or not by the ache you get the next day.
Resistance exercise feels quite hard at the time, but not impossible.
I am not lifting olympic sized weights here. Just a few 6kg weights, and then just using my bodies own weight to create resistance and the push pull and lift has worked my muscles in a different way.
Squats, lunges, crunches, sit ups. Push ups and butt lifts. Jumping jacks and a little cardio at the end.
And whilst I do really really ache? It feels great...
Resistance exercise helps to prevent osteoporosis. Resistance training helps to maintain good flexibility. Resistance training also provides functional benefits. Stronger muscles improve posture, provide better support for joints, and reduce the risk of injury from everyday activities. Resistance training makes your body toned and you look better.
What's not to like?! Resistance is not futile...
Do you do any strength or resistance or weight training? Tell me what works for you?
