As I briefly mentioned today over on my own space, I reintroduced myself to my old friend OOF yesterday by doing curls for the first time in ages. Now I’m in pain every time I try to straighten my arms. And I thought I was taking it easy. Not easy enough, obviously!
I’m going to try y’all’s patience by listing my workout. Not that I think any of you will want to duplicate it, or critique it, or anything like that…just that I feel like listing it will make me at least live up to it later, if not (hopefully) improve it. So I hope you’ll indulge me from time to time in an exercise in self-accountability.
Yesterday’s “working up from wussitude (I hope)” workout:
Pull-ups (weight assisted): 1 warm-up, 2 sets x 10 reps of medium weight, 3 sets x 10 light-medium weight (read: I had to wuss out)
Bent-over rows: 1 set x 8 reps medium weight, 2 sets x 10 light-medium weight (ditto)
Preacher curls w/ curl bar: 1 warm-up, 4 sets x 10 reps of medium weight (alternating inside/outside grip)
Hammer curls: 1 set x 10, light-medium weight, 2 sets x 10 light weight
Straight-leg lifts: 2 sets x 20
Cardio: 30 minutes of hill interval on the elliptical
Result: Asleep by 9:40 pm, next day OOWWWWWWWch. Yeah…
