Have now had 4 sessions with Brad the personal trainer, and it’s turned out to be the best thing I could have done. There’s no way I would have worked so hard left to my own devices. Even though it’s only 30 minutes, I’m completely knackered afterwards.
Tonight was upper body. A set of 5 exercises – crunches, tricep dips, kettlebell swinging, pushups where you take your hands off the floor when you get down there – can’t remember the proper name for them – and pulling yourself up from the floor to a bar (metal, not cocktail) – has reduced my arms to useless lumps of meat dangling from aching shoulders.
The euphoria afterwards is amazing though, and it’s a lot of fun.
Neil’s got an assessment with him tomorrow night (I’m surprised he’s agreed to try it) so I’ve asked Brad to make sure he makes him do push ups and planks till he drops ha ha ha 🙂
