Getting Those Gains!

I’ve caught the weight lifting bug.  It is very serious! Ever since I started taking weight lifting classes at  Sweat Equity, I’ve learned that I can really push myself. I love the fact that after each exercise, I am thoroughly fatigued. It makes me feel accomplished and stronger than I was when I entered the room.

I wouldn’t be able to do the same kind of “work” while at a normal gym.

Despite a feel bruises, I’ve already noticed that I am getting stronger every single day. Encouragement from others helps me complete every set.

Everyone wants to hear, “You got this girl. You’re a beast, get it.” I mean who wouldn’t? 😉

I’ve been informed that I need to reduce my cardio each week to just 30-45 minutes. Each cardio session should involve intervals or high intensity work. I don’t want to break down the muscle that I’ve gained. This is hard for me to hear, but if it will benefit me in the long run, then I’ll take it into consideration.

I was pumped yesterday when one of our exercises included running 6 laps around the building for time. I knew that I had this in the bag. I did pretty well overall, but I cannot wait to see how my times improve each week.

You know that I will be keeping you informed. 😀

When was the last time that you pushed yourself to the max?

Do you weight lift?

What is your favorite type of exercise?
