Good morning and happy Friday! We've just about made it to the weekend. Woo hoo!
I hope all of your weeks have treated you well.
Yesterday I hit up the gym for a nice upper body strength training session. I had planned a bunch of the usual exercises plus some jump roping. As I'm getting settled one of the trainers walks in, we make small talk and somehow the topic of pull ups comes up, so of course i say I can't do one, but it's a goal of mine, to which he says I can do one, to which I laugh. :) So he invites me to work out with him, and of course I said yes.
He's a really good trainer. He thinks outside of the box and uses tools that aren't available to the average gym-goer.
Going by memory I will try to explain what we did.
Remember the rope I mentioned here? Well this was a shorter version and we jumped rope with it. Definitely felt the burn in the shoulders.
Then it was over to push ups with resistance. (not exactly like this, but close)
