Hi all. I have just finished one hour of exercises. I began as usual with the 5 minutes warmup on the treadmill. That’s the easy part. Then I spent 10 minutes on stretches. I realised that I was doing the hamstring stretch wrong and once I corrected it, I could feel the pull on the hamstring. That’s always a good test. If the name of the exercise is for triceps, then that’s what you should feel stretching.
Then I completed two sets of the resistance exercises. There are 13 different exercises. Some are definitely less enjoyable than others. The ‘arm press’ which involves use of the resistance tube is hard on the arm muscles. My left arm has a weakness in the bicep muscle so I hope that I can bring that up to the same level as my right arm. At the moment I am supposed to do between 8-12 repeats of each exercise (then 8-12 again). So I do 10, rest, then another 10. By the end of the week I probably should be up to 12 and 12.
I had the tv on today and ‘Friends’ was on. That certainly makes it a more fun atmosphere. I’m looking forward to a snack and a coffee right now. Off on my walk tomorrow. Have a good day.
