As you all are beyond aware (and I’m sure, certainly board hearing about it twice a week) I take a Body Pump class and a Zumba class at the Big City gym every Saturday and as often on Tuesday nghts as I can get there. Today – well, it’s Tuesday and . . . I got there . . . for a double shot of group fitness. BUT today was unlike the other times – why you ask? Because “C” and Kimberly were there too – F.U.N! Such a fun occasion and yet such a bad blogger – no photos . . . so please just visualize for yourself (insert mental picture here).
Tonight was also a benchmark, so to speak – I bumped up my weights for the back track and the biceps . . .oh man, oh man, oh man – no doubt I’ll be regretting the increase tomorrow. For the first time this month, I broke out the big plates (maybe they are 10 kg or 15 kg each) – oh yeah baby! Because I’ve increased my weights for biceps, triceps, squats, chest, and back I know I’m getting stronger. I still SUCK at lunges and fear they will never get easier. I was able to do more reps tonight than ever before so that’s at least a small glimmer or improvement.
The trio will be back together for another double up Saturday session – photos will definitely be taken – stay tuned!
Do you lift weights? If so, do you increase the reps or the weight? And, how often do you bump things up?
