I’m now in the second week of my new fitness regime set by my instructor Phil. He has got me working out on the weight machines three times a week with two days spent just doing a leisurely 25 minute run on the treadmill. Today I’ll be going down for the treadmill but yesterday I went for the burn on the machines. Phil has got me doing three set of fifteen repetitions with the stress move done with explosive speed until I can push no longer. It is tiring but exhilarating and nothing is as challenging as the leg press machine done at speed with one minute rests between repetitions. I am truly out of breath after each rep if i push myself to my limit.
This is a great exercise if you want to appreciate putting your feet up on the sofa when you get home – that’s exactly what I did last night thinking i might never get up again. This morning I’m feeling good so I must be improving a bit with each session. I’ll be back on those machines tomorrow.
