I Hurt

Today I went to the gym for the first time in many months. My new “personal trainer” is Elliot and he just started this lifting and workout program called Cross Fit. It’s designed somewhat around olympic power lifting and I guess it’s supposed to make you the most fit by being well rounded or something.

Elliot is PSYCHO!! I thought I was gonna throw up 2/3 of the way through the warm up!! That’s all I did by the way. This thing is insane. The warm up alone is 15 seconds on each side of this squat stretch first. Then with an olympic bar you do 5 shrugs, 5 arm raise to 90 degrees, 5 lifts over your head, 5 overhead with a jump and squat, and 10 squats. Then you do 10-15 bicycle situps, 10 back extensions, 10 pull-ups, and 10 dips…then do it all 2 more times!! That’s not a warm up, that a stinkin workout!

Anyway, my quads hurt the most, but I think I’ll be feelin it everywhere tomorrow. I think I’ll have to work up to finishing a warm up. We’re supposed to do this routine of 3 days work then 1 day rest. We’ll see how it goes tomorrow. If I am actually able to stick with this, I better get ripped or somethin.
