I'm loving strongman (strongchick) training!
Yesterday was the second session of the 6-week Strongman/woman Overhaul at Function Well. Michelle missed the session because she was racing in a rowing regatta on the coast (3rd place - nice work).
With Michelle away I was partnered up with a lovely (very muscly) lady - Linda - who kept me on my toes for the whole session. Very encouraging and motivating. A good training partner.
The session was same format as last week, same exercises but with an extra exercise on the end (so an extra 5min round). Even though the weights went up on almost all exercises, and we were working harder and for longer, I didn't feel as sick during yesterday's session and I recovered quicker. (Phew... what a relief...) I guess last week my body just went into a bit of a meltdown - I hadn't trained like that for a long long time.
Today (just like last Sunday), Marina, Michelle and I did a mini-strongchick session at the gym and were sweating like pigs. What a great feeling. We also tried out some new exercises today with the strength bands, and I'll be putting a few clients through these workouts over coming weeks.
Since starting the strongman training, I'm feeling great, my abs feel tighter, my diet has changed dramatically and I'm feeling really motivated.
Here's the video from yesterday's session. Check it out!
