I was a bit frustrated yesterday at the gym going through my upper body routine with Cynthia, my trainer. She had a bunch of routines for me that I could not perform due to my shoulder, a piercing pain that is still there and I cannot ignore but just have to rest for now. I am longing for my bench press, those tough chest exercises that proves I’m not in the Jane Fonda club of headbands, 2-lb dumbbell pushing, leg warmer type of league anymore. Luckily I still have my beloved pull ups, and although I will have to stay put with my measly 35 lb set of dumbbell chest presses for now, I can still brag that I am now able to pull my body weight of 136 lbs up through a wide grip pull up a few times .. 🙂
Tomorrow is lower body, luckily one part of my body that hasn’t given out on me yet… In the mean time, posting my upper body status as of April 15th, 2010 – my abs have definitely popped out more since my last check-in, just in time for spring. Just wait until the summer, that six pack WILL be present, yo!
