That’s a big accomplishment for me! These past few days have been horrible. In the workout and regular life. First night was the eye thing, 2nd was plyometrics… and that was abysmal. I got these long legs, but they are lazy legs. The legs… I’m like if a majestic gazelle didn’t like running in the savannah, but used to play a lot of World of Warcraft and had a lvl 80 female Draenei mage.
But tonight I found somethin’ to get a foothold in. It was my shoulders and triceps. Wanna give a shout out to my guy Marcos, ’cause without him I woulda been dead 3 days in a row. He wasn’t here, helpin’ me or anything, but in the past few months I’ve gone to the gym with him, on occasion, and we did arms, shoulder, back- the flashy ones. I think this kept them warm, so I didn’t have to quit any workout.
I tried to maintain my form and I’m still finding the correct weights (resistance bands).
Bonus: I wore my lab goggles from college. I figure if they can handle explosions, they can probably handle a little snap of a resistance band. We’ll see… I’m probably wrong.
It feels like I smacked myself in the eye with a giant rubber band. February 24, 2010Posted by abowersock in Exercise and Diet.

That’s because I DID smack myself in the eye with a giant rubberband.
I told you guys I had no idea what I’m doing. Safety first. Resistance straps are slippery. They don’t always grip well between your shoes and the CARPET.
Lesson learned: I need to use that yoga mat to trap that resistance band.
I heard it release from the toe of my shoe, then saw a flash of light. Then I screamed “MOTHER FUCKER!”
