- Gym machines are boring
- CrossFit is sadistic
- dieting sucks
Is that what you think about fitness?
Well, Gyms in general give me the creeps. That small area of sweaty people, sorry not me. My olfactory senses are highly developed and I can’t stand bad odors.
And what about CrossFit which incorporates elements from high-intensity interval training, Olympic weightlifting, plyometrics, powerlifting, gymnastics, girevoy sport, calisthenics, strongman, and other exercises.
I don’t even know what some of those words mean, with out googling them? And you want me to use them?
Guys (and girls) don’t you realize that I am not even fit enough (or for that matter have the time ) to do a lot of training. And then you are trying to sell my high-intensity training?
Dieting, you must be joking. I have never met anyone that has lost weight and actually kept it off. Have you?
I like to eat what I feel like, whether that is chocolate or and apple.
I need to start slow, eat what I want and not train with high intensity, some thing easy for me and my back.
Give me a smartphone with some good music or an interesting book, and let me walk, first very slow (heh, remember I have been out of shape for years), then I will increase my strides and then, if I am still not out of breath and my heart rate is not yet above normal, I will walk faster. And at the end of my (at least 1 mile walk) I will do some exercises.
Now, that is a good start for me. Oh yes, and stairs. Poooh, am I out of breath when I walk up the stairs. But they say it is good for you.
Well, what about Yoga? Hmm let’s talk about that one in another post.
Every morning,I also do some exercises in bed. No, not what you mean, that is extra-curriculum, I mean lifting legs up and down, until they get to heavy, laying on my back in the embryo position and rolling from site to site, exercises like that. Seems to get me going before my first cup of coffee.
Leave me a comment what you think is good for a beginner. Or even what exercises you are doing,
I will share it and then we can compare.
