Body Pump Challenge

After taking my second ever Body Pump class with Courtney and Melissa yesterday, I am extremely sore today. My legs are bit sore but not as bad as my chest and arms. I had been putting it off for a while because I had a few races, but now I’m in clear for a while.

This makes me realize that my upper body is extremely out of shape. However, my legs are like steel. I can run a half marathon but I can hardly do 10 modified push ups. My upper body is very flabby! This is going to change!

(thanks Courtney for the photo!)

Now I have access to a Body Pump class as often as I’d like. I’m going to challenge myself because I want to tone and strengthen my upper body! Also I think it will help me athletically.

I’m going to go to Body Pump 2x a week for the next six weeks and then I’m going to analyze my results. (And yes, I’m relying on YOU Courtney and Melissa to motivate me to go!)

  1. My upper body is SO weak and I definitely need to start doing strength training.

    I love body pump classes and I’m sad I can’t afford a gym with them 🙁 I used to go to them all the time at my old gym, you always feel so good after even if you want to die at certain points of the class, lol 🙂
