Challenge Day One

Jen has come down with a horrible fever and has been out of it all day. I wasn’t about to push her to working out in this condition so I’ve started the challenge on my own. Tonight was pretty easy.  The reps were small and mainly I wanted to get used to the movements.  I think it went fairly well.

Tonight’s workout:

Push-ups: 2, 3, 2, 2, max (I did 6)

Sit-ups: 3, 4, 3, 3, max (I did 20)

Squats: 3, 4, 3, 3, max (I did 13)

Lessons learned: 

1)  I need some push-up bars.  My wrists are weak and I need to get some bars to alleviate pressure on the wrists.

2)  While I have to watch sit-ups because of my back, this is my strong area.

3)  Squats sure make my joints creak.  I felt like an old rotting boat.

4)  Do not attempt exercise in the same room as a neurotic dog!

i can't do any floor exercise with my dogs in the room. they think it's playtime and they are too big to play with like that!

I have scoliosis too. I roll kinda to one side when I do my crunches, and sometimes I'll get a twinge but for the most part it doesn't bother me when I'm doing ab work. Of course, it all depends on where your curve is. Great job on day 1!
