Personal Trainer Man (as he is now deemed) came to G-Man’s t-ball game on Saturday and we started chatting about work outs which inevitably got me to complaining. I HATE my arms and I was telling him the arm part of the elliptical machine is useless because I never feel ANYTHING! He then asked me how I was using them. I look at him like he was an idiot and said “I hold on to them and move back and forth with the machine, duh.”
Personal Trainer Man than enlightened me that I actually had to push and pull on them, not just let the machine move my arms for me, to get anything out of it. OOOOOHHHHHH!!!! That was NOT written in the owner’s manual.
So as of this weekend, I have a set work-out routine which I am hoping to do 3-4 times a week if not more:
30 min on elliptical (with actually utilizing my arms)
Arm weights – I have been doing three moves I remember Personal Trainer Man teaching me years ago in my two week stint to get fit. I will eventually Google the sweet exercise routines he carefully planned for me.
