Typing this as I watch some playoff basketball, the first sport I truly loved. Did a full-body workout after work today, consisted of the following:
Leg Press (3×15)
Standing Shoulder Press (3×15)
Walking Lunges (4×10)
Calf Raises (2×20)
Push-ups (feet on bosu ball, each hand on a medicine ball; 4×20)
Planks (front and each side; 3 x 30 seconds)
Lateral Raises (3×10)
Straight Bar Curl (3×15)
I’ve found the most important part is none of what I just typed (although full body workouts make me feel much better than the bodybuilding style one/two muscle group workouts did) and that is the stretching i do both before and after. I know a lot of fitness literature doesn’t call for stretching, but from what I’ve read, those with either fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis or autoimmune disease in general, the way stretching relieves the inflammation you are inflicting on your body durring workouts is completely necessary. With that being said, I hate stretching, loathe it.
Ran tuesday morning for about 2.54 miles. Trying to get my body used to doing something every single day, and after it is used to it I will gradually start increasing the distance and time I’m exercising every day.
Well, Heat game is getting good, gotta go watch…
