I think it's kind of funny that a person that's as active as you would need to weight train , on the other hand maybe me ? That's different I need to !
I've been nowhere near as active since surgery. Since the neck surgery, I've tended of course to baby anything that pulls on my neck, which is basically everything above the waste. My muscles were staying taught and all in a bind. What is strange is how my arms look the same, but I don't seem to have near the strength in them. I seem to still have as strong a grip as ever though, but then again, making a grip doesn't pull on the neck, so my forearms weren't affected so much. When I have had to do heavy lifting etc, it has left me sore and hurting, so that shows me I'm way out of shape from how I was before surgery.
I need to get as limbered up as possible before going to work come March so it won't be as hard on me, and so I can do a good job for them. Besides being my bosses, the guys at Southern States are also my friends, so I don't want to let them down, or myself for that matter. Besides, I'm not getting any younger, and getting in better shape would be a good thing.
My biggest problem is where to put a stack gym. They take up a 3x6' area, and Teresa has her treadmill in the bedroom and there's no more room in there. She uses it regularly too. Guess I'd have to put whatever I got upstairs, which isn't handy at all.
Oh, and kinda sore from exercising last night!
