Thanks, Ma! Trying to get friends to sign up. Another one did today.

Today's workout was FPFL. There are 4 types of workouts in this program: lactic acid, density, strength, and something else. You do one of each per week. I think this was lactic acid but I forget and don't wanna bring up my spreadsheet now. The thing that's cool/wonky about this particular workout is the timing. For example, the squats were 1 second down, 3 seconds up. The lunges were like that too. Boy, is that a hard way to do lunges. By the third time thru, I was really struggling to get to end. It was walking lunges, just 12 reps each leg and I only had 15 pound weights but I was dragging!

And the last superset was too much for me. I am really going to have to work on abs. One of the exercises was a hanging leg raise. I could not do this even one time with straight legs and it was supposed to be 2 seconds up, 2 down. I did knee ups. I sure hope that was close enough. And even so, I had to take a few breaks before getting to 10 reps. So yeah, a really weak point for me, obviously. I was already thinking that an abs workout would be on the agenda for the next TT workout. I am thinking I need to really push the abs stuff more. So if a plank is 30 seconds, I need to do at least a minute.

I just found out my gym has a kind of ab roller thingy behind the desk today so I used that a little. That would be easier if my shoulder wasn't still bothering me! Still can barely do one single pushup and it's been ages. I am now waiting for someone to get back from a week long zumba convention so she can work on my shoulder. She comes highly recommended and it's really time to start paying attention to getting this healed.
