I really hate getting up at 4:30. Alas, I’m home by 9 with three meals eaten, and I’ve got a full day ahead of me. (Coffee will be my friend today).
Felt great again this morning. Also saw one of the most stupid things, ever. Some fitness/bodybuilding girl (I could tell by her Flag nor Fail hoodie) had the reverse hyper loaded with 180 pounds – I thought that was odd, given that’s a ton of weight for a little person. Then she proceeded to double a strong band around the swing arm from the front of the machine, step into the band and put it around her hips, and then did what I guess was a good morning, but the net resistance was the band against her hips, which maybe moved two inches. I considered asking her what she thought she was doing (I get asked why I’m using chains), but I was afraid I might laugh or make a face, so I used the 45 degree hyper instead.
