It’s Wednesday and I have submitted myself to the expert training methods of my son, @micahwelchfit! 😃🙌🏽
Before I describe this experience, I have to first say how thankful I am to not only be alive 🙏🏽, but to have a body that is functional in most, if not all, practical and physical ways.
As any good personal trainer should, my son asked me about my goals. 📝 I explained (more like rambled) to him that, “While I’m not trying to be a bodybuilder or enter any physique competitions, I do want to be happy with the way I look. I want to feel stronger, have more energy, and take acceptable selfies that aren’t contingent upon the angle of my phone.” 🙃
Not surprisingly, he was able to take my verbosity and correctly interpret it to mean better muscle tone, higher definition, wrapped around a whole-body, active-induced health goal.
Basically, he was like, “No problem. I got you. 😏”
He then proceeded to put my 47-year-old body (bio age 43, thank you) through a series of excruciatingly… effective exercises that I’d never heard of, let alone performed… like, on purpose. 😳
Among a few isometric activities, today’s menu consisted of weighted wall sits, sumo squats, forward and side lunges, with a side order of shoulder presses.🏋🏽♂️
When it was all said and done, I’d burned nearly 500 calories through strength training alone. I know I’m going to feel this tomorrow (and probably for the next week). But it was sooooo worth it! 😃💪🏽
Thanks Coach! 👍🏽
