Tried the latest iTrain last night – iStrength with Nick… this involves lots of weights and different bodyparts and gym equipment. Unfortunatly our gym isn’t as well equipped as it should be so had to kind of make up alternatives. Also i’m a bit of a klutz around barbells and so at one stage found myself trapped under the barbell with too much weight on it and I couldn’t get out. Nick was yelling in my ear ‘ thats it, now LIFT, exhale, YEAH! you can do it, Great form! You are on your way to a new body!’. While actually I had the giggles and was being strangled by a dumbell with 20 pounds on it that had me pinned to the bench. Managed to do a kind of sideways slide that left me in an ungraceful pile on the floor with Nick still shouting ‘YOU CAN DO IT! Look at those biceps, FEEL the squeeze, LOVE the squeeze!’
We then moved onto push ups. I know there are probably lots of people who can do push ups really well, but seriously, if you are fit enough to do them would you really need a personal trainer off the internet? I got into the lying position all ready to go and Nick says ‘ALL RIGHT, let do it, lets work those arms! Now Push up! One, Two, Three, Four!.’ I was like wtf, I still trying to straighten my elbows for number one and he’s up to number four! C’mon Nick, have some pity for us weaklings. I made it to 3 by the time he was up to 12, and then watched the news on the telly while he puffed through 2 more sets. ‘LOVE the pain, feel that BURN. That burn is getting you a NEW BODY. INHALE, EXHALE. Great Form!’
I love that Nick is so optimistic. He never hesitates to compliment me on my form, no matter if I’m watching TV, lying on the floor drinking water or making a pathetic attempt to copy his moves. What a guy.
Later this week… iSculpt, where Grace tries to get me to do yoga and ballet moves while sculpting my lower body. Sounds like there is a great potential for klutziness there, thank god for noone else wanting to use the gym in the evenings.
