"Fail to prepare. Prepare to fail."
My gym membership ends soon and, after three years, I have decided not to renew it. Most of the exercises I do, I could do at home. Also, my personnal trainer, Marjorie, has agreed to continue putting together my strength and core training programs for me. There is a spare room downstairs that has a partly mirrored wall and this will become our gym. We are also buying a treadmill soon, a must when you live in my part of the northern hemisphere. Yay!
This means we have to start getting a few pieces of fitness gear. Finally, here are the pieced of equipment that I chose:
We have the resistance tube and the ankle/wrist weights.
Lifting 8lbs and working my abductor.
The adductor now.
Please, do not look at my form for guidance, I was trying to look at the camera and so I got a little twisted :)
The resistance tube is great for stretching. I got the medium resistance tube, but I would suggest the heavy resistance.
I'm really excited to add these two pieces of fitness gear to my new home gym.
Running update: I ran 10K yesterday and the knee and ankle did good. No ankle pain at all and only very mild and fleeting knee pain. I'm going to attempt a 15K long run on Sunday. Send happy knee vibes my way!
