Okay, Health – e’s – today’s post isn’t so much information from me, but a question to you…..I’m wondering what scares you/intimidates or just plain baffles you at the gym or about exercise per se. Or what did do that when you first started exercising?
I’m not talking about the grunting bloke slinging weights in the corner (he’s annoying not scary) but instead things that might be messing with your workout in some way. It might be a bit of equipment you can’t use but would love to; a skill you’d love to master or just a really basic thing you are a bit too embarrassed to ask.
I’ll start as my answer to this is pretty much everything – for example….
I’d absolutely love to play tennis but I can’t hit a ball to save my life
I run right up by the console of the treadmill as I have a fear about falling off the back. This meant when a trainer recently tried to make me move a turned off treadmill simply by running on it (yes, that’s a thing)- I wouldn’t go close enough to the back to make it move!
I can’t plank……it messes up my back. If I try I end up not only not being able to plank, but also not being able to run which seems kind of counterproductive – but I’d love to know how to change that as I’d quite like abs thanks.
I can’t jump on a plyo-box with both feet. Seriously, it is hilarious to watch.
Oh, and I still don’t know exactly what height a spinning bike should be.
Why am I asking this….erm, just ideal curiosity……nothing special. Let’s just call this interactive week on Health-e-Helen. If there is anything though I’d love to hear about it via the little comments bubble.
On which note….don’t forget to enter the Flipbelt giveaway.Oh, and a few of you have signed up to the blog, but didn’t enter the giveaway – that’s fine (waves and smiles at the lovely new people) but if you do want to go in the draw, leave a comment on the post so I know.
