Quats? Lunges? Do I have to????

Friday, April 08, 2011

Quats and lunges! These are two exercises I can honestly say " I hate doing ". I just don't know why it is, but it is. Maybe because they hurt my knee's all that bending and all. I am sitting here tonight trying to figure a way out of the strength training class I have first thing in the morning. The instructor has a thing for quats/lunges. The first half of the class is these two exercises. Up and down the gym for half an hour. Booorrring!! But now that I have better control over my weight, I have learned to respect the power of strength train. I was thinking about throwing 52 cards on the floor and playing 52 pick up, at least I would be putting some fun in the game. I could even pick them up dancing to my favorite tunes. LOL emoticon I am so happy with myself because the things I have tried dearly to stay away from ( elliptical ) I have been challenging full force. I finally got on the elliptical and seriously went to work. What a ride. I didn't know how difficult that machine was until today. I was a calorie burning machine. That is on the list of exercise for tomorrow also. I am still trying to find my way around those darn quats and lunges though!!!! emoticonI will see our this will pan out and let all know!!

    I hated squats and lunges until I realized that they were the very thing I needed to shape my legs, which is what I really wanted. The fact that they're hard and they burn means that they're WORKING. It gets easier the more you do them - we do a TON of them in Body Pump, and I'm trying to love them. In fact just this morning my instructor kept telling us to tell ourselves, "I love lunges!" and we were all laughing because it's such a love/hate relationship. :) Good luck!

    It is important to find something you enjoy. Maybe you can find another exercise to do in place of them.
