I think my Personal Trainer is trying to kill me!

I started my new schedule last night and suspect Corinne takes pleasure in inflicting pain and humiliation on us, lol. What a kick ass workout. It was upper body and left me completely taxed. I tried higher weights last night and had to move down quickly on some of them.

To give a feel for how this taxed me, during warm-up I did 5 regular push-ups just because. That's on the toes, baby. By the third superset I was asked to do 10 wide pup's. I could only do 8 on the first set, 7 on the second set, and by the third set it was obvious that 1 inch on each was all I could do or end up with face on the floor. All of these were done on my knees. Next upper body routing I'll switch to the wall - so humiliating.

By the 4th superset I was expected to do bearcrawls. Ladies, I've done these at home in the past - a lot of these, but doing them in the gym is another thing. Suck it up and get on with it though. As these came at the end of the last superset they were less than eloquent.

Oh well, my upper body is taxed and I expect to feel crazy pain by tomorrow.

I love that post-workout feeling. You're doing such a good thing for your body. Good for you!

Sounds like you had an awesome work out! You are doing so great! About your post below... I have the same issue with my husband but it's food, not alcohol that he pushes on me... Sometimes I think he's trying to sabotage me... I always just try to stop, in the moment, and nicely explain to him WHY I need him to stop feeding me... How did things work out with your hub?
