Le studio transformed:
I hear my friends blogging about exercising and all. My wife exercises, but she has an unusual metabolism: she is five seven and between 100-110 pounds, and eats like a horse. I am only an inch taller, but weigh more.
Anyway, I had been a runner, marathoner and even a cross country and track coach back in the 90s, and retired from running in 2003. (AND MY BACK HAS BEEN SO HAPPY SINCE!!!!) But at that time, I substituted walking, and had no upper body strength. NONE. Couldn't do a chinup!
Well, these last five years we bought weights and this rower and they lie in the corner of the studio and provide me with sweaty fun several times a week. 50 chinups, 75 situps, pushups, bench presses, curls etc.
I can't say I enjoy it, but it allows me to keep up with the wife and be a somewhat sexy and youthful hunk of burning love for her to enjoy.
