Personal training update - Week 1

And so it starts. All my life I have been avoiding push-ups, but after 57 years they have caught up with me. My new personal trainer – Gamell at MyFitness on Memorial Drive – likes push-ups a lot and I am doing several different kinds of them (elevated, involving an exercise ball, combined with scissor jumps & more) during every session. Why have I been avoiding push-ups all these years? Because they overtax my weak upper body. Why does Gamell think I need to do (more) of them? Because they target my weak upper body, naturally.

The pic was taken on December 31 2009, one week after starting to work with a personal trainer. Weight = 168 lbs.

Happy New Year!

I've heard that if you could only do one exercise, it should be decline push-ups.
