The DOMS from yesterday’s first Nia Shanks “minimal training for maximum effects” workout is starting to kick in. I learned how to use the Smith rack as the NH Planet Fitness has ZERO regular squat racks or bars and plates. I also stopped being afraid of the assisted pull up machine – I want to get to the point where I can do them unassisted. Oh, and farmers walks are deceptive. I liked her program because it was so simple and straight forward.
After fussing, fiddling and being uncomfortable all day at work yesterday, I busted out Nia Shanks Minimal Training for Maximum Restults (MTMR from now on since I’m lazy) Day 2 at the gym. I even convinced Jess to come with me.
The weights area of my Planet Fitness has more basic barbells & squat racks than the NH one, but it was also a testosterone fest. Mreh. I waltzed in in my hot pink shirt with my Barbie pink manicure and did my thing. What I liked a lot about Day 2’s exercises is they worked each side independently. I’m definitely much weaker on the left than the right. And now I get to appreciate that deliciously sore feeling all day until my 5k tonight.
