Having managed to get out of work on time today, my better half persuaded me to go to her regular Monday night Body Pump class. My body has suddenly remembered about fifty muscles that it forgot were there (or didn’t think existed in the first place).
After fifty minutes of body pumping I was well and truly aching and had developed a strange ‘clicky neck’ which was much worse to think about than it was to actually experience. Buttoning my shirt in the changing room reminded me of being back at school after a cold PE lesson with that “just…one…more…button…” feeling.
I remain unconvinced about the benefits of body pump as a general workout but it did make me move my muscles for once and it was great to go with my wife-to-be, so let’s see what happens next week!
