well, I dunno if the day I had off sent me slightly nutty, but after doing pump at 6am, balance at 11.30am………when I got to my 7pm pump class I still had energy in me for a stupid challenge. I say stupid, cuz this one I lost……lol.
Ready to Go is a hard enough squat track as it is, but I decided to go ahead and do 30kg in that track………and that’s a weight I’ve only tried twice before and nearly died. But I did it, and survived. I think Alex was kinda impressed……….30kg for a girl anyway.
But then we got to lunges. I figured I’d have a go at 20kg in lunges which I’ve done many times before, but then someone pointed at Alexander’s bar and pointed out the 30kg he had on his bar. I groaned. There’s NO WAY in the world I could do 30kg lunges…….not with good form. Or could I? Oh geesh, so I put 30kg weight on the bar (what was I THINKING). Then, Alex immediately upped his weight to 40kg……….oh right………ok, so we got Alex up on the stage. Me doing 30kg, and Alex doing 40kg.
The track was Breathe from BP58…….not a particularly easy track, but thankfully it was without the bench. I couldn’t believe how well I actually did, I felt strong enough to battle with the weight, until the last set of singles. I could feel my range of motion starting to falter and I could feel my form about to get shaky. I haveÂ 1 rule in pump, I NEVER give up and put the bar down……..however I also have a second rule, I do not continue with bad form. The second rule won.
Alexander thought that was quite amusing………grrrrr
The members also thought it was quite amusing me struggling like hell whilst Alex was doing it easy………grrr
Hell…….it was fun though! I’m guessing my legs are gonna hurt tomorrow!
