When our trainer said he was going to use the TRX to whip us into shape, I didn’t think he meant literally:
2. The fact that I am concentrating so hard – as evidenced by my durn-all-these-new-fangled-contraptions-and-their-tiny-buttons facial expression – and yet I still forgot to move the camera strap. Or suck in my stomach. You’d think I’d never used a digital camera before.
3. My awesome shower curtain. It’s cleanliness and an education, all in one! Only downside is if my kids wander into the bathroom (as they are wont to do – privacy, whaaaa?) then I have to hide strategically. Thank goodness this is a Mercator projection map so South America is overly large!
4. Oh yeah – and my war wounds! First day of HIIT bootcamp and our trainer had us doing these squat-jump-swing things on the TRX. (Okay technically there’s not supposed to be any swinging with the squat-jumping – I just can’t help myself, it’s too fun!) The TRX schooled me good and then slapped me around a bit for getting smart with it. Yes, there’s a matching set of scrapes and bruises on the other side!
What do you think – is leaving marks the mark of a good workout? Do you have any battle scars from the gym you’re particularly proud of? You’ve seen lots of my shower curtain – what does yours look like?
