I must say, I'm feeling very SLACK with not exercising 5-6 days a week. The two days I have worked out, I ONLY did the 6 repetitions (of 8 machines) to the count of 20 and that feels so foreign. However, I must say that this short workout did indeed kick my backside....I was exhausted walking up the driveway after my workout.

I don't have the count down perfectly yet - many times I hit the top of the lift and still had 2-3 'beats' left to my count but I think that will get better with practice.

Georgene, please keep posting on your process - it's good to have someone else starting out doing this - we can encourage each other!

Cheers-
You gain when you recover from exercise not when you exercise. Never forget this. Don't beat yourself up, build yourself up.
