Of course every time I attempt to switch up my routine, I have to consult with my buddy, the personal trainer. And believe me, he was happy to help me do so. He first reviewed what I have been doing the last few weeks and he said it looked like the routine was effective. But he agreed with me, that it was time for a change, to help me get to the next level. And right after he said that, he looked at me with a smile and said let's challenge you a little more. All I could think about was how easy it will be for me to fall asleep tonight and how sore I was going to be, waking up tomorrow morning.
The new weight lifting routine involves more of the stability ball and a lot more alternating exercises. At first I thought it was going to be easy to transition into the new routine but after the first set of exercises, I was feeling it. I also noticed that it took me a lot longer than usual to finish just the first set. It turns out, that it took me about a half an hour longer to finish the entire routine. I was sweating so much at the end, that I think I will be more prepared on the next lifting day by bringing 2 bottles of water instead of just 1. I am glad that I decided to switch up the routine today and believe me I can already feel the difference in my body. Until tomorrow my friends, have a great night!
