As a teenager I was pretty sporty and wiry: 1.78m (5"10') and 60kg (132lbs). I'm now 30, and weigh about 72kgs (160lbs) - with most of the extra weight being in my (beer) belly :roll:
I don't necessarily want to lose weight or to become really muscular, but I do want to improve my general fitness and my upper body and back strength.
It's been a while since I've actively exercised, but after finding this site I thought "what the hey", and started the next morning, last Friday, on Level 1.
Feb 20: L1D1 - 15
Feb 21: 10 minute jog (about 1.5km)
I usually struggle with push-ups, but in comparison with the pull-ups they were easy!
I was going to do L1D2 today, but I am way too sore! My whole upper body aches and I've coated myself in Tiger Balm, but it's not helping too much. Wow :shock: But as they say: no pain, no gain. Right?
I'll do L1D2 tomorrow morning and report back.
Any suggestions for the soreness?
