I was reading the Statesman this morning and there was an article about working out that indicated that if one is very, very sore after a workout, that person is doing something wrong and may not be getting all that much good out of those workouts.
Now I know I am the resident designated whiner because I am old and fat and don't work all that hard but I would like Jim's comments after he reads the article. I am so sore today I can barely walk. However, I realize that anyone else who did the workout (3 rounds of 30 push-ups, 15 pull-ups, or in my case rowing pull-ups, and 100 squats) is probably not very sore at all. BUT, the article indicated that if you are that sore after a workout, you are not getting maximum benefit out of the exercise. SO, Jim, what do you think? You will note that the author of the article thought that if a person is very, very sore after a workout, maybe his/her instructor is just a mean person. I know you are a mean person and I have always known this because you make me do things I would never have thought of doing before I met you. I also know, and you know, that this is just me kidding you. You and your kettlebells are the best thing that ever happened to me, as far as exercise, with the possible exception of TKD, which is how I met you. So while I do not really think you are a mean person, I would like to know whether I may be doing something wrong. It may also be that since I am just coming back after an injury that I should keep my mouth closed and keep working out and quit complaining. All of which I intend to do. However, I would still like your comments on the article. Also, do you think I should start drinking a whey shake after workouts?
For everybody else out there, watch out for Seth, he is becoming a monster. I think he is Jim's experiment.
