ouch

Lifting heavy weights hurts more than lifting lighter weights. Who knew?

On the happy side of the agony equation, heavy weights make me feel like a lead-booted kickass hard core wench. I'll need black leather workout clothes and some brass knuckles if I'm ever able to walk again. It probably says something about my psyche that I think this is fun.

I used to be that wench too. Now I tend to be more of a yoga bitch.

Welcome to the club honey. I suggest Icey Hot. Is this your first experience with free weights or just moving up on them? I am told to workout smart, not hard. Keep us posted. Oh yeah, wet heat, heating pad. I know what you mean about the perversity of it, but the good news is that it does get easier.

Tell you what, you lift, I'll watch and count.

Good for you, BAB. I admire your determination.

Pain is good...when it comes to muscle pain that is. I always find peace of mind knowing that I'm making the muscles work.

Keep it up Lynette...after a nice hot bath.
