The Arc

I'm clearly on a roll. The gym 2 days in a row? I'm proud of my will power already.

Yesterday's visit showed me some new delights. I did some resistance training for my arms and some abs and then headed over for some tv watching and cardio. Sadly I was thwarted in my tv watching as I somehow managed to leave the house without my earphones.

On the recommendation of Dana I decides to try the Arc Trainer. This deceptively benign looking machine is anything but. At one point in the work out I was sure that my heart would burst out of my chest. After my hour long cardio session on Monday I was not one bit sore. After 30 minutes on this little beauty I needed a massage and an all over ice pack (not necessarily in that order).

Oh it's good to be a gym rat!
