Day 44, Thoom!

Today I was going to take some photos about how to do "flys" with the resistance band, mimicking the movements of half a dozen expensive gym machines. But about 15 minutes into my workout, my band broke! I was doing some shoulder training and "snap!" the rubber came apart near the left handle.

I've been wailing on that band for, well, 44 days, so I'm not too upset. The set came with two other bands and the whole thing cost about 10 dollars, so, I can't complain. And I remember at the beginning of the project when just doing 6 reps on the band was so awkward and hard. I'd be lying if I didn't say it was a proud moment, being so badass that my equipment can't keep up with me. Very Incredible Hulk.

(Except instead of bursting through my clothes they're falling off me.)

I'll try to get those photos tomorrow, if the bands can handle my brute strength.

Hee! I understand how that made you feel! I felt that way when I went in for a shot (in my butt) at the Dr. and the needle tip bent! I dunno, might have been a problem with the needle's integrity, but it's when I was at the hight of training for that Century ride I did. I walked around thinking "I have buns of steel!" for about a week! :-)
