We’re having our first jujitsu class tonight, the first in many months. I can’t remember the last time I trained regularly.
Actually, yes I can. Before Covid.
Since then it’s been very intermittent. Even if it hadn’t been for Ms Rona getting up in everyone’s grill, I doubt I could have trained much the last 12 months anyway. I seemed to either be sick, or injured or recovering from surgery most of the time.
I’m feeling okay now, though, and I slowly, carefully getting my fitness back. My doctor doesn’t want me doing any intense cardio for another 5-6 weeks, but she’s cool with strength training so I bought myself a new toy and it finally arrived.
At my age it’s a better investment than a Harley or an MG.
It’s going to be difficult driving that thing around town.
That looks badass. Easy to overdo it, though.
Calling back to a recent column: not that long ago I acquired a rower for cardio. I added weights to balance out the weird collection of muscles the rower exercises (I never had visible shins before). I had in the past looked askance at the idea that weights could help with cardio but once my heartrate is up the weights do a good job of keeping it there.
One might call this a torture center ;-). May I suggest low intensity cardio JB?
