I guess even if he doesn't have much experience, he's at least done the course recently so he'll be up with the latest stuff & be enthusiastic! He was quite interested in my running program & took a copy of what I've been doing; was planning on doing a bit of research & coming up with a few new ideas for the next run's training program.
I've never paid for formal PT before, but I did train with a mate while she was doing her course, so was chief guinea pig for 6 months or so for her. Adam was pretty good & I felt just the right amount of pain. Definitely sore 24 hours later, but not so sore that I couldn't walk!!!
I'll be doing a session a week with him til the prepaid runs out. If I'm still diggin' it I might continue on. I can't do pump because of the tennis elbow, so it's good to have someone design a training program that I can work with, plus he makes sure my technique is good & pushes me. I usually avoid lunges at all costs, but I can't escape them now..........
My core, lower back, glutes & upper body are all weak (surprise surprise) so that's what we're working on. The funnest thing I played with was a Bosu ball.
You flip it so the round bit is on the ground & you stand on the flat bit - yes, it wobbles a lot (or should I say I wobbled a lot). Then try it standing on 1 leg! That was most peculiar as each ankle almost reverberated. I had to hold onto the arm Adam offered me for 1 legged. I also managed to do a couple of squats on it. It's harder than it looks & works a lot of muscles at once. Plumbing Boy wants one!
Here's a few pic's from a camping weekend a few weeks ago........
sunset on the way there (had to set up in the dark)
Red wine glass & a beautiful bottle of red. I hear the locals are bloody awesome!!!
Mr Kettle & the campfire.
I went on a 2 hour hike on the Sunday up a ginormous hill plumbing boy rides his bike up; came back via an easier route. Going down steep rocky trails is much harder than going up them!
