If any of you have ever suffered from a severe injury, you can relate to my plight. After many years and countless training sessions I substained an injury the irony being it was not training related (I am a hardcore Mountain Biker and had a mishap where I landed on my Head hence The Nick Name Lip Stand. my friends tell me that the jury still out if there was ever anything there to injure.) So after I happened to see my self-naked in the mirror the other day (man that was scary)and being totaly disgusted. I decided to go see my friendly neighbourhood Witch Doctor and convince him that I was fit enough to return to the the world of pumping Iron.
The first problem is finding a Gym in this my New city of residence, (since when did Gyms become Clubs?)where I will feel comfortable.
It appears that the same people who train USED CAR SALESMEN train these so Called Membership Consultants, they can’t seem to get it through their heas
ds I want to try out their Club before I make a commitment to join their establishment.
So I finnally decided to try A “club” near my home, nice clean friendly place that’s family oriented that has alot to offer everyone, but i do wish they would pick different traing music who wants to train to Barney’s song "I love You,You love Me?)
After much thought I decided the first body part I should train after my long absence should be my Chest, (God what was I thinking???)So i find my sself a flat bench in a queit little corner and tdecide to do some Dumb Bell presses,
for a guy who used to do 110’s for 12 reps this should be fairly easy , Wrong, doing 60’s for 6 reps took everything I could muster. I did no better on the incline bench though I did out lift the 9o year old man beside me by 5 lbs, Thank Christ i didn’t attempt the decline bench or they might of had to call in the Paramedics.
Well to say the least my first day back to a training regime was verrrrry interesting.
I would be truly indebeted to any of you who can offer any suggestions on how to approach my comeback.
