Conditioning. There’s more to it than getting your body into good condition. You know the story of Pavlov and how he taught his dogs to salivate at the ringing of a bell? Well, I’ve “conditioned” my body to the workouts already. It’s simple. Today I put on my workout clothes, which, by the way, were shorter pants and shirt sleeves than I had been wearing, and within seconds I was actually sweating. Yes, my body just starts sweating now when I put on my exercise clothes.
Too bad it doesn’t burn the calories for me too.
Oh, and it was a precursor to what was to come. By the time I got done on the treadmill today, my entire head, except for the hair on the very very very top thin layer at the top of my crown, was SOAKED in sweat. Revolting.
Shoulders and legs got it today. I couldn’t remember where one of the machines for legs were so I didn’t get the same jelly legs. However, now I know what I need. Squats. There was no machine, we did squats. So, this evening when I get some oomph again, I’ll do those blasted 45 squats.
I don’t have to want to.
