So i DO have muscles....... not sure i want them

yeah, the longer today goes.......... the more my body hurts me, I haven't blogged about the work out so maybe I should start there. I met Johnny up at his gym before it opened... he had me ride the recumbent bike for just 5 minutes and then he took me into this room with 2 (10lb.) weights and he says that he is going to give me 3 core exercises that will work out every muscle group in the body, he said i have the benefit of the extra body weight to use as my resistance so to speak. And this is ALL that i needed to do. So he shows me 3 moves, i do Squats 2 sets of 8, standing push ups at 2 sets of 8, and 2 bend over rows with the weights at 2 sets of 6. the first time through he was there to critique my form and the tempo that i moved. And then he had me repeat, he said after the sets of 3 he'd like me to go back on the bike for 10 minutes and do the 3 sets again. I went through the sets one more time, and he had me stop. He said he knew i was tired before i knew i was tired.... i am thinking hey this is nothing, i don't even feel it .....well, not much. He had me go cool off on the bike again for 5 minutes... i still feel really good, i say goodbye see you next week... and hop up the steps out the door not feeling anything..... 1 hour later, i am home getting ready for work, and i notice not soreness but weakness...... my muscles feel like they've been used all day long....... 24 hours later and i can feel every muscle... my biceps, and triceps, and quadriceps's, my deltoids, my stomach muscles, my calves...
........ need i say more. they are really sore, and I can't even use ibuprofen because of my stomach. Now i must be honest, and to no surprise to my friends that tease me....... i tried to argue with John that i needed more exercises for my arms, my biceps, well John, how about my triceps...... John i didn't do my abdominal exercises.... he tells me abdominal exercises are so over rated. if you do core exercises, you are working your abdominal muscles the entire time.... i am supposed to trust him for 8 weeks....... 8 WEEKs!!!! So before i could call him today, he called me today..... and said.......... with a laugh, tell me that i didn't work ALL of your muscles again! the smart A** new exactly how i was feeling and where i was feeling it. i was sorta upset he only worked me out about 15-20 minutes.. But in his experience and wisdom, he knew that even the little i did would push my body to the limits... Maybe the boy does know what he is doing. just maybe

well i am going to get into my Whirlpool tub, open the window to let the cold air in..... use Salts and relax...... and then i plan on using George on every muscle in my body.
