My friend and I started lifting weights a year ago. Previous to that I had done no regular exercise, other than running. Results wise I’ve seen some improvement, but the more important thing is the diligence we’ve applied to our workouts. We’ve missed days, our schedule has been irregular, and we’ve been testing new methods constantly; but the point is we are establishing a habit.
I don’t like our workouts. Even now I don’t enjoy lifting weights, the entire process feels like one cruel punishment. But afterward I always feel better and am glad that I did the workout. Someone told me that the secret to a successful life is working out, here’s to hoping that’s true.
