Yesterday while reading Lifting My Spirits FB page I was greatly inspired by her recent workout video posts. She has allowed folks access into her workouts via video and I just thought that was the greatest thing. When you are doing this fitness thing for good, as in like brushing your teeth, there are always times you can use a little motivation. I’m nowhere near as good as she is with this whole video thing, but today, I thought I’d try it. I have a lot to learn about camera placement etc., and practice will remedy that. And again a shout out to Lifting My Spirits for being such a great mentor and example for all of us.
When I looked at this video I thought to myself “man you’re getting old” and then the lifter in me said “but you’re still going and will continue to do so”.
Before you get all stirred up about my form, please keep in mind this was a short workout that began at 4:45am. I didn’t have a lot of time to warm up and it shows. There are also flaws in my technique and there is nothing better than a video to show you exactly what you need to work on to improve technique. So there it is. For the sake of time, I’ve edited out the rest periods for the most part.
A shout out to my friend Roxanne Perkins for helping tutor me on the art of video editing.
