The boys (actually Taylor in particular) wasn't thrilled about the extra 45 minutes we'd be there, but he would have to survive and deal with it.
I am your typical group exercise addict and don't usually venture out to the machines unless I have some extra time on my hands. The gym I go to has a huge assortment of machines and equipment. Some of which I was familiar with and others not so much. But really how hard could it be? There were signs posted on each piece of equipment with a picture of what you should be doing. And I've got some experience, so I thought.
I sat down at this one machine that works your back and abs. It resembled the one in this picture. At my old gym we had a similar one where you sat with the bar across your chest and crunched down. Apparently, this was not the same machine. How do I know that? Because when I sat down and tried to push the bar down it wasn't moving. I adjusted the weight stack and tried again. Nothing. So, I decided to look at the picture and wouldn't you know, I was sitting the wrong way. The bar was supposed to be behind my back (not chest) and I was supposed to be pushing back against it not forward. No wonder it felt strange. I was embarrassed because this particular machine sits about 10 feet away from the personal training desk where 6 trainers were standing around. I am sure they noticed my lack of equipment knowledge not to mention my unique way to use the workout machines.
I think I'll retreat back to what I know. There aren't many ways to mishandle a step.
