I had never worked out on a power plate until TODAY!
I heard about them before because Chris would stretch on one at BYU.
But here at the local gym they have power plate classes.
I thought I would give it a whirl so I signed up for one.
I am always a little nerves going to a new class not knowing the technique or routine the first time I attend I always feel like a compete moron while I make a fool out of myself trying to get into the rythm. But going to a class for the first time here I get ULTRA nervous because if they dont speak English than it's a whole new kind of moronic feeling :)
I went to my class thinking I would just get a plate near the rear of the room and go at my own pace...to my surprise I was the ONLY ONE that showed up for the class.
LOL so it was just me and the instructor Tomas.
I had to talk myself into staying. I would have left but Tomas already knew I had arrived.
He spoke little english but enough. Normally instructors work out with you but he just showed me once than come and stood by me and watched...all the while blowing in my face to remind me to keep breathing :)...wonderful.
It was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life I had 4 sets of everything at 90 seconds each...are you kidding me?!?
Dips, squats, bicep curls, a lot of stomach workouts...and more squats. Not to metion this guy would a tough cookie and definitely wasn't going easy on me.
I didn't think I would make it to the car my legs were all wobbly. I wouldn't even lift my arms to put my coat on. I suppose it's safe to say that the power plate workout is extremly effective. The level of difficulty was very extreme.
Lets just say I will be doing it again but this time with a few more participants.
Dekuji Tomas je to dobre!
