Last week my shoulders kept giving out and we realized that all of my stabilizing muscles are either overworked because of bad posture or weak from lack of use. This week, I have never felt my shoulders burn in places I never knew could burn. It was definitely an eye opener for me. Especially when it comes to my posture. I slump over and I kept cheating and trying to slouch forward to use other muscles.
I am so close to being able to finish my core workout without having to shut down because my core gives out and my back tries to compensate. My trainer literally shut me down with 2 weighted crunches to go. I wanted to finish so bad, but I also don’t need to continue taxing my lower back.
With some of the exercises we’ve started to do, I have realized that my balance isn’t what it used to be. I’m hoping that that improves as we go along. I guess when you haven’t skated in a year or so, your ankles tend to slim down.
