I went to this class called "RPM" today. It was really hard work, but not as hard as the "bodypump" classes. I spoke with an aquaintance at the gym about the emotional aftermath of seeing post menopause women lifting more weights than a young man in his prime. He suggested the best way to deal with it is to lower my expectations and psychologicaly diminish these old ladies. Its not that they are lifting more weight; its that they aren't lifting that much more. I found his strategy amusing as he works at Golds Gym and is in wicked shape himself. After working my ass off I decided eating anything but a tiny bite of low fat cottage cheese and an apple would be counter productive. So I'm off to starve myself for the rest of the day, cheers! Also I heard vitamin C is good for eating after excersice so help prevent muscle aches and soreness, can anyone verify?
