Every once in awhile, I realize just how far I’ve come with AbsoluteFIT.
The other day, in a Strength and Endurance session, Marie demonstrated some hellish move she appears to have made up herself: a full pushup, in which your feet are on those Glider discs; the legs slide outward on the Gliders as you drop into the pushup, and slide back in to the starting position on the upward part. Basically, it’s some real Spider-Man stuff right there. A pushup, which is HARD ENOUGH THANK YOU, but also with extreme core control and LEGS INVOLVED.
We all stood around and did that dubious-laughter thing, like ain’t no way we’re gonna be able to do that, lady! You’re dreaming!
But — when it was my turn on that circuit — I did it. And not just once, either — I got four or five good reps completed before I had to give up the leg part and just do pushups for the rest of the 50 seconds. Second time through, I did it again — six of them this time. And while I was doing it, utterly focused (which I had to be — it was tough to coordinate!), the word “strong” came into my head. I absolutely could not have done even one rep of this move five months ago. “Strong,” said my unhinged brain — and it was right.
