I reluctantly did a Body Pump class at the gym on Wednesday (thought it was for girls) and I am very sore today!! Anyone else tried these?

Have to play squash at five, hoping to loosen up a bit by then!! :huh:

    good luck with the squash - it'll hurt for 10 minutes but then it'll be fine - but the tomorrow you'll be hurting twice as much!

    So, did you do the pump class to pick up the ladies???...

    I've been cycling with the kids this week. I thought I had enough natural padding on the posterier area,(excuse spelling) but I paid the price for having a cheap saddle the next day!

    A-ha, that is bad news.

    I can take no such advantage of gym colleauges given my circumstances!

    I usually just do weights and some cardio, but this year been doing spinning as well! Some people have said "isn't that just for girls", if so then girls stuff it pretty hardcore!!!

    Before I was pregnant I went to the gym for an hour a day every day, and it may sound strange but I miss it! When the baby comes I won't have the luxury of the gym so I'm gonna start with Davina's workout dvd to lose the baby weight then I'm gonna have to get an exercise bike or something to put in the spare bedroom and I think I'll be on a constant diet!

    Definitely recommend the Printworks as A-Vic says (I was in Pure the other week and it was fantastic even though I was probably the oldest person in there!!) The Comedy Store is also a good night as well!

    A-vic,

    If you get off the train at Deansgate station then turn right, over the road is a row of about 4 pubs (Loaf is one of them). The comedy store is on that row. I've been there a few times and it is a fantastic night.:thumbup1:

    I guess it's just a question of how you employ the pump!!

    I always found the classes more knackering than just working out in the gym, actually I suspect it was overdoing various classes that did for my shoulder. I really found them good for working on your core strength though and I never found any downside to being the only bloke amongst a dozen or so fit women :001_tongue:

    Unfortunately I got stuck at the back with some other bloke, so there were about fifteen of those women in front of us. Was horrible.
