So I was working out at the gym with a friend last week. I was working on the ‘wood chopper’ and got a little lax while ‘chatting’ with my friend.
There was a sweet-faced, Indian lady, perhaps in her late 50’s or early 60’s (oooh… I hate guessing ages) working out just behind me.
I got tapped on the back, and this lovely lady just said, ‘would you mind if I said something?’, and I just knew…. my elbows were bent and they were meant to be straight through the entire action of pulling the resistance handle across. I looked at her sheepishly and said, ‘it’s my elbows right?’. She smiled and nodded and carried on to watch how I did it again and then corrected my posture and asked me, ‘did you feel the difference?’
I have to admit at being very impressed with this lady. I have observed her regularly at the gym, sometimes with a personal trainer, sometimes on her own fitness regime.
Another role model, another standard set.
Aunty at the gym… you rock!
