Thursday - Plateaus

Happy Thursday everyone!!!

Ok, so one very loyal follower is pushing my buttons again!! Just joking, healthy debate is fun! But anyway, dear Kelly has kindly pointed me at one stair stepping machine that actually DOES mimic a real stairwell, and I have to concede that YES, this particular machine comes about as close as you can get to a REAL stairwell. I would even go so far as to say this machine is probably HARDER than a real stairwell, mostly because you'll never get to the top if you don't want to, the ROM is exactly the same as a real stairwell, and if you set the speed high enough you have to keep going at that speed or be swept away.. on a real stairwell you can slow down any darn time you want to (aka: cheat!). Just don't be hanging on to those side bars or front part and I'm a fan of this one! Good on ya, girl!

However, further to my comment about how some machines let you rest too much of your body and do alot of the balancing for you, here's another pic of me we took during my photo session; this one is on a stationary bike. I mean, c'mon, there's even a place to rest your forearms so you can 'relax' upper body while you work your legs. Geez. Dumb. Just plain dumb.

Anyhoo, here I go yakking on about my current program again, as well as a few more tidbits about getting off plateaus! Enjoy!
