Rock Climbing

May 4th, 2009

So I think it important to also blog about what rock climbing has done for my body.  I have been doing it once to two times a week since early March.  I don’t do any weight training along with my workouts, and rock climbing has given my a pilates sinewy shape.  I love it!  It has changed the way I swing in softball, the way I run, and I don’t have stretch marks anymore.  I feel it in my whole body after a workout.  The best part of rock climbing is that you can always push yourself further, unlike a lot of gym machines.  There have been many machines where I spend an hour and then say to myself, “Now what?”

    Sounds like an excellent way to get in exercise. I would love to try it myself. Kudos to you!

    Delphi,

    There is nothing like it. I am not exaggerating. There is one downside, and I cannot tell whether it’s because my muscles are stressed from climbing or this swine flu thing is doing a number on my body, but I can’t relax my upper body. Like my neck, shoulders, and chest. They are always tense. I am going to see a doctor if it continues into Thursday. It’s been going on for about five days. I think I might have just overdone it. I should be using my legs more when I go anyway. Thanks for the kudos, though! I think you should try it yourself. I will post pics of the next time I go with my sister-in-law or brother.
