Slow and steady wins the race. I am once again making certain changes in my resistance training routine. For one, I am slowing down my individual reps to a 1 to 2 second work and then a 2 – 3 second release. In other words, if I am doing a curl for example I am lifting the weight strong until completion and then slowly letting it do back to the starting point. And secondly, I am only leaving 1 minute between sets. So far, I can really feel the difference in my workout. I am working a particular muscle group to complete exhaustion.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to talk with a fellow employee who has been suffering from gout. From everything I have read about gout, other than not drinking alcohol, getting healthy and in good shape really helps out. I cannot tell you all of the science behind it, but I know that with any ailment we suffer from, getting healthy is the key to setting us on the road to recovery. The funny thing is that he told me that I sound like a motivational coach and did take my suggestions to heart. I am always careful not to preach to others about my successes in reversing Type II Diabetes and getting healthy, but when I see someone is is obviously suffering I just have to say something.
