A student recently asked me if I worked out. His reasoning was that I looked pretty built. I was taken aback because I don’t think of myself as having a particularly gym looking physique. When I look at myself in photos. I see overweight and “fat”.

Tonight during a class I faced the mirror. Something I almost never do. It wasn’t really deliberate but as I began a routine of squats to “Sally” I noticed he was right. I really do have quite muscular shoulders.

Maybe I should take up power lifting.

  1. I did some power lifting a few years back, well before children. It was a great feeling after each session to know that I was picking up, lifting & pulling heavier weights each session. I really would like to get back into it sooner rather than later.

    The program I followed was Stronglifts 5×5.

  2. Even doing body weight exercises can have a profound sculpting and power generating effect. You have a lovely shoulder to waist ratio that would only be augmented by tone. Gilding the Lilly isn’t always a bad thing.
