Can hamstrings get shorter?
Finally…Courtney is starting to show some real definition and muscle tone in those arms of his! I’m approaching my 3rd week with BBP…and I’m feeling pretty amazing. Amazing meaning–my hamstrings feel 5 inches shorter today, my biceps and triceps hurt to look at, I’ve given up brushing my hair because I can’t lift my arms over my head, and my teeth hurt. Every workout I’m certain I’m dying on the inside…and then it’s over, and I walk out on to 17th street feeling like a badass. I’ll call it a strut rather than a limp…I’m certain it’s a limp due to the amount of lunges and squats I’ve done in the past 2 weeks…but no one needs to know that. I feel so confident right now–my shorts are shorter and my smile is bigger. There is nothing better than feeling good in your skin! People are noticing my arms….that has NEVER happened before. I’ve blamed genetics for my lack of muscle tone in certain areas for 20 years…my parents are skinny people–we just don’t have the makeup to build a ton of muscle. Ummmm….false. I just wasn’t working these muscles like I should. Ok…I wasn’t working these muscles at all. I feel like I’m starting to see the light…starting to see changes…starting to really dig this body I’m living in…and starting to understand how much work it takes to look and feel great. Kudos Jen and Courtney….teaching an ol’ dog new tricks isn’t easy, but you’re doin’ it, doin it, and doin it well
