New Year’s Resolutions
This year, I decided not to have any New Year’s resolutions because I never stick with them and end up feeling depressed on New Year’s Eve when I think of all of the unused potential the year had had. So, instead of allowing myself to feel sorry for myself, this year, I decided to actually do something, rather than resolve to do it. Therefore, I have taken up wall climbing, a feat I have enjoyed in other years but haven’t made the time to stick to it. In my January efforts, I have only been wall climbing once (however, I did go on Dec. 30th as well). I’m pumped and have stuck to a very non-rigorous workout routine when I’m not wall climbing. So, my question for all of you is, how can you build up arm strength – without looking like a steroid-pumping wrestler? I have some restrictions. While pulling my weight in wall climbing isn’t bad, my ability to do push-ups is so so. This is because I interviewed a guy at a boxing club. The man was acting in an independent horror flick, which was being filmed at the club. There was a punching bag on the set and I tested it out. Having only thrown Karate punches that my dad taught me, I did not know how to properly hit a punching bag without slightly injuring my wrist. In any case, if you have any suggestions, let me know.
