Work it out

I had my first workout with a student trainer as part of a program at the university, and boy are my arms tired.  Rather, make that almost every fiber in me.

I know that I need to get stronger, particularly in the shoulders and lower back, so that's what we're working on.  It's not about getting ripped but getting in shape and feeling better.  I still have some issues lingering from the car accident last year that are related to being weaker in the upper back.  This seems like as good of a way as any of fixing them. 

I think it's fair to say that on day one he pushed me to my limit, or at least what that point was today.  Talk about having little left in the tank.  My arms were so tired that I didn't feel like I could carry much of anything after we were done.  And I was starving. 

I've done little to no work on my own with weights, so I imagine results should come quickly if I push my way through the workouts.  I'm sure these early sessions are going to leave me drained and likely sore the following day.  It'll be worth it, but I can't say I expected to be so thoroughly tired after this first one.
