Yes that’s right…i have an enemy.
It’s name?? Any guesses? It’s that thing we all love to hate, it usually lurkes in the cardio section of most gyms. It’s loud and it’s threatening. It’s too big to beat up and it’s too valuable to not use.
Yes…i’m describing the dreaded STEP MILL!!!
Man O’ Man is this going to suck..lol. It’s been 15 weeks of contest prep for me and finally..my coach has decided that i’m going to start doing cardio. If you dont know me yet..you have no idea how much i loathe cardio. I’m a meathead through and through. I like to pick things up and put them down and sometimes when i pick them up i make the weight understand whose boss right before i put it down again..LMAO.
I’m no cardio bunny. I dont ever plan on running a marathon and i dont ever plan on doing steady state cardio for fun. That’s just not me. I like my muscle and i like doing things to make my muscles look bigger..SO I LIFT. And i like to lift heavy (Just for fun!!)
I used to run track when i was younger, but i was always the sprinter..i like to go fast..and i like to go hard, doing anything longer than a minute is annoying..HA HA HA!!
So here i am..about to embark on my last 9+ weeks of prep understanding that i’m now going to have to conquer that step mill for 30 min each night. And for those 30 minutes i will have to establish my authority over the machine that helps shape gorgeous legs. I”m determined to not fall this time (yes..i fell off the step mill once..). The step mill gave me one look and i fell off!! And it laughed at me, and i never got back on.
Of course when my coach decided that i was going to do step mill as my cardio he had no idea how terrified of it i am. Of course he still doesn’t know, and it’s because i’m not one to have someone tell me what to do to help myself and argue with them about how i dont like something. He’s the pro..i am not. so i trust him.
And i will not fall..END OF STORY.
But if i do fall..don’t worry..i will give it a kick or two (or push it over) and then i’ll get back on. Because being in the best shape of my life, competing and being a BODY BUILDER is something i desire above most things.
