Breezy’s first Strength and Conditioning Session

Breezy’s first big day in Strength and Conditioning Therapy

So a few weeks ago, my wife had injured her back while working. After 3 weeks of light physical therapy and pain medication her doctor recommended some more aggressive Strength and Conditioning therapy to get her back to 100%. Well she went in today for what may have been one of the hardest workouts of her life. However, she made a few mistakes today before she ever even stepped into the clinic to start her Strength and Conditioning today.

For one, she skipped breakfast… Her strength and conditioning session started pretty early this morning, so she was up before I was out of bed today. We had purchased some “meal replacement” drinks, and last night I advised her to drink half before her workout, and half after… Well this morning, she brought the drink with her, she didn’t drink it. She went into her strength and conditioning session with only some vitamins and a (name deleted) Energy Drink.

I love my wife, and I feel terrible for what happened next. Now she recommended that I share this information on my blog so we can document her progress publicly. But today’s happenings were definitely a learning experience that she will not repeat…

For one, you always need to eat something before an intense workout. Food is your body’s fuel, just like gas fuels a car. Except when cars run out of gas, the car doesn’t eat itself to keep running. Your body does. Having nothing in her stomach except vitamins and an energy shot, Breezy soon found her workout ending early. I’ll spare the details, but I’ll just add that she had to discontinue her strength and conditioning session immediately.

Well, like I said, it was a learning experience that she had to discontinue immediately. Well, she took her meal in a bottle right after she finished her workout. I just hope that she didn’t overdo her system. Once she came home today, we discussed a little about how she should eat before and after her PT strength and conditioning. In the mean time, here’s my recommended pre and post workout drink.
