Planks

Planks seem to get a bad rap. Thick as two planks, walk the plank, DO the plank. Planks and triceps dips, ...my two personal "cannot dos". Actually, plank can lah, but until shaking like a drug addict going cold turkey. Triceps dips, hmmmph.

Went for Horny's pump class, since there was no in-laws dinner, and I didnt have to occupy myself until late evening. The composition of the class is more or less the same ppl in YI's Monday class, ie, the 4.45 pumpers. Without Lionheart in the class, everyone, including "Newman", seems to take a breather. Horny mumbled something about choosing not so hard tracks, coz she has 6 pumps in the week, but yeah, right, I bet if Lionheart was there.... !!!! Which reminds me, Lionheart, we want a written account of your birthday pump. (as in Body Pump)

Speaking of which, I read in the papers that those people who used to do aerobics in the 80s and 90s, ala Jane Fonda, (FDI, nudge nudge wink wink), Olivia Newton John, (I didnt know she did aerobics....to what song ah? Physical), etc, are now paying the price, with decayed hips, osteoperosis, etc, etc etc and so forth. How scary.

Oh, KP (namely Killer Pump class) was good. Saw some MJH fellas at the class. Newman was there and so was the fella who is always dressed in black for YI's 4.45pm class (dunno his name woh) and his wifey. Annie (one of the regulars in FSI's Wed BS class) was also there. Malek, Susan, Terrence, yhsmom and you, FBB, were the ones sorely missed. Horny introduced discreetly, dat she and Richelle were doing the class for someone's birthday and dat someone was there in the studio somewhere. Tracks were lovely and tuff...come to think of it, each of the tracks were consistently tuff, particularly the biceps and the lunges. Horny did the first 5 tracks and Richelle did the remaining tracks. Horny was perked up as usual but poor Richelle really looked worst for wear. She was not her usual bubbly self. Had a terrible day, dats wat I was told. And Horny was so taken in by a lady doing her kickbacks wrongly that in her haste to correct her moves, she forgot to tell the members to change hands. And for that...push ups for Horny, which she graciously carried out...so sweet of her. It was obvious that the tracks were tuff enuff, bcoz, after dat, when I proceeded to do Richelle's BS class, I developed a cramp in my thighs after the first 6 tracks. Aiyo...legs like jelly oridi. After BS, the three of us (nemaly, Richelle, Horny and myself) had a hush hush cake cutting "ceremony". Thank you sooo much, Horny and Richelle for all this. Btw, Richelle asked me "Where is Fatboy ah?"...

FB: You don't remember ONJ's music video for Physical meh? she was all togged up in aerobics gear complete with headband and leg warmers!

I am a BIG fan of Jane Fonda and she's THE reason why I got into aerobics in the first place!

The woman is just amazing! Besides being an actress, fitness pioneer and sometime Mrs Ted Turner, she also a political activist!

In the early 80s, I had the famous aerobics book (with Jane in stripy leotard, both legs up in the air)as well as various video tapes (Step, Hi-Low, Butt Burner etc) and exercise audio tapes which I even took with me when I went to study in England! Later on I bought her pregnancy aerobics book and video tape as well!

sunshine...pay price no beauty still how, like moi?

lionheart, aisay, really missed your birthday pump lar...sounded fun. wonder what ailed richelle?

yhsmom, yar, i think my mother is doing jane fonda till today.

sc, i think those affected are those who really did it very often, i guess our modern day equivalents being the INSTRUCTORS, muahahahaha..... our dear FCI might be wheel chair bound by the time he's 40. he's already looking charn and he's nowhere near 30.
say, you're an instructor too no?
hence, i dun try anything funny like flying evasive side kicks. one wrong land, and can imagine, that cracking sound of a broken knee cap....kreeeyakkkkkkk.....i just have to live with the taunts of not doing it.

I retired a looooong time ago cos I got a life.Hehehe. But I think many people complaining of knee injuries already, FCI will need a wheelchair for 30 birthday, which isn't that far away lar. Another fler in trouble is probably shades, who also has gone from buff to anorexic.

yalar, shades, aiyo, i oso said same thing, he looks anorexic. any thinner he'll really look like gollum...

SC...Hmmm...BA definitely will charn you outright. If you are not charn in a few years time, your knees will definitely bonk out, and you will be "pai keok loh".

FBB...now dat you mentioned the "charn-ness" of instructors, I notice there are quite a few of dem around...really looks as if dey need an overhaul of some sort.

Quickest but not necessarily the easiest way to lose weight...become an instructor. Anyone wishing to take movie roles like the machinist, i.e appear skinny and malnourisehed should be instructors first, guaranteed results in 1 month.

Happy chinese new year everyone!

FB, i am sure there is a difference in you physically compared to your peers who lead a more sedentary lifestyle.

In any case we can always console ourselves that we possess inner beauty, ie, a strong heart, strong muscles and strong bones!
