I blogged a few days ago about bench dips and how I finally managed to do the harder version. I found it very hard on my arms so I was really chuffed to finally crack it. Then at my exercise class last night, teacher looks at me exercising arms with my usual level of resistance bands - saying "that's too easy" I get handed a set of harder ones ! No way could I have used them a few weeks ago.
So to anyone starting out with S&F, it may take a few weeks to show results but if you do the exercises regularly it does make a difference. I've noticed it in my day to day life, carrying heavy shopping etc is just so much easier now. Thanks NHS for these podcasts!
