So this photo was taken just before open heart surgery 3 years ago. This photo represents two years of dedication to diet and exercise. My wife and I were in the best shape of our lives, we were both soft and over weight before and both had difficulty just jogging around the block before we took health seriously. .
I thought that after open heart surgery my fitness would be even better, I thought I would be able to bulk up better, I thought I would be able to run faster than ever before, and I thought I wouldn’t be so tired all the time. Truth be told this was not the case. For these three years I have struggled to maintain even a moderate level of fitness, I start to feel okay and hit it hard at the gym but am soon knocked back with pericarditis or fatigue. .
Though the physical struggle has been rough, the mental toll that OHS has on me has been the hardest to bear. .
I am so grateful for a companion that will share with me my passions when I feel good and lift me up when I don’t feel I will make it mentally!
Sissy Squats humble you.
Sissy and thick Saturday. ~
Set your heels shoulder-width apart on the edge of the block- or if your gym doesn’t have a block- use a (leg extension machine shown here), with your toes on the floor and pointed straight ahead. ~
Lean back until your body forms a straight line from neck to knees. Your knees will be bent slightly in the starting position. ~
Lower your body backward as your knees bend. Descend as far as you can without losing your balance, then push back up to the starting position.
There's no need to straighten your knees at the top. Just do your reps smoothly within the best range of motion you can manage without losing the alignment of your torso and thighs.
You should feel a deep burn in your quadriceps after a few reps, but no pain in your knees.
