Our body can definitely surprise us.
The other day, I was so amazed with the this college girl (she was in school uniform when she arrived at the “gym”). She was lifting barbell. But the one routine I got interested was her lunge with weight overhead.
Something like this:

I was envious. I was thinking that maybe after 6 months, I can already manage to do that.
But surprise. I was given that routine today! Yay! I was surprised I was being able to finish the 3 sets though i think my form was flailing. It feels like going up a steep uphill.
It was empowering that whatever happens, I can become a “kargador” to feed my family.
