Alwyn Cosgrove is trying to kill me...

I don't know him from Adam, but I promise you that Mr. Cosgrove is indeed out to end my life. Who is Alwyn Cosgrove, you ask? He is one of three authors of The New Rules of Lifting for Women ... he came up with the workouts.

I am only on Stage 1, Workout B-1, but oh my...... see, Stage 1, Workout A-1 was crazy enough. As many squats as I've done, and they hurt like hell this time. In fact, I'm still feeling the effects of these when I went to work out today. The plan is to workout no less than two and no more than three times in a week, so that you take a rest for about 48 hours, then work out again.....

I'm thinking 72 hours rest right now..... because I actually was still sore from Tuesday's workout when I did today's workout.

But I can't wait to see the results. This entire plan is about 6-8 months worth of workouts, getting progressively stronger and better. That is something that I can totally get behind!

If I survive Stage 1......
