She also told me she has seen many serious injuries in women over thirty years old from bodypump classes. She thinks the moves are too fast for our muscles, which do not recover at the same rate as the twenty-somethings' muscles. She recommended I stop doing them. How sad!! But hey, this is what I wanted to know.
So now I make an appointment with the podiatrist and another one with someone at the gym to learn the correct form in doing those leg presses.
Deborah straightened some things out in my neck and back because it had been so long, but she did not think I need to come back, except on an as-needed basis.
I have decided not to push today so I won't be doing my regular exercise before the dance class. I'll just call it good.
