1 Step Forward - 2 Steps Back

Today I arrived at my gym to find that they had replaced all of the ancient strength training equipment in the women's only section with new equipment. I was excited, new equipment! So I jumped on the elliptical to complete the cardio portion of my workout and then headed over to the new strength equipment. I was excited, until I sat down at the first machine and realized I had no idea how to use it. *sigh* So, I proceeded to walk from machine to machine reading the instructions and testing out the weight/seat/handles/etc. It will probably take me about 3 weeks to get settle in properly. Oh, and now my arms hurt. Apparently 50lbs on the old machines does not equal 50lbs on these. But hey, new equipment! *grumble*

The weights on the old equipment were probably just worn out. Happens all the time with weights...that is why I never buy used dumb-bells.
