I work out with a trainer and I am always amazed when I am able to go beyond where I thought I had reached my limit. My trainer says I am not at my limit at all; I am simply in a muscle confusion phase and my body is learning new cell and muscle memory. Even though I often look at him like he is trying to trick me, I later find out that he is exactly right. The movement or activity that once confounded and exhausted me soon becomes so easy and like I have been doing it for so long. It becomes a part of me so to speak. I am thrilled because my body is now doing things it seemingly could not do before. My boredom, my plateau and my rut is broken and I am renewed!
