Hi !

I do some exercise at home with some barbells

and a curlbar,I have done Bodybuilding prior to Aikido,so I have a variety of exercises.

I'm very aware of how I stress the muscles

in order not to become tense and insensitive.

Keeping my back strong is kind of necessary

having a back problem and after advancing to

2.kyu I want to be able to take kind ukemi

that will be coming my way.

Aikido requires a special sensitivity that

heavy weightlifting will be counterproductive to ,so it's a delicate matter.

yours - Chr.B.
