Laughing my way to sexy abs

An SMS conversation between my personal trainer and me:

Sheylara: Quick question. Is laughing during resistance training bad? I mean, like, could people hurt themselves?

Eric Goh: Only if you laugh at your trainer. If both trainer and client laugh, no problem.

Sheylara: What…

Eric Goh: Because if you laugh at your trainer, angry trainer will train you harder.

Sheylara:

Why, oh why, oh why???????????!!!!

Doh.

For the record, Eric eventually gave me the correct answer.

It’s not advisable to laugh during weight training because it makes you stop breathing regularly and raises your blood pressure.

But it’s good to laugh as a workout because laughing works the abs.

Eric has been working my abs a lot because he’s a funny sort of fellow. And he makes me laugh while I’m working on my abs, which makes them cramp up so much that I want to crawl into the locker room and hide in the sauna.

Well, not really.

Laughing is fun and I’m enjoying my workouts despite having a sadistic trainer.

I’m laughing my way to sexy abs.

Doh.
