Day 7 of 120 & Going Shoeless

Today is Day 7 of 120. That means only 113 days to go. At the end of week 1 I really do not feel any different at all, honestly there was no expectation to.  Well there is soreness and exhaustion but should we really count that? Hoping my energy level goes up next week. Today is a rest day but more than likely I will end up in the Basement of Doom and do a little something that is low impact and that will help stretch and lengthen the muscles. Flexibility and I do not belong in the same sentence as of now.

After doing some reading and research working out barefooted sounds like something to try.  Many people swear by their shoes but I see many points of going shoeless. Granted anything outdoors I would always wear shoes. Being barefooted outdoors freaks me out. On the beach in the sand is the only place you will find me outside without shoes on.  Yoga is already done barefoot or in a pair of yoga socks so I have that down already.

Athletic shoes can change your center of gravity thus making your weight shift forward. Your body will compensate and in turn exaggerate your lumbar curve and overextend the back. I really think this would make lifting a bit more comfortable. Especially on days where my Fibromyalgia is acting like a jerk.  it is said that barefoot exercise helps strengthen the feet, improve balance, muscle alignment, reduce foot and ankle pain as well as reduce the chance of injury.

I don’t feel like there is any harm in trying. If I don’t like it I can always put my shoes on. Simple as that.


If Arnold did it can it really be that bad of a thing to try???

Working out without shoes is far from a new concept and may not appeal to everyone. By no means am I a doctor and all around orthopedic know it all. So you should do your research and talk to a doctor before starting a workout.
