Re: Fitness Checkin

Hey fitness chickens!

Well I skipped the salsa on Wednesday - me bad.

I'm back on the wagon now though:
Thurs: pilates
Fri: 40 min on elliptical
Today: Upper body weights + lower body with the torture device known as the magic circle.

I'm bummed because I was supposed to go XC skiing today but it's too dang cold!

Perhaps I'll throw that salsa dvd in tomorrow.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Yesterday I went a bit overboard in the gym, I was there for a few hours, I had a lot of energy and stuff to work out, plus I was having a good time. It was the close of my 2nd week on my 14 week program that I planned out for myself, and I was pretty damn happy with myself.

So, I tested my limits with weight on a few exercises, to see not only I was ready to increase the weight or if I just wasn't working with enough to begin with.

All said, a very good day at the gym yesterday, but a bit sore today.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I know I'm 2 weeks into my program, but I haven't started working on my legs yet besides the running on the treadmill.

I'm kinda nervous about it so I've been putting it off for a while, I broke my back in 5 places when I was 15 and even though it's been 12 years, I'm still kinda weary about it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I did legs for the first time in over three months last Friday and I am still paying for it. Squats: 3 sets of 8, Leg Extensions: 3 sets of 8, walking lunges: 3 sets of 8, and standing calf raises: 3 sets of 8.

Note to self: Don't ever take 3 months off from doing legs again.

Kicked into high gear. Did a set of bench presses 315x12, 365x8 during a workout and it was easy.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Lots of drunk happened the last week for me, so I'm gonna call that a set back.

Oh well, I had my fun, and it was totally worth it. Now back to grindstone...

Re: Fitness Checkin

joined a gym a couple weeks ago . . . it's great because I go past the place on my way home from work, so under absolutely no circumstances can I use the excuse "too out of the way"/"don't want to drive that far" etc

been doing treadmill . . . nothing too exciting.
avg about 2.7 mph started at 15 minutes and then 20, 25 and did 30 minutes yesterday and even managed a 4mph jog for about a minute towards the end

I'm about 275 at the moment, and for years and years I've been pretty sedentary, so it's taking my muscles and tendons a while to get used to it

Wah, why don't you cry about it?


I really really really need to start putting more effort into my legs. I am getting top-heavy.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I started a new routine, got bored of it, played around with it and fel sufficiently worn out after every session. Good stuff. Unfortunatly my back is still killing me and my knees are suffering a 404 error. Bad stuff.

I need to get weighed but according to a collegue (and CWF Champion in the US) I'm looking better than I have in years after shedding around 30lbs. Dropping the weight has made me quicker and more agile too, which is definatly a bonus

I'll be back in some manly trunks soon enough.
