Gym Cardio TheatreImage via Wikipedia

Yesterday i’ve done quite a bit of cardio and core exercise.

This was my programme

  • 16min running/interval maxed at 11km/h
  • 10min rowing (finally done it, before i could only do around 6min)
  • 3 sets of crunches
  • 3 sets of twisted situps
  • 3 sets of leg raises
  • 7min (1mile run)
  • stretches

Side note

my co-workers at my job found that i was on a strict diet. It sort of went a bit awkward when i explained what I was doing. As they eat a lot, and I explained i was eating 6 meals a day and it got into a little argument. and i was pissed  off when they said i was eating too much or in a weird diet. But i explained. and when i said i tried to keep off sugar and chocolate (which i meant confectionary, sweets) i just got a bit defensive about it, when one of them said you had sugar in your tea, well yeah i do, but its not confectionery or chocolate they stuff  in through the day.

What more they could all use a little of physical activity, they drink, eat a lot. And one of them goes to the gym but eats a lot of food at work. Common, if you were going to go to the gym to get fit and lose some, why not stay away from the fatty foods. She might aswell not go and as she is wasting her money on the gym membership if she is eating that way afterwards.

This is because I am not used to talk about my physical fitness to people and what more what I eat and how eat.

Common that is not there problem, but it ended me speaking out a bit too much as i didn’t want them to get involve in what i do.

Knowing when you are doing too much weight

A lot of people seems to be pushing themselves a bit too much and hurt themselves when doing weights. From reading a few article and some past experience a quick way of knowing when you are doing too much weights is understanding your body.

For example you have to see the responce of your body when lifting the weights around your 5th time, if you feel that your are making faces or your body or muscle is shaking drop down a few weight and just increase your rep.

Example:

if you are doing some triceps lifts starting at 25kg, your first 5 lift will seem easy but when you reach the 6th or 7th lift you seem that you are struggling to push it all the way up. You would normally feel a shake on your arm. Drop it down and drop a block of weight down to 21kg and do another 1-2 sets of 8 or 12 depending on what you had planned. I normally plan for 3 sets of  12 but if i feel I can’t do the new weights I go for 3 sets of 12 on a lower weight and 2 more sets of 8. This is good if you want to increase your endurance. 

I’m B

I am B, I am a student on a part-time degree with a wonderful job.

I am starting this blog so that i have somewhere where i can express myself fully without anyone knowing who i really am.

I don’t want to give away to much about myself so that people don’t get offended when i talk about them.
