Week 6 in the Gym

Tuesday 20 March 2012
After being too unwell last week to go to the gym, I’m back, feeling fit and ready to go.

Changed, towel in hand, headphones on and music blasting, so let’s get going.  5km p/h warm-up on the treadmill for 5mins, up the pace and incline to 5.5km p/h and 3.5m for 10mins.

After a quick chat with the management team about my program, I’m on the weights with no changes.  80 bicep curls, 20 tricep pulls and 40 side raises with the weights.

Finished, onto to the rowing machine, up from level 6 to level 7 and another personal record 2,701m in 15mins.  I need another towel this one is soaked but can’t stop.  Who moved the ball?  Found it, I can now do the 20 squats.

Now for another 10mins on the treadmill, 5.5km p/h and 3.5m incline, and finish off on the bike for 7mins.  2.83km, not bad not bad at all!  Home time now and feeling good.

New day so let’s get going.  Got the routine set now; 5mins warm-up on the treadmill followed by 10mins.

Weights now, 80 bicep curls, 20 tricep pulls and 40 side raises.  Rowing machine now for 15mins, no record today but 2 decent 2,669m so no complaints.  Time to bend the knees and stretch the back with 20 squats.

Oh dear, all four treadmills are in use, I’ll go on the bike and finish on the treadmill.  3.1km in 7mins on the bike, that’s the farthest I’ve gone.  Now for the treadmill, 10mins, 5.5km p/h and 3.5m incline.  What happened then, oh no a twinge in the calf, only 5mins done but I’d better stop now I do not want to do any damage.

Gym time and no aches, pains or twinges today so let’s go.  Start on the treadmill with the 5min warm-up now speed up for 10mins.

Weights now, 80 bicep curls, 20 triceps and 40 shoulder raises with the weights.

15mins on the rowing machine now so let’s see how far I go.  2717m, another record, at this rate I’ll be calling the Guinness book of world records.  20 squats then back to the treadmill for 10mins and finish off with 7mins on the bike – 2.94km.

Finished, now for the scales, wow almost 3lbs this week and 12lbs in total.
