I should really blame fuck_m3_up as it was her idea.
I have recently joined Holmes Place in Wood Green after a 3 week break from the gym. When I started on their running machines, I was at first horrified at how out of shape I was after only three weeks. I then realised that the bastard treadmill was showing the speed and distance in imperial measurements rather than the far better metric measurements. No wonder I was having trouble running 13kph for a sustained period. It was 13mph. And trying to run 5km is easier than 5 miles.
Oh well, I'm also almost back to being able to lift the same weight before my unscheduled break, and this is good. Once I have reached my targets then I will concentrate on endurance and stamina.
I guess this might be mostly of interest to fuzball and fuck_m3_up but here are my immediate targets:
- Shoulder, Lateral raises (Sideways and forwards): 15kg
- Shoulder raise, Machine 50kg
- Reverse Butterfly, 15kg
- Lateral Pull-Up: 50kg
- Chest Incline, Machine: 100kg
- Chest Standard, Machine 100kg
- Benchpress: 100kg
- Pectoral Machine: 100kg
- Sitting Flyes: 25kg
- Back Pulldown, Machine: 100kg
- Preacher Curls: 25kg
- Hammercurls: 25kg
- Normal Curls: 25kg
- Triceps: 25kg
These are obviously just intermediate goals. Once I have achieved these (and I'm close), then I will concentrate more on endurance, stamina and cardio excercises.
At the moment I'm overtraining and I know it, but I'm making up for it by taking far too many vitamins, minerals, protein drinks (Mmmm, chocolate taste (: ) All in all it's good, and I'm slowly coming to the realisation that I am actually quite big in this country :->
