Weights below are totals, and done in various sets of intermixed reps...
Back extension: 90x67½kg
Leg sled: 603x120kg
Pec deck: 11x30kg, 11x35kg, 10x40kg, 20x45kg, 70x50kg
Chest press:10x30kg, 10x35kg, 10x40kg, 20x45kg, 46x50kg
Leg curl: 100x35kg
Leg extension: 50x35kg
Hip Abduction: 180x40kg
Hip Adduction: 158x40kg
Low Row: 40x50kg
Curls (alternating & twisting): 60x14k, 200x9kg
I have no idea why my legs were "in the mood" for a lot of reps but I'm not about to argue with them.
Thanks to Floydy's advice on curls my arms look pretty good now and I am really enjoying doing the curls on the cable machines.
Sorry Tachyon, I know this was a week ago nearly but I'm just catching up. I have been looking in on you all but with nothing to post myself, it's best just to read and keep up to date with you all tbh
You're going up with those weights in leaps and bounds, Tachyon, some huge reps there and good, solid lifting. You must be feeling the difference with your health as well as gaining some added muscle, which will always keep those bones and ligaments strong.
Doing arm curls is essential. Not only do they build and define muscle but if you have strong arms, you will find lifting and pushing chest and back exercises easier too, therefore you will be able to keep increasing thew weight and reps in future sessions. Make sure you get plenty of rest after an arms session though as the muscles are much smaller compared to those in the legs, chest etc and you could risk 'over-training' i.e. cause pain, especially in the upper forearm area. Do you use the 'E-Z' bar much, as that is fantastic for bicep growth and tone? One of my favourite exercises, it's just as good loaded with light weights as it is going heavy for 3-5 reps taking it slowly. best if use the seated preacher bench for this though as it gives the lower back some support
Anyway folks, you all look like you're doing well in here with regular running outings and finding the time to do this when you can, which is good.
Swimmy, hope you're going on okay healthwise. I know it's hard but even if you can manage a walk now and again it's good for the circulation. Those physio exercises will get you back to some mobility too. Keep at it bud
Hi Katerina, nice to see a newbie in here
Myself, I'm still unable to do anything in the way of exercise. My hernia is out like a golf ball and a few short walks is all I can manage. But I'm sued to it now and staying positive. As soon as the operation is done (and they are now chasing that up apparently), I will then see how things are during my recovery time, get back to work, then look at devising a new training routine. And that will definitely involve getting outdoors and running a bit.
Take care all
