Default 5kg's Snippets of a Workout

A new log, pretty obvious

This is still a fullbody routine but since I can't be bothered writing every little detail from A to B and then to C, there will only be snippets of each day's session which means I won't get bored writing the log, hopefully.



At the moment, I'm still getting my back up to par after having an induction last Friday, at the local gym; an induction which had to be gone through in order to be allowed to use the gym. However, because I had an "idiot" trainer take me through the machinery, I injured my lower back/hip area, on the Leg Press, I reckon, after having done some research.

Anyway, after several Deep Heat massages from hubby, and a couple of back exercises, I'm starting to feel better; yesterday, I thought I'd be out of it for quite a time but things seem to be looking up today and I'm hoping it continues that way.

So, no Snippets today...just resting and rehabing.

Hoping to go to the gym tomorrow whilst hubby goes to the cinema, as long as my back feels okay; I figure I can use their ellipticals and such at least.

I had probs with the lat pulldown, I had to stand on tip-toes and then some, just to get hold of the bar Next time, I'm standing on the seat, if I need to...and if they give me a telling off, I'll ask what they expect short people to do


PS: never gonna use the Leg Press again!

I dislike leg presses. They just don't feel good anymore. too bad you didn't have one of the assisted pullups machines. Those look interesting.

What flick is he seeing?

I used leg press Thursday as a part of a heavy circuit with barbell rows and dumbell bench. It works for that stuff because when you're heart rate is up you don't have to worry about passing out on heavy squats, but that's probably the singular argument for their existence.

That, and making people feel like they are at least doing SOMETHING for their legs, lol.

Hubby gave the film a 1 out of 10...it was a bit too much all over the place for him; but he said there were positive points in the portrayals though he expected a lot more because of the lead men but it just didn't deliver.

He's just gone off to the pics again.

Carl.
Yeah, I figured writing things at the gym then filling in paper here and then writing it all out again for the forum was getting tedious, and I didn't get as much time to get to other people's logs, plus I only have the odd increase in weight or breakthrough...so musings and a few snippets of lifts minus all the reps/sets stuff (possibly) seems the way to go.

I think the Leg Press would have been better had the trainer explained the finer points but as it was all I got was "Back against the seat, brace abs, push!" he omitted the points about pelvic tilt, and not to go too deep on it, in fact he kept encouraging me to go deeper just because he saw that I could, even though that didn't signify that I had good lumbar flexibility just that I had good hip flexibility and after doing research I needed more of the former for the Leg Press.

He also didn't lower the weight load from when he was demonstrating the machine, not that I had any issues with it, but I feel he should have set it to the lightest setting since I'd never used the machine before...I don't even know what weightload I was pushing, I'll have a nose at the machine this week and see, since it was about 5 or so blocks down.

I've also got to ask them if they're in lbs or kgs.
