PNS day 29 – Ouchuga wooga!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 11:15 AM

Mysterious are the ways of my metabolism. After the weekend’s pizza flavored disaster, I hit the scales this morning and see that I’m back to my lowest-ever weight since starting PNS training. Woohoo!

Good workout this morning, the kind I end up drenched in sweat afterward. 30 minutes on the cross trainer, some weights (lever chest press and lever front pulldown), and then abs.

The trainer guy in the gym, who’s very experienced and obviously knows what he’s talking about, to judge by his bulging muscles, told me to concentrate on muscle stamina (20 reps at least in each set) rather than strength. I think I’ll do stamina reps on legs, back and shoulders, and strength or stamina and then strength on pushups and pullups.

Tomorrow morning I hit the pool. Looking forward to it.

Oh, and shapirac, I finished my Vorkosigan book last night and am now reading Heinlein’s Starship Troopers again. I’ll take motivation any damned place I can find it!
