calling all gym bunnies
yep, we just got back from the gym. i'm recording my progress here cos i keep losing track of all my pieces of paper. well actually i have an exercise journal, but i keep forgetting to take it lol.
katie's typical gym workout =
20 minutes on rowing machine 4307m (2:08 min/500m)
*OR* 20 minutes cross trainer 3.0km (max heartbeat/min 160 - 170)
head trickling sweat. feeling fine.
(of the various push-me-pull-you varieties)
lat pull downs 30kg 12 reps
chest press 20 - 25kg 12 reps
vertical row 25 kg 12 reps
tricep extension 25 kg 12 reps
leg press 40kg 12 reps
calf raises 40kg 20 reps
abs: four different pilates-exercises including obliques 12 reps
mari's magical sit ups 12
little stretch/cool down
total workout time: 45 mins
so my question is:
is this a reasonable workout?
cos my only comparison is Bulldog aka Arnie Schwarzenegger, and i'm a chick. my goal is 45 - 50 mins at the *gym* one day, and 20 mins *pilates* the next. in reality i'm exercising 4 - 5 times a week.
what exercise are all you sparkly peeps doing?
please inspire me cos daylight saving has just ended which means that we're heading into unbikini weather (and i'm terrified i'm gonna fall off the wagon and start eating all the pies)!!!
