Today at the gym I leg pressed 80 kgs. If you look at my Monday entry, you might notice my weight is less than 80 kgs. As in I leg pressed more than body weight (I have done this before but it was on one of those hydrolic weight machines so I didn’t really trust that I’d done around 100 kgs – this was using good old fashioned weight plates, you can trust those).
Of course, that is nowhere near as good as Kek, who can practically leg press a Mack truck, but it rocks my world!
I’ve been hearing lots of good stuff about pineapple juice and how it helps with muscle soreness so I had one after the gym. I don’t normally drink juice – I’d prefer my fruit intact – but it was super good (it also had banana, strawberries and something else) and gave me the energy for the 5 km walk home. I am the only person who feels like a slacker if I don’t walk to and from the gym as well as working out?
I also read on Morsey Runs about doing 8 second intervals. I’m not sure it they really are some kind of fat burning magic but it stopped me from getting into zone out cruisey mode, which I often do on the bike.
On Monday, I forgot to post my weekly challenge. I think this week’s will be to try a new class at the gym.
