(Perhaps you remember these photos from a previous post).
I joined Northpointe after my holiday gift pass expired. Excepting for the holidays, since November, I've spent a few hours every Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Northpointe.
Typically, TWO of my four workout days includes the following exercise routine:
1. Stationary bike-20 to 30 minutes
2. Treadmill-run 1 mile
3. 2 sets of 12 repetitions on all of the following weight machines-leg press, chest press, seated row, leg curl, shoulder press, bicep curl, tricep pushdown, ab crunch, fly, calves, preacher bicep curl, torso, lateral raise, leg extension, low row, leg adduction, and leg abduction
4. Treadmile-run 1 mile
5. Elliptical trainer-30 minutes
On the other TWO days, I do approximately the same workout as above, minus the weight machines.
After nearly killing myself, I enjoy the steam room and a shower. This morning, I didn't do any of the above. Instead, I swam, sat in the steam room for a few minutes and finally relaxed in the whirlpool for the first time. Could it be that I'm coming to my senses?
I know I shouldn't be working out as hard as I am, but until I get a grip on myself, I'll keep on with it. Oh, I almost forgot. On Saturday mornings, I take a yoga class before doing all five of the workouts listed above.
Inevitably, my workout routines will undergo changes. I hope to take some of the many other classes offered. I'd like to try all of them, but not all in one day, I promise.
Needless to say, I'm often too pooped to come up with anything of value to put on my blog. Hang in there with me and hopefully I'll start entertaining you properly again.
