It has been a while since I last updated the blog. I have been too busy working out and of course working. Or maybe I just haven’t organised by time effectively…
The miserable London weather – cold air, rain and even snow – had conspired to make me feel slightly depressed. Normally the weather doesn’t effect my moods, but Winter has lasted for too long. It’s Spring, we deserve better weather! To cheer myself up I bought a box of chocolates and proceeded to eat the whole box. My mood was improved, however all those calories were probably not so good for my waistline…
Morning: 20 minute yoga session.
Evening: 20 minute yoga session
2 hour tennis session with Mr T. A fun workout on what was a bitterly cold morning. My game wasn’t too bad…
Gym day. I worked out my chest, shoulders, arms and legs using a combination of free weights and machines. I also did 20 minutes of cardio on the rower, cross trainer and cyling machine.
It is funny watching people do a set then stare at their arms in the mirror. Jokers!
KO Boxing Circuit at a local boxing gym. This was tough… very tough. I felt myself getting dizzy near the end, but I managed to pull myself together. My t-shirt was absolutely ringing with sweat.
I had a few aches and pains the next day, and badly bruised knuckles. Never the less I had a lot of fun, and I will be back.
Morning: Chin Ups 5 x 8 reps.
Football training and 5 a sides. Once again I had fun and a really good cardio workout.
It was meant to be gym day, but my legs were shot from the boxing circuit and football, so I gave it a miss.
Morning: 20 minute yoga session
Evening: 20 minutes using a foam roller. A new awesome piece of kit that I have bought.
Morning: 20 minutes yoga session, followed by 10 minutes with the foam roller.
Evening: 20 minutes yoga session, followed by 10 minutes with the foam roller.
The KO Boxing Circuit is going to be an awesome addition to my goal of become fitter, leaner and meaner. 90 minutes of pure hell… As I have said in the past variety is the spice of life, without it I would get bored. Becoming fit doesn’t have to boring, unless boring is what rocks your boat!
Over and out from the Garry Wynters the Getting Fit at 40 guy… I’m one more day closer to achieving my goal of developing a seriously good body and becoming all around fit!
