Ooh what's front crawl training?
God I wish I wasn't so insecure about my body to swim. I'm a somewhat hairy man and haven't been in a pool shirtless since I was like.. 14? Swimming is so nice and easy on your joints.
Totally agree with getting in being the priority over how successful those sessions are. Turning up is a huge chunk of the battle!
Let me know how the 1k swim progresses, very keen to hear how it goes!
Excellent thanks for the links.
If you can muster the courage, do the dance classes! I grew up in a dancing/theatrical family and being able to move is a seriously underrated ability. Any specific genres you'd want to look into?
Yay for no hills! My town is littered with them so I'd laugh at the idea of cycling anywhere. Because I'm lazy when it comes to cycling..
That waist fat clings on like nothing else aye - I dropped 12kg one time and still had the love handles. I'm too scared to go further cause my strength dive bombed so I embrace them for the time being. Maybe after I hit these next lifting goals I could see if I can cut down to having visible abs. Broccoli and baby spinach paved the way for my weight loss.
Nice!! I've always liked the look of Olympic Lifts - I'd need to go to a different gym to try them though. My current one doesn't have the rubber plates or the platforms needed... It's decidedly "old school".
Great plan to keep the endurance levels up. I'm happy as long as I can still run about 7km when needed but I certainly don't work on it like I should.
Keep me posted on your lifting progress, what are the numbers looking like now?
I think that's excellent you've taken up jogging. Hopefully it helps a lot with quitting smoking! I remember talking to some rugby team mates who used to smoke and they said something along the lines of "eventually it made no sense. Smoking and trying to keep fit just don't work, one had to go."
Being able to bust out a 5km while still being a smoker is impressive! I feel you on the goal issue with jogging though. At a certain point I just get bored of the running. Weightlifting is at least done very quickly in that sense!
Well I hope things improve for you.
Oooooh I've never managed to do the splits. I bet I would be so inflexible right now - maybe that's something I can work towards. My sister owns a dance school and the flexibility of the people going through the classes is outrageous.
That sounds really shit :( What's happened?
Honestly these days I just do cardio so I can eat more..
Instagram is weird. If it's not bots liking my rare posts, it's random fitness gurus following me because I liked a powerlifting video, then unfollowing me within a few hours once my attention has been caught (I assume).
In regards to the watches,
Do the marks follow a design of a 'letter inside something else' out of tradition or something? I thought maybe it's because if they can get a mark close in likeness to something already well established it may help sales but I'm sure I'm off the mark there.
