Monday night and we went to Drumoyne Glasgow Club for the first time tonight. We got there at around 17:15 after work and after a quick change we went into the gym. I’d been told it was small, but it was actually really small. Lol. There were about 4 treadmills, 3 bikes, 4 cross trainers, 2 rowing machines, a few weights machines and a bench and full set of dumbbells.
Fit Girl jumped on the last treadmill and there weren’t any cardio machines left by the time I got in. (I didn’t want to run anyway, as id run this morning). The bench was free so I went on it and did the following:
Bench Press: 3 x 8, 14kg
Single Arm Row: 6 x 8, 14kg
Shoulder Press: 3 x 10, 8kg
Seated Lateral Raise: 3 x 8, 6kg
Bicep Curls: 3 x 8, 8kg
Tricep Kickbacks: 6 x 8, 12kg
Leg Press: 3 x 8, 57kg
Calf Press: 3 x 8, 57kg
Weights: 22:30, calories: 150.
Ave HR: 104, Max HR: 130, Garmin Training Effect: 1.2
I was going to keep going but the free weights were taken, and all the machines were too. So I went through to set up for Bodypump.
The class was taken by Sharon, and she turned out to be very good, and most importantly professional. We’ve had a body pump instructor before who doesn’t ask the right questions, assumes everyone knows what they’re doing and doesn’t bother about asking if people are new or have any injuries.
Sharon was good. She noticed we were new to the class and popped over for a chat before the class. And throughout the class she remained professional, explaining the weights we should do and the exercises we’d be doing.
Here’s the weights I did:
Warm up: 5kg
Back: 5kg (increase to 6kg)
Triceps: 2.5kg, 5kg
Lunges: 7.5kg (decrease to 6kg)
Shoulders: 2.5kg, 5kg
Bodypump: 1 hour, 350 calories.
Ave HR: 95, Max HR: 125. Garmin Training Effect: 1.2
I think we’ll be back to that class. 🙂
Half way through the class I felt a bit of a hunger pang and I decided I’d have a chocolate milkshake when I got home.
Not eating carbs is ok, i can do it as ling as I eat plenty of the foods I’m allowed. But I’m meant to be cutting out milk too. With the training I’m doing, I’m going to be flexible and drink milkshakes for recovery, and carbs if I think I need them 🙂
Homemade tomato and basil soup and a salad for dinner tonight. Tasty.
