Workout schedule, diet and health discussion

Thursday, September 29

I joined a gym yesterday, so that was almost 4 months off, since my other gym membership expired at the end of May. During this time I’ve been doing some walking and occasional pushups/situps at home, but not too much really. I think I was under-eating for a while, with it being summer and me not doing much I was just eating when hungry which obviously wasn’t enough. This meant that I had no energy when I woke up and at the end of the day I had a lot of energy. So, I tried eating more and it seemed to work.

Before the first session I took my readings…

  • Weight: 153.2 lbs
  • Fat: 13.4%
  • Water: 60.0%
  • Muscle: 44.1%
  • BMI: 21.5%
  • BMR: 1707

The numbers looked wrong so I went out and did some chores then came back and re-weighed and it was basically the same info.

Here’s the info from May 4th…

  • Weight: 160.4 lbs
  • Fat: 15.2%
  • Water: 58.1%
  • Muscle: 42.7%
  • BMI: 22.5%
  • BMR: 1751

So, it looks like I’ve lost weight, lost fat and gained muscle (or muscle is a higher percentage because of the loss of fat). Can’t argue at all with the loss of weight but I have been walking quite a bit this week so that may have affected the readings.

Anyway, was collared by a personal assistant on the way in and did an induction.

  • 2 mins light warmup on treadmill
  • 10 pushups
  • 10 dips
  • 10 leg raises
  • 4 neutral, wide grip pullups
  • 10 lat pulldowns (70kg)
  • Some boxing training
  • Situps
  • 2 mins on the treadmill

It seemed to go ok though I was losing it at the end of the boxing. Will be interesting to see how long it takes to recover. Going to make sure I eat properly for this.

Note: Also, I need to change the scales and update my age, maybe that effects it.
