    Hey all :)

    Thought I would share with you what my gym routine was / is and will update my progress and changed as I go as it will be adjusted every 4-6 weeks :)

    From Oct when I joined the gym, my routine was every other day:

    25mins Upright Bike:
    5mins warm up on resistance 2
    15mins resisitance 4
    5 mins cool down resistance 2

    10mins cross trainer:
    Resistance 2

    10mins Arm Bike:
    Resistance 7

    5mins Upright Bike:
    Resistance 3

    However this was my 'start' workout to improve my general level of fitness as I had none lol. After the first week I challenged myself all the time, doing longer times upping the resistance etc.

    My current workout as of Mon 23 Nov 2009.

    Mon / Wed / Fri = Cardio workouts.
    Tue / Thur / Sat = Upper body weights workouts.

    Sunday = day off

    Cardio days =

    30mins Upright Bike:

    5 mins Resistance 3
    20mins Resistance 6
    5 mins Resistance 3

    24mins Cross Trainer interval training:

    1min Resistance 3
    3min Resistance 6

    (repeat until end of programme)

    Finish with 1000m sprint on rowing machine and 5min cool down on bike with stretches.

    Weights days =

    Lat Pull downs: 3 sets of 10 reps 62.5lb (now 75lb after 2 weeks)
    Arm Raises: 3 sets of 10 reps 15kg (now 25kg after 2 weeks)
    Lat Raises: 3 sets of 10 reps 15kg
    Front Raises: 3 sets of 10 reps 15kg
    Tricep Pulldown: 3 sets of 10 reps 32.5lb
    E-Z Bar curls: 3 sets of 10 reps 10kg + bar.
    Bicep Curls: 3 sets of 10 reps 15kg (now 20kg after 2 weeks)
    Chest Press: 3 sets of 10 reps 15kg (now 20kg after 2 weeks)
    Pectoral Flyes: 3 sets of 10 reps 15kg
    Shoulder Press: 3 sets of 10 reps 15kg (now 25kg after 2 weeks)
    Tricep Extension: 3 sets of 10 reps 15kg

    There was one more but I cannot remember it off the top of my head lol. The weights are not that heavy, but as I have just started, at this time they kill me lol.

    I love it all, I cannot wait for my next visit from day to day. If you have had a lousy day, it's a gauranteed high when you finish a work out. As soon as a workout starts getting easy, rather than waiting for my instructor to give me my new workout, I just increase the intensity/resistance. Why oh why all of these years did I avoid this????
