Crunching in the Afternoon

Day Seven – Monday 6th February 2012

I did another session today that was away from the gym. I had a gig last night which ended up throwing out my entire evening routine and I didn’t get to bed until after midnight. I knew right then that the 5:00am start for the gym at 6:00 was not going to be a possibility at all so I had to put other measures in place to ensure that I would get some sort of fitness training done today.

My initial plan was to go straight to the gym after finishing at Aquinas, this week my teaching schedule isn’t at full capacity yet so it would prove a rare opportunity for an afternoon session. Unfortunately after completing my teaching at Aquinas, which included another two students who just enrolled today, I didn’t have enough time to get to the gym as well as get down to ECU Mt Lawley to pickup my books and name badge for my University course I start on the 27th of February and then be back at my music studio ready for a 4pm lesson. It meant I went with plan C – the abs and arms workout.

This workout I have been doing recently when time has been tight just to ensure that I do some sort of exercise if time gets too tight. Today’s session was a good one with my abs really tightening up and starting to cramp during the second set of the repetitions. I managed to complete the three sets of 30 sit ups  to work my abdominals (full crunches) with 3 sets of 20 pushups in between each set. I don’t know why but today I just found the exercises more challenging than usual…however I am happy for that to be the case as well.

Tomorrow I am really keen to get back into the gym and do a full cardio session, it will be a bit of a challenge as I need to fast tonight for 12 hours as I am having some routine blood tests done first thing tomorrow which would be after I have done my session.
