Gym Session

Yesterday I had done my workout around the middle of the day.

gym sessionThis was Friday’s workout.

Warm-up: My warm-up was pretty good today, I did things I wanted to do.  As usual it had chest in it, I rode the exercise bike for 5 minutes and lost 40 calories.  I then did multiple stretches for the chest, shoulders, and calves.
Chest: My first exercise was Incline Dumbbell Presses for 3 sets.  My first set was with 30 pounds and I did 15 reps.  My next set was with 50 pounds for 10 reps.  For my last set I got a spot for 60 pound dumbbells and I managed 6 reps by myself and I did 9 reps and the last assisted rep took ages.

My second exercise was Seated Machine Presses.  I started with 90 pounds for 12 reps and by now I couldn’t push because my Chest was full of blood.  My second set I redeemed myself by pushing 130 pounds for 8 reps and 2 cheat reps.  For my last set I dropped to 110 pounds and did 10 reps.

My next exercise was Close Grip Bench Presses.  I did 3 straight forward sets of 12 reps from 40 pounds to 80 pounds and down to 45 pounds.

My last exercise for the Chest was Pullovers.  I started with 30 pounds and did 12 easy reps.  My next set was with 50 pounds for 12 reps.  My last set was with 60 pounds for 12 reps.

Abdominals: For my abs I started with crunches for 20 reps.  I then chucked on 20 pounds and did 2 more sets of 20 reps with less of an angle of motion.

I then moved to Machine Ab Crunches and used the stack of 200 pounds for a set of 20 reps.  I pounded on a 40 pound dumbbell and did 2 more sets of 20 reps.

Calves: I started with Donkey Calf Raises for 15 reps with 200 pounds.  I put it up to 260 pounds and did 2 more sets of 15 reps.

I then moved to Seated Calf Raises and started with 40 pounds for 15 reps then, 60 pounds for 15 reps and again 40 pounds for 15 reps.

Warm-down: Consisted of riding the bike for 2 minutes burning 10 calories.

Gemini’s Timing Belt

Yesterday Shawn also helped me fix the timing on the Gemini and today I took it for my first spin around the block with Rory and Keith behind me in their cars.

Carey’s House doing Assignment

We did the usual and went out and I went to Carey’s house with Keith to do an assignment on the typewriter.  Rod owes me a lesson for it but I still haven’t seen it.

Sydney Blowhole All-Nighter

Yesterday we went out about 8:00 pm and had an all-nighter down in Sydney at a blowhole place near the ocean where you could see all of Sydney including the Harbor Bridge and the Opera House and a lot of lights.  3 cars full of people went.  I ended up crashing at William’s house at 5:00 am this morning and sleeping 4 hours.

Sherry’s House Party

Tonight is another party at Sherry’s house, William’s old girlfriend.  It was meant to be invitation only but we all changed that.  I was going to go with Valeriya.  I rang her on Friday and she doesn’t seem interested so, if I don’t see her at the party I’m not going to worry about her.If I see Valeriya tonight I’ll be happy.

Shawn here to pick me up Cya later.
