I haven’t started my diet yet, but I have been taking advantage of my gym membership now that I live in a city that actually has gyms. I have two basic sorts of weightlifting workouts. My “pushing” workout consists of bench presses, dumbbell shoulder raises, dips, and a tricep isolation exercise. My “pulling” workout consists of lat pulls, rows, and bicep curls. I also have two basic running workouts. My “short” runs are 10 minutes long and I try to keep my heart rate around 180 beats per minute. My “normal” runs are 40 minutes long and I try to run at 80% of the speed of my most recent short runs. Here’s my basic workout plan:
Day 1: Weightlifting (pushing, then pulling), and a short run.
Day 2: Normal run
Day 3: Weightlifting (pulling, then pushing), and a short run.
Day 4: Rest
Day 5: Normal run
Day 6: Weightlifting (pushing, then pulling), and a short run.
Day 7: Normal run
Day 8: Rest
Day 9: Weightlifting (pulling, then pushing), and a short run.
Day 10: Normal run
Day 11: Weightlifting (pushing, then pulling), and a short run.
Day 12: Rest
Day 13: Normal run
Day 14: Weightlifting (pulling, then pushing), and a short run.
Day 15: Normal run
Day 16: Rest
I basically just repeat this program continuously. If I miss a day, I just pick up where I left off. I’ve been doing the workout for two weeks, but I haven’t seen much progress. As of now, I’m not dieting at all. I’ve recorded a few body measurements, though. At the end of the month, I’ll check my progress and plan a diet. Here’s where I am now:
I’m also toying with the idea of making a sub-blog for my diet, but I haven’t made up my mind yet.
