Lifting weights

Thursday, September 02, 2010

I know I need to lift weights to lose the right type of weight. However, I'm having a hard time getting to the gym. The gym is only open for two hours six days a week during Ramadan. It's really annoying. I decided to do bodyweight exercises and did the upper body exercises this week, but will try to hit the gym to get my legs tomorrow since I'm off from work.

This is one of the annoying things about living in an underdeveloped country. The workout tools are less than desirable and I have to resort to primitive things to keep from losing muscle weight instead of fat weight.

I'm going to make a point to at least do body weight strength exercises and attempt to get to the gym twice a week to do the rest.

    Keep trying... you actually can do alot of really good leg workouts without a gym. Lunges and squats with body weights are great and quite a workout. There are several different variations of both you can use as well as floor exercises to workout at those legs!
    Go girl go!
