The insanity continues

Monday, November 10, 2008

Will all apologies to Susan Powter I continue my journey into insanity fitness. Last week I completed the One hundred Push ups programme with my final test. I only accomplished seventy one not one hundred but since seventy one matches my age I will stop that particular insanity and move on.

Today I executed a different insanity challenge. In response to a challenge from another team I belong to I did 150 lunges in one day instead of one week. I did three sets of fifty with five to seven minutes between sets. With luck I will be able to stand and walk tomorrow.

In keeping with my interests as a personal trainer I will be starting a new form of workout tomorrow in order to be able to speak intelligently about different forms of training. I purchased a used Total Trainer from my local Craigslist for $60. This is similar to the Total Gym of infomercial fame and the Pilate's apparatus which is the precursor to both. The "new" Gravity Training System uses similar equipment. I will train on this apparatus for the next six weeks using both the supplied workouts and some gravity type workouts . At the end of that time I will post again to bring everyone interested up to date on a crazy old man who refuses to accept age as a deterrent.

    Have you tried Kettlebells yet? I find them interesting.

    Check out IZZY BARISH on YouTube, as he is 59 and does Pilate's and all other forms of exercise. His videos clips are very interesting.

    Another guy on YouTube does a PRIMITIVE work out, where he swings heavy ropes, carries sandbags, pounds a 20# sledgehammer and carries a SLOSH PIPE, among the work out exercises.

    I've also started the P90X work out with Tony Horton. I'm awful at it, but I like the concept of changing exercises and doing a variety.

    You look great!
