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.
