RE: Atheists who work out
Tough mudder was probably challenging at some point... Many years ago... Now you shuffle around and queue up to cross some monkey bars. You could get a better workout by doing wind sprints around the park and throwing yourself at the jungle gym. Plus, you won't get heat stroke, since, it kind of has to be after 10pm, or you're gonna need a child of your own there.

RE: Atheists who work out
Sprained my wrist 6 weeks ago, still killing me, had to take a month off which just pissed me off. Anyway, today was back and shoulders day:

everything is lbs, cause like, I live in the US.

Superset 1:

Seated rows 185 lbs x 25 reps, 205 x 20 reps, 225 x 15 reps, 245 x 14 reps, 265 x 12 reps, 275 x 10 reps, 295 x 8 reps, 315 x 8 reps.

and each set was supersetted with:

Seated military press: 135 x 30 reps, 155 x 25 reps, 175 x 20 reps, 185 x 15 reps, 205 x 12 reps, 225 x 10 reps, 245 x 8 reps and 255 x 6 reps.

Good times

Then 100 pullups, 8 sets of pulldowns, 4 sets of laterals and 4 sets of hammer curls.

RE: Atheists who work out
Sounds good!
In the old days I used to do military press, and behind neck lat mach pulldowns.
Ended up with a torn rotator cuff which was attributed to those.
Don't know really; lots of theories re 'dangerous ex'

Had some knee problems recently and the physio warned over seated quad raises.
Still do them occasionally.

Yeah me too Unsure

Anything behind your neck in a push or pull motion places the shoulder joint and rotator cuff into a precarious position...eventually you pay for that, and I do everyday. Pain is a daily friend of mine. Military presses though are good.

True about behind the neck exercises. I tend to hold the bar pretty low (under my neck) for back squats, myself.

Lookin' swole in your pic, goodwithoutgod...that's all that matters. Laugh out load

Be true to yourself. Heart

Looking into taking a Pilates class. I've never gone to any fitness classes before. I've only ever exercised at home. But I've thought about getting into the health and fitness industry, so I guess I should actually go to a gym and see what it's like. Lol Shy

RE: Atheists who work out
I still have all my olympic plate weights, and a bunch of dumbbells. With the dumbbell sets, and plates, I've got over 2500 pounds of iron sitting around. In the last few years I've been mostly sticking to bodyweight + vest exercises, mixed with 35-60lbs dummbells. So, I've decided to sell my weirghts, and streamline everything.

I ordered some of those Selecttech 1090 dumbbells. My uncle has the 5-52lbs versions, and I was quite impressed with the space savings. I figure the 10-90lbs versions will be enough for anything I'd be doing now. Just can NEVER drop them, since they have mechanical parts

I was a personal trainer at Curves (fitness center for women). They're a chain and have some pretty much everywhere, I think. The nice part about it is that you get to workout for free and they train you to become certified in both fitness equipment and teaching Zumba classes. You can also work there part-time--which is what I did--while working my regular full-time job. I just did it for fun and to blow off steam, because my regular job can sometimes be stressful.

Anyway, it is a good entry into the health and fitness industry. They are also willing to hire people who are genuinely interested in learning and becoming certified to teach classes, but yet may not have a ton of experience. There were several ladies I worked with who were in the fitness industry, however, I had no fitness experience other than working out myself. My full-time job is in another field and not in fitness, but they were willing to train me anyway and pay for my certification.

Awesome! Thanks for the tip! Smile
