Mitalisade ja kuntotesti / More medals and a fitness test

Ooh, katsokaa mitä sain!Screen shot 2013-08-29 at 7.44.48 PMOlen virallisesti käynyt salilla noin 1.5 kertaa viikossa JA juossut noin 1.5 kertaa viikossa tämän vuoden aikana. Whuhuu!

Mutta sepä ei ole päivän ainoa ilouutinen se. Tein vuosi sitten PTn kanssa kuntotestin, ja tein sen huvikseni tänään uusiksi. Ja katso, kaikki tulokset olivat parantuneet. En suotta ole käynyt nostamassa punttia. Kaikkia suorituksia tehtiin se 30s kerralla.

I have now officially been to the gym about 1.5 times per week AND been running 1.5 times per week this year. Go me! But that’s not all. A year ago I did a fitness test, and today I did it again. Lo and behold, all the numbers are up! Each move was done for 30s as many as I could:

  • Kyykyt / Squats: 24 -> 29
  • Istumaannousut / Situps: 18 -> 20
  • Punnerrukset / Pushups: 16 -> 18
  • Pystypunnerrus / Shoulder press: 20 -> 30
  • Selän ojennus / Hyperextension: 22 -> 25

Vuosi sitten multa otettiin myös rasvaprosentti, joka oli muistaakseni jotain 32-33%. Tänä vuonna kierrän kyseisen mittauslaitteen kaukaa, koska se alkaa kuitenkin huutamaan että SINÄ SYÖT SUKLAATA SIELLÄ, EI SE AUTA. Niin syönkin. Kun joo, olishan se kiva olla vähärasvaisempi, mutta se dieetin ylläpito vaan ei ole huvittanut tarpeeksi. Mutta hei, oon vahvempi kun vuosi sitten! Ja jaksan juosta enemmän kun vuosi sitten! Vuosi sitten kävin juoksemassa 4.12km aikaan 33:15min, eli tahdilla 8:05min/km. Nyt vitoseen menee noin tuo aika, pidemmällä lenkillä.

Last year my fat% was measured too and it was something like 32-33%. This year I’m totally avoiding the measuring machine, since it would just yell at me for eating chocolate. Which I have been doing. Because being on a diet is just boring. But I’m stronger than year ago and I can run more too. Last year this day I did 4.12 km run in 33:15min. This year, I run 5k in that time (during a longer workout). 

Niin heiluin mä siellä salilla muutenkin.

  • Mave / Deadlift: 10 * 20kg, 10 * 40kg, 10 * 3 * 60kg
  • Pullover: 3 * 10 * 10kg
  • Haba taljassa / Cable bicep curl: 3 * 5 * 15kg
  • Ojentajat taljassa / Triceps pushdown: 3 * 10 * 17,5kg
  • Rinta ristitaljassa / Flyes: 3 * 10 * 7,5kg/side

Tests: done Results: not in yet

First meeting and it went fine. I didn’t die or turn into a zombie (what a pity). The Tanita scale for body composition measurements was for some reason not available, so I’ll get those results later on.

The test results are in on Thursday, but I remember some of them…

  • Squats, 30s: ~25
  • Back, 30s: ~20
  • Sit-ups, 30s: ~18
  • Push-ups, 30s: ~15
  • Dumbbell presses, 6kg dumbbells, 30s: ~20

I don’t really remember better, because I had to concentrate on doing and not counting. I’ll update the Progress-page on Thursday then (and when I get the Tanita results). After the test part, PT asked me if I was in a hurry. I said no. “Well, let’s do a little core workout then?” “Sure.”

One hour and several planks, crunches, twists and side planks later we were done. And let me tell you, it was awesome! The last rounds and reps were pure pain, and I loved every minute of it. Can’t wait for Thursday and gym.

Panic before the testing

Today is the testing day and I’m pretty much in panic.

  1. Last time I had a body composition test was in January 2012. I’m certain that all my muscle mass has been replaced with fat.
  2. I’m convinced that while doing a stationary bicycle ergo meter test, I’m going to drop dead and die because my bad shape.
  3. I’m going to fail the muscle fitness test. Spectacularly.

Well, I’ll report the results later this evening. If I’m not dead (see item 2).
