Triceps at work

It’s always nicer to workout when the gear is right. Nothing’s too snug or too short or out of place all the time. For some reason, there is no such thing as too big when it comes to training clothing. The baggier the better usually.

The most important thing is that I got myself a new training notebook. It adds hardcore pro -feeling to my appearance, or what do you think:

Anyway, I did something at the gym (besides took photos of my new notebook):

  • Dumbbell bench press: 4 * 8, 19kg
  • Dips: 4 * 10
  • Triceps pushdown: 4 * 7, 18.75kg
  • Biceps cable curl: 4 * 10, 16kg
  • Dumbbell side bend: 15 * 10kg
  • Russian twists: 3 * 15/side, 2,5kg
  • Leg raises: 2,5kg

As I might have mentioned before, I started using Fitocracy. The point of the system is to collect points. The more points you have, the higher your level is. Each workout you do earns you more points. Each workout you log in, a Fitocracy robot tells you that “You are awesome!” (call me easy, but that’s fun).

They also have Quests and Achievements. The achievements are something that you get, for example when you do squats you get some:

Then they have Quests at Fitocracy. You can either select one and do it, or you do it when doing your normal routines. Here’s one of my done Quests:

The fun thing about the whole thing is that it makes you do a little bit more. Today I ended up doing a Quest to kind of end warm-up. I did squat jumps, lunges, squats and pushups. Just for the heck of it.

You can also keep track of your workouts and see how you progress:

Squats and Fitocracy

I found yesterday this app called Fitocracy. It’s some kinda social app and workout diary, and I’m just trying it out. Apparently it has gotten appraisals for being addictive like a video game, but I’m not so sure. It was easy to record a workout, and it seems I get points for every workout and the more points I have, the higher my level is. Anyone else using this app?

  • Deadlift: 1 * 10 40kg, 2 * 10 50kg, 1 * 10 55kg
  • Front squat: 1 * 10 20kg, 1 * 10 30kg, 1 * 10 40kg
  • Sumo squat: 4 * 10 90kg
  • Bent-over barbell row: 4 * 10 45kg
  • One-leg press: 3 * 10/leg 120kg
  • Straight-arm pushdown: 3 * 10 20kg
  • Sidebends: 3 * 15/side 15kg
  • Decline situps: 2 * 15 5kg, 2 * 15 2.5kg

I didn’t feel like lunges today, so I tried front squat. Man it hurts to hold the bar in front of you. Maybe it just needs getting used to… I liked doing the squat, but the bar was evil.
