It’s been over a year since I last wrote a blog about CF & Fitness.
What a year it has been too.
In October 2014 I was doing the following program:
|Incline dumbbell bench press||12||4||8-12|
|Chest press machine||25||4||8-12|
|Incline dumbbell fly||10||4||8-12|
|Cable rope press down||12.5||3||10-12|
|Dumbbell shoulder press||10||3||8-12|
|Underarm barbell row||25||4||8-12|
In addition to this, I also did the cardio choice of rowing, cycling, jogging or swimming.
In 2015 I started working in a retirement home, where my physical activity level rose considerably.
Physical activity has gone from:
37 hours low activity job and 3 hours workout in the gym per week
25 hours of high activity job and 3 hours workout in the gym per week.
A BIG difference eh?
As a result of this, I’ve had to decrease the weights used in my workouts slightly and by October 2015 I noticed as I got used to my high physical activity job, I gained my strength in the gym back.
Family and friends have commented how bulky I’ve become as I gained strength over the last couple of years.
I’ve found it quite an achievement where I’m at now going from a life of no physical activity to not getting enough.
