Back in the saddle again - BartMan
Right, the post sevens time to get into a good fitness regime thingy again.
Will post my weight tonight after leaping on the scales...
So, starting yesterday...
Tuesday 10th February 2009: 5000m row - 18:36.1
Wednesday 11th Feb 2009: AM Weights - chest and arms: 5000m row - 18:12.1
Thursday 12th Feb: [b]WEIGHT: 97.4kg[/b]: AM Weights - back and shoulders: 5000m row - 18:41.4
Saturday 14th Feb: morning 6000m row - 23:06.4
Monday 16th: 6000m row: 22:46.9 5000m row: 18:56.4
Tuesday 17th: [b]WEIGHT: 96.4kg[/b]: Morning - weights, chest / arms. LUNCH: Row 5000m 18:36.4 this row much easier than the 18:36 odd I rowed the first row back on the C2. Fitness coming up quick. Don't think I'll try for a sub 18 for a while though - not until it gets cooler!
Wednesday 18th: Lunch row: 6000m 22;08.0. Evening row: 5000m 18:34.1
Thursday 19th: AM weights - back, shoudlers, biceps. Lunch Row: 5000m 18:54.1
Friday 20th: Lucn Row: 6000m 22:57.4
Already after 5 rows can feel my body getting 'tighter' if that makes sense. While I have been doing weights consistently over the last few months, you just can't beat the all over body workout that rowing gives you - core especially I reckon!!

Fuck me Bart, but you're doing some intensive stuff. If you keep that up you'll be anwhippet with arms - nothing but biceps' balls and ribcage.
Do you dip in and out of the exercise regime?
Don't think that'll ever happen Cato, love the grub too much - I train so I can eat what I want when I want - within reason that is!
Over the last year, after having a rowing fixation that saw me rowing 100,000+ metres a week, I got back into the weights again, and the rowing has slowed as a result.
So only just now getting back into the rowing again a little more seriously, but still wanting to do the weights, as I really enjoy them - more so now a long tern shoulder injury has repaired, so I can actually lift weights again!!
And after a weekend in Wellington doing nothing but eat and drink, all the last few weeks training will be for niothing!!
