16 Mar 2012: Body Pump Up The Jam

Weigh-in, measure and Body Pump session at the WW gym tonight. Body Pump, Pump Up The Jam… Geddit? lol

Daily water intake: 1000ml

19:00 – Salmon and greens
22:00 – Glass milk, bed


5 minute warm-up on bike – 2.082km
500m warm-up row – 2m 29s
15 fitball squats, 15 push-ups (all knee)
500m row – 2m 03s
15 fitball squats, 15 push-ups (5 toe, 10 knee)
500m row – 2m 00s
15 fitball squats, 15 push-ups (10 toe, 5 knee)
500m row – 2m 11s (out of puff around 300m, recovered and rowed harder for final 80m or so)


Toe push-ups came easier as the gym session progressed – the first set of push-ups it simply wasn’t happening. Partly due to shoulder hurting, partly (I suspect) mental. Having got up at 4:15 I was effectively running a bit late, so that was probably in the back of my mind (cranking out 15 push-ups is a time-consuming process at the moment).

On the flip side – some great times on the rowing, with 2 minutes all but broken for a single 500m row.

Interesting how these things (possibly) work…

Body Pump didn’t happen in the end – due to keys being locked in the gym LOL
