    Did my first session with a personal trainer

    Two more days on shift

    and then I'm off. First thing I'm going to do, hit the gym. I can't wait! It's difficult with my line of work to get to the gym on my days on. So I make sure I make up for it when I'm off. Favorite exercises, squats and deadlifts. That's where I'll start. And then maybe I'll...

    You Can Just Feel It

    I was on my third set of seated curls when her reflection in the mirror caught my eye. Still some distance away I was only sure I hadn’t seen her before.  New to the gym or at least to the early morning crew of lunatics of which I consider myself one.  I mean really, who in...

    Quick question for people

    who do push ups : How do you breathe when doing them? For some reason I seem to hold my breath while doing push-ups and that can't be safe :|

    I swim twice a week, a few kilometres each time.

    I workout twice a week. I have two routines involving cardio and free weights. Regular exercise is very important for good health, even sexual health!
