The Not-a-Good-Workout-when-it’s-the-1st-Day-of-Class Treadmill Sesh

18 Aug

Gotta love the gym when it’s the first day of the semester. Every piece of cardio equipment is taken by girls, the weights section is swarmed by guys, and everyone’s really there to work up a good sweat. WRONG-O! Maybe I’m wrong, but I think 85% of the people at the gym should read my “How Hard Are You Working” post-just sayin’..

Anywho- today’s workout was a doozy! Although the weather was almost perfect in the A.M., it was too hot to run outside, so I opted for a treadmill workout instead. I love/hate the treadmill for 2 reasons:

  1.  love it because I can do any type of interval: the time, speed, and incline are all right in front of me at the touch of a button.
  2. hate it because it’s quite boring (except for the pink treadmills-they’re a lot more fun to run on :P)
Here’s how it went:
  • warm-up
  • 5 minutes @ 1.5% incline
  • 7 minutes @ 4% incline
  • walking lunges & lateral raises, anterior raises, overhead presses (3X)
  • 8 minutes @  2% incline
  • 4 minutes @ 8% incline
  • floating lat. pull downs (12/arm)
  • 6 minutes @ 2% incline
  • 4 minutes @ 6% incline
  • 3 minutes @ 10% incline
…and DUNZO! This was tough (I think I say that every post) and I finished this in roughly 45 minutes.

    I love that you post your workouts! I need some inspiration hah. That is such a funny observation about the gym because Ive always noticed how the gym is packed for the first few weeks of school–mostly w guys and girls who are more interested in checking each other out than in working out! But about a month in to the semester the gym gets much less crowded 🙂
