My fitness routine

Hello everyone,

Today, I am going to talk to you about my fitness regime!

I am not sure exactly when I started going to the gym, but I formed a proper routine about 5 weeks back. The idea was to go to the gym for four days a week, followed by two days of exercising at home and one day of complete rest. I was able to follow this religiously for three weeks straight, but then, things got messed up and I stopped going. The cold weather and the warm blanket did not help matters much.

However, now that the new year is in, I have again started hitting the gym and this time, I hope to continue this stint for a month and not put a break.

So, what exactly do I do in the gym?

  1. Twenty minutes of running+walking on the treadmill: I begin with walking and gradually start to run, occasionally slowing down to walk. I can do approx. 2.5 km within those 20 minutes, but I am still far from running for 20 minutes at a stretch
  2. Ten minutes of cycling: This makes me cover about 3 km, depending on how fast I am going
  3. About six pull-ups, need to increase this
  4. About one lap of weight training with 2.5 kg dumb bells

I am overweight by approx. 10 kg, so I have a long way to go before I am at my ideal weight. Now that I have realized this, I have some objective goal to work towards this year. The strength training part is important for me because my shoulders are quite weak (I feel tired even if I carry a small backpack for a few hours – makes me totally unsuitable for day trips or treks).

How about you guys? What are your 2018 fitness goals? Share with me in the Comments!

Here’s to a healthy 2018.

    Hey Arpita, Happy new year to you too. Sticking to the planned exercise regime is necessary. At times, it gets hard to stick to it because procrastination hits us hard. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ As far as fitness regime is concerned, I prefer doing weights. 😊

      Hey there! Hope the new year is going great for you so far πŸ™‚ I again had to take a break from gymming because of flu, but I am waiting to get back to the routine. How much weights do you usually do?
