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?
- 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
- Ten minutes of cycling: This makes me cover about 3 km, depending on how fast I am going
- About six pull-ups, need to increase this
- 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).
