Physical Training Log

Post by jamoni » Sun May 23, 2004 9:02 pm

The purpose of this thread is to log the physical training of ZS members, affiliates, hangers ons, and neighbors. This will, of course, be on the honor system. If you want to lie, to a bunch of strangers, on the internet, about how many situps you did, and don't mind how pathetic that sounds, that's on you.
Anyway, I'll go first. As soon as I finish this paragraph, Ima go do 3 sets of situps, pushups, jumping jacks, and shadowboxing. A set is 25 situps, 25 pushups, 100 jumping jacks, and 2 minutes shadowboxing. See ya!

Dude,

Please tell me that you've already been keeping in some kind of shape. You gotta take it easy otherwise.

Maybe start out with 3 sets of 10, first. :lol:

I'm starting physio rehab soon, so once I find out what's allowed, I'll get right on it.

Well, that's me in my avatar. I'm a skinny dude, and I work outdoors. I'm in decent shape, but that workout should have been EASY, you dig?

3 mile run today. Nothing else.

Unfortunately that was overshadowed by the large papa john's pizza I ate by myself.

Jesus Christ a pizza sounds so fucking good. If only I hadn't sworn off fast food since Super Size Me.

God...there's a papa john's coupon sitting in my office on my bookcase right now too.

I love you, raptor.



As for me? Anaerobic. Curls, 20 reps at 35lbs. (I think?) and benching 20 reps at about 45. One, the other, break. Start again. Soon I'll start spreading it out and adding a wider variety of anaerobic to work more muscles, I figure this is a good start though.

Jeff, it's a good idea to rotate a few more exercises in there, to give the muscle groups time to recover. Try adding sit ups and jumping jacks, as you can never do enough sit ups, and the jumping jacks will work your cardio really well. Alternate this with running, swimming, or cycling. Sounds like you are on the right track, though. If you are still in school look into wrestling, if not, try boxing, hapkido, judo or brazilian jujutsu. Any of these will get you in hella shape, if the school is good.

Yeah, I need to start getting more exercise types in. My friend is going to teach me some things to exercise different muscle groups and such. I actually might do wrestling if I wasn't afraid of that place. I don't know. I always wished that I had taken a martial art and stuck with it from a younger age. Walking/jogging/running is hard, as I said, my knees aren't too fond of it. I'll have to start working onthat. Cycling I can do.

Afraid of WHAT place? School? Or the wrestling team? What's to be afraid of? You go, you do it, anyone who messes with you, look them in the eye and tell them to fuck themselves. If it comes to a fight, try to win, but if you lose, at least you fought. Kind of like zombies....

Ran two miles last night at around 1am. Not exactly a great idea if I'm trying to fall asleep but still good. Other than that I do some weights, but I'm way more interested in improving my stamina.

Thanks to a rigorous PT workout with my squadron three times a week, for the past year. I can do four sets of 30 pushups/sit ups/flutterkicks and run three miles. I still struggle a bit with the push ups but I'm trying to focus on my running which should be more important unless the zombies want to arm wrestle, then I'm screwed.

Logistics Readiness Squadron. Its pretty much a fancy name for everyone thrown into one group.

Limper, thanks for making me realize how much I'm lacking in upper body strength

Train now for when the dead rise there won't be time to train.

Afraid of killing some of the wrestlers. I don't get along with any of them but the captain and he's graduating this year, so it would be me just wanting to strangle my whole team. That coupled with the fact that I'm afraid of the coach. The old coach was cool, but the new one is kind of odd.

Hmm. I didn't like many of the wrestlers on my team, but we got along. Anyway, you are TOTALLY young enough to train in the martial arts. Just find a good school and go. If money is an issue, I bet they'll cut you a deal. (if they won't, you don't want to train there anyway.) Hell, if you got NO money, just pull on some gloves and go a few rounds with Sam :D

I've tried to talk him into fighting me before.. I actually did spar with a friend for a while, but it was cut short because of our personal relationship deteriorating for unrelated reasons.

Two mile run and some shadowboxing for a warmup/warmdown. Now I'm off to the diner to study my lines for this play I'm in, Jackman's Pier.

Apparently I'm the lead, or something... :shock:
