Gym Diary: Tuesday, November 6, 2012


          Part of the point of my working out is to enjoy checking myself out for results.  Obviously, I don't mind that part at all.


     I've gotten to where I can do four rounds of 15 dips, but I've noticed that doing them first affects what I can do during other chest exercises.  I've been doing them first for several weeks now, so I think I'm ready to see what I can do after changing the order a bit.


     The leg curl machine is near the dips machine, so I did them within the same circuit of exercises.


     On some days, I try to avoid sitting down, for I think that standing up while exercising can add strength to my core.  But, on other days, I can isolate some muscle groups better by sitting down.  That has been the case when I've used the rotary torso machine (above) to work on my side abs.






     For a few weeks I've been struggling to do dumbbell arm curls with 20 kg dumbbells.  Today, after one round, I decided to go back to 18 kg.  This gym does not have a set of 19 kg dumbbells.


     The highest plate setting on this flye machine is "20."  That's the setting I use.  I wish it went higher.  Usually, I save this for last.
