Re: Most influential Books you've read

The China Study is what turned me vegan overnight, and I hadn't even read halfway.

Re: IronMum's Training Journal

Yep! But it's even better when others notice the changes! Arms and Abs day today. Trainer-buddy has dropped reps to 8 for most exercises and increased the weight. 4 sets for most exercises. Yeeeeah! (I think this order is correct) - 4x15 narrow pushups (for triceps) - seated overhead dumbell press -...

Re: IronMum's Training Journal

whoops forgot to update... Have done heavy arms and back this week (missed legs and a bootcamp session). Started hanging ab crunches, 10 reps but my hands are slipping by 8 so I have to go faster :) Today was Shoulders. Had to change it up a bit as someone was on the smith machine for ages when we (...

Re: IronMum's Training Journal

No weights yesterday (it was chest day) but bootcamp had a ton of pushups. Did as many on my toes as I could manage. And Fartlek method running for 20 minutes...

Re: IronMum's Training Journal

Back day, my favourite lately! - assisted wide pullip - Superset of seated row + bent over barbell row - lat pulldown - one arm bent over dumbell row (yay up to 12.5kg after all that exercise, the weights in my gym go from 10kg with a big jump to 12.5kg. New PB) - front pulldown - back hyperextensio...

blocked ears after training?

After I finish at the gym and come back home, my ear gets blocked. This only happens after a heavy session. I take care to breathe properly and not hold my breath but I could be more diligent. Today was a particularly strenuous gym session. Anyone else get this? It's driving me nuts. It resolves its...

Re: Synny's training journal

new studio sounds great! My trainer-buddy and I are the only women who lift heavy at the gym (and who stay in there for a considerable length of time), we have a reputation for being the two loudest grunters. People have often asked if we get 'looks' from other people but to be honest I've never rea...

Re: IronMum's Training Journal

Bootcamp this morning. Was supposed to do shoulders+abs in gym afterwards but there was a fair bit of ab work in bootcamp and some shoulders (light weights, high rep stuff...) So trainer-buddy and I called it a day. Can't express how much I dislike low weight-high rep work but as it's part of bootca...

Re: IronMum's Training Journal

Here's my before shot from June 2011. No date evidence (doh) so you just have to take my word for it, plus some friends are reading this anyway :) I had bought those 'slimming' jeans but ordered the wrong size by mistake, so they were three sizes too small. As you can see, they barely did up. I coul...
