10 kms fast walk (I did it YES)

PM
Then I tried a new full body training that a friend of mine made specially for me.

15 minutes static bike level 8 (1-20 level) / heart rate 120 max
Even if it was just to get hot muscles for my training, I think I should make it beat faster next time. Maybe UP the level.

Bench : 2x10x20 lbs (so Hard)
http://muscul.az.free.fr/pb01.htm

Abductors : 2x25 (left + right)

Abdos : 3 superset series
30 crunchs + 20 rotation crunchs + 15 relevé bassin
http://muscul.az.free.fr/ae09.htm
http://muscul.az.free.fr/a20.htm
http://muscul.az.free.fr/ae26.htm
Crunch's series were FINGER IN THE NOSE

Finally, I can say that day one was REALLY GREAT !

Yes, It was just to try....
It needs some adjustments.
I want to know how I feel with this programm before asking an advice to the coach.
First I try to make the movements as well as possible.
