Sunday and Monday me and my girlfriend went to our belgian North Sea.
Sunday we hired bikes and went for a 30km ride along the coast line.
In the evening we had good chinese food. (rice, vegetables, soy, ...)
Monday we did a 40km ride along the coast line again. First 20km we had a hard wind ahead.
We had very good wholewheat pasta with vegetables and tomato sauce afterwards. i bought myself a protein bar for our return back home.
It was a nice weekend, it was sunny all 2 days and the North Sea always relaxes you :)
Next tuesday we're going on a holiday to Turkye for a week, can't wait.
Today or tomorrow evening i will do a running / leg training, as well as Saturday and Monday morning.

We came back from our holiday to Turkye past Wednesday morning after being stuck at the Izmir airport for 8 hours straight. It was due to a strike at our Brussels airport that we had to stay in Turkye for the whole waiting till they started working again in Belgium. Not good to finish a great holiday with. Anyway the holiday was good, we had nice weather each day lovely sunshine and the food in the hotel was good and varied as well.


I decided to take a gym membership just for the Fall / Winter time. It's in a small gym in my village and it costs € 45 (61,50 USD) for 2 months which is the cheapest i can find in kilometres around where i live.
I plan on training mainly my legs and abs there. In the wintertime I don't like to go outside in the cold and the rain for a training session, for me it will do more bad than good. Probably having a cold every 3 weeks.

So today i went for my first training, wich looked like this:

- stretching
- 20 minutes bikeriding (about 12 minutes with strong counterpower)
- leg press (which presses one leg at a time): 1 x 10 (70 kg - 154.32 lbs) / 2 x 10 (80 kg - 176.37 lbs) / 1 x 10 very slowly(80 kg - 176.37 lbs)
- leg extensions (one leg at a time): 3 x 20 (20 kg - 44 lbs)
- stretching
- ab training with 35 kg - 77.16 lbs counterweight

I been training my legs now for about one month and a half. I train 2 or 3 times a week. Yesterdays training looked like this:

- 7,5 km cycling in 20 minutes

-stretching

- leg press (which presses one leg at a time) - no rest in between sets of the same weight:
2 x 10 (80kg) / 2 x 8 (90kg) / 1 x 6 + 1 x 5 + 1 x 4 (100kg)

- leg extensions (one leg at a time): 1 x 10 (25kg) / 1 x 8 (30kg) / 1 x 6 + 1 x 5 + 1 x 3 (35kg)

- stretching

- ab training on ab machine with 40kg counterweight: 1 x 40 + 1 x 30

I notice that bit by bit my legs start growing and are getting stronger. My goal is to add muscle, strength and size. Any tips or suggestions are welcome. :)
