    Default Leg Press II

    Started a new job, there are showers, tennis courts and a park about 1 mile away.

    I have an hour to change, run to the park, workout, run back/cooldown, shower and get dressed.

    I've got 25 min at the park and a skipping rope, sturdy bench, basketball court.

    Today I did (3-5 sets of everything) step ups on the parkbench, decline sit ups, skipping, push ups, bounding, a lap around the park before I ran back to work.

    Give me ideas! I'm so used to working out with a partner or with weights/in a gym. I want to really get back into plyo so I've got stuff like jump squats, jump split lunges, star jumps, knees up, Malcolms (but I don't want to get grass all over me), help me put it together into a focused, quick burst please! I'll still hit the weights x2 evenings a week and do interval sprints and longer runs
    on other days so no need to tell me about that.

    Also, tips on ensuring my gym bag doesn't smell plz. Boss is chubby and not
    happy I'm working out, she decided against McD's for lunch and got Thai takeaway instead when she saw me get back and wrinkles her nose
    at anything that would suggest she should get fit.

    Buy some poupouri and some rice, stick in an old tights leg in your gym bag to absorb smells, take it out to dry when you put your gear in the wash.
    Don’t say, “It’s been a good day” till sundown.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good wife” till she’s buried.
    Don’t say, “It’s a good sword” till you’ve tested it.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good girl” till she’s married off.
    Don’t say, “The ice is safe” till you’ve crossed it.
    Don’t say, “The beer is good” till you’ve drunk the last of it.

    Put clumping kitty litter in your gym shorts to absorb odor and wetness.

    If you buy a kettlebell you can do intense interval workouts without needing for get down on the floor for exercises like burpees etc..

    A boxing or kickboxing class 2 or 3 times a week would give you the kind of whole-body circuit workout you're looking for, if you can spare the time outside of work.

You do that with every single poster here. You do this until they see things your way. The "correct way". It's vile.

    Some workout ideas:

    1. Resistance training: buy chocolate cake and resist eating the whole thing at once.

    2. Powerlifting: pretend to be excited to see your boss and attempt to lift her with big hugs.

    3. Cardio: invite just about any guy from socioide to visit you and be nimble as they chase you around desks.

    4. Cooldown: throw bucket of ice on their genitals.

    Cullion - was considering getting a PT once a week to meet me at the park but work hours are erratic, meetings etc and uni is starting so not getting into anything where I have to make a commitment to anyone else. My boy holds the mitts and kickpads for me on weekends when he is not sulking/getting wasted.

    M - you kill me.

    The next 8 weeks is called 'In pursuit of youth'. I am going to kick ass.

    1 Gallon of H2O = appx. 5 lbs.

    Carry one in each hand and use as weights then give yourself a hobobath before heading back to work.


    Also get a resistance band. Easy to store and use on trees, benches, winos, etc.
