Cool Workout Routines

What do ya'll do at the gym for work out? I used to run a lot and then I realized I hated it and it also made me look like a skeleton; at college now and there's a bunch of Physical Therapy grad students who give free help at our gym and I've been doing weights since the start of this September. I actually look forward to going now! Every other day for me now, even in the freezing cold winter death

I'm still really weak so I won't post what I lift until someone else weaker than me does first. But it still does feel really good, always a great way to get out some stress.

Cool- I think since living in the city I have forgotten how to ride a bike! Isn't that supposed to be impossible?

What do you do with the barbells?

YOU FORGOT TO RIDE A BIKE :O

I Live out in the sticks (Well,2 hours from Sydney CBD) so i ride my bike everywhere....

I Dont know the technical terms but i only start doing barbells a week ago and i read in a book that you shouldnt do too many to start out with so im only doing 20 at the moment LOL.

On the other hand,a 40km bike ride doesnt phase me

I'm impressed! Sheesh you've obv. got the cardio working well hahahaha

With weights, what has made me notice the biggest difference is just doing weights like 5LBs more than i am comfortable with, but doing fewer repetitions and more sets, basically until I can't do them anymore. For me this is usually 6-10 reps max. Also, drinking Whey has made helped a LOT. Highly recommend

I try and get in at least 100-200 pushups a day, most of them tricep pushups, using barbells as stands. Then I do bench every other day, that is, when I have access to a bench, which is most of the time. Curls are every other day, usually 5 sets of regular curls, and 4 sets of hammer curls. Then Wrist curls, pull ups, skull crushers, tri ext, flys, and shoulder exercises(dont now the name).

For every thing, I try and do it every other day, including weekends, and 5 sets of 10 or 12. Usually like 2 hours a day.

For bench, today I got 185 up a couple times, then 205 once. I think I can do a little more though.
Curls, I can curl 50 two or three times, and thats it. I did 105 for two arm curl today once. wrist curls, I usually do 65 for two hand. Flys I did 35s tdoay, but I could do 4 sets of 20. Pulldowns I do 140 in sets of 12, but I think I can do more for that too, might be time to bump up to 150. Tri ext I do 60, can do 70 but only 6 times. Skull crushers, depends on which part. Between 45-65lbs.
I'm sure I am forgeting some exercise, lol.

The only thing is, when I do fly, my shoulder cracks. I dont know why, every rep almost, my left shoulder cracks... and my elbow cracks during pushups too. One time it cracked during every one so I stopped at 20, lol.
Oh, and all those weights are in pounds not kg, lol.

I'm sure a lot of you weight lifters are better then me though, lol. I just started like 2 months ago in really getting in it. I take glutamine sometimes, and protien sometimes. I just try and eat a lot of protein. 4 eggs for breakfast, but I take out 3 yokes...
