Thought I'd bump this thread. I lift weights 5 times a week, usually before my morning session in my home gym. Been doing so for about 10 months now. Used to weigh 270lbs, now down to a cool 198. Got the girls going nuts.
Anyone else lift before their morning session? I wake up at 5:30AM everyday for it. Takes some getting used to, but it is the GOAT time to work out. Test is always higher in the AM, so my workouts are beast-like.
I am up before 4 every day and so some yoga and pushups, just to get the blood flowing.
Later in the morning I do a half hour to an hour of walking. Walking is my core exercise.
I have a very good uphill walk that I do about once a week. It has one pitch of about 100 M that is about a 20% grade. I like to sprint that one. If I am feeling a lot of pep I will do a set of sprints on that section, and maybe a couple of other pitches on the route to the top of the hill. Whole walk takes about three hours, ending with a soak at hot springs.
I prefer the short sprints to jogging.
I also do sprints on the stairmaster in preparation for weight training.
I am in the gym about two or three times a week working out on machines and barbells. My number one goal at this point in the training, since I am now a senior, is to not get injured. So I am taking it slow and steady. Usually I do a set of
yoga and meditation at the gym before weightraining.
