So you had a good time then RE? Gee whizz right back into training as well.

3 mile plod today. Day off tomorrow as at caravan but got to get up at 7am to book gym classes for next Monday.

Speedy, just done some back reading and see that you have been to body pump. I love it!  The classes I go to are mixed age/sex/ability and we all get along and have fun whilst working our (fat) butts off.  It is always funny when the 'lumpers' from the weights room join in.  The five rep & preen merchants can't hack it. They usually only come once.  Its all in the timing & technique you know, and that comes with regular practice!

RE the instructor said something about attending a class for technique. It did take me a bit to understand his instructions but luckily a woman next toe kept me right with the weights. I really enjoyed it but got a bit of a sore spot on the back of my neck as I ended up resting the bar there in squats as couldn't hold it up. There are so many classes and it's hard to get on them unless you are up early to book for following week. I want to try them all to see what I like best. Long working days and child mi ding days reduce my options but I will go back to body pump as enjoyed it. What classes do you recommend?

Will someone think of the children....

Missed you RE.

Aim straighter Tippy.

I also do body blast - that is a good all round session, more cardio, less weights, and spin class - on a static bike, good for cardio, calerie burn, works the legs but not good for dodgy knees.

Spin would not suit me knees RE. Booked in for Thai Fit on Tuesday if I can get away from work 15 mins early and Kettlebells on Thursday and am on reserve list for body combat next Saturday. Diet itself is not working but my consultant told me it wouldn't so exercise is the way to go.

Speedy, don't try too many new classes at once.

14/10/2012 at 21:49
Was going to try them to see which I prefer RE. Is that wrong then?

It's chilly out there. Everything is white with frost. Brrr

Home from caravan and it's cold here too.

Cold but dry in Berkshire

Speedy, It is fine to try different classes, but I was trying to suggest not all in the same week!  I also do Body Blast - another good cardio (xalerie burn) & all round workout.

Thanks RE. I understand now. Only booked Boot Camp tomorrow then the gym on Thursday to be shown how to make use of the Kettlebells. Have canx Thai Fit till next Tuesday so as not doing too much as I still need to plod. I did see Body Blast on the class timetable but will wait a bit to try that.

The lily-pad has floated away following a night of absolutely biblical rainfall.
Quite a lot of it appears to have fallen indoors actually
