We’ll come back to that image in a second. First day 4:
- Shoulders, back and biceps
- Lighter weights, higher reps and pyramid sets
- Generally five sets on the big muscles and four sets on the smaller ones
- Fast and furious
I’m a fan of Dwayne Johnson’s positive attitude and training advice. I follow him on Twitter and he says the most important thing about your workout is intensity. So far supersets help with the intensity and make for a 30-40 minute workout.
The college gym:
At the last zoo they charged $50 per month to use the University’s fitness center. This zoo offers FREE access! I worked out there last night and it totally meets my needs. It has a good mixture of free weights, machines and cardio equipment. My only concern is how busy it will get when the students return. Still, to save $500 per year I can put up with a little hassle.
The gym has those nifty elliptical machines that are easy on the back and knees. Since running seems to cause me some lower back pain I’m moving my cardio to the elliptical. This will be day 5 later today.
Now back to that image. In case you need help with Zombies or other survival emergencies there is now an app for that: The U.S. Military Survival Manual for the ios. Look for it in the Apple store!
