Thanks to AsiaPundits and John Twitch for this opportunity to share some of my experiences with Korean cults.
Wednesday, October 2: October began a day late with one of the hardest weights session I've ever completed: legs (presses, free squates, hamstings, and calves), back, lats, traps, biceps, and lower back. Two days later and my muscles are still in a state of pained shock.
Friday, October 4: A solide pre-Korean class workout: chest, shoulders, abs, and sides.
Saturday, October 5: Lats, calves, and lower back (the only body parts not hurting) and a quick 1.6 kilometer sprint:
Monday, October 7: A satisfactory three-kilometer sprint in well under 15 minutes:
Sunday, September 1: September's fitness project started right on time on the very first day of the month with an intense core (lower abs, lower back, and sides) and calves workout. And that felt good. I love that lower back tiredness that results in keeping your back straight whilst walking, a difficult task requiring intense concentration.
Monday, September 2: First day of classes for the fall semester (my second at Sookmyung), yet I still found time to exercise in the form of a 1.5-kilometer sprint followed by a legs workout and some skipping:
August started poorly fitness wise but great music/guitar wise with a trip to Japan to see Steve Vai in Tokyo and Yokohama. And then illness in the form of a severe common cold struck me my last day in Japan, resulting in a further week of exceriselessness. By the time I returned to the gym, the month was almost half over...
Tuesday, August 13: Legs, abs, and sides, and after a two week break coupled with the heat, I have to say that almost killed me.
Wednesday, August 14: Chest, shoulders, triceps, and a 1.5 run which again almost killed me.
Friday, August 16: Back biceps, lower back, traps, lats, sides, and another sprint (I think spring is the right word).
Monday, July 1: July started well fitness wise with a massive chest, shoulders, triceps, calves, and sides weights session. I really am getting stronger and stonger and stronger.
Wednesday, July 3: Legs and abs today. Lots of sets of leg extensions with little rest between sets. About time I worked my skinny legs harder.
Thursday, July 4: A lightening fast 2 kilometer spring to mark the 4th of July. Shorter faster cardio workouts are the plan for the immediate future:
Friday, July 5: My usual back workout: back, traps, lats, and biceps.
Monday, July 8: Chest, shoulders, triceps, and a 1.5 kilometer sprint:
Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake. I'm really glad I bought that acoustic guitar. I love my Ibanez Steve Vai guitar, but there's somethng so natural and pure about the sound of an acoustic.
Just a little piano and guitar practice, and unfortunately I don't think I'll get around to a perfect version. Not that I didn't enjoy playing it; it's just 3 months of my life playing the one tune is enough:
Saturday, June 1: Back in the gym for the first time in a week, and what a crazy week it was, for a much-needed cardio workoout number 571:
Thursday, May 2: May's fitness campaign began with an evening weights session (back, biceps, traps, lats, lower back, sides, and calves) followed by an uphill treadmill trek which concluded with a little sprint:
