Wednesday, April 1: The month started well with a cardio session followed by a forearms, calves, and lower back workout:
Thursday, April 2: A return to the campus gym for a quick legs and sides workout between class and a meeting with students.
Friday, April 3: A very late (and fast) traps, back, and biceps workout. I arrived at the gym after 10 p.m., so I went crazy for a good thirty minutes with the weights (and machines) as the clock was ticking. My gym closes at 11 p.m.
Saturday, April 4: A 32-minute cardio session in the evening before going out for the evening:
Sunday, April 5: A quick but serious legs workout which consisted of leg extensions, leg presses, hamstring curls, and some calf raises.
Monday, April 6: Only time for a chest and shoulders workout today. Considering I was up till 5:20 am recording a podcast, that’s not a bad effort!
Tuesday, April 7: Another short workout due to my perpetual busyness. I had a cardio workout in mind, but changed my mind when I realized I had left my water bottle at home. Why my gym doesn’t sell bottled water is a complete mystery to me. Tonight’s workout consisted of triceps, traps, and forearms.
Wednesday, April 8: Just a cardio workout to clear my mind temporarily of the 7-page interview I need to finish tonight:
Thursday, April 9: Another late night heavy workout: back, biceps, lats, and biceps.
Saturday, April 11: A 30-minute cardio session that ended with a bit of a sprint:
Sunday, April 12: A solid 25-minute leg workout after a late brunch.
Monday, April 13: A massive chest, shoulders, triceps, and traps workout late at night after an amazing afternoon power nap.
Tuesday, April 14: Just cardio tonight on a night I didn’t actually want to be in the gym:
Wednesday, April 15: Back to the campus gym ahead of a productive evening office session: back, lats, biceps, sides, calves, and lower back.
Thursday, April 16: A shorter, faster cardio workout today due to extreme busyness:
Saturday, April 18: After a day off yesterday, I renewed my membership for another 6 months and celebrated the occasion with a massive chest, shoulders, triceps, and traps workout.
Sunday, April 19: A 50-minute evening workout of my smaller muscles: forearms, abs (OK my abs are pretty big), lower abs, sides, and calves.
Monday, April 20: A shorter, faster run in my old gym. Yes, I have two gym memberships.
Tuesday, April 21: A massive back, lats, biceps, and lower back workout. That was hardest back workout in a good while… maybe forever. I returned home to a bit of a medical emergency. I’m not entirely sure how it happened – I think a sock thread somehow got jammed against my toe. The result was a rather long and deep cut that almost (and perhaps should have) resulted in a late-night hospital visit.
Wednesday, April 22: A legs workout sans cardio as I’m not keen in putting my cut toe into a sweaty show for a while.
Friday, April 24: A long chest, shoulders, triceps, and traps workout. Things started out lightly due to a wee cold and a bit of a headache, but I stayed in the gym longer and ended up doing a ton of sets.
Saturday, April 25: Back day again! Back, lats, biceps, and lower back. Unfortunately, tomorrow is the last Sunday of the month, so my gym is closed. Bad gym! Tomorrow will be all about getting a head start on the second half of the semester.
Monday, April 27: A ginger treadmill session. Not too long as I wasn’t sure how my not-quite healed toe was going:
Thursday, April 30: I guess no exercise that day. I just revisited this thread in July 2018 and noticed I had written nothing besides the day and date.
