Saturday, August 2: August’s fitness campaign began with a bang with a 2-hour workout: back, biceps, traps, lats, lower back, calves (340 reps), some stretching, and 30 kilometers on one of the gym’s seated exercise bikes. That will be my cardio machine of choice until my slightly strained right calf muscle heals. It’s strange that calf raises don’t seem to work the part of the muscle (outer side) that is ever so slightly strained at present.
Sunday, August 3: Just a whole lot of walking if that counts.
Monday, August 4: Another long seated exercise bike cardio session followed by a sides workout:
Tuesday, August 5: Legs, abs, and as a result of that legs workout, a shorter seated exercise bike session:
Monday, August 11: My regular back workout: back, biceps, lats, and traps.
Wednesday, August 13: Just time for a 30-minute chest, shoulders, and triceps workout.

Monday August 25: I only had time for a 30-minute workout today, but I think I used the time well with an intense chest, shoulders, triceps, and traps workout. And I renewed my gym membership for another year.
Tuesday, August 26: Core and cardio:
