September 2020 Fitness Diary!

Tuesday, Sept. 1: With gyms in Seoul closed for the week, I did a quick 16-minute workout at home: push-ups, shoulders, a little triceps, traps, weightless squats, some sit-ups, and calf raises. Later in the evening, I did some more sit-ups and calf raises.

Wednesday, Sept. 2: Another short home workout: sides, lower back, traps, upper back, and biceps.

Thursday, Sept. 3: A long evening walk of 12.4 km/17,100 steps.

Sunday, Sept. 6: More walking: 9.5 km/14,400 steps.

Monday, Sept. 7: Another home workout, this one a little more focused and intense: calve raises, weightless squats, sit-ups, sides, and lower back. Then after a reading break: push-ups, shoulders, traps, and my first triceps workout with exercise bands courtesy of Su-bin.

Tuesday, Sept. 8: A little more exercise with my new exercise bands: biceps and back.

Wednesday, Sept. 9: An evening walk of 13.8 km/19,100 steps.

Thursday, Sept. 10: Just a little exercise today: one set of 47 push-ups, a few shoulder raises, and a 4.8 km/6,800 step walk.

Friday, Sept. 11: A pretty serious 45-minute home workout at night: calves, weightless squats, abs, sides, lower back, traps, biceps, lats, and back. And during the day, I walked 5.2 km/7,400 steps.

Sunday, Sept. 13: Some push-ups and shoulder exercised both yesterday and today, plus I walked 13.8 km/20,300 steps today. In other news, gyms reopen tomorrow after a 2-week closure. Excited!

Monday, Sept. 14: My gym is open again, at least it should be – I didn’t make it. Instead I walked 9 km/12,500 steps, and did some tricep exercises at home, plus some very late rear shoulder exercises just before bed.

Tuesday, Sept. 15: I did some push-ups and shoulder exercises at home throughout the day, and in the evening I walked 12.6 km/16,700 steps.

Wednesday, Sept. 16: Back in the gym for the first time in 2.5 weeks. It was good to be back, and that’s what I worked on (my back): traps, back, lats, biceps, and forearms. All up, the session was about 40 minutes long.

Friday, Sept. 18: Another 40-minute gym session: chest, shoulders, triceps, weightless squats, leg extensions, and hamstring curls.

Saturday, Sept. 19: Another gym session just before it closed at 7 pm: calves and core, again about 40 minutes.

Monday, Sept. 21: Another 40-minute weights session that was almost entirely all back and biceps: lats, back, biceps, traps, lower back, and one set of side raises and one set of about 40 weightless squats.

Tuesday, Sept. 22: Home exercises throughout the day and evening: push-ups, shoulders, and triceps.

Wednesday, Sept. 23: Just calves at home.

Friday, Sept. 25: About an hour of weights: traps, lats, back, biceps, weightless squats, leg extensions, hamstring curls, forearms, and about 230 crunches. Then a few days off followed, and I regret that.

Tuesday, Sept. 29: I walked 15.5 km/21,400 steps.

Wednesday, Sept. 30: I started the day with two sets of push-ups (45/15) and a few shoulder raises. I’ll do more later. I did another two sets later (36/36) and then I did shoulders, triceps, and calves at home. I was pretty satisfied with that home workout. And that’s it for September 2020.
