June 2021 Covid Fitness Diary!

Tuesday, June 1: Just a short and relatively light weights session (lats, back, forearms, sides, and lower back) and also a light treadmill session.

Friday, June 4: One set of 43 push ups at home followed by first home exercise bike session in perhaps three years? And it was quick one at ten minutes.

Saturday, June 5: A fast-tracked weigthts session: calves, hamstrings, chest, traps, shoulders, triceps, weighless squats, leg extensions, lower back, and just the one set of side raises.

Tuesday, June 8:  Back in the gym where I worked my back, lats, traps, forearms, and a little gingerly, some bicep curls.

Wednesday, June 9: Calves, sides, lower back, and an 11-minute masked treadmill session.

Thursday, June 10: A thirty-minute weights session: chest, shoulders, traps, and triceps.

Saturday. June 12:  A rare morning gym sessions: calf raises, hamstring curls, a few weightless squats, a seven-minute treadmill session, leg extensions and presses, lower back, and just the one set of side extensions.

Sunday, June 13: Some more free time today resulted in me walking 20,700 steps/13.9 km.

Monday, June 14: A pretty light and short workout as I really wasn’t in the mood: lats, back, traps, sides, lower back, and calves. Unsurprisingly, no muscle stiffness the next day.

Tuesday, June 15: Another gym session, and I felt lazy beginning my workout, but I ended up completing a pretty intense workout: shoulders, triceps, traps, chest, calves, and a set of side raises. I also walked 11,800 steps/8.08 km.

Thursday, June 17: I walked 12,700 steps/8.18 km

Friday, June 18: I walked 11,000 steps/8.27 km. Obviously not an exact science – Less steps and more distance than yesterday.

Friday, June 25: A pretty intense weights session to mark the end of the semester: calves, hamstrings, thighs, lats, back, traps, and forearms. My right bicep near the elbow is still sore. It’s been sore a while now. Drats.
