Weight Loss: Gym Day 1

I was given my gym programme yesterday and there was quite a lot in it so I split it into 2 so that I would do cardio and resistance one day and then cardio and strength/core the next. So today was a cardio and resistance day, but I still couldn’t fit all the exercises into my gym session. I’m going during my lunch break which is only an hour and I have to factor in getting dressed at the start and then showered and dressed at the end. So it looks like I might have to split the whole lot into 3 different sessions.

I also had trouble on the machine which is for seated crunches. I did try it out yesterday and it felt ok, but today I just couldn’t get comfortable and it just didn’t feel right, it felt too hard. I know it’s supposed to be hard but I honestly felt there was something wrong with my form so I stopped after about 5 or 6 as I didn’t want to risk it.

All in all I enjoyed the variety which was good and I’m keen to get a new plan of action going for tomorrow, or perhaps Friday. I’m not sure how often I should be having full rest days, or whether I can sort the programme to be working different groups for 5 days and then rest at the weekend.
