Thanks! I'm amazed I actually bought stuff woohoo :D Nearly at the end of my pre-holiday shopping spree :roll:

Day 11 (Monday 5th Feb)

Warm up: Treadmill, 20 mins (12% incline, 7.6km/hr)

Antagonistic Supersets:
*Supersets are just going from one piece of equipment to the other, without a rest in between. Antagonistic supersets is going between excercises that work opposite muscles, eg, chest/back, bicep/tricep, quads/hamstrings, etc. Hope this makes sense....
Superset #1 (4 rounds)
Chest - pec deck, 20kgs, 10 reps
Back - seated cable row, 32kgs, 10 reps
Superset #2 (4 rounds)
Quads - leg extensions, 30kgs, 12 reps
Hamstrings - leg curls, 30kgs, 12 reps
Calves - standing calf raises, 30kgs, 12 reps

Maximal Interval Training:
Bike - 30 secs work (level 9) to 30 secs rest (level 4), 10 mins

Cool down: Stepmill, 120 steps/min, 25 mins

That's only half of the set excercises. I have to split them between today and tomorrow as I don't have that much time before work :(

Gotta walk to the Holden place to put my car in for a service (30min return)... please don't let it be too hot!! And might walk to the solarium tonight, depending on heat (30 mins return as well).

Biceps - incline dumbell curls, 6kg, 12 reps
Triceps - bar dips, 10 reps
Superset #4 (3 rounds)
Shoulders - lateral dumbell raises, 4kg, 12 reps
Abs - ab machine, 32.5kg, 15 reps

Have to walk to Holden AGAIN today as they didn't have the part they needed yesterday :x I'll extend my walk a bit and make it a 45 or 50 min return.. think I need it!

AND THAT'S IT :D Finished off Round 1. It has been a bit of fun anyway lol. I'll have a go of Round 2 (another 12 days, same basic idea) starting tomorrow, after a good night's sleep tonight! (It could happen :( )
