Hi I'm New

Postby The Phantom » Mon Feb 09, 2009 11:53 pm

Hello

I'm new here and so far have loved reading about everyone's stories. Well here's my story.

I have been overweight for most of my life. When I was about 14 I did lose about 7-8 kilograms and was feeling very fit and energetic. I had to lose this weight because I was asthmatic. However though I slowly put the weight back on and enough is enough. It is time to lose the excess baggage.

PROFILE


Age: 17
censored: Male
Height: 182cm
Weight: 106.2 Kg (was 106.9 Kg)
Waistline: 109 cm

EXERCISE REGIME

Monday Morning: Dumbbell Weights Program

My Trainer has given me a weights program to do in sections. Each section consists of 3 sets lifting 3 kg weights. I am know in my 5th week of doing the weights program. I will list the reps that I started out doing and what I am doing know in brackets next to each exercise.

This consists of
- Dumbbell Side Raises (10) (12)
- Dumbbell Front Raises (10) (12)
- Dumbbell Press's (10) (12)

The above exercises are done at the start of the routine because I had shoulder problems. So this is done to strengthen the shoulders and also to warm them up.

- Upright Rowing (10) (20)
- One Arm Rowing (10) (20)

- Lunges (10) (14)
- Side Bends (10) (20)

- Dumbbell Curls (10) (20)
- Dumbbell Triceps (10) (20)

Cheers Alexandra, unfortunately over the last week and a bit I have been having an increasing pain in my left shoulder. I had this before I started my dumbbell program. I sought the advice of a personal trainer who used to own a gym and now's what he is talking about. He has been in the business for ages and trained Drew Banfield for a couple of years. He said that the 3 joints in my shoulder needed strengthening and he put me on a program using dumbbells. For the first 4 and a half weeks my shoulders really started to feel better and I could notice little changes in the shape of my biceps. They weren't massive changes but they were enough for me to see. But over the last week and a half the pain has come back and worse than it was before. So I have stopped doing the dumbbells since Thursday and am awaiting to see my trainer to see what he recommends for me to do. However though I am still able to do my cardio so its not all that bad :D
