    Default Listen to this freakos, Batman has joined a gym.

    I'm not getting any younger and I've not been in a gym since I was 17/18 and I was never serious about it then.

    I thought that I might give it a go and see how I get on before I lose my foot to diabetes or some shit like that.

    I'm only looking to do cardio at the moment, get a bit of this timber off me, I could do with losing a few stones, all the Stella, Pizza and curry is catching up with me.

    Another reason I'm doing it is because I rarely do fucking anything these days, at least this gets me out and about even if just for a short period of time.

    Wish me luck, knowing me I'll probably give myself a fucking heart attack running for the bus before I even get there.

    Good for you, Batman. You know it is the right thing to do. You love reading, so maybe you could listen to audio books to keep you occupied as it can be a bit boring. Start slowish and build your way into it. I hurt after being in there, but I also feel like I have done something. It's well worth it.

    I love my music and my books in equal measure so I'll just be sticking Spotify on whilst I'm in there.

    Bit of a waste of time today though, 2 minutes after getting in there and my phone wouldn't stop going, I checked it and my sister has been in a minor car accident, as I work in insurance I had to tell her what to do, every time I got going my phone would go again, I knocked it on the head after 20 minutes.

    I'll go again tomorrow or Saturday. I'm aiming for 3 times a week at the minute.

    Batman that is wonderful. You pump that iron. Weight resistance is the key. Good job. Go light on cardio.

    First few weeks, just make sure you go. Doesn't need to be a lot. If you are as rusty as me, just a little will bring about enough for a workout. I do 25 minutes on the weights each day and then go for a brisk walk up the hill and around the farms. Sweated buckets today.

    Yeah I'm definitely going to keep going regularly, I'm off work this week so it's not been any bother, I'm half tempted to go again tomorrow.

    My problem is that other than an exercise bike I've done zero exercise for fucking years so anything other than that and I'm pissing sweat like a stuck pig.

    I'm thinking of giving that C25K thing a bash on the treadmill, I reckon I'd have to take that pretty damn slowly though.

    Make sure you enjoy it and get some satisfaction out of each session. Otherwise you will quit when it gets too hard. Take small steps each time and record it in a journal.

    Don't worry Brock, you are a freak in most aspects of life but everyone keeps a shit journal.

    My last entry was just this morning, it read:

    09:13am - just honked out a dirt snake in the disabled toilets of the library, no measuring equipment available but I would estimate 15cm long, weight unknown but it felt pretty dense on its way out and judging by the splashback it was never intending on being a floater...must remember to walk out of here with a limp so people think I'm disabled.

    Anyway back on topic...so yeah I joined a gym

    Small weight high repetitions if you're coming in after yrs, get your wind back and detox the mind. I try..when I try ..to go mid day that way I have to go back to work and head straight home after a nonstop day by evening. Hardest part is working a straight day then leveling out..and basically going to another 'job' right off . Oh and no beer. That's the feckin kicker there.

    Yeah that aint gunna really work for me...im currently on my 10th can...saying that I am on me holibobs and it's better to drink and go to the gym than just drink I reckon.

    If I stick it out and actually get to the point that I wanna start seeing results then I may reconsider my drinking habits but at present I just think that doing it is better than not doing it.

    More for my mental health than my physical if I'm being honest

    Best to keep everyone safe from errand barbells and stick to the current work out regiment at a 'home gym'. Curling a can or bottle is a very underrated type of workout which overtime can lead to significant expansion of both body and mind!

    I would think since you are doing something healthy you can even things off by drinking more and all things will even out

    @Batman

    9:15 a.m. pushed really hard and then ***BLAM!*** the spinach you ate really shot out and you felt it take out the steak you ate, it sort of hooked into it and dragged it out.

    Persistence is the key; I started Jiu Jitsu at 36 with a bunch of young angry lions. The first 5 months have been the worst of my life, health wise, now I am about to turn 40 and I would say that I am somewhere in the middle of the pack but still can keep up with the bests (those around my level, that is). Just accept pain as the cruelest and most successful of teachers. Go get it, bud.
