Spin Cycle: My Workout World

In honor of the Spin Cycle by Sprite's Keeper— I have decided to place my spin this weeks assignment of Routine:

When I was in college I began working out on a regular basis. At the time I could work out just after classes and just before dinner. Interestingly this afternoon time (4:00PM) is the ideal time to work out. I also heard that it is the ideal time to take a nap as well, but I tended to ignore that statement. Unfortunately my current work schedule does not allow me to work out at that time, so I choose to work out before work.

When I work out I tend to rotate what exercises I do. In an ideal workout, I would do free-weights on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays— and on Tuesdays and Thursdays I would swim.

For my free-weight exercises I would go one week concentrating on chest and back, then the following week I would concentrate on arms. When I swim I tend to do what I call backs and boards— which means that I would only do back floats and use the kick-board. My wife asked me why I do not do the breast-stroke or the crawl when I swim. I told her that I don't like getting my head wet when I swim… she joked that I should put a plastic bag over my head… "That'll keep the water out" I joked back.

Lately I have not been working out as much, but I am sure that when I get into the routine of going every day during the week I will be able to follow my workout plan and eventually feel more fit.
