(Wasn’t sure where what category to put this in, as no “Fitness” one exist)

Cross Trainer: JTX Fitness Strider X7

Fatburn Preset - Resistance Levels: 2-4-6-8-8-8-8-6-4-2

Good work. I just made it to the gym for first time in ages this morning. Was thinking of getting one of those apps that measure your effort and stuff, and can challenge and encoruge friends. Do you use one? Myzone was the one the gym were punting. Sure thre are other.


#3

Nicely done! :slight_smile:

I currently do not use any apps (Other than my Samsung smart watch) but definitely open to use one.


#4

5km in 15 mins is only 3 mins off the world record for a 5 km run. Your putting in some serious times mate.


#5

Seriously? To be fair if I had fresh air into my lungs I’d probably not last anywhere near as long (sshh you dirty, dirty people) I guess being inside makes a massive difference, plus the lack of actual impact to the ground.

Week 4 Monday,Tuesday, Friday + Saturday

Cardio Preset - Resistance Level: 6-10-6-10-6-10-6-10-6-10

Day 13 - 15 minutes 5.3KM
Day 14 - 15 minutes 5.3KM
Day 15 - 3KM avg 22KPH
Day 16 - 5KM 14:27

From now on I think I’m going to do distance, rather than time. Also one week Fat burn, one week Cardio.


#7

Thats good going man. I do about 20 mins on ctrainer and manage just over a 1km. Only been 4 times though since i started back last weekend. Might try the presets. I just do one pace.


#8

Yeah man, definitely look at what preset modes it has. If I didn’t have a guide, I wouldn’t have a clue, just says P1 - P7 and then the levels.


#9

First time I tried a preset it asked for my heart rate, but the sensors didnt seem to work. So I gave up. Problem with big gyms, the equipment gets hammered.

Week 5 Mon-Fri

FatBurn Preset.

Day 17 - 5KM 12:16
Day 18 - 8KM 22:37
Day 19 - 5KM 12:59
Day 20 - 8KM 22:04
Day 21 - 5KM 12:59

Day 21 I switched from using my Samsung Gear 3 and started using a FitBit Charge 2. I guess being a dedicated fitness tracker does help a lot. The Gear 3 is a great watch and has some neat fitness features, but lacks in a few areas.

I have also started using MyFitnessPal to log food/water/weight/goals which syncs over to FitBit and exercises/steps calories and sleep sync to MFP

Changed the title to be fitness in general… Spent some money today :see_no_evil:

Nokia Body+ Body Composition Wi-Fi Scale - £69.99

Full body composition analysis: Monitors weight (kg, lb., st lb.), body fat & water percentage, plus muscle & bone mass

NutriBullet Pro 900 9-Piece Set - £84.99

The Nutribullet Pro 900 completely breaks down your food, liquefying and mixing the essential nutrition you need. It bursts open seeds, cracks through stems and shreds tough skins to get the most out of your favourite fruits and vegetables.

Quite a lot of money for what they are… But it’ll surely help in the long run as I am fully committed to getting my body to a near peak performance as possible, just in case the results are not what I want to hear, If my body is going to end up shutting itself down, I want to be in damn good shape to start with.


#12

I wonder about things like that, how the fuck does a scale figure out your body fat %…?


#13

Something about sending a small electrical pulse.


#14

I think it’s done by electrical resistance. A small current is sent through you and the time it takes is how it’s calculated. Not sure how accurate it is but it’ll be probably good enough.
Enjoy using your nutribullet like a normal person and make cocktails

I have a kettle-bell ordered for collection (should be ready today) to get started on some strength training.
