Just got back from my yearly check up
Found out these check ups have been contracted out, not being done by the marvelous NHS, the staff have lost their jobs with the NHS, but are now with this new company
The same staff will still be doing the scans
My check up revealed mine has gone up from 3.5 to 3.6 now, nothing really to worry about
Now I don't know if there are anyone in these discussions to talk about exercise, but I still use the gym (yes even at 68 there is still room for me there)
Just waned to know about the types of exercise I can carry on doing, I use the rowing machine (30 minutes, fairly hard, 34-36 strokes per minute) then weights,
bench press 80 kilos, for 8-10 reps, 3 sets,
pull downs, wide grip, 45 kilos, 4 sets, 8-10 reps
flyes, 15 kilos, 3 sets, 8-10 reps
then to finish off leg raises, chest high, 3-4 sets, 10-12 reps
I also do pull overs, 25 kilos, 8-10 reps, it really stretches my chest out
Now is this doing me any good or killing me ?
Meanwhile I am happy with going to the gym, just not the time I have to go (6 am) to avoid the trafic
