The most interesting thing I saw on the bike ride? A middle aged man riding a unicycle, juggling bright orange juggling pins.

Also, less volume and less sets but also less soreness and no exhaustion. Finding a balance.
*P. S.: This is minus the 2nd half of my workout which will be at the gym. I’ve gotten used to splitting my workouts in half (morning session, afternoon session) due to accompanying my mom to the gym, to make sure she goes and does something there. This program has a foundational phase that has 21 sets for the whole body done 2-3 times a week plus small trigger sessions in between that feel like mini-HIIT workouts. After a month I’ll move onto a phase with less reps, more sets, and heavier weights.
Workout analysis of the past week
I’ve found that it’s been hard to track resistance training with a heart rate monitor. I forget to put it on and I just rush to the gym. It’s because I don’t sweat as much and my heart stays comfortable the whole time I’m weight lifting. So I downloaded a weight lift tracker and it does an “analysis” of everything I did over a period of time. Since I’ve only had this tracker for a week, here’s a week’s progress below.
It might look like I don’t work out my arms or butt that much. But some of these exercises work out multiple body parts. This week, I did want to focus on leg work. And it’s crazy to see that I lifted 39,076 pounds in a week.
Workouts in the last month
Not including the climbing days and any walking/hiking. Also, I went to the Boston area to tour the climbing gyms in that area and those weren’t included either, but I’ll include a picture that captures what physical activity I did.

Workouts since May 4
I’ve been swamped at work hence the relative silence here. The past 2 weeks I’ve been trying to use heavier weights. Not included are the super long walks at festivals, trails, and parks. Also the weather is getting better so I’m using a lot of time gardening, and not going to the climbing gym as much. I am moving a lot of 40 lb. bags of soil and mulch, though. My goals have been to get at least 4 days/week exercise if not the usual 5.
More workout videos I use
I’ve been heading over to Sydney Cummings‘ YouTube for her workouts – they are mostly the right intensity for me and/or she offers alternative exercises that is more comfortable for me. Her strength workouts get my heart rate pumping! But here is a selection of my favorite workouts.

The workout videos I use
I workout based on my heart rate. That is, I watch my heart rate so that it doesn’t go beyond approximately 145-155 bpm, and when it’s close to that, I rest until it slows down. This way, I prevent asthma attacks yet still get sweaty. Some days, I feel like I can do more, and some days, less… some days, I just feel tired or sore or burnt out, so I go easier. In any case, I have to do mostly low impact movements (no jumping) to prevent asthma attacks. Just so you know, low impact doesn’t mean easy! If there’s jumping in a workout, I just take the jumps out. Here are a selection of workout videos I use on my full body days.
