Loser = all talk and no action.
Shamed by Adeline who took action and went to Pushmore to get herself tortured, I finally followed suit tonight. Went to Pushmore I did, and got tortured I did. Ain't gonna write much. This was what I was made to do:
Light jog around the block x 2 rounds
3 rounds of these:
Bodyweight squats x 10
Situps x 10
Figure 8 x 10
Pushups x 10
Jumping pullups x 10
Hip flexors 15 seconds each leg
As many sets of these that you can do in 10 minutes:
Jumping pullups x 5
Pushups x 10
Bodyweight squats x 15
I only managed to do 6.5 sets, with the 0.5 consisting of 5 jumping pullups and 10 pushups. Fine, I'll admit it. I am a sissy. Overall, I think Pushmore is a great place where only serious people come for training. You don't see bimbos and jimbos on the phone hogging machines while trying to look cute. Wait, there are no machines at Pushmore. They only use free weights. And I think that is a major plus point. Okay, let me summarize what I like and don't like about Pushmore:
1. Friendly trainers who know what they're talking about
2. Cute guys galore
3. Workout of the day concept - different workout each day, so you won't get bored
4. Time limit for the workouts (like I said, they do know what they're doing)
5. Did I mention the cute guys?
6. No hardselling. I come in for the trial. I finish my workout. I can go home. It's not like commercial gyms where they harrass you until you sign up and be made to shed cash for 24 months. I guess that way they can 'filter' serious applicants and those who aren't.
I don't like
1. ... the fact that the warm-up is a bit too strenuous. By the time I got to the main workout I'm already a bit drained. I think the warmups should be shorter and less intense. A warmup after all, serves only to 'oil the grooves' for the main workout. Okay, maybe this sounds like an excuse, but I think I would've done much better in the main workout if the warmup wasn't so tiring.
2. ... the fact that there were situps in the warmup. If you've read my blog long enough, you'd know I detest this move.
That's it. All in all Pushmore is fabulous. As you can obviously see, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. I think I'm gonna join their introductory classes (there are 3 classes) and shell out RM150 for them. And then I'll decide whether I'll join them as a member.
Time will tell.
Oi Adeline. I've updated my blog. Happy now? Hehehehhehe....
