Workout #17 (Arms & shoulders)

Jen and Jason were kind enough to let me use their gym, New York Sports Club, this morning and we all went into work out about an hour after eating breakfast. The amenities of their gym (lockers, towels, etc.) are nicer than my gym but I didn’t like the layout of the workout rooms: many small rooms scattered over several floors. Still, that didn’t prevent me from getting in a good upper body strength workout.

This workout officially marks my completion of 3 consecutive weeks of workouts. Working out 6 out of every 7 days, should be 18 workouts over the course of 3 weeks. I managed to get in 17. I missed one workout, but I had a good excuse. For the last 2 weeks, I’ve gone to the gym every day except Sundays, which is my free day.

I feel pretty good about it, and I think I am finally starting to notice some changes in the way I look (and in the way some of my clothes fit).
