    Do you keep any kind of journal? I maintain three (duplicates but with different feedback from the different users on each different site, so it's a good thing) as well as my pen and paper journal that I carry to the gym.

    I'm currently doing three weight sessions a week, all whole body. It's very low volume which is supposed to be especially good for recovery.

    What do you typically do for cardio?

    Oh, yeah, the one site actually has no fucking feedback at all. I maintain it on MMI Forum's training journal area simply because I'm the only person to post to that ghost town.

    I mainly hit the elliptical trainer and the treadmill (incline walk) for cardio at the moment.

    I keep a training log of the weights and reps, but not a journal per se.

    You don't think that the whole body in one workout is too much?

    Sorry, I got carried away here.

    No, not when I'm only doing a limited number of sets. Plus it's a different workout each day. Monday's exercises hit all the bodyparts and so does Wednesday's and Friday's however in a different way or using different exercises.

    The one treadmill I use has "interval" and that's a lot of fun - FreeMotion - as it automatically runs from low incline to steeper and back to low again. Cool.

    And your training log sounds basically the same as what I record.

    I think you can go way harder if you split the body up a bit. I just wouldn't have the energy to do the whole body justice.

    Go back a page or two and you can see that it's really not all that much. Still, it does work the system and I am gaining strength.

    I enjoyed a four-on, one-off routine that I pulled from CEO Muscle, a book by Jay Cutler, but I'm sticking with the low volume for a bit.

    Not the way I do cardio. I'm the meandering along the path cardio enthusiast. Steady State Cardio at 130 beats per minute on the ol' ticker.

    Dave Palumbo recommends this lazy man's cardio. I love it. At 130 bpm I still work up a great sweat and ease my "I sit at this damn computer 24/7" guilt at the same time.

    Elliptical trainer and walk on the treadmill at an incline as usual.

    Do you mean you listen to podcasts?

    I hate the elliptical. Just not coordinated enough or something. HATE IT!

    The FreeMotion treadmill has an automatic setting that changes the incline over the course of your workout. Pretty cool. It's like walking a path on a hill with steep grades and then flat spots, etc.

    re podcasts, GX says he has all of NBR on an ipod, but I don't have one of those. No, I mean that I read the forums on my BlackBerry. It has a 2" x 1.5" screen and I can access the Internet to read while I pedal or walk.

    Gold's also has Life Fitness treadmills with TV monitors attached and closed-captioning.

    And they've got the wall-mounted big screens. Watched some "I Survived a Japanese Game Show" tonight.

    What's your gym like?

    My gym has screens on the cardio equipment. The channels are generally pretty suckful, though. I listen to all sorts of podcasts.

    I can't believe you surf the forums during cardio! Excellent.

    I haven't owned a TV for six years this month, so watching TV during cardio is a novelty for me. Every episode is "new."

    You have an ipod or a zune? I don't even know what the things are called, honestly. I'd probably still have an 8-track player if cassettes hadn't eaten that up.

    I own an ipod. One of my best investments, for sure. I wouldn't be without a TV. The good shows are well worth watching. Obviously good shows are reasonably scarce, but there are enough to justify owning a TV in my opinion.
