Fitness Check #6

Three months after giving birth to my second child I made a fitness check. Here are the results:

Weight: 52,4 kg
BMI: 20,5

body fat: 22,8% = 12 kg
(Okt 2016: body fat: 18,7% = 9,5kg))
(Jan 2016: 19,6% = 9,9 kg (-1,1 kg))

right leg fat: 3,1 kg
(Okt 2016: right leg fat: 2,7 kg (+0,1 kg))
(Jan 2016: 2,6 kg (-0,2 kg))

right leg muscle: 6,3 kg
(Okt 2016: right leg muscle: 6,4 kg (the same))
(Jan 2016: 6,4 kg (same))

left leg fat: 3,1 kg
(Okt 2016: left leg fat: 2,7 kg (+0,1 kg))
(Jan 2016: 2,6 kg (-0,2 kg))

left leg muscle: 6,4 kg
(Okt 2016: left leg muscle: 6,2 kg (same))
(Jan 2016: 6,2 kg (+0,1 kg))

right arm fat: 0,5 kg
(Okt 2016: right arm fat: 0,4 kg (same))
(Jan 2016: 0,4 kg (-0,1 kg))

right arm muscle: 1,9 kg
(Okt 2016: right arm muscle: 1,9 kg (+0,1 kg))
(Jan 2016: 1,8 kg (same))

left arm fat: 0,5 kg
(Okt 2016: left arm fat: 0,4 kg (same))
(Jan 2016: 0,4 kg (-0,1 kg))

left arm muscle: 1,8 kg
(Okt 2016: left arm muscle: 1,8 kg (same))
(Jan 2016: 1,8 kg (+0,1 kg))

carcass fat: 4,9 kg
(Okt 2016: carcass fat: 3,3 kg (-0,5 kg))
(Jan 2016: 3,8 kg (-0,7 kg))

carcass muscle: 22,4 kg
(Okt 2016: carcass muscle: 22,9 kg (+ 0,7 kg))
(Jan 2016: 22,2 kg (+0,2 kg))

It’s quite similar to after my first pregnancy fitness check, that was done in December 2015.
I feel so big it’s unbelievable. I can’t quit eating sweets which sucks. It’s so hot here that we’ll eat ice-cream for lunch (sometimes). My belly is huge. I try to go to the gym 2-3 times a week, hope it works out. We’ll see how things work out.

Fitness Check #5

My body fat & muscle measured Okt 21st 2016 vs. Jan 29th 2016 (and Dec 2nd 2015):

  • body fat: 18,7% = 9,5kg
    (Jan 2016: 19,6% = 9,9 kg (-1,1 kg))
  • right leg fat: 2,7 kg (+0,1 kg)
    (Jan 2016: 2,6 kg (-0,2 kg))
  • right leg muscle: 6,4 kg (the same – I can hardly believe after all those squats)
    (Jan 2016: 6,4 kg (same))
  • left leg fat: 2,7 kg (+0,1 kg)
    (Jan 2016: 2,6 kg (-0,2 kg))
  • left leg muscle: 6,2 kg (same)
    (Jan 2016: 6,2 kg (+0,1 kg))
  • right arm fat: 0,4 kg (same)
    (Jan 2016: 0,4 kg (-0,1 kg))
  • right arm muscle: 1,9 kg (+0,1 kg)
    (Jan 2016: 1,8 kg (same))
  • left arm fat: 0,4 kg (same)
    (Jan 2016: 0,4 kg (-0,1 kg))
  • left arm muscle: 1,8 kg (same)
    (Jan 2016: 1,8 kg (+0,1 kg))
  • carcass fat: 3,3 kg (-0,5 kg)
    (Jan 2016: 3,8 kg (-0,7 kg))
  • carcass muscle: 22,9 kg (+ 0,7 kg)
    (Jan 2016: 22,2 kg (+0,2 kg))

My BMI at the moment is 19,8.

So, to sum up, I started with Power Endurance (Foundation) for a few weeks, then went on to Hypertrophy and switched between those two. In September 2016 I made 5-6 weeks of maximum strength (Firming) and now I’m back to Hypertrophy.

In ten months of going to the gym 2-3 times a week following changes happened:

  • my weight always stayed pretty much the same (it’s not my goal to lose, luckily)
  • I went from 21,4 % body fat to 18,7 %
  • I went from 1210 kcal a day to 1230 kcal a day
  • I went from 40,2 kg muscle to 41,3 kg muscle
  • I hardly gained muscle in my arms and legs
  • I gained almost 1kg of muscle in my back and abs
  • I lost 1,2 kg of fat in my back and abs

In those ten months I didn’t control my eating habits (too much sweets) and hardly made endurance. All in all I’m happy with the results, I didn’t try so hard (meaning, I go to the gym twice a week and not three times, I eat a lot, I hardly do endurance). I can’t imagine I didn’t gain muscles in my legs, not sure what to think about that result. And also my arms after all those biceps curls etc. I plan on going jogging more during my next Foundation phase.

What’s your main goal you’re doing sports?

Fitness Check #2

Half year after my Fitness check #1

Yesterday I had my second fitness-check, which means:

  1. resting ECG (Cardio Scan)
  2. body fat measuring
  3. BMI measuring
  4. biking until a heart rate of 150

It all took about one hour. Here my results

  1. resting ECG

    My heart beat was at 63, which is good.
    My fit level with that rate was at 3, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest. I went one point up from last time!
  2. body fat measuring
    Body fat: 21,0% It went up 3,2% – 2kg… I also gained 2kg of body weight, hmm, maybe I’m not building muslce but fat ;). Last time it was 16,8% which I thought was a little too less and I didn’t really believe in the fat-measuring machine. 21% sounds better for a woman my age 😀
  3. BMI measuring
    19,5
  4. biking until a heart rate of 150 – pwc-test
    I was in the area between “very good” and “good”. I warmed up five minutes, then had to bike at the same speed for one or two minutes with increasing inclination until I reached a heart rate of 150. Then cool down and my trainer wrote down my heart rate after one minute, after three and after five. Then some calculations followed and my result was 1,71 watt/kg.

Trainingsplan #1

My first weight trainingsplan goes from November 1st to December 12th 2013. I slowly, slowly increase on weight, yet I have to keep in mind that 15 repetitions is quite a lot! My trainer knows I want to gain muscle so I hope my next plans will slowly go from less weight / more repetitions to more weight / less repetitions.
Currently (I still do the strength circuit as well):

  1. Butterfly: 2 x 15, 10 kg
  2. Pulley sitting: 2 x 15, 15 kg
  3. Pulley standing: 2 x 15, 8 kg
  4. Bizeps pulley: 2 x 15, 5 – 7,5 kg
  5. Trizeps pulley: 2 x 15, 5 – 7,5 kg
  6. Calves with dumbbells: 2 x 15, 8 kg
  7. Adductor: 2 x 15, 30 kg
  8. Abductor: 2 x 15, 30 kg
  9. TRX crunch: 2 x 15
  10. Crunch sideways: 2 x 15
  11. Total Abdomen: 2 x 15, 27,5 – 30 kg

It’s been 6 months since I joined the gym – wow! I’m happy to say that I’ve been to the gym very regularly. October was the only month I didn’t go a lot due to business-projects and not being in town, but other than that there are hardly any gaps. My gym days are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and either Saturday or Sunday (or both, if I don’t go on Friday).

There’s one big problem I’m facing though – I eat a bunch of sweets every evening. I, as a certified nutritionist, should know a lot better. I do know, I just can’t resist. I know I shouldn’t even buy that crap. I don’t know for how longs it’s been going (my sugar addiction) but I’m guessing since September. I buy too much sweets and can’t stop eating them, which means an additional 500-1000 calories (whoa!!) every evening through sweets. 🙁
bodyfat
It’s amazing I only have 17% body-fat, I can’t even imagine that the machine is right… My belly, if I don’t flex it after I have eaten, looks like I’m pregnant. It’s a big ball. Also in the mornings it’s a little too big for my taste, and I blame the sweets.
Ok, so, my next goal is to get those sweets out of my daily life. I eat healthy every day so I’m annoying myself that after the gym, after the shower, after dinner, on the couch, I walk into the kitchen and look for which yummy sweets I can eat. And it’s not only one piece of chocolate, no, it’s the whole bar of chocolate! Sigh, this will be hard…
