Hey, so this is Spencer here. The person who is behind the camera in many of the videos on here. I have been used to working out regularly throughout high school due to my involvement in the water polo and swimming teams at school. In 3 years, I whipped my weak 8th grade body into a water-pounding machine. I have been pretty bogged down lately due to IB exams and all of the other Senior year related business, so I’ve digressed phyisically.

I miss that hot bod.

SO. I have now adhered to the following workout regime, taken from my water polo practices:

  • 3 x 75 crunches
  • 2 x 60 supermans
  • 2 x 50 obliques (ea. side)
  • 3 x 25 push-ups
  • 50 elbow-know crunches
  • 1 or2 minutes of bridges
  • 2 x 25 chair dips

This may not be the most efficient workout schedule, but it is effective for me. I don’t have a workout ball nor any weights nor pull-up bars, so this truely is the best plan.

I plan to do this workout 3 times a week. If things get easier, I have some 3lb and 5lb weights I can grab onto to increase the difficulty.

Yet, this workout is not the entire story. It is merely in addition to my true goal.

Recently, I was talking to my dad about his experiences in high school. It surprised me to find out that he was an avid bicyclist, riding several hundred miles each month. He said to me that he was in such good shape that he could ride all the way from his hometown (Stockton) to Sacramento and back with ease. That is roughly 50 miles of mind-numbing nonethingness at a crusing speed of 16 miles an hour.

He then proceeded to call me weak. I would not take that.

I swore to him that by the end of this Summer, I will be able to do as he did and conquer the pathway to the home of the Gonvernator.

This summer, I will train at least thrice a week. I plan to ride 20 miles continuously at 16 miles an hour. In addition to riding, I will be maintaining a balanced meal to ensure that I have enough protein (to build muscle) and carbs (to suply energy).

Wish me luck! Hot bod here I come!
