Just got back from my boot camp workout. Right now I feel good.
Been playing a lot of badminton recently so I'm feeling good about it.

Want to run more so I won't run out of energy while playing badminton, which happen on several occasions.
I made it through my weekly yoga workouts, now I get to rest until Sunday (well, some other light exercise, but not yoga).

The new Fitocracy updates are kind of nice as well (I think I'm almost level 9).
Since I am back home and I don't have to cook for myself anymore (yay) I decided to put on some weight finally.
in 3 and half months I went from 63 to 74 (163 lbs) aiming for 80 and later 85 Kg (in a year or so) height 182cm

Doing weights, pushups and crunches.
Gain in muscle mass on arms is already quite visible but with abs not much. kinda need to step up the routine and find more exercises than crunches (which i think i had been doing wrong anyway)

Need to join some yoga class for stretching also as I hate doing that so some motivation from a group is a necessity:)

If you want muscle gain from yoga I'd go for Vinyasa (with maybe some Yin mixed in, or afterwards on your own for 20-30 minutes) or Hot Yoga (aka Bikram), they seem to be the most likely to pack on muscle and you will certainly stretch the crap out of muscles you probably aren't hitting right now which will likely be a big benefit.

i want from yoga to be able to stretch properly...
as I really lack motivation to do it by myself (as its frigging boring)
muscle gain from normal exercises.
i have my on and off periods with training. using weights now of 60 kg.
then i see tv programs like mtv made and in 4 weeks they can do 150 situps or lift 90 kg or something and then i feel so weak.
Oooh, there's a Bikram place in Sellwood. I might have to go to a session or two and see how it is!

There's one in John's Landing too if it's closer for you.
I have a very simple workout plan: My beer is all located in the refrigerator in the lower half of my house. So every time I want a beer I need to walk all the way downstairs and then back up. Oh yes I also switch to light beer too.
This is probably region blocked, but definitely fits the thread.

It's a bit odd for them to not be mocking the person that they're primarily interviewing.
Getting up at 4:30 am to work out really sucks but it has help me a lot physically and mentally. Also, I really slept much better this time around so this really benefit me a lot, i.e. no more crash in midday so I can focus on tasks that need to be completed.

Sure, running in dark neighborhood at 5 am may look odd to my neighbors (if they're up) but it's very quiet and calm.
