Hello again dwellers of these here fitness forums!
Some of you may have seen a few threads by me about my recent fitness goals, and questions related to it, but as this is a different topic of questions, I decided to start a new thread to make things simpler.
The new diet seems to be going ok, since starting it about a month ago I've lost about 5kg, now down to 100kg.
Anyways, onto to the topic, the gym I've joined is finally open, and after my induction at the weekend I stuck around for a bit of a work out, and nearly killed myself, which felt good ^_^
I've done gym stuff quite a bit before, but usually I've just been doing whatever the friend I went with was doing, figuring it would all help (and at the time it did have an effect) but back then he was trying to put on muscle mass, this time i'm primarily focusing on stamina and cardio (along with weight loss - target is 93kg)
Previously I used to mostly do Pyramid Lifting, and occasionally super sets.
I understand for cardio and stamina etc I want to work on lots of reps at a low weight - but how low and how many reps? what percentage of my one rep max should I be looking at?
Which leads on to - can anyone suggest a good iPhone app (preferably free) to track what I'm doing at the gym, the diet one can have weights, but its mostly cardio that that app is interested in. So suggestions are welcome.
Lastly - how much cardio warm up/down should I be looking at each gym session, and can anyone suggest ways to make it less boring? I never used to do more than 5 mins on the bike before starting my pyramids, but now i appreciated i need more cardio work, but after 20mins on saturday I was bored off my face . . .
