5 rounds for time = 4m 37s
3 pull-ups
8 push-ups
13 squats

Supplementary Exercises:

Crunches: 25 X 3

Back Extensions: 25 X 3

Notes:

Woohoo!

Shaved nearly 15 secs from my previous Level 2 Day 2 attempt and I feel great though I had to pace myself while doing the squats. I still love my knees you know.

Helped my mom to weave or anyam the coconut leaves to make three ketupat or rice cubes cases orkelongsong . Initially I planned to do most of the weaving but by the time I finished terawih, there were only three pairs of leaves left. Bummer!

However I’m proud to say that in my family, I’m the only one who had learned this complicated traditional skill from my mum. Hopefully I can pass this custom down to my own offsprings one day.

Insya-Allah.

I just made three of these. πŸ˜›

… is through her stomach’s.

Is it true?

Alhamdulillah I managed to eke out 3 sets more than the previous. Sweat is pouring out from my body right now and it feels damn good. I felt a twinge in my right knee just now but after performing slower squats, it felt normal again. But as usual, necessary precaution will be taken.

Alright that’s it, need to continue baking The Fat Pakcik $250 Chocolate Chip Cookies.

It will be a long night ahead.

The ingredients

p/s: I am still fat. Haha. Especially after eating the cookies.

20th Ramadhan – And The Struggle Continues

Level 2 Day 1

Maximum rounds in 20 min = 22 sets

1 chin-ups
3 push-ups
4 squats

Supplementary Exercises:

Crunches: 20 X 3

Back Extensions: 20 X 3

Notes:

Wawaweewa!

Alhamdulillah! My left knee seemed fine when I did the workout just now. I even managed to do two extra sets though my pacing was constant and I hardly pushed the intensity. But still it was a tough workout and I enjoyed it to the max.

A worrying note that I should keep in check is that I keep eating more and more for buka puasa nowadays. Though my mom didn’t cook a lot, the amount of food we received from relatives and neighbours meant that the table is always full with different variety of dishes.

For example, I ate nasi beriani dam kambing from Khalid Mosque and mee rebus plus teriyaki chicken just now. This was in contrast to the early days of Ramadhan when my breakfast comsisted of just a few slices of bread and milk.

And my new semester has started and the only time I can fit in my workout is from 5.45am to 6.45am. That’s way too early. Anyone doing your training at that time?

Aiyayaiyayai!

17th Day Ramadhan – Am I Fit?

Level 2 Day 3

For time = 0m 00s
13 pull-ups
26 push-ups
26 squats

Supplementary Exercises:

Crunches: 20 X 3

Back Extensions: 20 X 3

Notes:

As stated the last time, I refrained myself from doing the squats to give my knees a chance to recuperate. The workout was tough and I think it’s best I stick to this level till I can perform the Level 2 Day 3 test comfortably.

Kay time to eat soto and BBQ chickens.

Yummy!

Notes:

My cycling fitness is getting better as I can now cycle at a higher gear than usual. I managed to push harder and not be contented with the normal low gears that I have always been using.

Other than that, nothing much to report.

Salam Nuzul Al Quran to one and all.

Notes:

The weather was still hot even at a quarter past 6 in the afternoon. I had to cut short the distance because with the slow pace I was trudging along just now, I would be late for breakfast at home today.

And now waiting to wet my mouth with the precious taste of water.

Selamat berbuka!
