Update: Ashtanga Yogi and Marathon runner here. I finally took the gym membership.

August 14, 2018

This is a follow up to the post I did 2 days ago:


I have taken a 3 month membership at a pretty well equipped, "luxury" gym, yesterday evening.

They first did a body analyses on me. Here are my numbers:

Weight: 71.1kg (158 pounds)
Height: 176cm (5 feet 11 inches)
Total Body Water: 41.9L
Protein: 11.3kg (25 pounds)
Mineral: 3.99kg
Body Fat Mass: 13.9kg (30.6 pounds)
Skeletal Muscle Mass: 32kg
Basal Metabolic Rate: 1606 kcal
BMI: 23
Percent Body Fat: 19.5%
The Segmental Body Fat analysis showed that my waist had the most excessive fat.

After the analysis, I was taken to hit the weights.

The trainer made me do isolation pulls on different machines, 2 sets of 20 reps each. It was pretty challenging. I also did a 5kg dumbbell lifts with both arms, alternatively. 2 Reps, 30 each.

I've read on TRP that we should be doing mostly compound lifts. I conveyed this to the trainer. He said, that he will make me do a mixture of compound and isolations.

The trainer himself is pretty bulked, more than I would prefer on myself. My target is something like a Zach Efron body. I showed Zach Efron images to my trainer, and he says "its not natural. He's done it using a lot steroids"

Am I heading in the right direction?
