I guess it comes to all programmers after a while, our job is so unhealthy, I got flabbier and flabbier, my back started aching from sitting, and since I quit the fags (that's cigarettes on this side of the pond) I don't go up and down the stairs 10 times a day either. So I started going to a gym 3 days a week.

Its only for about 40 mins each session, full body, 3 sets of 10 reps with the weight set so the 31st rep is impossible; its a routine I was shown when I did gym work 20 years ago, and I have to say, the results are astounding.

Perhaps its the 2000% increase in exercise, but after just 2 weeks my back is far better, energy levels are up, the flab shrinking slowly and muscle bulk returning to my enfeebled torso.


The routine is squats, pull downs, rowing, situps, flies, bench press and curls by the way. As you can see its very simple.

And despite losing flab, I have kept my 48 inch chest! Result! Smile | :)


So, I can recommend it. Doesn't take long, and gives good results.
