Hey guys! I know I am one day or rather 2 days behind with posts. its the weekend so I have places to go and people to see. :P I do have a life outside the weight loss/ fitness world surprising as that may sound to some. ^-^

Anyway this is what I did during my 4th day at Eclipse 24/7 Fitness Center

Set for my power sets!Coach Vic said that i was going to do power sets that day. Basically we start with 5 reps of High Pulls (green weights), then move immediately over to Squats (metal rod on the right side of photo), then heading over to do some Push Press (blue weights) with only 40 secs of rest in between sets. So one round of High pulls, Squats, and push press is = 1 set, rest for 40 secs and repeat. We did a total of 14 Sets of 5 reps. It was challenging but I loved it!

This is how we kept track of how many sets I finished so not to forget.

After the power set we headed on to the Ab Crunch Machine and started murdering my abdominal muscles. :P

So that concluded my workout for that day! I loved the power sets because after completing all 14 sets I had a HUGE sense of Accomplishment! Who’d have thought I can actually pull those off (pun slightly intended). Anyway after working out I headed out to Mall of Asia to grab some lunch and also a snack. I managed to have the most AMAZING takoyaki ever!
