I’ll have to go against the grain here and post about how much I suck. I’m finally back in the western world and decided to join a gym for the length of time I’m here. Tv’s built into treadmills, climbing wall that rotates to any angle, giant hamster wheels, the works, this gym has it all except for the weird guy that stands in the showers and hands me towels and compliments back in mainland China.
But for insurance purposes i had to do an induction, as opposed to in china where they just take your money and stare at you from across the room.
Some back story; five months ago I knew I would be coming back to the UK and wanted to bulk up to give my family a surprise as I had spent a month treking around the countryside eating grubs and whatnot… Anyways, four solid months of free weights and one month of dicking around ended up with me throwing away most of my clothes because they were too small and my family freaking out becuse of how big and more healthy I looked.
So fast forward to today where I do this induction where all these electrical doodads and gizmos are attached to my body and I have to do these weird tests. I figured because I just got off being jetlagged I’d be a little lower than usual.
Fuck me. The print out comes in three colours for each statistic; bodyfat, resting heart rate, forced vital capacity all came in red, almost everything else apart from weight and came in yellow.
I should explain that green is pretty much the only good colour, yellow not so good, red, bad…
Ok so the good thing is that I’m in a position to get all dem colours to green but I had no idea I was messed up. My family has a tendancy towards diabetes and I have a pig heart - but I thougt my filling up my t-shirt (in a good way) I was moving away from those risks. I guess now I have pretty concrete goals for the rest of my time here…not just getting bigger but getting healthier , ie cardio, better diet
