Cardio Training : Jog at Marikina

Had a great cardio workout at Marikina Sports Complex this afternoon. The weather was perfect so I headed up there and did around 7 laps of walk, jog and sprint. This was part of my so-called gradual training for next week’s 3k and 5k fun run and for the upcoming events that I wish to join in. Got to be ready and fit before going to battle hehe.. As what the saying goes,  “Get fit to play, not play to get fit“.

 

Went there around 5 p.m. and there were only few joggers running. It surprised me a bit ’cause whenever I went there to jog, be it in the morning or evening, there were many runners on the track. By the time it was 6 p.m., people were coming in to the venue and the track was starting to be filled. So I guess if you want to jog with less people around, better go there around 5.

Workout Machines To Avoid

Ok, so you’ve been working out hard for quite a long time and has probably worked on with some or if not all of the machines at your gym. Well here’s something I’ve read in an article that would help you, or us to avoid possible injuries. There are certain machines you should avoid when having a work out, machines that I’m sure you use a lot to build your strength and boost your muscles. Read this article HERE.

 

I, for one, didn’t know about most of these stuffs, well one thing I knew was that the behind the neck pull down was a no-no as it might damage your shoulder and your spine, but the others were new to me. Thanks to this article, it made me more cautious when having a work out.
