Value For Time Workouts

I reckon RPM and 45 minute pump classes where instructors do all 10 tracks, are value for time workouts.

One reason why I go religiously for YI's class on Mondays is because of just that. He does 10 tracks for a 45 min class. Okay, sometimes he encroaches a bit into body jam, and granted, there is a 5 minute buffer, so in total, the class is probably around 50 minutes. Suits me fine.

Yesterday's class was toughened up, more than usual, because of the sudden guest star appearance of Lionheart. Actually I knew that Lion was coming, and had helped him set up his board, and placed weights in 10kg, 5kg and 2½ kg denominations for him......wah, very impressed therefore when he arrived in the middle of squats, went to get 2 more 10kg weights, and placed 20kg on each side. It is one of those rare classes where testosterone is more than estrogen. Apart from SC (not the one leaving comments on the blog) and Rapunzel, the rest were all guys. All quite regular too, so it's kinda like going for a school class.

As usual, whenever I stand behind Lionheart, I just get tired looking at the weights he carries. It can also be disconcerting when certain ladies carry more biceps weights than you do. I was pretty pleased I managed to complete the entire shoulder pushup sequence on my toes. It might be quite unfathomable to a outside observer why I then resort to donuts for the rest of the shoulder track. Well, the elbow still hurts when I do upright rows, but I've learnt to live with these battle injuries.

Couldn't stay for cardio, as had to rush off to finish a multitude of baking errands.
