Not Good To Take Long Breaks

First body pump in like 2½ weeks, and boy oh boy, was it torture. I swear, YI's classes are getting tougher and tougher....either that, or he's tailored the classes to suit Lionheart and choosing killer tracks. He made a reference yesterday, "your heart should be pumping now, like a lionheart".

I've actually missed the last two weeks of his class, the last pump I went to was with Mr Ben Cool Sim, who was teaching us how to breathe. Would someone be so kind as to summarise when to breathe, coz actually I reckon it's really important.
Fill in the blanks:

Triple Rows, inhale while?
Biceps, inhale while?
Triceps, inhale while?
Clean and Press, inhale while?
Chest, inhale while?
Pushups, inhale while?

(I guess the exhale will be for the opposite movement, as per Newton's laws, so its understood).

Apart from squats, I stuck to my usual weights, and felt like dying. Lunges was PARTICULARLY difficult for me yesterday, don't know if it has to do with the fact the last time I did pump, I was in my 30s, whereas now I am in my 40s. Maybe I have to do what the other oldies do oridi, and use the bar as a support.

FBB...I think you're right. Bumped into YI yesterday evening on my way to RPM, and the first thing he did when he saw me was "Aiyah, why you didnt come ah...I did the lunge track for you, you know ah?" And with the three in a row finale as well....hmmm..sounds vellee vellee familiar to me...like a tough cookie's class I went to few weeks back...
But yesterday was a real bummer....I did BP and BS with Sue P and Boy Robin in the morning, and I have no intention to go for any more classes for that day. Then wifey ordered me to "accompany" her to her inaugural PT session with Wenisa, which was slotted at 7.00pm. So I thot, "why not go to RPM then?" I was totally trashed after that...3 classes is very exhaustive. Wonder how Rapunzel can survive four classes in a row hoh??

respect you la!!! two consec classes and i'm oridi dying... let alone three. rapunzel is probably like samson, derives her strength from her hair. maybe if she cuts it, she can only go one class....we need a male delilah.

ooh, i heard u and yhsmom going for diva jam tonite!!!

Hahaha...dat is correct. Rapunzel definitely has to cut her whiplash hair all right. She is such a samson dat she doesnt even need to physically punch the day lights out of a person. Just a whip of her hair and you u will be floored...
Ya...doing the Leon Jam tonite with yhsmom at spk. I still feel dat I am making the biggest mistake of my life, attempting to do jam. I tried jam last week at MNLI's class, and she did all those tracks with lots and lots of hip sways, hip swivelling, and hip anything. I can never stomach anything to do with turning my hips in "circular" motion wan...Aiyo...felt like a freak. Managed to last for 7 tracks and bumped out finally. Think I will mati tonite...literally. Bumped into the diva at Bgsr Village Bakerzin yesterday nite. He "kindly" told me, " Dont worry...I will be "GENTLE" tonite". Dat response sent shivers down my spine....somehow dat phrase reminds of Rod Stewart salivating prior to eating up his victim, in the song "Tonight's The Night"....muahahahahahaha....

hey FBB :) to answer your questions :)

Triple Rows, inhale while? easier way to asnwer is when you exhale: when squeezing the bar up to navel, and when returning to set after the triple are finished

Biceps, inhale while? lowering the bar

Triceps, inhale while? for both tricep extension and presses, inhale while the bar is lowering

Clean and Press, inhale while? more like just keep breathing when you can catch your breath :)

Chest, inhale while? bar is coming down to chest and you're feeling the stretch against your cleavage ;)

Pushups, inhale while? lowering body

rule of thumb: exhale while squeezing and inhale while resisting (a.k.a. negative contraction, or stretching) targeted muscle

hope this helps :)

Inhale when u bring the bar up to shoulder level, when u straighten ur body and push ur bar up to the sky.. its exhale. exhale on exertion. Correct boh? Long time no Bpump.

Lionheart, the Rapunzel happened to be someone I knew in Bjam. I think its her signature style, and she cant be talked into cutting her whiplash. (impossible to get her to cut). I know its distracting.

hey, thanks ben, for the tips. are you ben mr cool sim or ben master trainer from singapore? probably the latter lar hor.

K...thanks for pointing out Rapunzel's signature locks. Come to think of it, I can never picture Rapunzel without her weapon. Rapunzel with short locks IS NOT Rapunzel at all. But then, noticed the length of her hair is always around her butt. She must have cut her hair sometime in order to maintain that length.

FBB...had a laughing good time in Leon's jam with yhsmom last nite, although I simply cannot do most of those hip swirls, hip trust, hip shakes or hip what. So when are YOU going to BODYJAM with your FDI, eh? BTW, your FSI and Boy Robin had requested me to go again to Leon's Bodyjam next week. I think they want to participate in the class and laugh at me all the way lah....hahaha

I find her very distracting whenever we are in the dance classes. several times,I would just stand there and look at her (frozed with amazement?)tossing her locks around. We will advise her again and again to braid her locks to a shorter length.
Hehe.. FBB doing hip thrust, hip rolls, left , right , left left, right, left right right..FDI must train FBB to show Lionheart that he "boleh"

I am going next week too to experience FDI's normal track selection (yesterday's was a special retro themed class). (regular Free Sex provider out of town)Wah! Robin & FSI are joining ah? Give it another try la Lion! Remember Leon said last night that it takes at least 3 classes to loosen up?

yhsmom...aiyo..loosen up ar?...can almost feel or hear my bones cracking oridi. But you terror lah..you were grooving like nobody's biz. kekekeke...who on earth is Free Sex Provider???? You must point him or her out to me..dat is I am assuming that this name belongs to a human being...oops. Guess FSI and Robin will be in next week. FSI's parting words to me was "Come again next week ar..we are free...no tuition mah". And during the disco-ish second track, I can see both of them, swallowing their chuckles, when they saw me trying to boogie...woe
Should we throw down the challenge to dear FBB...Oi..FBB, be a MAN and come to FDI's jam next Tuesday, 7.40pm SPK. If you go, I will be there...{evil cackle}...
