So yesterday was a weights-only session. Legs! Now weights only can go one of two ways usually in Gym Ninja world. Either amazingly hardcore, or decidedly nondescript, and unfortunately the latter won. Perhaps GN hadn't given herself enough time to prepare her mind for the effort? After all, she'd not typed up the inspirational blog post until AFTER the workout...
Road testing her brand new red bootleg workout pants (another bargain from FitPro) Gym Ninja plugged in her earphones and was just walking out of the changing rooms when a girl in a towel grabbed her arm.
"There's a woman stuck in the shower cubicle!", She announced, her eyes like saucers.
Gym Ninja stared back blankly. Was there some sort of vibe she was giving out that said she wanted gossip based on shower cubicles? Thanks anyway.....
"I mean, she's really stuck in there! I was in the next cubicle and obviously I can't go & tell a member of staff so can you?"
Ahhh, OK so NOW Gym Ninja understands why you shared this shower gossip. Okey dokey.
"Oh & by the way, it's the cubicle with the 'Don't shave in the showers' sign on it!" And with that, the girl in the towel walked off.
Riiiiiight. Gym Ninja walked to the Reception Desk.
"Er, not that I saw this myself", Began Gym Ninja, 'But there is a woman trapped in the shower cubicle apparently."
The Receptionist did the same 'why are you telling me gossip about showers' look that Gym Ninja had just done moments earlier.
"Apparently she needs help getting out so if you could send someone in to help her?"
The Receptionist then realised what was being asked of her and nodded.
See? Not too hard to do a good turn is it? With any luck it may get complicated and they'd need to get the Fire Brigade in with their big hoses...mmm. Happy days!
So after a warm up on the X Trainer Gym Ninja pootled on upstairs to begin her weights session, feeling a tad conspicuous in her red bootleg workout pants. Not ideal if you're having a shy day everyone!
It's COWLASHES! She's back! The girl with the long thick black fake eyelashes? Remember her? Phew! Gym Ninja kind of missed her for a while. And so began the leg workout for the day. Squats, straight legged deadlifts, sumo squats, kick backs...a bit of a mish-mash to be fair. A brief gaze across the gym alerted Gym Ninja to a girl who shot back the most random eye daggars at her ever seen before from a stranger which was in itself, odd, but apart from that the workout was pretty bland.
But this lack of enthusiasm meant that Gym Ninja did then make time for an abs session which is rare in her world. Gym Ninja often wonders how her abs would look if she ever othered to train them specifially? Abs get a workout during all functional movements anyway. They work as Gym Ninja squats, lunges, deadlifts etc, so they are not neglected. But it'd be interesting. Maybe another attempt at Operation Abs is called for.......? Hmmm...
Gym Ninja clocked yet another new Personal Trainer at the gym. This was an older guy who looked very confident indeed...except was that a bad choice of uniform perhaps? The shirt he wore made it look as if he had rather a distended abdominal area. HAS he a big tum? Surely not? Must be the fabric and the cut of the shirt. Or a bit of wind? Maybe Gym Ninja needs to keep upwind of him? Or recommend a quality protein powder like Maximuscle as the one he uses must be causing all manner of abdominal discomfort and bloating....?
Anyway......a bland average workout session. Naff eh? Happens to the best of Ninjas. So, to brighten up the blog post Gym Ninja has attached a snap of some of the swag she purchased whilst at FitPro for her 'Bag of Evil'. This is secret code for the bag of equipment that Gym Ninja will use to train clients...mwahahaha!
