I returned to my gym two weeks ago after a few months away. I had an assessment from my fitness trainer which says I'm 220Ibs and 5"9. My new fitness program is high intensity cardio with strength training. It consists of the following three times a week -
1 x 10 minute Rowing machine (warmup at maximum setting)
3 x 15 minute Exercise bike at 30-40 kmph (This isnt programmed with hills in its set at high resistance all the way).
3 x 12 Abb machine (Currently at 40kg)
3 x 12 Bicep and chest machine (Currently at 60kg)
3 x 12 Tricep and back machine (Currently at 40kg)
3 x 20 Leg Press (Currently set at 160kg)
I'm 32 and my understanding is I'm passed the age at which I can grow. Is that right? I'm asking because over the last two weeks I've grown 5 inches to 6"2. It isnt better posture its my legs which have gone huge from the exercise bike (I think its the bike). My leg press has also gone up to 190kg. My diet has changed if its important from three set meals per day to one very large evening meal. On gym days this is after I've returned home from my exercise. It consists of 1-2 pints of whole milk, 200-500 grams of lean meat (depending on what my meal is) and lots of fruit everyday. I also take a Centrum Advance.
