Today I Lifted Over 6 Tons
Never thought I'd be one to "lift weights," but today I started a muscle "toning" program at the YMCA. I went really light, only setting each of the machines between 40 and 60 pounds.
The Y has something called Fitlinxx, which keeps track of each machine, the number of pounds/reps/sets. I was quite surprised when I checked out to see that the total amount of pounds I had lifted 12,480 pounds in the 45 minute workout. That's over 6 tons! Seems like a lot of weight, and I know on several of the machines I'll at least double the weight next time around.
Fitlinxx is pretty cool, makes workout information available online.
