Muscle Podcast #6: A trip to the gym – Musclefurs In Action At A Furcon.
Chest (and some arms) day, because everyone loves training chest!
schreddedwolf, tiptoe, zakrhyno, maximus-ursus and special guest holliehyena went to Lifetime Fitness while at Midwest Fur Fest 2011. Zak and Hollie took video and pictures of the training session for us to use on the podcast and discuss the experience.
3-5 sets of increasing weight each set.
Flat bench – free weights
Incline bench – free weights
Isometric decline presses – machine
Flat bench dumbbell presses – free weights
Dumbbell rows – free weights
Seated cable crossovers – machine
Elliptical machine – cool-down
Not everyone did all of the exercises or 5 sets of each exercise. Max and Tiptoe followed each other around a lot, since they are used to training together regularly. Schredd was in his zone and trained by himself a lot – mainly because he lifts so much more weight than everyone else, so working in with anyone requires taking off and putting on a lot of plates. Everyone took turns spotting him for practice.
Group discussion: Answer questions from the fans and talk about doing the exercises.
What is it like training with other the furs?
- Have each talk about their experience in the gym and why they wanted to be there.
Why do you train?
Schredd – training to compete
Tiptoe, Zak and Hollie – training to lose weight
Maximus – training to add mass and lose fat
Answer other fan mail.

If you are unfamiliar with the Furry Muscle Podcasts, you can read about them here:
If you have questions for the cast, please respond to this journal so we can answer them for you. I will be linking the videos as soon as they are in a publically-accessible location so everyone can watch and ask questions about them as well. Also, although the podcast is live via Skype, we still only have the cast on the call. Hopefully we can make the show at some point where other furs can call in, but we just can't do it yet. The show already runs several hours long and it takes Zak quite a while to get the editing done to a reasonable level and posted into iTunes.
