Fuad Alhabshi is the charismatic lead singer of local rock band Kyoto Protocol, and even though he burns a lot of calories on stage, he wants to take it to the next level. That’s why he’s decided to run the 10KM event in the Men’s Health Women’s Health Night Run by AIA Vitality on 22 July 2017 in MAEPS, Serdang. He’s documenting his journey towards race day, and we’ve got the inside scoop on his progress. Check it out:
 

My Personal Trainer Vincent from Fitness First taught me how to use the foam roller. That was a much needed lesson, which helped me to loosen up all the tension that I had wound up during the last session. What amazed me was how sore I was just from doing an assessment! I was feeling my traps for days.
 

Today, we upped the intensity from the last session. For example, Vincent added weights to my squat workouts. Having his watchful eye was a pleasant change for me: he helped to correct my form when I tired and when laziness would take hold. I did pretty well with the squat, considering I hadn’t done it for more than a month. We worked our way up until a total of 45kg, which might be a personal best for me!
 

Then it was onto exercises that I struggle with: deadlifts! And after that, I found out I have another newfound Achilles heel: barbell rows. Clearly, I’m still a work in progress, but I love learning about my weaknesses because this gives me an opportunity to improve!
 

Side note: is it wrong to be glad that we haven’t done any running training yet?
