Mike Coogan

Workout session
Photo captured in July 2005

A month ago I mentioned the fitness competition which took place right here in Manchester. I may have neglected to properly acknowledge and give attribution to the winner, Mike Coogan. He beat me by 20 points (a small gap) and snatched the Mr. Fitness title for 2006. For what it’s worth, here is a detailed list outlining of the different stages of the competition, which spanned a period of approximately 5 months.

  1. Rowing 3000 meters, ‘Concept’ ergo level 10 (slow equipment)
  2. Bench press (Scott machine), 1 repetition maximum
  3. 800 meters on treadmill, 10 degrees horizontal incline
  4. Shoulder press (Scott machine), 1 repetition maximum
  5. Crosstrainer 3,000 strides at level 5, no grip on bars
  6. Maximum pushups (120-second limit)
  7. Step-ups 200 repetitions (with two 6 KG dumbbells)
  8. Squats on Smith machine, 1 repetition maximum
  9. 10.15 KM run (treadmill)
  10. Mini-triathlon (3-mile run, 1,000 strides (level 5) on crosstrainer, 1-mile row on ergo (level 5))
