Today was CARDIO!

Sets of burpees to jumping jacks to static jog


have you ever tried burpee pull-ups? its a great workout in itself and generally based on the range of activity one can do an even larger number of pulls than just repeated deadhangs.

Am I the only one working out this week??? Come on, guys!!!


heh, I insured myself pretty bad from my last post in my lower back so I've actually been on my largest no-workout haitus in some time. stessful!

I did start up at my house over the weekend with some hindu and handstand pushups. I can get 10 HSPU in a row now which seems good to me. Will be back to my CF workouts tomorrow.

Can't believe I never saw this thread earlier.  I always try to base my workouts on a sort of "crossfit" idea, being short and intense. 

Monday - Heavy bench press, 4 sets of 8-10 reps each.  4 sets, max reps of pullups.  Body weight deadlifts, 3 sets of about 8 reps each.  I'm just getting back into deadlifting, I used to be able to do nearly 3 times my body weight, but I haven't done them in a long time, and so I lost my strength.  Slowly starting again.  After all that, some lightweight, high-rep barbell squats, just a couple sets.  Monday is usually just basic lifts, for building strength.

Tuesday - Nice fast run, roughly 1 mile at a fast pace, then 5 uphill sprints, roughly 100M each, then another fast mile, then some bodyweight squats and about 100 yards of lunges, then a light cooldown jog.

Wednesday (tomorrow) - 5 rounds for time, each round consisting of 20 pushups, 10 pullups, 20 situps, 1/4 mile sprint.

Friday is usually track sprints or lots of uphill sprints.

Thanks, I've never actually had any kind of athletic injury (and suspect it also has to do with the intense body-work I've been doing) so it has been quite the experience. I think considering the situation, it has indeed healed pretty quick considering there was some serious nerve madness. Live and learn.


But...back to it.

5 min Skill: Ring Dips (high arm strength and low bodyweight makes me kill at these, some much bigger guys can barely do em)

800m run (running is my weakness, but I'm trying to get back into it. Don't know how to pace these things but I ended up sprinting towards the end and finished in 3:05 so I assume even in present state could get a much better time)

AMRAP in 10 minutes:
250 M row
20 Wall Ball
[3 full rounds with time to rest]

(immediately) Followed by 8 minute AMRAP:
4 Handstand Push-ups
8 Overhead Squats (95/65#) [ just used a PVC pipe due to el backo)
15 Box jumps (24/20?)
20 Sit-ups

also dicked around on my favorite soft-ball grip pulls, and biked around a lot as always

Ring dips are a great exercise.  I still remember the first time I tried them; I could do 25-30 regular dips, and after 7 ring dips I dropped to the ground, amazed at how difficult and tiring they were.


As far as running goes, I think sprints, especially longer sprints like 400m and 800m are the best for us, especially from a paleo perspective.  I think it best represents the kind of running they would have done in their natural environment.

Yeah, Im lovin the rings right now. Muscle ups are so hard on them. But, yeah, I love sprinting barefoot. The best is in the spring when it rains, to go trail running or field running barefoot and get soaking wet while doing it.

500 m row

Gymnastics B
(if i recall)

3 rounds of:

3 muscle ups
5 ring dips
10 sec L seat hang
10 superman back extensions
10 kettlebell swings [20 kg]
10 boxjumps [20"]


“Fran”
21-15-9
Thrusters (95/65#)
Pull-ups

Scaled down to 65lb to go easy on the spine but honestly was limited more by endurance. I banged out 12 deadhangs after the first 21 thrusters, but after that I was struggling to do 5 at a time..then 3!

basically its 45 pulls and 45 thrusters (front squat to shoulder press) in 8:33.

-Ran through the woods (like a natural obstacle course, jumping leaping and climbing over all types of debris and logs) FUN FUN FUN

-Climbed 5 trees

-Martial arts (mainly submissions with my stuffed tiger)

-Made a small dagger by rubbing it back an forth on a big stone (amazing, my forearms and shoulder and bicep feel better doing this, no more resistance band or wrist roller for me, i feel like i am doing something fictional)
Also works my muscles a lot more, making me=y arms super strong, I feel like a neanderthal! ARGHGHGH

-held a big brick in each hand to see how long i could hold it (good forearm workout)

*edit: when running though the woods, my balance is tested several times to walk across these logs amazing and fun, i feel agile like a cat

I guess I didn't learn my lesson, I'm back at this kind of madness

800 m row warmup

“The Centurion”
5 rounds for time of:
45 sec on and 15 sec off of:
Deadlift (1.5% BW)
Bench (BW)
Power Clean (3/4 BW)

I did BP 155 DL 135 (still nursing back) and only 95 PC

I don't know how many reps I did, but i am not a centurion (100 reps/15 mins of work).

Your kid sounds very healthy on a raw animal diet, awesome  ;D

My exercise for the past few days was...

Sunday:
-hiking in forest, running up and down foresty hills (there are some awesome steep hills)
-running on straight paths while jumping over the fallen trees - fun
-lunge-walking on the way back (wow that did a number on my legs)
Monday:
-30 pushups (lol, I can do way way more but I got distracted by something)
-crazy dancing to some hard electronic for about an hour (to the point I was sweating)
Today:
-biking at quick-pace to do my weeks food shopping (went to various places, bought lean grassfed beef steak and chunks, all the organs and hard fat of one little lamb, cod liver oil, flax oil, raw sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, raw ultra-aged cheese)
-biking up some hills and having the heavy knapsack full of groceries to bike back with (to the point I was sweating a lot)
Tomorrow:
...I don't know, but I know I have to work on some upper body strength instead of always working my legs and ass only...so it may be just push-ups and pull ups, pulling cords etc... 8)
