yesterday i went swimming.  i swim 1 lap at a time at a fast pace, then rest until i start to get cold then repeat.  i alternate between freestyle and butterfly laps and stay in the water a total of 1 - 1.5 hours.  i dolphin kick the first 10 yards or so of every lap underwater to make sure my abs, lower back and legs get worked out as much as much as the upper body.

in a true paleo fashion i don't count my laps or time myself, but i do race other swimmers in the pool against their will.  the way i do it is as they are swimming i let them get about 10 yards head start and then i try to catch up with them by the end of the pool.

i leave the pool energized rather than tired, but i do feel sore when leaving - and that is how i know when to end my workout.  as soreness builds when i start to approach injury territory i leave.  i take approximately as many days off as it takes for the soreness to subside to about 30%.

hey dude

I dunno, my internet connection is not all that useable at my house (seems like this site is loading funny also?) and I got tired of getting in pointless discussions during the day at work.

I keep making improvements on lifts.

today I did three sets of five @90lb weighted dips. right after (30 sec)  I did 26 free dips in a row
friday I did 18 deadhangs followed by 6 @45 lb weighted pull-ups and then did ~2 @90 lb weighted pull-ups.

so starting at rest it looks like i'm in the 100lb level now for both pull-ups and dips 1RM

my decline bench is now 295 lb on the smith machine. concentrating on improving my deadlifts and squats. I'm doing zercher squats as posted above at my bodyweight. pretty intense. I'm probably starting back at my cross-fit gym..so I won't be benching and things like that as much anymore, probably just as well.

oh the 90lb pull-ups was witnessed by one Paleo Donk who was visiting over the weekend. We had a great time.

Man, those are some rippin' work-outs, guys!

Yeah, I've noticed the site has been twitchy, also. Slow loading, abrupt...

Proteus - I envy the swimming. Can't wait to get back by a lake. We lived next to a lake a few years back, but then bought a house (not by a lake). We've decided to sell this one and get our asses back to the water!

Today (Tuesday, 3-22):

75 pull-ups
75 chin-ups
300 sit-ups
500 calf raises
light weight
(upper)
tabata:
   sit-ups (200 more)
   stair sprints

Brings my monthly totals to 1185/1000 pull-ups and 5200/5000 sit-ups. Both monthly goals now met and exceeded. BOOM!!!

havn't been able to upload a new profile pic for some reason ( I get the access forbidden message here alot now too) but heres a recent shot.



my legs are definitely getting more proportionate as well with all the squats and deadlifts and such..they were like sticks even just this past spring.

Looking forward to being tanned and booking it bearfoot down a beach.

Well, I don't have a dog in that fight. I experiment to see what works best for me and leave others to do the same. That said, I find that both running AND dips work well for me (though I dislike running alone). LOVE to bike & swim.

Anyway....Thursday (3-24):

TG warm-up
tabata stair sprints
105 pull-ups
105 chin-ups
400 sit-ups
300 squats


monthly totals: 1350 pull-ups and 5800 sit-ups.

I did a bunch of cycles of this as a warmup.
"double dutch" and "horseback ride" with the 3" 50 ft rope and 90 lb dumbelll
bear crawls (up, down, side, side)
pulley flies (for pro)

the rope actions is really nice. I also like the perpetual pull down rope machine they have that is like endlessly pulling a dead body out of a well. The little diagram shows every muscle of the upper body in red. Pretty quality machine.

- press 100 lbs x 5 x 3 (shoulder has been feeling funny..not pushing it on the weight)
- dips 90 lbs x 5 x 3
- zercher squat: BW (165) x 20, 20, 10. pretty intense..I was trying to do as many reps in 2 mins for a competition on the other board. I got less than I thought but still pretty solid.
- 500 m row
foam roll, pvc mobility.

Tomorrows workout

-deadlifts,  still aiming for 2.5 body weight but nowhere near yet....I will have to buy new clothes soon though, my hip flexors are busting out.
-bench press

I was getting close to KD on dips/chins but backpack strap snapped. I need to get a proper belt set up.

Still no good with motivation but do my short workout every Friday morning no matter what and still gaining strength.

nice. were you just using a regular backpack?

I use the leather weight belt with the chains, but its way too big for my waist so it actually feels really risky on the pulls. On the dips it seems a little more secure just because it has a little more of my back to set on. Either way i'm looking for a better solution myself.

there is a special belt for weighted dips/chins which is of a different design than a powerlifting belt.  it looks like this:

http://www.gymdirect.com.au/resources/muscle%20motion%20products/neoprene%20dip%20belt%20_muscle%20motion%20(1).jpg

i have one (not this exact one, but very similar).  back when i was on steroids i used it a lot.  i used up to two 45lb plates on chinups and up to three plates on dips.  it works very well - easy to put on and take off and is rather comfortable even with three plates on.  now i just do chins with my own bodyweight though :(

i never used a regular powerlifting belt for any purpose - i believe it makes no sense.  the human body is already perfect it doesn't need any bracing unless you have a broken back or something.  using a a powerlifting belt is like running in air max shoes - its whack.  if you think you're hurting yourself reduce the weight and ask a professional to analyze your form.

if you use crutches in form of a belt or shoes you are creating a weakness in your body which ultimately may lead to an injury.

Regular but it was getting dangerous, I was too top heavy and nearly stacked it a few times lately.

right. thanks again for the tips.

Pretty sure my description is the same thing unless the above is ergonomic in some way. Its made out of leather and pretty standard to any gym i've been at.
http://www.fitness1st.com/2007%20images/DIPBEL~1-copy.jpg

the problem lies in that i'm doing 2 plates+ and my waist is like 28-29 or something. It can easily slide off me doing chin-ups. If there is any form compromise its accounting for that which shouldn't be a factor. the actual belt part minus the chain loops around, sort of like if you had a baseball hat where the last hole on the 'female' side went completly over the gap on the other side, making it basically unwearable.


Regular but it was getting dangerous, I was too top heavy and nearly stacked it a few times lately.

yeah I was advised against doing this or even trying a combination of both. theres those weight vests but I don't have a car, so i'd be riding to the gym with a 100 lb vest on. sooner or later i'll be over 100lb anyway and back with the dip belt. I guess they must have a smaller model of belts somewhere come to think of it, perhaps for chicks who lift.

looks functionally identical to mine.  i don't understand how it can possibly slide off regardless of your waist.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_R0viy9yAMNM/SoV3oKE_Z6I/AAAAAAAAAEc/-LjeafmgE_0/s400/weighted+chin+up.jpg

the weight essentially hangs on your quads and ass.  it is only called a belt - you don't use it as a belt ( see pic above ).  you only loop it around your body on the back side and then you loop it over your quads in the front.  then by lifting your legs up a bit you secure it in place.  i never had a problem.
