Seem to finally getting stronger and fitter again. i ran over a mile (out of necessity) the other day and did some forefront running with thin moccasins. I've never been much of a mid-distance runner and I just booked it the whole way. probably can run a few k at a fairly high speed. Going to run on a track soon to test it out.

hey,

no,  just not posting all my workouts, also I just posted this Monday and last Saturday if that was confusing.

I'm at the gym at least three days a week.

Probably start doing cf again soon and maybe quitting the gym. Just moved so I didn't workout since Monday, but going today after work. I'm going to try to get a barbell and workout in the snow this winter!

also excited to try out this running thing.

Thurs:

- standing chest flies (80 lbs on each arm)
- bear running (up down left right) [usually just crawl up and down on all fours with legs strait] - running is a bitch and good on the chest.
- 7x7,6x6,5x5, medicine ball overhead throw
- 7x7,6x6,5x5,  kettlebell swing (20 kg)
- [EDIT] forgot I had done 7x7 box jumps @ 24". ouch.
oh man, these 7,6,5, its hard on the body..and the mind. more tortuous than tabata I think as you gotta put the #'s in. I tend to bow out a bit on tabatas in reps.

---
50 pullups
4:42

Pretty happy with that as my 'muscular endurance' stuff is currently low with pullups from not doing cf. I was going to shoot for 100 and it was clear my pacing was all wrong for that, was doing 2 at a time the last few. SD, how are you breaking up you 100 pulls/chins?

---
probably back to deadlift/clean today:
...
- [EDIT] prety standard today: 300 lb deads for reps, cleans, did some heavier overhead squat work at 85 lbs which is really hard for me, front squat/push press @115, lots of deadhang, russian step ups with 28 kg each hand...finished with a full-on sprint round 2 blocks.

Hahaha!!! Sorry - forgot. Yeah, the politics tend to distract me.

Pull-ups? Depends on the day. I have cut to doing sets of no less than 5 and no more than 10. I had been doing 10-15+ per set, but it strains my shoulders, so I cut down to "safe" numbers and just do more sets.

Tuesday:

TG warm-up
weight work
400 push-ups

tabata:
   calf raises
   sit-ups
   TG bicep/tricep combo


Buuurrrnnnsss......

y- day

- backsquat 135 x 10, 185 x 5, 205 x 5
- overhead squat @ 65 x 5,5,5
- 15 full deadhangs
- pulley curl with split rope - max plates (100 lbs) x 7,5,5
- 17 full deadhangs
- 7x7 front squat to push-press @ just 50lb (ug!)

havn't done real a back squat in awhile. It wasn't a tremendous amount of weight..but certain parts of my legs, back, and shoulders got it real good from the above combination. Going to try to do the full 110 reps (7x7,6x6,5x5) next time on those FS-PP

Yesterday I went to a "Sports Authority' looking to outfit my abode with some equipment. Boy was I in for a shock. They had kettlebells in lbs and not kgs and the ones that were 15 lbs (which is nothing) were like $35. 30 lbs ~ $60. I've been using the 28 kg for my KB swings. This  was going to be a major exercise I was going to do at home and then be doing some heavy barbell lifting also on my own time and checking into cf again. Well turns out 45 lb plates are $50 and a 60 lb kb is almost $100! craziness. I'll have to snipe craigslist for this stuff or just continue paying $40 a month to use (and break) whatever equipment I want at the gym.

I did buy a 12 lb squishy medicine ball. Going to try out some home workouts based on some funky things one can do with that. I also have a dumbell (max 45 lbs) and a pull-up bar now, so even if I can snag a cheap heavy KB i'll be in decent shape and could just do the heavy lifting at cf.

---

alas, its gotten kind of disheartening that no one else posts here other than SD and I and the occasional one or two others. Obviously threes some really strong and fit people on this board that just don't post very often at all never-mind post workouts.  Of course if I don't post it will be even worse but I think i'll be back posting more on another site where there is more feedback on such things.

word to the wise,  I don't agree with LaLanne's adage "Exercise is king. Nutrition is queen" as being absolute or even totally accurate. However,  I do think the best diet with otherwise worst habits (which could include lack of exercise - or at least natural movement and posture) is really a spinning wheel.

Don't feel disheartened guys :) Even though I don't post on here, this is the forum and thread I view the most.  I appreciate the unconventional approach you guys use and that you all are meeting success with different goals and protocol.  I also enjoy to see the trials and tribulations you guys endure and overcome. Don't feel that your posts are a waste or there is no interest.
