time away

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on February 28, 2011

I was out of town over the weekend and didn’t make time to train. Unfortunately I didn’t make time for mobility drills either, as as result I’ve seen some back sliding my progress. Back to work tomorrow. My mind and body are looking forward to it.

Sleepin’ in

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on February 22, 2011

I forgot to set my alarm last eve so I over slept. The price of oversleeping was both my workout and my hot breakfast, a terrible price to pay.

Near midday I had a slow calendar so I took a little extra time to workout
Dumbell pigeon toe deadlift 120 reps
Dumbbell row 158 reps
Dumbell snatch 100 reps
Burpee 35 reps
Supine Bicycle 100 reps

8 minutes apiece, 50lbs for exercise 1 – 3 and body weight for 4 and 5.

Snows here

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on February 21, 2011

Sunday was booked as my off day. I think it was a good thing, I think I overplayed it a bit on the last round of jumps and left my left calf a little tight, it took a day to work out.

Monday am
We stayed up a bit late Saturday and Sunday night. I awoke Monday with little motivation. As a result I barely got down to the gym and I only just got two exercises in time.
Pigeon toe deadlift with 135 lbs, 57 reps in 8 minutes
Kettlebell rows with 24K kettlebell for 134 reps

At noon I shoveled rather than hit the gym. It was mildly aerobic.
I tore the callus off my right hand today which is annoying but I’ll deal with it.
