200lb front squat

It’s been a while since I did a fitness post.  Still going strong, and getting stronger. yeah… New personal record there. I stopped before I got real heavy. If I pushed it further I would need to use a belt and really work on keeping my form. I had the time this morning, I think…

turkish get ups

This routine is one of my favorites when I am working out.  In the past I have always used a dumbbell  because it was easier to perform the exercise.  This routine is supposed to be done with a barbell, but that requires a lot of arm and shoulder strength to maintain the balance of the…

dead lift 3x record

On Monday I had a workout and I broke my Dead lift 3x record by a lot.  With a thorn in my foot!  Over the weekend I stepped on something in the back yard and I have been dealing with this thorn for a couple of painful days.  It was just behind the ball of…

a Wedensday workout

I normally work out at studio 831 on a Tuesday and Thursday, but since my trainer over slept 😛 yesterday, we rescheduled for this morning. Warmup: 500 meter row leg kicks, kick your leg fore and aft 20 times leg side kicks, kick your leg left and right 20 times 5 inchworm push ups AMRAP:…

fight gone bad

At the gym I go to, studio 831, we have the wall of shame/fame what ever you want to call it.  On this wall you have records  of your times compared to others. My trainer has decided to put my times on the wall, and for me personally, I have high expectations, so today was…

my new challenge. olympic lifting.

and why I suck at it. Lately my trainer and I have been working on lifting at studio 831.  This has been very difficult for me due to injuries that I sustained in an accident in the fall of 2007. Anyhow, I started cross fit training in part to address the injuries I sustained in…

cardio-conditioning can be hard.

ever have one of those workouts where you totally forgot what you did?  It must have been a hard one… warmup: jump rope intervals 1 minute seconds on 10 seconds off x5 butt kicks high knee run lunges while holding arms straight up dislocates good mornings back squats skill: for the skills lately we have…

Crosstraining today? man-eaters suck.

My workout today was your standard workout but I don’t feel like  it was really that hard.  My trainer was complaining to me that I bitch about my shoulders, elbow, etc.. I asked her not to worry about that because that pain that I go through helps me regain and maintain flexibility.  I really shouldn’t…

X training today..

First workout after almost 2 weeks off.  My trainer took a vacation last week, so it has been almost 2 weeks since I last worked out with her.  Looking back, hindsight says that week off was sorely needed.  I needed a break from that routine.  I tried to make a commitment to make this 6am…

Puking with the prowler

Man… what a day.  Yesterday I felt kind of tired so I went to sleep early, perhaps too early…  I woke up around 3, 4, and finally at 5:30.  Not beat, but not completely awake either.  Either way I was excited to work out and try my new toy. At my local Fry’s electronics store I…
