Strength training on the prowler

Today I did another strength routine on the prowler, no puking this time!¬† My trainer and I also verified the weight of the prowler we use, and its heavier than we thought.¬† No wonder I puked last time!!¬† We thought the prowler weighed in at ~50 lbs, but it is actually around 75 lbs…¬† that…

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…

X training today..

Well today was an interesting day. ¬†Kind of a nice way to compare my fitness to some others who have been taking the X-Training class at studio 831. ¬†With the holiday coming up, my trainer had substituted and for my workout, she gave me the same routine. ¬†I came out of this work out a…

The prowler revisited.

Today I had more of a classical cross fit training session. ¬†I am really starting to get over these injuries that have been plaguing me over the past couple of months… hell, it’s been since December 2011 when I pulled a muscle in my lower back. ¬†It still bothers me, but some recent dead lifts…

training is getting intense

It’s about time too. I was getting a little bored with the old routine and a little frustrated with the muscle and tendon pulls that were keeping me from strength training exercises. I was looking forward to the workouts despite the sore legs. This past Saturday I ran the stairs at sea cliff beach. The…

“back room brawl” redux

My trainer likes to redo work outs once or twice a every couple of months to get a gauge of where I am at. ¬†Today was one of those days. ¬†We did a workout that I last did in March. ¬†I blogged about it here:¬†A new workout. Today’s work out was a slight variation on…

Feel’en good again…

It’s been a rough couple of months with the workouts. ¬†Pulled muscles and strains have really put a damper on my workouts. I was trying to ramp up for the spring, but first I re-injured a pulled tendon in my elbow, which has restricted most of the normal weights and kettle bells because for a…

Dropping barbells.

It sucks. I was going for a one rep max on my back squat and on my last rep, I lost my balance coming out of the squat. ¬†It was kind of scary actually, I rolled forward into this portable weight bar, which didn’t stop my momentum and the barbell, the weight bar, and yours…

Learned some new exercises today.

today I had a lot of new exercises in the routine along with a later than normal time. ¬†Normally I workout in the mornings, but today I had ¬†workout at noon which is a nice change of pace. This was the first workout since last week. ¬†I have been down with a cold and didn’t…
