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…

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…

X Training or cross fit?

I was asked today what the difference between cross fit and X training is. ¬†Actually I have no idea how to answer that question. ¬†They both hurt, make you sweat a lot, and both use similar exercises. ¬†I guess the biggest difference that I notice is the structure of the workout. ¬†the focus with X…

“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…

Thursdays workout.

lots of new stuff last Thursday. ¬†It was refreshing. I thought the warmup was going to be the normal routine. ¬†I walk about 5 minutes on the tread mill, then row 500 meters. Not that day. The¬†new warmup kicked my ass. ¬†I did the normal 500 meter row, but then instead of stretching we jumped…

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…

the new routine…

and so begins a new routine at the gym. After starting to train at a new gym, I have to say that I really like it. ¬†It’s the small atmosphere that you get in this studio over the hustle and busy nature of the franchise gyms. ¬†It’s a much easier way to work out, ¬†I…
