a Wedensday workout

I normally work out at studio 831 on a Tuesday and Thursday, but since my trainer over slept ūüėõ 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:…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

A new workout

My workout beat me up today. ¬†I have doubts that I can even remember what I did or what the names of the new exercise is. ¬†I was truly whipped by the end of this workout. The warmup was fairly typical for these new routines. ¬†I do a 500 meter row, and then practice my…

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…
