      I tried the osmosis workout for about 30 years. I think it was the potato chips that screwed up the routine.

      • 1 hr walk and also watched some football. I can't shake this phlegmy cold for the life of me. Racquetball yesterday, and I thought I was going to hack up a kidney.

            • FastCat, I lose out when I go super deep, too. REALLY activates those hips, though! Do you ever experience back pain with your squatting?

              Half my workout today, half my workout tomorrow...
              3x3 Push Up (22#)
              3x6 Push Up (16#)
              3x9 Push Up (11#)
              1x7 Chin Up
              2x3 Chin Up (5#)
              ~20 min. free run

              Made my client push my car around for 10 minutes, do a squat/swing circuit with dumbbells and a loaded backpack for another 10 minutes, and then a pushup ladder until I had her screamin' for mercy. Now if only I could get her to stop eating so much damn cheese..... ;-)

                Hi Jessie

                not yet though 30 mins after today's workout my back hurt but I figured it was from doing dead lifts yesterday in conjunction with low squats. I've seen some stuff crossfit board says tall people shouldn't go as low on their squats. Do you know anything about that?

                • I'm back on my Monday training day schedule. This means my arms are back on with only 5 days rest.

                  The dumbbell curl stayed at 20 lbs but the time went from 1 minute 24 seconds to 1 minutes 41 seconds.

                  The Tricep push down was changed again. The one bar was missing but they had a new one for a single cable pull. This changed the weight to 32.5 lbs and the time was 1 minute 57 seconds.

                  I really wanted to get the leg press back around the three minute mark. I don't need the DOMS I experience when the routine goes around 4 minutes in length. I upped the weight 40 lbs to 310. My time was a nice and comfy 2 minutes 7 seconds.

                  My last leg press was Dec 13th. That is four weeks between workouts.

                  • Had a bad night's sleep last night so I decided to skip this morning's workout. That in itself is mental training. Keep desiring to drop by the box tonight to makeup my missed workout. It's tough to take a day off because I feel like I am getting weaker because of it. Need to get over that. motivation is that tomorrow I will have fuel in the tank and can work harder.

                    edit: just awoke from a two hour nap. OOh baby let me at um. (tomorrow)

                    • I did some 1:2 walk:sprint intervals today. I'm just getting into sprints, so I'm doing them lighter but more often. This is alongside my usual assortment of light bodyweight exercising.

                            I do... Lyle Mcdonald wrote something on it awhile back. Basically said that having a long femur bone is not the most efficient for a squat, and should look into the leg press if squatting is too much trouble...

                            Today..SORE CHEST! And, quickie on the legs:
                            4x5 lunge at 90#
                            2x3 lunge at 95#

                            How is the weight on my lunge creeping up so close to the max (115#) of my squat??!
