  • Find out when a group is planting a community or charity garden in your area. I was on mulch duty today. Talk about shovelglovin' Although not the same I got a 2 hour shoveling workout, not to mention carrying the baskets of mulch all over the garden.

    • I've still got 2 yards left to mulch tomorrow. My back kills when I'm done. Although my recoveries from it have been fast.

        • I tried some more primal-style exercises today. I walked down to the lake near my apartment, found a nice big, open field, and did:

          3 vigorous rounds of Surya Namaskar A
          5-6 burpees
          5 sprints (maybe 50yds each?)
          30 sec. plank
          15-20 sec. each side planks
          5 more burpees
          10 Grok squats
          5 more sprints
          30 seconds plank
          15-20 sec. side planks
          10 modified pushups
          10 more Grok squats

          Then I walked the rest of the way around the lake, lazed in a field for a bit, did some stretching, including some backbends, and then walked home.

                    • Did some heavy lifting in the gym this morning, but its hockey night in Canada tonight!! The stands may be empty, and I pay to play instead of getting paid, but I'm pumped anyway just to be on the ice.

                      And yes I know its summer, but I play at 10:30 at night so the suns down anyway.

                          5 minutes of alternating 1 pull-up + 1 push-up

                          • Did some convict conditioning today. Followed that up with some super slow weighted chin-ups and then a few assisted one-armed chins on each side.

                            @Jess - if you have some sturdy door frames you can do fingertip pullups to help aid you when you hit the indoor climbing gyms in Maine!

                            • Kettlebells! I use a 50lb and a 35 lb bell.

                              Windmills (5x5)
                              keeping the 50lb over my body and lifting the 35 lb bell on the move up
                              Squats (5x5)
                              with both kettlebells
                              Military Press (5x5 for each hand)
                              lift the 50lb
                              Kettlebell swings (150 total)
                              Turkish get up (5 per each side with 50 lbs)
                              Bench press (5 x 5 for each hand with 50 lbs)
                              Figure 8 (5 x 5 with 50 lbs)

                              takes about 30 minutes to complete. Its a heck of a workout.

                              • @Cerebelum, 50 and 35lbs?? I can imagine it's tough! ;-)


                                I'm trying the LeanGains 16/8 eating pattern, surprisingly it didn't effect my performance this morning...
                                ~40min. P90X shoulders & arms (10#)

                                + Trying something new...The 30sec. was just one rep, extremely slow, without breaking the contraction... Ouch!
                                30sec. left one-armed row (20#)
                                30sec. right one-armed row
                                30sec. push-up
                                30sec. chair dips
                                Repeat 4x, no rest
