Yesterday was my off day and I needed it. I took my dog for a short walk/run in the park. She's almost 12, so she isn't as spry as she used to be. Later in the day I hit the punching bag for a few minutes.
Today I did my squat, deadlift, and bench press per Starting Strength. Since I'm just starting out, I wasn't totally burned, so I threw in some lat pull down, barbell curls, tricep pull downs, chest press machine drop sets, decline sit-ups, decline bench press, calf raises, and forearm twists. Also practiced my military shoulder press and clean with a naked barbell.
This is my first off weekend in Starting Strength. I went to the city park with my little brothers and did the fitness trail. Total of 1.83 miles with "exercise stations" every tenth of a mile. Mostly climbing, stretching, and balance. Not much of a workout. I ran or sprinted between each station, did a few push-ups. It was just nice to get some blood flowing to my sore muscles haha
Yesterday was a rest day. I usually make the weekend my heavier barbell days, but I've spent the last two days interviewing candidates for the next head football coach at our school, so all the sitting has made me a wreck. Figured CST style workout better for today:
Divebomber Push Ups x 10
Vee Ups x 10
TRX Rows x 10
Sledghammer Strikes x 10 each side
TRX Pistols x 10
Pull Ups x 10
Dips x 10
Medicine Ball Slams x 10
Jump Ropes x 50
Kettlebell Snatches x 10 each side
24" Box Jumps x 10
