  • My training today...

    Two hours of Kenpo-Jujitsu...nothing like a fist or club whizzing past your head to force you to focus the mind/body/spirit...!

      Well, we're actually going up for a 3 day climbing weekend, but those rocks sit on mountains, so we've got to get to them somehow!

      Thursday: REST. I am totally drained from 8 days straight of multi-hour outdoor activities coupled with celebrating a friend's recent promotion into the wee hours, many nights in a row. I'm going to get acupuncture for the second time in my life tonight. Not entirely sure where to ask them to stick the needles. Any thoughts?

        they know exactly where to stick the needles lol

        just tell them what you are looking for (stress relief, headache relief, relaxation, etc) and they will do their magic. ive been going to this guy who does the whole thing with this burning stone on your back and smell good herbs and all sorts of things along with accupuncture. also tells me about chinese element system, chi. its a trial and error with these places, dont stop looking until you find one that really cares about making you feel good and sets up a really nice athmosphere.

          • Todays workout will be 100% kettlebell work.

            Windmills to warm up, then it's on to the gruling snatch workout!
            I'll use a 52lb KB and do 10 reps L/R for 15 rounds. Goal is to decrease time
            each time I do the workout. This one is a killer, but works me from my toes to my head!!!

                • Aha! Vick, that does make sense... All of this bar fun is fairly new to my body, the body dips really set my triceps into shock for a few days... Today, my lats are DEFINITELY feeling it from all those inverted rows, which I've never really pushed myself at before... I suppose this is also why athletic trainings say that DOMS isn't always a good indicator of an effective, intense workout--it could easily just mean your body isn't adjusted to a particular exercise. Hmm...

                  Gini, what are you getting acupuncture for? I REALLY want to go back for my second time too, for back numbness.. Does your insurance cover it?

                      That's pretty much it.

                      DOMS really means that either you
                      a) have an abundance of lactic acid build-up
                      b) have a lot of micro trauma in the muscle
                      c) some happy combination of both.

                      Either way, none of those indicate progress. Sadly enough, some people still think it does. Most athletes make the best progress on programs where they rarely ever get sore, which is ideal.

                        I love the turkish getup! It's a great full body work out that really challenges your core. I also like kettleball swings, kettlebell sumo high pulls, and kettleball snatches. I think the biggest my gym has are 35#ers.

                        Well, I had originally bought a groupon for two sessions just because I wanted try it out. I have some stiffness in my right shoulder and left hip that I'll probably ask about.

                        • I sprinted rectangles around my backyard cutting like a running back at each corner, making my dog crazy with excitement and finished each one with a full speed dive into the pool then sprint/swam across it and back as fast as I could... 20 times. Is this a good imitation of evading a predator? The dog started joining me in the leap into the pool. God that was fun! Roger the next door neighbor is convinced I've gone insane. Whatever. He and his wife do Weight Watchers and worry about the giant hunks of flesh I grill several times a week

                          • Gini, how much is that putting you back? My insurance covers most of it, I just have a co-pay of about 35$. Kind of like my "treat". ;-)

                            Grol, my neighbors always look at me like I'm insane when I do those sort of workouts too! When I first moved in with my roommates, they used to just come out and watch me very confused as I performed lunges with a log over my head and lugged heavy tires across the lawn. They don't know what they're missing!! ;-)

                            Fury, what's wrong with your back man?

                            Workout this morning:
                            Round & Round Workout (thanks Godzilla!) ... I didn't find it to be a very cardio-demanding workout like I hoped it'd be, the most difficult part was the dive bomb push-ups and the ladders. Took me about a half hour.

                                It was $49 for two acupuncture sessions. Sounds like a great treat!
