                  • Backs ( sciatica) is still a bit niggly, the calve muscle is still sore but slowly getting better, so tonight's workout was

                    10 mins joint mobility, inversion table and light stretching
                    3 mins light kettlebell (12kg) work to grease the groove felt good so moved into
                    5 mins of two hand swings (25 kg bell) on a 15:15 protocol ( 15 secs work followed by 15 secs rest)
                    5 mins of one snatches with 16 kg bell alternating sides on the 15:15 protocol
                    repeat the swings and snatch two more times for total of three rounds (30 mins total)

                    Took it easy and didn't push the speed stopped when the snatches started to get a bit loose, otherwise I typically do this for 40 mins as per Viking warrior conditioning protocol.

                    Then finished with a front plank straight to wall chair holding each for a minute, repeated 4 times each. *Then into some static pull up hangs which is holding the pull up position with chin to the bar for as long as possible (20 - 30 secs in my case). Finished off with inversion table and light stretching and back bends. *Might do some yoga after dinner before bed.

                        • It sucks being banned from all these great workouts I see by my crampy legs.

                          Bicycle ride in the sun to the park.
                          Hanging leg lifts, L-sits, drawing circles with my pointed feet, etc. ad-lib throughout my day, almost every day.
                          Haven't sprinted in too long. Chest pains and a story I saw about damaged chordae tendinae have me too scared to do it again.
                          Curl freeweights, 55 pounds per arm, 3x3
                          Many push-ups and chin-ups, and one-armed orangutan swings on the rings at the park.
                          Hand-over-hand forward-facing bar work, back and forth. More monkey business.
                          Basically, I can kill my arms all I want, they cannot cramp - and even if they ever did, I'd still be able to walk. So I do.

                          One armed chin-ups, 1x2 yesterday. None today, just the monkey stuff.

                            - 1 pull-up
                            - 10 pushups (started with diamond pushups but that got too hard after set 3 so I did regular pushups)
                            Subduction leads to orogeny

                            My blog that I don't update as often as I should:
