  • I am always just greasing the groove lately. Lots of dips, bar hangs, leg lifts, whatever you call holding two 50-pound weights and going from a squat to stand to curl to pushing them straight up over your head, reverse repeat 5X, shrug a few times, put weights down.

    • This was last evening, not today, but what the heck:

      600 pushups
      200 situps
      25 minutes of jump rope

      Is twenty-five minutes of jump rope every three days too much cardio?

              • I am doing the Memorial Day Murph next Saturday (a military charity fundraiser), so decided to do a little taste of it this morning. I ran a mile on the treadmill and then did 6 sets of a scaled Cindy workout. For me this was 6 rounds of 25 squats, 15 TRX racked rows (rather than pullups) and 10 pushups. This added up to right at one-half of the full Murph workout - although I didn't run another mile at the end as I should have.

                Riding my bike tomorrow morning early, I had planned to this morning but the incorrect weather forecast sent me to the gym. No matter, I had needed to test my rehabbing shoulder with the above workout anyway just to make certain that it is up for the challenge next weekend. It is

                              • Broke my plateau with deadlift finally. Just needed a week off it looks like cause when I went at it fresh seemed like I coulda done more weight. Gonna try to break 300 for a 5 rep set in the next 4-6 weeks. It's definitely my weakest link so I'm keen to keep hitting it hard, but thats a double edge sword as it seems I've been not spacing the workout enough to recover completely.
