Decided to do a custom workout under my garage.
Started with push ups and pull ups off a wooden beam - 20 push ups followed by 5 pull ups, which lowered to 3 pull ups per 20 until I couldn't do any more. Didn't count the sets. Prooooooobably should have.
Then I decided to make use of my environment and do a custom weight workout for muscles that could be applied practically. Filled a couple of bags with wood and worked my shoulders, lifting them up to the side of my head for 5 sets of 10. Ouch. Then did some custom deadlifts with the wood chopping block - basically by lifting it up, holding, then lowering. Again: ouch. Then I managed to find a wooden bar. Not sure what it was doing there, but hey, there it was. So I attached the two bags previously used to either side, added a bit more wood per bag and performed 5 sets of 10 squats. OOOOOOOUCH.
This was followed by a hasty stumble upstairs and the downing of a weakly made Paleo-protein shake (doing Whole30 this month - no Whey allowed, and had short time) of two egg whites, a banana and some strawberries. This was followed quickl by a big ass meal of portobello steak mushroom burgers and a whopping bowl of sweet potato fries - using the leftover yolk as an oil.
Wow. Gotta say, right now, body is aching. Gonna feel that tommorow. But at the same time... Damn, I feel awesome.
Fifth Degree Black Belt test - that is all....
Finally have a new workout routine after moving and losing my city. 15 minute bike ride on hills to a gated community playground, arm work and push-ups, ride back. It sounds so simple, but it's awesome and very taxing. Takes about 45 minutes. I'm not going to try categorizing it. It's my exercise. I can control the intensity easily. I'm going to do it every other day on my days off weather/family/other BS permitting.
Traveling and staying w family. Jumped on the deck did a Burpee ladder and invisible Fran w squats and push-ups
My husbands family lives in a cute beachside community w TONS of hills. We ran to a local park. Did pull-ups, lunges and push-ups ..ran back uphill to his house. Killer
7K barefoot run in the morning.
Deadlifts during lunch time. 255 lbs, personal best.
And here's my EXCITING NEWS! For the very first time in 5 YEARS, I JUMPED up from a squatting position, over a plank and onto the other side. This is groundbreaking for me as I have a severely herniated disc that has just started to heal since going primal. And I believe it's finally healing because I have reduced inflammation of the body through restricting wheat, oils, genetically modified foods and sugar.[/QUOTE]
Great stuff! Keep it going.
Finally i did some assisted muscle ups. On a low bar with a bit of push from legs. My goal is to do one unassisted muscle up before the end of this year.
