Too hot out lately, makes me drag my ass. I meant to do something a little more structured... But is structure really that important???
walking/running/sprinting for 35 minutes, on a mission to get some B5!
dips and rows and slow chins and leg raises and other stuff for about 35 minutes or so.
I wonder if this is all... In vain... Is anything better than nothing?
Weighted pull ups: 45x5, 50x5, 55x5, 60x3, 60x2, 60x2
Weighted dips: 25x5, 45x5, 50x5, 60x3, 70x3, 70x3
12 x 100-yard sprints. Humidity makes air so thick here. Coughing a lot trying to recover.
56.8 mile ride, yes, in the drizzle half the time, outright rain in the infamous Puget Sound Convergence Zone for about 4 miles just north of Redmond. Such a lovely summer we've had hereabouts.

Lat pull down, and leg press. Next week is the final week for this protocol then time to switch it up.
Tabata - ring dips, burpees, jumping pullups, situps
I just read the book "Biomarkers. The 10 keys to prolonging vitality."
There isn't a whole lot new in the book, but what I find is that planning my exercise and diet routines to support these biomarkers makes a lot of sense.
Some days, nothing can be better than something.
Thanks, Vick. What are these biomarkers?... My new "goal" is to get damn good with those monkey bars. Youtube "Bar-Barians" and you'll see what I mean. ;-)
Today was really tough. I wanted to make it to five circuits, but was literally screaming at three. I'm wondering why... Am I too low on calories? Not enough sleep?
5 Negative Pull-ups (10sec descent, compared to 5sec last week)
15 One-Legged Squats, touch lower hamstring to the bench each time
6 "Beginner-Planche" Push-ups, basically a push-up with my hands tucked close to my hips
15 Bulgarian Split Squats
30sec. Static Leg Raise/Tucks
I am freaking ravenous. Do you think strength-training like this gives the same benefit as NOT doing it supersetted? For example, completing all three sets of my pull-ups in one go? Does superseting give "too much" recovery time? Hmmm hm hmm...
The bar-barians is cool.
3-basal metabolic rate
6-body's blood sugar tolerance
10-body's ability to regulate its internal temperature.
For me personally, this has reinforced my thinking of working out once a week to stimulate muscle growth, then the rest of the week is designed to improve my blood pressure, etc.
My trip to a bod pod was interesting. My lean mass is 141.8 lbs and fat mass was 45.8. lbs. A year ago I weighed 234 lbs.
Rest Day today
Biked for about a total of 20 minutes to/from work and bank.
Ran around with the soccer ball at the park for about 30 minutes. Best sport ever!
