    most of what i do still revolves around the same basic movements, I'll just kind of mix and match things. I just built myself a sandbag, so I'm starting to play with new things, but I'm planning on only using it to supplement the things I already do. Staples include pushups(several variations), pullups, squats and planks.

    I need to fix my damn sandbag. Until I do, it's the same: SimpleFit.

    i'm on week 8 of starting strength, same 2 workouts over and over - and i have no problem with it
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

    I mix it up alot without overtraining a specific muscle group. I try to stick to compound movements and variations of them. I have really been training instinctively lately meaning I will not plan a workout but instead do what my body feels like doing, unless that means overtraining a specific muscle group. Sometimes a will deadlift heavy, but low reps. Other times light weight, high reps. Sometimes Tabatas, sometimes a crossfit workout. I love being outside and I absolutely love doing stair workouts where I will climb say 10 flights of stairs and then at the top bust out as many burpees or pushups that I can and then recover descending the stairs and then repeat. I am a firefighter and that is an awesome job specific workout. Anyway, sorry for rambling on. You guys get me fired up here, lol, love this website,love being Primal. Grok on!!

    I still do CrossFit twice a week...usually from the HQ main page. Which is constantly varied. I also do a typical CrossFit dynamic warm up before, which includes lots of air squats, pull ups, and push ups (plus handstand walks, jumping rope, bear crawls, and cartwheels).

    But I make sure that at least twice a week I hit either heavy dead lifts, back squats, overhead squats, cleans, and snatches (5 x 5) (if they are not already a part of the WoD).

    I did a 12 week cycle of strength training. I do strength training once a week. Every week progressed. I either increased in time or weight. When I failed to increase... I changed my routine by decreasing the number of exercises per week.

    For me... my best routine is to do resistance training once a week. I do one upper body routine a week and a leg press every week for weight loss.

    Any exercise I do besides that is for what I have coming up as a personal event. For example... this weekend my wife and I plan on skating the Rideau Canal... weather permitting. For the past six weeks we have been skating at least once a week in preparation.

    Does that make sense?
