    @Stabby, outdoor workouts always kick my ass harder too!
    @Godzilla, that a joke? ;-)

    Today... Hour-long hike up a mountain, and another two hours shopping. I got a new backpack. :-) In black corduroy... Classy!

    Actually, I am not doing a bodybuilding routine ... I am just lifting weights ... since I workout alone at home, so I can't go to my actual max (no spotter and I don't want to die). When I do have a spotter, the weight increases a lot and adjust the rest days accordingly. I have been doing this for about a year (started with 2on-1rest-3on-1rest day pattern but I found that life/work/kids/etc got in the way of the 'on' days which bumped rest days), and I have not noticed any muscle or joint issues which are always my primary concern (injuries suck). The increases in the lbs are not as dramatic as a powerlifting or bodybuilding routine, but they do come but at a slower pace. AntonG, thank you for your concern, and I will update if anything changes.

    6 hours of hiking in the forest
    Weightlifting at the gym this evening... upper body routine (8* sets each of: bench press, military press, curls, skull crushers, some other random freeweight exercises that probably have names that I don't know)

    *includes 2 warmup sets at a lower weight ... the other 6 sets are done at whatever weight I can do 5-8 reps at)
    Subduction leads to orogeny

    My blog that I don't update as often as I should: http://primalclimber.blogspot.com/

    5.14 km run in my Vibram Sprints (I usually don't do chronic cardio anymore, but I'm running a 5k on Sunday and needed to train in my Vibrams), followed by 2 sets of 30 two-hand kettlebell swings, 3 sets of 10 tricep dips, 2 sets of 10 pushups, 50 bicycle crunches, 5 assisted pullups and 5 assisted chinups (one foot on washing machine as I pull myself up on the basement plumbing pipes).

    The kettlebell swings were an attempt to do the 3x100 + TGUs challenge posted recently (I usually do kettlebell intervals), but I could only make it to 30 swings on a 20-lb bell before my form started to crap out. So now my challenge is to work up to 100 swings. Goals are good.

    Possibly 60-minute hot yoga class tonight, have to see how much work I get done today.

    I was short on time today, so i did a quick circuit of tire flips, sprints, and pushups. 10 rounds with no rest in between.

    @Vick, how long does that take you man? :-P

    Love the quickies... 40sec work/10sec rest
    Dynamic Squat (touch ground and reach high)
    Sumo PushUp (lift one arm and turn to side after each push-up, alternating arms)
    One-Leg Bridge (left then right)
    One-Leg Burpee (left then right)
    Prisoner Get-up
    Tricep Leg Lifts (brutal...)
    Repeat 3x = 20min. of HIIT!

    My reps averaged about the same as Zuzanna's. Sweet! I kick ass!! Hahaha

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    10 hours of working retail (I believe that counts for long slow walking.)

    and a 30 minute workout of high rep/low weight lifting w/ 10lb dumbbells (makes me realize how much more I enjoy heavy lifting...probably won't be doing that again)
    The pain of discipline or the pain of regret? You choose.

    Oh look - I made a Journal.
