Two or three days per week (sometimes 4) I spend about an hour or two (sometimes 3) taking turns on a Slackline. This is the most fun core workout I have ever seen! I have never sweat so much standing still. There are numerous ways to get huge benefit using the line. Besides standing and walking on the line, you can sit, do push-ups, jump start, arm press, walk backward, and do yoga poses (super core workouts!). We've been doing Slackline two and a half months now, and we love it!

TRAINING – WORKOUT B
Deadlift (1x10x65) (1x5x77.5) (1x5x90) (1x5x100)
Squat (5x55) (5x60) (2x5x65) (2x5x70)
Today I did I 100kg (220lb) deadlift! Sounds like nothing compared to some of the other lifters in here, but for me it's a pretty big achievement - I've spent months trying to get my form right, and finally got it down.
Though this time my form wasn't perfect - it was a three rep max and I kinda nearly went down on the third - all sets before it were, and I feel awesome for doing it.
I've been pretty bad at posting, and it helps me to do so.
Today (solo workout)
Deadlifts: 10x55, 8x105, 5x115, 3x125
Sled drag: 200 meters at 45lbs, 200m at 70lbs, 200m at 80 lbs
Apparently I don't really get the concept of "active recovery"...
