Wednesday go hard or go home Workout


Hump day I was feeling a little sluggish but I knew that I had to get a good workout in to set a tone for the rest of the week. I told myself to go as hard as I can today. It started with Aerobic work like a boss. Hoped on the treadmill and ran for 45 min interval run. 10.5 mph for work pace and 3.6 for resting pace. Felt pretty good afterwards so I decided to do some low level plyometrics to mix up my work out a little bit. I am slowly changing my workout to include more power work. I think it will help me with the obstacles that I have to do in the toughmudder coming up in February. Afterward I moved to my Stretching and mobility work to allow my body some rest before I hit the weights pretty hard. I wanted to see if I can make myself sore from lifting. It was something I haven’t felt in a while I am starting to switch up the exercises that I do to keep my body on its toes. So we will see how it goes.

Tuesday “Feeling good” Workout


Feeling pretty good as I walked into the gym today. There was a lot more people than usual. but it is getting ready to be that time of the year again with people and their new years resolution. There is a like a large influx of people that come with the New years resolution to get in better shape and lose the excess baggage. If that is your new years resolution then pursue it wholeheartedly. But usually that drive last maybe a month and a lot of people lose motivation and stop coming to the gym. One thing I have learned is that it takes a lot of effort to make changes to your body and you shouldn’t be discouraged if it doesn’t happen immediately. Just stick with the program and everything will be fine.  Now my workout was mostly just aerobic work seeing as my Tuesday and Thursdays are my light workout days.  Just some aerobic work and stretching to make sure everything is loose and  limber nothing too difficult. Still trying to get used to the new speed increase may take me  the rest of this week. I’ve also lost 5 more lbs this week so the workout and changes in my diet are working

Aerobic work  
Treadmill running                                                                50 mins

Monday “Getting back in Rhythm” workout


Oh the Christmas Holiday has come and past and I hoped that everyone has had a great Holiday spending good time with family and friends. Now it is time to get back into the swing of things and to starting climbing the mountain once again. Two days off from working out will do your body good but I usually like to work myself back into working out slowly. Usually peaking with my hardest workout usually later in the week. Even still I did feel great coming into this workout with no aches or pains. Since the last workout I decided that I needed to increase my work speed on my workouts so now the minimum speed will be 10 mph.  So now I will be moving a a 6 mile pace which in relative terms of speed its not really fast. Most people can run faster than 10mph but it is a matter of sustaining that speed which will be the goal. Since it is an increase I decided to cut my time down to 30mins and work my way back to 60 mins.  Stretching and mobility  work is the same I am still on working on hip and ankle mobility along with shoulder and thoracic spine mobility.  I definitely feel that it is helping me become more limber.  I haven’t had any aches and pains and I feel good overall.  Lifting I decided it was time to switch up some exercise in my work to make me more explosive.

Words of Wisdom


Remember that man created method and not that method created man, and do not strain yourself in twisting into someone’s preconceived pattern, which unquestionably would be appropriate for him, but not necessarily  for you….. In order to control myself I must first accept myself  by going with and not against my nature. Everybody has to think for himself. A right way for big man may not be a right way for a small man. A right way for someone who is slow may not be a right way for someone who is quick. Each person must understand his weaknesses and his strengths

‘Wednesday ” I am back” Workout December 21, 2011


I am feeling great. It has been four days that I have been under the weather. So to finally feel normal it feels great. I decided to share my new found energy and spirit. In the interval run I decided to go with a 3:1 work to rest ratio to see how far along my conditioning  1:30 work time  with a 30 second rest period.  Now you’re probably thinking that hey that is shorter than the usually  2 minutes work ratio. But you have to remember your rest period has been cut in half in comparison.  So instead of resting for a full minute between your work pace you only get 30 seconds. Now it is very important  that you keep that in mind because for the last two weeks you have had more rest time. So pay attention to the clock and keep on pace with the 30 seconds rest period.

Treadmill                                                                           45 mins

Tuesday ” still with the flu” Workout


Tuesday was a light day consisting of shooting the basketball going through basketball drills some days I like to mix it up and not do the same thing day in and day out.  So after playing a little basketball I went on to do some major stretching and foam rolling.  It is very important to keep your muscles and tendons limber. Unfortunately I haven’t found and article supporting that being flexible  decreases your chances of injury. but I am still early in my reading and research.
