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

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.

Wednesday Workout December 7, 2011


Wednesday Workout
This is my own personal workout I am currently training myself for a 11 miles Mud Run which will take place in February
Today was distance running I am not a very strong endurance runner so at least twice a week I am working on increasing my aerobic capacity. I also added a Kettle bell circuit to work on my muscular endurance.  I usually don’t like to do a lot of  steady state aerobic work but for now I need to condition my body to be able to moving for a long periods of time  The current research states that if you want to build VO2 max interval training is better than steady state aerobic work.  Athletes for the most part prefer interval training it keeps the person occupied it gives a lot of change rather than a keeping a single pace.  The main focus was to mentally train myself that I can run a long  distance without stopping.
5.5 miles at 8-9 min mile pace
15-20 minutes Stretching and mobility work to keep myself as flexible as possible
3 rounds of Kettle bell circuit

Kettle bell one arm swings(alternating arms)          1 min
Kettle bell one arm Clean and Press( alternating)  1 min
Renegade rows one arm( 10 reps then switch)        1 min
Goblet front squats with Kettle bell                              1 min
Complete all the exercises and Rest for                       2-3 mins

Afterwards finish with Cycling for                                 10 mins
This workout took me about                                            1 hour 45 mins
