5 elevation 45 resistance.

Friday rode my bike 4 miles.  The cold kicked my ass.

Sunday, today I moved furniture.  I might go to martial arts tonight too.  Depends how I feel mentally and physically.

Apparently it's been a while since I've posted.  No surprise.  I was busy moving and started a new job.
The 2 week crazynado is over. 

10-11-13 Sunday

Unfortunately I was on call and didn't get to finish my workout.

Jumping jacks: 100,50,50,50
Push ups:         15,15,20
straight leg sit ups: 20,25,25
squats:  20
Lunges:  15, 20

Next time I'll try harder to finish 5 sets.

I also finally bought a yoga dvd that should arrive at the end of this week.
I plan to do this every morning as long as I'm not too sleep deprived.

Namaste yoga is the only series I've enjoyed.

Looks like it's been a while since I've posted.  Work has kept me too busy and sleep deprived to workout regularly. 

I hurt my back on Thanksgiving messing around with lever progressions.  It wasn't the progression itself but doing something else that f#cked me up.  I pulled and strained my traps and lats pretty bad.  I even had to go to the chiropractor twice because my shit was all messed up.  Everything is better now except my right rhomboid major and maybe some other small muscles in that area.  I still haven't worked my upper body since that day.


Sunday 15 Dec 2013
Did a difficult sparring session where we take turns standing in the ring and fight one person after another.  I took a minor injury from that.  Throwing a hook while stepping to the side I was caught by a punch that shifted my body's momentum in a different direction than what my shoulder wanted.   Was finally able to go to the chiropractor for that yesterday, which was when he finished fixing my back alignment.  The shoulder still hurts to use full ROM or pick up some things.  Though I think it'll be better by next week.  Took so long getting it fixed so my recover was set back by that.


Unknown date in Dec 2013
I don't remember the workout dates but I've been focusing mainly on my legs and a little on my abs since Thanksgiving.
I've been doing plyometrics going up 4 flights of stairs.

I watched almost human, the episode where they made 24 flights of stairs seem like a big deal.
So for my workout my warm up was walking up24 flights of stairs followed by sets of plyo.
Every step
Every two
Every three
Every Four
then going back down, 3, 2, 1.

Saturday 21 Dec 2013
ab ball crunches 20,20
Leg raises:  20,20
Side planks: 40/40sec 40/40
ab vacuums:  40, 45
2 sets of going up all the stairs
the ladder plyo of doing every 1,2,3,4,3,2,1 steps (1 & 4 are the hardest)
Finally I did two sets of sprints, 2 every step, 2 every other step.

Apparently it's been a while since I've posted.

Back on thanksgiving I jacked up my back.  Later I jacked up my shoulder sparring.
My back is better, my shoulder has been obnoxiously slow to heal.  For a while I was going to the chiropractor twice a week.


During this time I hit up my core and legs to the point that I jacked up my hamstrings.
They're still kinda jacked.  The muscles are really tight so I've mostly drifted from strength or endurance training for yoga and stretching.


Last week I've finally been able to do big boy push ups again.

Needless to say my upper and lower body is pretty weak right now.  At least my core is still decent...for the most part.


Biking I have a hard time hitting even 2 miles now.  My legs are so gassed afterwards.

Obviously I skipped the biannual physical test this month.

I'm still very hesitant to put heavy weight in my right hand.  Don't need the strain to the shoulder.

I'm still alive!

I did 40 whole push ups today!

I did 1 or 2 sets of ab vacuum for 45 seconds each

I did various types of lunges between 15-25 each leg (seemed like a lot more when I was doing them).

2 sets of 10 good morning with a 5 gallon container of water

The majority of my workout was a series of footwork drills/ladder work.

I really am still doing stuff...off and on.

Today I did what is basically a dead lift and clean n press with a 5 gallon water container.  1 set of 50 reps.

For whatever reason I decided to participate in Ramadan.  Though I eat breakfast about an hour after sunrise.  I'm not getting up early for that.  I also drink water through out the day.

The other day I hit a new best for the plank.  2:02 seconds.  I thank the aid of a yoga mat.  The extra grip really helped.

I've also been doing a new series of lunges  heres a video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAfEGsJqJjA

So guess what my dumb ass did?  yep blew out my left knee again.

I was doing box jumps in a sand pit.  Returning to the ground is when it happened.  As such I'm blaming this on the sand.  I figured this would happen when jumping from the sand.  oh well this time it isn't nearly as bad as the others.

This sucks, I can't remember the last time my legs felt so solid.

So since then my knee got better.

I took up soccer in the late summer and fall. (mildly hurt my left knee twice over 2 months)


My right shoulder is getting better but still feels...not 100%

So much has happened since my last post.  *sigh*
Half of it good at least.

So I guess it happened in February or March.  Due to malnutrition or some other cause, I would be sore from any amount of exercise for days up to two weeks.
I decided to ignore how sore I was and pushed a workout.  It was going great.  I did sprints, goblet squats and several other exercises.  Well on an evil fluke, near the end of my workout I was reaching for a db for the last set on one of the exercises and felt a sudden and sharp pain in my back.
I immediately stopped and laid on my back to rest it.  After a few minutes I did a full body stretch and felt fine.  I thought it was no biggie because that area had mildly hurt off and on over the past few weeks.   Well this time was different.  After lying down to bed the pain came back in force.  I couldn't find any pose that didn't hurt like hell.  I was up all night and in the morning went to the chiropractor. 

Months later my lower back still isn't 100%.  I can do most things just fine but when the back gets fatigued it starts to ache.  If I try to dead lif 180lbs or more it really hurts.  I've slowly found exercises that seems to help it.  Good morning and romanian dead lifts seem to work the best.  Except for the run and lifts, it shouldn't be an issue.

On the bright side my shoulder is 100% better and more flexible than before I hurt it.
My knees are better but I wouldn't say 100%.  I still have to be careful with them.  I bought a pair of knee sleeves for some extra support.  Other than getting sore from going up and down stairs too much I haven't had an issue.


Tomorrow is my physical readiness test.

I think I'll do shit on most categories.  I'll do the best I can and see were I'm at.

I was working too much to do my physical test in September.  I'm working around 16 hours less now so I might be able to do one this month.

the other day I did around 5-7 sets of squats.

A day later I did assisted pull ups and inverted rows.

I was going to do yoga today but I didn't.  I'm getting really restless at work now so I'll try to sneak in some leg exercises.
