Placeholder.

*Insert witty, and/or insightful text here.*

One of my goals in life is to attend one of those, and to win my matches:

I'd say, time to get in some serious shape.

Not quite Yoga...

So, finally, over one month after I initially had wanted, I finally started.

When I have not trained in a while, like now, what I do is this strange routine, part yoga, part planking, part karate warm-up, part Naudi-Aguilar-esque functional patterns, for a day, or two, until I feel comfortable putting stress on my muscles and joints. Not sure how effective this really is, but experience has shown these strange antics keep me from getting injured as lightly as some of my friends usually get.

Started 0015, will finish around 0200. Yepp, still on it, but I am taking this as slow as possible.

Will go to bed when I feel all the muscles in my back, and especially around my spine, not earlier. Geez, me old.

Preliminary thoughts on my training routine:

(Not for any esteemed reader, but so I keep track of the thread.)

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=70163&p=949472#p949472

Will start with this one tomorrow, or the day after, depending on what my body tells me. Geez, did I mention I feel old?

Another round of NQY...

Not-Quite-Yoga. Finished well, took me only 35 mins this time, and I felt well at the end, as opposed to *gaaah, I am broken*, as I felt yesterday. Warmed up well, stretched well. I am now fit for bigger tasks, or so I hope! :)

At the Midnight Hour

Very slow, very smooth workout. Started this session at 0030, after an 18-hour workday. No fun, but I need to get back into the game.


15 Mins warmup with one Escrima stick, emphasis on lower backhand stricking. Kind of my gimmick, don't tell anyone. :mozilla_wink:

5 Mins and 10 Mins with 2kg (5 lbs) clubbells. My lower arms are cramping already. :mozilla_wink:

5 Mins with one stick, again. Because relaxing fun.

10 Min bullshit planking exercises on the parallel bars. I have all the necessary tools, I just don't use them well enough.

More tomorrow. Got to sleep now, have to be up at eight, or the day will suck.

A Well-Deserved Pause...

I took it. Had been working non-stop for about 110 days. Time to cool off.
Back to working out, now.

7x3x15 with dumbbells, 15 kg.

10 Min Warmup with Medicine Ball 2kg.
Classic Squats 15, 15, 15.
Calf squats 15, 15, 15.
Circle Lunches (FUCK ME THAT HURT) 10, 15, 15.

A bit of cold sweat after that, testament to my lazy days in general, and not eating well today, in particular.

So, went 5 Min with the Medicine Ball 2kg, to decompensate.

Overhead Press 10, 10, 10.
One-Hand Push Press 2x 12, 12, 12.

5 Min Medicine Ball.

Total WO Time: 35 Min.

Overall Verdict: Mixed. Too slow, of course, and my cardio is abysmal.

First good training, yay, yay...

Didn't train on Tuesday, too busy.

Trained together with a pal, D, on Wednesday, with Indian clubbells, cardio-heavy, for about 140 mins.

D, heavier, but smaller than me, bit on the chubby side. He and I share the same training philosophy, though, which is, "health first", as opposed to overdoing stuff. Especially with kettlebells, clubbells, and medicine balls, you got to be so damn careful, or your will hurt yourself, or even someone else. Too many idiots clowning around with these.

Did ten endurance sets a ten mins, with 2kg clubbells, and two min breaks in between. Not terribly exhausting, but a start.

On shaky legs...

20 mins of shadowboxing, 20 mins of working with light sticks.
Bad session, because I finished with my knee hurting like a mofo, and my recently broken little toe also giving me signals of pain.

Got to take it slow, it seems. Will likely begin my running routine again next week; that should be the real stress test for my legs, I guess.
