    Checking in Grouchy. Sorry to hear about the tendon tear but glad to see you are still able to get some running in, and at respectable times too. Hopefully you’ll be back at full strength in no time.

    Thanks Trent. Doubly frustrating as we just found a great new gym and I was supposed to pick up the barbell again. Hopefully by Friday I get the thumbs up.

    hey grouchy, really impressed with all the work going on in here. back in my old personal training days, i had the chance to train two professional baseball players. they looked at me (all 120lbs of me at the time) with a slight snicker. my boss watched the workout, and when it was all done, he called all the trainers over and pointed at me and said what an impressive job i'd done with the baseball players and how impressed he was that i got them both to take knees early on. what was the first thing we did to show them i don't f around in my training sessions? dead pulls. pullup, control down, hang five seconds, pullup, control down, hang five seconds.

    i couldn't do them but i could make THEM do 'em!! yeah. i am evil somewhere deep inside.

    hope you get the all-clear this friday.

    Some of the hardest workouts that I have ever been a part of have either been led or created by folks who are generally good hearted and nice overall. One of my old platoon sergeants was like a dad to everyone, never swore, and he was always willing to lend an ear. Yet during PT sessions he would absolutely kill us. One of his favorite warm-up exercises was eight count bodybuilders, and you could expect to do at least 50 of them as part of it. We would “cool down” with those too. We were on temporary duty in Arizona and it was too hot to run outside so we did a “light workout” of 1000 of those among other exercises. He was brutal.

    Today - Easy 10 minute run followed by two rounds of treadmill Tabata sprints at 2%, speed approx 80% VO2 max. Need to increase speed next time, this wasn’t bad at all.

    I was going to run 7 today. Yesterday afternoon I saw there was an 8.1 mile race for today so I decided what the heck, let’s do this. Finished in about 1:23 and had a great time.

    Officially cleared for all barbell work so let’s do this. Started in a great new gym after last place unfortunately closed doors. Starting light to prevent any back/bicep aggravation so comfortable and painless work sets is the goal. Power cleans 95, bench 105, squats 155.

    Undecided about bench, felt a bit on the last set. Three is definitely too long - my goal today was knock out the lifts, do some TGUs, and then some low impact cardio until the top of the hour. I was pushing it a bit for the last two. Going to get presses and front squats a whirl Friday.

    Do you ever workout or run with your boys? My 18 year old lifts but he actually prefers to lift by himself. I'm just happy that he lifts, but he has no interest in cardio of any form.

    We take hikes together and I will lead them in some workouts at home from time to time. Yesterday they did 10 rounds of 1 pull up, 3 push ups, and 5 squats which they really liked. They both take MMA and are starting new sports (youngest baseball, oldest golf) so they are active guys.

    That's great and reminds me of something that Jim Dobson said many years ago: "Kids spell 'love' T*I*M*E!" You have to spend time with them!

    Thanks Trent. Just trying right now to feel out what feels good and what aggravates my myriad of injuries. Today was pretty stellar though.

    Yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of where I lost some friends. Strange how fast time flies sometimes…

    Strength training today. Clean and presses with 105, squats with 165, then knocked out five Turkish getups per hand with the 16kg.

    Rucksack interval training. 30# rucksack, 2% incline on treadmill. Warmed up with an easy 10 minute walk and then two Tabata circuits of ruck shuffles at 5.5 mph, rested two minutes in between circuits.

    During active duty? I've known several veterans and several who saw action. The only story that I've ever been told by any of them was by wife's grandpa during WWII. He said the Germans were "so close that I was convinced they'd HEAR my heartbeat!"

    Regarding how time flies, the daughter that I carried in a backpack while I cut grass 20-21 years ago is due to give birth to our first granddaughter ("Payton Grace") any day now

    Line of duty, yes.

    20190406:
    Helped out with a youth lock-in last night so needless to say I did not get a lot of sleep. My youngest had baseball practice in the morning and then we played at the playground for a while. After a quick afternoon nap I wanted to blow the stink off so I did some sandbag work.

    Quick warm-up of about 5 minutes and then I did 30-20-10 of thrusters, bag of body parts, and rows with a 45# bag in about 12 minutes. Short but sweet.

    **Clean and Press - 105 for 3x5 (first two warm up sets were squat clean each rep, work sets were clean once and then press).
    **Back Squats - 165 for 3x5.
    **Pinch Grip Farmers Walks - 25# bumper plate per hand, walk until I can’t hold on any longer. 2 rounds.
    **TGUs - 5 reps per arm with 16kg.

    Some quick interval training this PM.

    EDIT: Ruck interval training. 5.6mph training speed, 2% incline, total 26 minutes and just over 2 miles

    SE. 5 rounds of neutral grip (for now) pull-ups and one arm swings with the 16kg to start. A mere 5 (taking things slow with the biceps) and 100 total swings.

    Then sandbag work. Four 1 minute rounds, rest 1 minute, repeat circuit three times, count up total reps. Side straddle hops (subbed these for a run/row, did not count reps), sandbag push up to drag, sandbag alternating rear lunges (one circuit on each shoulder then once on back), and kettlebell around the worlds. 45# sandbag and 12kg kettlebell. Total reps 150.

    Short run after, nothing exciting.

    Max strength work. Clean and press 110, back squat 175, pinch grip farmers walk, Turkish get ups.

    Finished with a 1000m row at a humbling 4:36. I went way too fast out of the gate and really underestimated this. I’m excited to have a rower available though so I plan to take advantage of it.

    They suck, horribly, but I can. You usually start off with decent form but as you go you can’t help take a knee getting off of the floor eventually. It’s also a good gear test - if you don’t have everything cinched down you can end up clobbering yourself with the weight.

    Impressed with the ruck-burpees...no burpees are allowed in my gym


    I am thinking of getting a sandbag or two for my gym for post lifting conditioning WODs.

    Not even sure what to look at, for what they are they seem awfully expensive especially if I buy from brand name ones.

    I seen some DIY articles, also there is a gym in the city that is getting rid of their inventory of 30 and 50lb sacks, they have multiple handles. The feedbag ones look interesting as well, but the regular style I could probably perform feed sack carrys anyway. If you have any suggestions let me know.

    From the looks of things all is well in here!

    We got ours as a gift, it’s a FitSh!t 25-65 sandbag. It’s been holding up pretty well so far and came with three filler bags. They seem pretty reasonably priced.

    I was supposed to run 10 miles today but single dad duties this weekend (wife is out of town) and busy so I hit the treadmill and split it up. I knocked out 5 in the morning (60 minutes) and then another 5 before dinner (64 minutes). Optimal? Maybe not. But that second 5 was a good mental check if anything. Planks and stretching once the boys settle for the night.

    **Clean and Press - 115 for 3x5. Last set was a struggle, might figure out a conservative max on Wednesday and then start using Fighter percentages.
    **Back Squat - 185 for 3x5. Still strong and easy, continuing linear progression.
    **Turkish Get-Ups - 16kg still, but I think it's time for the 20kg.
    **1000m Row - 4:24. I didn't realize the rowers had damper settings until after I finished, apparently the one I'm using is stuck on the highest one. It makes it a pretty terrible few minutes to be sure, but I kind of like it.

    No pinch grip farmer's walks today, I was running short on time. Productive otherwise.

    10 miles on a treadmill? That's willpower.

    Tested some conservative estimated 1RMs to start Tactical Barbell Fighter programming next week.

    Clean and Press - 135
    Back Squat - 250

    Finished with some pinch grip farmer's walks with a pair of 25# bumper plates and a 1000m row in 4:36. TGUs tonight.
