    01.13.2021

    D, Swings 15x15
    Deads 135x5, 228x4,4
    Chin-ups BW+44x6,6
    Pull-ups BW+25x5,5
    Barbell Curls 65x6, 70x6
    Alt D. Curls 15x6, 20x6
    Mixed Grip Pull-ups BWx12

    The wear/tear of the week was clear and present beforehand, but I toughed it out. Everything is feeling real heavy. Body weight is still hovering in the low 140's. Nutrition has been solid, but I do have periods where I go a long time between meals, sometimes 8-10 hours. I may need to supplement with a shake or something.

    Nice work today hitting deads on a day you felt the world beating down on you is commitment.

    Thanks! I'm going to have to do something. Amazingly, we are only open 6 hours/day, but the before and after, along with the pace is seemingly up-ticking, and doesn't seem to be leveling any time soon.

    Looking at your last few workouts, I am mucho impressed-o

    Busy life, quick workouts full of work, and still maintaining a slightly less than 8 minute per mile pace on your last run... and BWx18 on pullups....

    Yeah you definitely need something in that 8-10 hour time frame to keep you going. I am assuming that the 8-10 hours is you being busy as hell and running around the entire time lol, so yeah definitely need to get a snack in or, if not possible, slam a protein shake or two throughout that time.
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Those weighted pullups dang. I might do some walk/jog/sprinting myself tomorrow. Also how do you like dumbbell swings and how would you go about doing them? Hold the end of the dumbbell with both hands?

    Thanks Brother! Some days, I'm ending up with just 2 meals/day, so I'll try to add a shake.

    Thanks Tobi! I have been utilizing the swings as a warm-up. This started when I was training people a couple years back. I generally would have about an hour or so with a client, so I wanted to get them warmed up (full body) as rapidly as possible, so we could spend the time as best and efficient as possible, so the dumbbell swing became a staple. It gets the blood flowing quick. Yep, both hands, and I usually alternate the top hand if doing multiple sets.

    I have played around with a heavier version in the past as well, when I was doing a version of Dan John's Easy Strength.

    Being busy at work is really a blessing right now. You seem to be doing as well as you can at balancing it with other parts of your life. Keep up the good work brother.

    How much more inconvenient is an intra-city run compared to your normal runs? I assume there are more interferences that you have to run around but are there any delays?

    I used to read about Dan John's work back in the day. I did hear about his 10000 swing challenge. Knowledgable guy. I might give them a try in the future. And sometimes a short day like a simple run is all you need. You still got the main movement in.

    Thanks Gents! The city run, which I haven't done for some time, was a bit more dangerous than I remember it being. I think next time I'll stick to the paths.

    great work getting those runs in!

    intracity run could be good motivation to get a faster pace if you go through the shi tee pa town

    01.18.2021

    01.18.2021

    Training:

    Warmed up with some wrist stretches, then some basic walk progressions for the hands/wrists.

    Then, some timed tripod holds, altered with some shoulder mobility. I haven't done the tripods for quite a while, so 3 sets of 12 second holds was challenging.

    Next up;

    Dips BWx5, BW+25x5, BW+50x5, BW+75x5, BW+100x5

    alternated with;

    Chin-ups BWx5, BW+10x5, BW+25x5, BW+35x5, BW+45x5

    Finished up with;

    Incline Push-ups/Mobility
    Incline Rows (rings)/Mobility
    Scapular Shrugs/Mobility
    Bent Hollow Body Holds/Mobility

    These calisthenic movements were very basic. Due to my crazy schedule, I decided to bring back some supplementary movements that I used to play around with a few years back, with the thought that if necessary, I could knock them out at work.

    I figure I can hit the big movements at home, and if needed do the supplementary work later.

    What’s the weight on the swings? Also how are you starting with the pistols? Holding onto to something or on top of a milk crate and kinda letting one leg hang down?

    I tend to work these using a trx just to keep balance. But I’ve been slacking lately

    I really like them a lot. I hope someday that I can approach the skill you have on them Brother. Unreal strength!

    Hey Raigs! I have been using the swings as just a warm-up, so I just use a light dumbbell (15#.) With the pistols, I'm aiming for immaculate form,kind of emphasizing the the hold on the top/bottom, but currently I'm cheating with a low bench, trying to lower it incrementally.


    So, for the past couple days, I've been going through the motions (work is still keeping me busy much of the day and night.) I've just messed around with some body weight stuff at work, and I did do an early morning 20 minute run yesterday.

    Today, (Friday) I am filled up with tasks before work, so no training at all, but I'm hoping to get back on schedule tomorrow.

    It’s a double edge sword being busy like you want to do other things but it’s great that your business is doing so well.


    Nice work on the pistols. I figured you be using something to start. They are incredibly tough. I commend you for going for it!

    Thanks Bro! I feel blessed to be able to even do a regression of the pistols. There was a time, a few years back, my knees were so f-d, I couldn't even squat to above parallel.

    Sandbox mode continues. Just doing a calisthenic session, a 2 miler here and there. Yesterday, I wanted to get some pulling in, so I ended up doing a few sets of weighted chins (3xBW+50x4) weighted pull-ups (3xBW+35x4) and played around with rotating gymnastic rings pull-ups, a couple moderate deadlifts (225#) and some tuck holds, and assisted front lever rows.

    Nice job doing what you can. Takes discipline to train under less than ideal circumstances.

    Sandbox mode, eh? lol most guys in full throttle mode are not doing weighted chin-ups and pull-ups, running 2 milers in chitty weather, and keeping busy 12+ hours a day.

    You, however, are in a down mode and doing all that lol.
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Thanks 4G! I'm slowly navigating to doing most of my training on site at the shop. Low body will be a challenge--- I'll probably have to do that in my basement, but otherwise, I think a dip/chin tower will fit nicely somewhere in the stock room.
