I Feel Kettlebells Returning

I have recently been bothered by my apparent lack of mobility and with the advent of really shitty weather I feel like it may be time to get back into the basement for some kettlebell work. Fact is that I bought some doc boots that require the ability to reach my feet for an extended […]

Summer Wind Down (my rest month)

Its the time of year where I take a bit of time to heal, to let my heavy lifting of the summer get behind me and take some time to do some ancillary work and cardio. I tend to lift pretty heavily during the summer, and almost exclusively certain exercises that eventually leads me to […]

Hitting My Stride – Finally

I think I am finally finding a way to satisfy my cravings for certain workout types and managing to put to bed my fear that my intensity and time are lacking. So far I have managed to integrate HIIT rope work with each workout, I have started to get back into kettlebell workouts and I […]

R12 – Summer 2014 Outline

So I wanted to see if I could make something based around what I already do, working in all the equipment I have, being able to make it as short or long as I want. Also, letting me involve Crossfit either at the gym or use the WOD for the day. The other thing is […]

Update and detail on my “bootcamp” days

Tags: ,

Expanding and Increasing

Tags: ,

I thought it was time to increase the weights and add a little variety. I am not bored, but I am definitely knee deep in a rut of Olympic lifts. I really need to start doing bootcamp workouts with the kids to get us all back into the habit. Thursday – Off. Swimming seems to […]

With March Break and so on we had a disruption in service, however all is back to normal now and I am going to commit to keep more up to date. The problem with not keeping up is not only do I lose the record of what I have done and what I need to […]
