R7D74/7 – Summer’s Over, Time To Get Schooled

Tags: , ,

This weekend I managed to do a 100 pullup / 100 35lb curl session in place of back and biceps and a run through of Insanity Max Interval Circuit. I worked out in the cool late summer rain and was invigorated by the winds of change… This time of year is a great time to […]

R7D47-9 – Picking Up The Pace (and a shocking statistic)

It’s funny how a little thing like a new heart rate monitor can affect your whole attitude and approach to your workouts.

Round 2, Day 38 – Spinning Wheels and Invisible Tony

Tags: , , , ,

I had a bad weekend, mostly due to the fact that I started to create a pass-through in our living room to get light into the dining room. That took a lot out of me on Saturday with the header building and the support work and then I had to coach on Sunday for one […]

Round 2, Phase 2, Week 1 – Back Tweak = Back Day!!

Tags: , , ,

I am sporadic in my updating only due to the fact that I am sporadic in my work. I tweaked something in my back the other day and being cautious doesn’t really jive with what I am trying to achieve. However, I have found if I am careful and warm up properly that I can […]
