    @J72FIT, how was your handstand wall hold times affected by having done DB OHP work prior? Thanks for reminder, I want to do some handstand wall holds, it's been a long time.

    How many sets did you do of the dead hangs and handstand wall holds and what was your recovery time between sets? Nice job. I did a hang for time yesterday to see where I'm at. I like the feel of a hang. Remember doing weighted hangs long ago. Think I grew an inch.

    Also, thanks for the training idea of your jump rope workout. I've been following your effort and you're 45s on and 15s off for multiple rounds falls right in line with how I like to train.

    Keep up the good work and keep marching forward!

    I'm adding weight training back into my routines too (along with the rowing). I need to build strength. I've had a Plyo Box out in my garage now for six months that I hadn't put together because I got it right before I injured my back. Also, my son got me battle ropes for X-Mas. I need to unpack those and figure out where to put them in the new house. I'm considering outside because it's going into Fall here in Tucson and the weather will be fantastic for the next nine months -- perfect for outside workouts. My wife also got me some Adjustable Dumbbells that I've barely used yet. Need to break those bad boys out and start working them too.

    When I do lift, my style of lifting is very similar to yours -- mostly heavy KBs and dumbbells and body weight. Not a ton of barbell work. For one, my back can't take barbell work and I like to work out at home so not much room or desire to add in a cage, etc. at my age. Just replace your running (I can't run) with lots of rowing. I just can't lift as heavy yet so I have to be cautious moving forward.

    I do need to get a solid hangup bar too and install it in my garage.

    @MikePfirrman, as you may know if you follow my training posts, I train outdoors at a local park despite having been a gym rat for a long time. I enjoy it but winter is more challenging in my part of the world compared to yours. Best older man advice is to start at the bottom with loads and use a progressive resistance approach. I personally favor heavier loads and lower reps with decent recovery time between rounds and get my endurance training from running or lighter load KB complex work. Having flexible shoulders is key. Be safe, have fun and challenge the heck out of yourself.

    The handstand wall holds were part of my warmup. 1 minute each with a couple minutes inbetween where I did some arm circles and other dynamic stretches. Yeah I love the feel of hangs too. My shoulders have never felt better...

    Yesterday's TrainerRoad ride that was moved to today: done. 60 minutes of sweet spot training. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was.

    6 mile hike this morning, 131 minutes worth, fighting with 140 pounds of male dogs (two dogs equalling 140 pounds). Great upper body resistance training! lol

    Same as yesterday -- 27 minutes X 2 sets on the Indoor Rower. A bit early today as it seemed we got a bit of a Cyber attack I would bet. Linkedin, my server and my ATS (applicant tracking system) were all out at the same time. So instead of cursing at the computer, I did my lunch workout at 11 AM instead of 12. Things all seem to be back online now, so back to work!

    Just under 7km rowing the double (in bow as usual), mostly easy steady state, a few power pieces when I felt like we had enough assured clear river that I could worry less about steering (an unpredictable double, a single, and some floating debris were in the picture today).

    I think it's amusing to look at HR graphs after the fact; I can correlate the peaks and valleys with events: Major HR drop after about the first 1/4 and before the last 1/4 (spin the boat at each bridge, take a quick water break); steady state after the first spin until we could see around the big curve and know where the other boats were; peaks for the short power pieces after that, pretty evenly spaced until I took us to longer steady state to sort out where the other boats were and get a line to pass the single; a couple more pieces before the 2nd turn (one shortened); steady state back to the dock (including my frequent game of trying to stern-steer neatly through the waterski team's buoy course ;) - don't worry, they don't ski on weekday mornings); then the slowdown to "park" the boat and little wandering around on the dock before I turned off the Garmin.

    30 min early morning speedwork with my trainer. When she took the weighted vest out of her car I knew it was going to be a tough one, and it was. Hill sprints wearing a weighted vest are hard work.

    1.5hrs of steady(ish) state cardio
    11km on the bike
    20 floors on the stair master
    5km on the elliptical
    2.5km on the treadmill

    Quick play with a barbell testing my elbow out.

    PiYo, still struggling with the idea of balancing on one leg holding the other out straight by the heel. Simply not happening, so next week I'm taking a resistance band to help.

    Yesterday, I lifted.
    I did some hangboard hang/pull ups, getting to the second level (out of 3) on my board for the first time. The top level is fingertips only - it will take me a while to reach it

    Then I benched (55 kgs, 3 sets of 5) and deadlifted (120kgs, 1 set of 5).
    I finished with some banded facepulls.

    4.0 was practically my "running" speed, lol. I was a terrible runner, that's why I row now! 3.9 is great for walking!!

    I put time in walking fast walks and learned that it takes total concentration walking fast or I end up back at a slower “whistling Dixie” pace.

    Yesterday- 60 minute Krav Maga class
    Today- sprints and silly races with my son (total of 2.5 miles). One race involved “slithering” up our front walkway. I was not good at this and I’m hoping none of the neighbors witnessed it😂
