    Today's harder interval workout. Got the garage lifting gym done last night. Just still haven't put up the ceiling ring yet. Going to give it a go tonight, likely starting out pretty light. Other than pushups, pressups and some light weighted squats, haven't been doing much lifting. Did my 100 pushups already this AM along with this workout.

    Easy 16' stationary bike <70% HRR (start to condition my way back into some cycling activity), 40' core exercises (pretty much same as reported previously, add time/count to most; replace floor side crunch with one-bent-knee ball side crunch R&L; add lower body twist with ball between knees, ball hip abduction, ball overhead circles CW & CCW).

    You guys and your hi-tech trackers.

    Lol.

    I’m kidding. I use a garmin watch when I’m able to run.

    I'm thinking about an abacus, myself. When I do the declining-count kettlebell circuits lately, I start losing track of where I am in the count, around halfway through (6? 5?), then try to err on the side of doing extras. Beads on a wire would be perfect, just a quick flip between rounds . . . and there are certainly enough beads and wire around here (one of my other hobbies is making jewelry 😆).

    I did a quick workout yesterday. Work was silly, so I started at around 1.30 a.m.

    Bench 3 sets of 10, 50 kgs. I've been benching a lot recently, in terms of volume if not weight. The last time I checked, my 1-rep max was around 70 kgs (at a body weight of 65 kgs). I may test where it is now in the foreseeable future.

    Kettlebell 100 swings, 24 kgs.

    That's pretty impressive Matt. I would never workout at that hour!

    I had trouble last night at 7 PM doing mine! I told myself that I was going to do lifting in the new garage gym. I have a Total Gym, a Rebok style portable bench, a power tower, a full set of slam balls, heavy rope, plyo box, 50 lb adjustable dumbbells and some heavy KBs. Still want to put a ring in the ceiling for TRX, rings and for an Endless Rope machine.

    The only thing I hadn't figured out is where to put the heavy rope, so I've ordered some tent spikes from Amazon (waiting on those) so I can stake it in on the other side of my driveway in the gravel and stretch the rope across the driveway.

    Last night, was finally able to do work and couldn't decide what I wanted to do. Did one legged pistol squats on the Total Gym (assisted), some other upper body work on the TG (shoulder work, which it's great for), triceps, bicep curls and some more leg work. Set up the Rebok bench (also a step) and did a lot of weighted steps ups (just 40 lbs), some overhead presses and then finished up with some slam balls. LOVE that. Was slamming my 30lb ball. Wasn't quite sure how to do it, but looked it up after and my form was pretty decent.

    Total of only 20 minutes (I don't rest between, straight supersetting), 200 calories burned.

    8250m row today. Odd number but on the PM5 (Concept2's rowing computer), if you set up an interval as 5500 X 2 and don't finish the second interval, it doesn't record what you do get done. I was doing that a lot so now I'm setting up the row as 5500m, 2 minute break, then 2750, 2750 with no breaks for 11K, assuming I feel up to it. I did the 5500 and the first 2750 today. Was a tad tired after doing the lift last night before bed. All under 75% max HR.

    First Bike/Run brick session today. 1:04:00 on bike trainer ride, then right into a 15 minute transition run.

    Bike work was alternating 5 minute blocks of steady power output with blocks of increasing cadence
    1) 4 min block total, done as: 1min @95rpm,1 [email protected] rpm, [email protected], [email protected]
    2) 3 min as - 1 [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
    3) 2min as - 1 [email protected], [email protected]
    4) 1min as - highest cadence possible without bouncing in the saddle (126-128rpm)

    I'm looking forward to warm weather and lots of time in the saddle next week. A few friends and I will ride bikes from Florida City to Key West over two days. We'll ride at an easy pace, going the first 90 miles to Marathon on day one, then the remaining 70 miles to Key West the next day.

    Would be glad to donate my extra cardio calories to anyone in need next week.

    Half hour stationary bike, all but 1' below 70%, while simultaneously talking on the phone with a friend. 😆

    Earlier in evening: Automated survey from my new health insurance company, follow-up to doctor appointment. Asked if my doctor talked with me about benefits of exercise for fall prevention, etc. I said no. (My doctor has met me, y'know? 😆). Had to listen to an extended recorded lecture about how good it is to stay active while aging (I'm 65), and how I should talk with my doctor about it. Then, because it misprocessed my answer to the next question (unrelated), it looped me through the "activity is beneficial" recorded lecture THREE TIMES.

    Another highlight: I have BPPV (vertigo) spells, so when it asked if I'd fallen lately, I said yes. (Bad, admittedly.) It suggested I talk with my doctor about using a cane or walker. Honestly, folks, I don't quite think I'm there yet. I do need to stop whipping my head around fast, ever, though. 🙄

    I managed to get a 40 minute hangboarding session in over lunch. I was OK at half crimp, but my three finger fully open crimp is pretty weak.

    In the evening, I squatted and deadlifted doing 3 sets of 5 (90 kgs) for the squat; and 3 sets of 7 (110 kgs) for the deadlift.

    I got a short walk in as well, finishing on 17,000 steps for the day.

    We had a bit cooler weather last week (-34C overnights before windchill) so I took the dogs snowshoeing every day instead of xc skiing. About the same effort required, but you don't get the intense windchills like you do when going down a slope on skiis. But yesterday was a beautiful sunny day with fresh snow, recently groomed trails, and the temp was only about -7C. It felt so good to be back skiing again. Heart rate up. Big stupid grin on my face. Dogs running beside me. A work out doesn't get any better than that 🙂

    Two 10-rep sets on the bench (raised to 15 degrees). Onto the elliptical for HIIT cardio (4 min intervals), after four minutes, jump on bench for ten reps (before the elliptical resets (30 sec)), then back on elliptical for 4 min interval, back to bench, repeat, repeat repeat... 39 min total on elliptical (clock stops when I hop off) and 11 sets/110 reps total bench press (full ROM -no cheating. Near failure by the 10th rep). Weight (bench) increased by 18# since last week (stack machine, so, well, you know). Weight increase (bench) left zero in the tank for shoulders and tris, so now my schedule is a bit off, but trying to keep my body in a constant state of WTF?

    5500m row, then another 27 or so minutes on the LateralX. Just around an hour total, including setting up the machines and switching machines. All pretty easy stuff. Rower @ 75% of max or lower and LateralX all 70% of max or lower. Roughly 680 calories or so.

    Did a "Familiar Loop" run, which is an easy aerobic run that is repeated a few times during the year to help validate fitness improvements. Ended up doing just over 4 miles on snowy roads.

    Still spent from overdoing it on the prior day (body was telling me "Hold up there, Tiger" -my body is a bit of an ahole). So, no cardio last night. Just focused on Abs, back and biceps.
