    Monday morning - ending November the way I began it: a boomin' Team Body Project session:
    Today was another round of "Resistance Cardio HIIT" followed by Real Start "Cardio Core".

    Who's excited for December movement??

    8829 rowing machine meters, usual format; focus on posture, firm core, proper layback. One of the four 2k pieces was rowed feet-out, which went suprisingly well. (The first time I ever rowed feet-out in a double, I fell over backwards into the lap of the collegiate rower sitting bow. Fortunately, she took it well, despite her surprise. 😆)

    I did a lighter full body workout!!! Had to cut it short but was glad to do SOME lifting for the first time in about a month!

    @mytyglotz, your enthusiasm for your exercise is infectious (in a good way)! 😊

    Happy December, y'all!

    Today:

    * 3 mile run
    * 3 one-minute forearm planks
    * 20 dumbbell arm curls, 5 pounds

    Hopefully I'll stick to these three things most every day this month.

    Yeah, I second that! I wish I was more excited about exercise!

    Did another 8 X 500m row today w/ 3 minute rests. Last week, I did the same row but I crashed and burned on the first rep. Averaged 2:02.6 last week overall. So I wanted to do it again with better pacing. Ended up doing a 2:00.5 average. Certainly not great but big improvement from last week. I used to do these around 1:49 pace, so a lot of work still to do. I'd like to at least get back in the low 1:50s on this workout. Again, really low drag factor (air input into the machine that most think of as resistance) to keep the back feeling good. Instead of working at higher DFs, I'm working on keeping the stroke rate fast. All were 30 and above on this one. For an average height man (and short for a rower), I've never been a terrible high SR rower. Slow relative to my height.

    Also did a 1K Warmup and 1K Cooldown.

    I got on my elliptical until my legs were on fire, which did not take long but I have only owned it for three days now and I have made a point to be on it every day even if its just a handful of minutes. I think that being consistent and building the habit is most important for me right now.

    Not sure what your goals are, but elliptical was my godsend when my knees gave out. I also JUST read another person's success story of losing 8lbs in one month with just building habits, including elliptical daily! Hope you find this inspiring and keep it up!

    Kickoff to December:
    Yes, onward with Team Body Project :smile:
      (just one session this morning. ...I really wanted to do more. Hopefully my body will make the most of the rest and come back stronger and more energetic for tomorrow.)
    • "Cardio Conditioning 2"

    Happy December, y'All!!

    Wife has decided "we" will walk 3 to 4 miles in the evening a few days a week. I don't mind walking, but it was my hard rowing day today and we have quite the hills in my neighborhood. One rises up around 500 ft to 700 ft. and is 1/2 mile long. So add that and my 100 pushups, pressups and leg work today.

    8944m rowing machine, the usual 4 x (2k on 2'off/CD). Decided to pick up the pace a little on the pieces, still steady state, but not quite as easy. Not fast (shooting for sub-2:30 at any rating that felt OK endurance-wise, ended up 23-25), but gratifyingly it turned out that I negative-split the pieces by a small bit, last 2k at 2:24.2.

    Turns out that it starts to feel like work when HR hits somewhere around 220-age 😆 (by coincidence), but I can hold that for a while still (most of the last 2k was close to that, or above; I figure that 155 is around 80% of reserve).

    When I get home, 20 minutes on my climber followed by deadlift day!
  • MikePfirrmanMikePfirrman Member Posts: 2,765 Member Member Posts: 2,765 Member
    5K on the rower and 20 on the Assault Bike today. Went out a bit too hard on the rower to keep under 70% HR max, so took it really easy on the Assault Bike.

    I do Sydney Cummings daily. Today was Upper Body Push Sculpt. And I did a 6km hike/power walk.

    Another 8882m C2 rowing machine, the usual format. Back to easy/moderate steady state, holding HR under 70% reserve, which is 10 seconds or a tad more slower than the splits at 80% reserve. Yesterday, mid-2:30s, today, 2:35-2:37ish, 19-23 spm.

    Trying to think about maintaining the space between lower ribs and top of pelvic bones all the way through the drive, not a classic focus point, but trying it as a personal posture cue . . . concerned that I'm letting my back get involved in undesirable ways, vs. the whole swing being from the hip joint. Don't wanna gronk my back. 😉
