    Default 2 Month Power Cycle LOG

    Yesterday was my first workout of my 2 month power cycle. It's going to be a very hard two month's to progress with the holidays and work. I am also playing with the estrogenic diet to see how that goes.

    Diet was

    Morning -Coffee with french vanilla cream

    Lunch- spinach saled with red beans,black beans ,garbonzo's, avacodo ,corn and almonds.


    Dinner witch was post workout was spinach,hummus and grabanzo edame saled.

    And a large scoop of peanut butter a little later for more portein.

    Worked late so could not eat like I wanted.

    The Workout was

    ladder set of 10-1 then back up 1-10

    burpees no pushup followed by 100 double unders it took me a half hour really hard to do I want to cut my time in the next two month's.

    Someone asked if I would be doing a log so since I am in the 40 year old category I will put it here.

    Breakfast -coffee

    Lunch - My normal Saled of spinach,almonds,red beans,black beans ,garbonzo's and avacodo

    Pre-workout- 2 organic food bars

    Dinner -post workout 5 crab cakes with spinach and lots of hummas

    Workout for today was simple
    10 sets of pullups with a 20lb weight vest
    then 50 closegrip pushups

    I was very tired from the long week of work I have been doing a lot of overtime. So I went to sleep at 9:00 and ate a lot last night I feel better today. But I will be at the guns and roses concert tonight so no workout.

    Thanks Giving Day and yes I worked out

    Had some coffee and a clif bar for Breakfast and saw beauty and the beast with my daughter on the disney channel.

    The workout
    Some light yoga a lot less than normal
    Ladder pullups 1-6 and 5-1
    Dips between benches 1-6 and 5-1
    On 5-1 last reps on pullups held for a bit on top
    Then 10 minutes of
    run,slide and crawl the crawl was brutal after the pullups and dips arms where shot.
    Then 10 minutes of ladder sprints
    I did this inside so I had to make up distance and this worked out nice
    1 sprint is back and forth and I just kept adding until I got to 7 The goal will be to get to 10 and down and do this with a 20 lb vest .
    I skipped the other parts of the workout as I was shot. My legs are my strong point always have been.

    I have been drinking bengal spice tea and I am getting ready to just pig out later.

    Everyone enjoy the day. I will try to put up a video of the sprint ladders as I think it's a great and fun routine instead of just sprinting back and forth.

    I don't know if it was the long holiday weekend or little junk food or maybe it was that I did not have my morning coffee.

    I took my daughter to school and decided to check out this park in queens not very nice. So I did the best I could

    Ladder pullups and pressups up to 5 last week did 6

    Then it it took me 5 sets to get 50 reps of close grip pushups wasn't feeling it.

    I then did my lunges to touch the floor it took me 5 minutes per leg it should take me that long for both legs. So I called it quits for the day.

    On the ride home I was disgusted and it is my off day so I said I would eat something and workout again later.
    I had some iced coffee and 2 clif bars waited about and hour and a half and I was like time to try again
    I went to the gym and did some pullups then decided to do sets of weighted pullups
    I started with 10 pounds and worked up to four sets with a 35 with reps of two holding on top
    From there I did medicine ball ladder one arm pushups up to 3 and down to 3 shoulder was killing me.
    Then I did assisted muscle ups on rings into a l-sit for fun

    Jr Doubles where better and I got 472 300 more reps than last week. as my timing is better from practice all week.
    Reverse was another story I had to do set after set until I was about the same as last week. I may have to stop the forwards and focus on the reverse as I suck at them.

    feel a little bit better that I worked out again so I will stretch out a lot and eat. I will have my coffee tomorrow before I work out.

    well yesterday was a little better I made sure I had my coffee in the morning and I think it helped even though it was raining. So I decided to go outside and do my workout and film a little I had to do 24 minutes on the minute with four exercises. I decided to put on a 20lb vest and the workout was like I have in my video:

    I think yesterday's workout left me flat. I took my daughter to school today and came home had some coffee and a clif bar.
    Went to another park and I did
    ladder superset of weighted 20 pullups with pushups on dip bars real deep stretch. I got up to 4 reps I know this may not seem impressive but these are dead hang pullups and a couple of weeks ago I could only do two after my layoff so I really need to build on these another thing is I do not do is rest long I pretty much go back to back without resting as lactic acid and fatigue sets in.

    Then I worked on my reverse jumprope and I need so much work on these are really hard.

    Then did 10 sets of two with 20lb vest holding up on top of the bar.
    And then did some weighted pushups with the 20 lb vest on pushup bars.
    i filmed some of it but I looked pathetic. So I want to reshoot in a couple of weeks and compare the videos and see how much I improved or did not. For the rest of this cycle I will wear the 20lb vest all the time to see if I improve more during the weeks ahead.

    As for food I ate a foot long turkey and bacon on whole wheat with lettuce,tomatoes and avocado for lunch with coffee

    and I just eat two more cliff bars as I felt run down today so I think I needed more food.

    2 minute air squats 77 reps
    2 minute max pullups 9 reps shoulder and grip was not budging. ( Even though these numbes on pullup suck a couple of weeks ago I could not even do 2 oulluos with my own bodyweight do to shoulder injury and layoff after surgery)
    3 mile run 38.08
    Modified strength
    3rounds
    50 double unders

    Well I took a nice amount of days off Some where not planned my daughter caught a stomach virus and changed all our plans so I did not get to go away with the wife. I did eat a good amount of junk food not good. So today was officially my first day for the week

    WOD

    10 laps of my complex after every lap I did 10 pushups and on the last lap I did as many as I could slow contracted pushups all wearing a 20lb vest. Boy to I hate distance running.
    Tommorow I have planned one of my all time basic and favorite workouts I hope I will be able to get you some footage to see.

    Well the last workout destroyed me as I was wiped out yesterday. Then I tried using this new recorder that I have and I am not happy with it. If it does not get better I will have to switch to the old one I was using. The workout I wanted to tape is a very no frills power conditioning workout.

    WOD= No frills Power and conditioning

    This workout is until failure depending on your conditioning

    Sprint up the Hill drop down and do 20 pushups and 20 squats walk down as soon as you get to start line go right back up to don rest at all for any reason. Do as many rounds as possible 30-40 mintues straight would be nice. This is great for fight training or sports that you need to have power and conditioning all the time very basic. This was not one of my best workouts yesterday I did 10 rounds with a twenty pound vest I am very upset with my numbers. Also warmup very good before starting as you don't want to pull a hamstring on this workout I have done that before. The best I have done with this workout was with a 40lb vest.

    After this is a strength workout I chose
    Uneven pushups 5 sets of 5 as I want to be doing one arm pushups for next years goal the stronger I get them ore I will move my hand back until I have the one arm pushup.
    Close Grip Pullups again 5 sets of 5 second goal for new year is to get one arm pullups all these are for master level in the book convict conditioning that is built to get very strong. There are 6 exercises in all tho master I chose to work on two for now.

    This workout should be done twice a week or Monday,Wednesday,Friday during week with lots of stretching on your off days.

    I weighed myself and I am at 168 my weight has not changed much using IF fasting in the morning I still don't know if this is a good thing but this is how I would eat in high school and my weight was like this that it would not change. It would be nice to stay at this weight and lose some more bodyfat as my goal is 170 at low bodyfat. I also started to take a multi vitamin.

    Horrible week no training whatsoever . I have to work the next two weeks 12 hour shifts that makes it hard to train. But I did workout today . A huge change of pace as I did barbel work.

    WOD

    Joint Mobility work to warmup

    A1)Floor Press worked up to 150lbs 3x3
    A2) Weighted pullup with 16kg kettlebell


    B1) Deadlift 3x3 Up to 275

    Convict conditioning step 5 of pushup 2x10
    Convict conditioning step 8 of leg raises 2x10

    I know the numbers are not impressive at all a lot of it has to do with my shoulder injury and I don't want to go crazy I had to go back down in steps on the pushups for convict conditioning because of this the way I do the pushup in step 5 stresses my shoulder more. Only a couple of weeks before I can see the new doctor on my shoulder that does art therapy. I am very disappointed in my Dr. that I was going to as they did nothing for my shoulder.

    I will be doing more barbell work in the coming weeks hopefully my numbers will go up . Also I got this work out on the barbell from Mike Mahler website. Seems good for stress during the holidays.
    I hope everyone has a great Holiday.

    Took The day Off For Christmas.

    Woke up this morning feeling aches and pains

    Went to the gym

    WOD
    Yoga work to help loosen up then

    Front Squats 6x3 up to 115 felt good did not want to put lots of pressure on my shoulder
    Shoulder presses 6x3 up to 95 first time pressing since My Injury in June so took it easy.

    DB Incline press I have no idea when was the last time I did these worked up to 45lbs very easy but there was a lot of cracking in my shoulders. Hopefully the Art doctor will be able to solve this when I go next month.

    Convict conditioning Level 10 one legged Squat 3x2 Form was not as tight so I will continue to work on form and building the reps

    Then I finished with Wall walks of bridged for three sets hopefully my spine will loosen up in the weeks to come.
