Odd pull-ups in the Ninja warrior room? Not sure I want to know, but. . . how odd?
Did a little dancing and rearranged van. Now potty is in the back and dog area on the side and in the middle.
Worked legs in gym yesterday, then 4.5 mile snow run. Rode bike to work today, nice chilly snow ride
This week was yet another slow week due to living out of hotels..
only 3 exercises. one swim and 2 Iron pumps. The Irons pumps were fully body and reasonably intense though..
Just did a swim last nite at the Hotel to start off the week. I am traveling next 1.5 days and when I get to where i am going I will likely be jetlagged so more workouts will be hard this week.. Getting in a workout early in the week makes it possible i can still get in a decent number for the week under these conditions..
I am flying out tonite but the flight is later in the day so I may yet manage another workout before i check in... even though I already handed in my rental car last nite. Maybe I can get the hotel shuttle to drive me to Golds even though its outside of their normal driving range...
I'll explain as best I can. First 2 sets are chin-ups hanging from small baseball sized balls hanging from hooks. Next 2 are from handles that look similar to nunchaku handles. The next 2 sets are finger tips from railings hanging from the wall which are similar to doorframes. The last set is from a flying saucer type disc hanging from a hook. I raise my legs until my body is parallel to the floor then pull up almost like a row. Hope that helps. It may have made it as clear as mud also I guess.
Update: Nothing as hardcore as Jim... But am moderately proud that despite jetlag and living out of hotel o far this week I am at 3 workouts (2 cardios and 1 iron pump) and there is still pleny of time left in the week to add another 1 or 2 exercises
Do you mean like this?
this seems more like Jim territory then me. At my peak I could have done some of these things but only a small fraction.
My muscles still repond very well to training but my joints cant handle the heavy repeat training needed to get to a very high level... and when i train hard they are the limiting factor rather to strenght growth for me.
It is so amazing to me what people can do with their body strength. Hard core.
It reminded me of you, @BlueZ , that thing about people that want to kill me. Considering who our LEO and military are up against, some are very motivated to work hard at being as strong as they can.
Friday stepmill workout 121 floors in 30 mins with a pack, farmers carry with a pack and puling sled added 15 lbs to sled. Added pack to my power wheel workout. The rest was the same. Thursday night was treadmill workout 1 1/2 hrs at 15% incline. workouts are coming together for my Feb. 100 m race.
My horizontal pull ups are with my back to the floor and body parallel when I pull myself up. The ballistic movements on the video are insane, I can do a couple push ups with my powerwheel like that but don't think my elbows and shoulders can handle a lot of those at my age. Those side hanging things where they're walking look awesome. Have to see if there's a place in the gym where I can attempt those. Thanks for the awesome motivational video. Maybe I can convince the wife to video tape my Friday fun day so I can explain by showing.
