The weather has been awful, so I’m making up for it by jumping rope much to the displeasure of my ankles and calves. But they’ll get over it. Or the sun will finally make an appearance again.
Today is my “off” day. In ""s, because I still do my conditioning class first thing in the morning. It was a good workout today -
Supinated Chin Ups - sets of 6 - I focused on my negatives here
BB Clean & Press - sets of 12, so I went fairly light with 45 for the first two, 50 for the third
Rope Row (using a battle rope and Prowle) - 50, 70, 90 on the Prowler
Glute Ham Raise - 8,6,6
Box Squats - 12 x 65, 85, 95
Walking Lunges (25yds ~ 10 lunges) 15, 20, 30
Turkish GetUps - 3/side x 12, 15, 15
Body Slides (elbow plank with toes on a plate, slide plate back and forth, hinging at shoulder) 10,10,10
Bicycles - 25, 25, 25
I followed that up jumping rope for 20min.
For the sake of consistency, I’ll be back at the gym this evening for a bit more jumping rope (20-30min) and some TLC on a foam roller and tennis balls. I find this keeps me on track as I’m there every day, and I feel so much better after whimpering and rolling around for half an hour.
Diet has been going alright, I’m settling into a routine now. My carbs are higher than I had hoped (was aiming for 100g, but it’s perpetually coming in around 120-150g including peri-workout). I’m not too upset about it, though, since most of those carbs are veggies (with some fruit). As long as my numbers move in the right direction, I’m happy.
Going to do my first Pulse Fast tomorrow - a little excited, a little nervous.
