Chemo, Radiation and a Stem Cell Transplant. Got your attention? awesome. Don’t run, yeah this is a BW blog but trust me, I’ll legitimately try and put forth some effort to keep your attention with daily spills on numerous topics. Who the hell would want to follow a blog with just BW training. Fuck, I wouldn’t. Anyways, chins and push ups. That’s all it’s boiled down to folks. My doctors only advise BW training, since I’ve had a recent battle with cancer.
Anyways my last thread was “Done with weights, a new era” I realized the title of that thread probably kept people away. I’m done that cycle, because my BW cycles are only lasting about 3 weeks with a.m and p.m training. Add that shit up and you can make a lot of progress on what you’ve started in that time. You can add reps/sets or at least progress in someway everyday with BW training, let alone when you have A.M and P.M sessions. Yeah I know what most people are thinking, hell even I’m thinking it “This guys on T-Nation he’s 20 years old and he’s doing fucking push ups and chin ups, sounds like some asshole I went to high school with” believe me.
I cringe thinking about it sometimes to, considering I used to be into Olympic Weightlifting. But fuck it, cut me some slack here, stem cell transplants are not good for muscle, let alone chemo, radiation and being fed through a tube not to mention the countless other things but I’m not here to get into that. I don’t want people to look at me differently or treat me any differently. I’d like to think I’m not your average Joe and to tell you the truth people usually expect more out of me.
The only thing I’ll be doing in exception to chins and push ups are Cycling (HIIT) and static holds. Trying to get into Coach Sommers gymnastics stuff but apparently there’s been a mail strike going on? (don’t really watch TV) so I’m still waiting on the book. Anyways, today looked something like this.
A.M 15 min HIIT cycling
5x50 Push Ups
5X50 Push Ups
Methodology or theory behind this? None. Well at least nothing that;'s legit justifiable. My only objective is to beat my total every day. I’ll try and have a spill everyday about whatever I’m feeling. Could be training, nutrition or life related. Or it could just end up being a rant of some sort. I’ll throw down a spill for today.
Today I had to go to my friends mom’s viewing. She had breast cancer. Was doing great, all of a sudden it metastasized up her spinal cord into her brain. Terrible shit. Even with everything I’ve been through I can’t help but consider myself lucky. I’m still here and I’m doing great. Everyday I’ll try and wake up and attempt to better myself in any way and in any aspect in any quantity. I told myself when I was in the hospital when I got out of there not if, I’d never go another day without trying to better myself. After going to this viewing I was reminded of that again. That’s all I got time for today. I’ll be back tomorrow. Gonna go watch some Tour De France highlights, get some reading in and go to bed. Cheers.
