Weighed 247 in the morning
Walking- 40 min at brisk pace
Bought an e-book (5/3/1 for Powerlifting) this weekend. It laid out a way to structure training if you are not near a meet and want to focus on losing weight, which is my goal now. I am going to restructure my training this way, as this should work better than the bastardized version of crossfit with a few heavy lifts thrown in like I was doing.
Monday- Squat, Reverse Hyperexptension, Leg raises, Prowler -some weight for max reps in 20 minutes
Tuesday- Bench, Incline Dumbbell press, Chest Supported Row, Prowler- 90x10 sets
Wednesday- Walk for 1 hour
Thursday- Deadlift, Good mornings, Ab wheel, Prowler -some weight for max reps in 20 minutes
Friday- Walk for 1 hour
Saturday- Overhead press, Incline Dumbbell Press, Curls, Prowler- 90x10 sets
Sunday- Walk for 1 hour
My reasons for using the prowler so much are:
- No other type of exercise gets me as winded, except maybe sprinting but I think there is less wear and tear from prowler pushes since you are not moving as fast
- Even though my legs and lungs are on fire I don't find recovery takes that long. I figure this might have to do with the fact that there is no eccentric (lowering of weight) compenent to it.
C. Even if you are too tired to walk you can still lean on the prowler and get more work in that way.
Hopefully this takes me to the next level. Stay tuned...
