@Rizla81 Much appreciated dude. Was good to be able to give it that effort. Little bummed I misread my program; didn’t realize this would be my last opportunity for Deep Water deads. Otherwise, I woulda gone until blackout.
@losthog It’s not for me yet either, haha. My wife taught me a great lesson once. I had just started my new job, was learning the ropes, and planned to start a Masters soon. Right before I was going to start, I got a promotion, with new responsibilities. I said “Ok, I guess I’ll learn THIS job, and THEN I’ll start my Masters”. My wife said “You know, there’s never going to be a GOOD time to start your Masters; you might as well just pick a bad time and do it.”
I signed up that day, haha.
@idontbrag123 Awesome dude; good to have you aboard.
@bigjez It’s funny, because during the beginner and intermediate phases it wasn’t the biggest deal, but on the advanced, you DEFINITELY don’t want to eat beforehand.
I’ll be writing a review on it, but understanding it from a Wendler perspective, Beginner and Intermediate are like leaders, and intermediate is an anchor. The advanced program isn’t meant for advanced trainees, and it doesn’t make you MORE advanced than the beginner and intermediate programs: it just gives you the opportunity to realize everything you built in those prior programs. It all looks insane on paper, but it all works.
Heavy punching bag boxing workout
2 minutes on
30 seconds rest
Notes: I’ve been getting the itch to fight again, and I found myself buying yet another pair of boxing gloves (16oz) at the sporting goods store and doing it all over again. I haven’t hit a heavybag since about 2012, but it was like riding a bike. I’ve missed it so much. Just a part of my identity I can’t shake. I’ve learned from enough of these start/stop boxing binges that I couldn’t go full power today, because otherwise my hands, wrists and elbows will ache for days, but still went enough to suck wind and get in a good workout. Had to go a little shorter on time than I’d like due to schedule restraints, but I’m happy. Mrs has a co-worker she might con into being a sparring partner too.
I know my footwork is a mess, I’m sure I’m slower than I was, but hell, I felt like I was home again. I also legit thing my testosterone is dailed up from all the sleep I’ve been getting, and maybe Deep Water is a part of that as well.
