More Than a Month

That’s how long it’s been since I posted. The good news is I have been consistently working out, at both homes (Asheville and Carolina Beach) and whilst working (New York and Georgia). Here are just a few of the workouts I’ve completed.

Tabata treadmill sprints

As much as I hate the treadmill, it does keep me “honest” when sprinting. And my pace has been fast, i.e., I always finish at a faster than 6 mpm pace.

Run 200m
10 strict pushup + pull-up + toes to bar

That was a doozy, and the last couple of T2B were a struggle.

Every 41 seconds for 100 rounds
Strict C2B pull-up
Strict 225# deadlift
Strict HSPU

Yup, 100 rounds! I could feel it the next day, i.e., I needed to recover.

Stiff-legged deadlift + bent over row + hang power clean + push press + back squat
Then sprint 60m (30m up and back)

And I do mean sprint! How was I sure? I took a breath every 3rd step toward 5th and 2nd step on the way back to the garage. My slowest and fastest rounds were 27 and 22 seconds, respectively.

5 plate burpees + box jump (with plate) @ 15#
4 plate burpees + box jump (with plate) @ 25#
3 plate burpees + box jump (with plate) @ 45#

Thus, box jumps were 25, 25.5, and 27″. However, the last round I used additional plates and heights were 25, 27, & 30″.

Begin each round with strict HSPU
1-2-3-4-5-5-4-3-2-1 thruster(s) @ 75#
1-2-3-4-4-3-2-1 thruster(s) @ 85#
1-2-3-3-2-1 thruster(s) @ 95#

I’m currently working with three companies (just got a gig through word of mouth) and coaching one individual. Yup, I’m busy. Yup, I’m happy. Endeavors include a 4-hour intensive presentational speaking workshop and assistance with client and business development. Yup, sales. As I often say, training is one of the most challenging sales jobs that there is.
