Re: Old man Dave firefighter combat challenge

Today should have been endurance day, but when I got to the gym, the treadmills were down, so I did this:

Superset: #95 thrusters and pull ups

10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1

No stopwatch, just pushed through it.

Re: Old man Dave firefighter combat challenge

Ok, part two, on course training. Three team members showed up so we did the front half rotating positions after each run. We ran nine times so each of us had three runs up the stairs with the hi rise pack, three donut pulls then run down the stairs and three times at the sled.

It was big fun!

Re: Old man Dave firefighter combat challenge

Only 30 minutes to train this morning, perhaps I'll get back in later today.

Tri sets: Squats / Weighted pull ups / Incline dumbell press

#135 x 8 / #0 x 8 / #65's x 8
#225 x 5 / #25 x 8 / #70's x 8
#275 x 5 / #35 x 8 / #75's x 8
#315 x 5 / #45 x 5 / #80's x 8
#315 x 5 / #45 x 5 / #80's x 8
#315 x 5 / #45 x 5 / #80's x 8

Squats didn't start feeling good until the last set, little bit tight in the hips and low back today. A few more sets would have probably helped, but had to make do today.

Re: Old man Dave firefighter combat challenge

Endurance work today, then off to California (death in the family). I will post as I can during this trip. I hope to get a couple of workouts in, but we'll see. Happy Easter to those whole celbrate it and happy Sunday to those that don't.

I will post the whole progression today It will be a bit long, but this is where I'll be going with the cardio for the next month or two.

Training in boots now, don SCBA pack and mask (off air)

Speed / Incline / Time

3.5 / 0 / 60 seconds
3.5 / 5.0 / 60
3.5 / 0 / 60
3.5 / 12.0 / 60
3.5 / 0 / 60
3.5 / 15 / 60
3.5 / 0 / 60
4.0 (jog) / 15.0 / 60
3.5 / 0 / 60
3.5 / 15.0 / 60
3.5 / 0 / 60
4.0 / 15.0 / 60

etc.

31:00

I may move the speed up a little in the future, but in truth I doubt I will run any faster that that on the course. I double step the stairs, but don't run them and jog on the rest. The goal for this year is sub 2:30, which I think is possible. We shall see.

Re: Old man Dave firefighter combat challenge

Ok, back to it. I did some training while I was gone, but since there was no real schedule to it, I won't put it in here. Today was a metcon with a strength element to it.

Ten Rounds:

5 reps #275 deadlift
5 reps #185 incline barbell press
5 dead hang pull ups w/#25 dumbell between my knees

#18:25

Pretty good one if I do say so myself..

Re: Old man Dave firefighter combat challenge

No running on the pack test!

I'd much rather jog it than speed walk it. Speed walking is not a natural motion for me. If you pass by a park, you can do some weighted pull-ups along the way to really show off.

Re: Old man Dave firefighter combat challenge

Yep, I'm no speed walker either, I think this test is biased towards long legged people! If I can't find a place to do pullups out in the sagebrush, there are always burpees!
