modified the mainsite 091221 workout: Diane. Working on HSPU in alt positions in P/T. So the workout called for 21,15, 9 resps of 225# DL and HSPU's. I subbed 135# OH presses. Completed in 9:42.

Found out that the same flexibility problem I have with OH Squats applies to HSPU's. My current HSPU's are like an incline press at a steeper ankle than would be done on a bench. This can work upside down. However, right side up with a barbell overhead, the bar falls. The PT is giving me lots of exercises to create more flex.----so work.

Been bad about keeping up. I am supposed to be getting ready to retire and these young guys keep heaping work on me.

Any way..
Sunday - 1 hr hike in the snow covered hills of Iowa. Pretty exhausting.
Monday - 30 min of snow shoeing. Wanted to do more but the sun went down and it was getting dark.
Today - at the base field house gym - walk 0.8 mile; 3000m row; 0.8 mile walk with push-ups on every lap; 2000m row; 0.8 mile walk with more push ups.

Abs are a bit sore. I'll have to see how they are tomorrow.

We are supposed to get freezing rain tomorrow followed by a lot of snow. May have to break out the cross country skis.

Hey everyone! We did slamballs and wallballs today and I felt every one of my 45 years! Eek! Fun though!

And I don't think I have been here to mention it - on Saturday I got my first double unders. :D

I've been a slacker, taken two days off in a row. But I had to congratulate Diane on the DUs. I've been practicing. I'm really beginning to take a liking to those. Might get me one of those fancy speed ropes.

Deb, Don't worry about not being "fast" on the box jumps. It's the height that counts!

Thanks Jeff! Suddenly I'm looking forward to double-unders! We are supposed to do 100 of them for time soon. I know it will take me a LONG time, but I'm eager to try!

Box jumps is another thing I need to work on. I wish they had short boxes at the gym because I am really afraid of the tall ones. :rolleyes:
