    First, because of tennis blow I have not done any strength training since may 10. Because of knee tendinitis I haven't done any cardio work in two weeks. I was getting tired of doing nothing so I modified an Xfit workout around my aches an pains.

    My planned workout was rounds of 21-15-9 of SLDLx185 and bw dips. My strength has gotten so poor that my workout was

    21 SLDL and dips
    15 SLDL
    5 dips
    9 SLDL
    3 dips

    In 11:30.

    I did all sets of SLDL un broken. My first round of dips of 7 and than random sets of singles and doubles. It was awful.

    On the bright side, after I stopped breathing hard, I rode my bike around the block with very little knee discomfort.

    Spent six hours in the hot (for her LOL) sun putting together a swing set. There must be a trick to those blind bolted connections!

    I did Day 1 and 2 of the Diesel Crew Shoulder Prehab the last couple of days. My right shoulder has been sore for weeks or months, and I'm trying to clear that up so I can start something interesting.

    185 on the SLDL seems like an impressive weight for a 21,15,9 conditioning workout. That's almost Diane with SLDL subbed for DL.

    That's what I was going for. I had to do sldl instead of dls because of my knee pains. I should have done db presses instead of dips, I could have picked a light enough weiight to get all reps, but was afraid presses would hurt my elbows.

    Any indication of improvement?

    BTW, it was only 80 here today.

    No improvement so far. Probably way too early.

    Burpees continue to kick my arse. I switched from 5 sets of 20, to 10 sets of 10.

    I found (by experimenting) that the boards used as "spacers" on the floor supports above my head in the cellar will support my weight for doing pull-ups.

    I also found an oar (I think that's what it is) which I laid perpendicularly across the "ridge beam" then shimmed with 2x4s and such to take up the space between it and the floor above it, so I can hang on the end and do v-handle pull-ups. It's kinda loosey-goosey though so I have to be deliberate and slow or I will upset my carefully arranged stack of 2x4s and then I will probably break the oar.

    A few years ago, I was attempting to improve my 100 burpees score, and tried several combinations. I found a tabata-like method was good for systematic progression. You might consider giving that a try if you're in experimentation mode.

    Workout 1: Set timer to repeatedly beep at 30 sec. Do four burpees, then rest the remainder of the 30 sec. Repeat until you get to 100 and record the total time.

    Workout 2: Set timer to repeatedly beep at 30 sec. Do five (or a few sets of five followed by sets of four) burpees and rest the remainder of the 30 sec. Repeat until you get to 100 and record the total time.

    Workout 3: Continue bumping up the reps.

    At that time, I could do a burpee in about three seconds, so I was settled in trying to do seven in about 21 sec. and rest nine sec., and repeat.

    Standard cool-down was quivering in a fetal position. :rofl:

    Great idea, CJ! Yesterday I did:

    Press 3x115x3 sets
    Cleans 5x105x3 sets
    Rows 5x145x3 sets

    Hope that's right, I'm too lazy to go to the basement for my log.

    With the meds, which limit my heart rate and BP, I am on I find that doing more than 10 causes me to become very sloppy after 10. I am pretty well knackered at 10 so I stop there and wait until my breathing returns to "normal" then I start the next set. It's kinda like burpee intervals.

    Me too; you know you are toasted when lying down causes you to yell "no mas".

    Thanks, but I really can't take credit. Back in the day there were tWo threads that created a lot of traffic, one like this and one to report PRs and goals reached. If may failing memory serves these threads were created by either BradCR and/or turbo rocket.

    I stole the idea hoping to generate some traffic.

    Hey DBD, did I credit the right people?

    Turbo started the one that had many replies. BradCR might've started a similar one--not sure.

    The credit goes to TR then, thanks. Was it called the good, the bad and the ugly?

    I'm getting really sore. Two months away from any strength training and 29 body weight dips can create pain. Time for contrasting enemas.

    I rode my bike for the irate time since tendonitis. Easy ride. With fingers crosses and knocking on wood, I think my knee is ok.

    I feel good! Went for an approximately 60 minute long ride and no knee pain!

    Squat 3x255x 3 sets, 1x225x 3 sets
    Bench 5x175x 2 sets

    Then I thought I was going to pass out. I may yet go back down and finish my benches and hit the treadmill.
