Friday the 13th on the Road! Early morning workout.
Tabata Squats: 14,6x13,15
Right shoulder still giving me some trouble. Grrrrr. Falling back to "do something." I was at the gym teaching one of our kids to life, so I did some left arm triceps extensions, curls, and planks. Then we ran around the track for some conditioning.
Rows 65x10x2, 75x10
Leg raises 20x10x2, 10
Read about cold therapy for mood elevation. Decided to start giving it a try this morning. Last four minutes of my shower with the water as cold as it'd go.
Late morning: Stair climbing. 4 lb added. Skipping steps. 3 ascents of 9 stories. Pushups at the top floor each time: 20, 20, 10.
Tabata pushups 5x8
Tabata squats 13x6,12,10
Cold therapy Day 2
Cold therapy day 3
Tabata mountain-climbers. Ouch. That's gotta win some kind of award for most misery for how easy it looks like it'd be.
Leg raises: 20x3
Tabata squats: 13x6, 14, 14
CT day 4
DB Presses: 30x10x3 (testing shoulder)
DB Curls: 32.5x10x2,5
Planks: 1:15, 1:15, 1:40
CT Day 5
Stair climbing, skipping steps, 8 lb added. Too much traffic on my usual steps, so had to improvise. 9 stories x 1; 7 stories x 2; 4 stories x 1
187.6. Nauseous when I woke up this morning. Ugh.
CT Day 6
Afternoon: I was planning to take a day off today, but my brain was locking up on a major project that's due tomorrow. I decided to stop and do some tabata squats to get some extra blood flowing to my brain and hopefully get a shot of endorphins. 14x8. Now back to work. Report: this worked extremely well. Definitely adding this to my tool chest.
Circa 9/27 : forgot to record a couple of workouts. Did some pullups during one, but only got 5,5,3. Also added some windshield wipers: 5,5,5. Stinkin up the place.
9/28/2019 early morning tabata pushups. 6,5x7
Stair climbing. Skipping steps. 3x9 stories with 12-15 lb added. Barely able to walk after this.
Early morning, 4:30, before heading to the airport.
Tabata Squats 13x8
Continued CT. Lost count of number of days. It's getting quite a bit easier. The shower water will be getting colder soon..
Late afternoon, two time zones away. Fasted 22 hours at this point. Workout before eating: tabata mountain climbers and leg raises 20,20,9. Now time to eat!
AM: I think I got a touch of food poisoning last night. Crapped myself silly. Woke up feeling like crap probably from dehydration. Drank 50 oz of water and waited about a half-hour. Then three sets of near-max pushups with two minutes in between: 30,15,10, mostly to get some endorphins and get my day off to a better start. CT after that. Feeling pretty OK now.
PM: Three sets of 15 pushups, 15 situps, and 30 squats for time. 10:10
AM: tabata mountainclimbers 34 reps x 8. Continued CT.
PM: It has been a very long day with a ton of stress, sleep deprivation, and tight deadlines. Made a huge push on the most critical project until my brain locked up at about 5 pm. Did 20 burpees, took a cold shower, and headed to dinner. Hopefully, it'll be unlocked when I get back. Edit: Worked like a charm. That's twice in a row, so it's my new go-to strategy.
Early morning before heading to airport. Tabata squats 14x2, 13x4, 12, 12. Followed by CT. Now I'm awake!
PM, back to the gym. Shoulder feeling OK.
