Giving the 40 day workout a rest. I think it might work better if you do it more than 4 times a week, then it doesnt take such a chunk of time.

Warm up
foam rolling
Side lying windmills x 10 each side
thoracic extenstion and rotation x 5 each side
glute mobility
third world squat (1 minute)
hamstring stretches
plantar fascia stretch
shoulder mobility drills

Complex: MMA misery 85lbs, 6reps x 3sets. 90 seconds rest. Figured I better ease back into this since I stopped doing them for so long. Boy was I wrong! These all felt ridiculously easy! Hardly breathing hard after the last set. BOOYAH!

DB Press supersetted with DB row
5 x 5 on each using 90lb DBs. Very easy... but easing back into it.

Bulgarian Split squat (body weight only)
8, 8, 8 (60 second rest)

Reverse crunches
10, 10

Cool down: usual.

Felt good to be doing something different today. Not sure if I'll keep up with something new or try and go back and finish up the 40 day workout thing. Really want to go back to doing complexes, they seem to have a significant effect on my work capacity... though the single, high rep set of heavy KB swings that I've been doing as part of the 40 day workout may be filling that role. It's kinda weird...

Hip bridges for 5 count x 10

No gym time for me this week, or next week either! Off to London! I'll probably get lots of walking in :).

Been a while since I posted. Spent the last couple of weeks only able to get into the weight room about twice a week. Trying to "ease" back into it. Also having a hard time getting motivated.

So... "easing" into it consisted of low rep, moderate weight, with semi-max each session. My squat got back up to 475, bench 315 x 6, and deadlift 455. I know there's some weird stuff going on there, but I'm not really pushing for max strength. Once I got back up to what I considered "par" for strength I decided to focus on a bit more GPP and endurance (with fat loss as a second goal). Which brought me to yesterday's workout.

11/13/12

bwt: 281

Warm up
foam rolling
side lying windmills (10 each side)
3rd world squat (1 minute)

Complex: MMA misery 85lbs x 5sets x 4reps, 60 seconds rest. Just warmed me up, didn't really tax me.

Circuit: 30 seconds rest between each exercise, 2 minutes rest between sets 4 and 5.
back squat 225 x 8 x 8
pushups 10 x 8
Inverted rows 8 x 8

Cool down: usual.

Short, sweet, and kinda vicious.
