Afternoon: Legs

Warmup: Mobility drills from DVD

1) Split Squat Iso-Hold - 60s per side
2) Box Squat (from hassock) - 10, 3 x 10 x 20kg, 10

SSIH: 60 seconds straight through.

Added a KB to my box squats for a change. Felt okay, but some awareness of my lower back tightening a bit. Finished with extra illipsoas stretching.

12/30/13

AM: Legs

Warmup: Mobility drills

Box Squat (from hassock) - 150
Squat Hold - 60s

***

Box squats - felt fine. I had more reps in me but not a lot of patience to knock them off.

Squat hold - basically sit in a deep, comfortable squat and stay there, then stand unassisted straight up. Felt good.

1/1/14

AM: Mobility drills from DVD

Pushup - 3 x 15

***

Pushups were harder than I'd expected. I was expecting 3 easy sets of 15 and I got two easy and one hard. Need to work on my shoulder endurance a bit more because that is where I felt it.

1/6/14

Morning: Squat stretches

Afternoon: Full body

Warmup: Foam rolling, lacrosse ball rolling, BPAs, Mobility drills, TKEs x 20, Airdyne x 5 mins (1.7m).

1) Plank Series - 60s front plank, 30s per side side plank, 60s front plank
2a) Tube Press - 4 x 25 x grey tube
2b) 2H Cable Row - 4 x 25 x #16+10#
3a) High Step Up - 3 x 10e x 25, 30, 30
3b) Swiiss Ball Squat - 3 x 15 x 4s
3c) Calf Raise - 3 x 100 x bw
4a) Curl and Press - 3 x 25 x 15# DBs, no lockout
4b) Straight Arm Pulldown - 3 x 25 x #10
5a) Band Pull-Apart - 3 x 25
5b) Dead Stop Seated Lateral Raise - 3 x 15 x 10, 8, 8
6) Prowler Sprint (H/L) - 6 x EconoProwler + 110

Notes:

Warmups - good, but long.

Press/Pull - press was hard, pull was easy but I can't figure out how to add weight. May have to rig two cable stacks together somehow.

Step Ups - plan was reverse lunge to step up but I hurt my toe, so lunging back was extremely painful and encouraged sloppy form. So I did regular step ups.

Sqauts - added 1s to bottom hold in lieu of more reps.

Calf raises - felt fine.

Curl & Press - just short of lockout. 25 was good and hard.

SA Pulldowns - need to go up a little.

BPA/lat raises - felt fine, could do more BPAs next time, needed to scale down the weight on the raises.

Prowler - a little on the light side, but that was good since I hadn't run it in a while. Next time, low then high.
