Another good walking day, since we have no electric I had to hike to the supermarket every day for food.

11/5/12

Afternoon: Workout

Warmup: Mobility drills + TKEs

1a) Barbell Pushup - 3 x 10 x bodyweight, rack #1
1b) Standing 2H Cable Row - 3 x 20 x #16+10# plate
1c) Pallof Press 2.0 - 3 x 20s per side x yellow tube
2) Backward Prowler Drag - 4 trips @ +200, +250, +300, +300
3a) DB RDL - 3 x 10 x 20# DBs
3b) Swiss Ball Jackknife - 3 x 10
4) Band Pull Apart - 100 total

***

BB Pushups - I wanted to try some light two-arm pressing, but my shoulder didn't like it at all. That's a bad sign.

Rows - these felt fine.

PP - Hard but good.

Prowler drags - 300 was solid, but I need to do a lighter warmup first.

RDLs - felt these, it's been a while and I'm tight.

SB Jackknife - again, been a long time, so these weren't easy.

Arm stuff - because biceps and triceps are people, too.

11/6/12

Elliptical - 5 minutes at level 10/100 (max)

***

Literally had 5 minutes to exercise and no time to clean up after, so I couldn't blitz out any intervals. I just did a tiny bit of cardio and I'll hope it helped something.

11/12/12

Afternoon:

Warmup: Foam rolling + mobility drills

1a) TKE - 2 x 20 each leg x orange band
1b) X-Band Walk - 2 x 10 each direction
2a) One-Arm DB Press (left only) - 10 x 25, 10 x 45, 10 x 50, 10 x 55
2b) One-Arm Cable Row (left only) - 10 x #14, 2 x 10 x #15
2c) Pulldown Crunch - 3 x 10 x 5s x black band
3) Prowler EDT (high handles only) - 22 trips x EconoProwler+190 in 15 minutes
4a) DB Curl -3 x 10 x 25
4b) Overhead Triceps Extension - 3 x 15 x #10

***

TKEs/X-Band Walks - just an extension of warmup.

One-arm stuff - sparing my still-hurting right shoulder.

Prowler EDT - this is me being a wuss. I'd done 26 trips with +180, and I was dreading doing 28 trips. It seemed a lot to just back in on. So I went with +190 knowing anything I got was a PR. Good thing I did - 22 trips just about floored me.

Bis/Tris - felt good.

Afternoon Workout

Warmup: Foam rolling, mobility drills

1a) TKE - 2 x 15 x grey band
1b) X-Band Walk - 2 x 10 each direction x orange band
2a) One-Arm KB Press (left only) - 2 x 10 x 35, 6 x 45 + 4 x 35

TKEs/X-band: good warmup continuation

KB Press - working back to 3 x 10 x 45

Rows - even 10 x 65 wasn't hard

Lunges - felt great but hard

Pistols - felt hard, but just banged them out. If you're curious what "no rest" means, the entire set of 3 x 5 per leg was finished between the beginning drumbeats of "Paint it Black" and the end of the song.

Curls - Because my triceps were sore but my left biceps wasn't at all.
