    I can't stop looking at the time/distance and can't concentrate on anything but that. Makes for a long and boring cardio session
    Its like standing in formation for hours on end: find something to focus on in your direct field of view and just check out...

    I need to stop browsing on the app. I don't know who is repping who at this point. I'll get some computer time in soon to see the latest and greatest. I agree, luke is a fine pic, even if he's borderline gay.

    Xfit day ?

    Warmup:
    10 Burpees
    Samson stretch
    Groiners
    Arm swings
    Leg swings
    Over and backs
    Pass throughs
    Probably some other shlt I forgot
    Foam roll glutes, hams, calves, IT band, quads

    El WODDO (Spanish for "the WOD")
    "Helen meets Grace"

    400m run
    21 53lb KB swings (American, so above head)
    12 pull-ups
    3 circuits of this followed by...

    30 clean and jerks @135lbs

    Completed all in 13:21

    Pretty fun time. Didn't puke today. Was a two person effort so if there were 21KB swings, I did 11 and Joe did 10 etc. We split the C&Js. Today is the first time I've ever done C&Js so I spent a good amount of time this morning watching tutorials. I like the movement and will continue to use it. 135 was a very manageable weight, and I feel like I could have done far more.

    I hate the idea of American KB swings.


    It just looks like a lot of force applied directly to the shoulder girdle.


    Looks like an awful workout.


    <----- Never doing 30 C+J. Ever. Not even with only the bar.

  7. Without multi-quoting,

    Yes, the elite level xfit athletes are beasts.
    Yes, top level bbers are also beasts in their own right. The major difference for me is that if I were to look like, say, Jay Cutler, it would compromise a lot of my mobility and more than likely the endurance that I seek.

    Don't worry PF, you'll catch up.

    Thanks drew, I'm trying to stay fast. Only reason I use the treadmill is because I don't like running in cold rain, and I have an option.

    I don't know what to take from this.

Of course I plan on a show in March but after that I am probably going to change the focus of my training to something more along these lines. I actually find some of those grueling time workouts more rewarding than going in and doing long rest periods for beach muscle. Don't get me wrong though I love working for beach muscle too but I think I have plenty of that and it isn't going to go away any time soon.
    Tbh, I don't see this as something that's gonna make me some skinny dude with no muscles that can just do kipping pull-ups for an hour straight. I'm getting DOMS so I know that's a sign of something happening.

    boldened cannot be overstated - I am experiencing this (on a smaller level) right this minute
    it kinda sux

    In your case, though, it seems to be natural progression. Walking on stage at 175ish again doesn't seem to be in the cards. Packing on a ton of muscle is gonna slow anyone down (ask Barry Bonds). I think, though, if you continue to play tennis and partake in activities that require a decent level of mobility/agility, a lot of both can be spared. At what point, if any, are you going to decide that enough is enough?

    very nice points
    dunno when I will say enough is enough - I do intend to do an ebb & flow protocol tho any time while bulking ie cals up for X amount of time, cals down a bit for awhile, repeat
    I cannot see just running a full-on bulk and add add add, would make me feel like blimp bigtime

    well if I added 50lbs in say 8-10yrs or so, had time to get acclimated to the extra weight/size, I imagine I would be pretty flexible too
    I ain't no spring chicken no more tho fellas, arthritis be on the way before too long and all that good stuff

    That's a good goal instead of 50lbs in ten days, like a lot of people seem to shoot for. Seems way more efficient to me to put it on at a slightly slower pace and adjust activity level accordingly in an attempt to maintain mobility (not referring to your recent addition of a 3rd grader to your weight. I understand that pre-cut you were close to 200lbs anyway so this isn't as drastic as it would seem in your current log).
    Speaking of weight, 181 dry this morning. Feeling like a real lightweight at this point. It's fine though, as I don't have a target weight, just want to be stronger and faster for longer.

    You guessed it, xfit.

    Warmup
    200m run
    Leg swings
    Arm circles
    Groiners
    Over and backs
    Samson stretch
    20m high knees
    20m buttkicks
    20m crossovers

    10 push-ups
    10 sit-ups X3
    200m run

    Weighted pull-ups
    3,3,3
    25, 35, 45

    7,5,3
    45,35,35

    WOD
    4 rounds for time
    21 double-unders (two turns of the jump rope on one jump
    15 knees to elbows (hanging in pull-up position, bring knees to elbows)
    9 24"box jumps

    Completed in 10:04

    Not proficient at double-unders so did ten each set and subbed the rest for 50 singles.
    Subbed last two sets of knees to elbows for some sit-up thing on this contraption where your butt is on pads, ankles are locked in and you can lean back well beyond horizontal, it was just as challenging (shoulder was done with any hanging exercises).

  24. what an interesting layout, not used to seeing such activity
    those knees to elbows for #15 are very impressive, esp on top of everything else you did

    that contraption is called a GHD sit up. Careful with how far back you go if you are new at them, you can hurt your back and actually really over exert your lower abdominals. (Trust me, it took me a while of mobility work to get comfortable with these, but love em now). Use it to stretch when u are in the gym, that'll help. Good time on the wod tho!
