Daily exercise log for everyone :)

Recommended Posts

Just wasn't feeling it this morning.  Did some dynamic stretches.  Did 20 minutes of steady-state on the rower.  And finished up with a brief mobility session.

 

Did just enough to get the heart rate up, warm up the muscles, elongate the spine, and get the shoulders moving like they're supposed to.

Well I sure was after my day at the gym yesterday.  I think I used muscles I did not know I had.  Forced myself to go again today because I thought they might retract if I did not keep it up.

I may need some encouragement in this department, along with the nonsmoking encouragement.   I have gained 13 pounds since quitting and it is driving me crazy.  I am not much of a gym person.  I do like to swim and walk, when the weather is nice.  The "Y" that has a pool is just too pricey.  Maybe we need to start a thread  "Linda, get that butt moving"  You guys all seem to work miracles with me - after all, you got me to quit smoking!!!!!!!

Back to the basics this morning: warmed up with some time on the rower. Performed some strength work: Front Squats, Overhead Press, Bench Press, Weighted Chin-Ups, and Sled Pulls.  Finished up with 3 rounds on the heavy bag.

My dad got a membership to the "Y" at a deeply discounted price through his insurance plan.  I don't know all the details as far as what rules apply to be eligible, but it might be worth looking into.

That is called Silver Sneakers.  Our insurance does not cover that.  Once I hit 65 and am on medicare, that will have Silver Sneakers.  I have a year to go.  This Planet Fitness is only $10. a month with no sign up fee or quit fee.

Hmmmmm.  Go to the gym or stay home.  It is cold outside and I would rather stay in the warm house.  Go to the gym or stay home.  I could clean a bathroom.  Nahhhhhh.  Linda you need to go to the gym.  Alright, I am going already.   

I guess I have to work on retraining my brain for this one.  🙄

I really do like it.  It is so cheap.  Most of the machines explain themselves.  Made it three times this week.  I am a little sore but feel so good mentally.

Hope you like it.

Did a bit of a grab bag workout this morning.  Warmed up with some intervals on the rower.  Then did some strength work: Sled Pulls, Kettlebell Swings, Rope Climbs, Roll-Outs, and Farmer's Walks.  Finished up with 3 rounds on the heavy bag, slip rope work, and footwork drills.

 

I've mentioned many times how much I like Farmer's Walks, they are awesome.  This morning was the first time I did rope climbs with a rope tied to the front-top bar of my power rack.  Be forewarned: I will likely be geeking out about this exercise in much the same way I did Farmer's Walks when I started doing them.  Dead simple exercise, but only a few sets in and my back and forearms were on fire...Good times!

Spent the morning at a climbing gym.  I've been looking to get back on some real rock since the holidays, but this damn rain just won't quit.  Sometimes you have to settle for indoor walls.

 

Did a few of top rope climbs and some bouldering.  By noon, the place was overrun with little kids.  Apparently the thing to do if you have a hyperactive child is to take them to a climbing gym and let them just run wild.  So I went back to the little weight room area and did some kettlebell exercises and some work on the campus board and fingerboard.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
