I was too tired from the weekend to golf, so it was a complete rest day. I was right about losing weight from working on the truck in the garage all weekend in that heat. Was 205 in the morning yesterday.
Now that the back rehab is done, I figure I’ll try out some of the other Active Life programs, especially as my 2-day/week membership at the gym is through the end of this month and then there is an ownership change taking place. Looking forward to getting in the gym more often again. Went out in the garage around 4pm.
Active Life – Thick Pack – Warmup
- 20 Side Shuffles (5m)
- 2:00/2:00 Banded Posterior Hip Distraction
- 10/10 Lateral Leg Swings
- 10/10 Lateral Box Step-ups (18″)
- 5/5 Eccentric Ankle Dorsiflexion
Active Life – Shoulder Flexion
4 Sets (2x each arm)
- 50m Overhead Carry (70# KB)
- Rest 30-60s
Might as well try to correct this shoulder impingement, which has kept me off the rig.
- 300m Run
- 30 Back Squats (135#)
- 300m Run
I guess counts with 3 are my thing lately. Slow but unbroken on the squats and felt pretty good on the run. Funny how dropping 10 pounds makes running easier. 🙂 Finished in 5:21.
Active Life – Thick Pack – Workout
- 1:00/1:00 KB Psoas Mobilization
- 10 Glute Bridges (3s hold)
- 10 Curl-ups (3s hold)
This first day of “Thick Pack” work was exactly the same as I’d done in some of the other programs. Got through 5 rounds.
