Well, more changes to life, as the State of Michigan ordered restaurants, bars, theaters, fitness centers, and many other types of businesses to close starting at 3pm yesterday. So I’m glad I stopped going to the gym last week. Looks like it’ll be garage gym workouts for the foreseeable future.
Yesterday I walked 20 minutes on the treadmill, going 1.38 miles, did some monster walks with the hip circle, and my banded PT exercises. Before I ate lunch today I did some PT exercises and the core stability work.
McGill Big 3
- 9-7-5 Curl-up
- 9-7-5 Side Plank
- 9-7-5 Bird Dog
I really wanted to do these yesterday since I’m switching them to a Monday, Thursday, Saturday schedule. Increased the reps again too.
Out in the garage at 4pm.
- Monster Walks (black band, ankles)
- 2×15 Steamboats (blue)
- 24 Walking Lunges with 30-degree diagonal step (single DB, switch arms after 12, 30#)
- 10/10 Step Downs (15″)
My left leg felt much better on the step downs today. Almost couldn’t even notice a difference.
- 20 Burpees
- 30 Box Jumps (24/20″)
- 20 Burpees
- Rest 5:00
This was my first day doing any burpees since the back tweak. My times were 3:51 and 3:45. The ultimate goal was to go the same speed or maybe even faster in the second round. After getting through my burpees 10 seconds faster I knew I could do it. Felt great that I was able to pull that off!
- 100 Band Pull Aparts (blue)
- 100 Band Curls (red)
I did 50-30-20 on the pull aparts and 4×25 on the curls. Both were harder than expected!
