At the moment, I'm doing one body part a day but I switch up from time to time. I know how many sets I'm doing and a basic idea of what I want to do but train largely instinctively. For your info, an average arm day is like...

Barbell curls - 6 sets
Dumbell curls - 4 sets
Concentration curls - 4 sets
Cable curls - 4 sets
Tricep pushdowns - 6 sets
Dips - 5 sets
Rope pushdowns - 4 sets
Cable kickbacks - 4 sets
Behind the back wrist curls - 4 sets

I Googled the POPAT/PARE to take a look at the vault rail. It looks like something you could easily build with a couple of 2x4's (maybe with some foam along the top of the rail to prevent splinters). Maybe that's an option for you as well.

Friday (June 14th):

1000m row
25 pullups
25 chinups
25 pushups
25 squats
1000m row

Total time 12 minutes.

So my workouts have been going great! This 'core' program I've started to increase speed seems to be working. Yesterday I ran my personal best (for the last 2years) and ran my 5k in 24:32. I continued on to finish 6k in 29:05. The best part is I didn't tax myself at all. It's an interesting feeling! I'm hoping to get under 24:00 within a month for 5k.

In August I'll be backing off of speed and concentrating on my Half that I want to do in November. I'll still be trying to work on a faster pace, but not as intense because of distance increases.

I think this training has also Helped my baseball! I don't ever 'slide' onto base, (at my age I may never get back up :shock: But my runs from base to base and home are faster :alright:

Shawshank: Can't wait to hear how your Competition goes!
