Had good runs these past couple of weeks. Been sticking to gym except for a couple outdoor runs late in the day. Getting through the mosquitoes and other bugs trying to get up my nose and in my mouth was an added benefit to the great outdoors running experience!

Did a good 2 mile run the other day, then did the stair climber for another mile, then ran another mile. Good w/o for the legs. Woke them up from their basic running complacency ha

Glad to hear humidity is exiting our area overnight. Not too happy about the serious thunderstorms heading into our area before that happens though. Can't have any nice weather transitions in Ontario it seems..

At least it's not snowing

Finally got around to posting the video from last week.
Teeth are healing, but I can only eat soft food. Been having a lot of soup dinners.

+1 in a big way. Damn. :((

Thursday (July 18th):

3 rounds for time:
400m run
20 pullups
20 pushups
20 burpees
20 squats
20 lunges

Total time: 24 minutes.

Friday (July 19th):

3500m row

Total time: 16 minutes.

Sunday (July 21st):

4 rounds for time:
400m run
20 squats
15 pullups
10 KB Floor presses (each side w/25lb KB)

Total time: 14 minutes.

Monday (July 22nd):

2500m row

Total time: 10 minutes.

Wednesday (July 24th):

1000 stairs (each way) ***while wearing weighted vest w/12.5lbs weight***
50 pullups
50 pushups
50 situps

Total time: 28 minutes.

Let me tell you....you wouldn't think the additional 12 1/2 lbs would make a difference, but those stairs (for anyone from Hammer area - ones at the end of Dundurn Street) are cruel! I jogged up some sections, marched (aka fast walked) up some and I was dying. My legs are freaking SOOOOOREEEEEEE. Quads and calves are still burning. Been sometime since I've felt DOMS like this.

Friday (July 26th):

3000m row

Total time: 12 minutes. My legs are still sore (walking up stairs is a beotch), but I need to move before I stiffen up. Rowing was, I'm hoping, the answer to loosening up the gams.

I still have to watch how I eat, if I go full out, I end up knocking teeth together which brings a sharp pain, followed by a worry that I have done more damage.

On a side note, I did some short term, but intense damage to my collar bone/pectoral/shoulder last Saturday and I came to the conclusion that it is since I shaved my beard. I have become weaker and more injury prone. Solution, grow a bigger and better beard.

Other side note, has anyone tried Voodoo Floss for rehab/prehab work? I bought a pair of the bands and have been seeing some benefits, but am still learning them. For those who do not know, here is an example

I use a foam roller (aka the Rumble Roller) - which makes me cry out like a little girl, especially on my quads and hip flexors.

Saturday (July 27th):

I'm still sore, not as bad, but yeah still sore. So I did some KB swings for cardio.

21-18-15-12-9-6-3 then 3-6-9-12-15-18-21 reps of:

KB Swings (50LB)
Push ups

Works out to 168 reps. Total time: 25 minutes. Now my whole body is sore. LOL

This :alright: I have grown a mighty beard (the locals call me a Talib, it's that big now), and my squat poundage has gone up. Coincidence...I think not.

I have Voodoo Floss....evil but SO EFFECTIVE. Also (I posted this in the CF thread), if you are looking at mobility stuff, get Starett's book, (Becoming A Supple Leopard). I put it right up there with Starting Strength.

I took a quick look at the book in chapters a while ago, but didn't want to spend 70 bucks on it. Does it go through how to use stuff like voodoo floss? And get the most out of foam rollers and such?

(I am glad to see someone shares my understanding of beards)

It's 30 bucks cheaper if I order online and have them mail it to my house than if I drive to the store and buy it in person. This is why people are getting fat.

Went to a commercial gym today to train with some of the strongmen.

Deadlifts - 3X405, 1X500,0X545,0X525 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BOdRqS8AOY , 3X405+chains, 3X405+chains, 1X405+chains off a 3 inch platform. This felt weird getting lower, but the weight still flew up.

Squats 3X225, 3x275, switched to a cambered bar as it is easier on my shoulder, 3X315, 2X315, (ALl these done with a 3 second pause in the hole
Box Squats 3,3,1X315 of a box just below parallel

Glute Ham Raise, 10Xbw, 2X5XBW+45, then repped out another 5 after dropping the plate.

Hanging situps, 1X10, 2X5+45, then dropped the plate and repped another 5

RDL, 3X135, 2X4X185

This is the best gym workout I have had in a LONG time. I will feel this tomorrow.
