Sounds like a good combo, so it's:

Left hand TGU -> switch to right -> snatch + windmill -> back to floor with right hand then repeat

Caught some type of stomach bug Thursday after I donated blood that morning. Been trying to recover since then. I haven't been doing much of anything other than trying to keep my food down! Great time to get a stomach bug after donating a pint of blood! However word around the office is I wasn't the only person to get laid low by giving blood. Weird coincidence?

Nasty coincidence. How you feeling now?


Think you've got the idea with the TGU combo. At the top of the TGU drop the left hand from above your head and immediately switch the KB to the right hand and snatch back up (and vice versa). Just do a set of 10 (effectively 5 reps on each side) to get the feel for it.

I'm probably 80%, able to keep my food down it just makes me super uncomfortable to eat. Might train tomorrow, we'll see.

You better? There is some weird stuff going around. Several people I know were knocked around by a stomach bug over the last couple of days. Get better.

All my friends I talk with are getting serious spring fever. Hell I have it and I am supposed to be living in the Sunshine State!

It was a great day to be outside!

February 10, 2010
1. Warmup
jump rope - 100 singles, 10L/R, 50 singles, 15L/R, 30 singles
400m jog - 1:45
Sprint warmup: 2 sets x 15m's
high knees
butt kicks
lateral shuffle
cariocas
a skips
strides - 50m, 50m

2. Energy
5 x 100m @ 80% w/ 4 minutes rest
400m walk
active assisted hamstring stretch - 3 sets of 6 per leg

Notes:
-Decided to sprint today, not terrible, legs felt like lead on my the jump rope today though.
-During my sprint rests I was helping the kids workout as they wished, like wheelbarrow followed by some KB lifting, Hunter wanted me to hold his feet while he did a wheelbarrow using the ab wheel. Fun stuff.
-On a proud Dad note, Connor who is 4 and weighs...maybe 45 #'s picked up my 24kg KB for 4 reps. I was shocked to even see him do one!

Hardstyle?

Do you ever get that sensation of a hangover when you jump rope? Never experience anything like it running, jumping, burpees etc but damn does that scramble my brains sometimes.

Man James beat me to the punch. Well now we know his 4RM... you can start the programming appropriately. Let's see on the Wendler scale that would be precisely and exactly a 1 RM 59.83 LB's. So he is at 1.32 X BW.

I am bored at work trying to get people on the phone.

I just love being able to do whatever my kids want to do. It means the world to me. I am proud of him as well!

He was so proud of himself probably because I was standing there with my jaw on the ground. But now he seem to have caught whatever stomach ailment I had, then Hunter had so he's a miserable little boy. Can't be a good sign if stuff starts coming out both ends...

Foam rolling - IT bands, adductors, quads, hip flexors, thoracic, lats, chest, tris
hip flexor stretch -0:45L/R
