    I have been doing the same simple workout since January, 3-7 times per week. I run about 4 miles in about :40 minutes, and then on a Century BOB I throw 70 L-R jab combinations, 70 L-R body combinations, 70 body-body-uppercut combinations, and 70 jab-KO combinations. Surprisingly, I haven’t become bored, but rather I have come to enjoy the consistency.

    A few times, when I am at a place where I can get away with it, I have done the run with my rifle.

    After reading some of the posts, here, I am thinking about adding in pull-ups and maybe burpees.

    Yesterday’s:

    Dumbbell Bench Press 3×8

    5 Rounds for Time:
    .5 mile Airdyne Bike (no sitting allowed)
    8x Strict L-Sit Ring Pull Ups

    Nothing special about this workout but I mention it because the Schwinn Airdyne is one of only two “machines” in my home gym (other is C2 rower). The airdyne, especially when not sitting, closely mimics moving up the VTC hills. Sure, you could go drive to some steep hills (if you have them in your AO) but this has a big convenience factor for fitting something into a varied workout or on days when you’re short on time.

    It’s also not a very popular piece of equipment and has been around for a long time (1980’s?), so it can often be found at yard sales and the like. The big advantage to it over some other aerobic pieces of equipment, is that resistance increases with speed. This allows you great flexibility in power output from very little, to extraordinary, based on the goal of the workout. Also, on incredibly hot/humid days, the air it puts out helps keep you cool (similarly it can be brutal in the winter). When seated, it allows for a zero impact aerobic activity. It incorporates the arms as well, for an (almost) full body workout. Together with one leg and arms, it can be used effectively while recovering from a leg injury.

    Keep your eyes peeled for an old Schwinn Airdyne, you won’t regret it (except when you’re getting your ass kicked by it :yahoo: )

    In line with @johnnymac‘s post on PT while traveling, I submit the following.

    Tonight’s Moseby inspired shuttle runs were on a poorly maintained tennis court outside my hotel. Each round was about 312 yards and broken down into 12 legs or reps that were about 26 yards long. I did 4 rounds after a short warm-up. Total distance was just shy of a mile including said warm up.

    My first round was fairly “clean” and agile up till the last leg where I got a bit sloppy. Rounds 2-4 were not pretty and I probably looked like the cross between a new born giraffe and a 90 year old man during the direction changes.

    Data:
    312y in 1:27
    312y in 1:28
    312y in 1:33
    312y in 1:37

    Damn, someone other than me or @tango posting a workout?!

    Well done. Shuttle runs can be pretty brutal. Just a thought, you could add in burpees every time you get back to the start point. Great for training fire and movement.

    Found the hotel bar…

    Tonight’s festivities includ a run to CVS and back ( just shy of 2 miles) and some Oly complexes.

    Each complex was made up of a power clean followed by a front squat and finished with an overhead press before quietly putting the bar down to reset. I did 4 sets of 5 in about 15 minutes including way too much rest. Sets 1 and 2 were at 105 and the last two were 95. The 95lbs sets were not too hard, but the sets at 105lbs were quite challenging. I could not sting more than a couple reps together at 105. Had I gone any heavier I would have been stuck pulling singles or started lossing the bar and dropping stuff.

    The barbell was a department store special designed for use with a really sketchy bench. Using iron plates for Olympic lifts makes the reset a little harder since you can’t just drop the bar when there are guest rooms next door. The plates also moved a lot since the bar’s collars or the plates themselves were a bit out of spec.

    Tonight’s hotel workout used the stairwell. The building is 5 floors tall with a roof access door making up the 6th flight.

    It was a 20 min As Many Flights As Possible (AMFAP?) effort. I climbed 90 flights and decended 93 before time ran out.

    There were quite a few confused guests. I only stumbled once on the way up and once on the way down.

    I did the following on Sunday:

    1 mile run
    100 burpees
    1 mile run

    It is one of JohnnyMac’s travel METCONS from another thread, and it wrecked me. I finished it in a few seconds past 41 minutes. The burpees took way too long; I don’t do them enough. The second mile was a sad shuffle. But, I finished it. I will probably run this one again in a few months as an inspection of my progress.

    The number of sad shuffles I’ve done are too many to count. They’re character building.

    It doesn’t matter how bad things get, as long as you persevere.

    Doing more kettlebells at home now and I came up with a system to keep track of systems: put some coins next to a jar, each coin is a set of 10 reps. Aiming for 10 sets a day for now and work up to 30 of various swings.

    Nice dude!

    Nothing exciting on my end. But did a lot of ring work yesterday after some strength. My new favorite core-focused thing is what I’m calling an L-sit drop. You go from the position in the pic below, to a hanging L-sit, while maintaining the L-sit position through the drop. Can your core handle the G’s?

    Second squat session of the week.

    Followed by:

    15 min AMRAP, w/ 20# vest:
    30m Sandbag Bear Hug Carry
    5x Pullups
    10x Push-ups

    Sounds easy, but was brutal. Bear hug carries are great for core strength.

    Speaking of bear hugs. Did this earlier this week, heavy sandbag (80ish lb)
