10:00 jump rope 1,067 reps
1-20 pushups/situps
405 consecutive squats
1,892 reps
some notes:
Jumping rope for 10 minutes is a stellar cardio workout in and of utself. It warms my body and prepares me for calisthenics. I'm realizing that at 40 warm up is important.
My pushup numbers are lower for a couple of reasons. I hurt my shoulder doing defensive tactics drills at work. like I said, I'm 40, not 25! Also I'm using a stricter form, closer grip and adjusting hand position to protect the shoulder. climbing the ladder from 1 rep to 20 provides not only volume but a warm up. Additionally, combining pushups with abs concentrates the pump and burn in the upper body. Finishing with the high rep squats I feel is also cardio intensive. Conversely, whilst doing a pushup-ab-squat circuit never really felt a pump or lactic acid burn, nor did I really feel the intense cardiac output of a really long set of squats. My conditioning is improving by the day!

today was brutal. I shoveled heavy snow for 2 hours and change. Shoulders and lower back were crushed for the rest of the day. And not in a good way.

Monday February 23, 2015

10 minutes of jump rope 1,076 reps.
30 minutes on the timer then:

Pushups and situps ladders done like this:
10-1,9-1,8-1,7-1,6-1,5-1,4-1,3-1,2-1-1. This totals 220 reps each.

10 minutes left and banged out 400 squats. Just over 1900 reps in 40 minutes.

How was the sandbag walking? A good workout?

Do you use a weight vest for the doorknob rows?

Hey Chuck!

The sandbag walking was fun, it was a good change of pace. What would probably make it more effective would be to stop aND do some squats and lunges, presses and rows. The farmers walks I did though, that was just brutal. I have a 53lbs and a 72lbs kettlebell and walked with them, swapping them to even out. That was hard and only took 20 minutes to crush me. For the doorknob rows I just went "naked ". My shoulder is still healing so I've been taking it easy with pushing and pulling. I've really been killing it on the squats and jumprope and really enjoy it. This morning I came up with some ideas incorporating squats and jumping jacks, throwing step ups in there too. I'M excited! Thanks for reading and commenting!

Today's workout was shoveling snow yet again for a little over an hour. This is getting old, but all my real workouts make the shoveling that much easier.

Today's workout was 3 and a half hours of shoveling snow! We were only supposed to get 1-3 inches. We got closer to 10! At least I got to listen to 3 straight Clutch albums whilst I shoveled!

Weaponx revenge!!!
Despite being tore up from the floor up after 3 plus hours of shoveling snow (I'm over this winter by the way! where is all this global warming? ) I was motivated to train. So I did the following workout. The workout took about 40 minutes.
10 minutes jump rope 1,175 reps
20 minutes pushups descending ladders 10-1,9-1,8-1,7-1,6-1,5-1,4-1,3-1,2-1,1. I know weights are eschewed but I tried something different and superset the pushups with girevoy sport swings. I used a 26 pound kettlebell. 220 pushups and 220 swings with each arm. 10 minutes of squats to finish. Ended up with 315.
so all told a little over 2100 reps in 40 minues. AFTER SHOVELING
