 Workout for 7-11-2018 and 7-16-2018

T-Shirt: “You Can Go Home Now” and “60 Is The New 40”

Music:  Old Stuff

My birthday was on July 5th. I didn’t have a birthday workout because I was in Las Vegas for UFC International Fight Week.

But when I got back I had a plan…

“61” was the theme because that’s the number of this birthday. So I had to make a play off that.

So I thought I’d add a zero at the end. Heck that was only 610 reps of whatever we were going to do…so I added a couple more things.

We ended up doing 610 Chair Squats, Burpees, and Pushups. However this workout ended up like last year…It took 2 days. Partly because of the heat, some because it was hard, and partly because I started adding some stretching the last 10 minutes of the workouts to kinda cool off/drink some water (or beer) before jumping in the car and heading home!

We aren’t judgmental. Some folks did “complete good form” reps and some folks did modified reps. Didn’t really matter. Everyone was going to be doing at the minimum of 610 of each exercise.

And a few people did more!

Not me!!!

Day One started at 102 degrees. Day Two was in the upper 90s.

Day One Instructions:

  1. Get a pen/paper.
  2. Do 12 Chair Squats, 12 Pushups, 12 Burpees.
  3. Write “1”.
  4. Repeat to “50”.
  5. Then do 10 more reps of each exercise.

“Cool down”??

Stretching with beverage of choice: Water or Beer

Day Two Instructions:

  1. Get a pen/paper.
  2. Do 12 Chair Squats, 12 Pushups, 12 Burpees.
  3. Write “1”.
  4. Repeat to “50”.
  5. Then do 10 more reps of each exercise

“Cool down”…Again!!??

Some more stretching with beverage of choice: Water or Beer

Workout for 7-9-2018

T-Shirt: BEER HUNTER

Music: Old Stuff
It’s been hot! Duh? It’s July and we’re in Georgia!
I tell people we have air in the winter and heat in the summer. Pretty much true.

The later part of the workout we had an “indoor snow ball fight”. Yep, part of the workout. May sound easy but it isn’t. It’s tough…but it’s kinda fun.

 

First: Warm Up???

We usually use agility ladders during the winter for a warm up. Then gradually strip away the clothes. I decided to use them today just for the hell of it.

Agility Ladder and Burpees. Each drill done down and back with 3 burpees in between each. 9 Different foot drills, down and back. Total of 6 burpees each drill. Simple math, 54 burpees.

Second: Chair Squats

Lean back when standing and lean back when seated.

  • 20 Wide
  • 20 Not so Wide
  • 20 Feet just outside of chair legs
  • 20 Feet just inside of chair legs
  • 20 Feet together
  • 10 Left foot in front of Right
  • 10 Right foot in front of Left
  • 10 Left foot back Lunge Squat
  • 10 Right foot back Lunge Squat

 

Third: Chair Squats and Poles

Squat, twist, lean back when seated

  • 20 Wide
  • 20 Not so Wide
  • 20 Feet just outside of chair legs
  • 20 Feet just inside of chair legs
  • 20 Feet together

Fourth: Chairs, Poles, Modified Burpees

Squat, twist, lean back when seated

3 Modified or Chair burpees after each set of squats.

  • 10 Wide
  • 10 Not so Wide
  • 10 Feet just outside of chair legs
  • 10 Feet just inside of chair legs
  • 10 Feet together

Fifth: Indoor “Snowball Fight”

A pile of white socks for the snowballs.

On “GO” everyone runs and gets one “ball”. You are only allowed one ball in your hand at a time.

You try and hit other people. You have to jump up to throw the “ball”. If they get hit they get hit they must do 5 push ups before they can get back in the game.

The first round was for 4 minutes. Doesn’t sound like much but it was tiring!

The second round lasted 3 minutes but instead of push up we did 2 burpees with push ups if you got hit.

Sixth: “Cool down”??

Stretching with beverage of choice: Water or Beer.

And it did “cool off” by the end of the hour!

Music: Mothers Finest

I was “nominated” by two individuals to do the Pushup Challenge. This is/was to raise awareness that about 8000 US Veterans take their own lives per year.

This averages out to about 22 per day.

So the “rules” are:

  • Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day
  • Every day you record yourself doing 22 pushups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted (from your knees) pushups or that you have to stop and take a break that’s fine but try to get them all done in one video (videos optional)
  • Every day you must nominate a different person, try to choose people you think will want to do this and/or have the ability to do it.
  • And finally, have fun with this. This is a simple and fun way to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware about.

If you or someone you love is or may be suffering from PTSD, do not be afraid to seek help.

I don’t always follow rules. So I did this workout with a few of my friends. They didn’t know at the start what we were going to do. Heck half the time neither do I!

OK so it’s 22 reps of pushups but of 22 different kinds of pushups. That workout would have been too easy so we threw in 22 Squats and 22 Crunches in between each set of Pushups.
