Image5Workouts for: 4/13,15,18/2015

Got lazy.
Oh, we still exercised but neglected the blog. Hopefully Floyd is OK…
Did some great and different (of course) types of work outs that some folks will hate…some folks will like…and some won’t care. Suits me!

Image27So the three workouts for this post are all based on a Tabata theme.
Essentially extrapolated from Dr. Izumi Tabata of The National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo. He developed a protocol to increase both aerobic and anaerobic conditioning. “Tabata” workouts are brief, but extremely intense.

When I say we are doing “Tabatas” Meaning we take an Image36exercise and bust your ass for 20 seconds followed by a 10 second break. The process is repeated 8 times. So a less than 4 minute process.

Oh…it is tough…

And you can do this at home!

Image32Workout for 1-19-2015
Music: John Fogerty
T-Shirt: Big In Japan

Time for a boatload of Lunges!
A variety of them.
Well and some inchworms for a “break”.


Someone wrote about “increasing the intensity”.Image1
Apparently they haven’t tried one of these.
Course…it does look easy on paper!

The Beginning: Bodyweight Lunges and Inchworms

Long Lunge
Short Lunge
Inchworms w/One Pushup

Next: DB Lunges and InchwormsImage10

Using just one DB. This may create more stability in the core.

Long Lunges
Reverse Long Lunges

Short Lunges
Reverse Short Lunges

Inchworms with DBImage12

Subsequently: One DB Overhead (lighter DB)

With the DB overhead it forces the core to work even harder.

Long Lunges
Reverse Long Lunges

Short LungesImage18
Reverse Short Lunges

Inchworms with DB and Row (heavier DB)

Then: Some more stuff!

One DB Overhead Side Lunge
Goblet Squat Side Lunge
Backward Inchworms with DB (heavier DB)Image22

And Finally:

Goblet Squat Twisting Side Lunges
Goblet Squat Duck Walk Forward
Goblet Squat Duck Walk Backward
Backward Inchworms with DB and Row (heavier DB)

In Conclusion: Optional StretchingImage30

Yep…just some stretching.




Image15Workout for 12-1-2014
Music: Alice Cooper, Heart
T-Shirt: South Park, Happy Holidays

Today was just a “conditioning” day.
Conditioning for what?
Nothing specific.
How about just for life in general?
Works for us!

First: Conditioning DrillsImage1

For lack of a better “title”.

We did 15 exercises, twice, with lateral shuffles in between.

Push Ups
Sit Ups
Leg Raises
Walk Out Push Ups
Lunges L/R
Jump Squats
Diamond Push Ups
MTN Climbers Forward
MTN Climbers To Hand
MTN Climbers TwistingImage6
Push Ups Wide
Push Ups Close

Second: Variations of Grass Drills

That’s what we called them in southern high school football.
When I lived in Colorado we called them squat thrusts or burpees.Image17
Hell, I had no idea what the coach was talking about when he called out for “grass drills”!

They were just as bad as I remembered.
So “bad” I think we’ll be doing some more of these!

Regular 2 Reps
Regular with Lunge JumpsImage13
Two Tiered
Regular with Cobra Push Ups

Broke a sweat on that one!!
