Thanks MF! Sometimes the foam roller is a necessary evil!!

Tuesday, 9/10/13
warm-ups: Indian clubs, lat-pulldowns x 3 sets, light DB bench press x 3 sets
1. floor press: barx10, 65x8, 80x5, 95x5, 115x3, 135x3, 155x1, 170x1, 155x1
2. barbell extension: barx10, 55x8, 65x8 / 3
3. pushdown: 2x20
4. chest supported row: 3x10
5. lat pulldown: 2x12
6. laterals / rear delts / hammer curls: 3 sets done in a circuit

*Shoulder was starting to feel it on floor presses so rather than go up to 185x1, I kicked it back down to 155 and called it a day. Back when I was powerlifting my floor press was around 245 for 1, it's amazing how much weaker dropping 50 lbs will make you! Even if it was mostly fat!!!

Thursday, 9/12/13
Ok, so my back was in spasm today, pretty sure it was from being cramped up in the dentist’s chair for 2 ½ hours yesterday - however, I am amalgam filling free now, so it was worth it! Today was supposed to be max effort lower body, I just did the best I could. Long cycle wasn’t happening, so I did a few light sets with the 12kg bells.

warm-up with foam rolling, lacrosse ball on the piriformis, stretching and Indian club swinging

1a. long cycle: 12kg x 5 / 5 sets
1b. pulldowns: 100 x 8 / 5 sets
2a. goblet squat: 12kg x 5 / 3 sets
2b. reverse hyper: 65 x 10 / 3 sets
3. McGill’s big 3: curl up, side bridge, bird dogs x 1 round
4. sled dragging w/ 70lbs: 5 trips forward and 5 trips backward

Done. Back is feeling ok. A little stiff. Glad I did something though.

Cool log Scott.

What is a long cycle? That is a kettlebell workout right? What does it consist of?
Also, on the indian clubs, I noticed you were using 3 pounders. What weight range do you use for them? What's the difference in the workout type versus the weight of them? I have never used indian clubs but do plan to get some and wasn't sure what weight to get.

Thanks

Phyto,

Yes the long cycle is a kettlebell exercise, it is a clean & jerk of two kettlebells (the event I compete in, as many reps as possible in 10:00 without setting the bells down). For the clubs I use Motion RX brand clubs in 1, 2 and 3 lb. For pre-hab, re-hab, and neural development the 1's are the best. If you're looking for strength through ROM the 2's and 3's are good, but your shoulders need to be healthy. They are awesome. Start out with the 1's and Dr. Thomas' DVD. There are also some basic instructional vids on my site you should have access to!

Thanks,
Scott

1. long cycle: warmed up with the 12s, 16s, 20s, and 24kgs - then: 24kg x 20/5:00 @ a steady 4 RPM. This wasn't outstanding, but it's my first time going 5:00 w/ 24kgs in a while so I'm happy.
