:) title says it all ..... i'm trying to get my lower back into working order, preferably to a point where it doesn't hurt just by lifting something off the ground or scooting down while during a photo shoot :)

don't really know what else to write lalalallaaaaalala today was sunny, errrrrrr i don't mind the sun unless there's a nice cool breeze, otherwise, GO AWAY SUN!!!!!!

back to point, tonight i got my jump rope out, put some old carpet on the concrete outside, and did probably around 200 jumps (yes that sucks) considering i haven't jumped in ages i'm surprised i got even that far

then i got on the ab wheel, which did a number on my back about a month or so ago, which put me out of commission. been doing that slowly for a few weeks and i seem to be getting better at it.

so that's it ......... the ultimate fighter is gonna be on soon, so i'm excited about that :) ...... watching the ultimate fighter (cause i heard danzig was on it) last season is actually one reason i got the ab wheel cause i saw it on the show, read some reviews about the product, and over did it when i bought it lol good times

*waves* l8r l8r

(stupid start to a training blog eh? but i don't care)

My back sux too. I have bad posture, my shoulders are weak, and I have what people call "wingy scapula".
I always have pain in my upper left shoulder if I stand for too long. I hope I can fix that. I hate my back.

Hi endcruelty,

It's not stupid at all to start a training log. Getting your back healthy is one of the more important training goals I can think of.

As far as the ab wheel goes, and it hurting your back previously, I thought I'd mention this T-Nation article to you:

http://www.t-nation.com/readArticle.do?id=2074029

He outlines a method of progressive ab training, starting with planks, then ab rollouts using a stability ball, and so on, until you get up to using an ab wheel - I always skipped ab training, but since reading this article I've been more consistent, and it seems to be working. Anyway, I figured you might not know there were easier ab rollouts to do while working up to an ab roller, so thought it might be helpful. It sounds like you're doing ok with the ab roller now, but it can't hurt to know about some other options.

Best of luck with your goals,
Eric

did probably at least 400 jumps today (i kept aiming for a 100 in a row but messed up about 100x), yes that sucks, but i suck, so 400 is good for me :P

man do my lungs suck though, after about 3mins i started gasping for air lol how pathetic is that

i'm poor, plus i like to reuse stuff (im an eco nut) so instead of buying a new punching bag (for now at least), i'm going to take about 4 layers of old carpet and strap it together against a sturdy wall, and beat the shit out of it :) .... im calling it "the ghetto heavy bag" :)

Jumping rope: 30 minutes (rest for 1-2 minutes every 5 minutes)
Ab wheel: 20 (from the knees 1/2 way, working up to full standing)
Tire slams: 50 each side (with a stick, working up to a sludge hammer)
Burpees: 14

man i suck, but being completely lazy to getting here is quite good for me :) figure i'll just update this when i do something significantly different, considering i did 20 minutes jumping rope and about 20 ab wheels last week, and this today, that pretty significant, kinda :)

I have pain on my left shoulder as well. Not sure what the source of it is, but I've never bothered to have anyone take a look at it. Maybe I should.

i did maybe 5 or so minutes today (maybe 10, i didn't really check) with the heavy bag, and boy was it fun. i wasn't just punching it like a 10 year old would, i was actually doing combinations and working on moving around the bag so it was work, but man is it fun as hell too. i would have gone to the speed bag, but being the fat ass that i am, the heavy bag kinda tired me out. hehe

still have to make myself a Maize Ball and a Double End Bag, then i'm set :P

i was doing a little interval training during the winter, cause i can't breathe too much of this damn cold air or it begins to hurt, so i did a lot of on the spot sprinting. today i went to do some interval sprinting outside (first time running fast since trying to catch the bus a year or so ago lol) and only after 6 intervals i was fried. so much harder sprinting outside than sprinting on the spot in the basement lol ...... what a fat ass i am haha

Love checking out your log and seeing things like Burpees, Jump Rope, Sprinting. I feel at home here. :D I hear you on the cold weather sprinting though, I sub out with plyo jumps sometimes. 60 of them is approximate to a 400M. Have fun training! :boxer:
