Jamessina's Training Journal

#1 Postby Jamessina » Sun Jan 01, 2012 2:37 pm

Happy New Year, to you, to me. Let the training begin!

January 1st
Food: Ate poorly for breakfast, bagel with tofutti and tomato and leftover homemade marble cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World- but hydrated often through noon and had one green tea.

Completed a quick workout as children are waking up from their nap soon! Just got the New Balance Minimus sneakers and they are insanely amazing.
Warm up run, 800 meters
Warm up: 15 pushups, 30 hollow rocks, 20 overhead squats, 10 shoulder mobility exercises, 10 crossover hamstring stretches

Workout: 3 Rounds of: 5 handstand pushups, 10 pushups, 15 squats in 3min51seconds

Will continue to rampage through our cleaning the house today, which burns tons of my empty cupcake calories from entertaining last night!

Hey you mentioned cross fit a few times in your training. I'm curious, are there a lot of people that you know in the cross fit community that are doing the paleo diet? I have talked to a few different people that have been serious into cross fit and they were all doing that. Actually dating a girl that was doing cross fit and the paleo diet and I read a book on the diet. It didn't really sound too healthy to me, the diet that is.
Thoughts?

Week 2 Day 4 AND Dylan response

#10 Postby Jamessina » Fri Jan 13, 2012 8:37 pm

Hi Dylan~ I am a crossfitter on Long Island, between 5-6 times a week. I haven't been a part of the regular gym for 7 months. Absolutely love Crossfit! Technically, the Crossfit diet is based on the Zone Diet. It is heavy on blocks of food, however I haven't gotten into that part of the program. I do know some who do mostly paleo, though. While I am vegan, I think the Paleo diet fundamentals makes sense- based on hunter/gatherers, it is high in nutrients and low in processed ingredients. But I don't agree that protein needs to be center stage at every meal, in fact I think its acidic. None of our ancestors had THAT much access to animal ingredients at every meal, so I think its definitely been altered to be suitable for the SAD (Standard American Diet). And I don't think it's completely accurate.

AND

Workout for today
Row 800 m
stretches
50 hollow rocks
25 situps
15 pike pushups
10 pullups

Workout:
As many rounds as possible of the following in 20 straight minutes:
3 pullups
3 dips (used level 1 band)
4 handstand pushups
8 kettlebell swings (35 lbs)

Total: 17 rounds

*Have been using Vega for two days- ate a protein bar as a snack before lunch around 12PM and then had the recovery shake after the workout. Had a recovery drink after working out last night and never had a stronger workout than today. Pullups were perfected and dips were my best yet. Impressed with Vega Sport!!

Week 3, Day 1

#13 Postby Jamessina » Tue Jan 17, 2012 8:05 pm

Exhaustion has set in after a stressful day at work, and arrive home to complete the second half of my day. Training was very light, and was whatever I could fit in at home.
Spending the evening preparing quinoa, energy bars and wild rice for the next couple of days which will also be busy. Hoping to get to either a 9PM workout tonight or a 6AM tomorrow morning.

50 hollow rocks was all I could fit in today

2012 goal: Muscle-ups
Working on getting off the band for dips and perfecting my pushup. I will get those muscle ups before the summer!

Had little time to eat today, and only had fajita veggies, avocado and water/green tea during the day, and a salad of romaine, tomato and onions with falafel for dinner. Feeling less hydrated today and need tons of fruits tomorrow. Preparation is key, and I didn't have it today. The longer I write, the more inspired I am to get my butt to the 9PM tonight.

xo

UPDATE: I went to the 9pm class! TABATA with holds in between:
8 rounds, 20 seconds each, with 10 second hold in between

Squats
Chin above the bar
Pushups, chest to mat
Pullups
Bonus round: hollow rocks

Had vega Pre workout energizer before, and both recovery drink and shake afterwards. Was truly my stronger workout yet.

Week 3, day 2

#15 Postby Jamessina » Thu Jan 19, 2012 2:44 pm

With the inspiration of a 9pm workout the night before, I went to an 8pm class on Wednesday evening.

Warmup:
1000m row
Situps
Pushups with rotation
Leg swings
Pullups

Workout- and this one was nuts-
2 cumulative minutes of l-hold position on parallels
20 cleans (55lbs for me)
40 burpees
30 toes to bar
20 pullups

15 minutes to complete, otherwise burpees on the minute. I completed in 14:35

The recovery shakes have been incredible for me. No soreness the day after. Stronger than ever on my pullups, very exciting!
