3-1-12 Back/Biceps
DB Deadlifts 196# x5x5x5x5x5 ->X
Weighted Pullups +25# x5x5x4x4x4 ->27.5#
One Arm DB Rows 103# x5x5x5x5x4 ->105.5#
Weighted Chinups +15# x8x7x5 ->X
DB Curls 2x 38# x8x7x7 -> 2x 40.5#

Another good day.

Which brings me to my next point, at some point within the next year or two I will be hitting the road again. Since mom is moving to San Diego she encouraged me to travel again and use her house/apartment as a hub to rest.

This got me to thinking what I could take on the road with me. The vest I have, my suspension straps, the 170lbs-205lbs in weights and two DB handles totaling 26lbs. Maybe a short 3-4 foot bar if I can find somewhere for it, plus mats.

Anyway, ate at Ranchos Cocina tonight. I ate a ton, 1 plate of ranchos potatoes, 1 plate of banana pancakes with butter and maple syrup, plate of tofu scramble with cheese, a piece of chocolate cake, the chips the serve prior, and a few cups of coffee. It was divine. If any of you are ever in San Diego, hit me up and we will dine like royalty. This place rules, best Vegan/Vegetarian joint, EVER.

Sprinted today on a 3/4 mile hill about 17min.

Needless to say I was doing Tabatha protocol, 15sec sprint all out, 60 sec rest, so I nearly hurled on my 10th and final sprint.

Also I think my pinky toe nail is falling off, and seeing as how I am not Mr. Potato Head I don't think it's supposed to be detachable.

I just had coffee and pastries with divamom. What a lovely treat, she is such a nice person. I didn't think to take a photo, we'll be hanging out soon and I'll take a picture.

I am taking a week off weightlifting but I will continue to sprint and run.

I'm taking this entire week off resistance training.

On Tuesday I did a combo sprint/distance run. First 2.5min I ran 6.5mph, then I did 6.5mph for 1 min, 10mph sprints for 30 sec all the way till 12 min mark, then a solid 6.5mph jog for another 18 min.

Today I did a distance run, 4.6 miles at 6.5mph.

I will do weighted hill sprints on Saturday, then return to the iron.

I have probably located a new van, back home in CT. Psyched. It's a 1999 Volkswagen Eurovan T4 camper conversion with pop top, 4L diesel AWD with 90k miles.

Soooo excited. It's only 2k.

Good for you, Yetimeister. Periodic leaves of absence have always done wonders for my strength and morale. Today, I built large garden trellises from reclaimed wood instead of going to the gym. I'm sore in whole new places. Viva la difference!

Good luck on your wheels. May I suggest Yetimobile as a nickname? Post pics.

yes, yay on the new wheels! I have one more week off from resistance as well. I will think of you tomorrow as I cruise aisle after aisle in search of vegan chocolates, vegan cookies and vegan crap food! I agree, Yetimobile!

Back to lifting today. I feel INCREDIBLY strong. My body is certainly renewed and recharged. I cannot stress how good I feel and how I blasted today's workout. My focus is renewed and I feel supercharged.

3-11-12 Day A1 Legs/Chest/Biceps
Vest Split Squats/Jump Squats/Good Mornings +50lbs x10x10x10x10 ->60lbs (First time my legs have burned like fire in AGES)
Vest Weighted Pushups +75lbs x5x5x5x5x4 ->77.5lbs
DB Flys 2x48lbs x8x8x8x8 ->X Reps of 10lbs until more iron is bought
Vest Chinups +27.5lbs x5x5x5x5x4 ->30lbs
DB Curls 2x40.5lbs x8x8x8x8 Extra then to failure on a 5th set -> 43lbs

The vest is incredible. It works extremely well and changes the dynamics of bodyweight+ because the iron is balanced!

5 min jog, 20 min of sprinting, 5 ming jog, 10 minutes of light ab work.

*knackered*

I did my abs on the monkey bars and this kid came up and grabbed my leg for balance. So I smiled at him and his mother gave me the dirtiest look. She made me feel like the filthiest scumbag when I was just trying to be friendly. ;_:

yek on her. and why would you feel like a scumbag? --you don't even look like a smegmy predator---maybe its the moustacheless beard?!...and trust me, I know what its like to feel like a scumbag! hey...do you have a CA Drivers license or ID card? You can get a free pass to 24..there is a really nice one in College Grove, a Magic Johnson one...before you take the YetiVan on a trip, we need to go to the gym! I go back to two cardio workouts/day starting tomorrow, in Operation "fatbegone" (and so I can go to Ranchos and eat!) monkey bars sound fun.

How do you get a free pass to 24 hour fitness? Is it like a day pass or something?

you need to have a CA id and credit card, --say you want to try it out before you buy a membership- they usually will give you a 10 day or two week pass. go online to 24hourfitness.com and look it up. :)

My new routine is focusing on doing the best I can with what I have. I have been living in my van full time while supporting my disabled mother. We are trying to get her on her feet and I hope within' the next few months I can move back into moving some iron. But I am very much enjoying my highly endurance and speed based training. I have been doing resistance training 2x a week for 30-45min running 3x a week for 45-90min, sprinting 2x a week for 30-45 min, and loading down with 50lbs or so 2x a week for weighted hikes, 1-2hrs.

My body is in remarkable shape. My resting heart rate is ridiculous low. I feel fantastic. I am convinced the human body is built for power, speed, and endurance, not just one or the other.

Here is my schedule:

Sun: Chest/Biceps/Light Legs + 1 Weighted Walk +50lbs
Mon: Run 1 Hr Min
Tues: Sprint 45 Min
Wed: Run 1.5 hrs
Thurs: Back/Triceps/Lower Back +1-2hr Weighted Walk +50lbs
Fri: Sprint 45 Min
Sat: Run 1 Hr

My diet is 75% Raw, 25% cooked Vegan. I eat 1 cooked meal a day consisting of a cup or two of beans or legumes, maybe some cooked veggies. The rest of my food comes from nut salads, fruit salads, chop salads, seeds, etc. Stuff my mom makes me. I am eating raw local honey because my immune system was suffering greatly. My white blood cell count has been high and not dropped in weeks. I am in the process of totally eliminate grains. Down to rice, buckwheat, and oats.

I am practicing hard not over eating, 1 dinner plate of food for my main meal, then a nut salad, fruit salad, and some fruit snicky snack.

Tomorrow I meet Amy AKA Divamom for Ranchos. YAAAY.
