Whooo Hooo!!!! :D

got the green light (sort of)

okay to do weights (starting with lower weights with no overhead movements) I'll take it!!!!

Also received an ankle strengthening program.
My back is still a little stiff but not painful.
I was also advised to look at alternatives to deadlifts, bentover rows and squats due to my back and ankle history.

Now I can think all day about what to do tonight!!!! :D

Dug out the dumbells last night and dis a couple sets of bicep curls and tricep kickbacks. Also 2x15 incline pushups and 2x15 heel raises
Felt good to be able to do something. I'm being careful not to overdo things.

This morning I did 30 minutes on the Nordic Track
100 crunches
50 incline pushups

Well, I'm leaving today for a week of vacation! :D
No computer
no weights :shock:

I'm actually looking forward to it. I'm going to treat it like a 1 week "bootcamp" with lots of bodyweight exercises.
I'll have my bike too

see you in a week!!!

back from vacation!!!!

did a ton of hiking and mountain biking last week
A little disappointed with the slow progress with the back.
I've been stretching like a madman to loosen it up.
Weights are still a bit tough for me but pushups and chins seem okay.

Lost 3 lbs last week (not sure if it was a good or bad 3lbs though) :wink:

OMG it was like playing soccer in a sauna tonight! probably sweated out 5 lbs

The worst of it was the organizer's little brother (23 years old) showed up and he runs like a gazelle.

great workout but at the same time it reminded me once more that I can't do the things I used to. It's still fun though!! :D

tried some light weights with dumbells this morning.
curls 3x12
shoulderpress 3x12
bench 3x12
tricep kickback 2x8
incline pushups 3x15

I'll have to be very patient and careful with the weights as my back was a bit irritated

yesterday I went for a nice long walk at lunch
in the evening I tried something new....courtesy of bloodgroove in another thread
combat conditioning by Matt Furey
no weight exercises
hindu squats
hindu pushups
back bridge

the squats weren't too bad but I started to feel pretty sore at 50
pushups were a bit tougher for me I did 3x15 instead of going to failure because my back was a bit tender.
the backbridge was by far the toughest for me. It made me realiz how tight my back really is. I could barely get into the bridge position.

I'm going to give it another shot today.

Yesterday was one of those family fitness days.
went for a bike ride, played soccer with the kids, and went for a nice long walk.

Today will be upperbody (don't want to try any squats since I play soccer tomorrow)
chins
shrugs
pushups
shoulderpress
neck arches
curls
bench

my back is still stiff but I feel like I'm making sloooow progress.
heavy weights are a definite no-no right now but as long as I can stay active I'm happy ! :D

soccer last night was pretty good. Always a good workout!
the only downer was that some Einstein picked the teams and it ended up being a team of +35 year olds vs. a bunch of 20 yearolds.
tie game at halftime but the 2nd half was a slaughter!

today I did a set of 50 hindu squats
3x15 incline pushups
3x5 pullups
and 40 minutes of soccer. (what can I say? World Cup is almost here!!!)

yesterday was a rest day. My quads have been a bit sore lately (makes sense given the pounding I've been giving the lately)

This morning I pulled out the dumbells
3x15 bench
3x12 shoulder press
3x12 curls
3x15 incline pushups
3x8 dips

hoping to get out tonight for some soccer or basketball.
since I started soccer I've lost 8 lbs!!!
And it's a good 8lbs ..... I'm wearing a pair of pants today that I haven't been able to wear for about a year. :D

Been a while :oops:

but I've been pretty active. Tons of soccer just played tonight and my wind is FINALLY back!!! It's much more fun when you're not bent over sucking wind :wink:

I've lost 10 lbs over the last couple weeks. I don't really mind losing the weight since it makes me quicker.

I'm still doing weights but with lower amounts. Still don't trust my back.

later.....
