    Did you work out today?

    We used to have one of these threads going pretty much constantly, and I think it's time for a reset here in Health and Fitness. There has been a lot of theoretical discussion, which is always good, a lot of critiques of different fitness programs and nutritional theories, all very good stuff.

    What I haven't seen is very many people talking about what they are actually doing. So enough about what you think someone else should be doing, or what you used to do, I'm simply asking....





    Did you work out today?

    It's rather quite simple; You either do it or you don't!

    Yesterday was my off day. Today will be deadlifts, weighted chin ups, rows, and a few barbell curls. It will probably my last workout for a week or so since I'm leaving for deer camp for a few days.

    I did a squat session (5/3/1), some hip and shoulder mobility stuff and about 30 mins on the jumprope. I took yesterday off and sunday was a 10k in Macao. Fun stuff.

    heading out to hunt until dark today, then boxing tonight. it's my first workout in 2 weeks, and i'm psyched. i didn't work out at all while my power was out, because i never knew where/when i'd be able to shower.

    One thing I would advise people to stay away from in a long term health perspective is things like "Ab-Ripper-X" or similar crunches/situp types of "core workouts". Your rectus abdominus isn't made to be strong in a "crunch" type movement - your core as a whole is meant to be use as a force transfer between your lower and upper body, as well as being used to protect your spine, specifically your lumbar spine. Legitimate research has shown repetitive flexion type movements (think crunches, Russian twists, weighted situps) to be the quickest route to a lumbar disc herniation. Again, there is a certain range of motion to your lower back, but we're predominantely meant to hinge at our hips (think proper deadlift - no lower back involved if you're doing it well), and flexion should be kept to a minimum. Instead, try things like planks, body saws, ball roll outs, side planks, anti-rotation press ("pukers"), landmines (executed properly), and various explosive or "pulsing" movements.

    Strikes me as funny that my mountain bikes wheels are only a half inch shorter than my 29.5" draw length...

    One set of chinups before leaving this morning. A set or two when I get home tonight. That'll be it for the day. It's better than nothing.
