This is the place to share what you did today to benifit your well being ! Lifting weights , cardio vascular work, meal prep, supplementation ETC. Not only are we training our bodys but our minds with the discipline it takes to succeed at our goals. If you post a personal goal, best lift, longest run etc it serves as great motivation to others and can allow you to look back and track progress and stay on other dogs when they start slackin !! This is a NO judgement (unless critique is asked) thread. Im a certified PT and x bodybuilder that left a deeply routed life in the fitness industry to persue a more stable family life and become a lazy union man grin now my kids growing up and im finding i need to give MY body the attention it has been neglected of and to lead by example. Its easy for us to get distracted and even though it seems like an hour a day a few times a week is easy to make ITS NOT ALWAYS SO. Aside from that..EVEN HARDER its the 23 hours outside of the gym/fitness routine whatever your venue may be that make the difference. Nutrition, rest, mental health all make the building blocks to a strong physical body. I feel in these times us dogs all need to be on point with ourselves more than ever. LONG LIVE THE BROTHERHOOD cool

Feel free to send me a message if any of you dogs are not comfortable in the open forum and would like any opinions recommendations tips etc. Nutrition, workout, diet, drugs are all common with the territory and these days theres even more smoke and mirrors than ever with all the BS fake influncers and diet fads social media has endorced. NO FOOFY PROGRAMS -NO BRO SCIENCE- NO FADS - just hardcore old school WORK. Consistancy is key smile

***just to be 100% clear one more time im not endorcing , selling, promoting or looking for "online clients"***

I love helping and used to volunteer with highschool kids and elderly when i could. As cheesy as it sounds blush.. Strange feeligs of happiness come over me from helping where i can, this is a truly enjoyable easy thing for me to chat about ! lets all benifit from one another! laugh

Today im going to train Delts. Higher volume lots of controlling squeezes at full contraction and constant tension on the head im hitting. (Delts aka shoukders can be easily broken into 3 heads to directly hit depending on movement and body position, front, side and rear.) For rear heads ill do 4 sets of bentover lateral raises aka flys. 1 warmup and 3 working sets around 20 reps each at about 90% intensity increasing weight as i go and possibly finish with a drop set.. Side heads ill do standing lateral raises and for front delts single arm alternating front raises. Just trying to get all my joints back in the swing. No heavy presses or super intense sets... yet wink

Today will be a kettlebell day for me. Usually it's a mellow work out of either 80 or 160 reps with 12 different excercises...but I'm feeling spry so will do 300 reps with 10 different excercises. It's with a 30lb kettlebell. I started playing with kettlebells after watching Keith Webber on Joe Rogan's show. I feel like it hits lots of small muscle groups for core strength, stability and movement.

This morning I did some cardio on my Rogue Echo bike (Pandemic Purchase)

Tonight I will do KB swings 5 x 5 and some Turkish Get ups

I also always do some Push Up, Pull up and Sit Ups throughout the day to "Grease the Groove"

Abolsutley agree with the kettlebells, much for "functional" way of lifting than strict movements i normally do for aesthetics with dumbells and bars. Im gona go lay some subfloor today wich should give me a good calorie burning day of work, then try to hit chest or back tonight with free weights.

Maybe we should run some type of progress/commitment reward. Set a realistic goal. Acheive it and get a patch or sticker etc along those lines. Everytime i built an oldshool gym at one of my places everyone would call it "the yard" maybe we could put the dog head logo with a bending barbell over it or somthing in relation if dans cool with that as a forum thing.. just spitballing ideas.. we need to bribe those old dogs with a little somthing to get em in here with us too .. ill cover the costs of materials and shipping smile

Today is what I call my push-pull day- pushups, pull ups, squat-press, and an ab exercise. Simple routine but I like it a lot and I almost always feel great after.

The simpler the better.

Today I'm gonna stand on a rubber ball and do tricep kickbacks....J/K

Today (and on most "off" days) I do intervals on the Rogue Echo and some heavy bag work.
I'll also practice some basic BJJ moves; Rolls, Shrimping, Bridging and Stand to Base.
Stand to Base is important. Basically if you get thrown to the grown it shows you how to get up safely and keep fighting.

Treadmill and cabinet ups. Donít laugh. Stand two to three feet away from kitchen cabinets (or where ever). Place your hands on the edge of the cabinet. Lean forward touching your chest to the cabinet, then extend your arms. Kinda like doing a semi-regular push-up. And yeah, if you do it right, you WILL start to feel it. Hey, us old folk without access to equipment gotta improvise.
