Training Plans

not on the rug

Recommended Posts

Alright fellas...what is everyone doing to stay fit?


I'm currently sidelined with some sort of inner ear infection that has been giving me vertigo and dizziness for over a month. When I'm not dealing witb BS like this, I was running a sort of bastardized Texas Method and Heavy/Light/Medium routine. 3 days a week of lifts. I try to do yoga 2x a week during the winter months and then I just hunt. When it's warm out, I'm always out on the mountain bike or in the kayak on my non-lifting days. I also like to box. Nothing special really nowadays, just hitting pads with friends, working the heavy bag and doing some drills.


So...what are you guys and girls in to?

This year I am determined to get back in shape. I am making great progress so far. Instead of drinking a case of beer a day, I cut back to only 2 six packs. Lol I enjoy weight training 4 times a week and try to do cardio 5 days a week. Elliptical so not to pound my legs anymore. Also hit a heavy bag occasionally.

I do nothing.  I really need to do something.


In the past I had a couple of gym memberships that essentially paid the salaries of the staff, and I never saw the inside of the gym.


I have an exercise bike in the basement that I was riding for a couple of weeks.  I have a cardio plan, HRM connected to my smart phone, the bike, and zero motivation.


But I do realize that if I don't do something to get into shape, I will be the poster child for heart attacks.

Sapere aude.


When you cannot measure, your knowledge is meager and unsatisfactory.

The important thing is to do something that you will stick with, the greatest workout in the world is useless if you don't stick with it.  My wife and I walk an hour each day.  We heat with wood and I split it  by hand, I do this for an hour roughly 3 times a week.  On Mondays and Thursdays I do 3 sets of Spiderman pushups and on Tuesdays and Fridays I do several exercises with a pair of dumbbells.  


I'm 5'11", in my 30s I crept up to 200 lbs. but since I've been doing this I've kept my weight between 180-185.

Crossfit Mon, wed, Friday. Cardio Tuesday and Thursday. Don't need much time but you need to be consistent. Oh and here is an easy trick for diet. Eat anything you want as long as it isn't candy and soda. Only other restriction is you can only eat as many grams of carbs as your body weight. So I weigh 205 that means I can only eat 205 grams of carbs a day. With that one rule and the no soda and candy you will loose weight. Good luck

I'm a big beleiver that conditioning pays off for me when it comes to hunting. Off-season I work out six days a week, usually split between weight training and cardio routines. As I get closer to the couple 5k's I run, I run two days a week instead of my normal cardio. During hunting season, I cut way back, work out maybe only two days a week. Time is really the limiting factor but when I'm in the field I'm still getting some exercise. With the season winding down, I'm actually starting back up with my 6 day/week routine on Monday.
