50 minute lsd run today.

Felt good running up hills. Breathing is slowing down and heart rate is staying low. My recovery time is faster now. Last week it was tough to keep to my workout schedule, but I’m getting back on track. Friday’s ruck run was intense, but I was able to stay at the front of the pack. Need to get back to S&S!!
25 jumping jacks
10 squats
10 arm circles forward and backward
10 push-ups

Run up a hill then:

Start at light pole and do the exercise. Then move to the next light pole and complete that exercise. Start over again from the beginning but add the third light pole. Continue in this fashion always starting over from the beginning and increasing exercises.

Exercise 1: 5 burpees
Exercise 2: 10 squat jumps
Exercise 3: 15 thrusters
Exercise 4: 20 push-ups
Exercise 5: 5 burpees

More running, run up a big hill and grab a rock
then do curls and presses with the rock. So 2 curls and then 2 presses etc.


Run back to the start (1/2 a mile)

4 lunges and 4 burpees crossing a 50m parking lot. Run back 50m

4 lunges and 2 burpees same drill.

Power-t flutter kicks 10
Mason twists 20
Peter Parkers 2 minutes (hold plank position, bring left or right leg up like a mountain climber but hold it up until leader says change - GREAT ab exercise)

Fell off the horse this week. Have a lot of pain in my left shoulder blade that shoots up into my neck. It’s pretty painful. I can turn left but when I try to turn my head to the right it starts up again. No workout so far until this pain goes away. I will try to stretch and foam roll to see if that helps.
Foam rolled a lot over the back area and did some specific ball rolling as well. Tried some one handed swings with the 16kg which felt like it loosened my back muscles up a bit. Tried with the 24kg and felt like that helped somehow too. Still not 100%. It feels like a pinched nerve or muscle. Feeling much better tonight. Planning on rucking and then doing a workout tomorrow morning.
Worked out today and got broke-off. Blame it on a bunch of things but I don't think I was prepared for the humidity, heat, and dehydration going into this.

Run 1/2 mile do 25 pushups and 25 squats with 30lb ruck x 6

99 problems...

Do 99 reps of that exercise then run 1/4 mile and do the next exercise 99 times

1) Star Jacks
2) Pushups
3) Squats
4) Mountain Climbers (1 each leg 1/1, 2/2, 3/3...)
5) Crunches

Finish with core exercises: 10 flutter kicks, 5-10 reps of boat/canoe/sailboat, and 10 hello dollies

Smoked. BUT - no more pain in my back!
Did not workout, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday due to various reasons/excuses/etc.

Rucked today:

1 mile loop stopping 4 times to do 50 squats. And lunge once for 25m

Sprinted 100m with ruck
20 burpees (with ruck)
20 push-ups
20 Lion Kings
Bear crawl 50m uphill
Fireman carry with their ruck and mine up a hill for 25m
Walk backwards up the rest of the hill
20 burpees
20 push-ups

Ruck 4 miles at constant pace (40 minutes)

Definitely feeling weak. Lifted a guy weighing 200lbs plus his 40lb ruck and my 30lb ruck. Even though I could do it - I didn’t FEEL strong. It’s time to get serious with getting stronger. Starting point for me is S&S. It won’t be “pure” S&S, but I’m going to experiment with S&S slowly. Also, since I’m not doing a GoRuck I can back off on ruck runs a bit. The tough part here is I do these things with a group of men and I primarily ruck to be around them more. Not rucking/working out equals not seeing these guys due to our crazy schedules.
First day of S&S complete!

3x5 goblet squats 16kg (no butt wink)
3x5 Halos 16kg (one way)

5x10 TH Swings 24kg (breathed through the nose until rested between sets)

Rest 1 minute

5/5 TGU 16kg (slow, focus on form)

Feeling good! I still have gas left in the tank. I focused on trying to connect my lats more during the swings, bracing, and dropping down a little lower in my hinge. I also tried to play chicken with the bell with my timing. I found my swings starting to “snap” more.

Focused on driving my heel more and keeping my arms in close for the get up. Also, focused on staring at the bell. Took these slow. Gave myself a good pace where I could just keep knocking these out without getting out of breath. Felt good.

My goal is to do S&S as often as possible with 4x a week being the minimum. I may move up to everyday just to experiment with how that feels. I’m tired of being and feeling weak.

Did not do S&S last night because I have found that I am not very good at keeping my word. That was tough to swallow today, but it was a great wake up call for me. So, I did S&S tonight, and I will be rucking tomorrow along with the workout.

Rest 1 minute

24, 16,24, 16, 24 Getups

Missed my AM workout so did it after putting my daughter to bed. Threw in the 24kg for Getups to see how it felt. I felt strong but not stable. After the 24 the 16 felt solid. I was really able to dial in my technique.

Doing a brutal ruck tomorrow so it will be interesting to see how I feel after my S&S session tonight.
Got the dog crap beat out of me today:

Ruck 1/2 mile. 20 push-ups, 20 squats. Ruck back.

11’s: Coffin sit-ups and plank jacks at the bottom of the hill. Run/walk backwards up the hill. Burpees and mr. incredible at the top. Run around the parking lot 200m.

Start with 10 reps at the bottom and 1 at the top. Go down by 1 at the bottom and up by 1 at the top until you have 5 reps at the bottom and 6 at the top.


15 Lion Kings - 2 lunge/1 squat across 25m - 15 wide push-ups - low crawl 25m back. Repeat 3, 4, or 5 times (can’t remember, I just know it sucked)


25 4-count flutter kicks
30 mason twists

ATMs - 15 shoulder taps, 10 tempo push-ups, 10 regular push-ups (no ruck - all other exercises included the ruck).

Despite feeling sore in my knees from the low crawl I’m feeling good. Last night’s S&S session left me with gas in my tank and maybe even prepared me for this morning. I was in front during the 11s, and in the top 3 on the crawls. Not bad considering 1 of those three was baby crawling!!
Here’s an interesting fact: After getting completely destroyed yesterday I would normally take it easy on the weekend and be sore the next day. I woke up sore and beat up but decided to try a light S&S session anyway....And I felt like the get ups were too easy!!! I recovered my breathing faster during my swings!!! I felt like throwing the 24kg in during the getups!!! What The Hell?

3x5 Hip Bridges
3x5 Halos 16kg
