Frenetic Fitness

fre·net·ic /frəˈnetɪk/ done very fast and with a lot of energy, often by someone who is in a hurry.

Ready ta GO!

I won’t be getting up at dawn to baste a turkey tomorrow. I didn’t start making pies yesterday. Nope. We will be doing something we like to call “avoiding the holiday”.  Our family of four plus one 55lb puppy will be strapping on backpacks and heading to the wilderness for Thanksgiving weekend. We’ll be driving up to the Buffalo National River area and the Ponca Wilderness.  This isn’t the first time we’ve done this.  A few years ago we took the youngest on her first overnight backpacking trip during Thanksgiving break, 3 days and 2 nights on the Ouachita Trail.  Woohoo for instant/dehydrated foods and summer sausage!

So to make sure I  got my workouts in before we left I hit the gym this week. Now if I could have managed to fit the endurance workout in over the weekend instead of yard work, etc. That would have been nice.

Monday: 3 rounds of as many reps as possible in 1 minute, with 1 minute rest between

  • sumo deadlift high pull
  • pull ups
  • box jumps
  • wall balls
  • pushups

plus a core workout at the end


  • leg press 4 x 8
  • DB flat bench press 3 x 8
  • lat pulldowns 3 x 10
  • good morning 3 x 10
  • dips 3 x 12
  • superset: overhead extension and barbell curls 2 x 10
  • calf raise 3 x 15

ending with another core workout

Wednesday: 6 rounds for time

  • kneeling medicine ball toss x 10
  • mountain climbers 50 (ea leg)
  • 3 in 1’s x 5
  • plate push 10yds
  • sit ups x 20
