Frenetic Fitness

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

Five in a Row

Monday: 25-20-15-10 reps

  • burpee to deadlift 65lb
  • pullups (band assisted and still HARD)
  • overhead lunges holding 25lb plate
  • sit ups
  • pushups
  • kettle bell swings 30lb

followed up with group CORE work

Tuesday: 3 Rounds of 30 seconds of work/25 seconds to move to next station

  • plate push x 35lb plate
  • squat jumps
  • hanging knee tucks
  • vertimax (think squat jumps with elastic bands from waist attached to floor)
  • kneeling medicine ball toss
  • treadmill sprint
  • plank
  • wall sit holding medicine ball
  • wall balls
  • inverted row

Wenesday: was a lifting day at the gym so I opted for Bob Harper’s 1 hour ultimate cardio challenge. With ass burners.

Thursday: 5 Rounds

  • hang clean x 15 x 45lb
  • sit ups x 25
  • burpee with push up to broad jump x 30 yards
  • line drill (suicides)
  • high wall ball x 25 x 10lb ball

followed by group CORE work

Friday: after general warm up,  an active warm up of 10 minutes of plyometric exercises and a strength move: split squats with an elevated back leg 3 x 8 ea leg with 12lb dumbbells

Then 4 Rounds:

  • sumo dead lift high pull x 12,  3 x 45lb 1 x 65lb
  • box jumps x 25 18″ box
  • plate push x 20 yds x 35lb plate
  • squat jumps x 25
  • knee tucks x 20

So the workout schedule for the week was fairly good, no endurance work but some decent strength and cardio work. But last weeks decision to eat whatever I want to continued into this week. I’ve had burgers, steaks, potatoes, bread, pastries,desserts and alcohol. And I realize that it’s time to stop. I’m going to enjoy my weekend as we have grand plans for our Sunday afternoon, which I’ll follow up on because there will be great photos to share. But by Sunday evening it will be time to begin savoring the occasional treat and not planning and eating each meal as if I don’t know when I’ll get another. So I can view the past few weeks of nutritional mayhem as a temporary set back or indulgence but not a failure. I was able to stay consistent with my workouts and that’s better than letting it all go to pot.
