MR Forum Fit Club

To encourage fitness goals, share experiences, educate and uplift each other.

If you haven't started yet, you are welcome at anytime.

Just dive right in!








I was able to get in 3 upper body workouts the last two weeks. I also got in 3 nights of volleyball. I am determined to have less of a gut but it will take a lot of work.

Who would think you need to put some protection in front of the window?

I believe that they believed that the slats in the wooden box was sufficient and no one in a fatigued state of lifting during CrossFit would let go of the weights and have it roll-bounce. Perhaps it is a conspiracy to keep the glass industry in business.

Agreed.

I imagine they'll rethink that.

Taller slats and maybe a dense rubber mat to absorb the bounce.

Or Lexan windows.

I was working. Not able to get a workout in. But I did fix my HotShot RC car! Man it really goes fast. And I can watch my kids run after it. Which makes me tired. Does that count?

Or a leash.

Or square plates.

3.6 Mi/day according to the new Health App. After a change somewhere around December, it seems to be counting steps consistently but nowadays the same number of steps is delivering lower miles, by about 15-20%. Considering I'm doing the same walk (to/from work) I doubt my distance has suddenly reduced. Oh well, technology.

Oh boy.

I bought a 300 lb weight set from Dick's Black friday sale last year, (just a 45 lb bar and 255 lbs plates) and have that setup downstairs. I'll do a set of deadlifts every time I walk by. I was going pretty well @ 155lbs, but then I did too much and had to rest my back for a while, starting over at lower weight.

My weekly racquetball is good cardio. Also, going daily on the pushups.

My 6+ registers the most mileage in the cargo pocket near the knee, less in a regular pocket, and even less in a waist pack (edit> for the same walk). I wear the cargo pocket shorts most for the mileage boost. Health app annoyed me when I had to sidestep the stairs while recovering from the broken femur, it recorded NO flights of stairs.

Perhaps the health app would do better with a newer phone/app version…

One of the reasons I choose not to do CrossFit is the mixing of technical lifting combined with aerobic exercise. What ends up happening to some people is they are fatigued by the running, jumping, rowing etc, and then try to lifts that require specific techniques in order to maximize safety. I do my aerobic work separately from my lifting work. I feel that it makes more sense for me. I know a few people who jumped into CrossFit and now have stopped due to injuries from trying to lift heavy weights while tired. If CrossFit people want to pay the gym fees to work out like that, so be it, their money and body.

2.3 miles of walking/day according to the Health app, most all at elevation. Weight steady at down 10 pounds.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
