Thanks great, you might also consider doing 1 legged squats.

Have you tried tabata squats yet? If you like the burn you will love them.

Yeah, I'm practicing 1-legged squats, but I'm still too weak, or too heavy depending on how you see it. Practicing difficult moves such as the 1-leg squat, 1-arm push up and similar works well as the last part of the warm-up for D2!

Going back to regular Taekwon-do tonight. I need to work the simplefit schedule into my class schedule in some way.

Edit: Ok, doing D1 workouts the evening before tkd practice isn't a good idea! I was somewhat sore, and felt extremely heavy throughout. Kicks and punches were slow and sluggish, and I felt like crap. Did well on the conditioning finisher though! Push ups and planks aren't quite as challenging as they used to be 8)

I'm going to have to figure out a way to schedule at least the D1's away from any classes. D3 is pretty straight-forward, so that can be fit in. D2 could be either way, easy if I want it to be, but as hard as I want it to. There's a bit of flexibility in the tkd classes as well, but I'm committed to tuesdays as I'm teaching the kids class and assisting the adults.

Thinking cap is on.

W5L1D2 - 7ish minutes

Warmup: 4k bike ride

2x semi-kipping semi-decent not-quite-dead-hang pull ups
6x knuckle elbow-in strict push ups
10x regular squats.

Finisher: 4k bike sprint ahead of a nasty rainfall.

Considered the tabata squat challenge, but the oncoming rain and a suspicious knee kept me back.[/b]

i agree... i like the encouragement...

i sometimes feel weird commenting to other's logs... but you seem to just jump right in with the praise.

it definitely adds to the friendly atmosphere.

Good work taifun!

Have you decided on an approach in our attack on fizzle?
He got away this time...

But he'd better not look back! :twisted:

He'll just have to keep watching his back!

Norway, Australia, U.S. Pacific Coast, and I'm in Central Illinois.....I need to get out and see the real world! :)

I wish I could say I was from an interesting part of the world, oh well, it works for me and my family.

But Norway has to be pretty darn cool (cool, as in neat, interesting, etc. and cool as in lower temperatures, low humidity, etc.) I'll stop now. :)

Urup No problem, Commenting is a vital part of the game. Keep posting your progress, It's an extra bit of pressure on yourself to keep going.

Clay: Hmm, can't compare to Central Illinois, as the nearest I've been is five hours at O'Hare airport waiting for the next flight to Seattle.

I'm pretty sure that most everywhere might seem more interesting than home, no matter where you grow up! The key thing though, as Clay says, is what works out best for my family in the long run.

Oh, and cool is the word, 4C this morning!

So, nothing logged since sunday, lazy ass!

Ok, this week has been working h*ll, so not all that much working out. Some testing on the rower, nothing timed or structured. I've also been doing some 5-rep sets of various push-ups whenever the situation have allowed it.

Tuesday was martial arts for 2.5 hrs, fairly demanding, but just medium intensity.

Last night I was planning on putting in a D3, but I was feeling a bit under the weather and hit the sack early. Not feeling too good this morning either, but a monstrous workload has forced me out of bed and into action. We'll see how it goes.
