Coming back to training from illness is never easy. Although I was quite eager, especially since I have a new training toy.
A handy little device that allows me to do chin-ups, sit-ups, push-ups, and limited range dips. I also have modified it. With the addition of cables and stretch bands I can now also perform pull-downs, tricep extensions, rows, and rope pull-ups.
Unfortunately, since I am 90 miles from my gym, I am having to improvise a workout routine. A basic multi-joint routine that starts with squats, chin-ups, and push-ups and ends with one-legged deadlifts and a deadlift/curl/press combo- with plenty of fun stuff in between.
There is some bad news though. The workout got me to the point of ALMOST puking. You know that point. I was hunched over the toilet coughing that horrible pre-puke cough. Luckily, a combination of fervent prayer and rubbing the pressure point between my thumb and pointer-finger allowed me to avert that messy fate. I will have to tone it back a bit for the next few workouts until my body gets back into the swing of things.
Nothing else to report today. Tomorrow I will perform a strength/agility training routine with Turkish get-ups, bear crawls, agility ladder drills, and whatever other devious things I can dream up.
See you all tomorrow.
