Tri training 4/18/2010

Run day. 3 miles outside on “heart break hill.” This hill is on a greenbelt near my house. It borders several horse properties, and the horses love to watch the people go by. I think sometimes they are puzzled by how slow I am. 

The weather was great, I felt great, and I wish every frickin’ day were sunday.

Tri training 4/17/2010 full body strength

Kettlebell workout, including the following:

  • Floor Press x 10 – 12 reps
  • Heavy one-arm rows x 8 reps
  • Alternating dumbells presses x 10 reps
  • Alternating db curls
  • One-arm kb snatch
  • Double kb cleans
  • Heavy swings (88lb Kettlebell)
  • Pullups

The above in giant set fashion (one exercise after another with minimal rest), 3 times through. I went heavier today than I did earlier in the week since it’s Saturday.

Followed by p90x+ core training

Tri training 4/16/2010 Bike day!

It’s Friday, it’s sunny, and  I left the office at 2:00! So I’m riding a bike today. It’s still early in the season, so I’ll just take my 29er out on the bike paths for about 90 minutes.

Training 4/15/2010- Lower body training

Leg Stregth.

I’m breaking out Steve Cotter’s Extreme Workout, Lower body today. This brutal workout, if done with heavy enough weight, is AWESOME. It cranks up the heart rate, makes you think your legs will never make it  and hits EVERYTHING in a functional way. It looks a little like this:

  • Double Kettlebell Squats x 8
  • Semi-stiff-legged deadlifts x 10 (dumbbells)
  • One leg KB stiff leg deadlifts x 5l/5r
  • Step-ups x 8l/8r onto a high stepladder
  • Weighted back lunges (holding 2 heavy dumbells)
  • Calf-raise squats (fast)
  • Heavy swings (88lb KB)

Circuit style, 3 times through, barefoot. Ouch

Triathon training 4/14/2010

Swim day. Except I’m not swimming yet. I’m feeling like I learned enough last season that I can post decent swim times without spending so much time in the damned indoor pool at Lifetime Fitness. It’s cold and cloudy and not much fun. Perhaps this strategy will be my downfall.

So I’ll be doing Steve Maxwell’s 300 Kettlebell Challenge workout. It’s a great, lung busting 26 minute circuit workout. I’ve got my 36lb kettlebell ready to roll.

Triathlon training 4/13/2010

Run day.

3 miles, nice and slow. Barefoot running on the treadmill. Time 29.56. Ran in the morning. Felt slow. Now, off to see 24 patients.

Next Month’s Newsletter-Barefoot Running

Yes, the March issue of the Dr. Glenn Report will focus on my month-long experiment with barefoot running. No, it’s not because I read the book Born To Run. I’ve been talking about barefoot bodyweight training for a long time.
