Re: Unfluffing

Last throwing practice before comp on Saturday. Looking relatively good. Hitting over 55 on lwfd consistently, stones are hit or miss, hwfd sometimes good, if I remember speed I can get over 60 on hammer which clearly needs work.

Re: Unfluffing

Ran three miles on Wednesday, spent all day yesterday running errands. Going to try and combine two workouts this afternoon and then throw with my daughter again tonight. Weight is all over the place, need to cut the booze and get back on my food plan. Too much fat, not enough vegetables.

Re: Unfluffing

Spent a week at the beach with all the kids, a neurotic trophy wife (not me) and the rest of my family. Got some training in, got some running in, got some really bad surfing in, but I didn't break my neck so win-win. Back to it this week at the gym and throwing. My next games is a week from Saturday.

2.7 mile run yesterday with the cross country team. Packing today for the beach. Been a rough few days. Hoping everything calms down a bit.

Re: Unfluffing

Wednesday, 3 mile run with cross country team, hour riding lesson in the crazy horse but surprisingly, she remembered what we did Saturday and seemed to be trying her best. (I'm a sucker for effort.) Today, stone, hammer, wob, and sheaf. I switched to a shuffle on open stone and its giving me anothe...

Re: Unfluffing

Sunday, did shoulders and finished with kb swings on the minute for 12 minutes. Monday, did some sheaf and wob.

Some weight for distance with the 14 and 21. Hit 55 and 36 pretty consistently, still need to work on the release.

Re: Unfluffing

2.5 mile run.

And then an hour riding lesson on the crazy horse who has an anxiety attack if you give her too much (any) leg pressure. She did not buck me off, we learned to leg yield, I got a Charlie horse in my right glute.

Re: Occlusion bands

I've just been using them without regard to reps, etc. I am doing a hybrid strength/bodybuilding training program right now so assistance work is higher reps, basic strength and power is lower reps (3-6). I've also used them when throwing and noticed a decrease in shoulder soreness and I even used t...

Occlusion bands

So I do part time work as a fitness writer and consultant. I am currently evaluating some commercially available occlusion bands for both the upper thigh (basically fits where your thigh connects to your hip, not a flattering look, but whatever) and the upper arm (in the space between delt and bicep...

Re: Unfluffing

Saturday did some arms and abs. Sunday I ran for 45 minutes. Today I did delts and then did 8 minutes of heavy kettlebell swings, 10 on the minute. Started off easy, by round 8 (my goal was 12), my lungs were burning and I had a headache, but good HIIT overall.

Re: Of Pistols and BW Squats

I think that we all need to do some heavy leg work, which can be of limited range of motion, whether it be deadlifts, squats, or leg presses. Personally, as a long-femured person, leg presses damage my knees. I also think we all need to do some single leg work. Lunges, split squats, one-legged deadl...

Re: Unfluffing

Throwing practice today. Worked on lifting my chest and using legs on release of lightweight. Got it up to 57 feet. Sheaf was okay, but my back is still sore from Friday. Wob with 21 was good, hit 15 feet.

Re: Unfluffing

Spent the week in the mountains, competed on Friday. Not a stellar day on the field for me, but a good day overall.
