I am back after a long break.
I doubt that I will be updating this often but feel the need to document a few things here as they may be of value to others. The context of all of this is to have the strength, flexibility, and endurance I need to live a high quality regular life.
- It is better for me, at over 40, to do something light to medium often than something heavy to extreme rarely.
- I have found the set and rep scheme for the Recon Ron Pull-Up Profram to be of value for other things. I use “Double Ron” or “Half Ron” for kettlebell exercises. See more here:

All of the above being said, what works best for my life and my schedule is the following:
Monday: Five sets of pull-ups a la Recon Ron; five sets of kettlebell swings; five sets of trunk twists with ankle weights.
Tuesday: 25 minutes of yoga using my Yoga Studio App
Wednesday: Five sets of pull-ups a la Recon Ron; five sets of kettlebell squats; five sets of the ab roller
Thursday: 25 minutes of yoga using my Yoga Studio App
Friday: Five sets of pull-ups a la Recon Ron; five sets kettlebell overhead press
Saturday: Run 3 miles
Sunday: Run 3 miles
All of the above can be modified as needed if you want to challenge yourself or pull back a bit.
Meal wise due to genetics I have found the DASH diet to work well. Additionally, I enjoy focusing my lunch on high potassium and dinner on high soluble fiber.
