So I have obviously struggled to stay on top of the blog and keep the post coming. So I am trying something new. Well I am actually trying a lot of new things. I have decided to use the blog as an online workout journal. As I workout and move forward in my fitness journey I am going to use the blog to talk about everything and let you all follow along with me. This isn’t a big difference to the blog, but I want to avoid feeling like I need to blog and like I have to find something to write about. Whatever pops into my head and whatever I do that day I will write about. Basically making a private journal public on the web.
One of the other things I have started doing is using cross-fit WOD’s as a component to my workout program. I am still following Big Man on Campus, but I have added the WOD as the beginning to my workouts. BMOC has about 10 exercises in a day or about an hour of work. So I will complete the WOD and then modify BMOC to reach 10 exercises for the day or an hour of work. Here is a weekly schedule:
No matter what the WOD is for Sunday I take Sunday off. On Saturday if the WOD is all body weight and a workout I can do at home I do the WOD. Anything requiring I go to the gym means and extra rest day.
Today’s routine was 2 min of rowing, 2 min of pullups, 2 min rowing, 2 min of burpees, 2 min rowing and 2 min of situps. To score the workout you add your calories from rowing to your number of exercise reps. My total was 176.
I have also started oil pulling. My wife says it gets the toxins out of your body and has led to reduced migraines, inflammation, better mouth health, less bloating, clearer skin, better sleep and higher energy. How do you get these results? Swish a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 20 minutes and then spit it out. That’s it! So far I can say I have been less bloated feeling and have more energy. However I have started working out everyday again, and am eating a very clean diet. So I don’t know if that is the real reason. But I can say that by doing all three things I am very satisfied. Maybe I will start to notice some more benefits and be able to let you know more later.
Well those are the thing on my mind today. Hope you learned a little something from it. Oh yeah- I finished API and check into my first training squadron tomorrow! So that’s cool.
