052010 Thursday train, eat, read, think:)

Today besides working alot this morning i had a pretty good workout with a new intern at my mbg.
Stephan and i ran 6 sets each of over speed work and 6 sets each of resisted speed work...a drill called "tote running" which i've really loved to do for years. use a C-band around one guys waist and yours, he runs infront of you, you jog behind making him run harder...then after about 30 yards you let the stretched cable slingshot you up to and maybe even past your partner and you both sort of race the last 20-30 yards. then switch and repeat for 6-8 sets each. this is one of my favorite drills to improve speed, perfect for athletes to do because it hits both elements you need to improve...a slight assisted run to increase RPM's and a slight resistance to improve power while sprinting.
my old friend steve williams told me this was the drill he use to do when he held the world record in the 100 meters...he ran 9.9 seven times!!!
it was a great workout, the weather was gre…

Traveling to Tennessee:)

Whew, long day, traveling if you can believe it by air and although it was a fun trip:) it took 10 hours to get here:) Oh well, had great company (jessica:) and we got alot of work done and we always have fun traveling. One thing i thought about on the way here was this guy who we met in LA, this guy was super yoked...Yoke means built like bo jackson for those who dont know:) anyways we were training one sunny day at the santa monica rings area on the beach and we see this guy climb up and down the 20 foot rope...he didnt just climb it either, he did super long reach and grabs and had his legs in the L position too. So he does 1 time to the top & down, then chills, then repeats it about 3 minutes later. So i dont think too much, i just keep doing my pole climbs and handstands and stuff, then about 15 and 30 minutes later i look over and he's still doing the sets of i'm thinking DANG, how many sets is he doing?:) So i go ask him...he did 25 sets! So made me think a …

Tuesday, 5.11.10

Today it is still cold and rainy here in madison...slept in today:) haha and it was awesome:)
Just chillin'!
Started my day with my usual Tea, then banana/date smoothie poured all over a bunch more sliced bananas...but today i replaced them with red bananas and plantain and it was awesome!!
I know i've said it before but DANG!!! This is so good, cant believe it's not ice cream. Then a funny thing happened, i go to a local cafe to work and ge this e-mail from kim lyons of the biggest loser, she is promoting this high protein ice cream, they show all these pics of people losing fat, getting lean, saying it's so tasty and so good for you too. So i investigate, it's ingredients are whey protein, then a bunch of ingredients i could not pronounce and then the sucralose...basically a poison. It is crazy the crap people
sell as healthy, this is exactly why i opened my MBG, this is exactly why i got sick of the bull that the fitness world is pushing on people...crap!! They a…

Monday, whew mentally tough day:)

Today was one of those days that is just challenging:) So instead of crushing myself i just chilled and when it came time to train i did a simple workout and it felt great!
Meals 1: 10 bananas + 12 dates smoothie

Meal 3:  big salad, with sprouts, dulse flakes, tomatos...then had beans and greens after that:) good! Then had 2 sweet potatoes for dessert!!

2/1/0 x 8 Two foot jumps to rim using R6 Power Jumper...this went really good since i hadnt been doing alot of jump training lately. With 2 bands hit about 9'7" for all 8, for 1 band hit 10'1" for 6, for 0 bands got up to about 10'4" which is good for today:)
R7/R5/0 x 8 One foot jumps to rim using C-bands...this went great too. With R7 hit about 9'8" for 8 jumps, with R5 hit 10' on about half of the 8 jumps, with 0 hit 10'6" as my best jump off one foot.
