Day 25 of 90: did 2 videos shoots today and rode my bike a bit:)

Image
Well today we had TWO video shoots!!
In the morning we did one at the MBG for TV and this took about 2 hours of doing our
workouts and talking about the MBG...it went pretty well and everybody who joined us
really did a great job. Got to love your students who come in and support what your doing
with there free time!! Very Very cool!!
From there we rode our bikes out to the west side of madison (about 8 miles) to do our
advanced exercises for the NEW Jungle Gym dvd...this also went pretty well too and took
another 4 hours so after riding back to the MBG downtown we'd been pretty busy this day:)
It was pretty funny though how crazy tired i felt after this:) the crazy thing about riding out
there (at about 10 mph:) was little hills or stiff breezes were making me cough like crazy!
either way it was good to get home and relax.
it's also very cool some people wrote me and said Jon Chill out my friend, rest and recover!
much appreciation my friend! that is cool!
i'm chillin th…

hey guys, i'm doing my best, looking at recovering my energy, looking at feeling strong again:)
did not mention that one month ago doing our 75s workout i got "Lung Burn". It is a literally
burning sensation to your lungs you get immediately during or after a very very intense workout.
metabolic workouts will do this and in my case one did...broke my old record on it but the lung
burn was not worth the price of achieving this. You begin coughing…

Day 22 of 90: HSW, Rope, PW + 52lbs crawls

Image
If you read my last post i mentioned some fatique since the intensive course.
Because of this i've got to pay attention to this big time and not push myself over the edge.
So today even though i'm feeling a bit better, still not at 100%, so did more sets at lower intensities:
MBG 1: Did Eischens Yoga beginner sequence
MBG 2: 
Handstand walks: 125 yards total walked varying in distance from 12 yards to 30...did 6 sets total
Rope climbs: 130 feet climbed on 6 sets: 20, 20, 20, 30, 20, 20
did these in a really relaxed easy manner and they felt good, not too overwhelming at all.

Then did Power Wheel crawls but added extra weight...52lbs! actually this went great!
40 yards, 40 yards, 30 yards = 110 yards total.
the first set of 40 was very very easy, for sure could have done 60 yards on my first set for sure!!

MBG 3: 
spinach smoothie: spinach, mangos, bananas, SOlife and pumpkin seeds and almondsezekial bread, raw cashew butter, 100% strawberry jam (P&J sandwich) healthy style:)kale,…

Day 19, 20, 21 of 90: listening to my body

Hey y'all, well as much as i've wanted to stay on the 5 days on/ 2 days rest cycle i'm taking this fri-sun off to re-coup my body and mind...i need it as the last few weeks have been overwhelming and i have not rested and slept enough to restore my energy. still eating clean, still doing my beg EY seq, but reading and resting and sleeping more to help restore my energy so i can come back on monday feeling stronger and continue my progress for the rest of the 90 days.
my lesson here...i'm not superman, i need to re-charge and re-store.
during the intensive i just kept saying do my best to just keep going...and i did..but fatique crept in
after that the toronto trip, same mindset...keep going...a bit more fatique crept in
then this last week of training...yes i progressed but towards the last day, despite still improving on my time from last week the exercises did not feel as easy...i did not feel strong but just did it because i have a strong mind and because i had a ti…

MBG 2 WORKOUT:
Power Wheel crawls + 40lb vest: 40 yards...very very easy!!!

A new PR and i did it on my last set!! This really gives me alot of confidence for hitting the 100 yard Power Wheel crawl with 40lb vest!!:)

alternated PW with Rope Climbs...both with 40lb vest!! First time doing this and the Rope with vest was very challenging!

20' Rope Climbs + 40lb vest: 40', 20', 20', 20' = 100 feet. This was extremely challenging...BUT...i did it:) haha If any of you are…

Day 15 of 90: 4 strong meals, EY, bball, jumping better!!

Image
Today i'm beginning to feel back to normal even more:) eating at home again and NOT having to get up early and teach or work all day is very cool:) haha. Since training my HSW and PW yesterday today became a jumping and running day and it worked out great as i was very busy today teaching a class, training my high school and college players and an NBA player. all the trainings went great! all the athletes did a great job, my NBA player has improved from touching 11'3 off two feet to 11'7" in just the last 3 weeks and he also added a foot to his 5 jump broad jumps going from 52' total distance to a very very strong 53' even!!! Most all of my high school / college players are now dunking with one band of the power jumper on as well which is really really cool...makes the 0 set very easy dunking and i love seeing them cup dunk hard:) (cup dunk for those who dont know what it is is when you curl the ball in against your forearm and dunk it...got to get up alot hig…

Day 14 of 90: tired but still did it!! HSW, Chins, PW40 crawl

Image
Day 14 of 90 for sure a tough day of training, felt about 60-70% ready to go but felt today was a good chance to do my HSW and PW40 crawls on football field...i usually do both of these at the MBG on my 15 yard floor, so i usually do alot of turning. Either way, not feeling good, still wanted to take advantage of a full field to train.
Intensive and trip roughed me up but i still improved!!!:) this makes me very happy as i did not even feel up to training today at all...still very tired but had to do it:)

Day 12 & 13: traveling to toronto and not feeling good

travelled to Toronto to show some of my dads and mine Lifeline equipment all day friday
and today saturday and it ended up being just too much travel right after doing the intensive course
did not realize how much energy i'd used up teaching til we got on the plane to fly....tired a bit:) haha
need a rest and recovery and i knew it so i thought instead of training to train on top of working all day
i decided to rest at night and not train friday and saturday...worked all day today and then got on a flight home and no way i'm training tonight:) haha
so my MBG 3 training? well did my eischens yoga each day, did eat plant based and i did do all types of
chin ups and pullups all day each day but they were very easy compared to what i normally do and the same is true for my HSW replacements of various push ups on the jungle gym, power push up and others exercises.
i'm tired:) and going to bed....listening to my body and mind...got to recover otherwise all this work, too little …

Day 3 of 90 was without question my toughest day of training yet!
Did my best to re-coup after the intensive but needed alot more rest and recovery and i was just dragging today...despite this though....I STILL IMPROVED:) haha over last weeks workout.

MBG 1 RESTORATION:
Eischens Yoga beginner sequence, held each pose 4 breath. Rested for a bit before training as i was too tired to train earlier in the day at my usual time and had lots of meetings too so had to workout later in the day and whew that was definitely a challenge.

Day 1 of 90!!! PW, HS and more!

Today was my first day of 90 days to achieve 3 big goals:
Dunking, 100 yard PW crawl + 40lb vest and 100 yard handstand walk!
well today i began my adventure and it went great:)
WORKOUT DAY 1:
Power Wheel crawl + 40lb vest - 100 yards in as few sets as possible AND as fast as possible: 30 yards, 30 yards, 30 yards, 10 yards in 3:24
This does two things i want to achieve my goal...trains the distance AND the conditioning i need for it!

Handstand walking: wanted to go easier on this day will do this first and harder on wednesday. So i did 4 sets of 15 yards as fast as possible....THIS HELPED ALOT!  Really helped me get my speed up for this event with last set done in 16 seconds and 18 strides (L/R = 1 stride). I got to work on improving my speed on both PW and HSW's as time under tension needs to be as little as possible in order to achieve these two goals.

15/15 x 10 minutes of kips resisted with 60lb C-band:
did sets of 5 for the whole thing and man this was an awesome workout, finish…
