how to modify jump training, 15/15 of j rock?:) another question of the day:)

video
here's a vlog i did on last saturday while riding all around chicago for about 4 hours....this spot is amazing! and what's even more amazing it's minutes from my home, right off the lakefront, it's downtown and hardly anyone was there on a beautiful sunny saturday!!! now for me that is perfect on all points cause i just love getting away from it all and being in nature and this hit the spot!
notice the wild grass too.....this little video doesnt do it justice, but if you're in chicago or near by you need to get over here and check it out....awesome!

April 9, 2012, Monday 4 x amap
  • 2g  + vest AMUs x LAST WEEK: 4,4,4,4,4
  • THIS WEEK: 5,5,4,4,4 (+2)
    • Rest
  • Pullups to nips x LAST WEEK 1,1,1,1,1,1,1=7
  • THIS WEEK: 2,2,2,2,2,2,2=14 (+7)
  • HSPUs off 6"boxes x LAST WEEK 1,1,1,1,1,1,1=7
  • THIS WEEK: 2,2,2,2=8 (+1) forth set of 2 i was struggling alot so called it on that one...still UP!!:)
  • 15/15 x amap minutes up to 5, stop when fatiguing..if completed go up next week in reps or weight
  • Dips.            x10s x 3 min = 60
  • Cliff crawls x 1 x 5 min =10

April 11, 2012 WEDNESDAY - 15/15 x 10 minutes
  • assisted muscle ups (140lbs R8, R6) x 4,2,2,2,2 / 2,2,2,2,2 = 22
  • single bar dips x 6,4,4,4,4 / 4,4,4,4,4 = 42 
    • GREAT combo PLUS i'm stoked to do this same one next week as i'm confident i'll improve!!:)
  • feet on 30" box + 17lb vest, hands on paralettes push ups x 10 x 6 = 60 
  • pullups + 17lb vest x 10 x 3 = 30 
    • GREAT combo again!! both on point for reps as had a heck of a time finishing with same reps which means i picked the right numbers to keep throughout!
BUYOUT - 10-2 power wheel rollouts to chest and hold while partner does reps....this got hard!!!!!:)
Rare to say a 3.9* workout but this was!!!:) THIS IS RARE AS I'VE NEVER PUT DOWN A PERFECT 4.0 WORKOUT....MAYBE THE DAY I DO THE BAR-BARIANS REQUIREMENTS AND DUNK!!!:) NOW THAT'S A 4*!!!!:) HAHAHA IT'S GOT TO BE FUN, HARD, CHALLENGING AND FEEL GREAT AFTERWARDS!!! ACROSS THE BOARD THIS ONE WAS!

Thursday 4.12.12 "THE RAMP!" = the "shiddy walk" if you dont know what that is then ya betta ask somebody!!!:) haha
10 rounds of:
  • Sprint to top 80 yards, walk down
  • Low backpedal to top
  • Last time crawl to top forw/back
Wicked!! NOW why do i say this workout ='s the shiddy walk....what is that? well it's just a slang that goes around the weight rooms for football in college....its when your legs are so pumped you walk with your chest and butt sticking out and sort of swinging your legs....basically they're FULL as possible with blood and pump:)

EISCHENS YOGA: been just focusing on consistent work, doing alot of back dome and feeling light and fortunately that's happening. Left knee started hurting soon after beginning my jump training again so as you can see i've modified my jump training a bit...and doing my EY has got me feeling pretty good so pretty sure i can do more vertical jumps and 1 legged jumps in the next week or two....no rush though as i'm still doing alot of 1 legged work to support the balance and strength i first need to then jump with full power again!

PLANT STRONG MEALS: here just focusing on eating alot of greens and drinking alot of greens. Along with that mixing those in with beans, nuts and seeds and some occassional pseudo grains too. That has been working pretty well too as my numbers are getting better, i'm feeling pretty good and for sure with a little better sleep can improve even more (sleeping better, up to about 6-7 hours a night now)

QUESTION OF THE DAY: how do you eat Green & Lean when eating:
  1. Italian
  2. Mexican
  3. Thai
  4. American
I've done all and all are do-able my friends, now it's your turn to think and answer:)

Eat Green, Get Lean....walk the walk:)

  1. I often experience the same thing here in LA. Minutes from the traffic and crowds are miles of open space that you can frequently have to yourself, especially on weekdays. I also think your long rumbling rides are a key component to both happiness and health. Just riding, no stopwatch.

    1. Ha! I meant to write "rambling, not "rumbling". Maybe your rides are that too. :)

  2. Hey Jon, I found that spot last summer exploring Chicago on my bike, mostly inspired by hanging out around MBG Chicago, and even in the best weather of summer that spot is sparsely traveled. It's beautiful and I'm looking forward to heading back to the south side this summer!
