Combat Training - Traditional Strength Prequel Week; Day 1; Sunday 5:00PM-6:30PM (Rope Work)
Posted Sep 12 2008 7:18pm
This is my first workout since taking a layoff 5 weeks ago. As it turns out, my shoulder has something wrong with it that may be somewhat significant. The extra rest was necessary to allow for recover. It is not perfect even now. An MRI in one week will reveal more.
Today was just cardio. I resume traditional strength in one week. The next week will be cardio and cables, just to get muscles and lungs use to stress again.
I have started using a line of supplements I will tell you more about in a separate post, but it will be interesting to see just how good they are.
Rope Work 170, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100, 100 (60 seconds or less between sessions) Not bad at all. Did not get winded. Endurance good, all things considered I am very pleased.
Very nice, felt very natural. I am surprised that the lack of activity for 5-6 weeks has gone so unnoticed by my respiratory endurance. Naturally, my muscle mass have suffered quite a bit. But that will return in short order.
