2015 - Small Gains / Big Pains

Post by itlives on Thu Jan 01, 2015 2:24 pm

The title pretty much says it. This year I'm planning on small gains. I'm working through accumulated pains from a lifetime of use and abuse of the body.
My main pains are my right hip and left knee. The hip manifested itself during last year. The knee is from an old skating injury.
Martial arts and totaling 3 vehicles has surely played a part, also.

Anyway, now that I'm through crying, here's my plan.

I will work on being able to complete the 10 Set of Hell. That is goal number one. I know the 10SOH are a challenge and not necessarily a good training regimen because they are so triceps intensive. My arms can use it.

I will use yoga to try and regain some ROM in the old bones.

I will try not to fall too far behind on the squat challenge.

That's it as far as working out goes. Personally , I still have my house and dungeon and will appreciate any prayers to be able to keep both for another year!
I am looking forward in anticipation of a great year of personal gains for all here and any new members we can get!

Hi Mike,

Sounds like a good plan for 2015. Good, sometimes, to give the body a little gentleness in addition to all of the grinding and consequent rebuilding that we all do in our training. I'm not sure what a "Set From Hell" is, but I'm sure it is suitably painful.

Have a good New Year's Day.

Mike, you can count on my prayers that you can keep the house and dungeon. At one point you seemed certain you would lose them, and it was painful for you. If there is hope that you can hang on to them, then I am praying as hard as I can that God will grant that hope!!

The training plans look good! You will get the 10 SOH before you know it!

I appreciate the prayers. I did think I was going to lose it. Here it is a year later and I'm still in it. I'm taking it day by day.
I disagree with one thing though. The 10SOH will not get here before I know it!
I'm going to know it alright!

I'm thinking it would be better to just record it in our daily log. You could get a lot of threads going and be hard to keep up with all of them.

The first set was almost the SOH.
They were missing the pushups. So I did push ups in the second set after a rest.
I can't do dips and pushups for enough sets to get a workout in.
Splitting up the work will eventually pay off!

very nice, Mike. good luck as you progress.
Right now you are doing 5 sets. How will you know or decide when to move on to 6 sets and so on? time and or just sets completed.

Thanks Cesar. I'm actually not even doing 5 sets because my arms cannot do the dips and the push ups.
I'm thinking to get to 10 sets with the dips (they are the hardest for me) and then start adding in the push ups to make a whole SOH.
So, right now, the way I did last nights workout seems to be a way to move ahead and get "Phil like" tri's.

3 is all I could do of REAL Sets of Hell. (Actually, for those that don't know, it's 10 squats, not 20). But it's not the squats that are tough it's all the push work.

A little yoga goes a long way. I do it daily along with some other strength/ stretching exercises. Although it doesn't do wonders for me, it helps keeping me from getting stiff - is that the stiffness from getting old?

Indeed, yoga is a wonderful thing! I do not think it could be my only workout, but I really enjoy the relaxation and stretching, and it is a good finisher. After a tough workout, many of those poses can be really hard to hold!

As I recall, the SOH felt easy until I reached that one magical round where I hit a wall, and all movement from that round forward (including post workout) was as if my skeleton suddenly weighed 10x heavier than normal.

As I recall (many moons ago) I posted I was
going out to do (try) the 10 SOH. DAVE , you checked up on me. It was like my firsts one or two workouts in the bodyweight world. That really meant a lot to me
I think I managed 6 sets that first time out.

Today, I was invited to a power yoga class. I took it. It as was much like Rodney
Yee but an hour long. I like it. As a side note , I'm. on a two week fast. I won't be doing much more than yoga unless I bow out of the fast.

1\11\15-
1 hour yoga

So no squat for the next two weeks?
What does your two week fast entail? No food period, only one meal per day, just fluid? Curious.

I'll do the squats.
Two weeks fasting for me looks like this
3 days hot teas and water
3 days fruit, soup and hot teas and water
3 days the above and add nuts
5 days one meal at night only
Since I still have to work for a living I'm flexible in this. The first 3 days is the purification part ( the hardest). After that if my work load isn't too bad, it isn't too hard. One meal at night is called a Jerusalem fast. I've done it for the whole two weeks before.

My church does a two week prayer and fasting at the beginning of every year. We pray for different things daily. Starting with self, and ending up with the world. We have an intercessory team that prays for individual requests. We believe in prayer!

Throughout the year, I may do one or two 24 hour cleansing fasts. I think the body needs a rest from all the junk intake. Even if you eat good, most people cannot afford a full organic diet all the time. I'm one of those...

1-2 24 hour fast?  as in just water for that time. Cleansing the body and soul.

Prayer is a very powerful thing.  As a group, prayer more powerful.

Yes, just water and organic herbal teas.
You can get detox teas, teas for energy, relax, invigorate, cognitive function, really whatever there's an herb for, you can get in a tea -almost.
Some herbs have to be boiled down with, or put in alcohol to get the effective ingredients out of the herb.
I really love the natural healing that goes with the Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicines.

Mike, it is awesome that you and your church make such a commitment to prayer. The impact that has is enormous!

My goodness, I agree that is quite a commitment -- a two week fast! I also agree about the teas. I drink a lot of green and white teas myself though I drink them more because I enjoy them than for any health benefits. So a couple of years after I started I was pretty surprised and pleased to learn they were good for one.

I imagine after a couple of weeks of fasting and yoga, you'll certainly be cleansed.

Well, I failed at my first three days radical fast. I made it 40 hours with water and tea. I broke last night and had a big meal.
So I'm moving right into the Jerusalem fast part.
I always think I can do it (I did three days radical once before) but then work kills me and my will power.
I'll still do teas during the day and one meal at night....and pray.

Good for you! Most people do not even try, so the effort is worth a lot!

The traditional Catholic fast for Lent is 40 days long, in which one is permitted to eat a meal per day and eventually a collation (small snack) of under 8 ounces was permitted per day as well. And one may drink water, tea or other beverages without restriction. And dispensations were frequently given for individuals who worked, especially considering that during most of history that entailed physical labor in the fields for most people.

That's what gets me. The church wide (not mandatory) fast never happens when I can just show work the back door. Doing the hour long power yoga on Sunday didn't help, either.
