Back in the Saddle Again

Hello all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hopefully no one overdid and messed up any of their weight loss goals.

I have been on the mend from my broken rib and I am just about right back where I left off before I was injured.

I will begin with today as day 1 of "2012 Kick My Ass So I Can Kick Yours Season."

If you would like to follow along to challenge yourself or give me pointers to challenge myself and others feel free to comment.

I began today with stairs. I went to the 9th floor 6 times. There are 16 flights with 9 steps in most flights but 11 steps in flights for the first 3 floors for a grand total of 156 stairs. 156 stairs X 6=936 stairs!

After finishing stairs I did 3 sets of 10 push-ups, 3 sets of 2 pull-ups (my weakness-I am working toward being able to do 5) and 2 reverse pull-ups. I also stretched the area between my shoulder blades to help strengthen the muscles where my rib was broken.

Over my lunch today I did 3 sets of 10 bench jumps, 3 sets of cone cross runs, and 3 sets of scissor kick hops.

I also have practice tonight for 2 hours, 1 hour on skates and 1 hour off skates.

Tune in tomorrow for 12/01/2011 workout.

Side Tracked

The very night I wrote my last blog I broke a posterior rib at scrimmage. You would be surprised how many of your muscles are connected to your ribs. It hurts a lot!

I will still be running, but the jump training and such will take a back burner for at least 3 weeks to allow time for my ribs to heal.

If anyone can give me pointers on how to strengthen the muscles around my spine I would appreciate it.

I will pick up where I left off as soon as I get back into the routine of my hardcore training.
