    Thursday 8/12- Wolverine
    4.5 mile trail run
    stop at 2 mile mark for the following lifts:
    30- squat clean pres
    30- dead lift
    30- 'KB' swings
    30- push ups
    finish the run.

    This one wasted me. I had to walk much of the second half of the trail.

    I'll have to put a timer on this one next time around.

    How'd you get access to the weights?

    I found three different sized boulders and a heavy branch for the overhead squats.

    I like lifting awkward or odd shaped objects. I think I get a better workout with these items over balanced weights. Then again it's not to say I think this should completely replace weights.

    general physical preparedness. I'm probably using it incorrectly here. anyways - those are awesome workouts. KBs are really fun for conditioning, too!

    cheers

    GPP- I like that.

    I have no need for a 315 bench or huge squat. I've found over my 44 years those things rarely come into play in life. However what I've found to be useful is to be able to spend a full day on my feet either hiking or urban walking with my arms full of my girlfriends shopping. I can also spend a day of doing heavy yard work without my back killing me. You'd be surprised how much work it takes to get a stubborn shrub out of the ground.

    If you need any ideas for a workout let me know. I continually come up with new challenges for myself based on the environment presented.

    likewise!

    whenever something cool comes up, I'll give you a shout. (when I get back to crossfitting, hopefully there'll be some fun stuff)

    Friday 8/20- 2 hours bouldering session at the cliffs.

    readily handling V4s. My climbing seems to have improved with the weight loss. But do I like being skinny?

    Saturday 8/21- Wolverine again.
    That guy is tough. as usual I was a wasted sack after that one. However I walked much less of the run than in my prior effort.

    Monday 8/23- Hiked 9 miles in Bear mountian park. enjoyed a Bitches brew from Dogfish head.

    I like the creativity in your work outs. A couple posts back in the Spiderman workout you listed 50 cartwheels. Do you do those all in a row?

    Alternate directions so you don't get dizzy.

    If you're good; cartwheel into the handstand, lower to a headstand, press back up, and finish the cartwheel.

    bring an axe for Tabata wood chopping, Stone carrying competition with friends, pick nick table box jumps, log balancing, and shot put are a few things I'd try.

    The world is your gym. You just a have to figure out what to do with it.
