    Default rrockwell's Training log

    I'd be lying to you if I said I could still do these. After a series of injuries, kids and eventually back surgery, I've had to since back off from training for awhile.

    Anyways, my training used to consist of this. Now, I didn't own any weights, so I worked out the old fashioned way.

    Running:Consisted of no less than 3 miles a morning. Got up at 5am, everyday and ran no matter what the weather was like.

    Exercise: No less than 200 push ups and 300 sit ups everyday.

    Weights: I did have weight training my senior year, but still maintained my other workout during my early years and during my senior year. I cut and stacked logs of wood everyday.

    You should implement weights, atleast deadlift. It'll improve you posture, strengthen your most important muscles and, just as any kind of weightlifting, increase your bone mass and strengthen your tendons and ligaments.

    Deadlifts are good, but I've always felt that good old fashioned hard work is just as good, if not better. I used to buck bails of hay as well.

    Not better, but different. It's more like k-bells. But yeah, you're right, it really is great. Good ol' hard work, something those iron men of the old (somewhere around 1900) did for living. No supplements (but healthy food and water), no isolation but full body exercises (bent press) and an incredible physique.

    Definately agree. I was fortunate enough that my grandparents had a small farm and we had a wood stove, so there was plenty of hard work to do. Hated doing it, but as I got older it made me tougher.

    As my sons get older, I've been slowly working that sort of stuff in for them.

    I hate doing deadlifts. I can do squats but not deadlifts. I can't nail good posture when I do deadlifts thus causing me back problems. They just annoy me when I try doing them. I know they are great and everything but i't won't kill me by not doing them. It's just that when I do them I put more of my back at work than my legs thus killing my back. I always had problems with my posture and trying to keep my back straight when doing certain exercises or just walking around.

    That might be a health problem worth looking into.

    Yea. I've got good posture now but I just don't do the dealifts still. I don't want to get my back all messed up again. Anyways, there are a lot of better things for me to do than deadlift.
