Sundays in the fall are for football. And wings. And delicious homebrewed beer. You can let me know in the comments how contradictory it is for me to talk about beer and wings in a fitness post. But, let me point out the following…
- My homebrewed hefeweizen is the bomb.
- The wings are full sections and oven baked – no fried stuff in my house!
My Eagles played (and won!) on Thursday, so Sunday’s games were more for enjoying my fantasy football teams steamrolling opponents, and, of course, watching Mrs. Breaking’s Chiefs play at night. Fun note – if Aaron Jones (RB – Green Bay) beats George Kittle (TE – San Francisco) by 3 points or more tonight, I’ll go an amazing 6-0 in my fantasy football leagues this week!
I almost didn’t work out today. Mrs. Breaking worked overnight, and Baby Breaking decided to start our day at 3am. I was freaking tired. I spent the AM bottling my dark belgian beer, and watching Baby Breaking while Mrs. Breaking slept (again – she worked overnight). The early game came and went. It was the Chargers @ Browns. Usually that would be a special type of torture, but the Browns (this game notwithstanding) are kind of fun to watch this year. After that, I was “treated” to the Rams @ Broncos. For the most part, it was a crud fest, and became more of a, “…when will they bench Case Keenum…” type of game. I get that the Rams are good, but 2018 Case Keenum looks like Jeff Fischer Case Keenum – not the one that dazzled in Minnesota in 2017.
Anyway, as that game was plodding along, I had a mental debate in my head. Should I keep being lazy, or should I put on my big boy pants and do a workout? The wings were about an hour or so in my belly, as was my last hefe. The exercise part of my brain won, I said “screw it,” and I went downstairs to press play. I cued up Power Sculpt and hoped it was as short as Speed MMA.
It wasn’t. But, it wasn’t as long as Dynamic Strength, so hooray for that.
Overall, this workout delivered. At the end, I was sweating, and I was proportionally tired for the amount of work that we did. The amount, variety, and difficulty in ground-based pushing moves is what did the tiring. Round 9 put the icing on the cake. 60 seconds of push ups, especially at the END of your workout, is enough to make you want to yaak. I checked my pulse a couple of times throughout, and it was easily over 110 bpm whenever I checked. I guess 9 rounds is a nice happy medium between the 12 rounds of Dynamic Strength, and the 6 rounds of Speed MMA where you wonder – did I actually work out enough????
Move of the day: hip drive through – again – that was just fun. When Jericho first demoed it, I thought, “…what the hell…,” then, when I did it, I was like, “…ohhh, I get it….”
Runner up MOTD: plank skaters – it’s a nice way to spice up planks which can get “blah” if you do them too much/too often.
Probably going to do sometype of yoga on Monday, and then attack the next Core de Force workout on Tuesday.
