What We Talked About:
1. Is it possible to fit your fist up your butt, all the way to your elbow (later confirmed to be possible by my sister in law. Well, I took her word for it).
2. Do balls get saggier after guys lose a bunch of weight (he says no).
3. If you built up your grip strength, could you squeeze a dick so hard it was permanently broken?
4. How Bosu balls and exercise balls were all the rage a few years ago, and now they're largely ignored.
(I don't know why I look terrified/about to kill someone)
Lots of stretching
10 kb swings
5 goblet squats
10 sec stiff arm hang
30 second rest
repeat as many times as possible for 10 minutes
Oh man, I hate those hangs. They make me want to vomit.
And then my back was twinging a little bit, so he made me do the single most ridiculous thing I've ever had to do in the gym. It involved standing a foot away from the mirror, facing away, and putting my arms down under my crotch, leaning over, and trying to touch the mirror. I looked like a retarded stripper who had to pee. People kept actually stopping and commenting on how ridiculous I looked. It was that bad.
12 hamstring curls
20 multi planer lunges (we only did this twice. My knee started twinging the second round, so we skipped it the third round)
12 Lat pulldowns
12 (per arm) weird old machine row thing
10 cobras w/2.5lb weights
60 sec plank
So, with my back twinging, I'm going to start doing my back stretches again.
My knee probably just misses running, so I'm going to cut rest week short and head out for a slow run today to see if that drops everything back into place. I've been itching to run anyway.
I have a 10k mud run on Saturday, and a 10k regular run on Sunday. One of those days I have to turn in an 11 mile run. I'll probably save it for Sunday, and break it up. 10k + 5 miles. And thus will begin marathon training.
Are you doing anything fun this weekend?
