“Hard week”

March 10th, 2009  |  Published in OMGBFFA's blog  |  5 Comments

In hindsight I feel like I barely worked out at all last week. It was supposed to be a light week for recovery, but the volume was way lower than I am used to. This week, however, is designated as a hard week, with a lot more interval training and conditioning, plus another hour of strength training.

Yesterday I went in early to Bang Fitness and did ten minutes of intervals, twenty seconds on and ten seconds off. There’s something really awesome about being in the gym all by yourself early in the morning, including the fact that I can set the satellite radio to the 80s station and crank it up so that my training is done to “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and “Rio”. Last night I went back to Bang and did a light conditioning circuit: six high-intensity exercises, five times through, for a total of 20 minutes. No 80s music, but some of my training partners were there cheering me on, and I discovered that I am apparently known (even outside of my gym) as someone to watch. Probably because I fall down a lot, and falling down is amusing.

Today is a low calorie day. I have an hour of strength training with Geoff, followed by two hours of grappling training. Then, starting at 10pm tonight, I do my second fast. Tomorrow I have 30 minutes of cardio in the morning and ten minutes of interval sprints, which will both be done fasted. That should be an interesting experience – stay tuned for that report!

    Hello OMGBFFA!

    Am loving the updates, keep them coming! Just curious where you do your interval training. do you run sprints? bike? stairs?

    It should be regular sprints, but I’ve also done things like stairs, sled drags and kettlebell swings. I’m finding access to a treadmill… problematic. Given that Geoff doesn’t actually have one. :)

    Do you have a job? Hobbies? How the hell do you do this every day?

    While I won’t presume to speak for anyone else, I would imagine that fitness and BJJ is (one of) OMGBFFA’s hobby. If you think of fitness and training as something you have to do, it sucks, but if it’s something you want to do, it gets lots easier. Turning off the TV helps too.
