Distinct’s Ultimate Health & Conditioning

We’ve moved!

Well, it’s official. I am now going to fully stop posting here and will solely update the new site. Visit me at www.distincthealth.com! I am still finalizing everything, but the site itself works, looks good and has all of the functionality as this one. More to come!

Three efforts for time of:
Run 800 meters

This was a fun one, but since I’m not a hardcore running fan I decided to do bicycle sprints instead. At least this helps me keep in decent shape for the next season.

Yesterday’s bout of death was a crazy 30 Muscle-ups for time, or 120 pull-ups and 120 dips if you cannot do the MU or don’t have proper equipment. I’m not sure whether I agree that 4 pull-ups and 4 dips is an effective replacement for 1 muscle up for me personally, as I can do 1 muscle-up (however silly I may look) and the level of exhaustion feels more like 2 explosive dip/PU combinations. Needless to say, I only did half of the RX’d substitution explosively and by bringing myself back from the dead many times. I am the new Lazarus of bodyweight training.

Today’s workout is easy and something I never thought I’d see from CrossFit: Run 5k!

I think I’m going to do 5 – 10 miles on my road bike instead.

Thruster 3-2-2-2-1-1-1-1-1 reps

For those who do not know what a thruster is aside from that it’s one of my favourite compound exercises, check out the folowing brief video from CrossFit’s exercise page.

Oh yeah, did I mention that I’m chuckling my ass off over the phrase ‘thruster video’? No? Well I am, so there…

Pleasant Progress – 2 Month Retrospective

Well, I am surely pleased with my current diet and especially with my exercise. The pic below is a progress pic from September 9th to November 9th. I started doing my current exercise routine in late August, so it’s a pretty good ‘before/after’ comparison. I may still be ‘skinny lookin’ to some of you, but I am very impressed with my progress and especially my strength (although not with my crappy posing)… I’ve never before in my life been able to do more than 1 or 2 chin-ups with my palms facing away from me, and now I can do over 20. Shit, soon I’ll be doing muscle-ups as easily as a Marine does pushups!!
