So I slacked....

 

I have been very inconsistent with my programming over the last several months, and non-existent on my logging. Looking to get some consistency back and posting here seems to help keep me accountable so I'm back...

 

Virtus 2.0: bigger, better, and with more facial hair!

 

Going with the KISS principle here, going to run a modified TB Operator program with 3 strength workouts per week in an A-B-A format:

 

A - squat and bench

B - deads and OH press

A - squat and bench

 

Going to supplement with at least 2 conditioning workouts per week plus hockey 2-3 times a week. 

 

Didn't want to start a new log with nothing to show so I present, for your reading pleasure, the first week of Virtus 2.0:

 

5/1:

Hockey!

 

5/2:

Strength:

Squat 4x5 @ 195

Bench 4x5 @ 175

Pull-ups 3x5

Ring dips 3x5

 

5/3:

Conditioning:

Row 500m/2:00r

x 6 rounds

 

5/4:

Hockey!

 

5/6: 

Strength:

Deadlift 3x5 @ 225

OH Press 4x5 @ 115

Pull-ups 3x5

Ring dips 3x5

 

5/7:

Hockey!

 

5/8:

Hockey!

 

5/9:

Strength:

Squat 4x5 @ 225

Bench 4x5 @ 195

Pull-ups 3x5

Ring dips 3x5

Finally bought a stand-up paddle board today! No more loaners and rentals for me. Got a great deal on a used board in excellent shape from an old friend I haven't seen in a while. Beautiful weather here today so we went out and did a 3.5 mile paddle. Looking forward to doing much more paddling this summer.

Playing hockey again tonight; looking forward to that as I didn't play on Thursday this week like I normally do.

Really nice set-up. Clean and simple. Like the drying rack.

Thanks guys; and leave it to a Canadian to compliment my hockey gear rack eh!

Played hockey again tonight. I can already tell a major difference in my play from being consistent with my workouts for just a couple of weeks. I can skate much harder and longer; and recover from all out efforts quicker. Feels great and it's motivation to keep getting after it. Hoping to get back out on the water and do some more paddling tomorrow afternoon.

I don't think you can ever get it to not stink; just help it to stink a little less. I washed some of my gear the other day for the first time in way too long and was surprised it came out white; it had been so long I thought it was that yellowish brown when I bought it....

I don't play, but always looking at this stuff for my kid's gear. We use an odour and moisture absorber in his bag and skates and it has been working out pretty good. Thinking I might build a rack like that and figure out a way to hook a blow drier or something to it so it dries faster when he has multiple games in a day.

Multiple games in a day is tough unless you have one of the rocket dryers. Rack works well for drying overnight and keeping the smell down. I hang everything up as soon as I get home and just point a fan at it for an hour or two and it gets mostly dry; it's completely dry the next morning.

Did a 3.6 mile paddle tonight and felt pretty good. Was starting to feel some fatigue in my shoulders at the end but nothing major. After working all day it was awesome to get out on the water and enjoy the outdoors.

Looks awesome. I'd like the paddle over to one of those tiny islands to the north at night light up a fire and enjoy a stogie and a sack of wine. Maybe even bring a fishing pole.

I'm jealous. But I have way too many hobbies to start something new.
