Hi I'm Raptron. I do stuff. This upcoming challenge, I have a good amount of travel planned (Maine for Memorial Day weekend, lakehouse in the Poconos in a couple of weeks, work trip to Long Island, and NYC for Pride!) so keeping on top of my workout schedule will be a bit trickier than normal. None of these goals are new goals, but not all of them are easy for me (see: cleaning + running blahhhh) so they're back in the rotation! 

 

1. Bumble butt 

  • Glute accessory every lifting workout

 

2. Balancing on a flower

  • Balance work 2x per week

 

3. Search for nectar 

  • Run at least once a week (NP counts!)

 

4. Keep a tidy hive

  • Dishwasher stuff 2x per week
  • Pantry deep clean

HELLOOOOO AND WELCOME ALL!!! Side note: Every time I read bumble butt, I sing it to myself to -- let's generously call it -- the "tune" of Bubble Butt.

It's Zero week! And I just ran a big old obstacle course race on Saturday, obviously that means I've done 3 workouts since then... >_>

 

Day 0.1

I went to gymnastics practice, mostly with the intent of getting quality stretching in to help my muscles get their game face back. Stretching was good, tumbling was not feeling so hot -- probably because my hamstrings and adductors were still super tired and tight. I didn't spend long on floor. Unfortunately during the race, I did manage to mangle the tips of one of my fingers pretty thoroughly. It's a slight sprain and not too bad, but it's on my middle finger right on the knuckle that would be in my grips for uneven bars, so no bars either.

With those off the table, my only remaining option was balance beam. I continued to work on front walkovers and back handsprings (with my fingers taped, hah). Plus some work on trying to get a valdez (back walkover from a seated position) on the low beam. I still can't usually get both hands on, so now I am experimenting with doing them one-handed. I can do it on the floor but it's a lot of pressure on the one elbow so I think it'll take some training up to actually feel comfortable or worth trying on the balance beam. 

 

Day 0.2

It is a bit delayed from taking time out of the program for the race but here was the last set of 10s! Heck yes. Time to move back into 5s. I think the hypertrophy block had the intended effect. My upper body and upper legs are feeling pretty beast mode big lately. BEE MODE, PERHAPS?

Day 0.3

Went to November Project at the stadium this morning for Yearbook photo day. This is my 4th yearbook photo and I've only been coming on and off for a bit over 3 years... so I guess that makes sense...? The theme was under the sea so I wore an old diving bathing suit (and considered going pantsless but everyone else was wearing pants so I kept mine on for once) and goggles. There was a dude with a bucket of actual kelp who wandered around with it draped over him much of the morning, bringing the authentic sea smell with him. It made me realize I could have brought an actual octopus or something equally gross, but ah well. 

 

I had low expectations for my performance but still eked out 31 sections and felt pretty good! The only thing unpleasant was that swimsuits are purposely designed to NOT be absorbent so sweat was rolling down me like crazy. 

 

So, the rest of Zero week. I will get some sort of workout in tomorrow during the morning or during lunch in my work gym. In theory, this could be a lifting workout but it's such a crapshoot because there is only one rack and people are ALWAYS in it. If not the first day of 5s, I'll do some sort of alternative strength circuit and maybe some hand balancing. 

 

After that though, I'm out to Maine Friday morning and come back Monday... sometime. We're going to be on an island so I doubt any formal workouts will be part of the weekend. Hiking, wandering, etc., though will certainly happen. :) And there's no reason I can't enjoy some yoga or balance work while I'm up there.

That looks like a painful knuckle. Ouch!

sorry about your traffic finger, hope its back to normal and rocking soon :D

 

Thanks! It's less bruised now but I'm expecting at least a week before it's back to normal. Luckily, it only hurts a little when closing my hand. Most of the pain is if I try to move it sideways -- not a super common way to move a finger anyway. :)

NOOO finger injury! Also, it looks like it could've been caused by bees!
Also - the costumes for your stadium runs are amazing! There is always a theme?

Only sometimes! There is usually a theme for yearbook day (once a year) and occasionally for other events. I do love costuming though, so I find any excuse to dress up...

 

Day 0.4

My friend wants to leave at 5:30 AM tomorrow morning. I had to get up early yesterday for the stadium. I have a blood donation appointment at 5:30 PM tonight... with all of these things combined, it only made sense to get up early this morning  -- wait, what?! Okay, I maybe also laid down for what was supposed to be an hour long nap at 8:00 PM and didn't wake up until 1:00 AM... But THAT ASIDE.  I headed in early to get to the work gym by 7:00 AM. Once I got there, I did bench, but decided squats would be better to just wait until next week. I'll probably repeat the bench workout also. 

dc1abf24d8bf042eb6ccee0ee401cf97.png

After that, I did 3x of...

16 walking lunges - 35# DBs + 2 pull-ups + 10 lat raises - 12.5# DBs + 10 25# front plate raises

 

Then 3x this circuit: 

10 push-ups + some random distance of plank drags on sliders + 10 one-legged glute bridges per side 

 

Plus some handstand practice for about 10-15 minutes. Then I still had another 30 minutes before I wanted to shower and change for work, so I ran 3 miles, on the treadmill because I didn't feel like going out in the rain, for all-together about an hour and a half of workout stuff. Not bad for a gross morning workout. :)
