Default NHSB’s Gym Log

Experimenting with the Gym Log feature.

I have been doing almost daily zone 2 training (or, more accurately, MAF 180 training) since late July, hoping to “improve mitochondrial function”, and “increase fitness and fat burning”. I recently added planks to dip my toes back into strength training, along with some mobility work. I plan to add jump work for bone density once these basics feel like habit.

I used to do regular strength training and HIIT but had to stop in early 2021 due to heart rhythm issues. Trying to build back up to a regular, more well rounded practice.

Hoping a dedicated log will help improve my consistency as I grow these practices.

Plan:
MOVEMENT
- daily 4 mile walk, was attempting zone 2 daily, shifting to zone 1 on occasion for recovery
STRENGTH
- planks, working up to daily 2-4 minute high plank, dropped back to MWF to allow for recovery, will add more as this habit becomes entrenched
MOBILITY
- daily stretches, some longer yoga sessions
JUMP WORK
- tbd, in future, work up to 1-2 sessions of jumping exercise per week to help bone density. jumping jacks, squat jumps, …

Time to go walk…

I wasn’t certain that merely starting a thread here would automatically create a gym log link on my posts, but it worked. Cool!

10/28 4 miles in zone 2. I found yet another nearby hiking trail. Beautiful, but the hills were really steep. I hope I don’t get rebound hunger from the effort.

STRENGTH - MWF, working up to 4 minute plank
prior planks: 50 sec high or forearm plank
10/28 45 sec high plank, can’t decide whether to stick to forearm planks or graduate to straight arm planks…

MOVEMENT - Changing this goal a bit. When I have to walk on steep hills, 4 miles is just too much. daily x 4 miles on flat ground, mostly in zone 2 heart rate (60-70% max), OR 3 miles on steep hills with periods at higher heart rate, but still within MAF 180 heart rate range (70-75% max). Working to improve MAF 180 20 min distance on flat ground
prior MAF 180 20 min distance: 1.18 miles, avg 115 bpm
11/01 3 miles on steep hills between zone 2 and MAF 180 heart rate

STRENGTH - MWF, working up to 4 minute plank; TThS, working up to 4 minute superman to strengthen posterior chain
prior planks: 50 sec forearm plank; 60 sec high plank
11/01 30 sec superman

MOBILITY & BALANCE - daily, stretches, working up to 60 sec Eagle poses
11/01 stretches, Eagle Pose 30 sec each “side”

JUMP WORK TTh, working up to 5 min jumping jacks+squat jumps
11/01 30 jumping jacks, 10 squat jumps
