What did you do today to work towards your 2018 season?
« on: December 11, 2017, 03:58:58 PM »
It's never too early to start preparing for the 2018 season.
Typically during whitetail season and the winter I throttle back a little on workout intensity (I don't stop) and enjoy the holiday meals. ;)


This year I won't do that, so why not start the annual "what did you do today" thread a little early.


For those of your who are not familiar with it; please share what workout, cardio routine, or whatever you did for the day to prepare for your 2018 season.




Good luck everyone and remember "The man on top of the mountain didn't fall there." - Vince Lombardi.

I'll start......


After this last year I wanted to ramp up my weakest point and that's my legs.
So today was a leg day.


Leg presses 6 sets x 10
Leg curls 4 sets x 10
Leg extensions 4 sets x 10
Hack squats 3 sets x 10
Front squats 3 sets x 10
Lunges (racket ball course back and forth x 3)
Calves


Then i finished it up with a 15 minute inclined walk, 5 mile cardio bike ride, abs, and core!
I also through in 40 push ups for good luck!  :train:

Sure, hit me up on a day when I was somewhat 'forced' to hit a buffet for lunch while working. And let's just say I got my money's worth!


I have continued to work on cardio more than anything lately. It's definitely tough to keep it going after elk season passes, but I've tried to stay with it. I hate running, so I've been trying to do a bunch of weighted hikes or hit the treadmill and crank it up as steep as it goes. I've also been focusing on strength and flexibility in my hips and ankles. Those are weak spots for me and the hips can trigger low back pain as well, so I'm doing what I can to turn those areas around.


Just like every year, I'm hoping to head to this year's hunt feeling the best I ever have. We'll see how that goes!

Today got up and drove to my cardiac doctors appointment... Walked from my truck to the building and rode the elevator up to the 3rd floor... The nurses had to hear about the snake bite and the doctor told me everything heart wise is ok and not to play with snakes anymore.. I then retraced my steps and when home and took a long nap... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

When I woke up I went out to the road and drug our empty trash containers back to where I took them from last night.. They were full last night... :train: :train: :upthumb: :upthumb:

I know my routine is noting exciting but at least I'm trying... :-D :-D

Boom, you are doing it all wrong. I just turn my dog out and watch her run. Much easier on my knees that way.
