A new month and a new year means it's once again time to do 100 burpees as fast as I can.  Aside from that, the new year has gotten off to a quiet yet satisfying start.  I've been enjoying a deep dive into the content of The Wandering DMs YouTube channel.  I've bee...

I cut my thumb during some food prep this week.  No serious damage, fortunately, so I can't say that it had any significant impact on my workout performances.  I just felt like mentioning it.


Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Burpees

7 Bridges

Time = 8:00

I got things back into a more typical routine for this week.  Unfortunately, it seems like I tried to push myself more than I should've, so I ended up with strains in both legs' hamstrings.  Nothing too seriously, so I expect to bounce back fairly quickly, but I did pus...

Circumstances early in this week led me to favoring pass/fail workouts on the first few days, so I decided to just make that a thing for the week as a whole.  Unfortunately, I misread my log of last week's workouts while I was setting things up, so my rep targets for fi...

Between having a busy schedule at the start of the week, having some accumulated fatigue from full loads for the past three weeks, and having a bit of soreness in my right ankle at the tail end of the week, I went with only four workouts for this week.  The latter issue...

Flax seed eggs turned out to be a lie, at least in so far as using them as a direct substitute for regular eggs.  Yes, the flax seed meal does react in a roughly 1:3 mix with water to turn into a goopy sludge, but that sludge is really only responsible for replacing the...

To follow-up on my intro from last week, I went fully vegan for my breakfasts this week (which was just a matter of not having any hard-boiled eggs) and generally reduced my meat intake for other meals, too.  My workout performances were quite solid across the board, an...

I just watched an interesting movie on Netflix called The Game Changers, which was about the benefits of eating a plant-based diet.  I wasn't surprised by the basic idea that eating foods which the human body has adapted to handle is better than forcing it to deal with...
