I know it is, today was even worse. I am doing extra on the side though starting this weekend, but my program is based simply on trying to recover from the shit they give us. HIT weight lifting baby :rolleyes:
Position work for a while and then a core workout that was actually pretty good.
“Throwdown” leg raises with a partner.
-Left, Front, Right
Went through each twice for 1 minute.
1 minute front, 40 seconds left and 40 seconds right. Went through twice. This was after a partner medball workout with:
Twists (giving medball to parter and receiving) 2 x 1 minute each way.
Medball sit-ups 30 seconds
Partner medball throws: 15 each
Partner medball throws while shuffling: 15 each
Pretty dumb workout with some towels.
Partner resisted shrugs, curls, tricep extension, lateral raises, front raises, and rows. About a minute each and then the grand finale of this part of the workout:
Fingertip push-ups: 2 x 1 minute
More position work for an hour and a half or so and then:
15 x 40yards with 30 seconds between reps. 100% effort. Died.
Did get a 20 minute icebath afterwards, along with some stim on my hamstrings 3 hours later. Deep tissue massage tomorrow, probably more stim recovery for my hams and maybe hips. Tempo and more low intensity work as well.
10 x 100m barefoot tempo on a soft turf. Very slow, around 50% with 30 second recoveries. Low % because my hams were still destroyed from Monday.
About an hour later I had a deep tissue massage along with lots of stretching (AIS and other techniques) with a great therapist. Guy used to work with some pro vball players and really knew his stuff. Feel much better.
Hey davan nice to see you up and about. So your back from S.America? Maybe you should also make a journal on athletes.com too. We really miss your helpfulness at that site. Keep up the training and good luck with your football season
