This morning it poured rain. When you are snug in bed drinking your coffee leisurely going out in that mess may be are hard fight. Thankfully that is not a fight I had to fight today because tonight was my strength training night at Ronin Training.
I have to tell you I ❤ this gym and my 6pm crew. Strength training while HR training can be a little complicated and while I'm still base building strength training really might not be the best idea. Like I said I ❤ this place and did not want to give up strength I had built or miss out on fun workouts with vaults so I have to be careful. When at the gym I make sure to wear my HR monitor and try to keep a very careful eye on my numbers. It's funny because some of the things that I think are going to shoot my HR up there really don't but lifting heavy? That is out...for now. I will add a period of heavy lifting without HR monitor a bit later.
While in the base building stage I am keeping with light weights and stopping when I need to stop to let my HR come down. That means I am generally walking any laps around the building or have to set the bar down halfway through a front squats set. It can be annoying to have to stop but the coaches have been awesome and even with my trip to HawaiiI and working on my HR for a couple months I came back able to broad jump further, still do some pushups and maintained the black band in pull-ups.
