Round 4 Hybrid, Day 73: Shoulders & Arms


Back on Tuesday, I was genuinely excited to be doing the Shoulders and Arms routine. The reason: no legs are involved. The knee was feeling it even after my moderate plyo effort the prior day. So much so, that for … Continue reading

Round 4 Hybrid, Day 72: “Moderate” Interval Plyo


Yesterday I hobbled my way through Max Interval Plyo. Soon after I started, I found the insubordinate knee to be quite unhappy with plyometric moves. But, fool that I am, I pressed on. Sometimes I get to thinking that it’s … Continue reading

Round 4 Hybrid, Days 69, 70 & 71 : Legs & Back, ARX, Rest, More Tennis & Chest & Back


On Friday, I did Legs & Back and Ab Ripper X. I really took it easy on my knees. As in: no weights or 5lb weights, depending on the exercise. I suppose I could have done more, but I thought … Continue reading

Round 4 Hybrid, Day 67: Max Interval Circuit


Yoga was on tap for today, but I decided to defer it until later in the week to benefit my tennis schedule. Besides, I felt like sweating my way through Max Interval Circuit would help purge the achiness of yesterday’s … Continue reading

Round 4 Hybrid, Days 65 & 66


On Friday, I did Max Interval Plyo. I continued to take the Insanity routine slower than normal, in deference to my knee. And in so doing, I burned about 100 fewer calories than I typically do in this routine. Overall, … Continue reading

Round 4 Hybrid, Day 63: Rest, Rehab & Tennis


Yesterday I used my rest day to invest an hour on my knee rehab protocol. It’s interesting, because having gone through this boring routine multiple times now, I’ve discovered that I am quite literally, one weak-assed individual. All of the … Continue reading

Round 4 Hybrid, Day 61 Redux
