More mobility, spring in the step, more fluid, hard to explain. Probably that hip/ab connection that Dan referred to in the article and Nappy mentioned in his partial update.
More wind, way more wind, but I was fairly deconditioned when I started.
I certainly feel tighter, but don't have any hard data on that as far as fat loss.
Haven't weighed myself lately, but wouldn't be surprised if there's a decent drop.
Might as well lay out the plan going forward as I only have a week left on the 10K swing program and I jotted it down the other day. I'll do this for 12-16 weeks and then do something else for 5-8 weeks, then repeat.
Monday - Armour of War-type workout
Tues - YRG without the high tension stuff or some other kind of mobility
Wed - Hard conditioning (think high volume swings or LC, like 20 x 20 or 30 x 12 or 250 double LC (5 x 5,10,15,20) or hill sprints)
Thurs - YRG without the high tension stuff or some other kind of mobility
Fri - Armour of War-type workout
Sat/Sun - one day easy conditioning like a jog, bike ride or jump rope, might buy a kayak, the other is off
Every 4th week will dial back a bit.
3 day cycle in a 6 day period is based on a post by Ross E on FB around the New Year. Guy he knows who is in his 40s lifts one day, runs one day and hit's the heavy bag one day and goes through that again w/ Sunday's off. Ross said the dude's more fit than most his age or a good bit younger. Simple, effective, one might dare say, minimalist, huh?
Poke it full of holes. Goal is mainly to age gracefully and generally cover the three bases of fitness: mobility, strength, endurance in something resembling equal proportion. I'm 43 and could stand to lose some pounds/shed some fat.
