    Daily exercise

    Post your daily exercise here. Today I'm going walking with a group from our church. We meet at a local high school and walk around the track for an hour. It's good to get moving and even better to chat with those in the body.

    I walk a couple of miles at say 3.5 mph to and from work 5 days a week and something similar during the weekend. I do more strenous exercise about 3 times a week. Today I ran some 3-minute intervals at just under 8 mph. Then I did some squats to parallell with 80 and 130 pounds and then some pistol squats with a small dumbbell (much harder), then some squats with 80 pounds as a cool down. Then I did some one leg calf raises. Two days ago I did bench presses, hanging dips with a dumbbell, side raises, one arm rows, vertical rack chins with a dumbbell plus finger and hand exercises with a soft ball. I think that about sums up my general exercise routine.

    I work out at a Crossfit 'box'. Been doing this for over 2 months now. Every day is a different workout. This was one of the 'easier' ones. :)

    Today's workout was:

    Burgener Warm-up
    BURGENER WARM-UP:
    (this warmup is done with a long thin PVC pipe the size of a weightlifting bar for practicing the moves for weightlifting)
    1. Down and "Finish"
    2. Elbows High and Outside
    3. Muscle Snatch
    4. Snatch Lands at 2", 4", 6"
    5. Snatch Drops

    SKILL TRANSFER EXERCISES:
    1. Snatch Push Press
    2. Overhead Squat
    3. Heaving Snatch Balance
    4. Snatch Balance without a dip
    5. Snatch Balance with a dip

    These are done with weights:

    Clean Pull (2x3@ 70%,75%)
    Clean and Jerk (2x3 @ 70%, 75%)

    And this is the cardio workout. Some days weightlifting is incorporated into the cardio routine.

    Metcon (AMRAP - [As Many Reps As Possible] Rounds and Reps) You do as many rounds of these at many times as possible in 10 minutes. This sounds easy, but it ain't. :)

    10 minute AMRAP of:
    10 burpees
    20 wall-ball shots, 20lb/14lb

    So far Fuego has managed to work his entire body including his spinal erectors but not his back. Doing pullups with bands or barbell rows would fix that.

    Is there an allowance if a person is unable to do one of those exercises? Can you adjust, for example, front squat to a different form of squat? I have issues with front squats with my shoulder, but can do back squats more easily.

    You shouldn't attempt olympic weightlifting movements if you can't do a front squat, that is a core element. Though I can do a back squat with somewhere between 250 and 300 pounds, I feel uncomfortable with front squats and overhead squats with pretty much any weight.
    Doing the snatch or clean&jerk is therefore uncomfortable but doing a power clean without going down into the front squat works better.
