ChaLean Extreme - Break Week - Sunday

The dreaded weigh in. My rings have been snug so I think I'm retaining water. Whatever. I weighed in at 140, down 1.5 from last week.

Not much to say today. I rearranged and cleaned my living room today. More cleaning tomorrow. I've spent time looking into the 300 Spartan workouts. There are quite a few variations. The "300" is an endurance challenge that some of the actors from the movie 300 did after their training. It's pretty interesting stuff. I'm thinking of working my way up to the real 300 by starting with a 100. The numbers stand for the number of reps you do in the workout. You do all the exercises one after another. Here's the original 300:

Pullups (25)
Deadlift with 135lbs (50)
Push ups (50)
24-inch box jumps (50)
Floor wipers (50)
One arm clean n press with 36lbs kettlebell (50)
Pull ups (25)

Of course, I can't do this, not even subbing inverted rows for the pull ups. But I could easily do some of the beginner variations.

This guy has a bunch of videos with different variations.

So, I'm thinking, once a month do one of these. I'll figure out the progression of easiest to hardest (for myself) and start with the easiest one.

9:40 AM - scrambled eggs w/ onion, green pepper & salsa, homemade pork sausage (using the lean parts of a pork shoulder), toast, coffee w/ half-and-half & Splenda

1:30 PM - apple w/ peanut butter

3:35 PM - carrots

4:35 PM - corn, grilled hamburger w/ cheese, ketchup, mustard, onion, tomato & pickles on homemade whole wheat bun

6:45 PM - burger w/ ketchup & mustard on homemade whole wheat bun
