Training Board is…

Training Board is basically my gym notebook.

In theory, I can also blog in a more public spirited way about weightlifting, nutrition, weight loss, etc. But mostly, I just use this blog to track my workouts. And surfing.

If anything I have posted seems useful to you, let me know with a comment.

About Me

I'm a level I "sports performance certified" USAW coach, and I train, and work as a trainer at Asheville Strength and Conditioning, a great little gym here in Asheville, N.C.

I work with clients who want to get strong and fit, and am especially happy with helping older or detrained individuals.

My own training now is more focused on developing strength and using basic lifts and classic strength and conditioning techniques. A lot of the older portions of this blog deal with CrossFit and reflect my journey into fitness self-awareness. I first discovered CrossFit, back in late 2008. I learned a lot from CrossFit's "fitness as sport" model of training -- and benefited tremendously from training with my friends at CrossFit Asheville -- and furthermore I must credit my interest in CrossFit for opening my eyes to the larger world of training for strength athletics, Olympic-style weightlifting, powerlifting, and other arcane approaches to moving the Iron around.

wednesday one armin’

Still experimenting, Wednesday morning super early at ASC, with what I can and might do with my one arm. Not being able to lift or pull, carry or press with my left arm is strangely limiting.

Week I, Workout C

Warm up was 2 minutes on the Airdyne (using only right arm and pedaling of course), then 200 jump rope single unders. (By the way: I can indeed jump rope. But it hurts my wrist badly if I accidentally step on the rope. This has helped me not do so.) Shoulder mobility.

Single arm press: 1 x 12 x 25 / 2 x 10 x 35.

Single arm high-pull: 1 x 12 x 25 / 2 x 10 x 25. The first set kind of tweaked my shoulder (front delts) just a bit. Reducing volume helped.

Single arm deadlift: 3 x 10 x 60 lbs

Sled Pulls: 4 x 40 yards; (2 at +45 lbs; 2 at +90 lbs)
