WOD 12.01.09

Tennis Anyone?

Quads and hams were a bit tight from yesterday’s WOD

Upped my dosage of omega 3’s today, plus vitamin A & D…simply by taking 3 Tbls CLO. <Note: Now that we are not getting nearly as much sun as we were during the warmer months, it’s a good idea to take CLO instead of Fish Oil.  CLO naturally contains a healthy dose the ‘sunshine vitamin’ (D3), and A.

WOD: TENNIS with a strong college player, and friend Josh Roer (Bowdoin University).

  1. Light warm-up cooperative rally (10 min)
  2. Baseline games/1st to 11 points wins, 2 rounds (20 min)
  3. Serve and Return practice points (20 min)
  4. 1 Set (45 min)
  5. Tiebreakers, 2 rounds (15 min)

Total Workout Time: 1 hour 50 minutes

Felt great to hit some balls today, and see how the off-court training is working.  Adjusted to more narrow stance on my serve, and noticed a better spring as I come off the ground.  Wrist strength + ROM has improved (pronation/supination) which is allowing for more spin.

Finally, I just want to remind you that one of the greatest reasons for a resistance training program, is that it limits your risk of injury.  Strength training builds healthy muscles AND bones.  It allows you to enjoy the activities you take pleasure in!

What is your favorite activity? sport? Why do you train?

Be Well,

-Max
