The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Nope, I've never owned a street bike, I've rode them before though. I've had a YZ450F for the past 2 years and a KX250 for 3 years before that so I'm pretty comfortable riding motorcycles in general right now.

    Yeah, I'm still a bit intimidated by the 600. My 450 is sitting at 52 HP at 229 lbs. so it's no slouch, be those 600s are scary. I'm going to try to find a fairly new one for around 6 or 7k.

    wooo. hell of a workout today. bench of 225 improved by 2.5 reps from last time, and did some running myself.

    bench - 135 warmup, 185x4 (wow), 205x8, 225x7.5+.5, 225x6+2... solid. i wanted to match my 225x5 of last week and beat it by 2.5. gettin back up there.

    GHR - 3x6

    push press - 135x5, 135x5, 155x5... very quick, snappy presses.

    front flys - 20 3x10... ive been doing them wrong all along. lowered weight and did em right and ouch.

    DB mili press - 35x8, 40 2x8

    DB OH tri extension - 55 3x12

    team workout : DB benches and CG pushups. ouch actually.

    ran by myself...

    10 yard sprint x10
    20 yard sprint x5
    40 yard sprint x1
    post-up rim touches each side x10
    running rim touches each side x5
    no start backboard slaps x10
    PHEW. i was gassed after this. very impressed with my jumps, though. any questions on what those are then ask, haha made up all those jumping names.

    Good benching the other day and not bad for an early session. 365 is definitely not weak as hell.

    awesome work on the rim touches. That sounds like an excellent idea in terms of cardio, but may be pretty high impact to do on a regular basis for me. What's your favorite cardio routine?

    kill - thanks dude. well the 365 was tough, and my PR is 385. so weak compared to that.

    lion - hell yeah it is. it was tough but ill have to get used to it with all the working im gonna do.

    coke - thanks dude.

    mick - thanks man they were crazy. you should try em, i've never done anything like it really. it was really fun and tiring as hell but i wanted to keep goin cuz it was fun ya know. hmm idk what my favorite is, probably somethin liek i did up there. the jumpings really fun. i dont mind stop and go stuff like pro agility but compared to straight sprints and jumps i'd rather take the latter.

    Cool bike, bro. I don't see that helmet on though, wtf? Oh and nice hawk, lol. I was wonderin when you were going to get around to doing that. You've been threatening it for awhile now. Bench work is gettin right back where it was it looks like. When you dumped the bike your first night riding it, was either of your parents all "oh see, I told you it was a bad idea..." or were they chill about it? Definitely new horizons, dude. Take care of yourself on that bike, seriously.
