WFH today, so I took off to The Big Top with the kids… Had to bribe Little Man with ice cream to get him to go with me and once the daughter heard that, she was ready to go too.
They wanted to do the workout with me when we got there and I told them that it would be fun, but it would be tough and it was going to make them want to quit, but that they should just power through. They got to the 4th item on the list before calling it a day and leaving me to finish the rest on my own.
- 10 dead lifts - 135#
- 20 thrusters - 20# db ea arm
- 30 kb swings - 53#

I was spent. I’m still spent almost two hours later. I need to eat something real quick and then take the kids out for their ice cream…
Before and after photos. Little Man is growing up!
Made it back to The Big Top after an amazing weekend at Point Lookout in Northport, Maine. The resort was awesome. The festivities, food, and everything included were top notch and nothing but the best. Hopefully the wife’s work will send us again next year!
So yesterday was a recovery from the great weekend and no gym time. Today, after Little Man got his braces we stopped at TBT before heading home.
The Bear: 5rds of 7 reps each, up in weight each rd, 1 min rest between rds.
- power cleans
- front squats
- push press
- back squats
- push press
Wanted to start light since we had to up the weight each round, but not sure if it was light enough because I could only go up by 5# each round…
75, 80, 85, 90, 95
Now enjoying the rest of this mid-week day off with the family. WFH tomorrow too, so no going to the office until Thursday for this guy!
Took yesterday off as a rest day. Been in a funk of exhaustion and crabbiness since yesterday too. Went to The Big Top tonight and it’s amazing how a great workout will change everything!
Tabata style (20/10):
- pull-ups (banded)
- oh sit-ups (35# plate)
- weighted lunges (45# plate)
- kb floor press (70#)
- bb squats (45# bar)
- kb halos (44#)
Felt really good while doing it…and I really suck at pull-ups. Like, completely awful at them and hate them. A.LOT. I put them in the workout because I hate them so much and I know I need to work on them. Doesn’t mean I can’t complain…
Sell unwanted stuff. These swap and sell pages are addicting. Sold a few things over the last week that we never used and turned it into some extra cash. Also finding some good deals on things we do need or use. And much less creepy than craigslist…
Who knew online yard sales were the way to go?
The daughter is off at the neighbor’s. The wife is off running. I am taking a mental health rest day because for some reason I’ve been irritable today. So I am watching tv with Little Man and just hangin’.
After a weekend of partying and shenanigans, it was time to get back to The Big Top. Tonight’s workout was picked out by the wife. I wasn’t really looking forward to it… There were some scary items on the list. But we did it.
30 reps each:
- double unders (60 singles)
- kb swing (53#)
- box jumps (24”)
- sit-up to stand-up w/ 40# slam ball
- slam ball (30#)
- jumping lunges
- oh sit-ups (25# plate)
- bb back squats (45#)
I was not looking forward to the sit-up to stand-up or the burpees…but they got done.
Home. Dinner is done. Now trying to relax and catch up on last night’s Dexter!
Bleck…. Multiple shenanigans happened this weekend. It was all a great time, but the scale definitely showed it.
Gain: 6! Yikes!
Oh well, I’m sure a lot of it is due to lack of water…or healthy choices… So back to the grind today.
Working from home today so I hit up The Big Top on my lunch break for a good midday workout.
Tabata style (20/10 x8):
- wall ball - 20#
- kb swings - 44#
- bench - 95#
Felt real good to get my workout in before eating lunch. Came home and showered…and my arms didn’t want to lift up very high, then ate lunch. Now back to work for the afternoon from my couch.
