Rucking with Bolt and Chloe
It’s been a long while since I posted anything. I don’t have anyone to blame for the lack of posting but myself.
Since my last post in 2019, I’ve added another rucking dog to the mix. She’s a big, beautiful, black Newfoundland named Chloe. She loves rucking and has been consistently training with Bolt and I.
My strength and cardio training has been steady. I’ve changed up my patterns a number of times. Currently, doing HIIT style as follows: 15 deep chest push-ups using Fat Gripz, 6 pull-ups with expanded towel grip, 6 chin-ups with expanded towel grip, 6 dips regular grip, 6 elevated leg lifts, 200 concentrated no tension Systema punches on the heavy bag, and 10 minutes on the Concept 2 rowing machine. Repeat. Doing two sets like this then hit the sauna for approximately 25 minutes while I Pray the Rosary.
I’ve been averaging 2 HIIT workouts and 2 rucks a week. Not bad but not where I want to be. I’d like at least one more HIIT a week.
The killer in this workout is the sauna. It sucks the life out of you while at the same time giving it back. Sauna is truly amazing.
Unfortunately, I haven’t done much in the way of martial arts since my move to South Dakota. I miss it. It’s in my blood. South Florida was a breeding ground for excellent training.
