Lunges w/35lb dumbells 3 sets of 20

Calf Raises sitting (machine): chart said actual weight lifted 12 x(344, 370, 396)
Given your weight those are pretty impressive front squat numbers.

Thanks for the compliments, except for calling me "old.". My next workout I plan to work on cardio and speed. Something more Crossfit inspired and hopefully outside weather permitting at the soccer field. Maybe sprints and burpees. I'm trying to prepare for an Outdoor Soccer season this summer. Can anyone suggest a good leg speed exercise?

I'm 27. the best thing for my first step in soccer is to do heavy back squats and high "36" box jumps. I setup 3 in a row, low, high, low. then jump through it.

I also do one legged pistol squats which helps balance.

Re: the small meals, the only 'science' i've seen behind it is that smaller meals may make you feel fuller before big meals thus eating less. I tend to just work all day and eat my limit for 3 meals. I don't overeat and never have a problem with energy.

I'd love to do high box jumps but my ceiling is only 8'. Maybe I'll figure out how to do them outside soon.

Yesterday I had a good day, felt fresh decided to go for some PR's.

Took a brutal cheap shot last night playing hockey. I hit a guy shoulder on shoulder behind the net, goalie covers puck, I'm standing beside the boards watching the guy stand back up and another guy charges me from behind and smashes my head into the glass.

I was out cold, staggered to the dressing room. Dizziness, sensitive to lights, slurred speech, short term memory loss. Brutal headache today. FML

Getting back into hard training starting today. Finally recovered from a knee injury. Going to be training for ball hockey provincials and Tough Mudder. I only have 2 weeks till ball hockey, so I need to focus on cardio. Tough Mudder is in a month. Looking forward to getting back to weight training, hoping my knee stays good.

That's it? If someone ever hit me that hard, I'd be planning super villain-type revenge on him.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Ball Hockey tourney this weekend, top 4 teams make nationals. We have a decent shot at it, I would rate us at about #5-6 in the tournament of 40 teams. We have been practicing 3 times a week for a month now. I haven't been to the gym for a month because my knee is recovering from patella tendinitis but it's about 95% right now. I can finally push off without pain. I have been using a patella stabilizer and it helps a lot.
No idea where the injury came from, my sports physiotherapist suggests I overdid it when I was squatting heavy every other day combined with 5-6 sports a week.
After this tourney I'm training for tough mudder in 2 weeks and will start squatting again focusing on mobility and flexibility before I throw heavy weight on.
What are your guys opinions on ass to grass squats? I've heard differing opinions.

I ran the Tough Mudder on Saturday in Whistler, B.C. It was 12 miles of marching through mud and obstacles. I've never been as stiff as I was Saturday night but it was a good time. Will do it next year for sure.

A lot of my friends who don't even lift or cardio have signed up for it. It's like the popular thing to do now...
