Combo training today...

Prep work - Z, ASLR, Brettzel
Bodyweight circuit of:
Hindu Push-ups x 10, Jump Squats x 10, Front+Back lunges x 10 r+l
x 5 circuits
32 kg Swings x 5 sets of 20 reps (one arm and or alternating)
ASLR to finish

Good training - the bodyweight circuit is to bring up some local muscular endurance and work on some movement skill etc...
Rest between the bodyweight circuits was sets of 10 heel raises (a special variety to be revealed soon) working on foot/arch and lower leg strength.

Interested to hear about these heel raises.

Me too!! I have been having a terrible time with foot/ arch pain coupled with lower/medial leg strains, (between the belly of the calve and my ankle), when i sprint too much, run stairs or inclines of anykind.

Carl,
Will get them up soon

Alan,
Ditto - but have you checked your ankle mobility and hip mobility?

alan said...

Brett,
Yeah, I am a little restricted in the ankle and started adding some stretches for the lower leg / calve. My hip mobility is good, I guess. I am a 3 on my ASLR and overhead squat.
