    GG's P-Side Experiment - Mission: Obstacle Course

    So I started my new training program today.

    No more figure competition. No more super strict diet. No more impending sodium-load nightmares. And best of all (at least for me), no more parading around on a weekly basis in my underwear and silver high heels.

    Now it is all about getting myself primed and pumped to try my luck (and skill, and strength) in an obstacle course. I haven't picked one yet. I am just going to start training, working on all the things I wasn't working on before.

    Last week I had a taste of the stuff I'll be doing. One of the highlights of my workouts last week was rope pulls! I sat down and then lay down on a little rug (which I started calling my magic carpet until people didn't think it was funny anymore), and pulled myself across a large room, hand over hand. After doing it about six times with just my bodyweight, we added a 25lb plate and I did it again a few more times each way (sitting and laying).
    It was tough, and A BLAST.

    Today's (and for the next two weeks), my workout was a little different. Mostly bodyweight stuff, a lot of core and stabilization. Patrick's gonna jump in here and explain what I'm doing and why, in terms of the exercises.

    I also changed my diet around a bit. Not by much. Added a few calories, reduced the protein a bit, added some more fats...

    without further ado...

    Best of luck Ivy. IMO obstacle course training beats the hell out of doing a figure comp.

    It does look like fun but really hard. I agree with Aggie! Good luck Ivy, you'll do great.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    nd best of all (at least for me), no more parading around on a weekly basis in my underwear and silver high heels.
    liar.

    Patrick's gonna jump in here and explain what I'm doing and why, in terms of the exercises.
    I'll give ya all the blow by blow of the program and when we changes things and why just so you can see how I will periodize her. This first mesocycle will begin with lots of stabalization work. I would like it to last 2-3 weeks. This first week is very low intensity and we are trying to really control rep tempo. I do this to (1) give her some time off from pushing heavy weight (since that is what she was doing before) and (2) to help work on core and joint stabalization. the slower tempo reps on the eccentric and static contractions allows you to really concentrate on stabalizing your core and the joint(s) you are working at. This is not only beneficial since it allows your body some recovery time between heavy phases of lifting but it also allows you to work on weaknesses (and we all have them. just ask her how hard it was to keep from falling over on those DB split squats by the end of the circut.). Also, you will see that there is reactive training. Obsactle courses are very athletic so GG will be doing plyo's. But, before just jumping into a ploymetric routine she needs to learn how to land and deal with reactive force so she can (1) prevent injury, (2) learn to apply force maximally and (3) learn to absorb and then react to force properly to be as quick as possible. So the squat jump to stabalizatin isn't even really jumping training as much as it is landing training. Since the intensity is so low we will throw everything in a circut until she progresses to more of a solid strength phase and then power phase and then a conjugate program combining all of the three workouts (after the strength and power phse she will go back to a small cycle of stabalization training before moving to conjugate training) as well as including event lifting for her specific contest.

    Thanks chick! I'm excited about this, partly because it is FUN for me, as opposed to wearing bikinis and high heels, and partly because I have absolutely no idea what to expect as my workouts progress. This is something I've never done. It's a new challange both physically and mentally. I'm all over it.

    Nah. I didn't. As of this saturday that just passed, I would have been five weeks out. I am still in shape that if I continue with my cut and do the sodium/water stuff I'd be in good enough condition to compete but I just don't care and don't want to go through it if i don't really care.

    Thanks Yan! Hey when am I meeting you, man?? Are you going to p's show in two weeks?

    Jodi, to tell you the truth, it is the most fun i've had in the gym in a LONG time.

    Let me just say that I need more work on this than I thought. I was all like, "please. I have great stabilization. I have a strong-as-hell core. I don't need this mesocycle-whatzit..." well... i have to eat my words. I need it.

    Like p said, about an hour including warm up, stretching, cool down, etc.

    Me, no. P in two weeks. I couldn't take it. It's hard to do something when your heart is not in it. I hate to quit mid-way through something, but sometimes the destination just isn't worth the journey, no offense to those who are passionate about bb'ing.
