    Nah, it's the ProHands GripMaster Hand Exerciser Heavy Tension model. Squeezy black thing with springs under each fingertip. Says it's nine pounds resistance per finger. Didn't mean to buy the heaviest resistance they had, but it was cheaper than the model next to it and I didn't actually look at the back of the package until I got home.

      Oh, ok, I got one of those in my Fit Beast hand exercise kit👍🏼😝😉

        Today is day 202. On the advice of the WTC doctor I have been looking into rhomboid rehab exercises- he thought the back pain I described sounded like a strained rhomboid muscle. Which means the cardio punch workout the other day was probably more than the recovering muscle expected- I shall use other cardio or HIIT workouts to avoid aggravating it further for a little while.

        classic warm up
        Pushing-the-wall calf stretches (15-30 sec) so my gastrocnemius and soleus muscles don't get any bright ideas about giving me pre bike event grief
        100 punches/day, 68/100
        80 overhead punches
        basic hands-in-front-of-you rhomboid stretches
        daily dare with ec: 60 sec nonstop calf raises
        more push-the-wall calf stretches
        power up day 2, but because I only have one resistance device, I did 40 seconds per hand, one hand at a time
        Epic Arms, 17.5 lbs per dumbbell
        More rhomboid stretches
        more push-the-walls

          Today is day 203

          classic warm up
          Pushing-the-wall calf stretches
          100 punches/day, 69/100
          rhomboid stretches (4x15 sec)
          90 overhead punches
          more push-the-walls
          daily dare with ec: 40 prone fly extensions in one go
          power grip day 3, 50 seconds per hand with the gripmaster heavy tension
          captain workout level 2, 1 min rest between sets. Funny thing. I never quite got the 'channel your frustration and rage' thing when I was doing either Punch Out! or Ten Thousand Punches. I never really got fast at punching, and I didn't quite get to the point of 'do as hard and as fast as you can' with HIIT in general. I did what I could at a viable pace. But between sets 2 and 3 I thought about the doctor on Monday, and about ny respiratory results, and I thought 'THIS IS FOR WHAT YOU DID TO MY LUNGS' and a little bit of 'THIS IS FOR THE CRAPPY BUILDING MATERIAL SAFETY STANDARDS OF THE 1970s THAT MEANT I HAD TO BREATHE IN ALL THE CRAP YOU LET LOOSE', and suddenly EVERY punch and virtually every knee strike was comimg out as fast and as hard and as viciously focused as my joints would allow...

          Excuse me. I have to go clean up. I'm sweating into my eyes.

                        Today is day 208. Running a little behind, but:


                        Classic warm up

                        100 punches/day, 74/100
                        100 overhead punches
                        30 standing side leg lifts, 15/leg (whatever I injured doing side kicks has not yet healed; even this hurt, so I am moving slowly)
                        50 front kicks, 25/leg, put the foot on the floor after each kick; this hurt in the same spot as the leg lifts, but it hurt less
                        3 min 12 seconds speedbag punches (2 punches left, 2 right, repeat, no pauses, no lowering arms). Used Riognach Robinson's Thus Spake Carly Rae for the beat.
                        power grip day 6, 60 sec overhead flex hold per arm. "Killer Queen" okay for this, not great, but okay.
                        epic arms, 17.5 lbs per arm, I am still being cautious about putting stress on the rhomboids
                        Speaking of which, 4 20-second rhomboid stretches
                        Also push-the-wall gastrocnemius and soleus stretches

                        Comment


                          Today is day 209.

                          2 minute warmup
                          100 punches/day, 75/100
                          100 overhead punches
                          40 side leg lifts, 2 sets 10/each leg
                          50 front kicks, 25/leg
                          2:55 speedbag punches because that is all there is to Weird Al's "Perform This Way"
                          Power grip day 7, 1 min 10 sec clench unclench per arm
                          Captain workout, 1 min rest between sets, level 2
                          rhomboid stretches and wall pushers

                          Got to go wipe up now, sweating everywhere

                              Oog, I know that feeling. I buy sixty-count packages of facial cleansing wipes at TJ Maxx and use 'em on all the major sweat zones so I can go back to work after an exercise session.

                              That said, today is day 210. I have my first nighttime flying lesson tonight, so rather than something intense I'm just doing maintenance basics.

                              Classic warm up
                              100 punches/day, 76/100
                              100 overhead punches
                              50 side leg lifts, 25 lifts left, then 25 right
                              50 front kicks, 25/leg, day 3/100
                              3:14 speedbag punches; the music today was the PomDeter mashup "Call Me A Hole", which is Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and Nine Inch Nails' "Head Like A Hole"
                              daily dare w/ec, 3 min nonstop arm extensions
                              Power grip challenge day 8, 1 min 10 sec overhead flex hold per arm; the GripMaster is surprisingly challenging after about forty seconds
