I have really worked on my fitness these last couple of months. I started some new training methods and mixed up my old. I added more Tabata training. I felt that my performance had been slipping, so I worked on what I felt were my weak points.
I have been using the jump rope, airdyne and rower in conjunction with kettlebells. I go heavy one week and then take it down a few kilos. I have been making steady progress. It seems a lot slower than in the past. It could be that I am older, I am careful about my weight or both.

Take a hard look around, be thankful for we do have, let the negative go. It is never too late for a course correction with the proper mindset. Life becomes our concentrated thoughts and actions.
My day started at 2:25 AM, I took the dogs out for a mile walk. Then took off for the gym. I started my warm-up at the gym at 4:45 AM, I start with a roll out. I use PVC pipe and a Lacrosse ball. Then I use a small kettlebell to do a warm-up flexibility routine.
After I am warmed up I do 10 Turkish get-ups and 100 swings with a kettlebell.
I did some extra deadlifts and snatches today. I did about 45 minutes of grappling and then 35 minutes of kickboxing sparring. Then some more kettlebell lifts.
In the afternoon, a kettlebell warm up and some heavy farmers carry.
