Breathing and Exercise

I'm looking at a variety of training ideas. Breathing is important and I'm trying to include it into my training consciously. Hopefully this will add to my workout.

I tried 10 rounds of the "Box Breathing" and it lowered my blood pressure by several points. I'll continue to test this out for a month or so. I'm going to also look at sports visualization and more moving forward.

ABOUT THE BLOG: This blog started years ago to talk about self-care and weightlifting. It stopped for a few years. It was restarted when I was told that I was diabetic. I had an A1C of 9.3. A1C is an estimate of your blood sugar level over the last 3 months and 6.5 is pre-diabetic, and usually over 7 is considered diabetic. In March I was re-tested and my A1C was 5.0. That's below pre-diabetic (so, essentially non-diabetic). It was nice to have my doctor say, "you used to be diabetic." I'm still working on improving my insulin sensitivity and not thinking I&…

November 8, 2018

So I am lifting two days this week because I'm taking the car to get worked on Saturday morning. The goal is to lift 3 days a week. However, I'm doing full body workouts just in case stuff like this comes up. I'm doing HIIT with the sprints set at 3 for now. 5 sprints total. Using an exercise bike. Sometimes I think about doing the longer full body HIIT workout, also called the 7 minute workout.

Tuesday and Thursday I lifted

Squat set 1, 5x135, set 2-5 5x180 Bench set 1, 5x135, set 2-5 5x155 Deadlifts set 1, 5x135, set 2-5 5x200
I weighed in at 157.5 today which wasn't inspiring. Going to a family event over the weekend set me back a bit. I'll keep trying to get into the 148lb category for December 1
Slowly I'm developing an interest in some of my mental and emotional muscles.
I'm planning on doing HIIT tomorrow and I can do a short workout early on Saturday, or maybe the car will be done fast enough to get to the gym afterwards.
