Hey everyone lets see what your Weekly Workout Schedules are in the off season. It would be neat to see what everyone does and maybe get some other ideas to change up the schedules.

I'm down 15lbs. Mostly rite now for me is diet. I've realized that I've gained weight just because I've become lazy. It's so easy just to eat whatever good or bad and not think twice about it. For me I have to make a conscious decision to not eat crap! I would say that if I had an addiction it would be food. So I've made the choice to break my habit and eat better. My next challenge will be a workout that will get myself into great shape and toned up. If I draw tags this year that will be a great motivator to get it done.

I hear ya on that one. I've spent more than one night in a layout blind. One time on Saginaw Bay we slept in our duck boat so as to have the spot we wanted. Crazy! But wait, wouldn't that be like "Coyoting Out" for Waterfowl! LMAO.

I wake up and hammer my workout everday at 5:45 am. I hit chest and tris on mondays , run 4-5 miles on tuesday, leg day on wednesday, run 4-5 miles on thursday, back on friday. On the weekend I will try to either get in another run or do shoulders depending on what my body is telling me. For lifting I do not focus on weight but rather high reps with lighter weight which helps to build more lean and coordinated muscle that is useful in the field. I almost never do isolation lifts but rather focus on compound lifts which are much more useful in the mountains. As you can see I do a lot of work on legs because they are the foundation of being a mountain hunter. For diet instead of limiting my intake of food I focus on eating lots of healthy food items because I am supposed to be eating and average of 3100 calories a day so I have to eat a lot of healthy food to meet that minimum. I dont have any weight to lose so I need to meet that calorie mark so my body can build strength and endurance. Keep Hammering!

Well, the goal for me, since October’s elk season in Idaho at least was to make going up hill more of a strength than a weakness. I eat a lot better now mostly a lot of chicken salads with balsamic vinegar and olive oil for main meals and nuts, almonds and cashews every hour for snacks and protein heavy on the weekends is typical for me. I’ve cut out processed sugar and processed foods. I do also have a glass of Wilderness Athlete Hydrate & Recover in the mornings. I’ve dropped about 40 pounds since October now. I'm finding what we eat is so much more important than I had thought or at least is seems so to me and my energy output.

I’m 53 now and not so much a youngster anymore so I worry more about my knees getting to pounded so I don’t run but try and walk at a brisk pace keeping my heart rate above 130 or higher. Below is what I’m doing each morning during the work week.

Revolving stairs 20 min and then treadmill at 15% grade for .5 hour. On friday’s leg workout day, I strap on a weighted pack with 40 pounds. I also walk 2.5 miles at lunch. I alternate each day and work out chest, back, arms, shoulder and back exercises and legs and stretching before doing them after the stair and treadmill.

I did a 5K race fundraiser this past Saturday with Valley Christian High School at Lake Cunningham Park to help raise awareness and funds to meet the education needs of at risk children in Silicon Valley and beyond. I don't typically run. I'm trying not to pound my knees so I can be backpacking up in the mountains longer but I wanted to see how I'd time on this 5K. What do you know, I took second place in the race! In my age bracket, 50-59 that is. I did run the 5K in 00:17:34 at a 00:05:39 mile pace which was better than I thought I'd do. God is good!

If this old guy can getting better results, anyone can. Our bodies seem to wear out faster than our minds do but by doing our part the best we can to get in shape it surly has to help. I’m not sucking air or running out of steam nearly as much now when going uphill at least these days.

Im having a heck of a time getting motivated. With the new baby and working 50 hours a week. I cant seem to get up early and do it because I don't want to wake the baby up. I am dog ass tired after framing all day. I know these are all excuses. I have let my self go and put back on 30lbs. I am building motivation but it is slow. I need to get going. You guys are my motivation.

Tuesday no workout. When I get home on tuesdays I shoot my bow for 1- 2 hours taking my time. I start at 40yds and shoot back to 80yds. I don't shoot a bunch of arrows at each distance but I am striving for accuracy. I really like shooting longer distances and many times I will start at 80 then move to shorter distances. I would never take a 80yd shot but shooting at those distances really make 50 and under feel like a chip shot.
