Well, got in another back and Bicep workout. I am working on upping the step count and intensity at the gym. The ankle is holding up good, only tender in a few spots and all but one bump of swelling is gone. The prescribed 3 weeks of recovery seems to be just about right and i was religious about ice and rest the first two weeks. Hoping the pattern holds.

Lots of loaded lunges and stepups yesterday in a Heavy Pack 2.0 workout. Today was full body strength training. Started with some mobility work to warm up. Then ass to grass lunges, rack pulls 5x5 - 325#, bench, pullups.... Tomorrow will be Knees Over Toes stuff as a flush day. Friday will be another HP20.

Next week, we'll keep rolling with the same through Thursday. Friday morning we'll get up early and head northwest to see if we can get into some elk Saturday and following.

I don't usually plug stuff, but I'm gonna plug MtnTough+. These folks are putting out the best fitness stuff I've seen, and I've seen a lot. Their app subscription service is worth every last penny to me. They are lots of workout routines that you can choose from (adding more all the time), and now they're adding a rehab program as well as a mobility program that you can do as needed or on a regular basis before/after your regular workouts. They're also about to roll out a daily workout deal that will give you a new workout every day going forward.

If you sign up with this link, I get a free month. Or you can just go to their website and skip my referral. Either way, if you're looking for some new fitness programming you really should give these folks a look. I'm beyond impressed and pleased with their stuff.

30 minutes on the treadmill this morning, back and biceps yesterday and Chest the day before.

My legs are still sore from my deer hunt, but will be back at it again soon. I might hit legs light with kettlebell swings tomorrow morning.
