    Last weekís Week 8 Day 5 combined the shoulder work and cardio.

    This morning I did Week 9 Day 1:

    Same as week 8 with ďthe 11sĒ deadlifts and pull ups followed by weighted step ups, DB squat cleans, bent over rows, and burpees.

    Felt really good this morning.

    Glad to see cleans being integrated into this. Im still in week 5 now. Prior programming i was doing utilized lots of cleans. Took me a long time to get my form worked out. Now it has been two months since i have been doing any cleans at all. Great exercise and im glad to see it.

    Week 9 Day 2:

    Back to the Ibex.

    Quick-and-dirty quad burner.

    Building on yesterdayís workout it is pretty challenging. Gonna be pretty sore going into squats tomorrow!

    That said, my recovery improvement is pretty dramatic over the first half of the program.

    Got the burpee torture today. 45 mins AMRAP - 15 cals, 15 Thrusters-AS, 4 pull-ups 10 burpees. This was tough the last couple of times. I expect nothing less today!

    Actually wishing my elk hunt date would arrive. I could use something easy. lol

    Rokstaff Takes on MTNTOUGH Backcountry Fitness Program

    So Iíve gotten pretty off track with going to AK for sheep season and havenít posted in this thread for a while. Iíve been trying to get back on track with my workouts while also trying to get out during archery season as much as possible.

    I finished weeks 3 & 4, and did w5d1 today. I was able to increase weight today from last week and felt good. Last week when I did the workout that khnc mentioned in his previous post from week 4, that was one of the hardest workouts Iíve done in a long time. It just flat out wore me out. You do as many circuits as possible within 45 minutes. I got 9 done. Iíd like to think I couldíve gotten a 10th in if other people in the gym that morning didnít keep taking my machines so that I had to run to different floors to find what I needed, but I honestly am not sure.

    Iíve noticed that almost all the mtntough workouts are unique and difficult in their own way; there are no easy days, just different days. Each day is difficult in its own way for whatever muscle groups youíre working. I think it really stretches you not only physically, but mentally too. That workout I mentioned from w4 reminded me a lot of packing out sheep till 5 am in the sense that I had to just keep grinding and not let myself give up. That workout helped me probably just as much or maybe more mentally than physically. If youíre on the fence about mtntough, I would recommend trying it out. Itíll whip you into good physical AND mental shape.

    hey man, thanks for asking. Looks like a few of the staff will be doing this post season program. We'll start a new thread in this forum and put up a link to it in this forum once we get rolling. Watch for it.
