Lately I haven´t been posting that much and that’s because it haven´t been that much to post about looking at my life from a surf point of view. What´s been taken a lot of my time is work, school and training. Since I don’t want to stop blogging I have decided to change the orientation of the content that I am posting.
As I said working out have taken a lot of time. Before Erica and I went to central America last year I got sponsored at my gym. I spent a lot of time there before and after the trip, but in about 15 days that contract will run out. Since I am not getting an extended sponsorship I eater have to start paying again or quit. Since I have done more and more function and crossfitt training it got me thinking. It got me thinking about how much time people spending at the gym, how much time people spending preparing before the gym and how much time people spending to actually get to the gym. And what do we do at the gym? We are doing all these exercises in different machines that we are fighting for because of all the other people that want to do the same work out, in the same machine, at the same time. Why do we do all this? Why don’t we just do that good old Rocky Balboa training that is so inspiring for so many people and get us pumped before heading to the gym?
What I have decided is: to just do it. I am going to combine all the different sports that I have been practicing the last couple of years. I am going to take the best parts from every single sport and combine it to o “Swedish Rocky outdoor training program ” ;). It´s not going to be a fashion type of work out where you have to look good in front of all the other people at the gym. Its going to be dirty, cold and hard, just as working out should be in my opinion. I am going to let you guys follow my improvements via photos, video and and my opinion through my writing skills.
Just to let you guys now what I am starting with:
I am now 26 years old, weighing in at 83 kg, standing 181 cm tall. I am in fairly good shape, but I should probably lose a couple of kg if I switched out some of the pizza and beer for some milk and salad.
This is day one and this is were everything starts…
Day one: 10 km running in the snow
