Oh....the offseason - where do I begin?
So many Mock Drafts. So many free agent wish lists. So many salary cap projections. But....no real football!
Well, we do have the combine to look forward to this week, so there's a bonus!
In the offseason, there is plenty to talk about, but not actually a lot to accomplish. I have been on a health kick as of late, and am trying to stay motivated to work out during this most depressing New England winter we are having.
Now I have a couple problems: 1) I don't want to lift heavy weights anymore - just no reason for it. It was great when I was in my teens and twenties and was playing competitive sports, but I'm old now, and have no reason to be big and bulky. 2) I don't want to just run anymore. Frankly, I get bored with just running distances. I'm not a distance runner by nature, and I don't intend on competing in any marathons in the near future. 3) I feel creeks, aches and soreness from all the past injuries I have had. I need a good program that will increase flexibility, endurance and functional strength, without causing the aches and pains of traditional weight training.
So, what do I do?.....I turn to all my HogsHaven brothers and sisters to find out what your workout is. I've considered Crossfit, and I know my guy Philip Reynolds has told me I'd love it. I thought about taking up boxing, but I'm not sure I want to go into work with a busted nose and two black eyes. I've done circuit training before, but it's always better with a partner. I even work out with my team when we do summer conditioning, but that won't start until five months.
I don't really have anyone up here that I work out with(which may be an issue). My time tends to be a bit limited(which may be another). So, given my circumstances, what would be a good workout?
What do you guys and gals do to stay in shape these days?
