Managment consultant. Focus on yoga, swimming (beginner, TI) and general training.

Training background:

  • Childhood: playground soccer, ice hockey, cross country skiing, swimming
  • 1973-1986 Basketball. Played in the Swedish junior national team and in the Swedish level 1 series (Brahe, IFK Linköping). Coached kids team, camp leader.
  • 1986-2000. Tried various martial arts, fencing, weightlifting, played in lower divisions of basketball. Constant problems with knees and back.
  • 2000-2007. Sporadic training due to becoming the father of twins, weightlifting, running, was only consistent with two years of Jodo. BMI peaked at 27 in 2002
  • 2007- . Mix of "everyday active" (bike to work, take the stairs instead of elevator,...), yoga, weightlifting (squats, deadlift, military press), functional training (e.g. MAQ, burpees) and swimming. Feels great.

comment Drills for sea swimming
So then it will be more like a pool with respect to the waves. Practise being able to see markers (see Johns answer), lots of drills for this on Youtube.

Perhaps you can add some structure to your answer. Right now it is hard to follow your argument.

comment Does not starting with the empty bar in StrongLifts 5x5 really hinder your ability to add weight every workout?
A bit off-topic but isn't time to kill off the linear progression myth, at least for longer timeperiods? Assuming it would work, someone that starts to deadlift with an empty bar (20kg) , trains three times a week, adds 2.5 kg every practice, beat Benedikt Magnussons WR in about 58 weeks, see wolframalpha.com/share/…

comment Water dripping from nose after swimming
Probably has to do with your timing of breathing, more info needed (swimstyle, pool vs open water). Maybe your question is about how to avoid it instead of worrying?

comment How to plan exercise for the day?
Based on your question, it seems like your goal is more like "general stay healthy" than a specific event or lose weight. Is that right?
