9th May, 2012 — Workout — Handstand Pushups & Bridges

Starting today’s workout off with some good ol’ Wall Headstands. Again I feel as though they’re a bit on the weaker side of the workouts, but they are the first step towards being able to do OneArm Handstand Pushups! With this round I tried to focus on keeping my balance, instead of just resting my heels on the wall – gives me something to do while I’m upside down for a minute, and it will help in the long run. I’m also trying to progress to the next step, so I added 10 seconds work set.

Next on the agenda for the day is the Bridge routine. Definitely seeing some improvement in these. As my previous post these were a bit rough even after the first warmup set. I feel as though my lower back is strengthening already, because I was able to crank through the warmup with no extended breaks. That little pause at the top add’s a little something extra!

Now onto the Straight Bridges. Last time, they put some funky strain on my shoulders the first few reps, so this time I made sure to warmup my shoulders before hand — definitely a noticeable difference this time around.

Heck yeah, feeling good today, those Straight Bridges stood no chance of getting me to quit today! How’s your workout today?
