17th May, 2012 — Workout — Crow Stands & Straight Bridges

Starting things off with the Handstand Pushup series. Hopefully making it to the Crow Stands today, I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to get them, but for how long’s different.

I don’t really have a good way to time these, so I’m trying to count to 10 in my head. Not the most accurate or efficient way to do it, but its how it works for now. Next time I’ll set up my boxing round timer for 10 second increments. I didn’t put too much rest time between these sets, only enough for my right wrist to take a breather. Only thing bugging me with these so far. Also to note, I was trying to keep balanced, and have my feet off the tree as much as possible.


Starting with the Short Bridges. I’m not confident I can do three work sets of the Intermediate Standard yet, so my goal is still to do three work sets of the Beginner Standard. The Short Bridges are pretty easy, so I’m cutting my warmup with them. I don’t really want to do three sets of 50 on top of the already two sets of 25. I also am not taking much of a break between these Short Bridges in the warmup, as they don’t really bother me or make me tired.

Left shoulder is a little stiff going into the Straight Bridges. I’m taking my 120 second breaks in between work sets to stretch it out a little. I keep getting that weird numbing of my arm’s again … Anyone have any ideas as to why that happens?

BAM — 21 to finish it off.
