5th of July, 2012 — Workout — Pullups, Squats, and Pushups

Starting things off with some Horizontal Pulls.

Raining again so I can’t write my thoughts … grrr!

POST WORKOUT THOUGHTS:

My left shoulder is definitely feeling the strain today! It doesn’t help that I worked out after we just had a softball game either. Not sure why its my left shoulder though, I suppose it could be from batting, or not giving myself enough rest time from my last workout?

I’m still finding it hard to struggle with the Squat routine. Even with the added weight they’re still cake. Maybe I’m actually that close to the Master Step of One Leg Squat! I’m hoping so.

It’s nice to see progress in the Pullup routines though. I’m trying to keep my hands wide to hit my lats more, but am finding it a bit difficult while using the suspended rings. Either way, I love doing them 🙂

Was going to do the HSPU routine this evening, but as I mentioned earlier my left shoulder was giving me a bit of caution. I think I’ll give it a few days to ‘heal’ up.

Diet’s not been the best the past week, and neither has the workouts. Holiday’s and the nice weather are an excellent test for me. I’m considering going basically vegetarian here for a while. Veggie’s have sufficient protein. I’m going to research it a bit more though before I jump on too hastily. Not sure how difficult it’s going to be to still have a mass gaining diet while not eating much meat. No way I can go full vegetarian though. I love my meats too much, but less of those red ones will give me much better health in the long run.

How’s your workouts been going? Leave me some comments on your struggles or achievements!

  1. first time ever seeing this page, found it reading ur comment at calisthenicsworks.wordpress, gonna jump into CC for some exercise change. I’ve also trying to cut meat completly, try some Quinoa for your amino acid needs.

    • Hey Renato,

      I appreciate your comments! You said you’re going to jump into CC for some change, what previous workouts have you been doing?

      Funny you should mention Quinoa, I actually just purchased some this weekend to give it a test run.

      Again, though, appreciate your time to comment, and hopefully browsing my blog will give you some pointers and / or keep you motivated!
