14th of July, 2012 — Workout — HSPU, Bridge’s, & Squats

Starting things off with some Crow Stands.

Holy cow those Uneven Squats are pretty hard! No joking with those things. It’s nice to feel the burn on my thighs. I’m a bit cautious with my Right leg though because of the Knee.

I seem to be a bit more flexible in my left ankle as well. Sometimes I will lose my balance doing these with my Right foot because the ankle is much tighter.

By the third set things were golden with those Uneven Squats. I stretched the right ankle and calf muscles before the last one, and it seemed to make it much easier. Everything went smoothly with that one, and I was able to crank out eight reps for each leg. Not too shabby for never attempting them before I feel.

For some cardio work today I jumped rope for four, three-minute rounds. Haven’t done much cardio related activities and I get winded a lot easier than I should I’ve noticed.

Nice to see my Angled Bridge rep’s increasing. I can feel my spine getting more and more flexible every time I do a Bridge exercise. I need to get a bit more consistent with them though to really see the progress.
