28th of August, 2012 — Workout — Half One-Arm Pushups & Hanging Frog Raises

Worked out late this evening, so I didnt push myself as hard as I had wanted. Nonetheless, I still cranked out some decent numbers. I need to write out my thoughts again, but tonight wasn’t the time. It was basically pitch black out while I was doing my Jump Rope. Was actually pretty fun doing it like that, had no visual clues.

Well the lil whiner crept in, well, tried to creep in today during my workouts. I wasn’t really feeling up for it but knew it needed to be done.

I’m not really a big fan of these Half One-Leg Squats, but I’m not really the biggest fan of half rep’s on anything.

26th of August, 2012 — Workout — Wide Grip / Regular / Military / Planche Pushups & Hanging Frog Raises

Hey there folks,

Today’s workout was another good one. Wasn’t feeling up for working on the Pushup series today, so I just went with some of my old favorites.

Was stinking hot today doing the Jump Rope. I felt like I had sweat out five pounds by the time I had finished it all! I’m getting better at doing my double under’s and different patterns. I’m going to start working on the crossovers soon. I made my last 30s much more intense this time. I usually do the last 10s as fast as possible, but this time I started at the 30s mark and brought my knee’s up to waist height, as well as fast as possible. Was quite a change 🙂

As for the Leg Raise’s – the combo of not doing the abs on Friday, and the high knee raises with the jump rope, I found it a lot harder that it should’ve today. I still managed to crank out three sets of 12 reps with good form though, just had to fight it on the ending of the last two sets.

20th of August, 2012 — Workout — Pullups & Yoga

Hello all you convict’s, hope the motivation is as high as can be and you’re starting off your week right. I decided to do something a bit different today, and I swapped out my Squat routine for some Yoga.

I’ve done Yoga in the past when I was doing the p90X so I was familiar with the moves and such. Wasn’t too hard of a video, compared to the ol’ p90X days, but nonetheless, it was enjoyable. Something to mix it up, and its never bad to get a bit more flexible I’d say.

I will point out that my balance is far superior than when I had been doing it earlier. I’m thinking all those Uneven Squats really helped built my legs and balance like a champ.

When I was doing my Pullups – First set, I wasn’t positive I could get to the 12 reps that I had previously done. Those Wide Grip Pull’s really put a hurting on your Lat’s, which isn’t too bad because I want those to pop. Such a hard muscle to get huge and toned, but Wide Grip Pull’s are the best way to get that V for a back.

18th of August, 2012 — Workout — Pushups, HSPU, Leg Raises

Good Afternoon class, today’s lesson is going to be 1/2 One-Arm Pushups, Hanging Frog Raises, and I think I’m going to do some Half HSPU.

Starting things off with Jump Roping. Went and extra round today because I was really feeling the rhythm today.

I love the Leg Raises series, well the one’s where you’re hanging. I like having to keep my shoulders in the proper position while hanging.

Doing the 1/2 One-Arm Pushups are so hard! I got one more rep in on each arm the first set though, which is always nice. But I’m thinking these are going to be a slow progression! How bad A will it be though once I get to full One-Arm Pushups 🙂

The Leg Raises weren’t too much of a struggle today. I may have to get some weights, although the last three on the third set, did kind of get rough.

As for the HSPU’s it’s nice to actually start doing them, instead of just holding the Wall Handstand for so long. I’m hoping I’ll be able to do them without a wall soon, the balance seems to get better each time, so I’m fairly positive they will.

My shoulders are for sure getting a workout today. Feels good.

16th of August, 2012 — Workout — Pullups & Squats

Yeah man, I can finally get to my thoughts while working out again. It’s so much easier!

Starting things off with Jump Rope’s to get the shoulders loose and heart pumping. I’m unfortunately going to have to shorten things up a bit this evening though as I’ve some plans later.

OK everyone, that’s all for today. Not as many reps as usual, but it let me get more of a focus on form and keeping things consistent. Being able to get 12 reps of Half Pulls two times was pretty awesome as well 🙂 Next time I’m going to crank out three sets of it!

How was your workout today?!

14th of August, 2012 — Workout — Leg Raises & Pushups

Woot Woot, Finally got the internet at the new place. So tomorrow I’ll be able to write out my thoughts, in real-time, as I workout!

I will say, today I moved onto the 1/2 One-Arm Pushups – What a change in difficulty that was! I had to do them with my legs out wide as the straight leg version was BBBrutal. I don’t mind though, because it gives me a new challenge to conquer 🙂

What did you do today solider? Leave me some comments!
