29th of November, 2012 — Workout — 1/2 One-Arm Pushups & Partial Straight Leg Raises

Man this cold’s not letting up! Feeling a bit better today though so I’ll crank out some reps. Geesh putting me out of commission for a while now. I’m also thinking about joining a local gym for the winter months. It’s hard to keep up the motivation when I get up its dark, and when I get home its dark! No fun, let me tell ya. There’s a good article here that talks about it –> http://www.eatmoveimprove.com/2012/04/integrating-bodyweight-and-barbell-training/

I think I may start up my mass gaining diet again as well. It didnt end as well as I had hoped last time, and who doesnt like to eat excessive amounts of food!

As for the workout today, damn, being absent for so many days definitely hurts the gains. Those 1/2 One-Arm Pushups were tough to crank out. Honestly it’s all a bit ‘harder.’ I like the burn, and the pump I get from it though. Reminds me why I’ve been doing them for so long. I’m considering changing up my Pushup routine a bit though. I never really wanted to get to the point of doing full-blown One-Arm Pushups. My goal is more to get to a full Planche Pushup. I think they’re manlier and much more bad A looking haha.

  1. Sounds like you need a week off to get rid off your cold. I know it’s hard to do sometimes but the rest always does me wonders, normally helps either the motivation too. If you interested in gaining mass why don’t you try mass made simple by dan john. It’s a good read but I haven’t had time to try the program myself, so can’t comment on it effectiveness 🙂

    • Hey o’

      Thanks for the info. I’ll have to check out that Mass Made Simple book. I’ve definitely taken some time off, and I’m rocking about 97% full recovery at the moment. Feels good to be able to push myself again.
