One-Arm Pushup Progression: Elevated OAPU

Going to be lowering these suckers to a coffee table height – well I’m going to attempt it, if I can get at least five on each side then I’ll keep it, otherwise I’ll have to go out to the steps.

Well hot damn, I got it to the five rep attempt for the first set. I’m fairly positive the numbers will be much lower for the next two sets. It’s kosher though, I’ll keep improving and sooner than you think I’ll be moving to something even lower! Definitely brutal, and making me sweat like its my job today 🙂

Well, I’m pleasantly surprised that I was able to crank out another five reps for the second set as well – Although that last rep was a bit sketchy.

26th of March, 2013 — Workout — Boxing!

Whats up Convicts,

My favorite workout days, well the ones wears on the ol’ body the most. Got a gnarly cramp mid-way through the second round of working the Mitt’s. That was no fun to try and fight through for the third round! Had to persevere and not give up though. Training the mind to be strong is also super important.

STAY STRONG!

Hey o Convicts!!!

Should be a good workout today. I was definitely struggling towards the end of the day, and I almost convinced myself to not workout when I got home … Man glad I beat that lil whiner down! I feel so much better now that I’m all finished with today’s workout. I had to cut a few sets out to give my left shoulder a bit of extra healing, but overall another excellent workout 🙂 How’s your workout convict?!

Planche Progression: Tuck Planche

Nice! First set was able to balance it up for three and a half seconds. Let’s hope this trend can continue for the other two sets.
