Hey o’ Convicts,

Damn. Been caught up in the craziness of life and havent been able to either get myself motivated, or on the days where I’m feeling it, I just can’t seem to find the motivation. I just ordered THESE badboys, and can’t wait to start incorporating them into my workouts. I feel like they’ll be a fantastic ally.

Planche Progression: Tuck Planche Pushups

Decided to nix the ol’ Tuck Planche’s and start cranking out the Pushup variation. It’s actually the first progress in the OG book, but I wanted to get the balance & strength aspect down a bit more before going full bore into these.

I think this move has paid off as I can keep the balance up now while doing the Tuck Planche Pushups.

21st of May, 2013 — Workout — Heavy Bag, Speed Bag, Shadow Box, Jump Rope

BAM! Punchy punchy today ladies n gents. I almost didnt make it down to the gym today again. Was insanely hot today, for me at least. Was rocking out around 91 when I got out of the gym and back to my car. I didnt honestly look at it before I went in today. Some pretty intense heavy weights there today. Glad I don’t have to take their punches!

As always with my boxing, things are three rounds, with one minute rest between each. Boy was it hot today too!

Kid had on a good shirt today that said ‘Hard Work Pays Off’ Nothing we dont already know, but it was a nice little reminder today as I was already struggling with making it down there.

Lever Progression’s: Advanced Tuck Back & Front Lever

Got a +2 on the second set of the Advanced Tuck Back Lever. Not bad Not bad. My landlord cut down most of the branches in my backyard unfortunately. I’m going to have to purchase some of those Olympic rings now. Its OK though as I’ve wanted them since the winter!

BAM +3 on the third set! I’ll take it 🙂

Can’t seem to progress past the seven seconds of the first set for the Advanced Tuck Front Lever’s … Suppose the second and third set weren’t too shabby. Got a few more seconds for each rep. That first one though, seems to get me every time. Could be my muscles are not quite ready for the strength requirements during the first set. It seems that the first set on each back & front was the lowest time.

Woot! Got to the magic number of 10 for the first set! Let’s see how many I lose on the next two 🙂 haha Progress is there at least!!!!!!!!

Man I don’t even care about the last set – and by ‘I don’t care’ I mean, I’ve progressed one rep for the first two sets so if I can break even on the last set, then it’s been a good day. One of the hottest day’s I’ve worked out in, in awhile. It’s freaking 83 out, I DON LIKE!!

Sandbag Leg Training: HILL SPRINTS!!!!!!

Brought these fun guys back in. I can already feel my hammies hurting. I also had the bright idea of doing five Walking Squats on each side every 50 paces on the way down the hill. I’m not sure what’s wrong with me. I always have to make things so much more harder! I remember thinking after my first run up, ‘hey, you know what would make this more fun … if I did Walking Squats on the way down! Go me.’

Set 1:

  • 352 Yards x 2

Set 2:

  • 352 Yards x 2
