23rd of September, 2013 — Workout — Jogging, or Yogging if you’re from Sweden

Whats happening today Convicts?!

Today was a good little recovery day, and why not some cardio? I know I don’t like it, so thats what makes it a wonderful day for it. Yeah, I know that doesnt make too much sense, but I’ve to lie to myself like that to get in the Cardio ūüôā ¬†Nonetheless, it was actually a pretty nice day for a Calisthenics trail run with some of my meetup crew. They’re getting better every time we go out, and that makes me feel good. I like to see people progressing, especially when they’ve perfect form!

I’m getting incredibly psyched up for my MovNat¬†training and certification course this weekend! It’s been months coming, and I look forward to all the new knowledge and cool training techniques I’ll be able to implement afterwards! I only wish some of you were here to crank out some Calisthenics with me.

STAY STRONG!

Running:

  • 3.84 Miles

22nd of September, 2013 — Workout — Wall Handstand, L-Sit, Tuck Planche Pushup, Advanced Tuck Back / Front Lever, L-Sit Dips on Rings, Archer Pullups, Alternating Back Lunges & Calf Raises

Whatup Convicts,

Got my order a bit messed up out there in the battle field. I completely forgot about the Planche Pushups!¬†I know, I couldnt believe it either, as thats my favorite one, and the one goal I want the most … geesh. Glad I log all this, or I think I would’ve forgotten about them today! My Handstands were kind of lacking today. I’m betting on it being how windy it was, and pretty chilly. My hands were pretty cold there in the beginning. It’s what I get though for wearing a sleeveless tee.

I’m considering incorporating some¬†Turkish Get Up’s¬†in as part of my routine, have any of you ever experienced them? I think the 70lbs in the sandbag will do the trick with getting me working out with those.

I just got this email with an invite to compete in this 1st annual Unconventional Training competition. ¬†It’s got some really awesome bits as far as the events are ( That’s what got me interested in the Turkish Get Ups ). It’s out in Cali, and its in two months … ¬†Some of the stuff I’ve never done before as they incorporate kettlebell’s and I don’t have one!

Let’s see, what else happened today. I do miss when I used to have my laptop right there with me so I could type out my thoughts in real time. I know I felt the Back Levers are getting better each time. My Left elbow joint was stressing a bit once I jumped back into my routines, but it’s gotten ¬†used to it again. I eased it in nicely though I think as I didnt want to injure myself.

Seeing those events for the competition gave me some good ideas as to what I could incorporate in my workouts. Not only for the variety, but some of the workouts were practical. I’m all about that! The one that sticks out ( Other than the¬†Turkish Get Ups¬†) is pulling 120 lbs 50 Feet. It just made me think of helping my dad when I was younger, dragging deer out of the woods. Good times ūüôā

HERE‘s a link to the challenge! Let me know what you guys think

19th of September, 2013 — Workout — Wall Handstand, L-Sit, Tuck Planche Pushup, Advanced Tuck Back / Front Lever, L-Sit Dips on Rings, Archer Pullups

Hey Convicts,

Whats happening my fellow calisthenics enthusiasts! Writing this up the day after as I had my plate full after the workout again. Life never seems to slow down, and there’s always something to do after you think you’re done! AAAAAAnyway, super psyched to get in a full week of my routine again though. It honestly may be two weeks at this point, I can’t remember when I switched up my days. Checked out the progressions for the Dips on the rings, as I was able to accomplish my goal of three sets of ten. Those L-Sit Dips¬†dont take prisoners let me tell you. A lot more difficult than I had anticipated, not only the strength requirement, but also the balance and technique. I probably couldve got more reps in, but I wanted my form to be 100% – as always. If you’ve been following me along for some time now, you know that I put form over everything else. There’s no reason to train it unless its perfect! It’ll not only waste your damnd time, but it will hinder your progress, and I dont have time for those shenanigans.

The¬†Archer Pullups¬†were also rough. As you can see my numbers dropped from the first time I did them, but that’s because I switched up the technique on them this time. The first time I did them, I was doing more of a Corn Cob Pullup without the push away from the bar at the end. I’d do the regular Pullup¬†and then shift my body from one side to the other, and then back down. Now I do the Pullup¬†and only put one arm out, lower myself and then do the same for the other arm. I feel as though this is more of what is being looked for. I also get to do ‘more’ Pullups using this technique.

Overall a great workout, but thats how I roll!

STAY STRONG!

Hey Convicts,

( Written 09/16 )Kind of disappointed. It was another not so great weather day out again, thankfully it wasn’t raining though. I had logged my workout on my cell on the WordPress app, but I must’ve forgot to save the draft. I lost all the reps and any notes I had taken. Ah well, the only thing I know for certain was that I was able to get all the dips, and only eight and a half on the last set of Pulls. I also had a good day on the Handstand¬†training, but again, I don’t remember!

You can’t change what you dont measure!

STAY STRONG!
