8th of December, 2012 — Workout — Full Body

Doing a bit of a circuit workout today. Taking 30s breaks between each set. I’ll be posting them in the order I complete them in. TIME ROCK THIS!

Beat the hell outta myself. Thought I’d be able to crank out a few more sets after my five minute break, but my body had other plans. That set of 1/2 One-Arm Pushups I think was what did me in. Holy hell they were taxing on the ol’ body.

Regardless, it was an excellent workout today. As I’ve mentioned in some prior posts I’m getting a bit worn out doing the same ol’ Convict Conditioning routine, and I’m thinking of going back to You Are Your Own Gym for a month. Just so I don’t get burnt out. It’s still all calisthenics, but a little variety in the routines is good for me. I really like doing the ladder. That will give me something to get planned out this weekend.

Hows your progress coming along Convicts?! Leave me some comments with an update.

3rd of December, 2012 — Workout — Full Pullups& 1/2 One-Leg Squats

Doing today’s workout with only 30 second rest between sets – Brutal! Geesh, not a big fan of seeing those low rep numbers, but I’m a huge fan of the burn. Some mental aspects of it that I enjoy as well – your arms are burning and beat to all hell, but you’ve to push through and persevere. Also, the workouts dont take nearly as long!

I’m sticking with the 1/2 One-Leg Squats for now as my right knee still doesn’t feel up to par. Not sure what I did to it? I know its not been the best thing in the world – I blame it on being a dumbass while younger and skateboarding / falling on it constantly without protection.

Hey o’

My right knee was bugging me today, so I decided to cut it back down to Close Squats there for the second set. My body’s still super sore from working out on Saturday – Sucks missing so many days! Getting back into the groove of it all though. Slowly but surely.

Leave some words of encouragement, or some accomplishments you guys are having – could use that right now.

Hey folks,

Miss you guys. Been dealing with a bit of an illness, and some personal shit for a few weeks. My workouts are going to be a bit lacking for the next couple weeks as a result, but I’m OK with that. I’ve missed it. Not going to be doing anything much as far as routine goes today, but just getting back into the swing of things.

Dont think I’ve forgotten about you guys! I know you’ve all stayed strong. Keep it up!

5th of November, 2012 — Workout — Full Pullups & Pistol Squats

Damn taking some time off hurt my reps a bit on my Full Pullups. Couldn’t even do a damn’d 12 rep set of them.  Crown and Ginger Ale are probably not the best beverage to keep me hydrated for working out.
