3rd of February, 2014 — Workout — Decline Wide Grip Pushups & Shove Off’s, Military Press & Thumbs Up, Elevated Close Grip Pushups & Dips

It’s time to crank out this snowy workout, dont you think?

Today’s workout will be Supersets! 

Yeah I never bothered updating the formatting on the last workout, mainly because I think I’m the only one who read this anyway 🙂 haha It’s all good, it’s mainly an outlet for my thoughts and log’s anyway. I’m just glad that you fine convicts are able to chime in on occasion.

Regardless, hope you’re all having a kick A workout and I wish you could join me one day 🙂

STAY STRONG!

24th of January, 2014 — Workout — Wide Grip Pushups, Military Press, Close Grip Pushups, Dips, Leg Lifts, Supermans, Bicycles, & Hyperextensions

CONVICTS!

Going to crank out two days worth of work today BECAUSE I CAN! I also took the full package of pre-workout that came as a sample with my protein powder. Didnt realize it was two servings … whatever. Just super itchy today!

Was a fantastic workout today, I felt like one day a week for the pushing exercises was a bit weak, especially because ten reps isnt really a challenge … I’m psyched for the Power Block next week. I’ll be even more psyched once I can get my RING ROUTINE BACk! ( Yes I’m still a bit pumped up even after my workout )

I will say that those Hyperextensions at the end were rough. I had to dig down and persevere to get those last three reps, with good form of course.

How’re you all doing with your workouts? Until next time convicts!

STAY STRONG!

20th of January, 2014 — Workout — Decline Wide Grip Pushups, Military Presses, Close Grip Pushups, Chair Dips

CONVICTS!

Week two of the Strength Block and rocking it hard. If I hadnt been so excited to workout I would’ve used my sandbag during most of them so that I could increase the difficulty. Ten reps was far too easy for strength training … Ah well I’ll be back to my rings routine soon enough and I CANT WAIT!

Oh one note, I was able to get 30 Dips again so that was a nice accomplishment. A bit rough on the last few though 😉

Time for din din though so this is all you baby birds get today.

STAY STRONG!

Well well well ….

If it isn’t my favorite convicts. How’re you fellow calis enthusiasts doing today? I know you’re doing well, its just a formality. It’s bittersweet being back, had a nice little trip down to the island that is long for the weekend. I had a good time, but I miss you all … really I did! OK, so I didnt really miss you all that bad, but I sure as hell did miss posting on what was accomplished.

I’m a bit disappointed on how my measurements came out, but I know that they’ll get back to where they once were. I also miss my ring workout so bad ( I think I’ve mentioned this in every post haha ).

Anyway, onto Block II – Strength block. Incase you missed the previous posts I’m doing the Intermediate routine from You Are Your Own Gym again until I can figure out  a way to get back to my Overcoming Gravity routine. I’ve heard rumors that author Steven Low is almost finished with his Overcoming Gravity II.

I’ve some final touches on my program to work out, so I’ll leave you with that.

STAY STRONG!

P.s. The strength block is Interval training.

7th of January, 2014 — Workout — Alternating Side Lunges / One-Leg Romanian Deadlifts, Sandbag Squats & Russian Twists

Convicts!

How’re y’all doing today? A nice balmy high of seven degrees today, what an excellent temperature to go outdoors and get all sweaty right? HA!

Yeah … I’m absolutely staying inside for the ol’ workout today – I know, go figure right? It’ll be a good one regardless. My damn’d hammy’s are still sore from those One-Leg Romanian Deadlifts from last time still. Going to need to warm them up a bit. I foam rolled them out last night which felt PAINFUL awesome!

I miss my rings =(

I think that my ol’ Dip / Pullup station that I had at my old apartment will fit in this one, but there’s basically no room unfortunately. It’s fairly cramped at the moment, but thankfully I dont have a lease at this place, I’m just chillin here ’til I can find my own. Moving sucks, especially in the middle of the winter, and especially for the third time in six months.
