9th of December, 2012 — Workout — Half Hand Stand Pushups & Angled Bridges

Shooting for the 30s Rest between sets again. Nice to see some rep increases again. I did fall on the second set, but I feel like I could’ve cranked out one – two more reps. They’re giving me a nice burn in my shoulders though!

Those Angled Bridges got me good this evening. I’m still not the biggest fan of doing them, but I was reading over Convict Conditioning again, and remembered the importance of strengthening the spine.

So as I mentioned in a prior post, I think I’m going to be starting up with You Are Your Own Gym for a month or two to break up the monotony and hit the muscles with some different routines / exercises. Hope you guys stayed strong this weekend!

5th of December, 2012 — Workout — Hand Stand Pushups & Angled Bridges

Starting things off with some good ol Crow Stands & Wall Headstands. Been a bit since I’ve done these guys.

I’m stepping back down to the Half Hand Stand Pushups as well for now. As per my previous post, taking this much time off has really killed any gains I made. A bit disappointing, but no worries. I’ll get them back.

Hot damn, only able to crank out seven on my first set =( Motivates me sooooo much. I hate regression a hell of a lot. Really gets the fire burning in me. What gets your fire going and motivates you?

Again for today’s workout I’m taking 30s breaks between sets.

3rd of October, 2012 — Workout — Half Hand Stand Pushup

Started things off by beating myself up with the Jump Rope, obviously not literally. I went with 10 rounds Jump Roping today, but I pushed myself very hard the entire time. It was excellent! I was super motivated to workout today, and was very happy that the rain held off. That’s why there was no warmup set today though, I didnt want to risk the rain.

It wasn’t as epic as I had hoped – rep wise – but

Sets 1-10: Jump Rope

  • 3 Min Jump Rope
