8th of January, 2013 — Workout — Elevated Pushups ( Wide Grip & Close ), Shove Off’s, Military Presses ( Elevated feet ), Thumbs Up, Chair Dips

Hey o’ Convicts,

Ready for weeks Five & Six?! These next two weeks are going to be Supersets ( See HERE for description ). So today’s workout beat the hell out of my upper body. The Supersets are no freaking joke my friends. That little   explosion on the way back is no joke. Stay Strong  and keep at it, It will pay off!

How was your workout today?!

Pushups ( Elevated feet ) & Shove Off’s:

Oh HOT DAMN, these were underestimated in my mind before I started. Definitely going to get in an excellent workout today let me tell you. Thankfully there’s only two sets!

Some notes on these:

  1. The Pushups are Wide Grip
  2. There’s a three second pause at the bottom of Both exercises
  3. There’s a three second count on the way down on the Pushups
  4. There’s an explosive push back up on Both
  5. Shove Off height is ~ waist high

Set 1:

  • 5 Wide Grip Pushups
  • 7 Shove Off’s

Set 2:

  • 5 Wide Grip Pushups
  • 10 Shove Off’s

Military Press ( Elevated feet ) & Thumbs Up

Geesh the three seconds down then the pause for three seconds with the Military Presses are so hard to keep up the higher the reps go! Brutal workout today 🙂

One thing I had to pay attention to was my breathing during the Thumbs Up. It’s so easy to not breathe! I caught myself a few times, especially during the three second pause’s not breathing properly. DONT DO THAT!

Set 1:

  • 5 Military Presses
  • 10 Thumbs Up

Set 2:

  • 5 Military Presses
  • 11 Thumbs Up

Close Pushups ( Elevated feet ) & Dips ( Chair with legs bent )

As the title mentions, I did the Dips as a Chair Dip, and I had to bend my legs because my Triceps are shot already. I can’t believe how brutal this workout is for me today 🙂 Feels great, but I can’t wait to see what I get next time I do these, because I feel like this is kicking my ass today.

Set 1:

  • 5 Close Pushups
  • 7 Chair Dips

Set 2:

  • 5 Close Pushups
  • 7 Chair Dips

10th of September, 2012 — Workout — Half Pullups & Half One-Leg Squats

Decided to try to shoot for 10 rounds of the Jump Rope today, but my right wrist just couldnt take it today. I started getting sloppy and kept catching my feet. Eight rounds is pretty solid amount though I’d have to say. Was a bit windy today, which adds to the fun of jumping rope 🙂

Had to cut the Squats down a set, my right knee is still hurting a bit. The bruise goes from the middle of my shin to the middle of my quad. Pretty gnarly colors and such. I’m thinking another week or two and I’ll be rockin’ it at 100%. I’d say I’m about 90% at the moment, also noticed some slight abdominal pains while doing the Close Squats. Kind of weird because my abs are not used much – more for stabilizing I’d say.

Either way, was nice to get a good set of Pullups in. I did a quick measurement of my chest today, and my Lat’s must be getting bigger because they’ve gone up a little bit from my last measurement. Was a bit bummed I couldnt get 12 reps for both sets of the warmup ( Wide Grip Pullups ) today though. I figured it was going to be a bit of a struggle after that first set. I was honestly surprised to be able to get the full 12 reps for all three working sets of Half Pullups. Nice feeling. I still want to get the timing down a bit better with the Half Pullups, because I feel as though I’m rushing them a bit to get all 12 reps. Sometimes my body sway’s a bit too much for my liking. Alas, it’s my first day back to them in over a week though, so I can’t be complaining too much!

Happy overall with what was accomplished today – with the circumstances. Man I missed working out though! I was going crazy, my poor girlfriend had to listen to me whining about it – true to her nature, she said she had “ZERO pity” on me, which is understandable. A very valuable lesson I learned this year.

What was your favorite part of your workout today?
Do you feel as though you pushed yourself hard enough?
