21st of January, 2014 — Workout — Bulgarian Split Squats, Side Lunges, Sandbag Squats & One-Leg Romanian Deadlifts!

TIME TO GET THOSE LEGS WORKING!

I know how much you all love leg day as much as I. It takes a certain person to be able to put themselves through all this much fun day to day though, and I know you all have the characteristics of champions.

I’m going to try and do all the workouts today with the sandbag on my shoulders ( Except the Side Lunges ) HERE WE GO!!

Holy hell, you wouldnt think 70lbs of sand would be able to wreck my legs like that. I almost fell over in the shower washing my legs! Damn … A good one today that’s for sure. Those Bulgarian Split Squats with the sand are no joke. I feel like they’re on par, or a bit harder than the Alternating Back Lunges. It’s almost the same motion, but something about the leg elevated seems to make it a bit harder. What do you think?

I love the feeling after doing a leg workout though. My entire body has this fantastic ache about it. With that, I’ll leave all you fine folks to finish up your workouts. I’ve a bison shoulder roast and mad veggies to consume 🙂

STAY STRONG!

How you doin’ 😉

Whats up you crazy Convicts! Surviving this excellent weather we’re having eh? With so many international viewers of this amazing blog, I’m sure some of you lucky ducks are! We got into the double digits today though, so that was pretty awesome. Almost busted out the shorts … haha I’m so funny right? I know, I know I am. How lucky of my girlfriend is to hear such amazing jokes all the time. I’d be jealous of her if I wasnt me … OK I’m getting out of control.

BACK TO BUSINESS

I’m going to whine about not having my rings and all that jazz setup again because, well, I miss using them. I feel like my progress is sinking with my Levers and my Planche Pushup progress. Not only feel, but I know its diminishing … I digress. I’ll get it back right? Right.

The You Are Your Own Gym is still an amazing program for what limited resources I’ve available to me right now so I’ll take it. Better something than nothing right? I like how ask these questions, and pppretty much nobody answers! I’m thankful for all of you followers though, and hopefully I inspire at least one of you occasionally to kick it up a notch, and get out there and progress towards your goals. I know this blog is mainly for my own ‘fun’, but I do appreciate you all. As you can see from my last post I had over 15k of you view this blog last year alone. Not bad for no promotion other than tagging my posts and search engines. I occasionally post something on a forum and link back to this, but overall you guys just seem to find me. It’s kind of like a small multinational little community we’ve got going on here. I’ve been toying with the idea of setting up the site for real, and opening up a forum. Would anyone be interested in that?

STAY STRONG!!

BA BA BA BAMMM!!!

Hot damn I forgot how much I love working out. I also forgot how much discipline that’s needed as well as perseverance. That was rough towards the last few minutes of the Sandbag Rows & Let Me In’s.

I’m definitely feeling better though so that also helps 🙂 I really need to find a way to get my Overcoming Gravity routine back. I’m a bit limited with the damn’d winter killing all my good tree spots. I RRRRRRRRReally cant bring myself to get a gym membership just so I can do my Calisthenics & Rings workouts haha. Hmmm.. maybe I can find a gymnastics gym around here. That might be my best bet for the winter.

How’re y’all doing Convicts?!

STAY STRONG!

1st of January, 2014 — Workout — Pushups, Sandbag Rows, Military Presses & Let Me In’s

Convicts.

Its been some time eh? I’ve taken a bit of time off from my workouts and I can absolutely tell. I’m a lot crankier, anxious, full of pent up energy. I’ve also lost muscle mass & strength, which are the biggest pains. I had injured myself a bit and it also started snowing and I got lazy for the holidays. I also moved again …

Sounds like a bunch of excuses. I’ve no excuse good enough, although the injury was the main reason that I took some time off … I just didnt anticipate it being this much!

REGARDLESS, it’s game time. Are you ready to kick some ass this year and achieve some goals? I’m not a new years resolution kinda guy, so don’t mistake this post as that. I will be cranking out the YAYOG 1st Class program to get back into the swing of things, and get my joints ready for the more intense Overcoming Gravity training which I miss terribly!

I’ll be back in a couple of days to post my current measurements and all that jazz, so check back to leave me some notes of encouragement!

That being said … STAY STRONG!
