16th of January, 2014 — Workout — Wide Grip Pullups, Rows, Let Me In’s & Sandbag Curls

Hey Convicts,

I forgot to mention in my last post that I’m now on the Strength Block of the YAYOG 1st class program, meaning it’s Interval training.

ITS RING DAY BABY!!! I found a spot outside thats kind of covered!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Albeit, its 20 something out so it’ll be a bit chilly but its so worth it. I LOVE ME SOME RING TIME!

Well hot damn those Sandbag Curls were a lot more intense than I had anticipated. They were the last workout of the day, but I didnt think 70lbs of sand would be that difficult, especially because I was using both arms. Maybe I’m a lot weaker than I thought haha. Good thing I’m working out then right?

I absolutely missed doing my Pullups though. The burn from those is only second to the abdominal burn. I love them both … for some strange reason. Guess I’m just crazy I suppose. Do you like the burn?!

It was surprisingly not too cold out once I got the blood pumping. The first few sets of the Pullups were a bit rough, but after I got them going, it was all good. I was also shadow boxing during my rest times, so that probably helped get the blood pumping.

BAM! Leave me some love with how your workouts were are going, if you’re struggling, you know the usual jazz.

STAY STRONG!

Lets GO!

Well my body picked the worst freaking time to get me sick. I probably shouldnt’ve worked out today, but that endorphin addiction is in full swing again. RAWRRR!!!!!!!

Yeah, it’s a bit rough when you’ve to blow your nose between each set. Ah well, I still managed a decent workout today. I’ve also decided to start my cutting diet a bit early as this last month of not working out and still eating my mass gaining diet has taken its toll on the ol’ BF%. I’m incredibly unhappy with how I look at the moment. It’s actually quite discouraging. Thankfully all I need to get it back is mental. I know I can alter my body well enough, but hot damn. This is the highest BF% I’ve ever had in my adult life. Although he’s awfully douchey, TMT says it best …

– HARD WORK AND DEDICATION 

STAY STRONG!

22nd of October, 2013 — Workout — Convicts, lets talk …

My fellow convicts,

Today was an excellent test of my perseverance and motivation. That shit was so cold out there today for me. My body is absolutely not ready for that yet. I’m not sure what it was, and it wasn’t even snowing but that it was cold! That was a pretty intense battle going on in my head for about two hours before the I got out of work. It was actually kind of amusing. I’m never really sure how I can convince myself once I get on that negative train for so long!

Alas, I’ve come out ahead. Lost a few seconds on the Back Lever as well as the First round of the L-Sit’s. I also improved on a few things, so it all balances out. I was a bit disappointed in my Archer Pullups a bit today, but I’ll get it back. I need to setup my pullup station so that I can just workout in my apt again. I dont want to, but maybe once my body has acclimated to the cold I’ll go back out to the park.

STAY STRONG!

Hows things Convicts?

Posting this a day late. It was freezing yesterday though! Cold for working out at least, and its only going to be getting colder too. Some numbers went down, some numbers went up. Nothing out of the ordinary. I was pleased with my progress on the Advanced Tuck Front Lever though. They’re coming along nicely. I think the Back versions are much easier though … well as easy as any lever can be 😉

STAY STRONG!
