14th of January — Workout — Decline Pushups, Military Presses, Close Grip Pushups, Dips

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.

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!

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 😉
