2/8/2012 Wednesday
Messed around with Bulgarian Ring Dips and Pull Up Variations. 1 arm push ups etc...

Sore

Did some handstand holds and HSPU against the wall yesterday.

Notes:
- Not much. Gotta figure out an actual program or some sort of a progression that I can plug workouts in to for the day.

2/11/2012 Saturday
Handstand Wall Holds to a total of 3 minutes
L-Sit on Rings to a total of 60 seconds (shaaaaaky)
Frog Planche (I think that's what it's called) to a total of 30 seconds and the wrists didn't want it anymore
Tuck Front Lever to 3 Sternum Chins x dunno
Bulgarian Ring Dips x 3 x ??

Stretch + extra shoulder mobility + Jazillion Band Pull Aparts

Pistols x several (assisted) on the right leg trying to balance stuff out.
Notes:
- Messed around with a spin on Steve Low's Beginner Program on Eat Move Improve. Shortened time, and then lost track of what I was doing.
- So far, very pleasantly surprised at how good my shoulders feel. Wrists and elbows bark a little, but I've been smart about backing off and not doing anything excessively stupid.

2/12/2012 Monday
Nothing too structured today:

Handstand holds + a press or two if I started to lose my balance when I tried to get free off the wall.

Push up variations + 3x3 1 arm push ups/side

Pull ups x 10, Wide grip chins x 10, Chins x 3- "Normal Style" no holding and hating life

A couple tuck levers for a couple seconds until i shook too much

60 total L-sits on the floor, pushing up off the knuckles

Tons of lower body mobility and shoulder mobility stuff.

Looks like you are having fun. Tuck levers are challenging. Jr laughs at me when I used to do them as my face turns bright red and looks like it could shoot off my head. I look forward being able start working on the rings in the next 30 days.

Yeah, definitely a challenge. Doesn't seem like they should be... but they are.

Did some stuff last week along the same lines as above.

2/19/2012 Sunday

Warm the shoulders with push up variations
Handstand holds working to a free standing HS x 10 (maybe 8-15 seconds total, not freestanding)
Tuck Levers x 6-8 secs each (seriously, this hard?) x 10 or so I think + 6 pull ups after the first 3
Frog Tuck x 5 x 10 sec/average (balance, didn't feel heavy)
50 hollow rocks


2/20/2012 Monday

Deadlifts @ 135 x 10 x 3
HLR 3 x 8
Pistol practices

Notes:
- Felt light like it should. We'll see if I'm sore tomorrow. I suspect I will be, despite the warm up type weight.

Ha I started to respond to you and then got distracted and wrote my entire workout update in your log.

I am going to do that add 1 rep a day additional work on push ups for the next 30 days to see how I do.

That sort of pushup progression is nice. It's similar to the Chad Waterbury thing I did with airsquats, chins and pushups. I think you'll be happy with how your shoulders feel and that you'll probably put some beef on your chest, tris and a little on the shoulders. Volume and frequency without blowout = SWOLLLLLLLEEEEEEE SUCKAS.

2/22/2012 Wednesday

Fun one tonight. Realized I was due to workout a bit and made it a sort of flow thing. Stretching, T-Spine mobiilty, shoulders, hips, hams, hip flexors etc.

Bootstrapper pushups (I think that's what they're called) x 5 x 12

Handstand Holds on Wall x quite a few. *notes*

Back lever (tuck) x 6 x 10 seconds

Pull ups x 2 x 6 *notes*

L-Sit: x 1 x 8 seconds *nah*

Hollow Rocks x 70 total

Notes:
- fun, but toast. Like it though.
- I can do a pretty solid free standing negative down to the ground in a handstand. Pushing back up is a failure though. Not even close
- Back Lever tucks were a bit better. Shaky, but less so.
- Was going to do 3 x 3 tuck level pull ups, but that wasn't happening. Then 3 x 6 pull ups, but the second set was all she wrote.
- Abs fried. Gotta work on getting the scaps depressed and serratus engaged on the l-sits.

2/24/2012 Friday
Warmed up with mobility, rolling, pushup variations for ~60 total reps

Handstand Holds x 5 x ~10 sec then try to get frestanding. Didn't get it.
HSPU x 2 x 10

Couple planche progressions. Frog stand isn't too bad. Got into a sort of a bent arm, ball planche position a few times.

Front Pull + "Yewkis" progressions that I saw at the GB Wod: Ouch

Notes:
- Late night, working, got in a screw around workout. Supposed to be at some party tonight so I did some real work last night to free myself up for tonight.
- Got to put together a plan to progress through some of these. My joints feel good, shoulders feel nice and getting more mobile, not feeling like a twig or anything so far. Haven't done anything monumentally stupid yet....

We'll see.
