On the "yet" or the whole sentence? I should have put "yet" in bold, italics, underlined, larger font...

Mostly to highlight the good parts, but yes, also to highlight the yet

Note:
I guess I've been doing front lever work, not back lever. Go figure.

Yeah, yet is the key factor. It'll happen eventually.

2/26/2012 Sunday

Tired. Old dog's been waking me up to go out a lot lately. Weird schedule's screwing me up enough, but I don't know the last time I slept more than 3 hours without being woken up by something.

HS Bridge Wall Walks x 4 x 10 steps out. Do one, rest, do one, rest, not 4 straight through.
+
2 sets of 10 HSPU

Front Lever (tuck) x 8 x 10 seconds *notes*

Support Holds 4 x 15 seconds

TRX "IYTW" x 3 x 2 reps through each one

Abz

Notes:
- Tired.
- Levers better in that I'm less tucked, but I'd be lying if I said I got through each hold at 10 seconds straight. I probably got 4 or 5 at ten seconds, and the others ~8 seconds, I think. I hope.
- I'm always surprised at how fatigued my biceps, upper back, abs and even triceps are after doing these tuck levers.

2 days off. Had the normal rest day on Monday, went to the Sharks game for a birthday party for a very close friend of the family. It was awesome. We were in some sort of executive or presidential suite in the club area. Food, full bar, then we had the first three rows full of people. I got to sit first row, on the mother-f'in ice. One of the coolest nights of my life, and I didn't even come close to having the most fun. One of those nights where everything just works. One of those nights where you're just thankful to be around and for the people that are in your life.

I don't do much in the way of religion these days, but something or someone out there has put me into a life that's a lot better than I realize a lot of times. I need to remember that more and better than I often do.

2/29/2012 Wednesday

Handstand Work x 5 max w/ an attempt at free work. When I lose it, I can usually stay somewhat vertical and do a negative HSPU.

Tuck Front Lever Holds x 5 x 12 sec hold (legit 12 tonight)

3 x 9 tuck yewkis (link) - kind of, I guess.

5 Frog Stand and a handful of Tuck Planche holds- Frog stands can hold a while, ball planche, not so much.

A few ring biceps curls to get the swolz on
30 total v-ups

Notes:
- Not a bad workout. To keep from blowing myself out, I may either take a PTTP type approach to these workouts, hitting a Handstand Movement, Lever Progression, Planche Progression and 1 leg or deck squat movement. Not sure.
- If I go to a 3 or 4 day workout set up, it'll be something similar, but one day more focused on HS, another more on Lever, another on Planche, and rotate through with lower body still aimed balancing the hips.

Dunno.

I try so hard to have an attitude of gratitude (what I call it with the kids, don't know where I heard it but like it). Every day I try and start and end with thanks. Lot's of stuff to be thankful for especially health.

Indeed. Health and good friends and family are major reasons to be grateful.

Front row at the Sharks game is too, on a more shallow level.

Hey Allen,
Good to hear from you.

Training's been okay. Been trying to rebuild myself a bit and get things balanced. No real significant problems for a long while now.

I've lost my motivation to pile plates on the bar and just want to be "in shape", fairly strong and find something that I can sustain for a while.

The bodyweight/gymnastic strength exercises have been fun and humbling. I suppose if I lose access to a gym, developing some of these skills and movements is a good idea.

Makes for happy joints too as long as the wrists are prepped. So far.

How you been?

Did some stuff on Friday and Monday that was pretty much like I did before. Just some chins and Ring Dips on Monday w/ a little work on the traffic stopping abz.

3/7/2012 Wednesday
2 x 10 Pull ups
3 x 3 Tuck Level Pull ups
3 x 10 Chins
IYT TRX for a few
40 Reps total of Ring Dips; not quite Bulgarians, but trying to get a little wider w/ the rings
Abz

Notes:
- A little foggy today, distracted, thought getting inverted with some handstand work wouldn't be the best idea.
- Getting into high gear with some professional ambitions. It's gonna be a bumpy ride...
