Reverse Hypers (slow eccentric to stretch in hammies, held, then slow concentric)
Low back was really sore. Followed up with hammies being sore the next day.
Hip flexor stretches
Pistol attempts. Did 3 on the left with no pain after stretches. Soreness in the lower limb the next day caused some patellar tendon pain that I anticipate will fade with soreness. This is progress...
1/7/2010 - Rest Day. Happy Birthday to me.
1/8/2010 - 1/17/2010 - Not anticipating much in the way of workouts. Going to visit my gf in the UK so we will be busy going all over the place -- maybe some HS work because i do that all the time, anyway..
1/18/2010 - Jetlagged. Not so bad though - i kind of lke getting up at 5 AM with my body thinking it is noon! Taught PK class which was basically a 2 hour jam with lots of jogging. Was fun but my body has not been used like that in a while - so it was painful. Need to focus on stretching those quads out again.
1/19/2010 - Morning workout - went light because I have a tumbling session at night.
Box Squats: 45x2x8
Box squats are going to be a staple in my warmup for a long time until I fix my damn problem of knees tracking forward which led to a lot of my disastrous knee injuries. need to really focus on those glutes and hammies...
Wanted to just go for the maximum - would like to get back up to 3x5 again and progressing on weights again. Since this was my first day back and I taught PK last night, it will probably happen next session
1x5 (stupid leg rest was set too low and my thighs were killing me!)
Felt sore the whole way through...this whole workout took me about a half an hour, which is good time - just a light workout to get back into it.
Wound up not going to gymnastics because of just feeling drained and sore.
1/21/2010 - Work Day. Went to the gym and then followed up with about 1.5 hours of parkour training.
Box Squats: 1x10 @ 24 inch box; 3x10 @ ~18 inch box
Can feel my form improving but these are remarkably difficult.
Just lost steam on the last rep. Probably has to do with my hiatus. Not too bad though. I may progress to 95x3x5 again next time - or maybe I will solidify 90x3x5....will be able to tell better next time.
Hip Flexor stretches
3x2 HS on rings attempts. Almost to totally vertical -- a bit off the plane.
Wow...its been a lot longer than I thought since I updated this thing. Nearly 2 weeks. Thats prolly the longest ever where I wasn't on a vacation or something. I will need to go back only as far as I remember...
