This program does work really well. When I was putting mine together it took a bit but it paid off...

If anyone wants to track my results from this type of program then you can go here where I started this: http://performancemenu.com/forum/sho...t=3203&page=13

I hope the program works well for you. I know I have seen some pretty good results in the past 4 weeks or so -- this blend of programming is pretty intense, especially the OACs.

Back level (tuck) 10x6s
Elevated HSPU 3x3
MU Ladder 3x1
HLL V to L 3x5
Pistol Ladder 3,5,3 (went light on these due to a PT test tomorrow)

Holy cow...already progress being made. Back levers in the tuck position were a lot easier today (could of course be the two days of straight rest and the nap I took today).

Handstand work coming along nicely. Weight dropping slowly but steadily, below 180 now. Drank coffee during workout today (black with cinnamon) which actually went fine with our cool weather.

Bought materials to make a set of parallettes out of iron (don't trust PVC myself, plus a lot less cutting). Going to put them together soon and I'll post pics.

Yea, back lever strength comes along really quick. I hit my first straddle back lever after 2 weeks of training it twice a week, however the jump from straddle to full is kinda intense. I still dont have a good full BL hold

Rest day, trying 30 min of Yoga today.

Downloaded an application for my iPhone, called Lose it! Going to use it to test the calorie in/calorie out theory. It tracks in versus out based on exercise. Its basically Fitday on your phone with a calorie budget.

Update: Holy crap, Yoga kicks my ass. That sounds sad coming from me...but heck it did. Loving the relaxed and stretched out feeling I have right now though!

I really enjoy Yoga and it is something that my wife likes so we can do it together...

I have the Yoga For Regular Guys DVD's from Diamond Dallas Page and they absolutely crack me up. There are some Yoga poses that are really hard when you are laughing.

You are right about how good you feel afterward.

First Hey to your WO log

Yeah I have found yoga to be very helpful in strengthening positions in my lifts if I slightly alter the practice to mimic the stance and positions used.

Also there are some awesome handstand and planche progressions if you are in the right class.

The inner peace and mindful flow are also pretty cool (LOL)

Adv Tuck Planche (6x10s)
Assisted OAC with static (3x3)
HSPU neg (3x3)
Tuck FL pull (3x5)
WW half (3x5)

10 rounds of:
75m sprint
Walk back to start line

Adv tuck planche coming along nicely, decided to up the time held. Can't believe how fast this stuff is coming - of course concentrating on it helps. Yoga actually helped soreness, its down a lot this week.

Weather was wonderful, the sprints were fun. All in all did some IP flying this morning in formation, had a great breakfast, home to workout, time with son. World is good.

Still doing suburi strikes with bokken...just haven't logged them.

Bought a 250CC motorcycle today, pretty fun, I've had all the way up to a Honda VTX1800 but I just wanted something for going to and from work.

Major yard work today instead of running, ended it with a 1 hour planting of a pecan tree...man that sucks without a power auger!
