I went on a short vacation back to the states (did some fun beach workout stuff - swimming, headstands, handstands, kipping hspu, l-sit, levers, planche work) and then got back and didn't really have organized workouts worth posting. While it was fun just messin around at playgrounds and sprinting I see that I have gained weight and need to add some discipline back in with eating and organized progression on the workouts. I got to use some of my old workout stuff while on vacation - heavy bag, sled, sledgehammer.. and man I miss those things. So I'm starting off with this metabolic circuit below (metabolic because it seems to rev up the system like crazy)
Monday 5/07 - inside, NBMT Things to note are probably that I did this workout wearing 3 layers of clothing - being warm gets me mobile. Also the HSPU - I tried them and the HS while looking at the opposite top walls corner and I think it did help with my form. I saw that on gymnastics wod website - http://gymnasticswod.com/content/crossf ... rkouts-pt2 - i do not kip on my HSPU though - strict form.. but I may add kipping once I'm tired.
Running Around ~8min
Band UA rows, face pulls, trap 3, rear delt flys, shoulder rom + stabilization, one arm pulls
CIRCUIT~ 3 times through
Handstand Holds [tapping off wall holds] x 2
Hip Bridge + Fire Hydrant Drill [10 reg, 10 single leg, 30 FHD] x 4
Back Lever & Skin the Cats (sup) Pullups (rotating between strict & btn) Tree HSPU & HS tapoffs Planche Tucking at Dip Bars, Pushups (some planche ideas -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U96geCcNM4k - the tree slide down and bench raise = very good progression - trying the planche from a raised up surface (with a closed grip) may help as this is how I progressed to the floor L-Sit.. by doing a chair L-Sit) Reverse Row, FL Row, Inverted Pullup (at dip bars) Dip + Leg Raise & Spread L-SIT
This 2 times through Handstands (wall tap off holds) Front Lever (advanced tuck holds) Planche (in dip position and raising into tuck planche and trying to hold) L-Sit (in dip position playing around with foot movement in and out) Shadowboxing
This 2 times through HSPU + Pike Press - 6+5, 3+5 Pullup + Chinup - 5+5, 5+5 Pushup - 20, 20 FL Tuck Row - 10, 10
Wednesday 5/16 - outside, regular sneakers Haven't played tennis in over a year! I felt able to get anywhere on the court but maybe a little slow in direction change (agility) and backhand and serve was not pretty. Fun though. I'm thinking about a big change to the workouts - to launch me into the next phase of goals and such.. will I actually get some programming down? Funny: Enjoy. Fuckers.
Monday 5/21 - outside biked to big park then biked to playground too - NBMT Just working through some moves as I plan my plans and continue recovery. Kind of nursing a slight shoulder injury.
@ straight bar - jumping muscle ups, exlposive pullups (varying width grips), front lever, back lever (pro & sup grip~ much tougher or just not used to sup grip), skin the cats, pull over, front dips, chin ups, btn pull ups, fl tuck rows (pro & sup grip)
@ parallel bars - dips, L-sits to planche tucks, swings, dips + leg raise & spread, reverse row, one arm rowing (dif grips felt very good - feet on floor, angle with ground changes difficulty, seemed a very useful functional move), inverted pullups, batfink rows, pushups with some more rom on top of bars

Jeez you are thorough.
The leg lifts with open shoulders are pretty humbling eh? When I did my gymnastics coaching course they had stall bars, I had never got to use them before so the first thing I thought was 'let's see what the fuss is about with these' I tried the front and back support that Ido Portal has mentioned (on his blog maybe) and I couldn't do them and I could only manage 10 leg raises with a good tempo. Ever since then I have been pushing to get a set in our gymnastics area, my reasoning being that 'the kids will really benefit'. Now, that's funny
Don't stress about the supination on BL feeling hard for now, I had to push and push till my elbows were quite sore from it, then take some time off. After I started again I had no issues. I would also recommend not always doing the hardest variation you can, sometimes doing just german hangs for time will still provide some benefit.
Wednesday 5/23 - in and out - NBMT What started out as recovery and trying out some moves ended with a bit more. The deadlift isos is to help balance out the shoulder ~ feels great.
back bridge progressions and pike stretches band rows and maltese pulls stretching out shoulder, dislocates, band work tennis ball rolling stability ball stuff deadlift isos L-Sit - from ground over 20 secs (solid) Pushups Some bar work (pullups, chinups, back lever and hangs in sup grip (nice))
Thursday 5/24 - in - barefoot Just a quick one and I thought I could try posting more of these tiny workouts. Keeping it on the DL as my left shoulder and basically whole upper back/shoulder region can use a cool off. Thus, I will probably keep a lowerbody & core focus for a bit. First time going for more than 25 squats in a set - BT's log inspired me to try and build to higher rep squats. The modified sprinter sit-ups is alternating between any situp variety I think of.
2 sets of these Jumping Jacks - 50, 50 Back Extensions - 35, 35 Modified Sprinter Sit Ups - 20, 20 Side Crunch - 10, 10 Hindu Squats - 50, 50
kneeling back extension jump ~ kneel, head to floor, head back up, explode onto feet some stretching and tennis ball rolling
