So it wasnt a torn meniscus... it was Patellar Tendinitis. Too much use. Fah. I've rested it up sufficiently, I believe. Fridays Jam felt quite good.

Pulled off my first FrogStand Planche to Handstand on... Thursday, I believe. It was quite awesome.
Handstands are going well, I can hold them for about 15 seconds, though I have to move around quite a bit to remain on my hands.
My Broad Jump is as big as Xian's (And he says his is 9'5", so im going to go with that)
I hope to pick up SS sometime after christmas, start implementing that.
Practiced Flags on friday (A LOT), something I hadn't done in about 3 weeks due to the cold weather. The first few were awkward, but I got the rest (Vertical though). I think I need to work my Obliques more in order to be able to preform a horizontal Flag. Dunno How though.


Finally ungrounded, so I will be able to post more stats more frequently. As for this week, Ive got about 3 solid days of Training with the guys from Denver Family and a few others planned out, so I probably wont be doing too much extra conditioning

I just need to find one that is drawn in the ground. I also need to find a good way to build up more leg power.

Hey man...

Don't push it with your knee.

If you feel like its OK to work with, give it two more weeks before going back to high impact exercises like jumps, landings, kongs, etc.  This stuff will REALLY hinder your recovery with patellar tendinitis and make it worse.  The pain signals usually are cut off about 2 weeks before total recovery.  Keep this in mind before you get right back into it or you will be on a rollercoaster of recovery with it for years.  Get this early and rest now...not for 6 months when it gets really bad.

Im going to exclude Christmas Day from my log... Diet was fine, no real workout.


Woke up this morning with some leftovers from Yesterday, so I cooked myself up a pretty meal... not.
Today's Diet
Omelet
   5 eggs
   bout 1 oz of ham
   bout 1 oz of cheese
1/2 cup Oatmeal
2 Cups Milk

Cant recall eating lunch... though it seems I should have. 2 hardboiled eggs... not much. Mighta been more.

About a cup of Potatoes
Small steak
1.5 cups broccoli
2 cups milk

bowl of popcorn
3 hardboiled eggs
some candy

Todays workout
Well, I looked at the crossfit page for some reason today, told me to do 100 of Pullups, Pushups, situps, and squats for time. I made a vague attempt... Though not really timed and not well organized
In all
About 20 pullups (Kinda pathetic, Ive lost strength)
Probably 100 pushups spread throughout the day
about 30 situps
No squats, they hurt my knee.

Mehh...
Life is what you make of it.

Its been... what.. 2 days?
Well, I think im terrible at this game.
Ive been finding that im not really working out like I probably should. I do a few pushups here, a couple pullups there, stand up using one leg when I think of it, and it seems like im not really getting anywhere. I can hold a handstand now for a little bit, though I still have to move around on my hands quite a bit. I managed a HSPU a while ago, but haven't tried since I smashed my hand. I can manage just about everything again, but like I said, im not really sufficiently training and thus not really getting anywhere, muscle wise.

Yesterdays diet was lacking, (And by that, I mean i didnt get enough to eat, been feeling a loss of apetite recently)
Yesterdays workout was nonexistant.

Today's Diet went something like this...
Bowl of cereal in the morning
Handful of goldfish sometime later
Peanut butter sandwich
1 avacado
About a cup of macaroni and cheese
half a chicken/provolone sandwich. And not real chicken. Those nasty patties
1 cup milk
2 slices cheese

Today's Workout was also dismal, like most others
20 or so squats, trying to teach my little brother
20 or so pullups, spread out over the entire day.

In about half an hour I am going to try to do 75 pushups within... some random amount of time.


On the plus side, I did obtain myself a copy of "Starting Strength" and I will at least Read that.

When you lose motivation it is usually a good time to reevaluate your goals.  Do that, and form a plan of action.  Lets see if that helps with your motivation!

Okay. My previous goals looked like this.


Horizontal Flag--- Nowhere near.
20+ second freestanding handstand - Im at about 10 seconds tops, whilst moving quite a bit.
Muscle up - no
20 consecutive pullups - currently at about 5-6
50 consecutive pushups - currently at about 20-25
Being able to consistently run a mile - Nah
Handstand from Planche - Ive pulled it off like twice
Flips - No. not enough time spent in the gym


Which means I haven't made any of them.

My issue is more a lack of a set schedule, or something of the like. I have no semblance of routine, so I end up just sorta wallowing through the days, weeks, months.
Ive just gotta come up with a defined routine, or rotated routine.

Yeh your problem is focus.

Start by focusing on just ONE goal.  Maybe the muscle up since it has so much translation to so many things.  Focus on this goal intently.  Do muscle up work EVERY day.  Even if its just for 10-15 minutes.  Do a short warmup and your muscle up work and you will get it in no time.  Once you get this 10-15 minutes into your routine, it will be a lot easier to build onto this routine and work in other goals.

And Muscle up work is... pullups to the chest and dips, correct?

And negatives on the rings/bar if you can do them slow and controlled.

Been working handstands a lot, did my first freestanding handstand pushup today.
Also did about 100 flags today.

Today was an awesome Jam Downtown with some of the guys. Got a whole lot of practice in while we were showing off for a small crowd later in the evening.

Built a pair of parallettes yesterday, will start working them as soon as I am not too sore to do a single pushup (Might be a bit of exaggeration there)

Been encouraging my little brother to do pullups, currently he is barely able to do negatives. I hope to get him doing pullups within a few weeks. After that its Muscle up, and he starts training with me.

Today was good, in general. Lotta fun, felt good mentally, physically, spiritually, sexually... Oh... whoops... scratch the last one.

As far as diet goes, Ive been eating about 5-8 eggs a day, as well as a bowl of Oatmeal, drinking at least 4 cups of whole milk a day.

Im feeling good

Yesterday I played with my parallettes a bit, trying to see what exercises I could think of. Turns out, theres quite a bit... Ive found ways to work nearly every part of my body with them. From Handstand Pushups to Rail Squats, Dips to Balancing, Stalls to planches. Awesome, I love em. Cost me about $15 and an hour of my time.

Today I hope to get in at least 30 pullups and 30 dips., as well as manage a planche to handstand on the parallettes.

I learned a new trick!! Not really sure whats its called. Basically, you are on the ground, on your back, and you kick up to your feet without your back touching the ground... you have all seen it, I know...

Anyways, Thanks Derik for showing me how to do that, working on that was pretty much my cardio for today ;D.

Personal Failure.

I haven't been consuming enough though, I dont think. Ill start that back up today.

Yesterday's diet was again, lacking, though I really cant remember all I ate.


Yesterday's workout was... mostly a relaxing day, practiced a few things like the Kip-up and some handstands. Did a few dips and attempted some L-sits on my paralletes, in addition to holding a few planches.  A few pullups here, a few pushups there, nothing particularly coordinated.


I think I will actually set some goals for today

6 + 6 + 6 Pullups = 18, + 2 for fun = 20 Pullups today
20 + 20 +20 Pushups = 60 + 15 somewhere = 75 pushups
30 + 30 + 30 Squats = 90 + 10 = 100 squates
4 + 4 + 4 Dips = 16 + 4 = 20 Dips

10 minutes handstand practice.
4 total minutes planche practice


There... thats my goal for today. Ill let you know later if I actually did it.
Life is what you make of it.

Today's Diet
About 5 eggs in the morning
2 cups whole milk
a Banana
One Baked potato (Smothered in sour cream, butter, cheese, and black olives) Ohhh yeah. So bad, but so good
A couple Rice Krispies treats
3 beef tacos
2 cups milk
an apple


I think thats all I ate. I seriously need to just find something CHEAP to munch on all day, high in calories and all that.

Today's Workout
Pretty much none. About 5 attempted handstands, a few attempted kip-ups.
