Today was a massive failure on my part. I dont even want to talk about it.

I've had those before man. They are about the worst days of your life and make you feel like everything you've done is pointless and utter crap. Days like that happen, and no matter how much you want to get frustrated and angry you've gotta realise getting upset does nobody any good, and that the next time around, you'll be back in technicolor!  :D

My Creatine and Whey arrived today. Ill be taking in 15g a day for a 1 week loading phase, then about 3-4g daily for 3-4 months, depending on how long it lasts. Ill probably put on 4-8lb of water here this week, but it will supposedly make my workouts better... we'll see about that. I'm excited though, feels like all the pieces are in place for me to explode.

Time for some new Goals....


Initial Goals when Starting the log
---
Horizontal Flag - Got it, if just for a few seconds
20+ second freestanding handstand I still walk around a bit, but I'll say I can STAY IN THE AIR for 20+ seconds
Muscle up Easy Peasy
20 consecutive pullups  - Realized this goal is somewhat pointless... I'd rather go for 10 muscle ups, and this sorta follows
50 consecutive pushups - also somewhat pointless
Being able to consistently run a mile - Still Fail
Handstand from Planche Easy peasy now :D
Flips - Front, Back, and Side count
--
From When I cut Leg work due to my knee injury
--

20 pullups/chinups- Same as stated above
20 dips - doing weighted instead
60 pushups - again, pointless
Planche to handstand Got it
10 ground HSPUs I like this one.
2 Parallete HSPUs
MuscleUp
The abs of a sex god. I am a sex god.

New Goals
Strength/Power
Upper Body
Ring Muscle Up (Strength probably isn't an issue... its technique that I cant get)
10 HSPUs
10 Bar Muscle ups (Kipped)
5+ second Flag, Each Side, perfectly horizontal
50lb weighted pullup/dip
Planche (pushup, would be nice)
Tuckplanche-handstand-elbowlever-handstand
OAC

Lower Body
10ft Broad Jump (currently at around 9'6" or so, last time I checked)
60 Inch Box Jump (Up to about my shoulders, currently probably somewhere around 53)
2XBW Squat
1.5XBW PC
2.5XBW DL

Flexibility/recovery
Stretch daily (A huge Goal for me)


Skill
Backflips Outside, anywhere (Currently just in the gym on the spring floor)
Sideflips better (I always land them facing backward and in a crouch)
Fronts Off height (Freaks me out for some odd reason)
Btwists (Look SOOO cool)
Flow practice (Be able to hit more than 5 obstacles in rapid succession without losing balance/coordination)

Other
20LB of muscle (Current weight hovering around 148, I'd like to be up to about 165 or so)
Take APEX's Teaching class (so I can better help other's learn)


--
Looks good for now, I'll add if I think of any more




I'm also back regularly on Starting Strength now...

Spent last night at APEX, training, lots of fun. Had some fun with backflips including Handstand to Backflip, even though it was sorta... crap.

I Tried getting 5 muscle-ups in a row but I lost my kip going up on the third one and couldn't get my momentum back. Though it was also 2 in the morning.

Did some benching with a friend just for fun, here's how it went
2X5 @ 95
2x5 @115
2x5 @ 135

I also tried a ring muscle up but I realized that I really can't do it. I lack the stabilizers. I can barely do a single ring dip. Definitely something I need to work on. So instead of trying dips I held a rings turned out position with my arms straight (Body above the rings, top of dip position) just to start strengthening those stabilizers.


I'm feeling better about my front flips, Was practicing off a big mat in the gym, tac to front etc... though I still dont know about outside, I feel like I'm making progress. I also feel like I'm making decent progress on my backtucks, I'd like to try them outside soon, even though my form isn't too great at least I consistently land them.

Anyway, that's my little dealio for the day.

Did you use false grip when trying the muscle ups?  It's damn hard if you don't, not many people can.  That position you describe (arms straight, top of dip) is called the support position.

Balls.

Yep, I was doing my best false grip. Just can't do it, that transition is murder. And thank you. Support position.


Yesterday I finally got my backflips outside. Did about 30 in the gym (as well as handstand-backflip... which is awesome). Then, while I was hanging out with this girl I like, I suddenly found motivation to do them outside :P. AWESOME!

Suuuppperr sore from training a ton, especially my abs. My entire upper body = pain. Did some powercleaning yesterday, bunch of muscle ups and pullups, wall handstands... ohhh Sore.

In any case, been having a lot of fun, made a lot of progress in the past few days.

Spend a lot of time in support on rings.  When that is solid, increase your reps on ring dips and try to work on your Rings-Turned-Out (RTO) supports.  When that is solid, start doing ring dips with rings turned out just at the top.  When that is solid, do RTO throughout the whole dip motion.

When you get 10 reps of RTO dips, see me.  You are ready for higher intensity gymnastics skills like the iron cross.

Thanks Chris! I'll start doing my pull-ups on rings as well, and working on those ring muscle-ups. Not being able to do that is QUITE annoying.

IMHO pullups on rings is a waste of time unless you are specifically working your false grip.  I wouldn't do any sort of hang/pullup work on rings without being in false grip 100% of the time -- that goes for back lever and front lever, also.  Afterall, all of these moves are intended to go from support to hang and back -- and you need a false grip to do that.
