Started pretty late today (7pm).

Parkour related:
-Tried to change direction while swinging on bar, with no success. Could only put one hand on the bar when turning.
A-nd the "daily" long kong. Still can't clear the picnic the table, I'm even starting to think that I'll never do it,sigh. But will keep trying them, I GOT TO do this. Will film some attempts next week for feedback. Oh, and, on one of the attempts today I crouched really deep and the jump was higher than usual but barely went forward, so the impact on the wrists made them mad. Now the left wrist is hurting a lot, damn (something is wrong with this wrist!!The other never hurts, just the left one).

Couldn't try the tuck planche because of the wrist pain and tried pull-ups with no success (strangely). So I stopped there, couldn't handle anything else.

What a day, uff
Merry Christmas to y'all!! :D

Was raining a lot so I had to train indoors. As the bar is outside, I only did pushing exercises.

Tuck Planche - 2x10sec ; 2x5sec
Dips - 3x5
Pseudo Planche PU's - 3x5

Stretch at the end.

And I feel like I didn't warm up properly today (was a bit lazy): when I finished doing the TP sets I heard some "clicks and pops" on my shoulders, and I felt some pain on my right shoulder while sleeping.
Hope this serve as a lesson!

Didn't get enough sleeping (insomnia I think). So since 1pm I was tired.

No work done today too. Spent the day hanging with some friends.
And on the nutrition side it wasn't good at all! Going to pay more attention on this next year.

Looking forward the last training day of the year. It gotta be epic!

Mobility work:
German hangs & Wall slides

Tuck Planche: 2x10sec. These were killing my wrist today. I'm considering to stop doing them, but will keep up with the wrist strength & mobility. Now I'm looking for an exercise to replace them, I'm thinking about HSPU's. Any ideas ?? And I'll stop with the Front Lever progression too, will replace it with the tuck front lever pull-ups I think.

Pull-ups: 3x5. Argh, will test maximum bt the end of the week.
Inverted Rows: 3x6
Dips: 3x5
Pseudo Planche Pushups: 3x5

HSPU's nevatives - (7sec) 3x5. On the last 2 reps of the last set I could only handle 5sec. Though, though.
Dips- 3x5
Pseudo plache pushups - 3x5

Pull ups - 3x5
Tuck front lever pull ups - 5x3. Wow, wasn't expecting to be THIS hard. Struggling here.
Inverted rows - 3x5

Will start doing air squats. I'm really missing leg training.

Poor sleeping today, which reduced performance and made me lazy.  :|

HSPU negatives - (7sec) 3x5 . As yesterday, could only handle 5sec on the last 2 reps of the last set.
Dips - 3x5
PPPU -3x5
Pull ups - 3x5
Tuck front lever pull ups - 5x3
Skipped Inverted rows.

Triceps are a bit sore after this. And it's the first time after 1 moth :o
Oh, and, BTW my left arm is getting bigger than the right :P

Finished with stretching. Should start stretching every day, or at least every workout day.

Will start doing the jumps over box & shrimp squats on Monday. Finally leg training !!

Rest day.

Was planning to go out for a run and try the double kong for the very first time, but the neck isn't that good yet.
The nutrition side wasn't that good too: drank 2 soft drinks and ate LOTS of samosas.

First day working lower body. It was great.
Box jumps - 3x8
Box jumps (Iso) - 3x8 Shrimp Squats (beginner)- 3x5

Today was the day to see my max's on the upper body exercises. And the results.....
Pull ups - 12
Dips - 12
Pseudo Planche Pushups - 14
Inverted Rows - 14
I wasn't under my full capabilities though because of the injury (the neck isn't fully healed yet. Felt lack of flexibility on it when doing the pull ups).
With that said... 2 goals accomplished! Great, Great . :D :D :D

For now this is how I think the updated workout will look like:
-Add muscle ups (finally);
-Maybe weighted pull ups and dips
-Remove PPPU's and inverted rows;
*-Was considering handstands but HSPU's + Weighted dips + Muscle ups + Handstands would be too much right ??.
Maybe if the weighted dips don't get included.

And I'll wait until the neck fully heal before getting back on training.

Didn't do what planned (couldn't).

12/01/12 & 13/01/12
Rested.
It looks like the neck is better now. Will get back tomorrow or on Sunday. Hope it doesn't mess up with the healing.

Still resting

16/01/12
BACK ON TRACK!

3x8 box jumps
3x5 shrimp squats. When doing it with with my right leg I noticed that the toes had to point a bit sideways otherwise my knee would turn inwards, making it almost impossible to do these. I have this issue of foot going a bit sideways when walking but never payed much attention to it. Now I will !! Read the "Shoes, Sitting, and Lower Body Dysfunctions" article again, and hope that walking more barefoot and with the outside of the foot helps. Oh, and, more ideas are always welcome :D :P

HSPU's negatives - 3x5. These were harder compared to the last time I did. Damn unplanned rest week :sigh:
Muscle ups - Just... wow. Couldn't do a single rep. After 4 tries I gave up.

Pull ups @ 10lbs - 3x4. Was going to the the 4th set but the mother saw me on the bar with the weights on the bag and told me to stop because I could get hurt, fall, etc and that kind of stuff -.-'
Dips @ 10lbs - Couldn't do these too. But I thing that it was mostly because of this ^^.

Finished with a full body stretching session.

On 16/01 night did 5 wrist pushups right before sleeping.

17/01/12
Rest day

5 wrist pushups right before sleeping.
Stretching session

18/01/12
The parents told me to stop using weights -.-' :sigh: . Now I gotta do the pull-ups and dips without weights, so aiming for highers reps would be the way to go right? And doing the them as fast as possible (explosive pull-ups/dips).

Last night decided to sleep earlier (at 11pm) because I got to readjust the sleeping schedule as we'll be back to school next week. I was aiming to 9.5hours of sleep thus waking up at 08.30. But it didn't go as planned and I woke up at 07.10, and couldn't get back to sleep. So it was ~8hours of sleeping.

3x8 box jumps
3x5 shrimp squats

HSPU's negatives - 3x5
Dips - 3x7

Pull ups - 3x7
Tuck front lever pull ups - 3x5. Don't know how I could do 5reps of this :o. Probably my hips weren't at shoulder lever. Or I'm getting stronger ;D .

Stretching session !

Tonight I'll unfortunately sleep very very late. I'll be up until ~05am watching NBA Wednesday :|

Rest Day!

20/01/12
Did some precisions and wall runs. Felt more confident on the precisions and increased the height of the wall runs ;D ; I almost reached the top of the house, just a few inches off. Now the "goal of the month (for next month)" will be to reach the top of the house.

3x8 box jumps
No shrimp squats today

HSPU's negatives - 3x5
Dips - 3x7

Pull ups - 3x7
Tuck front lever pull ups - Didn't do these because I was out of time. Started working out pretty late

No stretch today. Bad !

Oh, and just got the school schedule. Will have lessons in the morning only on Tuesdays and Fridays, so I'll workout on Mon/Wed/Thurs. Although this may change when I get the basketball training schedule.
And... school time = more PK training time  ;D
