EDIT: Updated bodyweight goals 1/13/09
Ok, so this is my log. I am mainly starting it to get some help from people who know stuff, about how to achieve my long term goals and how to set some reasonable short term goals to get to the long term goals asap. It seems so easy to make a mistake by simply going out there and working out. Not a mistake actually but I guess, I want to know the most effective way to accomplish my goals in the shortest amount of time.Where I am right now:
I graduated from high school last year and was very active between cross country and track (and pk). I am 6'1", 187 pounds and Not the typical skinny, lanky build of a distance runner. I am definitely not stocky or fat though. I used to have 5-6 percent body weight at the peak of my running but now I have a little roll over the bottom of my abs. I want that to go bye bye. I Feel pretty strong but not in relation to my weight exactly. I feel useless when trying to do a climb-up and can only manage to do one if I can hook my fingers around the other side of the wall. Otherwise I literally can not do it. I try to explode upwards and then I come to a screeching halt when the wall is at my nipples for lack of a better place to say. Then my feet slip and you know the rest. I find myself having to use my elbows. I feel this is the weakest point in my parkour as most of my techniques are very good. So, I need the strength. Long Term Goals (no part. order):
+ Muscle Up - I want to be able to do one and slowly build that number up.
+ Increased Flexibility especially in the legs
+ Lightning Fast Climb-ups
+ Lose excess fat and reveal hidden 6 pack
+ Tone my muscles in generalUpdates (1/13/09):
+ L-seat to handstand press
+ Handstand to elbow lever to handstand
+ Horizontal planche pushup : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyuJ3T0sQ88
+ 90 degree planche pushup
Hopefully the last two are not too ambitious. They are long term goals however.
Thats all I can think of for now and those are the major ones. Please help me develop a routine with stuff I have available. I really don't have much at my house. My training buddy has a total gym type thing, but I really wish it could be stuff I could do at home because that way I know I will actually do all of it.
