Wrist injury almost fully healed

12/06/12
Arrggh, strained ankle! >:( Basketball is making me too injury prone. Although, I think that the ankle won't stop me of working out, as I just do upper body exercises; it might get a bit hard (not impossible) just on the HSPU's as the feet go to the wall. Guess I'll have to make it single-footed.

Wow, it has been almost 4 months since the last post here :O. I've kept up on basketball so I was still active, although I haven't done nothing at all neither on the parkour side nor bodyweight training; well, until past week.

So, here's is what's going on: If everything goes well, next year (and the followings too) I'm going to study aboard in Cape Town, South Africa. ;D And, as Parkour is well known and practiced there - they got the Parkour SA and other communities, jam, etc - it will be a much better environment to keep & enjoy training, without any lack of obstacles or motivation problems.
Thus, I've decided to start a 6 months "program" or log. The following 6 months will be a sort of preparation for next year: I'll be focusing mainly on English, Bodyweight training (and nutrition), a bit of parkour aand English. Then, next year, I'll come back with the normal bodyweight training and A LOT of parkour routine.

................
Will have to back-up a bit because of the inactive time. Here are the updated goals:

Goals in progress:
10 dips
10 pull ups
5 Tuck Front Lever Pull-Ups

Waiting Goals:
3 HSPU's
3 Muscle ups

................
04/06/12
3 random sets of HSPU negatives (I hadn't seen the Prilepin table yet, so was uncertain about it)
3x5 Dips
3x5 Pull Ups
3x3 Tuck FL Pull Ups

Can't even reach 7reps of dips and pull ups :O. Hope to get back to the old numbers soon

06/06/12
3x6sec HSPU negatives
3x6 Dips
3x5 Pull Ups
2x4, 1x3 Tuck FL Pull Ups

08/06/12
Injured wrist while playing Basketball; feel over my right hand only, over-flexing the wrist.

10/06/12
Wrist's getting better. Hope to be okay to workout tomorrow.

The basketball training season started last week, that's why I haven't updated it since then. Well, actually, I haven't updated because I have been working only on BBall drills daily (excluding Wednesdays and weekends), having the practices on Mondays and Thursdays and Physical Education on Tuesdays and Fridays mornings.
With that said, I would only be able to workout on Wednesdays and weekends. But that way I wouldn't have time to recover (rest days).

So I decided to focus on Basketball and Parkour.
Although, I will try to work on legs strength (Box jumps, jump squats, tabata squats, etc) when possible.

Don't want to turn this into a Basketball log too (would be cool though :P), so I'll only update when I work on Parkour skills.

Warmed up with jump rope.

3x8 Box Jumps
2x5 Shrimp Squats

Shoulder mobility and stretching in the end.
Was going to work on precisions and wall runs -> climb ups but the box jumps got me pretty tired.

Rest day

and wrist strength: 3x5 wrist pushups

03/02/12
Warmed up with some random b-ball layup & shooting drills.

HSPU's negatives - 3x5. Feeling pretty comfortable now doing it for 5sec, will try increase it to 7sec after next week and see how I'll handle it. Can't wait to do the normal (concentric) "version".
Dips - 3x7

Pull ups - 3x7
Tuck Front Lever Pull ups - 3x5

Played basketball on one of the brakes at school. The bad of this was that when rebounding the ball hit the ring finger (yeah, you guys know "bad" this is) now it is injured, although it could have been worst if I didn't immediately massaged it (BIG THANKS for the EMI articles ;D ;D ). So I'll let it heal tomorrow and hopefully on Friday it'll be OK. It'll be national holiday on Friday so I'll be able to workout out and work on the PK skills too.

Still getting used to the new school schedule & routine so I've been inactive all these days. And I'm feeling soooo bad without working out. So, next week I'll definitely get back on track (again).

I had physical education lesson on Tuesday though.

Worked on precisions and wall runs again. Also did climb ups and kongs.
Now its a lot easier to put the palms up the wall to start the dip when doing the climb ups. This is when you see that working out is useful and worth it.

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

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

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 :|

14/01/12 & 15/01/12
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.

Welcome man!! :D

-About the eating/weight thing: EAT MORE. Seriously, one of the main things you have to do is eat a lot more! When the guys over here told me this I usually got pissed of (:P lol), but I started doing this, and it is really paying off. Just eat, but if you think that you're eating enough just check out a site that can calculate the calories of meals and that stuff, you need +3000 calories AT LEAST.

-First of all you have to decide if you want a Strength or Endurance aimed routine, after that we'll be able to give better and more "accurate" feedback. As Paul said, they are at opposite sides so you can't work them at the same time.

-Replace the squats with weighted squats. If you don't have access to weights do pistols, air squats, shrimp squats or any other variation.

I agree with everything that Paul said (well, mostly everything). Only disagree on these:
- You don't really need 48 of rest between workouts. Working M/W/F is a good way to start. If you notice that you can take a step further, do M/T/T/F. 3-4x a week is the way to go.
- And doing explosive (or normal) pull-ups will work better. There's no need to do pull-ups negatives if you can already do 11-12 of them.

*If you post the workout/routine for feedback on the General Fitness section you'll get more feedback ;)

Happy Training!

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