First post updated with new goals and workout

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.

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.

FULL rest day

Messed up with the sleeping position, now the neck is hurting a LOT! Could barely look to the sides :/ . Hope to be OK by Monday.

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 !!

Well no if I hold my foot it goes fine but with that form it won't work straight

Go over the roll tutorials and advice, and find someplace with more room to practice.

Yeah, just take a look on some E.M.I articles. You'll find both about setting goals and making routines. On the Gen Fit sticky you'll get links to them. Then, post what you ended with on General fitness as you said. You'll get lots of good feedback.
Looking forward it! :)

It will give much better results. It's the way to go!

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

                 Jamming afterwards was great and I overcame a couple fears, one being a running precision, and another was a precision I haven't been able to get myself to do since I started training almost 2 years ago, even though it's easy.
Awesome man. This is one of the main problems I have (fears/mental blocks), and I always fell sooo good when I overcome them.
Glad you did it!

I'll be editing/uploading my video soon. Tomorrow is the first Sonoma County Weekly Jam of the year, and I'm hoping it will have a great turn out. On monday is a big jam for a friend's birthday in the city. Oh yes.
!!--WaitinG FoR ThE VideO (status: in progress)--!! :P

did my highest kong ever, did my narrowest kong ever
COOL. Next time do a higher and narrower than the ones you did today ;)

tore off my first callous.
It's always so exciting ;D :P

filmed a teaser that is very dear to my heart (read the description when I post it) and its uploading to youtube as we speak...
Let us know when the upload completes.

  • 10 Pull-ups
  • 3 OAPU's each hand
  • 10 dips
  • 1 minute assisted handstand
  • 5 second L-hang
I just realized I have no real structured workout right now. So here it is!

APK warm-up
6-5-4-3-2 for pull-ups
2x10 pseudo pushups
30sec x 3 wall handstands
Total 1 min tuck planche(varied with tuck lever or L-hang/sit)
Assisted pistols (varied with one are push-ups)
Hey man!
It would be better to add dips to the workout, as one of your goals is to achieve 10dips. And the pull-ups... I THINK (I'm not sure about it) that doing a more of a strength directed workout, like 3x5 pull-ups would give you a faster progression.
Make sure you that you REALLY lean forward when doing the pseudo pushups, your hand should be more or less on waist level. And if you're working until failure when doing 10reps, try adjusting to 3sets of 5-8reps.
And I don't know how you're assisting your pistols, but you should give a try on the weight assisted (just add some weight on your hands and out them straight in front of you without bending the arms),they're great, it's working pretty cool for me.
And just one more little thing :D: If you want more accurate info about strength training, check out  the general fitness sticky, there you'll find links to a lot of great articles. And check over at Eat Move Improve. And if you're looking to really "get into" bodyweight training and have the cash, buy Steven's "Overcoming Gravity" (you can find more more about it on the gen. fitness forum). I don't have it yet, but I bet it is GREAT. It's already on my watch list. But... on the mean time, the other articles I talked about will do the job!
Uff, finally finished my post. Well, not yet...

Keep it up! and happy training  ;D
