I have decided to keep track of my workouts. Currently, I am recovering from a shoulder injury, not sure how it occurred. Prehaps just overall wear and tear from years of working out. Unfortunately, during the past 6 months any overhead lifting has been troublesome. Prior to altering my workouts, which included KB exercises ranging from Double Military Presses, Clean and Presses, front squats, turkish get ups, swings etc. I thoroughly enjoyed them and the results I was getting in lowering my body weight and toning.
During the past three months I have shifted from a KB based workout to a more body weight focus using various gymnastic elements including static holds of front lever, back lever, support on rings, and L-sits. These are following by various FBE's, Functional Body Exercises, depending on the day. The results of this format has been an improved range of motion in my shoulder and less pain. The drawback is that while I may have gained some muscle, my weight has increased by 10 pounds. Time to mix it up to lean myself out.
