FRIDAY 13th MAY 2011 Strength Circuit - 20 Burpees - Pull-ups x20secs: A. Wide B. Regular C. Towel D. Chin-ups E. Hammer - Dips x20secs - Push-ups x20secs: A. Divebomber B. Wide C. Diamond D. Knuckle E. Regular x5 rounds No rest between exercises, 2 minutes rest between rounds. First circuit do exercises A, second do B ect. Gymboss is set so there is 10 seconds between exercises to get into position. This is a lot harder than it looks on paper, as all the exercises are upper body, the arms are shot pretty quickly. Definetly worth a try if you're looking for new routines. If anyone reading this does give it a go, let me know how you find it.
SATURDAY 14th MAY 2011 - 20 Pull-ups - 4x25 Burpees - 15 Chin-ups Again, I was only really going to do the burpees but was tempted by the bar. It'll be back to business as usual on monday, get back into training properly.
MONDAY 16th MAY 2011 AM: 2 Mile run in 12:34 10 Pull-ups 2x25 Burpees
PM: Core - 25 Burpees - L-Sit: 3x30sec, 3x20sec - Wheel Rollouts (on incline board): 6x3 CIRCUIT x4: - Decline Crunches x20 - Lying Hip Swing x30 - Side Bends (with 30kg DB) x10 per side - Chinnies PLANK 2 MINUTES - 25 Burpees 1st day back to training as normal today. New goal is to run 2 miles in 12:00 and 3 miles in 18:00, 6 minute miles for both distances. Also although I've already achieved 20 pull-ups, I feel I need to make doing the 20 pull-ups easier and more comfortable, as well as get used to the different variants of pull-ups.
New running trainers, and so got myself a blister a couple cm big. Not the worst I've had, but big enough for me to pause exercises that put too much pressure on the blister for a day or two until it's better. I am on 1,750 burpees at the moment, will resume them very soon, when the foot has healed a little.
It's funny, I've never had to break in a pair of trainers - boots yes, but not trainers.
THURSDAY 19th MAY 2011 Strength - 25 Burpees - Elevated OAPU: 6x4 - Pull-ups x3: 4, 6, 8, 6, 4 - A. Knuckle PU: 4x25 - B. Dips: 20, 15, 10, 10 - 25 Burpees Blister is a little better, not done the full 100 today, will leave it for a Saturday 200 burpee session. OAPU is coming along nicely, did a few from the floor but they weren't strict enough to warrant knocking it off my list. Perhaps gtg will help, but I'll have to find a platform around the house to do them strictly off.
Pull-ups are as strict as possible, although admittedly the last pyramid had some quality issues on the higher sets.
