Spartan Log

Postby xJOHNx » Fri Nov 18, 2011 8:31 am

So after some time off from the S&C world (fed up with all the guru's, the inability of certain people & trainers to have a decent dicussion), I'm back on track for about 3 months now.

Mostly bodyweight training with heavy focus on calisthenics.

PR on pull ups is 12 at the moment. Not too wide grip.

Today

conditioning day

- 4 sets of 5 jumps onto an 80 cm box (that's 2.6 feet).

- 10 x 100 meter sprints, 1 minute rest.

- 10 sets of 2 burpees, 30 second rest between the sets.

Low workload due to bruised ribs with cartillage damage. The fucker is regrowing, so I cannot go very heavy on conditioning days.

Listening: Slayer - Disciple

Today

The aftermath.

Warm up:
- 50 jumping jacks
- 30 navy jacks
- 2 sets of 5 high jumps
- 40 mountain climbers
- 10 hip kossacks

- 2 sets of 5 pull-ups.
- 2 sets of 5 dips. Ultraslow.
- 3 sets of 10 reverse rows. Ultraslow (different handsetting: close, wide, medium).
- 3 sets of 10 push-ups. Ultraslow (elevated, diamond 2).
- 8 sets of wrist-roller dorsiflexion.

Ultraslow stuff seems to burn it. I was toasted after this. Could be the lack of sleep aswell.

3 days ago:

5 dips
50 push ups in a 45° angle to avoid slacking or bad form.

4 rounds.

+ 30 pull-ups, mid-wide grip.

today:

general warm up consisting of squats, jumping jacks, mountain climbers & 5 sets of 2 burpees (rib flared up again due to sparring).

5 pull-ups
50 "horizontal rows" in a 45° angle. (supinated hands & arms tend to switch every set). Hand narrower every set.

6 rounds,

supinated grip: wide, mid & narrow.
pronated grip: wide, mid & narrow.

thoughts & notes:
- Very general, basic training. Must get some rings.
- 1st set is always cold on the fingers, subsequent sets go well. Even in minus 5 degrees weather.
- Need more unipodal work.
- Need more mobility for lower legs & core work.
- My grip is fucked. Forearms are litteraly pulsing.
- Controlling the movement through slow moves seems to have some serious benefits. Nice stretch feeling in the antagonist muscles & I feel my tendons getting stronger.
