I've kind off neglected my log.
So here I go again.

Up until yesterday I just trained how I felt like training. No sets or reps, just training. It will not take me far.

So:

Yesterday

Warm up:
- running,
- animal movements (dragonwalk & crabwalk)

Training:
- superset off: 7 dips followed by 10 push ups. 5 rounds. Topped off by holding isometrically for 30 seconds after the last move.
- superset: 5 switchblade push-ups, 5 hindu. 4 rounds.
- L-sit for time & assorted moves.
- 5 dragon flags.

Today

Cardio:
- 3 x 7 minutes of running.

Today

Warm-up:

- 5 mile run

- dragon walk & bunnyhop

Pre-training focus on weaker points:

- 1x3 wide grip pull-ups. With 30 second active hanging on the last one.

- 4x2 wide grip pull-ups. With 30 sec. hanging.

Doing these to grease the groove more. I can regular pull ups as much as I want, but still have some tendons screaming when I go very wide grip.

Training:

- 1x8 neutral grip pull ups.
- 1x8 chin ups.
- Mixing grips: 6x6.

Evening:

15x3 very slow push-ups with feet elevated. Experiment to make my upper pecs grow more.

morning

- Fasted Sprints. 6 sprints, 20 sec sprint & 10 sec rest. Legs of rubber in the last sprint.

- 5 x 2 wide pull-ups, with focus on hanging and legraising after the last pull. Hanging at 0°, 90° and 150° (each for 10 sec).

Afternoon

- 4 x 6 wide grip pull-ups. Went great. 2 minute break between each set.

some levering practice (front, back & side lever), seems to go better.

- superset:
*dragon flag
*10 inverted rows (supinated).
4 sets.

Not the longest work out. But we'll see the results.

Morning sprints: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_art ... g_solution

Week 1: goes well. Took 1 day off after 3 days. And 1 day off between week 1 and two. Hamstringes kind off need it to adapt to high excentric loads.

Yesterday morning:

- 5 x 7 slow dips, 2 minute break in between.

- 3 x 15 elevated push-ups.

- Some static hold work & gymnastics-beginners stuff on the parallel bars.

- Swing-"roll-outs"

- dragon flag.

today: slight doms in my pecs and triceps. No longer in my shoulders. Less seems to be more in the case that I can do the above again tomorrow.

Yesterday:
- 8, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 wide grip pull ups. Hanging for a minute after it was done.

- Half hour cycling.

Today:
- 8 x 5 neutral grip pull-ups
- 6 x 5 one handed rows
- 3 x 10 rows (pronated)
- 4 dragon flags

Due to being unable to sprint (I fucking hate this): fasting.
Both days, little to no time alas.

today:

- 4 x 6 wide grip, thumbless pull-ups.

- 4 chin-ups (explosive)
supersetted with a dragon flag. 5 rounds.

I don't know what happened, but it was incredible easy. Never trained so relaxed before. Pull-ups & chin-ups just got done without any trouble. Granted I have taken care of my weak-spots (core & grip), so I'll see how it goes on wednesday!

(did the same workout on thursday, wasn't nearly as efficient as this one).
