Thank you! I hit 225 last year about this time and haven’t seen it since. I was hoping to get back there and was totally thrilled to surpass it! Even if it was only by five pounds.
BP all paused WG
Well looking back at the video, the last set wasn’t so paused…
Called it. Just feeling wonky again.
1x1/80 slooowwww as molasses in Winter took 10 minutes
Squat to bench
Seated cable rows
Bunch chins and easy inverted rows sprinkled in.
The rings have got my shoulders working again.
That is awesome with the rings.
Lol! Thanks! Probably the best $20 I have spent on this journey.
I kept flippin my phone round trying to work out which way up you were!
WOW!!! Check it OUT! That is impressive!!!
Those are fun to do.
Class chicken. What’s it feel like to be a vampire? lol
Wish I was that flexible
Freakin’ sweet, CL!!
I agree, rings are the least expensive, best piece of upper body equipment a person can buy. Add a box to raise the feet level with the hands, and rings totally revolutionize pushups. The twist motion they enable makes pull-ups a tendon-friendly, full-back-and-biceps exercise. Add a box to raise the feet a bit above the hands, and ring rows, aka fat-man pull-ups, become a legitimate rowing exercise.
Thanks for talking me into getting them!
Just happy to bench pain free!
That would be bat! As in batshit crazy
Whoa there! Let’s not get crazy!
I can do the inverted rows though.
Absolutely starving, can’t concentrate on lifting because all can think about is eating…lol
Maybe try again later.
Things I have figured out this go around
- I need to do more twisty things
- Need more single leg work
- Still have no lats
- Need to work on posterior chain my ass is not holding up its end of the bargain
Single leg glute bridges and Bulgarian split squats may very well address items 2 and 4. That’s exactly where I’m at - doing the low weight, single leg stuff to get my glutes and posterior chain pulling (ha literally) their own weight again.
That’s what I was thinking. Yuk!
Right?! I was “inspired” by @JMaier31 who started doing the Bulgarians and keeps feeling better and better.
Last Wednesday it was literally 90 degrees. Right now the wind chill 19
BW stuff inside
Bench dips (coffee table)
