Daily Exercise Digest 19

1 Hour Yoga
10 Pull ups
2 mile run

10 pushups
15 pullups
1 attempt at THIS (pretty funny - TOUGH too!)

It was my birthday on Saturday, and Easter on Sunday - made for a very busy weekend with no real workouts. I gained 4 or 5 pounds too! Yikes! Luckily that weight isn't a big deal and it'll go away or I'll turn it into muscle! Oh yeah!

Daily Exercise Digest 18

  • Yoga was pretty brutal. Did wall handstands... amazing how I used to be able to do multiple sets of wall-ups (handstand pushups with feet/back against a wall) but they are VERY difficult now. Once I got my feet up, my brain said "Oh yeah this isn't that hard" - so I was able to do the handstand against the wall.
  • 1 long trip around Costco pushing a heavy cart
  • 20 pushups
  • 3 rounds of Just Dance 2 with my beautiful wife

Tripod Crow to Headstand - Better Alignment
Tripod Headstand (Sirsasana II) - Side - Needs work! Straighten up!
Tripod Headstand -  Front - PASTY
Silly Trying to work on Planche stuff... not well

Daily Exercise Digest 16

Yeah I messed up on the Daily Digests this weekend. However I DID do some muscle ups on monkey bars that made it slightly more like doing muscle ups on rings, which is apparently easier. Still need to do it on a bar.
And yesterday.
1 Mile Run - I need this pace in longer runs.

1 Hour Yoga - Was able to do full Tripod/Crow Headstand for 6-10 seconds 2 times - Tougher than I thought!
3 Muscle-up attempts - the bar at my work's gym is definitely not optimal for my stage in Muscle-up progression. I will get there though.

This is not me - but I will try to get me doing this soon!

Daily Exercise Digest 5

I was hoping to get a run in but it didn't happen. Kids!
I did go shopping with a 3 year old and a 1 year old THAT was exercise!
While trying to put the 1 year old to sleep I did 40 Squats while holding her (about 22 lbs)
Played soccer for about 15 minutes while holding the same daughter.
Chased, tickled, wrassled, pushed on swings, and enjoyed my kids.
Overall it was a relaxing but occasionally quite active day.
Didn't get quite the workout I wanted, but that's okay!

Daily Exercise Digest 4 - Sugar

20 dips
2.5 mile run with my gorgeous wife - some mean hills!
50 pushups
10 ab rollouts (Had to do SOME of those today!)

SUGAR - My biggest weakness:
As I eat this Rice Krispie Treat...
Here is a brutal post on the dangers of Sugar from Feruggia.
Yikes! Scary stuff. Especially with the prevalence now of even more unnatural sugars like High Fructose Corn syrup - it affects my corn allergy. The more I continue to eat it the worse it seems to be getting as well.
Anybody have tips on getting rid of sugar? I'm a sweet-FIEND - what to do!
