Reply To: Full Planche (Oct 2019)


WEEKS 60-63

1 Dec

Arnold Press – 3 x 12 x 8.5kg
Weighted Pull ups – 3 x 6 x 15kg
Handstand practice – 2,3,2, 30 secs

I’ve been doing a 30 second wall handstand with flutter kicks and today I tried free handstands. I filmed it and it looked like a real mess so I need to work on straight body position and also awareness of what a good position feels like.

4 Dec

Pseudo Waistline Holds – 2 x 4 x 5 secs
PPPu with feet against the wall – 4,5
PPPu negatives – 8,8
Planche Lean – 2 x 4 x 15 secs

7 Dec

Arnold Press – 3 x 12 x 8.5kg
Weighted Pull ups – 6 x 20kg, 6 x 15kg, 6 x 10kg, 8 x BW
Pike Pushups – 4 x 9

I tried mixing it up with a sort of drop set in pull ups, will go back to the normal exercises in a few weeks after a busy period.

2 WEEKS OFF – I tried planche on the 11th and I could barely do 4 seconds so I decided to give my body another break.

27 Dec

Advanced Tuck Planche – 4,14,12,12,10 secs

A personal best by 1 second, video below. I have already started training for the straddle planche but I’ll have another go at holding a straddle for a few seconds and modify other exercises.
