    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
