WEEKS 73-76

5 Mar

Bent Arm Straddle Planche – 7 attempts (all under 2 secs)
Bent Arm Straddle Jumps – 2 x 10

I was nowhere near holding this for a sustained time, the jumps were much better because I could pop up into position and at least accumulate a little bit of time in there.

11 Mar

Bent Arm Straddle Planche – 7 attempts (all under 2 secs)
Bent Arm Straddle Jumps – 2 x 10

Same again, a little better this time.

17 Mar

L-Sit – 8 x 15 secs

My inconsistency has cost me and I’ve lost some of my basic strength, meaning it’s pointless trying anything too advanced.

23 Mar

Bent Arm Straddle Planche – 2,2,3,3 secs, 2,2,1,1 secs
Tuck planche to Bent Arm Straddle – 5,4
Bent Arm Straddle Jumps – 3 x 10
Straddle PPPu – 2 x 7

This was Osvaldo Lugones next workout progression, the PPPU are actually easier because of the straddle stance. I quite liked the tuck to bent arm straddle, the first few were quite graceful but by the end I was basically falling with style.

28 Mar

Bent Arm Straddle Planche – 2,2,3,3 secs, 3,2,2,3 secs, 1,2,1,1 secs
Tuck planche to Bent Arm Straddle – 2 x 5
Bent Arm Straddle Jumps – 10,10,7
Straddle PPPu – 2 x 7

Slightly better than last time, he suggests four rounds and I was trying to build up the volume without falling to pieces.
