So I caved in and joined a gym so I do weight lifting and calisthenics now. I have gained about 15lbs since I started lifting. Hope to add progress pics, workouts, food plans and more …
I have not been on here in awhile :( . I started going to the gym, but still working on calisthenics and what not. I will update later with some pr’s in the weight room and if I have got any new moves down.
The reason i worked out inside today
Finally made a video of some of the stuff I do at the park.
Wow its been almost 2 years since I have lifted weights heavy weights at a gym and I still continue to gain muscle and keep up my fitness level. Never knew my back looked like this lol.
5x rounds with 3 mins rest in between
10 Kettle ball swings
20 pull ups
30 push ups
So been doing paleo kinda for about 3 weeks. It sucks not eating pasta, but within the first week I lost 5lbs of what idk. Im havent lost or gained any since. I think it got rid of some bloatyness. My abs seem to be coming in more as well . We will see how this goes.
Did a free workout at a crossfit gym too. 7 wall balls then 7 burpees as many rounds as I can in 7 mins. I think I will join the gym in a few weeks. But I will still do my Calisthenics stuff on the side.
Breakfast: ham/egg omlet
Snack: Some form of fruit smothie/ nuts/ or fruits (grapes, apple, banana)
Lunch: Normally a loaded salad , unless I can find something else
Dinner: This is the hard one I eat alot of fish/shrimp/lean meats/ I just have a hard time finding stuff to go with it.
I always go back and forth as to what I want to do. I enjoy both but just not sure which one I should put my all into
Can do it anywhere any time
You can accomplish some amazing feats
Calisthenics Cons :
Lack of training partners
Gets boring at times
I miss weights
Varity of workouts
Loss of control over workouts
Restricted to one place and certain times
What I may do is just a combo of both, but once I pick up running track again next season something will have to budge.
Challenge of the Week:
Complete as many muscles ups as you can with out touching the ground. If you cant do a muscle up do regular pull ups.
Completed: 15 muscle ups.
* Its crazy how just 3 months ago I did my first muscle up and could barley do more than one at a time. With hard work I’m up to 15, wonder where ill be in another 3 months .
Just dont let this be you!
See what I did there, get it get it ! My version of the WOD. Well to put more content on there I will be challenging all of you and myself to a challenge of the week. These will be all bodyweight/calisthenics stuff.
COW #1 - Dips
Perform as many dips as you can straight. Full extension at the top and get deep.
I completed 72 dips.
I do pure calisthenics at the moment, its something new and exciting for me. I do have a 45lb kettle ball I use maybe once a week. The goals give me something to look forward to.
Warm up: Jump rope, stretch, practice human flags/planche/levers
30 muscle ups
100 push ups straight
5 sets of 20 dips
200 push ups (4 sets of 50)
50 decline push ups
50 close hand push ups
50 incline push ups
15 min run
variety of abs for 8 mins
2 sets of 10 leg raises
Working on the human flag. Took me about a month to be able to do it. But I am far from where I want to be.
