the un official workout thread


Recommended Posts

I started taking TwinLab ripped fuel 5x and continuing my calesthenics.

I got a bottle for free and figured id see if it makes any difference.

 

key to handstand pushups is to focus very strongly on all your muscles

balance is key, without good stable balance first youll never even begin to do the pushup.

I did a lot of handstands and pull ups/dips/ and noticed it getting significantly easier to remain stable and keep form.

warm up/stretching....

 

i do it.

i usually foam roll before a work out

then stretch whatever im using that day.... upper or lower body.

 

stuff like this:

 

 

i no longer get hip pain/soreness/whatever when squatting. no more shoulder/rotator soreness/pain when during or recovering from benching.

seems to help you recover a lot quicker too.

i highly recommend getting a foam roller and doing a warm up.

significantly reduces your chance of injury

 

 

I need to be better about stretching...thanks for the reminder!

So since reading Convict Conditioning I have seen good results.

 

Routine: Leg Raises x 100

Push Ups x 50

Squats x 50

Wind sprinting.

 

For as simple a routine as it is it's impressed me. Arms are significantly stronger and defined. As well as my legs and core. Plus it's free. Oh and I add in freeweights too.

Excellent, man. How long have you been using it?

I have heard diamond pushups fuck your wrist up... try just close hand where your thumbs are touching but fingers are still pointing forward. I know the military stresses not doing diamond pushups even.

 

If you look around long enough you will find some "expert", somewhere, saying this about any and every exercise. It depends on the person in most situations. If you have wrist problems, then sure it will mess it up, but beyond that I'm pretty sure that if you don't do anything stupid like try and go balls out while your wrist joint is grinding like a meth-head's teeth...you should be fine.

do tripod pushups train a different muscle group or something? i understand how diamond grip and wide grip would, but tripod not so much. im guessing its mainly a core thing?

 

see when i think of tripod im thinking

both arms flat on ground and then your head (tripod). get balance and go up into a hand stand. then start your hand stand pushups.

 

id do the hand stand pushups over the tripod pushups any day

 

 

and today i finally got 4 muscle ups on a row, with a kip.

 

and i can land bar muscle ups ftw again, with a slight kip

 

kip kip kip

to much cofeee
