Next week I’ll hopefully get to move up on push-ups. I get to add another set to my straight bridges. ­čÖé

Incline Push Ups



Short Bridges


Straight Bridges


I am happy that I got to move up to Straight Bridges today  ^_^

I had to REALLY push to get the last 5 push-ups.

Okay, so those 100 total squats on Wednesday were over-kill. I’m still sore 3 days later. I skipped my workout yesterday and am not planning on doing any bridge work till next Friday. Hopefully those squats won’t kill my thighs again. I had some health issues yesterday that also slowed me down, but today I am feeling┬á a little better and was able to do a little bit on the Handstand Push Up progression.

1 minute Crow Stand


35 second Handstand with wall


I am not trying to make much progress with this, just slowly work my way up, so 5 seconds was exactly the increase I was looking for this time. I could have made it to 40 or 45 seconds, but I was feeling good after the 35.

Crow stand
1 minute
Handstand with heels on wall
30 seconds


3 minute rests between each set

I waited late today to get my workout done, which is okay because this workout is one of the easiest ones of the week for me.

I take a 3 minute rest between every set.

Short Bridges




Crow Stands




This was a good workout, I added 25 reps to my short bridges this week, and did 15 sconds more than I needed to on my crow stand on accident, though it was still easy. I didn’t need to stop with the short bridges, but I am enjoying using the “Keep some in the bank” method mentioned in the Convict Conditioning book.


2 minutes Headstand

2 minutes Shoulder stand

2 minutes Deep forward bend

2 minutes Matsyendrasana (in each direction)

2 minutes Bhujangasana

2 minutes dead posture


Today I also did 1 minute headstand with my hand in different positios in order to prepare for handstand push-ups.

3 minute rest

2:25 Short Bridge


In just a little while I’ll be kayaking with Jessica too, not sure how long we will go for…
