I just did yoga today, nothing else.

 

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

 

I did change my headstand from linking my fingers behind my head and using my whole forearms to balance to now using my two hands placed where my elbows normally would be, and balancing that way. Bhujangasana is getting much easier.

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

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

Using my Gymnast rings again for a version of pull-ups. Horizontal pull-ups. It looks like a push-up but upside down.

Horizontal Pull-ups:

1:10

3min rest

1:6

3min rest

Full Squats(body-weight)

2:10

 

I am taking it realllly easy, because I am sick, and I just don’t feel like rushing. Still following the progressions in Convict Conditioning. I spent forever lamenting not having a place to do pull-ups in St. Augustine, but now I think I’ll just use playgrounds during school hours so that it won’t bother people.

 

I have a bit of a wheeze and a cough and I sniff pretty often, but I got tired of taking inhaled steroids for the wheeze so I figured I could workout and do yoga and that would fix me up better.

A bit later I set up my gymnast rings and used them to do push-ups

2:20 Incline Push-ups

2:10 Leg raises on the floor.

 

It all felt great.
