Grandkai going Hybrid Assassin: Part I

Recommended Posts

Missed a few days again with posting. I thought the challenge ended last sunday. Anyway....

Monday i woke up at a reasonable time after my nightshift. Got up, had a nice cup of coffee and read my Spice & Wolf novel.  After that did my Handstand training, did my wall-stand for about 30 seconds and felt pretty good. Immediately after that my Bodyweight workouts, did 3x7 of KB Front Squat, 12 Push-ups and 6 Chin-ups with again 30+ seconds of resting squat as rest

 

Tuesday didn't go running, woke up groggy as h#ll. So i put some extra effort in my Headstand training and i got a solid 45 seconds. Pretty sure i can hit a minute on Thursday :D 

 

Today (Wednesday) i woke up early because some dumb idiot in my apartment building decided to drill in the wall and it made so much noise i think even people 3 building over heard it. Did my workout of 3x7 One-arm KB Press, 10 Lunges & 12 BW Rows. After that my wall-stand and i got roughyl 35-40 seconds. Hopefully tomorrow my mood & the weather is better so i can get a nice run in so i am prepared for my 10K run in April

How'd it go? Did you hit your minute headstand?

Challenge Review

This challenge didn't go that great, it was fine. It sort of felt like a "Test-challenge" since its anew year with a new way to workout. So quick over the goals and what went well/bad

 

Goal 1: 6-Week Hybrid "Athlete" program

BAD: This was too hard for me, the big amount of reps, the new movements with Kettlebells & the weight of my KB. 

GOOD: When i figured the weight was too heavy i started doing just some strength training with the kettlebells and now i feel a bit more comfortable with the weight

NEXT: Next challenge (don't know a name or theme yet, but will come soon) i'm going to use a Double KB Simple Strength Endurance program from Onnit Academy.

 

Goal 2: Run faster

BAD: Didn't run enough, normally i recharge in the weekends but i had something every saturday and sunday and that depleted my energy a lot, luckily the busy weekends are over and i can recharge. So i'm expecting to run more frequently again next week.

GOOD: When i figured the weight was too heavy i started doing just some strength training with the kettlebells and now i feel a bit more comfortable with the weight

NEXT: Use Runkeeper instead of Nike+ and get back into good running shape.

 

Goal 3: Handstand

BAD: A bit the same as with running, not enough. 

GOOD: Got close to a minute on a headstand, just need to keep that flow for the rest.

NEXT: Focus a bit more on wall-stands for my shoulders strength and practice jumping up & bailing.

 

Side-Goal: 100% Gaming Spiderman Shattered Dimensions

BAD: While playing didn't enjoy the grind for all the achievements the whole month.

GOOD: When i stopped playing Spiderman i played a game i haven't finished yet and really enjoyed just playing the game.

NEXT: Focus less finishing a game on 100% a month and just play games i haven't finished yet and if i REALLY enjoy it ill get it to 100% just out of fun.

 

 

Verdict

So a lot of bad, good & next stuff. I'm going to try and post my next challenge tomorrow/this week so it won't be lost in the forums :D 

Thank you for joining me (even tough not a lot has happend) and hopefully i'll see you in my next challenge and hopefully i can be a better SUPPORTER to your challenge next time

Good way to view the first challenge of the year, and looks like you took a lot away from it, so I'm going with "grats on a successful challenge!" Sorry to hear about the busy weekends, that can really take it out of you when they're back to back. Here's to a better rest of the year.
