You can't have great workouts without mediocre ones.

Most of the more advanced lifting programs include purposeful mediocre days so that the great days happen, and cycle through highs/lows every few weeks.

Where are you putting your knees on the advanced frogs?

All the same, I got bit more peace of mind putting in a few burpees afterwards for the challenge.

Knees rest just above the elbows, so the Afrogs look like this at the moment:

Pistols? 1 Arm push ups? Frog pose? I am in awe of your badassery, not to mention inspired! Way to freaking kickass; your progress pics are awesome too - looking good!

Keep up the seriously awesome work :D

Thanks, your thread's pretty impressive as well--cutting out booze is haaaarrd (says the college kid). Let's both get sixpacks to make it worth it! =D

You're awesome and your workouts are ridiculous!

Going into the avatar state to do your workouts is not fair...

LAWL it starts out as Avatar state and by the end it's like... BLAAAAAAARG state. Sometimes my mind wanders to the point where I started outlining a paper while practicing 1-arm pushups.

Monday recap, before heading off to yoga.

Warmup: 5 min treadmill walk/jog.

Dynamic skills, 3 rounds:

Dips x8

BW pistols x5 each leg

1-arm pushup x5 each arm Y'know what makes a difference? Not looking at the ground. Guess how long it took me to figure that one out?

Jump-switch lunges x20, x40 last round

Conditioning/strength, 3 rounds:

Halfway home chinups x4

Elbow lever leg lifts x8-10 Strangely, these become exponentially more difficult by the end, even though the movement is not very big. Interesting.

Negative tuck dragon flag x7 A lot less tuck than last month, with a lot more control. Score.

Static skill, 3 rounds:

Frog ~5s --> Advanced frog ~5s

Horse ~55s

Tuck L-sit ~1.5s Think I could go longer on these, just a matter of coordination.

Full back bridge ~20-25s

Tuck back lever ~10s

Finger plank ~80s

1-leg side planks ~100s

Reverse plank ~110s

Total: 57:33 min. LONGEST TIME EVER. The first two circuits were done in a decent time (33:35), but def took my sweet ass time with those statics re-doing some L-sits.

Very nice work. Awesome progress on the dragon flags.

The whole where are you looking thing on one arm pushups never occurred to me. I look ahead of me, not at the ground, the only time I look at the ground is when I'm placing my hand down.

Holy crap, dude, I've never thought of that! :/ I always get caught up in the looking down, "OMG I don't wanna fall flat on my face" thing. Never thought of like... changing where I look. Yeesh.

You are rocking it and I am majorly inspired by your progress!

Where you look is actually a huge balance factor, since it affects how you shift your weight accordingly. If I do pistols looking straight ahead, I'm gonna tip over. But if I watch the seam where the wall meets the ceiling--bam, up and up we go. Same goes for yoga. When your arm is outstretched, follow it with your eyes and chin and you'll get the fullest benefit.

Morning yoga sequence for rest days:

Warmup: 5x split squats, 5x rotational squats

Cat --> Cow --> Repeat x 4-5

Downward Dog --> Upward Dog --> Child --> Cobra --> Child --> Repeat x 3

Downward Dog --> 3-legged Dog --> Right Lunge --> Extended Side Angle --> 3-legged Dog --> Repeat on left side, end by bringing feet together and coming up into Mountain

Mountain --> Tree --> Warrior 3 --> Dancer --> Repeat on left side

Eagle --> Repeat on left side --> Good to go!

Which reminds me, gotta get some headstand/handstand practice in later. Headstands are significantly easier than they used to be, still a bit slow getting into position, but handstands are like... level 0. Lawl.

Are you kicking up into a headstand with no assist of any sort? Then attempting to get up into a handstand from there?

Usually I go from tripod --> tuck --> headstand, but for yoga headstands I kick up and keep the wall close enough to tap on it once or twice before leveling out. For handstands, I've yet to master the kickup, but I can almost inch into it with the wall-walking method.

Muchas gracias! Yeah, cutting out drinking is really tough, but then I remember not everybody has what it takes to be a total badass like us, heheh. Six packs ahoy! Okay, I really need to start that PvP thread...

Wow, great numbers on the advanced frog. And 100 sec on the finger plank- I did those for the first time this week and got like 10 sec. I think if I did it for 100 sec my fingers would fall off

For the finger plank, it's more on the base of my knuckles, so it's like half-hands, and working from there to legit Al Kavadlo-style fingertips. You can also use that hand position for yoga as a strength/mobility boost, when doing the 4-legged poses like Cat/Cow, Downward Dog, etc. A real nightmare is Upward Dog on half-hands, lawl. I can't hold that one for more than 10 seconds.

Workout recap:

Warmup: 5 min treadmill walk/jog.

Dynamic skills, 3 rounds:

Dips x8

BW pistols x5 each leg Keeping the reps low in favor of improving form/balance.

1-arm pushup x5 each arm Given that these are still half-reps, threw in some extra for the right arm on the last round. It's too easy to get lazy with these, and then I've missed out on the awesomeness of doing 'em in the first place.

Jump-switch lunges x20, x40 last round

Conditioning/strength, 3 rounds:

Halfway home chinups x4

Elbow lever leg lifts x8-12

Negative tuck dragon flag x7

x3 more chins because dangit, need more volume if I'm gonna get out of this plateau

Static skill, 3 rounds:

Frog ~5s --> Advanced frog ~25s Itching to start the next progression. Stay tuned for next week!

Horse ~55s

Tuck L-sit ~2s

Full back bridge ~30-40s

Tuck back lever ~20-25s Wanted to max these out for today. 30-second holds are in sight.

Finger plank ~100s

1-leg side planks ~100s

Reverse plank ~100s Planks after balls-out statics = total wreckage.

Total: 56:26 min, plus those extra chins.

I'm blown away that you can do planks after those statics. I'm always so drained afterwards.

Your back lever hold times should be in the area where they start to really take a lot out of you (and it only gets worse). I never could hold an advanced frog that long, does it have the whole body draining effect that the back lever has? The tuck planche is beginning to for me as my hold times rise, but I passed through the advanced frog stand stage without any longer hold times, I really don't know what's its like to hold a long advanced frog stand.

At some point I imagine the planche series becomes the king of whole body thrashing exercises, surpassign the back lever and even front lever (which is remarkably efficient at taking you from rarin to go to nearly immobile in a matter of seconds), I'm curious as to where that point is.

It's brutal, but it makes sure I got the most out of my workout. With baby progressions, I'm never sure I used my muscles to their fullest, so plank work = combo finisher to cover all my bases, plus it's extra insurance for the bad back.

Longer advanced frogs means more wrist and shoulder stamina and less worrying about falling over, so you can focus more on keeping your haunches tucked up there and it def engages the core more. The higher and tighter the tuck, the closer it feels to the back lever, so you're probably already familiar with that feeling. Since 25 seconds x 3 surpasses the cumulative 60 seconds recommended on Dragon Door, do you think it's safe for me to move on to the tuck planche and 1-legged back lever? Otherwise my workouts are getting pretty long with all these extended hold times, and I'd rather use that extra time towards directly useful things--like getting a damn chinup, lawl.

your workouts are so badass. ive borrowed horse stance from you this week.very fitting! can't wait to get to even half yr level

Fantastic, horse stance is AWESOME for riders! <3 It's like a straight-backed two-point (or half-seat, jumping position, etc) without the pony.
