Phylanx - laughing on the way down makes the bump at the bottom hurt less.  (I keep telling my self that at parkour class!)

Waldo - ok... pose is darned impressive. But I have to admit I was initially more impressed that you have the large an expanse of uncluttered floor!  (Goes off to unclutter something.)

Did some cat/cow, my cat walked in at one point and gave me a disdainful look that plainly said I make a terrible cat. Added in some winged rat pigeon pose, with terrible form, my hips are NOT flexible. I ended up with most of my weight on my hands, and my butt not touching the ground, but it's a start. Also some downward dog, not helped by my own dog, who wanted me to throw the ball, goddamit!

 

Gonna work on a crow pose, but I dunno if I have the strength or wrist flexibility, but I'll try. Also going to try out a bear walk, but I have limited space so I may end up face planting into the couch...

Well it wasn't pretty, but with all the straddle work I've done in the last few months, I was able to at least get into firefly for a bit, though I couldn't get the kink out of my legs.  Still, feet were off the ground, so it counts.

Nice titles, Nuala!

 

This morning while doing the Bird Dog pose...... I was attacked by a big, ferocious, fully grown beastie who decided it was a great time to come up and start rubbing my face and purr, LOL!  Then, just when I thought he gave up, he comes back and discovers I'm wearing a hoodie and promptly starts to play with the strings!  About the time I stop laughing (still holding the pose, mind you) his brother shows up and decides to join in the "fun".

 

Good grief, LOL!!  :D

Would spider-man planks (or crossover spiderman planks) count for this?  I just realized I'm doing them as well and might toss them on the sheet.  Figured I could stack them with the spider pushups.

Well, spiderman is not an animal but it has spider in its name so I suppose we could count it. I don't know how it will compare to the spider pushups, I'll have to find a ratio.

 

And I forgot the spider title!

I was feeling really smug with my 65 sec of crow pose, then I looked at twilson's entry--400 seconds?!? My hat is off to you!

Keep in mind that Crow Pose is one of my goals.  I'm spending at least a half an hour every other day attempting them.  I just added in more time yesterday.  I'll clock in another half an hour tonight, hopefully before the clock stops.

 

I'll keep the Spiderman Planks off the chart.  Makes everyone's life easier.  Besides, I can just do more Spider pushups.

So I decided to go back and attempt crow again, and see how far I could get into firefly...I was expecting face/butt plants (I did tons of pushups yesterday for the Adventurers' Mini Challenge) but my body completely refused to take any weight off my feet! That was interesting. So, back to the easier poses for me!

Is Snake pose one of your goals as well? B/c if you hold off on those tonight, I actually have a chance at one of the categories. :playful:

Are Spiderman pushups the name of those evil things where you are spread eagle on your fingers and toes trying to keep the floor off your nose?

 

Nah, they start out like a regular pushup, but as you are lowering you also raise your right knee to your right elbow.  Then return your leg as you rise.  Repeat on your left.  They're good for all sorts of your bits.

Consider the snake badge yours.  Or at least... Consider me no longer contributing to the snake badge.

 

@Nuala: If at all possible, can you just reward me one badge (Member of Murder being my favorite)?  I'd rather not bump someone else out of the running.
