maenumania learns the secrets of spiderman

I loved the Maguire Spiderman movies. It seemed to me so much the way someone who suddenly developed superpowers would act (I like The Incredibles and the early years of Smallville for the same reason). I have not seen either of the Garfield Spidey movies, though, so I can't compare.

 

You are starting well - just keep at it!

I'm glad to see that you have moved on to the Assassins. I too love your theme for this challenge, very clever. I think you will do great in your pursuit of being Spiderman.  Maybe you could show your progress in comic form or in movies.    Good luck on this challenge, kick its ass!

That Garfield poster is awesome! :D

 

I watched the amazing spiderman 2 last thursday and it wasn't bad, but it seemed to me, everybody that died in a special way in this movie became a super bad guy.

"Oh no, that guy just feel on his back!"

"HAHA, I'm evil wheels! Everybody prepare to be doomed!"

But hey, I don't want to tell any spoilers ;)

 

 

I added a progress spreadsheet to my first post

 

My hand is still injured, don't know how much time it'll take or if I shall go to see a doctor next week? 

I did my daily stretching and look what I can do!

Touched the ground!

 

 

I touched the ground! Finally, now I try the same part sitting on the ground, it's gonna be harder because of the lacking gravity that helped to touch the ground before!

 

My first week wasn't bad, but I couldn't do any workouts, although I did some squats and tried my luck on the pistols. Hope to get my hand healed quick, so I can start with my other goals!

That is great! I can't tell you how many years I went without being able to touch my toes. :)

I hope your hand heals, quickly, too. Motivation like yours needs an outlet. :)

Being able to touch the floor was such an awesome feeling when I managed to do it :D Quite frankly, I thought I wouldn't be able to do it at first, I was even less bendy than you in your first picture. I was only able to touch my knees... Good job!

 

(and I also imagined a Garfield spiderman too, and thought it was awesome..)

Thanks guys, it's a great feeling to see that the stretching really helps and works! :)

 

I did some leg exercises this morning and think about to run after work, let's see how the weather is in the evening, else I'm gonna do my stretches and maybe play just dance ;) 

 

I can't wait that my hand is fully healed and I can finally get on these handstand practices!

Woot woot woot! :D

You'll probably find you'll be able to grasp your feet whilst sitting before you can manage to get your palms flat. I can easily wrap my hands around my feet but I still have to warm up and stretch a fair bit before I can get my palms on the deck.

When you practice your bends remember to think about trying to fold from the hip rather than curving the spine. It'll be tight hamstrings that will be hindering you, if you stretch them out every day you'll be surprised at how quickly you'll see an improvement.

I highly doubt that this is anything you don't already know, but I'll post the link anyway. It just gives a couple of slightly different examples.
